I have always been curious of China and its culture. I didn’t want to travel to China at first because I needed to apply for a tourist visa but I just went for it because I didn’t know where else to travel plus I really wanted to visit the Great Wall of China. I also wanted to go to Bali instead but my body’s deffff not Bali-ready so we just booked tickets for a week’s stay in China. Here are the places that we were able to see on our three day stay in Beijing!

Last Friday, I found out that I was driving with an expired license. Good thing I checked my license or else I would’ve still been driving with an expired license up until now. That same afternoon, I hurriedly went to SM City Cebu to have my license renewed. I had a good experience the last time I renewed my license there because I did it in less than an hour. This time, I got more lucky because I did it in 30 minutes. 😀
We only stayed two full days in Coron so we had to choose from one of these tours. We already toured around the beautiful sights of Coron Island on our first day and we wanted to try and see what Palawan beaches are made of so we chose the Island Escapade Tour.

The best part about visiting Palawan (El Nido and Coron) is that their tours are already organized into groups, depending on the sights that you want to visit. You can just choose which tour you want and you can already see a lot of sights in one day.
I rarely write reviews about the hotels that we stayed in (maybe because they’re mostly just budget hotels lol) but The Funny Lion is definitely an exception! I felt that I needed to write about our experience here because we actually didn’t want to leave the hotel. lol
The check-in was a breeze. Their lobby was un-airconditioned and open, and it was just so refreshing to see such a sight. Nice hotels usually have airconditioned and high ceiling lobbies but The Funny Lion’s lobby was quite unique. Sorry, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I only go there to connect to the wifi. lol (P.S. Their wifi is quite bad and there was no LTE signal inside our room.)
The hotel has two buildings, and this one is facing the pool. Our room was on the lower left side of the building in the photo below so it was really cool to have the pool just outside our room.
I played at the PFDA Ultimate Frisbee Nationals last May in Bacolod and an ultimate frisbee tournament always comes with a side trip. Right when we landed, we went straight to The Ruins. We rode a taxi to bring us to the Ruins and we paid Php 140 each for the taxi. There were 5 of us. The taxi driver just waited for us for an hour and dropped us off at our hotel after.

We toured around downtown Taipei on our last full day in Taiwan. As usual, we woke up late. lol Of course, I had to do a mirror shot before we went out of our apartment. lol
