As I was rummaging through my hard drive for old photos and videos, I suddenly stumbled upon an album full of photos of my friend and I staying at a bunch of hotels. That was a few years ago when I was still in my third year of college. While other kids partied or drank the night away, we were hotel-hopping around town and traveling on a budget together even though we weren’t attending the same school. I used to work part-time as a tutor just so I could afford to travel. Talking about it now, I really missed doing all that!
Anyway, it’s a waste to leave those memories hidden away in a storage device, so I decided to put them into good use and share to other people my wonderful experiences. I’m going to start off with our very first hotel, or in this case a serviced apartment, Ascott Makati.
I can’t deny it. Steak is definitely one of my favorite food! I’ve tried a lot of different steak restaurants since I was a kid. Some of them were House of Minis, Fire Lake Grill, Steak Town, and Santis Delicatessen. I tried Melo’s Steaks for the first time a few days ago. I know it’s a widely-known steak house for years already, but I never really had the chance to eat there. Now that I have, I can honestly say that I love it to bits!
Travel Date: August 12, 2015 – August 16, 2015
Destination: Boracay Island, Aklan, Philippines
The first day of our Boracay travel gave me goosebumps all over, not because of fear of heights or anything like that; but with full excitement, because this trip was OUR first trip. I was so excited I couldn’t sleep the night before as I keep on imagining us walking along the sandy beach hand-in-hand. Alright, I guess that was a bit too cheesy. Don’t fret, it did happen but it wasn’t as romantic as I thought it would be. (Haha!) I did learn a lesson from this, though. The first thing you should remember when going on a trip is to not expect too much to avoid disappointments, particularly with the hotel or with the tour if you are joining group tours.
