Varekai Day

So after a number of times of talking about it and weighing if we really want to see the show or not... Arvic and I decided last minute (like just the week before the show started) to buy tickets.


Then we started counting the days... we were that excited. And then our Varekai day came...

It was rainy that day. We took pics as we approached the big tent.


Of course we wanted proof that we were there... so here's our pics with the tent. Haha!


There were several booths just as you get in the front area of the tent. They were selling popcorn, softdrinks and hotdogs. Made us feel we were really at a circus. Kulang na lang cotton candy!

Here's a very happy boy with his popcorn and drink. Super excited sya!


Here's the inside of the tent... well more of another reception area in one of the "wing" of the tent.


There was a photobooth as well set-up by Sunlife (one of the sponsors), all you have to do is "like" their FB page then your photo is free. Here's ours:


We were told that we can go inside the big tent already.. so this is the only shot I got from the inside before they announced that all phones and cameras should be turned off and kept.


The show was ama----zing. I loved it!!! Most of the stunts were unbelievable and the costumes were really a feast for the eyes. Well worth the ticket. The venue was really intimate for a 'circus' event. I bet you'll enjoy the show even if you get the cheapest tickets. ;) Go go go!


You can inquire and get tickets HERE. Tip: Tickets are cheaper during weekdays ;D

CARPE DIEM!

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.


I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...


Exploring the resort..




I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....




The Bontoc Musuem!









Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)



So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
