I Love You and I’m Not Embarrassed To Say That To the World

I almost died two weeks ago. I had an accident and it fractured three ribs and a scapula. It hurt A LOT. It was so painful that I’d rather have my heart broken than go through that kind of agony again. Crippled for almost two weeks now, I spent a lot of time in bed…


Long Distance Relationship- this shit is HARD!

Three months ago, I had my palm read by a soothsayer named Dodong Palad who has a stall in Roxas Night Market. He told me that I have an amazing career ahead of me but I won’t have the same luck in love. My initial reaction was “Sure, I’d rather have a thriving career. I don’t…


Casscapades in Batanes- Expenses | Tips

I have been bombarded with requests from my Facebook friends to blog about my expenses and some travel tips. So here it is! I just want to be clear that I am not a fan of backpacking. Aside from the fact that my health won’t permit me to backpack, I also believe that vacations should…


Sabtang Island Itinerary | Casscapades in Batanes

  Third day of my Batanes trip was dedicated for Sabtang Island. The day started pretty rough because I woke up with one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had. There was also an ugly swelling on my right eye that wouldn’t stop from watering.     I figured I got really exhausted from the South…


South Batan Itinerary | Casscapades in Batanes

My awesome tour guide intended the second day which was actually my birthday for the South Batan tour to make my day extra special. He said South Batan is his favorite and I would surely enjoy the trip. Sure enough, I had the best birthday celebration yet! First Stop: Chawa Viewing Deck I cannot even…


North Batan Itinerary | Casscapades in Batanes

North Batan is usually the first-day itinerary if you get a package tour in Batanes. I arrived in this heavenly place around 8am and since I didn’t have any sleep because of my Davao-Manila-Batanes flight schedule, I asked the tour guide if we can begin with the tour after lunch so that I can get…


I Found My Forever In Batanes

I cannot remember how I started to become obsessed with Batanes, but it has always been on my bucket list since time immemorial. When I got extremely sick last June, I thought of death. Then I got horrified with the thought of leaving this Earth without doing most of my dreams. I know it sounds…


Edna’s Filipino Cuisine and Pinoy Pinay Resto in L.A.

So I was cleaning my laptop and came across tons of photos from my U.S. trip last year that I haven’t uploaded yet- and OMG, I realized that I haven’t really blogged about most of my hustles there! So this week, I will try to dedicate some time to write about important events from that…


Gypsy Cafe – A Weekend That Was

If you are living in Davao, was on social media or watched the news last weekend, you would have known by now about the Roxas St. bombing last Friday in Davao City that took the lives of 15 innocent souls and injured many. It was a really sad weekend for all of us. I was in…


I Dated Myself For A Day and This Is What Happened

Yes, you read that right, I dated myself. I am single and I currently don’t date (by choice, I just need to point that out, okay? Lol). I have no one to go out with. Two of my closest friends now live in Visayas (on two separate Philippine Islands), the other one can’t find time…
