Late January I received an invitation to cover another festival. Without battling an eyelash, I immediately said “Yes”.
Fast Forward: March 7, off we left Metro Manila for a 5-hour drive to Poro Point in La Union for the 3rd Sillag Festival.
Sillag is an Ilokano term meaning moonbeam. And after checking the itinerary and event program most of the events will be held after the sundown.
Panagbenga Festival in Baguio was never in my travel plans for this year. But if you got an invitatpion to Travel back to the Summer Capital of the Philippines to cover the event, would you decline?

So just a few days after I went back in the Metro after a month’s stay in Bacolod, I got a message if I will be free around February 21-23 to go to Baguio for the flower festival. Of course! Who am I to decline such invitations? Hahaha
Last November I was invited to a 4d/3n staycation at Movenpick Resort Hotel in Mactan Cebu. The Reosrt is the only 5-star facility in Mactan Island Cebu. It is located at Punta Engano Lapu-lapu City, just a few meters away from the famed Mactan Shrine.
Movenpick is an international brand of Resort Hotel based in Switzerland. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the friendly staff and checked in to my room.
I have been to Capiz twice. But the last time I was in this part of Western Visayas was in 2009 when Roxas City, known to for its moniker as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, hosted the Western Visayas Tourism Assembly.
There were some attempts on my part, go return to Roxas, but never pushed through. Then last month, i was scheduled to go to Antique. Funny thing is, Roxas, Capiz was originally not part of the plan, but yeah, it pushed through!
