Short but sweet getaway to Bintan (Where to go and what to do)
I went to Indonesia particularly to the island of Bintan as part of my training for my new job. I am not that excited about the trip because my colleagues told me that the place is so secluded and boring. For the first few days on the island, I was totally bored – no nightlife, no places to go, no malls and there are very few places to eat. Imagine being stuck in your capsule (a cute little room where I stay) without any activity as if you are a prisoner? Boring, right?!
This year’s gathering, the best for me so far, was bigger and grander, as it was held at the City of Dreams Manila. Highly esteemed speakers and panelists graced the event. Most of them are well known veterans in blogging and the digital industry. Celebrities and social media influencers also shared some of the secrets to the popularity they’re enjoying today.

From there we provided news to our community and province mates. We were grateful for the acceptance, support and follows by the community. We grew with them. Because of them.
Natividad in Pangasinan is one of the underrated towns/destinations located in the eastern part of the province.

When we first went to Cagayan for the Cagayan Food Crawl, all we are seeing was panciterias that offer Pansit Batil Patong – a local Cagayan noodle dish. So, we thought that Cagayan Food Crawl will be a battle of Panciteria. But, we are surprised when different restaurants confirm and reaching out to be part of Cagayan Food Crawl.
Here is the 2nd list of the must try restaurants in Tuguegarao.
After the success of Pangasinan Food Crawl, Norte Bloggers immediately organized a version of it in Cagayan that aims not only to discover foods and restaurant in Cagayan but to help in promoting the local food industry in the province.

San Fernando City Pampanga is popularly known as the Christmas Capital of the Philippines because of the handcrafted and colorful giant lanterns that are gloriously displayed during the holidays. But aside from this, San Fernando City is also a cultural heritage city where preserved old houses and the San Fernando Railway station can be found.
One thing admirable about the Cordillera people is how they preserve their culture and heritage, and their passion in supporting local artists. This can be testified by the museums and villages that showcase their rich culture and heritage as well as events that promote local Cordilleran artistry. Not like on other parts of the country, Cordillerans still perform their rituals and traditions, and continues to wear their traditional clothing.
Ilocos region is blessed not only with natural wonders but also with a rich culture, history, and heritage. The provinces of the region are known for their heritage sites that are recognized by UNESCO, making them popular provinces in the country.
The province of Cagayan nestles at the northeastern tip of Luzon, occupying the lower basin of the Cagayan River. Cagayan is blessed with beautiful destinations making the province as one of the most visited provinces in the region.
