2014 Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival at Clark, Pampanga

Good news everyone! The 2014 Philippine Hot Air Balloon is pushing through! The Department of Tourism will now take over the management of this event to be held on Apr. 10 - 13, 2014. Remember the post I wrote about last November, that the Clark Development Corporation announced there is no hot air balloon festival next year because "it is to soon"? Well, please disregard it! 

Due to the overwhelming plea of the public, Department of Tourism Region III Director, Ronnie Tiotuico said that "we don't want to break the tradition / legacy" so this has to happen. The Department of Tourism is actually the pioneer organizer of the ballooning event 18 years ago before it was transferred to another group.  

My 2013 Travel Blogger's Christmas Wishlist

Ever since I got bitten by the travel bug years ago, I was able to control buying unwanted or luxurious things. Call me exaggerated but whenever I check the price tag, I tend to compare the product or the service to a flight ticket or a round trip somewhere. And it works pretty fine though especially now that I am a bootstrapping entrepreneur - making money out of promoting tours and festivals. I can now work anytime and anywhere - at home, in the beachfront or at the coffee shop et cetera!

This location - independent lifestyle though brought so much changes to my needs and wants. Above all my top priorities  nowadays is to always keep connected via mobile and online to my travel business partners and clients anywhere I go.  My world now revolves to joining events and meeting awesome people that are into to travel, blogging, social media, tourism, startups  and entrepreneurship.


A Glimpse of Circus Vargas in Manila

They say if you want to create a
memory that lasts a lifetime, go watch a circus. That's what I am yet to prove to myself because I have never watched such aside from those local performers during fiesta as a kid. 

For a cheap amount of ticket, I got to see simple tricks that entertained me for about half an hour. That's it. 

That is why I am really excited to join the press conference for Circus Vargas, an internationally - known travelling circus group that will perform here in Manila this holiday season.

Batu Caves in Malaysia

Me and Lyn my travel buddy
Do you know that I have been to Malaysia for one day only? Yeah pretty short really because we spent 2 days in Singapore prior and we should have booked our flight back to Manila via Malaysia.  If you want to know how we did a Singapore  - Malaysia trip for 4 days only, please click here.

Anyway lessons are there to teach us what to do next time! So here am I giving you the 1st part out of the 3 reasons to visit Malaysia if you only have a day!

The Batu Caves is a popular tourist attraction which features the world's tallest murti (consecrated statue) of Sri Murugan Swami, a Hindu deity. It is located 13 kilometers north of Kuala Lumpur and believed to be around 400 years old! K. Thamboosamy Pillai, an Indian trader was inspired by the V - shaped entrance of the main cave so he decided to build a temple to Lord Murugan within the caves. 


The Glamour and Sacrifices of a Freelance Life

At the Rockwell Makati Mall. Thanks Eve for the pic 
Whew! I just opened my Facebook 2013 Year of Review biggest moments and it gave me fluffy eyes because most of those are very true indeed, on top is me getting published in a local magazine last March (photo shoot and interview done in December 2012).  If you want to see what I have been through at least those I can share online, you may click here.

Today I am kind of celebrating my third month of being a freelancer and finally had the courage to take my first few steps to a loaction - independent lifestyle. 

This new chapter in my life was once described by a buddy as "nothing more than a career suicide". I replied back saying "I just  killed an old self who is no longer happy to what I am doing over the years". 

The truth is there are a lot out there working in a job that they don't like and they are well - paid but they just can't quit because they fear they will starve to death, won't be able to support their family or they are just too coward to make life changing decisions. I am one of them before.

There’s also Zorro Low Wire who leaps and flips over various obstacles in his way, and other acrobats doing some fun trampoline style tricks.

5 Tips To Maximize Your Adsense Earnings

Can you see those two rectangular ads located on top of my blog title? These are advertisements from Google Adsense. Every legitimate clicks each of them receives has a corresponding dollar amount usually (less than a dollar) and when it reaches a minimum of $100, I will get paid! Yesterday, I just received my first paycheck worth $102.99 or Php 4, 407.56 via Western Union Money Transfer.

Google Adsense is the advertising platform obviously from Google where publishers and advertisers are its main components. Publishers are websites that show advertisements from Adsense. Advertisers are businesses that pay every time their advertisements are clicked through Adsense.  

Grand Marian Procession of 100 Images of the Blessed Virgin

Grand Marian Procession of 100 Images of the Blessed Virgin

Every first Sunday of December, Intramuros celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Concepcion with the  Grand Marian Procession of one hundred images of the  Blessed Virgin, a tradition that started in 1619.

