GETTING THERE

If you are coming from Manila, via public transport –

  • Ride a bus from Buendia Terminal (DLTBCO/JAM) bound to Calatagan/Nasugbu/Lemery
  • Tell the driver to drop you off at Olivarez Rotunda. and from the rotunda,
  • Ride a tricycle or walk towards Tagaytay-Calamba Road.
  • Landmark to find is Verazza Hotel and Restaurant (drop off here)
  • Dreamland was near Cityland Condo, beside Verazza Hotel

It was really fun to explore the gastronomic side of Tagaytay with my boyfriend, among other places. This just goes to show that somehow, the culture of good food is very much vibrant in this side of town. What a winsome and attractive interiors they have!

Pay for only PHP100.00 for entrance fee and it’s consumable during your stay by purchasing of their handcrafts and foods.

The walls are written with lovely designs of inspirational quotes, drawings, pastel colors, more dream catchers, all in a sort of organized kind of way. They have these double deck beds that artistically well designed as your table. Very creative right?

It was an arts and crafts heaven indeed!

Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe is also a no WiFi zone. If you would notice on their entrance: “Disconnect to connect!” Good side of it, you can spend time more with your friends and families without any disturb of social media.

Contrary to some of the reviews we’ve read for the food quality, we enjoyed our orders and they tasted good. Below were our orders for your reference:

SHOP

In their shop, there are dream catchers everywhere in every size and color of it! There are available dream catcher kits like stationery, notebooks, adult coloring books, keychains, pens, temporary tattoos, yarns, bags, rings, everything artsy and kitschy you could imagine and a lot of more! (Note: It’s kinda pricey!) but every purchase can help to send children for school.

My fave spot!

MY PERSONAL OVERALL REVIEW:

This place is really perfect for a large group of friends, families and of course for couple as well. It was too instagrammable worthy so you can take pictures as many as you can.
The customer service was not that good! They are too unfriendly, lousy and awful. They are this kind of “masungit”and not that approachable, they didn’t gave you that kind smile at all! They serve your food one at a time and you need to follow up all the time your other orders!
Their Food was good but nothing special about it and kinda costly.

This is my personal experience and review! So there you have it friends! There’s nothing wrong about being honest. I just hope that they can improve more of their service in the future to avoid dismay and dissatisfaction of customer.

Another fun-filling day again as we experienced a heaven place filled with doting cats. In my previous post, we visited Velvet Friends and Cafe and we just came up to an idea that we will pay a visit to every cat cafes in Metro! The time that we came to this place this is just a cat cafe but it’s now called Bengal Brew with Wolf and Bear. So this post is only all about cats. 🙂 It’s actually like Velvet Friends and Cafe that has been divided into two sections.

I was amazed how many Bengals are there and most of them are that friendly and easy to cuddle with. If you are just around Farmers or Gateway, then I suggest to drop by for some mental repose. This pet paradise is at a corner of Manhattan Park view in Cubao, Quezon city.

Finding quiet, peaceful and a place for some relaxation? We’ve been searching where we can spend our 1 day off, then lucky us, we found this place. There’s a lot of day tours/activities offered thru Facebook and also via Travel agency, but no need to go far to find serene. This place has a simple yet unique accommodation, and exciting outdoor activities.

But no need to fly to Aklan for Kawa Hot Bath, this place has this fun activity that will surely give you refreshment with the overlooking of Taal. Exciting right?

Best of San Juan | La Union

La Union is known for the beach town of San Juan, the surfing capital on this side of North Luzon.

It’s summer time and for sure you have your plans for your summer vacation. Maybe La Union is in your list. Well, we all know that La Union is known for beautiful beach and great place for surfing. I’ve been planning to write this short blog from my previous visit there and I tell you, the place is just simply awesome, there’s a lot of places you can visit aside from the beach.

If you are a first timer or having this plan to visit La Union, then you are in the right blog site. Let me share you my experiences and travel tips! Happy reading!


BEST TIME TO VISIT LA UNION

Many tourists main reason why to go to La Union is surfing.

JUL-OCT: The South Swell is caused by the southwest monsoon, known locally as habagat. It produces ideal waves though this is the height of rainy season. This is a good time to go if you don’t mind surfing in bad weather.

NOV-MAR: The North Swell is caused by northeast trade winds known locally as amihan. This is the best time to go surfing because the waves are ideal and there’s less chance of rain.

The North and South Swell seasons are the best waves for long time surfer but if you’re a beginner, think twice before you go.

HOW TO GET TO LA UNION FROM MANILA

You can get to San Juan by driving or taking the bus.

BY BUS: There are several bus companies that can take you to La Union from Manila. There are various companies operating the bus from Manila to La Union, with the most popular being Partas and Dominion (both departing from Cubao and Pasay Terminal) and Viron (Cubao and Sampaloc terminals). Fare range from 400 – 800 depends on bus type.

WHERE TO STAY IN LA UNION

Most tourists traveling to La Union pick either San Juan or San Fernando as a base. Well, both of it is beautiful but I will go for San Juan. I stayed with my friend’s house. We chose San Juan La Union since most of the budget and our target places are concentrated here. Not to mention its proximity to the surfing beach – Urbiztondo Beach. But San Fernando also offers good options for travelers who are willing to spend more for comfort.

