0 Going to Boracay Guide

Even though Boracay is near and can be accessible in a variety of ways (air, boat and yes, by land), many people from the Philippines haven't been there. For locals out there, I tell you, it is sooo easy.

You do not need a travel agent to arrange your trip for you. In fact, travel agents charge more than doing things yourself. All you need is timing and a little bit of searching.

You would think that going to Boracay by boat or by bringing your vehicle via RoRo (roll on, roll off) will save you a lot of money, you are dead wrong. There are a lot of airlines out there that offers budget rates that can save you a lot of time and money. I recently got my round trip ticket at Tiger Airways (operated by SeaAir) for only Php 699.00 per way all in!

What about hotels? We heard about cheap accommodations in Boracay. So, how cheap is cheap. Are you ready to sleep in cockroach infested fan rooms and pay premium or use that same money to get a descent air conditioned room near the beach? Check out the different online hotel booking service and get instant reservations:

What happens when you arrive? How would you get from Kalibo or Caticlan Airports to your hotel? Would you need someone to arrange land (bus or van) and boat transfers? Luckily, there's one reliable company that I know of wherein you can book and pay online. The rate is low that it's as if you have done the arrangement yourself. Check out South West Tours and know your options.

Try to arrange you trip and compare it to your local travel agent. I would be glad to know if I helped you with your plans by sharing you experiences on the comments field below.

0 Escape to Anawangin Cove (Zambales, The Philippines) Part 3

Anawangin Cove is the most popular, most visited and most maintained amongst its neighboring coves. It's also nearer to the town of Pundaquit so supplies like food and drinks are available yet a little bit pricey.

According to the boatmen, Anawangin Cove is owned by a local family who also lives in Pundaquit. They are also responsible for making the place well maintained and they have employed caretakers to make sure the shores is regularly cleaned.

There are many things to do in Anawangin, aside from getting your tan or sleeping under the pine trees. You can hike up the hills and view the ocean from afar or you can hike and follow the shallow stream at the back of the camp area.

Starting a fire was a challenge, luckily, one of my friends brought a lighter. I was so fun cooking and eating under the moonlight. We had a blast and we partied with only the music coming from a cellular phone! Did I mention that there's no cell phone signal at all?

Going to the beach will never be complete without getting wet. And I brought several swimsuits that I loaned to my friends. Don't hate us if we spent all morning just posing for the camera, every girl dreams of becoming a model, haha!

The camp area was well maintained by caretakers. Every camper must do their share in making sure to clean up after themselves and dispose their trash properly. Look at the camp, it was so clean and peaceful. A nice place to just forget all your troubles for a couple of days.

0 Escape to Anawangin Cove (Zambales, The Philippines) Part 2

Before going to the camp site (Anawangin Cove), it's better to visit the islands in the morning where the water is not as rough as in the afternoon.

The two islands, Camara and Capones can be seen when you board the boat from Pundaquit beach. Camara Island is the one closest from Pundaquit beach. Just like Capones, Camara is big lump of rock with very little soil and greenery. 

Capones island island is about 20 minutes boat ride away from Camara island and is a perfect place to have a 360 degrees view of the place via the light house.

0 Escape to Anawangin Cove (Zambales, The Philippines) Part 1

I really like the outdoors. And spending a couple of days away from the busy city is one way for me to recharge my batteries. If your idea of spending a weekend is to relax by the beach and sing around the campfire like me, then I bet you'll love Anawangin.

Last week, myself, my hubby and a couple of friends just decided to pack our bags and experience what Anawangin Cove has to offer.

View Anawangin Cove, Zambales in a larger map

There are several ways to get to Anawangin, one by car and the other by bus. There are several bus stations that caters to travelers, one of which is Victory Liner. Zambales is only 3 hours away from Manila, but Pundaquit beach (where you'll hire the boat to take you to Anawangin Cove) is about a couple of hours from Olongapo.

My hubby drove us to Subic via the North Luzon Expressway and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. We had our breakfast in Subic then drove us to Pundaquit passing the towns of Castillejos, San Marcelino and  San Antonio.

We have made arrangements the week before and we got a fairly good deal. For ten (10) persons or more, the package is only Php 500.00 per person! And that includes the tents (good for 3 persons), firewood, stove, lamps and cooler. All you have to do is bring blankets, food and lots of drinking water for an overnight stay.

The boat ride from the Pundaquit beach to Anawangin Cove is around 20 to 30 minutes, depending on water conditions. Always wear your life vest while you are at sea and remember to put on your sunblock (I used Beach Hut) before going on board the pump boat.

0 How to Get a Guy to Like You - From the Very First Date

There are 2 ways to understand how to get a guy to like you on your first date. The first way is to Ask Your Girlfriends, consult with your mother or aunt, or maybe read Cosmopolitan every week. The common thing about these sources - They all come from Women.

