Air Asia Philippines Diaries Day 2

March 4. Day 2 of the Air Asia Philippines Media Tour.

I woke up very early after sensing that Blue Palawan resort hotel actually has one of the finest views Of the Palawan sunrise. The break of dawn is an amazing sight, complemented by the sound of the chirping birds.

A little bit later breakfast was served. Prior to checkin i opted to have chorizo recado with no rice for breakfast. But the chorizo really screams for carbs. So i gave in. I ordered. A cup of fried rice.

Palawan Travel Diaries Day 1

It’s undeniable. Di na talaga matatakasan.

Summer is (almost) here!

In just a few days from now people from the metro would start the exodus to the beaches in Puerto Galera, Batangas and Boracay and filling up hotel rooms for the weekend staycation.

As early as January, I was already firming up my summer 2015 plans. And among the cities i considered for the holiday break is the paradise known as El Nido.

LG G3 Field Test

LG one of the leading Korean phone manufacturers has launched its flagship phone model theLG G3. And just before Christmas I was lucky enough to got hold of the phone to do a review and test its capabilities.

The new LG G3 has sleek thin body, slightly curved to fit in the palm of your hands.

Performance-wise i have no qualms in using this phone. In fact i brought the phone with me during my recent travels especially in Tangub City and during the Lakbay Norte Media Tour.
