March5, Day 3 of the Air Asia Philippines Media Tour and I can’t help but feel giddy and excited.
Woke up really early to have breakfast of toast coffee and omelette at Bill’s Tourist Inn. By 7AM we were picked up by our shuttle and dropped us at Ipil beach to do the island hopping tour. Island hopping is undoubtedly the most popular activity here in El Nido Palawan. To join any island hopping activity you need to pay the mandatory PHP200 environmental fee. The ticket entitles you up to 10day island hopping tour. Tour fees are to be paid separately.
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.

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.
Summer is just around the corner. One would slowly notice that the day is getting longer than the night, and the temperature is slowly rising.
And as a prelude to the much-awaited summer break, I flew to Palawan courtesy of Air Asia Philippines.
During the 4-day junket, we witnessed the signing of the Memorandum of agreement between the provincial government of Palawan, the Palawan Tourism Council and Air Asia Philippines. The agreement launches the Palawan World’s Best tourism campaign with Air Asia as its official airline partner.
