Lazada : Convenient Shopping Haven for People on the Go

As most of my free time’s filled with food and hiking trips, the willpower to hop to the nearest shopping mall for what I need often eludes me.  

I’ve had great experience buying from other online sites so I find myself visiting a couple of those every now and then for convenience sake.  But I don’t just buy from any site, I only purchase from those  with awesome referrals from people I trust. One of those, which a male colleague has developed a fanatical appreciation on is Lazada, a Philippine online shopping mall.  A busy working dad turned energetic shopper, now that's something! 

I can see why he's so amused with it. Their site doesn’t require a lot of brain cells to navigate. Most of the information you require can be found on the upper portion and several other FAQ’s on the lower left part of the home page.  Apart from the distracting BDO Installment scheme on the right side, the site is clean and pretty straightforward. 

On the left portion, you will find 14 product categories including Lazada High Street which contains featured products to give you some shopping ideas. I often find myself browsing the Women’s clothes and Women's shoes section, however, the most interesting for me at the moment is the travel & luggage category . I've got my eye on this National Geographic pouch where I can put my camera and other accessories. It's shabby chic. Look what I found! :)

I adore the design inside. It's so simple. :)

Scoring good finds is only a click away with a variety of payment schemes available. You can pay cash on delivery, via Visa or Mastercard or pay installment through  BDO credit card with a minimum purchase of 3,000 Pesos. 

Below’s several other helpful information about Lazada straight off their website.

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…

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…

1.  Footwear
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…
