Summer Knitting

Yesterday, I knitted while having lunch and coffee at Summer Cafe in Coron. It was a ray of sunshine amidst the gloomy day.

It was fun to knit, be my foodie self, and explore nature all one day. Hope to have more memories with the things that make me happy.  

Coron Adventure

Yesterday, I conquered my fears of the open water and narrow caves. Coron brought out the adventurer in me and I enjoyed it. Here are some photos proving that my fitness journey is all worth it.

Here’s to more tours with Mother Nature to come!

Rainy Boracay

It was a rainy last day in Boracay. I worked out, ate breakfast, and enjoyed the rain along the shore. The beach is gorgeous and the view is unforgettable.  

I hope to be back someday!

I braved the monsoon to eat the famous piri piri chicken plate at Spicebird. That was delicious!

I also went back to a Boracay Leathers to buy a coin purse. I highly recommend this store for quality handmade leather goods.

Later that night, my friend Pia took me out to have gingertinis at Aplaya. It was so good!

I can say that the island life is a relaxing break from the busy city and it was a privilege to experience it. It was also lovely to catch up with a friend. On to our next adventure!

It was a treat to watch the waves crashing by as I stitched my scarf.

I also got to buy functional souvenirs from local handmade merchants, such as Boracay Leathers.

When it was time for a cuppa, I went to Real Coffee to sample their barako and famous calamansi muffins.

And even if I’m not into swimming, I enjoyed the remarkable white sand and pristine waters of Boracay.

Getting out of my comfort zone is part of the journey. For every new experience, there is always knitting to keep me going so I know that there’s something to look forward to. 

Crochet in the Sky

It’s my first time at Boracay! I started my day with black coffee before boarding my flight with my mom and maternal relatives.

It was a dream come true to crochet in an airplane. I enjoyed my leisurely flight as I hooked my way to landing.

I even crocheted in the ferry.

Boracay is breathtakingly beautiful! I can’t get enough of the clear waters and fine white sand.

Our bedroom came with a teddy bear named Bogart. It was a fun touch that I immediately warmed up to.

I can’t wait to explore the island more as I crochet, knit, and enjoy!

Banaue Day 3 Part 1: The Most Beautiful Sunrise I Have Ever Seen

I woke up before six in the morning on our last day at Uhaj, Banaue.

I was able to witness the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen at the comfort of our inn’s restaurant. 

It was magical. I had the whole restaurant to myself.

Well, Rain did keep me company in the middle of it.

Rain was still there!

The fog suddenly dissipated and the rice terraces eventually said hello!

It transformed me. Oh, and I had delicious coffee to sip while watching the sun shine over the mountains.

I then walked around the village inn grounds to stretch and reflect on the breathtaking view I witnessed.
