My 1st travel experience in Luzon

Somewhere in Sta. Rosa, Laguna
This counts as one of those nearly forgotten to do posts. I have had so many new experiences lately that I almost loss count or even getting stressed over being unable to share it through my blog. Though I was able to create a short quick post about travelling through my Travelling with the Libotero post.

Sampler food shot which I may never eat & find in cebu ~visit my food blog!
On my 1st travel, I stayed at Intercontinental Hotel though the help of sponsors (THANK YOU!).

across a polluted river
1st impression on the Ninoy Aquino International Airport was BIG! But on looking in the distant Horizon, I thought it was going to rain but I was immediately corrected that it was pollution. When arriving in Makati, I was really like a probinsyano almost-always-all-the-time looking up (I had never been surrounded with so many skyscrapers in my life!).

Serandra-BGC~Bonifacio Global City Area
We immediately went on with the tour, going through BGC - Bonifacio Global City to Laguna and nearing Sta. Rosa and Alabang Town Center. Along the road, I was still documenting whilst inside the Tour bus, taking pictures of extreme bad to opposite extreme good.

Another "NEW" thing that happen was that on the way to Manila, I travelled via PAL Economy and on the way back through Business class (AWESOME!!!~Mabawag kalipay!). Almost any NEW encounter was documented and just so happens I just found that footnotes I made and hence this delayed blog post.

Fly Overs / free ways
The bad side is of course, seeing the and smelling the pollution, air and water. Congestion is definitely the norm there. I did not like seeing the overlapping of Flyovers/free ways.

Travel Buddy for the 2nd visit - Mr. CEBU Tech Blogger dot com
On the 2nd time, exactly a week after the 1st travel escapade, another sponsor was there (THANK YOU AGAIN!) and that this time I stayed in The Peninsula Hotel.

Fish feeding in Sta. Rosa
The 2 trips was an overwhelming learning experience, having to see a different part of the country and also different exposure to culture and lifestyles. There are good areas and bad areas as well, what we can learn from both areas are areas of improvement for out Queen City of the South.

Makati Skies
What made these 2 trips unique is that I was able to see both the urban part of the Metro and also in another part of Luzon in which I did not expect to see lots of Green areas.

1st time riding a small Taxi boat in Nuvali
Images posted below are some of which I just took since they are not yet in Cebu:

Toll for vehicles
Interesting-Beautiful Architecture
There is this dedicated Jeepney Stop lane which I found quite interesting aside from the Air conditioned Jeepney
I would like to thank CTown, Libotero, Aethen, Janette Toral, Cebu Tech Blogger, for the company during my short time there and also to the SPONSORS (You know who you are?!)

Can't wait to TRAVEL AGAIN! (Looking for more Pics related to this? Click HeRe)
