Coron Revisited: Seeing Something New in Something Old

I have been to Coron back in 2013, it has been more than two years since my last visit. It may not seem like a long time, but to put things in perspective, I've been to other beaches in Southeast Asia. This allowed me to see something new in something that I have been to before.

Glowing start for first Jetstar Japan’s Manila-Narita service

Jetstar Japan’s first international service from the Philippines has taken to the skies in a big way with its inaugural flight to Tokyo departing at full capacity, as travellers from Manila – and beyond – enjoy the new low-fares connection offered by Japan’s largest low-cost carrier.

The first Japanese low-cost carrier to operate services in Manila, Jetstar Japan’s inaugural flight from Manila to Tokyo departed at full capacity at 1.05am, arriving at Tokyo’s Narita Airport at 6.15am. This is the first of its three new international routes scheduled for roll-out in the coming month.
The success of the inaugural flight heralds a new dawn for travellers here and signals the support by local travellers for our brand and low fares to Japan, said Jetstar Japan’s Chairman, Mr Masaru Kataoka, in Manila today.



Journey to Fushimi Inari Shrine

I was in Japan for a few days, I was torn between staying the whole time in Tokyo or Osaka. I wanted to stay in the former because I had friends to meet there, while the latter was a place I was more interested in because of its history and culture. In the end I decided to go to both places, which was a rushed trip because I only had five days total in Japan.

Itinerary and Expenses for Occidental Mindoro Trip

I only managed to scratch the surface on my trip to Occidental Mindoro, but it was an adventure. The verdant countryside, rural atmosphere, friendly locals, beautiful attractions and all the other travel cliches you can think of were present in this island.

A Trip to Minalungao National Park

Our motley crew of travel buddies decided to go on a day trip to Minalungao National Park in Nueva Ecija. I have yet to visit the park and i was eager to hit the ground running once we got off the tricycle that took us there.
