For leisure-goers and adrenaline junkies, one place I recommend visiting is Alviera’s Sandbox in Porac, Pampanga. While the place offers thrilling and heart pounding activities, it may also bring you a very dizzying headache. Here are 3 reasons to make you love and hate Sandbox at the same time.
Unlike traditional museums where you are expected to just look around and appreciate art pieces quietly, visitors of Art in Island are encouraged to interact and pose with all of its 3D paintings. Thus, anyone visiting the museum can be part of the Art. Sounds great, right?
If there's a place near the metropolis that is comparable to Baguio and Tagaytay's mountainous backdrop and frigid weather, it would definitely be Rizal's underrated municipality of Tanay.
Since our supposed Surigao trip was cancelled due to a series of unfortunate events, we've decided to just spend a weekend to one of the newest camps in Tanay, the Ten Cents to Heaven Leisure Camp and Resort.
It was a sunny Sunday morning and I seemed a little groggy when we were on our way up to Tanay, Rizal. We're off to Ten Cents to Heaven (not literally heaven). But the way I was feeling --subconsciously awake but blank on the inside, like a zombie-- you might have me mistaken for someone who's ready to go to heaven any moment that time (that's a little exaggeration). But honestly, I wasn't feeling very well that day. I was exhausted, I just came from a long hour bus ride from the North and I wasn't really ready for another daunting long drive.

Vigan, well known for its preserved cobblestone streets and blended Philippine/Spanish architecture has been selected as one of the 21 finalists in the search for the New7Wonders Cities of the World.
Let's help make it as one of the new New7Wonders Cities by casting our votes.
Without a doubt, Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most enjoyable movies Marvel has ever made. It is brimming with underrated but adorable characters. And my favorite would definitely be Groot! The innate kindness and sensitivity of this human-tree really captured my heart. Plus, the dancing baby Groot was a truly delightful thing to see.
How can anyone resist the adorable dancing Groot?
I am drawn to dining places with unique themes and interiors. Good thing there are lots of such places in Marikina. One of which is the '80s themed Some Kind of Wonderful Cafe.
You read it right, 'Some Kind of Wonderful' is the name of the restaurant, more popularly known as SKOW in Marikina.
It was a Saturday afternoon when we drove all the way to Marikina Heights for a late lunch. Together with my best buddy, we've decided to try out some of the food offered in this hole-in-the-wall place in Marikina.
As we entered a seemingly residential area of the becoming popular streets of Lilac and Rainbow in SSS Village, Marikina, we've finally chanced upon the quaint diner --- painted in pastel colors, and adorned with vintage decors.
Perhaps it's the invigorating scenery or the frigid mountain breeze that makes the usual food seem to taste delicious in the streets of Baguio.
Aside from the popular pasalubongs like ube jam, peanut brittle and lengua de gato, a trip to Baguio would not be complete without trying out some of its delectable and eye candy food items.
I've listed 3 quirky food finds I've tried during our recent trip to Baguio.
1. Sundot Kulangot
Its dirty sounding name might turn you off but it is actually a "must-eat" in Baguio. Sundot kulangot is the small version of kalamay, a sticky sweet delicacy made from glutinous rice. The sticky kalamay is covered with miniature coconut shells - which are so small that you need to use your finger to prick or dig the kalamay out, thus the name sundot kulangot.
