I love Baler

Long Weekend is often so we decided with my travel buddies to go to Baler. And since we visit Baler for the first time. We decided to look for a package that is good in budgeted at talaga namang swak na swak sa aming bulsa.

Thank God as I searched in google I saw Istokewa Surf Tour and inquire for it.
and Thank you Kuya Bart because for us you are the main organizer of this trip! :D

The Trip:
The trip to Baler is around 6 hours. From Manila, it will be a 3-hour ride to Cabanatuan City (Nueva Ecija), where there will be a 30-minute stopover (we can also have another stopover if the need arises. The last 3 hours of the trip, almost one hour of which will be on rough roads, will pass through Pantabangan (Nueva Ecija), CastaƱeda (Nueva Vizcaya), Maria Aurora (Aurora), and finally, Baler (Aurora). On the trip home, there will be a stopover for dinner at NLEX.

For the first time I saw Baler I fell in love with the place. Hmmm its like I can still hear the sound of splashing wave.

We stay at Bay's Inn Hotel. With two breakfast complimentary meal. It has another Inn's named Bahaia de Baler more high class than Bay's Inn. And because we are out of budget we look for alternative food choice. It has a rolling store in bayan cheaper and the taste is not bad. We also visit Baler church, Quezon Park, Museo de Baler and pasalubong Center.

In our activities, we went to Ermita Hill and Caunayan Falls and we do surfing!
Yes surfing for the first time is not bad!:D

What i learned in this tour:
1. First time to surf.
2. First time to drink tequilla oh lalala. hahaha
3. First time maging tangero. In 15 minutes kalahati kagad ang tequilla at tumba na silang lahat! ako rin pala.
4. First time sugurin and wave at nakikipag laro sa wave. What I did is I copy what the intructor do when the wave is coming. :D

Get insured in Pru Life UK

I decided to have a life insurance this year (2015) I'm now in my late 20's, single, childless, been in the industry for 6 years. Somehow, I have my own emergency fund. 

It was 1st week of January 2015 when an officemate talk to me regarding life insurance of PRU LIFE UK, at first it was hesitant and a bit awkward, because the topic is all about me in the future would encounter "illnesses", "accident" and the worst is "death" (knock on woods 3x) it's so taboo topic. She presented life insurance with investment. Since I am very interested in investments then I gave it a shot.

To make the story short, the "projection" of investment wowed me PLUS that I am also insured when I get the policy. It will force me to save for my retirement, for my future kids and for my family.

Before I decided to invest, I had my research, there is a lot of positive clients in the forum and bloggers recommending the products of Pru Life UK, their investment rea…
