       Starbucks Planner 2012

The year is about to end but I have my sights already stretched out to the last quarter of 2012. I have never plotted schedules for vacations and to-do things in advance. I’m always the last minute jetsetter. For some reason, my brain functions more when I know I have shorter time left before an actual event – for some instances, at least.

Inside Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) 3.

What to Love?

When most passengers have boarded their respective planes or gone home, NAIA Terminal 3 in Parañaque, Metro Manila can become cozy and peaceful. It’s the time of the day when one can appreciate the architecture of the terminal if you don’t mind staying behind a little late inside the airport.

The Vigan Cathedral otherwise known as St. Paul Metropolitan Cathedral

This Baroque-style church was built in 1874 but is not in its original form as the earliest version of this edifice came about as early as 1574 by orders of Juan de Salcedo.

What to Love?

The church is located right across the famous Plaza Burgos, which is surrounded by fastfood chains. If you crave for a cuppa joe, a cozy coffee shop wouldn’t be too hard to miss. The fact that it is just a distance away from Calle Crisologo, makes it extremely tourist friendly! Walking around the main district of Vigan is easy even for first-time visitors.

Jack there’s a boat! A sunset image of Laguna de Bay.

What to Love?

If you enjoy street food such as fishballs, siomai, a bottle of local cola and such, Laguna de Bay is the perfect spot to do just that. It is not too far away from the Metro and yet, offers a modern twist of a laid back suburban living - that makes one proud to be a Filipino. A bonus to this view is the nearby childhood home of a National Hero - Jose Rizal. The place is open for visitors up to 5 PM.
