How I Managed to Save 100K in Less Than a Year

Saving 100K has been one of my life goals for this year. I’ve always been good at saving up money – then spending it in one go… This year, I decided to forgo the spending part. I’m going to share with you some of the things I did that helped me save 100K.

Photo Diary: Snorkeling in Puerto Galera

Last Independence Day weekend, I was able to try snorkeling for the very first time at Puerto Galera. It was both fun and scary at the same time.

Life Lately #5 + On a Vocal Rest

Well, end of May went downhill for me. I’ve been feeling sick since Monday and I thought it was the usual tonsillitis + fever combo. I got checked out by my trusty doctor yesterday and I found out that my vocal chords are really, really sore. My doctor ordered me to rest at home and not speak for at least two days.

Bangui Windmills: The Giants of Ilocos Norte

What Ilocos trip would it be if we didn’t visit the famous Bangui Windmills? I think it’s considered a mortal sin since the iconic windmills are included in every advertisement about the province!
