Sagada Day 1(PM): Lumiang and Sumaguing Caves + Tips

Our first day in Sagada started with an easy hike in Echo Valley, where the Hanging Coffins can also be found. You can read more about it in my previous post as seen here: http://lushangel.com/2017/10/22/sagada-day-1-echo-valley-hanging-coffins/. It was an easy and quick hike that by lunch time, we were back in the town proper. We had time to eat lunch, nap and lounge before braving our next activity. To be honest, I did not expect our next one to be the complete opposite. Up next: Spelunking. A Sagada trip won’t be complete without exploring caves. You can opt to go to...

Sagada Day 1: Echo Valley + Hanging Coffins

I never really understood Sagada’s charm until I set foot in this location. At first, it would seem that it is just one of those small towns in Mountain Province, but Sagada has that air of mystery that easily captivates its visitors. Ysagadas, the people from Sagada, were able to preserve the beauty of their culture and the place. You will see (and somehow experience) what I’m talking about in my series of Sagada posts. My friends and I decided to drive from Manila to Sagada since we wanted to drop by Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan and have...

Swimwear Idea For The Petite

Because I’m terribly missing the beach, here’s a #throwback of my beach trip last summer and a swimsuit idea for the petite… Fashion magazines used to suggest triangle bikinis for petite girls, especially those who are not so well-endowed. When more swimsuit designs became available in the market, ruffled tops or tops with busy designs became the popular choice. But what if you are not so comfortable wearing triangle bikinis and ruffles are not your thing? My choice… It is still a two-piece bikini, but I’m loving the comfort of the high neckline. No need to be too conscious!...

Unveiling of Okada Manila

Okada Manila has recently been the talk of the town. Aside from being dubbed as Manila’s biggest and most lavish integrated resort development, they just revealed the world’s largest multicolor dancing water fountain. It’s actually set to join the ranks of the country’s top tourism landmarks. Okada Manila The Fountain The dancing water fountain is situated at the heart of the 44-hectare resort. The Fountain dances in sync with music and multicolor lights, enhanced with a highly immersive projection mapping onto the glass surface of the 800m-long crystal corridor, creating a whimsical augmented and interactive reality. Just imagine the combination of digital technology, live acrobatic and circus performances and the grand water fountain display: WOW! I don’t think I have seen anything like it here in Manila! You can watch The Fountain free of charge. See schedule below: Fri to Sat, every half hour (6:00 PM to 12:00 AM) Sun to Thu, every half hour (6:00 PM to 10:00 PM) Okada Manila: The Launch Okada Manila made sure to have a memorable launch by bringing in multi-awarded singer, songwriter and record producer Robin Thicke who joined the grand celebration and performed his hit songs on The Fountain stage. Aside from Robin, Asia’s Got Talent finalist and Filipino classical singer Gerphil Flores along with the 40-piece Manila Philharmonic Orchestra wowed the audience with their extraordinary and world-class performances. And to top it...

Chilling at BenCab Baguio

About a month ago, I had a chance to visit BenCab Museum. If you haven’t seen my previous post about it, you can check it out HERE. I frequent Baguio for the fun long drive and the cool weather but this was my first time in BenCab Museum. I always read good things about it, but for some reason, I tend to forget when I’m in Baguio. This time though I was searching for a place to eat, which led us here. Finally! All these photos were taken at the garden area of BenCab Museum. Would you believe there’s also a mini trail there to cross the other mountain? Don’t worry, it’s really mini that anybody can do it! It’s just about 15-minute (or less) leisure walk. You’ll need a guide to show you around though for safety purposes. You need to pay a minimal amount (around PHP 100, I think… sorry, I can’t really remember). When we were there though, there were quite a number of guests so we had to wait for a guide to be available. So while waiting, here I am lounging in their restaurant busy playing… Haha! Caught on cam! By the way, for all the gamers out there, good news! Have you heard that Youtube Gaming is finally here in the Philippines?! It has Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto, League of Legends, Call of...