My Mobile Festival 2013 Review


Me at the Mobile Festival 2013
First, I want to thank Wheninmanila.com for the free pass at Mobile Festival 2013 -  the country's first mobile conference - expo. They had a raffle a week ago and I am one of the 10 lucky winners! I prayed to win this because Mobile Festival is not a free event and as a bootstrapping entrepreneur I am trying to live within my means now and below if I need to.  I even blogged about this event though this was not asked from the raffle mechanics! 

What pays my bills, rents and food is this blog. What gives life to this blog is digital marketing. But I did everything in opposite! I veered away from the usual notion of successful blogs:  building communities and connecting to online influencers. I skipped those and did paid search engine marketing. This is the only thing I have invested heavily so far!  

GdayX Philippines: FREE Event from Google Philippine

This travel blog and shop is nothing without Google. I am nothing without Google!  That is why I always see to it that I am always updated with any of Google's events. There is one coming tomorrow (so sorry for the late notice, I have been busy big time!).  I even blogged about 10 Google's Productivity Tools You Can Use In your Business and Women On The Web Summit by Google Business Club Manila.

The Google Business Group Community will have a free event called Gdayx Philippines on Saturday November 23, 2013 8AM - 5PM at the Angelo King Multi-Purpose Center, Xavier School. 

This Google event as  described in their official blog " aims to connect, inform and inspire business owners, entrepreneurs and business students on the latest business technologies."  This is perfect to fellow entrepreneurs especially the bootstrapping one because Google has lots of free and affordable business tools to you. 

Singapore Tour and Itinerary Details



Visiting Singapore is like going to China, India and the world! My two days is certainly not enough to see this country entirely but I can say that they have a very - well developed tourism industry.  
They were able to retain the many identities of their culture and heritage. Their famous architectures and landscapes around the world all speak of their advancement in terms of technology. 

That is why I cannot blame a lot of Filipinos are very much willing to work in Singapore even giving up their citizenship because I can literally see everywhere the countless opportunities!

My Blogapalooza 2013 Review

My Blogapalooza ID
I cannot count how many blogging events in Manila I have joined since I started to blog in 2009. Among them, Blogapalooza 2013 is noteworthy because this is the very first time that in a whole - day activity I was not rushing to go back to work. 

Having a full - time job at the same time running a travel blog and shop has put my health at risk. I had shorter sleeping hours and my productivity in my previous company is suffering because my attention is divided. 

So I followed what my heart says and I quit my job! I am now a full - time blogger and a bootstrapping entrepreneur aiming to follow the path of a location - independent style.  I make sure that I am updated with the trends and events in the Philippine blogosphere more so that I know what is going on and who are the persons that make it going!

Blogapalooza 2013 is one of the biggest blogging events in Manila this year. Four hundred plus bloggers, dozens of brands and a handful of online personalities convened to make this a reality. Again this is not the first time I have been to an event like this so pretty much I have an idea of what are the usual topics that will be tackled like social media ethics, building online influence and working with brands so on and so forth.

The Ruins in Talisay, Bacolod: The Taj Mahal of the Philippines


It's been a year since I backpacked solo to  Bacolod, Iloilo and Guimaras Island. I love the blue - gren colored beach in Guimaras, I and that local pizza store in Iloilo. In Bacolod I still want to drool when I think of that chicked adobo at Chicken Deli's and most of all this old house actually a replica because the original was burned years ago. This is  The Ruins in Negros or also called The Taj Mahal of the Philippines. Why? Because the love story behind the two are almost the same. Both wives of the owners of Taj Mahal and The Ruins died while delivering their babies. Their husbands buit these houses in memory and love for them.

Mobile Festival 2013 in Manila

Our mobile phone is no longer just a tool for communication. It has evolved into a platform that any business should know how to maximize its unprecedented capabilities. Mobile Festival 2013 is a great event I definitely would recommend to fellow entrepreneurs, startup founders,  wannabees etc. They have fantastic line of speakers whom I am sure that no one will go home without picking at least one idea that can inspire them to expand their brands and start something out via mobile technology. I myself is very curious about what is the current local mobile industry and how I can use it for the benefit of my travel blog and shop.

6 Tips To Start As A Bootstrapping Entrepreneur

There are a lot of reasons why I hurried back to Manila after staying for more than a month in Bicol my hometown: I brought my mom for a free trip to ilocos courtesy of one of my travel partners for a job well done by yours truly (I have another free trip coming in Sagada), I have to get my backpay from my previous company and my application abroad is still hanging in the air. 

Most of all, I felt strange and so detached to the place where I was born and raised. Maybe because for the past ten years of my life I have learned to live far and independent from my family. I want to stay longer with them but I feel like I left my heart somewhere and I need to find it.  If not I will end up regretting I never bothered to find what makes me happy.
