First of Summer: Coron

The last time I was in Coron was in 2008, over ten years ago. That time, Coron was not that popular. We arrived via a ship that took us first to Bohol then Boracay, with Coron as the culminating destination. My fond memories of that trip included a beautiful set of islands, untouched and absolutely breathtaking.

Coming back was something I had looked forward to because one, I love the beach and couldn’t wait to be reunited with the sea. And two, Coron was one of the locations at the top of my list of favorite beaches. Pocholo and I had been eyeing it for some time but had never been able to actually book a trip. Luckily, the Perreras family decided that this year’s annual trip would be in Coron–finally, it happened!

Our Weekend Escape to Samal Island

Spontaneous trips are always a good idea. Our weekend trip to Samal Island in Davao was planned just a week before we left, and it was just what we needed after a hectic start in 2018–we were both very busy last January and February. And even better, we found two other friends, Nikka and Ken, to come along.

Our Bohol Getaway in a Nutshell

Last July, the Perreras family decided to visit Bohol for a relaxing summer getaway. I had been to Bohol before, but it was only a quick overnight stopover so I wasn’t able to see much. Luckily, during this second trip, the family made sure to see what the city had to offer, and allot enough time to enjoy the beach.

Thank You, Amanpulo

We, Filipinos, are so lucky. We live within reach of the most beautiful beaches. Case in point: Amanpulo. If you’re following me on Instagram, you would have already gotten a glimpse of this breathtaking island. Was it such a tease? Well, allow me to share with you more about Amanpulo now.

Back in Boracay

thumb_IMG_20170612_095957_1024

While most budding teens experience the ultimate Boracay graduation trip, I, on the other hand, was only able to visit the island with family. It’s no secret that I have strict parents. So every time friends and officemates would invite me to a trip in Boracay, I would decline straight out. I think the wild stories about the night life really made my parents (maybe more of my dad), worry every time they’d toy about the idea of letting their only daughter go to Boracay without their supervision.

3 Easy Ab Workouts for BeginnersΒ 

I started doing ab workouts at a very young age. I was probably 8 years old when we started doing leg races at the end of ballet class. And as I moved to higher levels, our ab muscle exercises increased in variation and difficulty. By the latter part of my dancing years, we were doing some pilates ab workouts already.Β
