Staycation Twinlakes Tagaytay

Start to think about Tagaytay just before lock down again and its can happen anytime. So if you have chance to do then do so.

Its sunshine day and we just book few days in advance after get information from the hotel that’s we need to do rapid antigen test before check in. So we avail the service with the hotel by the area of parking where you can do Rapid Antigen Test, Once negative result only you allow to enter lobby area which is safe for your stay.

The hotel its self has drastic feeling, Nice building, peaceful ambion. All room with Balcony. Cold Aircon and Many TV Channel where you can enjoy.

Hotel restaurant a bit pricey and you allow to take out your food from Twin lakes Plaza Mall to your room.

Swimming pool just normal size where you need to book before use the pool.

Overall, Yes, might stay again. Maybe 🙂

Goodbye Philippines. Hello Thailand :-)

During Pandemic, we had cancelled our travel plan in several destination, including Thailand on last February. In that’s time Covid-19 virus just started. So to be safe, we just stay where we are and that’s was in the Philippines.

Time pass by, we heard the news, the lockdown in Metro Manila starting hard from March which was ECQ ( Enhance Community Quarantine) until December 1, the city is now under GCQ (General Community Quarantine)

So for me, I am from Thailand and of course its time for me to go home when Philippines getting better in somehow and the repatriated flight from Thailand was started from October. But then it will take time and take cue and plan weather I will go home alone or with my husband.

Finally, I’ve learn the rules of all arrival passenger to Thailand must quarantine 15 days (Day arrived consider day ZERO) so better quarantine together, then decision take him with me is good idea 🙂

To start of document. We applied Non-O Immigrant visa since we married legally from Philippines ( We dont have married cert yet in Thailand) but at least you have legal document to support.

Non-O Visa process take almost a month since the Royal Thai Embassy busy for both Repatriated flight and Several Visa to Thailand after Thailand open country. I waiting for December flight and I found 1st commercial flight from Philippines Airline and we were so happy.

Aside from that’s Covid-19 insurance is needed. In summary here what you need when you travel to Thailand in whatever visa you may hold, here our timeline

Journey to Thailand 🇹🇭 เตรียมตัวกลับบ้านนาน เอกสารเยอะ แต่คุ้มที่ได้กลับ (ปล เราตรวจโควิทก่อนกลับเพื่อความสบายใจ)… กักตัว 15วัน ตรวจโควิทอีก 2 รอบ …พักแบบ ASQ ร่วมกับสามี
ทำตามระเบียบบ้านเมืองเราและรับผิดชอบต่อสังคม 🙏 รอวันเป็นอิสระ หลังกักตัว

Oct 20 – Submit Non O visa
Nov 10 – Released Visa, Reserve ASQ (Alternative State Quarantine Hotel)
Nov 18 – Submit for COE
Nov 28 – Drive tru RT PCR test Nasal and throat
Nov 30 – Covid-19 Result
Dec 1 – Am Get F2F from Baranagay Clinic
– Pm Get COE for Embassy and download T8 form
Dec 2 – Fly PR730✅ [1st Commercial flight]

For me its take time, all you need is plan and arrange document ready.

Once arrived at the airport just follow the system there Airport Personal will assist to verify document and temperature before let you walk through immigration which is they already have your name list with free SIM card there.

Welcome to Thailand!

At Royal Thai Embassy in Makati on Rada Street.
Visit Baragay BelAir Clinic for Fit to Fly Certificate
At The Suvanaphumi Airport, During Document Verification.
Received ASQ number Tag to identify yourself once you out at Airport Gate. All pickup personal will identify by your tag there.
Do wear face mask and face shield at all time

Approximately from arrival to pick up area took 30-40 mins depend how many people of your flight, but they will release passenger batch of 10.

I wish you all stay safe. Think Positive and respect the rules. Always remember, why you here.

JetStar Flight from Manila to Hokkaido

It was on my birthday and we were so busy during December, thought we didn’t make it on time. Plus, my hubby is Filipino so visa applied. But yeah, he got it on time!!!

Since there is no direct flight from Manila to Hokkaido so we just need to do little homework.

