Family beach getaway at Masasa Beach, Tingloy Island, Batangas

As I turned 46, we diverted the usual family beach getaway by being a kid again at Gingerbread House in Alfonso, Cavite. But my brother wanted to swim and so I recommended Masasa Beach in Tingloy Island, Batangas. Just last summer of this year, there has been much bustle about this beach and I was curious to find out for myself what this raving is all about.

My hubby and I are regular Starbucks Coffee customers who would go there to while away time. Lately, we ventured out for something new. This time we tried the refreshing alternative to coffee which are the “milk teas”. After my follow-up check with my OB-Gyne, my hubby enjoined the whole family to taste the milk teas of Bon AppeTEA!

My fast and one-day solo trip in Baguio City

This is my 6th visit in Baguio City. I was tasked by my brother-in-law who is now based in California for some important errand in his hometown. I was so excited for I will be trekking Mt. Ulap with Mang Daniel, my contact trail guide after my task is done. Unfortunately, during the night of my trip he informed me that Mt. Ulap is closed due to approaching typhoon. It was just fine because when I arrived in the bus terminal by 5:00 am, there was a downpour and it was so cold, not perfect for my first solo female hike.