We women spend an amazing amount of time dissecting and analyzing every little aspect of relationships, men and life in general.

That, unfortunately, doesn't mean that we understand men better (than men).

The second way to know how to get a guy to want you is to Finally listen to what Men Are Saying... This may not be easy. We will hear things that we don't want to hear and we will have to accept things that may sound sexist and annoying. None the less - They will still be true!

If you ask your girlfriends or go through women's magazines, you will find that this is how to act on a first date:

1. Don't order pricy drinks or food.

2. Act like someone who will get along with his buddies

3. Don't wear anything too exposing and revealing and never use any curse words - so he knows he can introduce you to his mother.

4. Don't talk much and if possible don't talk at all - just listen.

I am sure you have heard this advice before, right?

While these tips can be good for some type of men, they are hardly the things that will affect his first impression of you (which of course is the most important one)

What's the Problem With Women-Tips for First Dates?

Most of the time, we women do not understand the purpose of a first date. We tend to focus on compatibility, attraction and how many relationship he had in his past. These are all important things, but not on a first date.

After a long research about how to get a guy to like you (and a lot on interrogation of the opposite sex), I have found these 3 simple rules to follow on your first date. They are all related to one thing: Concentrate on conveying your femininity.

Rule #1 - Wear a Dress

Men like women in dresses because dresses make you look soft, tender and it makes him want to cuddle you and protect you from the harms of the world.

Rule # 2 - Let Him Speak First

If you allow him to be the first one to speak on your first date will make him feel respected. Men like to feel respected even more than being loved. It's a fact of life and it is an ancient fact of life. It maybe annoying, but it's still true.

Rule #3 - Smile Often

Smiling at him often will simply make him feel attractive. It's so easy yet so true. Men want to feel attractive and this is an easy way to achieve that.

Follow these 3 simple rules and he will beg for a second date. Wait 2 more dates and then you can start to express yourself much more and let him know who you really are. By than he will be much more motivated to get to know you as a person.

0 How to Make a Perfect Grilled Chicken

Grilling can be a fun, family activity during weekends. Spend your lazy afternoons in your backyard, and take out those grillers for a grilled chicken for your dinner.

Learning how to grill is not as hard as you would see on television. All you need is the proper temperature for your griller especially if you are using an electric grill. Nevertheless, if you have the conventional griller, try to find some dried wood or charcoal. Ignite the coals or wood by placing crumpled papers below each coal and then set the papers on fire. Do not pour gasoline on the coals or dried wood. The smoke coming from the coals will give a gasoline-like aroma to your grilled meat. These are your best weapons in grilling.

Choose the best part of the chicken. I usually use chicken thighs and legs since they are the fattiest parts of the chicken. These parts will yield a juicy, barbecued chicken. Although these may sound unhealthy, the taste is incredibly delicious. Some would still prefer grilling chicken breasts with the skins on.

Before you start grilling your chicken, do not forget to marinate them at least overnight. Yes, overnight. This is because the longer you marinade your meat, the better absorption of flavors happens. I prefer to use store-bought marinades as these save much preparation time in the kitchen. The downside of most ready-made marinades is their high sodium content. But if you have time, you can make your own marinade from scratch. In the recipe below, the marinade and the chicken were simmered together to speed up the process of grilling and also to let the flavors marry together. I like Asian-style marinades such as this:

For every kilo of chicken:

½ cup light soy sauce (available in the Asian section of grocery stores)

2-3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice

4 tablespoons brown sugar

1 medium stalk of lemon grass (pounded)

3 cloves crushed garlic

1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)

Combine all the above ingredients in a heavy skillet and let it boil for two minutes. Add in the chicken and simmer for another five minutes. Drain the chicken in a colander and reserve the marinade for basting during grilling. Basting is necessary so that the chicken won’t dry out. The marinade can also be made as a sauce by making a basic roux. This is simply done by placing a tablespoon of butter on a non-stick pan and let it cook for minutes. Pour over the marinade and whisk until the sauce thickens. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings accordingly.

You can also opt to make a dry, rub marinade. This dry rub is comprised of herbs and spices and a little oil. For chicken, dried or fresh tarragon and rosemary blends together very well. If you want a spicier, grilled chicken, add a pinch of chili powder and cayenne pepper. There are limitless marinades for grilled chicken. A little imagination and creativity are the keys. Make sure that when grilling the chicken, never let the flame flare up. This will result in burnt chicken. This does not appeal both to the eyes and to the palate. If this occurs, sprinkle a little water over the flame. Some also like their grillers to be covered during the grilling process.

Personally, I liked mine uncovered. There is just something about the smoke which is, for me, the essence of grilling. Grilled foods are best served warm, right off the grill with some salads or other vegetables of your choice.

0 Paris: the city of love

Ah Paris, the city de l'amour. What better place to spend the Valentine weekend?

