This was the view we saw when we arrived. Wonderful! I think we stayed on the 5th or 4th room with pool access from the right side.

Oh the BEACH!

Receiving Area

Time to check in

Our room with extra bed for our bags. hahaha


Mini liquors and noodles (the overpriced items)

Love ko talaga yun room namin, hahaha

The Breakfast buffet - they have fruits, sweets...

sandwiches, breads, biscuits, juices...

Salad station

Heavy Breakfast for the big day ahead

The Verdict:

This is my first time to visit island called Boracay. I have no idea where to stay and which station is better but with the help of my friend Dale, who has a travel agency. He was the one managed our honeymoon in just a short span of time with a discounted rate. Thank you so much twin sister! Hahaha He just gave us some few options then everything is set. Woot woot! So after the wedding, we just rest a few days to figure something out then poof! Our adventure begins in Boracay. 

The Boracay Ocean Club Beach Resort is located at station 3. Well, we decided it is much better if we excluded ourselves from the crowd. It was a success! I love the place, far from the party area, quiet and relaxing. We were surprised that our room has a pool access on its balcony. Hihi I am totally a happy kid. I do not have a negative comment with this hotel. All of the staffs were polite and very accommodating even if some of them were having a hard time to express themselves with Tagalog because their main dialect is Bisaya. Moreover, the buffet breakfast was good. they offered different choices almost everyday. We enjoyed every morning we wake up. haha The drinks also were good, if you will try their cocktails for a night and too lazy to go to the bar outside the hotel just like us. We ordered some mojitos and beers. Then, go for a night swim too. They also have fire dancers and live bands during the night. No need to go far.

Just a minor detail, the front of the beach on their side has a lot of boats. Unlike the other stations, they have less boats or in our local terms banka in their shore. They have a better place to swim. However, you can just walk to station 1 and 2 to have a better view. I remember one more thing, the internet connection was a little slow. But who needs internet connection if you will stay in a place like Boracay. Hello! be with the nature ;) 

Our rate for this hotel will be
4.5 out of 5 stars

Will I recommend this place? HELL YEAH!

The television

The Verdict:

My friends were the one responsible for the reservation of this room. They surprised me with my bachelorette mean girls party last December here. It was a wholesome event. Hahaha The room was spacious. We have more space to play random games. It has a receiving arrive with sofas, mini kitchen, bathroom and of course! the bedroom. It is like a condominium with one bedroom that was the set up of our room. The photos provided was after the party (so it is a little untidy). The security of the hotel was strict so if you will have a surprise thingy with this hotel, don't forget to instruct them immediately. Hahaha

The location of the hotel is like a hidden gem in Makati. It took us a little hard to locate it. However, the hotel is surrounded with different restaurants and bars. If you are looking place for place to be drunk and you can't even go home. This a nice place to stay and chill the next day. 

I will rate this hotel with
4 stars out of 5 stars

Monasterio de Tarlac 

Last year, we joined another pilgrimage in our church community. It was one of the far visita iglesia I have ever done but it was worth it as always. On the photo above, in Monasterio de Tarlac they have a replica of Rio's Christ Redeemer. No need to go far to have a photo like that one, just visit Tarlac.

Inside Monasterio de Tarlac, I am not sure if it is a chapel.

The view is breathtaking. =) Nature is LOVE.

I ❤ Monasterio de Tarlac signage

Our next stop, Our Lady of Manaog Church in Pangasinan

Candles -  as much as possible we light candles in every church

Our Lady of Manaog

It is open to public to touch or to hold the statue of Our Lady of Manaog. Everyone can have moment with it. Knee and touch and pray for your intentions.

St. Joseph the Patriarch Parish - Mapanda, Pangasinan

Inside the church

San Pedro y San Pedro Church - Calasiao, Pangasinan

I don't have a photo inside the church. I think we were on a hurry during those time.

St. John The Evangelist Cathedral - Dagupan, Pangasinan

Inside the church -  this the last stop for our station of the cross and we attended a mass.

It is a nice experience going to the different churches for station of the cross with our community or with our family. It feels like a renewal of faith. Getting to know yourself and a spiritual journey towards God. It feels good to know and to talk to people with their stories on how they are very thankful with God and how they have changed because of their faith. This holy week start your own tradition with your family by going to different churches and pray the station of the cross. As what they say, the family that prays together stays together. A little advise, don't forget to bring bottles of cold water, food and a few prayer books during the trip. Another one, plan it ahead of time. 

 List of Churches:

  • Monasterio de Tarlac 
  • Our Lady of Manaog Church in Pangasinan
  • St. Joseph the Patriarch Parish - Mapanda, Pangasinan
  • San Pedro y San Pedro Church - Calasiao, Pangasinan
  • St. John The Evangelist Cathedral - Dagupan, Pangasinan

At the back

Natural color for my face, it blends perfectly on my face

I tried blended it on my hand and wash it with water. It looks like it is waterproof so I feels like sweat proof, less retouch the better. 

During my haul from Sephora, I bought this item because I was looking for a liquid foundation that will really cover up my blemishes. It was Godsend when I saw this on their site. I read some reviews and they gave it some pleasing comments from other beauty bloggers and vloggers. I might have plenty of lipsticks but other beauty products is not my forte, so reading and watching a lot of reviews helps me convince myself that I need this item. Hahaha 

The Verdict:

This is one of my first liquid foundation. It did not disappoint me. It is easy to apply. It covers my blemishes. Plusssss! It have a 10 hour wear perfection foundation. It last the whole day. No need to retouch every hour. When I apply this product, I usually put some primer first dub it using a beauty blender. Then, finished it with power foundation para kapit ganern! Lol The smell it is nice, it has almost no smell. I like it that way. It cost 972.00php in Sephora Ph site. Will I buy it again? Sure, why not! 

I will rate this with
4.5 stars out of 5 stars
