Corregidor Travel Diary: The Rock Beach Club at the South Dock, Spanish Lighthouse, Gen. Douglas MacArthur Statue, Gen Jonathan Wainwright Memorial

People close to me, knows I love history, especially anything relating about World War II or military stories. I have discovered this fondness for history and the world wars when I was little, I picked and read from our ancestral house’s library, one photo book that depicts World War II. From then on, I got more and more curious about anything about military and warfare; that I read and watched all things relating to it as much as I could. I was very fascinated that it got to a point where I wanted to be a military nurse while I was studying nursing in college. But my height didn’t cut it, so that plan was ditched.




The Philippines is a country that had a major role during that time in our history because of our relations with the United States and also our ardor for democracy. And there are so many places here that are filled with stories that are linked to World War II. Corregidor is one of them. Corregidor is an island that can be found at the entrance of Manila Bay in the Philippines. Due to its very strategic location, it served as a naval defense station since the Spanish Era. It is 48 kilometers away from Manila and is shaped like a tadpole.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Viewing Party by Sky Cable, HBO Asia and Johnnie Walker

We’ve heard the Northerners say “winter is coming” for the last 7 seasons of Game of Thrones and now Winter has finally arrived in Westeros! After two years of waiting after the last episode of season 7, the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones is at long last here! I know just like me, fans all over the world have waited for this day to come with both eagerness and dread in their hearts. As we all are excited to finally see this epic made-for-TV-movie come to fruition but also wishing it could have lasted longer than season 8.





The wait is over and the “watch has ended” for the fans of the Emmy-winning fantasy series "Game of Thrones" as the much-awaited premiere episode of the final season airs on April 15 (Monday) on HBO and its online streaming service HBO GO. I have been one of the lucky few to get invited to the Exclusive Viewing Party of GOT’s S08 E01 at the Johhny Walker House in Poblacion Makati that was put together by Sky Cable and Sky Broadband; HBO Asia and Johnnie Walker Philippines.

Sky Cable Brings HBO's Game Of Thrones-inspired “Fire Or Ice: A Musical Spectacle On Ice”

Ahhhh, Game of Thrones… it's been a fantastic 8 years, but you know what they say; all good things must come to an end. I’ve been following this epic TV series since 2011 and I’m having mixed emotions with the thought that it will be ending soon. I’m excited that the first episode of the last season is just a few days away, but I’m also sad that this is the last and final season. I wish it could run longer, but it’s all beyond our control.




I don’t think there will another TV series in the near future that will top up Game of Thrones when it comes to story, casting and most especially the computer effects and production. It’s out of this world if you ask me. George R. R. Martin said when everyone has left Westeros, he will still linger in that world. And I know for sure many of us fans will be the same. I will likely watch it again and again in the years to come, at least once a year or every other year just like what I did with Band of Brothers.

4 Reasons You Must Have Travel Insurance

Traveling is always so delightful. Even people who don’t like to travel would definitely want to do so with good company. Irrespective of whether we like to travel or not, each one of us has to pack. How many times do you pack and repack? There’s always that extra scarf that you can do without and still you try to pack as much as you can. But there’s one thing that you must definitely have on your travels and that is travel insurance.




Here are a few reasons why you absolutely must have travel insurance.
1. Reimbursement for your vacation investment
If you’ve planned a big trip then it’s obvious that you’ll have made the arrangements beforehand. Are you going on a cruise? You must have already made the cruise and travel bookings. Now imagine if you can’t go because of an emergency. You’ll have to cancel and if you cancel you won’t get your money back. Most bookings can’t be canceled within 14 days of departure. You’ll be left with a hole in your pocket and a world of disappointment. You must buy travel insurance before setting out. Travel insurance which has trip cancellation benefits insures you against these cancellations. You get reimbursed for prepaid and nonrefundable costs.

What's The Perfect Kind of Hair Extensions?

Have you ever envied a celebrity’s gorgeous full locks? You really shouldn’t. And I guess with the proliferation of social media, we know all too well by now that they are probably extensions. How do you think celebs go from a lob to mermaid hair overnight by the time they hit the next carpet.




These celebs are human, just like you and me. They don’t have super genes that can make their hair row their super-fast. They and their styling team would usually turn to extensions to switch up their length whenever they feel like changing their look. Fortunately, hair extensions aren’t just for the red carpet or major events anymore. You can now easily achieve your own mane transformation with a little help from your own glossy set of hair extensions.
