Top 9 Active Vacation Destinations

Sometimes, we need a break. A proper break, from our lives and stresses, but also from activity. We need to lie by a pool for hours at a time, sipping cocktails and reading easy books. We need slow walks across the beach and afternoons in the spa. We need time to do as little as possible to recharge our batteries and catch up on our rest.

Sometimes, it’s good to be lazy, to chill out and to give ourselves time to relax and unwind. These kinds of vacations are ideal after a busy period of work, or when you’ve got a lot on your mind, and you need to take some time just to think. You can come home feeling refreshed and ready to get back into things.

But, these kinds of a trip aren’t for everyone all of the time. Sometimes relaxing by the beach all of the time feels like a waste. When you’ve got energy to burn you might want to spend your time being more active. Some people even find it easier to clear their minds when their bodies are moving. They find it easier to think and to sort through their thoughts when they are moving, seeing new sites and enjoying all that the world has to offer.

Travel Fashionably From Head To Toe Around South East Asia

In case you’re not familiar with my traveling style, my traveling style is something in-between a budget traveler and not-so luxurious one.

I mean, I’m totally fine with the idea of staying at a cheap motel with a small room as long as I could get a quality time through doing my makeup without any disruption. I’m not exactly the kind of person who would ask for a pic anytime I see a good stop for the ‘gram, but clothes and makeup are the essential things for me to travel comfortably.

I’m not exactly fashionable, as I’m kind of a sucker when it comes to the idea of mix and match things I’ve got in my clothes. However, I’m not exactly a t-shirt and jeans kind of person either.

So, if you could relate to the situation and you’re planning to travel around South East Asia, let me share with you the tips and trick on how to travel fashionably in this part of the world! 😉

What You Could Get In Angeles City For $10 – Los(t) Angeles

If you had to associate the word Angeles with a city, what would be the first thing that comes in mind?!

You’re not alone if you’ll come with Los Angeles, because that’s gonna be my initial answer too. That, until I got connected to Ruben and Rachel from Gamintraveler for this week’s $10 series. Ruben contacted me to cover Angeles City, and I literally had to google it first, because I don’t know much about the Philippines.

I mean, I’ve only been to the Philippines once, and it was only to Manila.

It’s always exciting to learn a new thing, and from that I found out some fun facts about Angeles City in the Philippines that makes it quite interesting to visit. Not only that is the home of the former Clark Air Base, which was then the largest US military facility outside the US), it was also affected by the fallout caused by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991.

This leads to another interesting thing, because with the presence of the US military base in the city, it also triggered the prostitution industry in the highly urbanized city in the region of Central Luzon. Given the idea, the city is dubbed as the “Sin City”.

But if you’re not interested in exploring that area, worry not… Because now we’re gonna talk about what else you can do with your $10 in the city!

Around The World With The Beauties! – (Indonesia) Roro Mendut Royal Black Spice V-Scrub & (Philippines) Bare Body Essentials Vanity Mask Double Deep Repair

Hello beauties! 😀

It’s been awhile since the last time I wrote my own piece for Around The World With The Beauties series, so as I got connected with Amanda from Filipinow for this month’s feature… I decided to feature my recommendation as well this time.

A few months ago, I featured some other Filipino and Bruneian local beauty products as they’re both ASEAN country members. Now, well… Both Indonesia and the Philippines are also the country members of ASEAN, but other than that, do you know that we’ve shared so many similarities between the two countries?

First of all, both are archipelagic countries comprising thousands of island in each country. Not to mention that they are also republic countries, with both have elected president as their head of government. Although I just finished the other Pramoedya’s books Child of All Nations and I just found out an interesting fact: Philippines is the first republic country in Asia.

Although I’m not gonna talk about it this time, as we’re gonna focus on the beauty stuff. 😉
