Manila Bay Romantic Dinner Cruise

Manila Bay.. Famous for its Sunset… Agree??!

I’ve seen the sunset several times but never this close. Speechless..

Catching The Sun

I never realized it would be such an experience. Seeing the sun slowly going down the horizon was marvelous.. The mixture of colors in the sky as it slowly changes from to blue to violet to orange then red. Wow!!!

Before boarding the Cruise

Being able to travel and work at the same time is one of the best thing. For 3 months, I’m not just able to learn something new for work, I was also able to visit places like London, Liverpool, Manchester, Chester and Knutsford and stayed in Northwich. Not bad for my very first out of the country trip.

Puerto Princesa Palawan

How do I ended up going to Palawan?

Last March, I was just checking one of our local groupon site for a nice deal and without having any second thought I bought the deal. Voila! The deal is mine! Haha.. I actually thought redeeming it would be easy but you still have to make advance reservation so that they can get you a flight on your desired date.

Yes! Airfare is part of the deal. A Romantic Two-Nights Stay for Two Persons in Palawan, Roundtrip Airfare, Hotel, Island Hopping for P9900. Haha! Not bad right?
