Us, humans, have abused nature in our way to creating a modern civilization. The number of forests we cleared, mountains we flattened, and animals we slaughtered can no longer be fathomed. That is why, it is truly inspiring to find people who devote their selves in protecting nature. I have been given the privilege of meeting one of those kind hearts. This inspiring soul is an 80-year-old volunteer Environmentalist. We all call him Ichida-san; Mt. Nokoyama’s Guardian.Continue reading “#LearnFromTheWorld: The 80-year-old Volunteer Guardian of Mt.

This blog is 1 year overdue now, but I am writing it anyways.
When I went home to the Philippines last December 2018, my man and I decided to spend a weekend in the paradise that is Bantayan Island. By far, it is the best and most relaxing vacation we’ve ever had. Why? Read more to find out!
Nabana no Sato was in the itinerary of the pre-booked tour that I booked for that Saturday. Unfortunately, I missed the tour despite being there 30 minutes before the meetup time. Yes, I missed my packaged tour, but I figured that I shouldn’t let it hinder me from visiting this beautiful place. After spending a whole day there, I’ve never been so grateful of missing a pre-booked tour in my whole life.
Come and see the magic that is Nabana no Sato!
Cherry Blossoms have always been equal to Spring. In the best of our knowledge, there’s just no way Cherry Blossoms can be seen in Autumn. Well after meeting this place, I guess, we have all been proven wrong. We now know the only place in Japan that allows us to witness both Autumn Leaves and Cherry Blossoms at the same time!
Come visit this magical place with me. Come meet Obara.
My trip back home to the Philippines last August 2019 has brought me to a lot of places because I decided to travel Multi-city. On my way to the Philippines, I dropped by Taiwan for 2 days and 1 night. On my way back to Japan, I was able to visit Singapore for 1 day and 1 night, then Bangkok, Thailand for just 7 hours. This trip to Thailand was actually not intended, but since I couldn’t anymore find a cheap flight to Japan with only Singapore as a Layover point, I just went for it.
This travel guide is for people who are wondering what can be done in Bangkok if ever they happen to layover to this beautiful city for just a couple of hours. If you happen to be interested with that, read ahead!Continue reading “A 7-hour Layover Travel Guide for Bangkok, Thailand”
I love travelling multi-city. Last August 2019, on my way home to the Philippines from Japan, I dropped by Taiwan for 2 days and 1 night. This time on my way back to Japan, I decided to drop by real quick to Singapore and Thailand.
Singapore is also one of those countries that I consider for quickstops. Main reason is that, it is a small city-state, thus it only takes a short time to tour around it. I took the liberty of dropping by Singapore for 1 day and 1 night. What to do in Singapore for that short period of time? Well, read ahead!
Taiwan is a tourist haven, and for good reasons. This country is rich in culture, stunning views, and is inexpensive to visit. It has always been on top of my travel list.

This article, on the other hand, is a travel guide on what can be done if you happen to layover in this beautiful country for 2 days and 1 night. If you happen to be into that, read ahead!Continue reading “2D1N Layover Travel Guide for the Land of Milk Tea, Taiwan!”
