We Prayed for an Honest Kalesa Driver and We Really Got One!

Intramuros Kalesa Ride 16-min

If you Google riding kalesas in Manila, you’ll be put off by the number of stories you’ll read about kutseros (kalesa drivers) cheating passengers. But I really wanted Luke to experience riding one, so we decided to go anyway. Mor and I just seriously kept on praying that we’ll meet an honest kutsero who won’t cheat us.

And God sometimes has funny ways of answering our prayers!

On Cancelled Trips and Undeserved Surprises

Cancelled Disneyland 1-min

It was supposed to be Luke’s first time to ride a plane, first international trip and first visit to Disneyland. It was also my birthday weekend. If you follow us on our Instagram stories, you’ll see how Luke has been talking non-stop about meeting Mickey. It’s definitely a big deal.

Allow me to take you on a virtual tour as I share with you the concept of the room, the different inspirations behind it and some tips in case you’re planning to create a similar space. Hope you like it!

Celebrating Mother’s Day at Acacia Hotel (Philippines)

Acacia Hotel Manila Review

We absolutely love staycations, as you can probably tell by now, but no one looks forward to them more than Luke! Sometimes, he would even include that in his prayers (“Thank you God for hotels…”)

So you can just imagine his face when I told him we were invited to stay at Acacia Hotel Manila for Mother’s Day! (Hint: It looked pretty similar to his face in the photo above!)