There’s a lot of affordable hotels and and accommodation near to beach. This place isn’t that big so there aren’t as many resorts compared to more established destinations. But if you are budget traveler, then good thing there is already AIRBNB to book your stay.

Since I stayed with my friend’s house, here are my suggestions if you opt to travel in La Union for overnight.

Flotsam & Jetsam Artist Hostel
Flotsam & Jetsam is one of the best places to stay in San Juan. I’ve been hearing about this place even before I had any real desire of visiting San Juan. This is not a hostel but also a perfect place for beach party.


THINGS TO DO IN LA UNION

1.San Juan Beach

This is one of the best place to go for surfing, bonding, watch sunset and good thing it has nearby food stores and accommodations like Flotsam and Jetsam, the famous Makai bowls and lot more!


For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 🌅❤ Psalm 57:10

2. Poro Point Lighthouse

Time for escape and travel to La Union, step out of the shadow of its more popular neighbors. Its day in the sun has come, and the beacon that shines on it arising from Poro Point, whilom American base on a peninsula within San Fernando City. The Poro Point Lighthouse serves as a favorite spot and this is great place for jogs, sprints, cycling, working out, or an early morning walk. The Poro Point Lighthouse is just 10-15 minutes away from San Fernando’s central district, and you can get there either by car or by riding public transportation. No entrance fee needed, this is open for public, tourists or locals may freely walk around and take in the scenery.

3. Flotsam & Jetsam

Looking for a party in San Juan? Then this place is for you. Right after beach surfing or long drive from tours, have some drinks and get the party started. Flotsam & Jetsam is a trendy hostel with a restaurant and full bar. This place has fun and lively environment so most people visiting in San Juan will be here getting drinks every night, of course this is also near to the beach just 1-3 minutes walk!

4. Halo Halo de Iloko – Zandueta Street

La Union has so much more to offer also for foods! Here’s one that you should put on your list! Halo Halo de Iloko, home of Ilokano cuisine in San Fernando City, offers not only the dessert but also Ilokano blend dishes. This place is known for their HALO HALO, I’ve tasted all kinds of halo halo but here, it’s different! There’s something in their ingredients that you can’t describe! It’s delicioso! Perfecto! Pasalubong, goodies are available here as well.

How to go — from Urbiztondo, ride a jeep to San Fernando (PHP11 fare per person). Drop off at the city center and ride a tricycle to Halo Halo de Iloko. Locals are very familiar with it.

5. Ma Cho Temple

No need to go to China. Ma Cho temple can be found in La Union! The Ma-Cho, Mazu or Ma Cho Temple is a Taoist temple to the Chinese sea-goddess Mazu located on Quezon Avenue in Barangay II, San Fernando, La Union in the Philippines.

Things to take note and observe
1. Ma-Cho temple is open every day between 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
2. There is no entrance fee. Hence, you could explore the temple for free.
3. There are holding areas found around the temple. Dating is prohibited in these areas.

How to go — From Halo Halo de Iloko, ride a tricycle to Ma-Cho Temple (PHP8 fare per person).

Singapore Travel Guide

Singapore is the most developed and advanced country in Asia. It is also one of the most powerful country in the world. Singapore at first glance may describe as a luxury place to live! It has so much to offer in terms of attractions. It’s incessantly progressing and growing with people who are passionate and dedicated in creating new possibilities. As you may know, it is the world’s most expensive cities to live in, it’s the MOST expensive, topping the Economist Intelligence Unit’s report for the fifth year in a row.

I might say that accommodations, transportation and foods are indeed pricier than other Southeast Asian destinations. Their public transportation is so efficient that you can easily get around by train or bus. No doubt, if you try their train, it’s remarkably awesome, it’s right under the ground and if you’ll use escalator it’s more like 3 – 4 times deeper. Public bus? Ah! It’s really different in the bus of my country! How I wish it’s the same in SG. There’s specific pick up and drop off point and specific time as well! How nice, right? It is not like you’ll get along with so many other passengers inside the bus. NO! There’s also a stop button wherein driver will know if there’s passenger who would like to drop off. Cool! Also, you can enjoy a delicious meal for as little as SGD3-5 from one of many hawker centers throughout the city. You must try it!

In other words, don’t let its high standard of living keep you from going here because mind you, Singapore has so much to offer with its various cuisine, world-class and unique attractions, numerous shopping, and lively nightlife. No matter how big or small your budget is, visit Singapore and you’ll soon see and know why it is one of the top tourist destinations in Asia.

We pay only for day tour as we planned to go as well in Pinto Art Museum afterwards.

Seize the breathtaking view of the bustling city of Hong Kong be it on a vast daylight or night sky.

Sky100 is one of the recommended spot to visit especially if you want to view Hong Kong in 360 degrees. From there you will simply be astonished by the resplendent sight which will make you realize what beauty civilization can offer- that civilization in itself can be a form of art.

I felt agitated and exhilarated at the same time when we took their elevator, it moves rapidly, feels like you are being taken away by the wind upwards! When it comes to see a good view from a skyscraper observation deck you need a combination of height and position in the city to make it a worthwhile attraction.
