First-time Expat: My realizations while living in Dubai

April 24, 2017 0
It took us months to get all the required documents collected and authenticated. So I was surprised when our papers were approved after just a month. Everything moved so fast as soon as my entry permit to Dubai was finally issued. I was given a two month pass to enter the UAE, which was enough time to process my papers -- with that being said, getting the actual residency visa stamped on my passport, and passing my medical exam. I wasn't prepared to leave. But after much debate with my husband about my departure date, I left the Philippines half-anxious and half-excited. I just had to remind myself that “this was it!” My husband and I were one step closer to bridging the LDR gap.

CabinZero Urban Camo: The stylish and quintessential traveler's backpack

April 17, 2017 0
I stopped using my luggage for a while now. And in those years, I’ve managed to explore with only a 55L rucksack and a sling bag in tow. But as time passed, I started to experience these intense back pains (due to a bad sitting posture at work), which eventually restrained me from having to carry heavy things on my spine. So I had no other choice but to use my trolley again. But on the upside, it gave me a reason to start looking for better bag alternatives, and eventually found CabinZero, “the suitcase on your back”. My mini, 28-liter, Urban Camo CabinZero is hardwearing, well-designed, stylish and more! What more can I ask for?

Casa Pura Inn & Suites: An affordable option for your wedding preps in Quezon City

April 01, 2017 0
Booking two rooms for our May wedding a year ago was a last minute decision, as we were already set to do our preps at our house in Quezon City. But since the weather back then was very hot and humid, my husband and I both agreed that checking into a better accommodation would be more favorable for us (no melting make-up and sweat-soaked clothing). The price and location were major factors to consider, both of which were easily accommodated by Casa Pura Inn & Suites.
