A few weeks ago, I knew I need to get away from the city and have a complete breather before the school year starts. This is something I always do way back in college, you know, just a little escape to clear my head and possibly meditate on things that may come my way. Living in Davao means I have multiple choices on beaches just a boat away from the city and just my luck, Pearl Farm Beach Resort hosted a staycation.
On days when I feel like I’ve been stuck in the house for a while, I try my best to go out, catch up with my friends, see the outside world and work on my backlogs in a coffee shop. Sometimes, being in a place with a few friends and some random people surprisingly makes me productive. I don’t know, it’s just me. Here in Davao, a lot of coffee shop establishments are slowly rising and with a number of shops around the city, it’s a bit hard to find a place where there’s less people.
I’m a person who loves summer season and I’m not saying that because I grew up in a tropical country, I just love the Philippines extra warm sun. Usually, whenever summer is coming, I try my best to book a ticket months before to plan “Another Summer to Remember”. This time, I surprisingly stayed in the city and just enjoyed the things I usually do. I hang out with my friends, watch movies and restaurant hopping. I practically grew up in Davao and I know all the nooks and crannies of the city. But the weekly routine was wearing me off and the city got very overwhelming and repetitive for me. Don’t get me wrong, you can do a lot of things in Davao but my travel bug is biting me yet again hence my Davao Oriental trip.
Saved the best for last! Los Angeles a.k.a. City of Angels is the last leg of my American trip and what better way to end it? A tour in Universal Studios’ Hollywood specifically in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. *squeals* If you don’t know yet, I’m a huge Potterhead!
I have a love/hate relationship with Mondays. I love it because it’s the start of a new week and a new beginning. On the other hand, I hate it because for the most part, it’s the beginning of a 5 day work in school. But since it’s Summer, I spend most of my Sunday nights watching documentary movies on Netflix or Korean Dramas till dawn with a pint of ice cream by my side. One of the things why Mondays are Made even Better is Coffee Bean’s #MondaysMadeBetter Promo! Every Monday, Coffee Bean offers different Ice Blended beverage for only 100 Php until the first week of June. Now that’s something I can look forward to every Monday to jumpstart my week and fuel my caffeine cravings. Have a great week ahead!
