Hong Kong DIY Itinerary: 4 Days and 4 Nights

It’s that time of the year again–for our annual family vacation. After much thought, we decided on Hong Kong, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations.

I was assigned to make the itinerary, which I was able to do with the help of Google. Thank you, technology! However, we weren’t able to do everything we wanted, but at the end of this article, I’m going to show you the itinerary I planned for 31 May to June 4. The itinerary is complete with costs, transportation instructions, and other activities.

Now, most itineraries you will find on the Internet will include day tours to either Macau or Shenzen, which we decided to forego. Of course, it really depends on your preference. For this trip, we decided we wanted to see more of Hong Kong. Here’s a quick summary video of our amazing trip!

The Secret to Getting a US Visa

My sister and I just got approved last Monday–and we received our visas Wednesday (just two days after the interview)!

I decided to share with you what we went through so that we could be of help because the journey wasn’t that smooth. To guide you in applying for a US visa, everything you need is in this link. I read that everyday to ensure that I didn’t make any mistake.

But I still made some bloopers. So don’t fret. It’s best to be ready, to double check everything. The lesson I learned is this: that no matter how ready I sometimes think I am, I still get hit in the face by something I never thought of.

Holy Week 2017 & the Supremo 4K

Similar to last Holy Week, I spent this year again with Mark’s family in Bukidnon. Last year, we had a Bukidnon-Davao roadtrip then we stayed in Samal Island for three days. This year, we spent two and a half days in their farm in Lantapan, Bukidnon, then we went back to Cagayan de Oro for a staycation.

The trip was also a good opportunity to use my newly bought Supremo 4K action camera. I bought the Supremo 4K while I was renewing my Globe postpaid plan. I had been contemplating since last year about buying a GoPro but I was hesitant to spend a lot given that I don’t really spend a lot of time doing thrilling hobbies such as cliff diving, sky diving, etc. Basically, I just wanted to make videos again and not have to carry around a DSLR or a video camera. So I thought the Supremo 4K was a good deal at PhP 4,390 (which can be deferred up to 3 months).

Summer escapade with the dogs! (Budget beach trip with style)

It’s the summer season already! Beach photos are once again flooding our timelines and news feeds. This is our first summer with our Snoopy, and like most dog owners, we wanted to take him to the beach.

However, we were on a tight budget so we had to look for a beach resort that would not be too expensive. We also wanted one that is not that far from Laguna. Thanks to Google and some friends, we found out about Katungkulan Beach Resort in Ternate, Cavite, which is also known as Boracay de Cavite. Dave and Christine joined us with their dachshund Derp, who is also actually Snoopy’s best friend. Oh when those two are together, it’s chaos, and they never get tired of playing.
