Summer 2017

What's up guys? It is my favorite time of the year again! And to make this summer blog post different from the others, I am going to answer random questions asked by my friends and followers on Instagram and Twitter. While some of you might say summer is over, welp, I live in Asia where it is sunny almost all year round. So "weather" you like it or not, here we go!

Your favorite summer travel destination/s?
Bali, Indonesia! Because I had the best summer there back in 2013. Read my travel diary here. In my country, I would say the best ones I've been to is in Bolinao, Pangasinan and San Juan, La Union. I have never seen such clear waters like the one we have in Bolinao beach, and that really makes me proud to be from the province of Pangasinan. For my San Juan, La Union surfing experience read here.

The mountains or the beaches?
Beaches! Because I can't imagine myself, ever, hiking. I know there are a lot of health benefits in hiking and trekking, but also in sun-bathing and swimming. Isn't it? So yeah, I choose the beach.

One-piece swimsuit or Bikini?
One-piece swimsuit, unless I stay and swim in a private pool villa like the ones we see in all those Maldives advertisements - then I would wear a bikini. But I am just not confident enough in a bikini and unfit for it, so one-piece swimsuit would do. There are actually a lot of designs you can choose from, my favorites are from Boom Sasoon swimsuit collection. Not so boring at all!

Give 3 summer must-haves.
Banana Boat Sport sunscreen lotion, the spray is less effective. Sunnies shades. Proper swimwear. Additional: A book to read, I suggest China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan. Fresh coconut juice or any drinks for you to re-hydrate. A selfie stick or a partner, for solo travelers. Haha!

What is your summer anthem?
It's a bit outdated but I still like this song. "If I lose Myself - (Alesso remix) One Republic" in reference to my Summer 2015 experience, read more here. It is still my favorite summer jam. Okay, now I feel a bit nostalgic.

What is the best summer color/s?
Blue! 

Blog or vlog? 
Well if I were at the beach, it'd be a lot easier to just record clips for a vlog than bring my laptop there and write. But I like both and I've been posting vlogs on my Youtube channel once in a while. But, who knows, I might be a full time vlogger in the future!

The Empire Hotel Brunei

As promised, here are some photos from inside The Empire Hotel and Country Club in Brunei. Impressive isn't it? What also made my stay here more interesting was meeting some of our Kababayans. It's true that almost everywhere in the world, there is a Filipino. You'll recognize the familiar friendly smiles, the polite gestures and sense of humour when having a conversation with them. Bruneians are as well good natured people, thoughtful and welcoming, so I had no trouble blending in. In fact, I met these group of teenage girls in The Empire Hotel while taking a dip one afternoon. Most of them were shy but that's not stopping them from being nice and all. Here's a shout out to you my dear @alexismhjpowers! See you again soon!
