On our third day in Phuket, we caught up on things we didn't get a chance to do the past two days. We woke up extra early to go to the beach to watch the sunrise, had a poolside breakfast at the hotel, then took a quick dip in the beach. The best thing about this day was that we weren't in a hurry at all. We took our time and enjoyed every moment of it!

The second day was no doubt the highlight of our trip. We went island hopping to the various beaches of Phi Phi Islands (apparently, there are two Phi Phi Islands -- Phi Phi Lay, and Phi Phi Don). We visited Khai Nok Island, Monkey Beach, Viking Cave, Pileh Lagoon, and Maya Bay.

Crossed another country off my list -- Thailand! Although I didn't visit the country's capital which is Bangkok (I'm saving that for another time!), Phuket is just as exquisite with the crazy shopping, the insanely spicy food, and the pristine white-sand beaches.

One of the things I love doing lately is trying out new restaurants around the Metro. And to document my foodie adventures, I even created an account on Zomato where I regularly post my reviews. Always eating out can get costly so when Gourmet Society announced that they have a loyalty card that takes 20% off your bill, I got quite excited!
Gourmet Society Philippines offers membership cards giving 20% discount to over 200 restaurants in Metro Manila with no minimum purchase. Membership for one year is Php 1,999 but the awesome team behind Gourmet Society offered 10 Gourmet Cards to be given away to my readers! Click here to view the full post and join my giveaway.

I think I've been bitten by the travel bug! I've been to quite a lot of places in my lifetime but they're never enough and I feel that there is so much more to see! As early as now, I've started planning some of my trips for the year (I'll be in Phuket this weekend!). I have work on weekdays so I can't really be away for long. But on weekends, I like going on road trips, exploring new places, and challenging myself to do things I've never done before (hello, scuba diving!). On this particular weekend, I visited Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar.
If you haven't heard of it, it's a heritage park located in a huge property in Bataan where they reconstructed traditional Filipino houses from the 18th to the early 20th century. It really felt like I was transported into the past with the cobblestone streets and picturesque architecture, complete with a breathtaking view of the mountains, some rice fields, and the beach. An overnight stay wasn't enough because there were so many things to do!

Last January, Rexona launched their new MotionSense technology with their New Pinoy Mover campaign. A New Pinoy Mover is someone who knows that every move makes a difference and lives a life that inspires and empowers others. Rexona handpicked fifty people from various industries to represent this campaign. If you're wondering who these people are, you may click the "Read More" button or scroll down the page.
The MotionSense technology is the first of its kind with its patented technology that is released by movement. It contains microcapsules filled with fragrance that burst with friction. This technology will be particularly useful to those people who are always on the go! :)

I promised to myself that I would pursue my new-found love for travelling, and make the most out of the little free time I have. A few weeks ago, I traveled twelve hours to Bontoc, Mountain Province for work. Since it was a mere forty-five minutes away from Sagada, I decided to extend my stay for one more day. It was a day full of adventure and a lot of firsts—I went spelunking at Sumaging Cave, traversed mountains to swim in ice-cold waters of the Bomod-Ok Falls, tried Sagada's famous homemade yoghurt at the Yoghurt House, and saw the popular rice terraces for the first time!
