Less than half-day Tagaytay Trip

Yes, we were in Tagaytay for less than half of a day.

Last Sunday (January 19), +Jomar, Mama +Chelle, and I gave a tour to +Amit Chopra to the cold and breezy Tagaytay City.

We left Manila around 6:30am and have found ourselves on top of the People's Park in the Sky 2 hours later. It was a cloudy day and strong cold winds greeted us on top of the park. The view of Laguna and of course, the Taal Volcano is gloomy.

After a few minutes taking photos, we decided to ask people holding "Boat for Rent" sign, how much it would cost much to our surprise the Manong said it costs Php 4,500.00 (that's really expensive, even for the big boat!). Amit said that he does not want to get seasick because the strong wind might rock the boat on its way to Taal volcano even if he was really looking forward to a donkey ride. So instead of riding the boat, we decided to enjoy warm cookies in Starbucks. After taking photos of the view, we decided it's time to go back to Manila since the sky is gloomy and it might rain. We stopped by Rowena's to buy buko tart and silvanas.

Dark Clouds at 10 AM in the morning!

During the drive back to Manila, I was sleeping most of the way and woke up when we arrived at the front door of the National Museum.

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
