Are you heading somewhere with the family this coming Semestral Break? Surely, you got everything prepared – hotel accommodation, plane ticket (if you’re travelling by plane), and even what to bring and wear. Your kids even made their own countdown calendar, which adds to the excitement. Before you enjoy your upcoming vacation, have you considered getting a travel insurance to secure the family?I know what you’re thinking: you don’t need travel insurance. After all, you’re going somewhere where risks are low and at the same time, you have a credit card that will keep you covered…

5 Best Cars for Modern Moms (That Are Not Minivans!)

at

Note: This is a sponsored post. Photos from Cars.com websiteOnce upon a time, minivans are every mom’s best friend. It is big, spacious, and perfect for play dates and carpool with your kids’ friends. Fast forward today, moms are going for more stylish cars without compromising safety, comfort, space, and of course, fuel economy.I have to admit: I am a bit choosy with cars, although I don’t mind if it’s brand new or previously-owned. When my husband asked me what car I like, I considered not only the safety and the newest features…

#TMCReview: Quickie Weekend Getaway at Taal Vista Hotel

at

Kids are growing up too fast these days. At one point, they are just crying and pooping machines and the next thing you know, they can do things on their own and speak up their mind. This is why my husband and I always make it a point to spend time with the kids as much as we can. We love going to different places, but due to constraints, we settle in the Philippines (for now). One February weekend, my husband and I decided to go on a quick getaway with out girls Tagaytay is our go-to place…

Travel Tips for Budget-Savvy Families

at

I love travelling. I love the idea of visiting a new place, enjoying the community, trying new food, and being away from home even for a few days. Let’s admit it. Travel and saving are two concepts which often don’t go well together.When I was younger (and still living with my parents), travelling was never an issue. Now that I’m older and a family on my own, I want to make sure that my kids get to experience what I had without being too heavy on the budget. I want them to visit places, see with…

#TMCMoneyTips: Save More while Travelling through Shopback

at

Every summer, my family and I often travel to different places. It could be trips to Tagaytay to eat bulalo in a cool weather, overnight beach trips in Subic and Batangas, going to Baguio so we can wear our coats and jackets – and eat strawberries too, and even visiting Disneyland to see Mickey Mouse. I never worried about expenses since my parents paid for everything.Now that I have my own family, I want my kids to experience the joys of travelling. I want them to see and experience something new. I want them to appreciate what the world has…

Review: The Lighthouse Marina Resort in Subic

at

Finally, a weekend getaway. My kids, especially my eldest, are currently addicted to the zoo. Since it was my mom and sister’s birthdays and there is a zoo up north with more animals and activities compared to the one in Tagaytay, we decided it could be a good opportunity to have a weekend away from the metro. I’ve always been curious about The Lighthouse in Subic and heard good reviews about the hotel. With my mom’s approval, I decided to book rooms for us and I must say we made a good choice. Rooms…

Momma Travels: The Baguio Adventure

at

Growing up in the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio will always have a special place in my heart. But because of school and pregnancies, it took a while for me to go back. So when my husband said he wanted to go to Baguio for December, I immediately said yes – and made reservations at The Forest Lodge as early as June.I was really excited to go back. Not just because the last time I went there was during my college days, but it’s also the first time I’ll go to Baguio with my kids.Of course…

Momma Tips: Travel Essentials with Kids

at

We never travel abroad with our girls but we sure do bring them in different places in and out of the metro. Tagaytay has always been a favorite since it’s nearer and the weather is just right. Fontana is always a pleaser whenever we want to get away in the city. This year, my family decided to bring our yearly December trip up north: Baguio.Travelling with kids can be fun and hassle at the same time. We get to visit different places and create new memories with the girls. The downside: there are so many things to bring…

My kids, especially my eldest since she’s the one who knows about animals, love the zoo. When we went to Tagaytay last December 2013, we made it a point to schedule a trip to the zoo so they can see how animals looked in real life and not just in books. I’m not sure if there are other zoos in Tagaytay so we headed straight to Residence Inn.  Residence Inn Zoo is smaller compared to the other zoos I’ve been to. It may be because of space limitations, I don’t really know. Still, all the “basic…

Momma Tips: 10 Tips when Travelling with Kids

at

My family and I recently had a vacation and it was the first time for us to travel with the babies. My husband and I decided not to bring a nanny with us and being a nanny-dependent that I am, I find this really challenging.The original plan was that my sister will ride with us in the car so I have someone to help me in taking care of my two babies. But due to changes in the plan (we were not supposed to come anymore), we ended up going to our place of destination with just me…

#ThrowbackThursday: The Ilocos Adventure

at

Last Holy Week 2011, before I found out I was pregnant with my first child, my husband (then boyfriend) and his family went to Ilocos. It was a first time for me and it’s definitely an experience I’ll never forget.The travel was really exhausting. 16-hour drive is no joke and we were all cramped up because we rented a coaster. We left our place at around 10PM so most of us were just asleep the whole night. After that long drive, finally we reached our first tourist destination – Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Ilocos Norte. After picture…
