Red Corner Gym Operates Until 12AM + Offers Discounts to Students!

Some time ago, I met with my good friend Jules and she looked really blooming at that time. I asked her what’s the buzz and she said she was taking boxing classes in Red Corner (that nice gym located in the 5F of Holiday Inn). She also told me boxing was really enjoyable plus there were tons of great looking guys… Wow.. sweating with the gym guys sounds so pleasant hahahaha…I have been intrigued with Red Corner Gym since then. I was curious because this is one of the few gyms in the country that is pro to alternative ways of getting fit. Who likes working out with gym equipment all the time?! It can get boring after some time. Well, for me at least…

A few months ago, I finally went to Red Corner to check out their facilities and inquired….

And guess what?!

Red Corner is offering discounts to students –yes to’s too bad, I’m not a student anymore but who knows, I may get lucky one day and get a free work out (ahem ahem..Red Corner people! Bwahahaha!)

The mechanics of the student promo goes like this – You will need to present a valid school ID, fill up some forms and pay only 999 pesos a month! You will have to remain a member for at least 3 months…That’s such a huge bargain for a gym that is catering to the “can afford” market or shall I say A or B market. For more details, please contact Red Corner directly (I’m not a salesperson nor is this a paid ad) or visit their gym for a free tour

They also have promos for groups – if you can form a group of ten and convince them to work out their lazy asses, you can very well get a discount.

Part 2 : Bataan Adventures | Where to Eat in Bataan (Updated 2017)

Being an avid hiker and foodie, I've grown very fond of visiting  Bataan.  This province offers several hiking trails (check my post here) passing verdant forests and nicely decorated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a proper cup of coffee and affordable comfort food. It is also highly accessible from Manila via land travel, making it a good option for a short but rewarding out of town adventure. 

Here's a list of restaurants in Bataan where you can enjoy satisfying meals. 

The restaurant's name which means little angels (male) was inspired by the owner's 3 young boys, Miguel (after St. Michael), Rafael and Gabriel.This 2 year old family owned restaurant has a homey ambiance and serves any type of food that the family enjoys.

Dishes are flavorful and priced affordably -100 Pesos above for the main dishes and 20 Pesos above for the desserts.Specialty includes, pork binagoongan and creamy tofu (my fave!). The restroom which has a mini garden is als…

How long will you be hiking?If the mountain has a clear and established trail that normally won't take more than 4 hours to complete, you can very w…

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew [Updated February 2019]

To kickoff 2017, I  returned to the Cordillera region with one of my closest friends, Jules. We wanted to take it easy  so we decided to try a couple of short but very scenic trails in Benguet I found online (References posted below). 

Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad,the capital of the province of Benguet  is less than an hour from Baguio city and features several accessible, scenic mountain trails - Mt. Yangbew (also known as Mt. Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly. :P
Since we were taking a super early bus ride,  (1:30 AM early! :P), we made sure  we got nice, comfy seats. Fortunately, with 3 days prior to the trip, we were able to book online via iWantSeats.

In five hours, we arrived in the City of Pines and walked towards Session Road to hunt for a hotel. Fortunately, a vacant room was immediately available at Benguet Prime Hotel so we were able to leave our bags.  We took our sweet t…