Day 1 – Flight from Manila to Hokkaido , Dinner at Ramen Arena

Day 2 – Otaru Day

Day 3 – Sapporo Clock Tower (Christmas Fiesta), Sapporo TV Tower, Hokkaido Government office

Day 4 – Mount Moiwa Ropeway, Sapporo Beer Garden

Day 5 – Flight back to Manila

Let’s start the Journey. We took flight with Jet Star and the flight start from Manila at 9AM, transit at Osaka, then touch down at Hokkaido in the night. ( I used to fly from Bangkok direct to Hokkaido, I wish one day Manila have direct flight too)

Ready for Hokkaido!!
View from 22A Seat
Arrived at Osaka Airport
Took Robot train shuttle to Transit
Self service Check in Kiosks
On Air, way to Hokkaido
Time to take JR Train to Sapporo
Train from New Chitose-Shi Airport > to Sapporo
Arrived at Sapporo main station – The most busies Train BUT!!! People discipline so no one going to push you just like you experience in Metro Manila 🙂

La Playa Beach Resort – Bantayan

So we pick La Playa Beach Resort because…..

1. Location at Beach Front.

2. Quiet and distance from Bar and Restaurant

3. Positive Review on Crew

4. Free Shuttle To/From Pier and Hotel

5. Middle place between Bantayan Town Proper and Santa Fe Pier

You can get a free shuttle once you arrive at Santa Fe pier or you can rent moto bike if you are light traveler.

Sunset – Look back to Hotel

Visit Boracay October 2018

Visited Borcay Day 2 after re-opening, all I can say it is hassle but if you well prepare like what requirement said. You will be OK!

We landed at Caticlan Airport at New Arrival, we took shuttle to pier its cost us 700 peso.(which is you can get something local and cheaper, just wait) – Something we noticed when we pass the check point ( Verified and get stamp certified approved to enter island)

The island shuttle reuse the ticket which is they should not.  One thing, we didn’t pay is when you Leave Boracay, No Environment to Pay again.

So when we leave, we took tricycle front of Mcodnal 5 of us cost 120peso. Nothing fancy, not VIP but stay local and save our budget. Why would we spend more and get less than expect right ?

Boracay sand it perfectly fine. Always love it here.


Hong Kong – The Lang Ham Hong Kong Hotel

We decided to stay in The Lang Ham Hotel Hong Kong by convert my Agoda reward point.

Location : Just ok, near Harbour City (Victoria Harbour), Star Ferry Pier,   East Tsim Sha Chui , Hong Kong Space Museum, Hong Kong Art Museum

Nearest MTR : Tsun Sha Tsui Station about 6 mins, 350 m to the Hotel

We checked in at Executive floor. Simple like Lang Ham style in Hong Kong. Breakfast also take place here and nothing fancy. The standard breakfast in ground floor much better.

Comfy bed and great shower room is my Fav!.

Drink offer in Executive lounge


Love Bathroom


Swimming pool in rooftop

Filipinos may enter Taiwan visa-free starting June

ข่าวดี!! สำหรับน้กท่องเที่ยวถือพาสปอร์ตฟิลิปินส์ คุณสามารถเดินทางเข้าไต้หวันโดยไม่ใช้วีซ่าตั้งแต่วันที 1 มิถุนายน 2017 นี้

Come June, Filipinos can go to Taiwan visa-free as the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has granted an exemption for Philippine travelers, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila has confirmed to ABS-CBN News.

The visa-free grant will be implemented on a trial basis for a year, starting June 1, 2017.

The TECO has yet to release details, but a Taiwanese news website reported on Wednesday that Filipinos may stay in Taiwan visa-free for up to 30 days.

The new policy is part of efforts of Taiwan to draw in more travelers from Southeast Asia.

Last October, Taiwan relaxed visa requirements for Filipinos, offering visa-free entry to Filipinos who have been issued visas to enter Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, any of the Schengen countries, the United Kingdom, or the United States.

TECO in Manila is expected to make the formal announcement on the visa exemption after the Holy Week.

Taiwan is an emerging destination for Filipino travelers, as the flight takes less than two hours.
