Things meant to be just happen smoothly. Armenia was a country beyond my knowledge, yet I got here with no fuss at all like how I got in Dubai and became the best and life changing phase of my life.
"Today, I only see 3 prominent dots on 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 upcoming adventures, be it little or tremendous.

Sharing to you my first time to travel out of country alone. Nonetheless, I met my friends working and living there which made my travel more fun and spontaneous that made me so confident not to prepare any itinerary at all. Hence, expect a not so detailed article about this trip because I went a little loose of my schedule. But I think that’s how a vacation should be, right? Here’s a quick roll of my Singapore trip.
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.
