Vietnam 2016 : My Birthday Trip

I admit it’s only my 3rd solo backpacking experience and I chose to travel in Hanoi, Vietnam mainly because it’s for my birth month and it’s just 3 hour trip away from my home country which is the Philippines. My first solo backpacking trip was in Bantayan Island, Cebu, Philippines last May 2015 and then followed by Melbourne/Adelaide/Sydney/Canberra Australia last April 2016.

Champions’ Forum 2015

Champions’ Forum 2015 – 200 top consumer sales performers from Asia Pacific assembled in Melbourne, Australia last April 20-24, 2016.

Champions’ Forum is a ‘Reward & Recognition’ program for Citi’s Asia Pacific Consumer Bank. It was first launched in 2003 to acknowledge the top sales performers and was run across Consumer Finance, Cards and Asset (Loans) product groups. It is a regional program across Asia Pacific.

More than the awesome places I’ve been and the amazing people I’ve met, I am forever grateful for this recognition I received from my employer. If it wasn’t because of the award I wouldn’t be able to travel to Australia, my first ever overseas trip. My take home for this trip is to enjoy and love what you do and to always give your best foot forward.

Chocolate Hills: Not Your Ordinary Chocolates!!

More than 1,300 individual hills cover more than 50 square kilometres and range from 30 to 90 metres in height.This extraordinary landscape is unique to this small island.


Mayon Volcano: Philippines’ Most Scenic Airport Landing

Legazpi Airport, located in the province of Albay, is the most scenic airport landing I have been in the Philippines. It’s backdrop is the world’s famous volcano, Mayon Volcano,  renowned as the “perfect cone” because of its almost symmetric-conical shape, the mountain was declared a national park and a protected landscape on July 20, 1938, the first in the country. It was reclassified a Natural Park and renamed Mayon Volcano Natural Park in the year 2000.

How to get to Mayon Volcano:

  1. Find your way to Cubao Provincial bus station near Ali Mall.
  2. Take a bus that will go directly or will pass by Legazpi City, Albay. Bus fare around Php 700 – 900.
