Apart from Nacpan Beach, another place that I highly recommend you check out when you are in El Nido is Corong-Corong Beach.

I'm so glad we discovered this beautiful place. I highly recommend that you check it out!

2014 Palawan Getaway: Exploring Nacpan Beach.

Another highlight of our trip in El Nido was our day trip to Nacpan Beach.

Inspite of a cloudy weather, we still found the beach very beautiful.

It was a long drive from the city, but we can truly say that it was worth it!

No Time for What really Matters? Stop Doing Things that Don't.

On our first day in El Nido, it was quite drizzling so I just wore my usual top and shorts for the day.

It was a rainy day but still a beautiful day. There is no day wasted when you are in the island of El Nido. ♥

2014 Palawan Getaway: Our Last Night in Puerto Princesa

Our last night in Puerto Princesa was spent in a nice restaurant with good food and open air ambiance.

We had so much fun and definitely a perfect place to bond as a family.

Now, we needed a complete rest for an adventure that awaits us in El Nido.

A Brand New Guitar for the Birthday Boy!

Somebody's birthday is coming very, very soon. In fact it's 3 days away from now and I'm thinking of getting him the best gift. Yes, it has to be the BEST. After all, the best guy deserves the best gift, right?

So I'm getting this super xxx that the Husband would definitely love. A new amp for him! It features a 40W of all-tube power through a 12" Triple XXX 30 speaker delivers stellar tone with high gain and ample volume for most gigs. This is a fantastic amp for the studio, it features an Accutronics spring reverb and footswitchable effects loop. What he will love about it is that it is also clean, crunch, and ultra channels with independent EQ and tight, medium, and loose resonance control.

I think I found the super perfect gift for him. Now off to ordering the item! ♥♥♥

OOTD in 2014 Palawan Getaway: Second Day in Puerto Princesa

Our second day in PP we decided to explore the city. So I wore a comfortable pair of shorts and top, with my favorite statement necklace for this trip...

Very comfortable, indeed!

2014 Palawan Getaway: Trying out the Famous KALUI.

I'm sure that you've heard about Kalui when a friend or a relative came from PP, why is that? Because it's one of the popular restaurants in the city!

You can not miss this one when you are in the area.

The food is good, fresh seafoods, the restaurant is unique with the open air feel plus requiring you to go barefoot. It is definitely a must to eat here when you are in town.

The entire family loved every bit of what we ordered (and yes that includes my kids)!

I highly recommend that you try it too! Kalui is located at 369, Rizal Avenue, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines.

Sharing a Song this SUNDAY: Eet

A nice song to listen and enjoy this beautiful day.

Eet by Regina Spektor. Good day, peeps!

2014 Palawan Getaway: Our First Dinner at PP was at Kinabuch's Grill and Bar

This is where we had our first dinner in Puerto Princesa.

Good food and the service was good too. We didn't have to wait long for our food. I highly recommend it!

KINABUCHS Grill and Bar is located at Rizal Ave. Brgy Bancao Bancao Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