Who knows or cares how Paris's reputation as the City of Love came about; the fact is romance saturates the air. The city's architecture is beguiling, the gentle curve of The Seine, hypnotic. Perhaps it is because Parisians themselves seem so much more open in their gestures, unashamed about making public displays of affection. Well, when in Rome, as they say...

With flights from London airports to Charles De Gaulles starting at just £20.99 or the Eurostar from £69, it is a fantasy easily turned into reality. Plus there are some great deals to be had on hotel accommodation, saving you money for all of the city's many attractions.

If you're not too bothered about finding privacy and queueing during the daytime, then visit Paris's popular landmarks: Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame, the Champs Élysées and Montmartre to name but a few. Naturally, don't miss the irresistible Eiffel Tower from which you and your significant other can marvel at the 360 degree panoramic of Paris below, no doubt falling in love all over again at the sight.

Say the words 'café culture' to anyone and it instantly evokes images of Paris streets, chic women in sunglasses sipping coffee, engulfed by swirls of cigarette smoke, handsome Gallic men reading Le Monde making flirty eye contact, perched with effortless elegance on the stylish cafe furniture. Make a point of stopping for un café, s'ilvous plait and soaking up the atmosphere. Sit at separate tables and catch each other's eye provocatively, as if you're perfect strangers.

When evening comes, enjoy a romantic cruise along The Seine, taking in Paris by night or simply stroll along the streets, hand in hand. Stop for dinner at a little bistro and sample the recommended vins or feed each other spoonfuls of sumptuous dessert. You can do that in Paris without putting fellow diners off their grub.

The city of love may only be a couple of hours, away but it's guaranteed that you will remember your visit to Paris for a life time.

0 Ways to make your skin healthy

One of the most essential ways to protect your skin is to keep it away from the harmful rays of the sun. Ultraviolet radiation harms the skin as well as it can result to wrinkles, premature aging, age spots or even cancer as well. An individual should really get further preventative measures in order to be certain that his or her skin is not totally exposed under the harmful rays of the sun. Do not fail to remember that one should apply a natural sunscreen, or a moisturizer that includes sunscreen (with minimum of SPF 15) every day. Although, it does not mean that you should not go out at all during the day, as if you are like a nocturnal creature. Your skin also needs some sunlight every day. A 10 to 15 exposures at sunrise or sunset will be alright.

In addition to that, a variety of fine skin care products such as an all natural moisturizer is one of the essential components for a vigorous complexity. Keep on moisturizing all through the day to keep your sensitive skin vigorous. Your hands as well as your face is especially vulnerable to everyday dent, and might require it to be moisturized further.

0 Self Tanning Lotion Steps to Follow for a Perfect Tan

To get the perfect results using a self tanning lotion, there are a few steps that are a must-do. First and foremost, follow the directions closely, primarily because not all lotions are created equal. For example, some may be runnier than others and some may be tinted instead of the normal clear.

Every day more self tanning lotions are coming out and are being improved, such as those that contain bronzers to let you see where you’re putting the lotion on and natural fragrances to reduce the chemical smell from your skin cells reacting to DHA.

In addition, there are other steps that you need to follow to help to ensure that you get the proper color the first time, every time. These include:

• EXFOLIATION! This is in capital letters because this is the one main cardinal rules when you apply any sunless tanning product. At least 4 hours before your session, make sure that you exfoliate.

If you use a salt-based scrub, either do this one day prior to your tanning or use a quality cleanser after so that no oil remains on the surface of the skin.

• Next, you really should use gloves. Using gloves helps to prevent the orange palms syndrome. Make sure the gloves snugly fit over your hands otherwise you will have some trouble applying the tan evenly.

One particularly useful tip is that if you can’t get gloves, keep a warm mixture of bleach water next to you so that you can immediately clean your palms off afterwards.

• Another step that is extremely important is to apply the tanning solution section by section. Many experienced self tanners suggest starting at the legs and working up the body.

Applying the lotion in sections, especially small ones, will help to avoid missing areas and streaking as well as make the application process easier.

• At each section, after you apply the self tanning lotion, work it into the skin until it is completely absorbed. Don’t be vigorous at this, a gentle motion will do, you just want to make sure that you get the full benefit of the lotion.

• If you didn’t buy another tanning product specifically designed for your face, use what you are using on the body.

It’s a good idea though to mix a couple of dabs of regular lotion in with the tanning product to disperse the coloring more evenly.

• In addition, tanning lotions will tint your eyebrows and if they are tinted too much, they will look kind of funny. It has been recommended that you use a damp Q-tip on the eyebrows after you’ve applied the tan to remove any leftover lotion.

• Tan the back of your hands gently and make sure to sponge around the dry areas of your body, such as the soles of the feet, elbows and knees to remove any excess.

• And lastly, let yourself dry completely before you put your clothes on.

When you are applying a self tanning lotion, remember to follow the directions on the bottle. There are also though, other tips of the trade that will help to give you the best tan.
