We only have a month before the wedding and I am really excited! ☺ We were not able to share our (mis)edgeventures recently as we were quite busy with the wedding (and family life) planning for the last few months. We're also done with our prenup photoshoot. I never thought it would be that tiring (haha ☺). I can't wait to get hold of our prenup album! ☺ We're still working on a few details for the venue, but we'll surely share more about our travels soon. ☺ ♥ Gel ♥ ♥♥♥ Edward and Gel ♥♥♥... read more

It was just another regular day at work for me, until he called and told me to go downstairs as he was waiting for me to have lunch with him. How random! He brought me to one of our favorite restaurants in Clark, House of Chops. ☺ We ordered Slow Roasted Beef Belly with Peppercorn Gravy, Cheesy Broccoli Rice and Parmesan Creamed Corn and Spinach. One word: delectable! Happy tummy indeed! ☺☺☺ ♥ Gel ♥ ♥♥♥ Edward and Gel ♥♥♥... read more

Hi ☺ This was supposed to be posted days ago. However, wedding preps and work took most of our time for the past few days. Anyway, here's the account of our mini field trip on 18 July, 2016. We were feeling a bit lazy and wanted a leisurely stroll through the freeport zone. We didn't want to go to the Parade Grounds as we wanted a place that's more private (although we'd surely go for the free Wi-Fi there haha ☺). We first thought of going back to Green Canyon Eco Art Resort, but was dissuaded by the PhP 500 environmental fee per person (that's consumable at the hotel's Palette Restaurant). We didn't want to spend that much that day as we were saving for something else. And so we settled with Picnic Grounds. We got ... read more

My fiancée surely loves taking photos, but dislikes the idea of tinkering with a camera. So, I got her an action camera and she was ecstatic! We tried it recently on a road trip just around the freeport zone. And I bet she had a blast. ♥ We're posting pictures soon! ♥ Edward ♥ ♥♥♥ Edward and Gel ♥♥♥... read more

To narrow down my bucketlist in finishing off my Extreme Adventure commitments, I went to Magalang Pampanga to experience their Ultralight Plane, I went to the safest and famous agency that offers this and it is in the ANGELES FLYING CLUB. Their Introductory Flight only costs 1,650 Philippine Pesos and "with a twenty minute absolute feel of being above the World, just like Superman floating in the air, 1,000 Feet above, colliding your body through the wind and overseeing everything that GOD had created for us, it just feels like Heaven…" Now, I could fully understand what the privilege of Birds and Eagles have… Ultralight Flying is a better encounter compared to Commercial Planes because it is open, you could actually feel the wind bumping into your face. Having to do this in an Extreme ... read more

Morning is arriving, and large clouds – remnants of the previous day’s constant rains – are hovering above the Clark Freeport Zone, about an hour and a half north of Manila. Gradually, the clouds give way to sun rising from the horizon punctuated by Mount Arayat. Crowds who have sacrificed sleep to be at the grounds at the crack of dawn are greeted with the good news – weather reports have forecasted a nice, albeit cloudy, day. With good visibility, the weekend schedule for this year’s Hot Air Balloon Fiesta goes on as planned. Now on its 18th year, the festival – dotted with hot air balloons from participants all over the world, fairs from various aviation schools from the Philippines, and a host of other shows both related and not to flying – perhaps best ... read more

The trip started with 4x4 drive to a base station. Not Mazda Tribute drive to Wheatsheaf, but a bone jarring, butter churning experience that nearly caused an eruption of my own which would not have been pleasant for anyone complete with sulphurous gases, albeit hydrogen sulphide not sulphur dioxide as one might expect wth a volcanic eruption. I did get a sense though of what 4x4 enthusiasts get out of the 'sport' - by the return trip though - I was completely over it. The first thing that struck me was the terrain - almost lunar if you ignore the luh tropical growth at the top. The amount of lahar that reamins after the lasst eruption (1991 I think) is truly amazing. Having said that - I was told that it's a common misconception that a ... read more

Since I was a child, I've heard plenty of appreciation of the country’s one and only Hot Air Balloon Fiesta being held every month of February in Clark Field, Angeles City, Pampanga. So when I had a chance on February 14 of 2010, I grabbed the opportunity, packed my things up and headed north to experience the show in the air. I really thought I would go there alone so I was a little nervous because that was my first time to visit the place. Thankfully, one of my colleagues decided to go with me so it was a relief. We started our trip as early as 3 in the morning. I was still sluggish as we walked going to the bus terminal in Cubao, a busy district of Quezon City. The first bus to depart ... read more
