One way to maximize happiness is trying to learn something new everyday. And today, I am lucky to be invited by friends to go fishing in a very serene place.
"Today, I only see 3 prominent dots in this map. I am honestly thrilled to see how far I could go and how these dots are destined to multiply and spread throughout this travel map.
This serves as another motivation for me to toil over the mountains and share & inspire you with my coming adventures, be it little or tremendous.

Our latest escapade started when my stepdad watched television and saw this new cool place in Tayug, Pangasinan. He knows us too well when it comes to outdoor plans, so he requested to see this place for our weekend bonding. He said it was well advertised – looked interesting and absolutely affordable.
Weekend came and this is what happened…
I have always believed that there is always a reason to celebrate each day of our lives. Say, a loved ones’ birthday (for my mom’s post birthday celeb), and/or an accomplished task at hand (a little celeb for me for completing a project), or simply because we all deserve to have a break every once in a while.
Whenever I see an omnipresent color palette of blue and white in an area plus whitewashed cubist houses in it, the eminent island of Santorini, Greece is all I can think of. Couldn’t perceive of any other else.
Who wouldn’t want to see that place? Lately, it has been a trend where entrepreneurs in the Philippines have been injecting this design concept to restaurants and most prominently to resorts. Like trying to replicate it and let customers experience the same feel for a lesser cost. Well, still the ambiance is different but highest appreciation goes to the concept and effort.
Luckily, my family and I got the chance to have a day tour (for my birthday, yey!) on one of the upscale (5-star) resorts in La Union that represents Santorini’s beauty.
