Why I fell in love with Siargao Island

Caramielrush by Miel Laquindanum

I don’t know about you, but as cliché as it sounds I experienced a “Love at first sight” with Siargao the moment I stepped foot on the Island. With its palm trees and sea breeze? Any beach baby like me couldn’t ask for more other than a coconut water in my hands and lots of sunscreen to slather in my body. I know you’ll probably get sick of me repeating the word “Siargao” in this post but seriously, I can’t help it! I always have had high expectations with the said Island even before it was a hit on our Instagram feeds. And to tell you honestly, Siargao did not disappoint! Continue Reading


Youngstown New York: Old Fort Niagara

Old Fort Niagara by Miel Laquindanum

Quick history trivia! The history of Old Fort Niagara spans more than 300 years. During the colonial wars in North America a fort at the mouth of the Niagara River was vital, for it controlled access to the Great Lakes and the westward route to the heartland of the continent.

VLOG: Wild water tubing experience

Maybe I should explore more of what my city has to offer! Continue Reading


The Majestic Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls by Miel Laquindanum

Never in my mind my Mom would insert this day tour of the Niagara Falls (America border) in our itinerary. Basically, we made a 3 day tour on this part of the state since my Aunt suggested we should see other cities while in America. She didn’t want us to stay that long in New York City for some reason – she said it can be toxic and overwhelming. And it was half true! Since we are just 6 hours away from the Majestic Falls, why not see and experience it for ourselves? By the way, my Mom was really giddy on riding the boat near the falls.
