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. And that’s just the top of the iceberg. I wish I’d like to elaborate more of its history but I fell asleep half through the discussion becuase I woke up pretty early that day. Lol Continue Reading

VLOG: Wild water tubing experience

Wild Water Tubing in Davao by Caramielrush of Miel laquindanum

After weeks of stressing out on certain things I immediately said Yes to my friends invite last week and never really thought of what I am getting into. She just asked me if I was free and the rest was history. I never knew this activity existed, heck, I never knew there was one in Davao that started years ago. 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.

Always Laidback

Davao Fashion Blogger

I have been living in the province all my life – and loving it. The calm urban city of Davao has always been a safe haven, for me atleast. With that, it reflected on how my look goes through the day. Personally, I can’t put my finger on it on what category I fall when it comes to “fashion”. I guess it’s safe to say that I am Always Laidback. Continue Reading

A Day in Atlantic City

Left busy New York and headed to sunny Atlantic City for a day and  played a little bit in the casino (p.s. noob here)  and tried a lot of foods there with my Mom, Aunt and Cousin. Basically, Atlantic City is the Las Vegas of New Jersey since it’s known for its many casinos. Another attracion in this city are the wide beaches and iconic board walks you can see from the other side of Taj Mahal. Basically chilled the whole day in the city admiring the place while comparing it to Philippine Casinos and enjoying our cold beer while gazing through different buildings riding a Jitney from one place to another. Talking about life lessons.  It was a great day indeed. Continue Reading
