The violent past of Corregidor Island has made it infamous for eerie, scary encounters. But the place is oozing with significant marks of a time when the world was at war - an opportunity for families to learn together about our country’s rich history.

Lake Buhi, Camarines Sur

What we appreciated most was that we were along the shores of Lake Buhi. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll see the Mayon Volcano from a distance - it’s distinct, perfect cone peering through the mountains surrounding it. There are places around Lake Buhi Resort where you can just chill, watch your kids run around, and take a moment of mindfulness.

Youniversity Suites: Bringing Back Life to Manila

By the 21st century, you'd think the Laperal was a goner - I mean it was dilapidated, and there was hardly anything that could be salvable. However, its current owners started work on Laperal for about two and a half years after they bought it.

A Glimpse of Claveria, Cagayan

Last December, my boys and I decided to go on a 5-day road trip up north ~ a family tradition we do every end of year. We spent a few nights in Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Abra. Unfortunately, it was raining hard throughout our stay in Pagudpud (Amihan season for that area, sadly), but on one of the days that the weather was forgiving, Bobby and I decided to drive all the way to Claveria, Cagayan (the nearest town from where we were).
