Caira ~ On The Road to Womanhood
(WARNING: PHOTO-HEAVY POST)
It’s just the second month of the year yet I just feel accomplished (big word. HAHA) and felt like I deserve a little break. But seriously, it’s just a mini getaway/staycation at some hotel with the creative team plus the senior accounts manager plus my partner-in-crime/other-half/bully/andalltheotheradjectives haha kidding Lon (if you read this).
After a long and tiring event shoot the previous day, got rewarded by an awesome view.
But a pricey lunch? HAHA
Roamed around after checking-in.
Ibiza is just a perfect chill place just right before sundown.
The next morning’s sunrise. (Ok fine I woke up late that I failed to capture a beautiful one.)
Isn’t it just perfect? Sitting there with a pretty view.
Enjoying the clear blue waters (with huge fishes. HAHA )
Yes, I won’t drown!
Ok back to the beach.
And just simply bask under the heat of the sun as if you used a sunblock! Result? You’re suffering from sun burnt skin for a week but you get to enjoy every moment of the staycation. As they say, sunburn fades but memories don’t. Ok shiz I’m too lazy to write something and this is just weeks late. Be back pretty soon, beach! :))

Two nights before February 1, I received a notice from my workmate that we’re asked to attend a creative convention in Manila. That same weekend we we’re planning to have a staycation at a resort hotel nearby. That same weekend, my schedule were all plot and full. A single decision changed everything.
February 1, 2014 ~ Saturday. My first time to go MNL alone (my workmates went a day ahead of me ‘coz I have a scheduled photoshoot in which will blog about soon). It was kind of a memorable one. My scheduled trip was at 5:05 am and as you can see below, it’s already 5:36 am and I’m still at the airport.
Ok fine. My alarm failed, well not really. Three alarms but my phone was on silent mode. I woke up at 4am. I arrived at the airport just minutes before they closed the check-in. And my world crashed. T.T I asked if they could still allow me to board the plane ‘coz there was no last call yet but to no avail. I had to buy another ticket.
Next flight was at 5:55 so I just waited.
Touchdown MNL. From the airport, took a shuttle to Pasay, walked walked walked and took a jeepney to SMX. Thanks to my navigator/brother-in-law I saved a bit from taxi fare. HAHA
Meanline in MOA, while waiting, found KK for breakfast I handed the cashier my KK rewards card but oops, KK Rewards Card is only applicable in Cebu branches. LOL
9:00 am and it’s Graphika Manila 2014 time. With my colleagues.
I heard about this convention years ago. It’s the biggest creative convention held in MNL every year so was a bit giddy for this. It’s a whole day event where guest speakers came from different countries who share their tips and tricks and experience in the industry and of course motivate and inspire artists more.
But there’s no free lunch of even snacks so we headed to Racks.
Racks reminds me of my sister, baby-back ribs is her favorite and according to her Racks has the most delectable baby-back ribs. well it is yummy specially their original bbq sauce ;)
Oh and I forgot to mention, Marlon went to MNL hours after me just ‘coz, so we met in the evening with his cousin in MOA. I wanted to try ice skating but no one wants to go with me. Boo.
Went to The Fort for dinner. Roamed around, found a place to eat tooooooo far from where we parked the car.
He wasn’t over the kebab we had the week before so we went for something Persian at the Persia Grill. From there, I died. I was too tired and sleepy we can’t even go to Mercatto, I slept at the car on our way home.
Fully re-charged we had something random for the next day. Well I was supposed to meet a good old of friend of mine but we weren’t able too :( ‘till next time Regine.
From Greenbelt to a little road trip to Tagaytay.
It wasn’t that far. Lesser traffic jam.
Almost there, but the sun is setting.
It was a long weekend, people from the city went to neighboring towns to enjoy the weekend away from the busy life. Thus the traffic congested at the Tagaytay-Batangas road and we we’re stuck there. This is the only decent photo I got of the Taal Volcano. I know I suck. HAHA Plus I bought the wrong lens with me and we didn’t have a good view of it. At least I get to visit the place. :p
Sunset at Tagaytay.
The whole MNL weekend was a quick unplanned random trip. But it was a new adventure for me :)
To more adventures! <3
A little road trip to the boondocks last 01.25.14.
'coz it was a
fine nice cold Saturday morning
to enjoy the view from the top
and to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life
and just relax
and of course one shouldn’t miss the yellow corn!
Then we went farther and farther and found a nice spot.
Adventure Cafe, Balamban.
Bukid day with them, loves! Oh and our lunch was like a fiesta :p
