Traveling, as merry and exciting as it sounds, can also be quite stressful. The act of traveling itself, I mean. As enjoyable as it may be to explore new sights and discover new things, the first thing one needs to deal with is “getting there”. And though I have always been one who believes that half the fun of a trip is the travel itself, it becomes all the more delightful when the voyage is worry-free. That’s why it’s always a joy to discover new travel options that combine affordability and pleasant service.
During my recent trip to Batanes, I had the opportunity to experience flying via SkyJet Airlines.
Stress, among other things, can most certainly do a lot of damage to your skin. In fact, one of the most evident manifestations of stress and lack of rest can easily be seen on the face.
Given my constant traveling in and out of the country, plus the demands of my work and lifestyle, stress and lack of ample rest can never be avoided. And since having my photo taken every so often is part of the line of work that I’m in, I cannot allow myself to look tired and haggard. So, I try to find other ways to counter the negative effects of this kind of lifestyle.
Some people in the same industry (showbusiness/entertainment) look to moisturizers, lotions, and yes… even surgery. I, on the other hand, have found a means to counter these effects and improve my well-being in a much simpler and incredibly easier way.

Everytime Christmas comes around, it’s always great to find new ways to share and celebrate the festive season with friends and family.
The Philippines is known to celebrate Christmas the longest compared to other countries in the world. And during this long period, we Filipinos love to get together, eat out, and have a merry time with people we love.
My family similarly loves to find time to be together and bond over good food and fun activities especially during the Yuletide season. So, finding new attractions and great places to dine is always something we take seriously.
A couple of days ago, one of our many simple family getaways to celebrate Christmas time was by heading over to SM by the BAY to check out the various cool establishments and attractions.
We decided to visit SM by the BAY because, for one, the 1.5 Km entertainment complex boasts of having one of the best views of the Manila Bay sunset. Apart from that, the place also offers a vast range of dining and buffet options and a unique park experience that are perfect for friends and family.
With the complex operating from 6AM-2AM and restaurants that are open from 11AM-1AM, SM by the BAY offers non-stop fun all year round. The place is open every day – especially during Christmas and New Year.
I particularly loved how one can easily feel the holiday spirit at SM by the BAY because the place is adorned with Christmas decorations, a 75ft Christmas Tree and festive lights installed along the entire stretch of the complex. In addition, music and fireworks can be enjoyed on Fridays and Saturdays at 7PM. Whee!
Also, SM by the BAY offers a wide variety of mouth-watering food as well as fun and exhilarating amusement rides like the iconic MOA Eye.
Here in the Philippines, festivals are times of great joy and celebration wherein our diverse culture and traditions are best showcased.
Some of these festivals celebrate historical occurrences while majority highlight the strong Catholic influence in our country as well as religious commemorations.
While all these celebrations are fine and well, there are a few whose aim is to bring more attention and awareness to certain causes and advocacies. One such occasion is the “Pawikan Festival” in the town of Morong, located in the province of Bataan.
I have to say Philippines AirAsia has one of the best (if not THE BEST) in-flight meals anywhere around. I say this with no bias or partiality whatsoever. Anyone who has tried them would most certainly agree.
Philippines AirAsia’s new in-flight meals are well portioned, flavorful, and very satisfying. Apart from that, they have a good selection of meals to choose from. In fact, they’re one of the things I truly look forward to whenever I have a flight.
And Philippines AirAsia knows, just like any master of his/her respective game, that no matter how good you are, there is always room to get better.
True enough… in their desire to become better in order to please every customer that walks into their aircraft, the world’s best low-cost airline has upgraded and come up with a new selection of in-flight meals called, “Santan”. And boy, was I excited the moment I first caught wind of it.
It is worth noting that replacing “AirAsia Café” to “Santan” is part of Philippines AirAsia’s latest offering to enhance customer experience while flying.
For those who aren’t aware, Santan is an essential ingredient in Malay cooking which refers to the liquid obtained from pressing shredded coconut meat that is used in almost all ASEAN dishes. Philippines AirAsia allows passengers to enjoy several fares that pay homage to the incredibly rich ASEAN flavours. Some of these dishes are Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rice, Beef Caldereta and Adobo which are available on certain flights. In addition, our Muslim friends will be glad to know that Philippines AirAsia hotmeals and sandwiches are Halal Certified.
I was able to try a good number of these Santan selections during a tasting session of Philippines AirAsia’s new in-flight meals while traveling to Hong Kong very recently. It goes without saying that I was truly impressed with their newest offerings.

Everybody knows Mario’s. It is one of the very few restaurants in the country that have stood the test of time and perhaps one of the more prominent establishments frequented by people, young and old, who know good food. I was recently at the Tomas Morato branch of Mario’s and had the opportunity to enjoy their […]
Last night, during the “Thor: The Dark World” movie screening by Nuffnang & Globe Telecom at Resorts World, my family and I went to Stackers Burger Cafe to have a quick dinner. Naturally, since they had a photo-heavy menu, our orders were based on the images of the food shown on it. Friends and family […]
