Tickled in Pink: A Shabby Chic Vacation House in Tagaytay

If you are like me who’s obsessed with anything pink and pretty, I’m sure this vacation home in Tagaytay would be like a fairy tale to you. 

Long before I even got a chance to stay at Tagaytay Highlands, I’ve always thought that the houses and available accommodation inside this exclusive community are all log cabin types.

Blushing Taiwan: Where to See the ‘Pinkest’ Cherry Blossoms in Taiwan

When people think of seeing cherry blossoms, what immediately comes to mind is either Japan or South Korea. But did you know that the humble, little country of Taiwan also has some stunning cherry blossoms of its own? I dare say that it can even rival Japan’s cherry blossoms.

There are actually a lot of places in Taiwan where you can view cherry blossoms but in this post, I will share with you where you can find the ‘pinkest’ cherry blossoms in Taiwan.

Travel Guide: Masamerey Beach in Sual, Pangasinan


Pangasinan is most famous for the Hundred Islands National Park, the golden beach of Bolinao and more recently, the Cabongaoan Death Pool.

A Hidden Gem In Tagaytay: El Cocinero In La Bella Residences

Just when I thought I’ve had enough of Tagaytay, I’ve stumbled upon this charming restaurant that effortlessly transported me to the best of Europe all at once—Greece, Spain, and Italy.

I’m talking about El Cocinero by Chef Arnaldo, a secluded Spanish restaurant veiled inside La Bella Residences, a real-estate development, which prides itself as a “health and wellness haven,” at Barangay Neogan in Tagaytay City.

I visited the restaurant last summer with my family and we were happily surprised to find this off-the-grid dining destination, away from the chaotic side of Tagaytay. We were so drawn not only with the Mediterranean vibes and feels of the place but also with the food, bursting with authentic Spanish flavors! It’s a fusion like no other—cozy atmosphere plus flavorful food equals a truly good time.
