#HalerBaler Day 1

February last year, we celebrate mama’s birthday in Baler. It was our first time in Baler so I’m really excited that time. Though I haven’t planned our itinerary because I thought we were going to surf and that’s it. Hahaha!

So yeah, we arrived at the Balete Tree around 10 am or so. My kuya didn’t understand why this tree was a tourist spot. I don’t understand it either but you see, we considered a place a heritage site when it reaches a specific age but we never considered a tree to be something when in fact we should right?

So yeah, we went to Balete to take a picture and all, I think this tree is 300 years old (or so)

After less than hour from the Balete tree we reached our destination; Costa Pacifica. It was nice actually. They have big swimming pool and a small swimming pool for kids. And a few feets away from the shore.


We waited for a bit since we were not allowed to check in yet since it was too early, we relaxed beside the swimming pool because lounges inside the lobby are all occupied. I can’t find the picture of their lobby but it was really nice.

When we were allowed to check in, we had to walk a little bit far (I think) because we rented two rooms in Casita de Bahia. It was nice and secluded but 250 meters away from the shore so if we want to go to the beach, we have to walk for like 5-10 minutes.



We had 2 bungalow type rooms with two beds. The only thing that is bothersome with the room was mosquitoes but other than that, it was nice.


We had to wait for my Tita to arrived before we enjoyed Baler, we ate lunch somewhere I forgot and ate dinner somewhere I forgot too. Hahaha!

We really like to dine here in Baler Surfer Grill, unfortunately, it was closed that time.


After dinner, we settled outside our room to relaxed and drink. Unfortunately, we couldn’t talk and laugh loud because it was an open area and there are guests in the other rooms but we enjoyed nevertheless.


I’m really sorry that I haven’t really tell what happened that time since it happened a year ago but, our first day in Baler wasn’t eventful at all. Wait for our Day 2 in Baler. Day 2 was when I learned how to surf so yeah, stay updated!

Til next time!



The More The Merrier

Last May, my mother and her co-worker held their annual company outing in Club Balai Isabel, Batangas. I am so excited since Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo’s wedding was held there.

Last year we invited my kuya Allen’s family and my tita Beck’s. This time we invited more! We invited my Kuya Allen’s, tita Beck’s and my mommy linda’s family, we’re total of 4 families and we’re more than a dozen so that’s a lot!

You may noticed that my family are really close to each other. Family is very important to us. After all, friends can abandon you but family will stick with you from your happiest to your saddest moment if you treat them family.

I love spending time with my cousins and siblings because they know how to enjoy life, and they know me. They know if I’m feeling lonely or happy. They know how to be with my brattiness and my mood. I don’t need to pretend though I’m not pretending when I’m with my friends. What you see is what you get. But sometimes you have to watch yourself. You might say something that can humiliate yourself or your friends but when I’m with my cousins. I can humiliate myself without being humiliated. Get the point? Hahaha!

So here’s another #travelture with my escalona family. Hope you enjoy 🙂

The first thing we did as we arrived was to take pictures with these babes! I’m okay with having Lynsey (my sister) with me but having Jas is like completing the whole picture. I gained a sister who will not bully me! Lols

Here the new generation of our family. I have lots of nieces and nephews though my other cousins are living outside the country so we can’t be with them as much as we want to.



I’m not usually like this guys! Don’t be too judgemental. Lols! My siblings are not clingy unlike me. So we show our affection by hurting each other! Hahahaha.


We took the opportunity to stroll as we arrived. They have a garden where you can stay or chill. Since it was ages ago when we had a pictures. I grab the the opportunity and here are my favorites.


They also have playground near the big swimming pool so children and children at heart can play.


Look at my mama and titas. They are so beautiful despite of their age!


Of course having our cousins with us meaning an inuman session at night. I’m incharge on the drinks so I brought tequila though my siblings (except kuya allen) don’t like it so we bought other liquors (there’s a convenience store outside the club balai though it’s not 24/7) meaning more tequila for us! Hahahaha.

Here I am, my niece mika took this picture. I’m training her to take good pictures because my sibs don’t really like taking pictures when I am on it. Hahahaha!

I love to share more pictures though I can’t find the pictures that were sent by my cousin.

Up next will be my review on Club Balai Isabel.

So please stand by for more updates 🙂

Summer in January

I already had a draft post about our adventure in Boracay unfortunately, I forgot or didn’t save it. So yeah! Stupid right? Anyways, let’s forget about my stupidity and let me post this.

I maybe forgot what I wrote sentence by sentence but I cannot forget the message of my post. So here we go! Hope you like it.

If you read my previous post you will know that this is not my first time to go to Boracay though it is my first time with my boys. Even if we went to Boracay last January, my Keyn still remembers his stay there, like he always tell me that he wants to go back there because he wants to swim and play on the beach. and every time he sees and feel the sand he will always thought he’s in Boracay. That’s how the impact Boracay did to my son.

Way back 2003 when I first went to Boracay, I can still remember how we arrived at the airport, how we reach the shore when we arrived on the island. How I almost fell because way back then there’s no port that time. I still remember it as if it was happen yesterday.

My son and I both experienced what Boracay can offer. A wonderful and unforgettable experience. Boracay may be mainstream for others. Too crowded and too polluted. but I think it is not too late to save the island. It is just up to us how to save it and to preserved it.

Now, let me share to you some of the pictures we took in Boracay, also I included our itinerary below 🙂



















I wish I could share to you guys all of the pictures we took, unfortunately, this post may get too long for your convenience so I just settle for less after all, less is more right? (or not?! lols)

Since we arrived 2 hours late than expected because of the delayed flight due to silly excuses (LOL!!) we only eat dinner on our supposedly first day.

2nd day – Boracay Adventure 😛

9 am – 12 noon Banana boat, Helmet diving and Flying Fish. We got our package for php 1250 – 1400 each. We had an offer for 1200 each but we gave it up because the other offers that kids can ride the speed boat while we enjoy our rides unfortunately it didn’t happen. Nadala kami sa sales talk shit ni ate nevertheless we enjoyed it naman.

12 noon – 5 pm eat lunch and roam around. We searched for Jonah’s fruitshake snackbar since according to my sister’s research it’s a must try. though we got stuck there for 3 hours I think, because of the rain.

5-10pm eat dinner and buy pasalubong.

Supposedly we planned to party though we decided to sleep because of the early flight the next day. I love rain actually, but due to that incident I might say that I lost my 5% love? lols. hahahhaha

3rd day- Departure time 11:00 am

7:00 am Pack up.

and thanks to tigerair, being so consistent and all, our flight was delayed for 1-2 hours. How great is that right?

So there, what can you say? We may not explore the 50% of what Boracay could offer but hey it won’t be our last time. After 2-3 years I guess, we’ll be back and we’ll have the same experience over and over again but this time it will be better.

So? How’s our Boracay trip? Comments are love!
