Bangkong Kahoy Valley: The Beauty In-between

Appreciating the beauty of the two mystical mountains - Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal - right in the middle of them, the beautiful and peaceful valley of Bangkong Kahoy in Dolores, Quezon possesses a unique fusion of the two mountains and served as our sweet hideout from the busy metropolis a few weeks back for the first Organic Bloggers Gathering for the year 2014.

Three hours away from Manila, Bangkong Kahoy Valley is nestled at the adjoining arms of two mountains offering a 56-hectare well-kept private land inside the Mt. Banahaw Protected Area. Owned by the family of Mr. Dionisio "Dion" Pulan since 1920, Bangkong Kahoy Valley has been considered as one- if not the greatest - treasure by the family providing tranquility and relief to each and everyone of them.

The whole lot, I must say, looks really well kept. With some transient houses that guests can rent out for a night, a week or even a month, Bangkong Kahoy caters to students who are there to discover the wonders of Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal, to families and barkadas who seek refuge from the crazy metro life, up to the farmers who wanna know the latest invention and discoveries in organic farming.

Tune Hotels opens its Ortigas branch

As Tune Hotels continues to spread out like mushrooms in different parts of the world, offering affordable yet cozy accommodation to everyone, here in Manila, they recently opened their latest branch right at the very heart of Ortigas Business Center.

If I'm not mistaken, it was in Kuala Lumpur when I first heard of Tune Hotels. Though, I didn't really have that chance to try it out, here in Ortigas, I had my moment to see the whole lot and just know what's in store to anybody who will avail of their services and accommodation.

Tune Hotels Ortigas is located along Shaw Boulevard, a stone-throw away from One San Miguel building and probably 10-minute walk from MRT Shaw Station. It has this radiant and recognizable colors that is hard to miss. And yes, just like any other Tune Hotels in the world, it offers nothing but straight-forward, simple yet a hint of sophisticated service that anyone could enjoy.

A Surprise Visit in Baguio’s Easter Weaving Room

Aside from its inviting tourist spots and sumptuous dishes, Cordillera or specifically Baguio City is also a haven for arts and crafts materials that are just prominent whenever you see them. From the small trinkets to carved woods and hand-woven fabrics, Baguio City shares that most overwhelming talent of the people from the mountain.

And as I pay a visit to this lovely city again, I finally had a chance to see up-close the magic behind the wonderful fabrics of Cordillera through the centenarian store called Easter Weaving Room.

Easter Weaving Room is located on the Easter Road Guisad and is currently owned and managed by Philippine Episcopal Church, who has a great financial contribution to the work of Easter School and its church.
