The Day the Eagle Went Bald – An Adventure for the Ladies

Ever wondered about going bare down under? Has it ever crossed your minds to know what it feels like to go back to the days when everything was still simple, uncomplicated and hairless?

Girlfriends, you know what I’m talking about!

Well, recently, a friend of mine just went for a Brazilian treatment from Lay Bare waxing salon and I swear on my Deuter backpack and fave green headlamp that the friend I’m talking about is not me. Anyway, right after my friend’s treatment, she immediately went to see me – all glowing and smiling. My low tolerance for pain friend had just gone through her personal war, a treatment which involved eradicating ALL adolescent hair from the ladies region. It involves a lot of waxing and some plucking here and there. She told me it wasn’t as painful as she thought it was and I felt so happy for her because she was really nervous right before the treatment.

Did that make you curious? Me too, but I’m not ready to go and spread my wings to a stranger just to go bare down under. I think I’ll try the underarm waxing though.

Check their website for a full list of services and prices:

Still not convinced? Check out their testimonials. Most of them are quite funny.

“Thank you Lay Bare! The lady is now a baby.”

“The vain must not complain.”

“I made it through the wilderness.”

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew

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…

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. 

ANGELITOS (Orani)
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…

Footwear should enhance your experience outdoors and protect you from injury. There are shoes designed specifically for hiking but I encourage you to research the mountain  first before purchasing hiking shoes. Will there be sections where you need to cross rivers? 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…
