My First Spring Experience

leave a comment »


It was Summer (PH time) when I left the country. 4th of May 2017 via China Southern Airlines bound to Guangzhou, China then my destination – Los Angeles, California. 

That was the longest flight I’ve been to. Been awake for 19hrs the entire flight. The nervousness fade the moment I step out of the airport and greet my Aunt who fetched me. Then reality sinks in, I’m here! Kim K and I are breathing the same polluted air. (HAHAHA) 


Welcome to United States of America!

I went there to attend my cousin; my sister I never had; my frenemy’s (is there really such a term? Hahaha) graduation which happened on the 6th of May.

For 7 years and 7 months of talking through Viber, Messenger, Instagram and whatever means of communications this techy world now have, we finally got to see each other AGAIN. 🤜🏻🤛🏻

I stayed there for over a month so might as well enjoy every moment. Yay? I got a chance to visit 4 states. (Thank God, school’s over she have all the time to take me to places.) 

1st state – CALIFORNIA!


@ Santa Monica Pier


@Downtown LA


@Universal Studios, Hollywood


@Balboa Park, San Diego 


@Old Town, San Diego


@USS Midway Museum, San Diego


@Coronado, California


@Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, San Diego


@Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills


@LACMA (Been dreaming to see this! It happened everyone! It really did!!)


@Hollywood Blvd


@Disneyland, Hollywood

Next state, NEVADA!!


@Las Vegas, NV


@Seven Magic Mountains, NV



@The Strip


@Fremont (We tried their Slotzilla!!!)


@Valley of Fire State Park

Third state, ARIZONA


@Hoover Dam

Been to 2 states at the same time. Arizona and Nevada! Different time zones!!! Cool right? 


@Horse Shoe Bend, Arizona


@Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Remember those wallpapers at your Microsoft computers? Yes yes yes! Amazing!

Last state, UTAH


@Zion National Park, UT

The only place I got to see in this beautiful state. 

I can’t post all the pictures and videos  I took for a month long stay but as you can see, It was FUN and EXPENSIVE at the same time. Hahaha.

Till my next #happydaysofrinalynfaye

Spontaneous January 2013

leave a comment »

“Let’s go to the beach!’ A friend told me. I didn’t think twice. I asked him when and with whom. He told me, Saturday, January 19, 2013 at Batangas. He told me their plans like overnight, beers, sunset, riding jet-ski and take note – unlimited ride it is! Though I confirmed that I’ll be going without even telling me their plans who would dare to say no? We are talking about beach here! It’s my weakness. I’m a beach bum. I wouldn’t say no!

5AM at Buendia in Taft we met. Went to Shell in Magallanes to wait for others then were off to Southwoods in Laguna to fetch the others. And few hours from there, hello beach!

The moment I saw the place, I was happy – I really am. For some time I forgot the worries I have that time. Thanks to you Wesley, you’re a big help. And another thing, I just the found the perfect location for my dream beach wedding here in Punto Miguel Lakeshore in Batangas.

I got the chance to meet a variety of people. They are all amazing and fun to be with and take note – they have plans and when I say plans it’s a long term plans which awaken my mind to think the same.

While waiting for that fascinating sunset in Batangas, we took a lot of pictures together.

Dinner is served. Dinner at the beach. Bonfire to make us warm. Truth or dare for a fun night. Beers to get along and unlimited stories to share. That night was a blast.

That weekend is about to end and we all need to leave might as well take that one last photo.

Since Tagaytay is near Batangas, we went there to indulge and satisfy the hunger we are feeling at that moment. Ate lunch at Leslie’s. The view was awesome as usual. The food was mouth watering.

This trip was wall of a sudden. The people I’m with are all awesome. Take a chance to meet new people, explore places and have one helluva night!

Summer Fun in Palawan 2013

I am such a fan of sunsets and I’ll start this blog post of mine with that breath taking sunset in El Nido, Palawan, Philippines where I spent my weekend with the people I treasure and love the most – my family!

IMG_9822

Last Saturday, April 20, 2013, I together with my mom and 2 younger brothers went to Palawan to unwind. We wanted a new place to go and spent summer and Palawan is the first thing that comes to mind.

Our scheduled flight was supposed to be at 5:40AM with some problems incurred by our plane, our flight was delayed for almost 2 hours. An hour plane ride from Manila to Puerto Princesa City in Palawan. 5 hours van travel to El Nido – our destination.

IMG_9840

12 noon we are still on the road and we haven’t eaten anything yet. The van driver took off at Roxas for a stop over  to eat at the restaurant. The restaurant has that appealing view of the deck as shown in the picture. Perfect or events as I can see.

Finally! We arrived at La Casa Teresa Resort in El Nido at almost 3 in the afternoon. It was indeed a tiring trip that consumed one whole day.

Those 2 photos was taken by my brother while walking down the shore and waiting or the sun to set. We were lucky enough enough to spent our days at La Casa Teresa Resort, the sunset there is WOW! Need I say more? I guess you all know what I mean.

Welcome to the islands of Palawan! Mabuhay! Day 2 is our Island Hopping day. We have 5 islands to visit composed most especially of lagoons.

First stop – Secret Lagoon!

Second stop – Shimizu Island. We had our lunch here. Grilled fish, chicken and fruits on our table made with love by our tour guides.

Those 4 photos above was taken at our 3rd stop – Big Lagoon. I love the place so much. I don’t even want to go home and leave the place. I want to take more pictures but the camera has given up so for the 2 next destination I don’t have pictures anymore. But I can guarantee you that the place is really beautiful.

4th stop is the Small Lagoon where we spent almost an hour just swimming.

5th and final stop is the Seven Commando. An island, a long beach as I believe with white sands and clear blue water.

I’ll end this post with a picture of us and a poem I wrote on my ipod’s note while we are on our 5 hour land travel. This is written in Filipino by the way.

PALAWAN, ISA KANG LARAWAN
NG TUNAY NA KAGANDAHAN
ANG DAGAT MONG BUGHAW
PUSO KO’Y IYONG PINUKAW
SA LUNTIAN MONG KULAY
BINIGHANI MO AKONG TUNAY

EL NIDO, AKO’Y NAGSUSUMAMO
PAKINGGAN MO ANG DAING KO
SA 5 ORAS NA PAGKAKAUPO
HIMALA AKO’Y PINAGOD MO
SA BAWAT DAGAT NA MAKITA
AKALA KO IKA’Y MALAPIT NA

DERETSO AT KURBADA
PATAAS AT PABABA
SEMENTADO AT HINDI
WALA KANG PINILI

AKO’Y NAPANGANGA NUNG NAKITA NA KITA
“LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” KUMBAGA
SA GANDA MONG TAGLAY
AKO’Y NAPAHIYA
SULIT ANG PAGOD
PERO ALAM NATIN PAREHO NA KULANG ANG ORAS NATING DALWA
WAG KA MAG-ALALA
MAY SUSUNOD PA
HANGGANG SA SUNOD NATING PAGKIKITA!

If you love to be on the beach like me, my country, the Philippines has a wide choices of beaches. Don’t think twice. Buy a ticket. Book a plane. Most especially HAVE FUN!

The whole set of photos have been uploaded on my facebook account. Just make sure you are on my friends list because it has been set to private but I am willing to set it to public if you say so and for a limited time only. Thank you.
