The Avatar Dream became Real

STORY CIRCA 2010.

I remember seeing a documentary in TV about where the movie Avatar was inspired and was just amazed. The place was just magical and unreal. I pretty much thought that going to that place would be impossible and hard. I gave up on that dream the minute i felt like there’s no way i’ll be able to go there.

Years passed and my mom asked me to make a flyer about some tours that they’re gonna feature and lo and behold there’s actually an Avatar tour going to the location and the whole thing! It’s actually in China and very accessible. Then after another maybe 3 or 4 years. I was working for my mom’s travel agency and we got invited to the place and mom decided that I should go!

Drip Cafe

I was always in a hunt for a new coffee shop since the Starbucks near my place seems to be always full. Then I heard about drip cafe from an instagram post of a friend of mine. So I quickly had a look if it’s near me and yes! it’s just a 5 min drive from my house. So I checked if this could be my new work place whenever Starbucks is full.

My First impression about the place was that it has a productive atmosphere. I like how they designed the place. It’s different from your usual coffee shop with the wooden cozy interior. The wall is white and it’s other main color is teal which is pretty cute. It also has big teal couches which are comfy and good study tables to concentrate in. It’s also not as noisy as starbucks and pretty chill where you can keep your space all to yourself. Also there’s free wifi! Continue reading “Drip Cafe”

Budget Boholing in a Day!

Yes, I know. I didn’t really get the 3k budget I want in Bohol, the pasalubong and van got me spending more that I wanted. So I’m gonna warn you now this budget trip that I’m writing about is more for the ones in a group. Because renting a van when you’re just alone is not really cheap. You can commute via bus, tricycles and habal habal.  Commuting in Bohol is pretty cheap: Tricycles range from Php20.00 – Php 40.00, Busses cost around Php 40.00 while habal habal varies from Php 30.00 – Php 40.00 Continue reading “Budget Boholing in a Day!”
