KL Shenanigans

From our few kalokohans back then to #KLokohan now, I was more than ecstatic for this trip because it was the first time I flew out of the country with my friends. 🙂

Legoland Malaysia

Petronas Twin Towers – Merdeka Square – Central Market – Menara KL Tower

Batu Caves

It’s definitely just the start of a handful adventures with my favorites.  ❤

Can’t Go Wrong, Morong!

This was the last leg of my summer shenanigans. We hopped on to a weekend up north at Morong, Bataan together with Dad’s colleagues.

We stayed in Coralview Beach Resort. It’s along the row of beach resorts in Morong, you won’t get lost. You’ll be welcomed by the locals selling key chains, fresh fishes and pasalubongs.

Though it wasn’t white sand, thumbs up on how everything looked so clean despite it being a commercialized shoreline. (And hi there, doggie!)

Island Hopping.

We did island hopping the next day. There are bangkeros around offering their services, go nego with them. 🙂

 First stop was the Pawikan Island, with barely pawikans honestly. But the municipality is working on growing their family by culturing pawikan eggs. (Oh, look how cute is that baby pawikan! 🙂 )

Next was the White Sand Island and indeed, it had white sand! 😉 Noticeable were the rocks  covered in moss thus, not making it a swimming friendly island. (Tip: Go to the farthest part of the island and have a glimpse of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.)

The finale of the island hopping was at the middle of the sea (really!) for snorkeling. This sealed the deal! There were no fishes around (we didn’t found Nemo or Dory 😦 ) but the water was so pristine and how many times can you float literally in the middle of nowhere.

Being a south kid, it was refreshing that we didn’t went with the usual suspects like Subic, Clark, etc. Can’t wait to be surprised yet again by  the north!

I Fell for Hulugan

Just a few hours from Manila lies a serene gem waiting to be uncovered. Hulugan Falls, located in Luisana, Laguna, is the newest spot for adventurers seeking for a quick weekend escapade.

We started the day in Kagawad’s House where we paid the entrance fee (P 20.00 each) and met our designated guide. (Tip: It’s best that you bring your own food as there aren’t much choices here.  Also, pay for the guide depends on you – just please give those Kuyas enough. 😉 )

We continued trekking for almost an hour. It was a struggle (newbie trekkers, I guess. Haha), the path was muddy (it was raining the night before), the summer heat killed us but hey, we made it! 😉

Tadaaa, Hulugan Falls! 🙂 There are actually three falls you can go to: Hulugan-Talay-Aliw Falls but, we decided to stay in Hulugan because of the rain. 😦 You can kill time here for as long as you want though it’s safer to be back to the starting point before the dark kicks in.

Glad that places like this are just towns away from home. It’s perfect for an easy  getaway from the cityscape. Go pack your bags and drive to Laguna now!
