Reflections: Taal's Our Lady of Caysasay

 Centuries of faith and adoration, enshrined in a church made of coral stone...


Having withstood countless earthquakes and volcanic eruptions from Taal Volcano, the Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Caysasay in historic Taal stands as a testament to a town's unwavering devotion and a continuous source of hope.

Fast Car: The Maserati Ghibli

Graceful and elegant, with all the horsepower you need to rule the road in true Italian fashion...


Named after the African desert wind, the Maserati Ghibli looks fast even while parked. The Italian thoroughbred is one classy ride, and I get a chance to experience the Maserati Ghibli up close.

The Wild Side. At Vitalis Villas...

Infinity pools, sunset cruises, elegant accommodations, comforting cuisine, and a 650 meter zipline. And Vitalis Villas takes you to the wild side with one more surprise up its sleeve... 


At the top of the hill next to the Zipline Tower of the impressive resort property is Vitalis Villas' very own Zoo, an attraction kids will surely enjoy. With plans of expanding its live exhibit of animals in the next few months, you can add this attraction to your list of family activities at Vitalis Villas (for more on Vitalis Villas, see my previous post here).

A Sunset Cruise at Sabangan Cove

It's the end of another perfect day at Vitalis Villas. But not just yet...


Vitalis Villas had one more activity lined up for us, a sunset cruise around Sabangan Cove. And Vitalis Villas continued to surprise and amaze (for more on Vitalis Villas, the North's newest summer lifestyle destination, see my previous post here)...

Speeding Through the Zipline at Vitalis Villas

One more shot of courage with a smooth single-malt. Make that two more shots. Let's do this...


It's not just any other zipline. At Vitalis Villas, it's 650 meters of pure speed across the expansive Sabangan Cove. And it just doesn't get any better than that...

Vitalis Villas: The North's Newest Summer Lifestyle Destination

Santorini? Mykonos? Think again...and you'd be surprised it's much closer to home.


After a short drive from Vigan (see my previous post on that trip here and the many flavors of Vigan on my other food blog here), we finally reached Ilocos Sur's Sabangan Cove for a glimpse of the newest, and probably the most stunning lifestyle resort development up north...

Go North: Back at Vitalis Resort & Spa

In stark contrast to my first visit (see my previous post on a cloudy day at Vitalis Resort & Spa here), my second visit to Vitalis Resort & Spa was greeted by the bluest skies yet, and the elegant white structures glowed under the summer sun. It's summer, and there's no better time to hit the beach...at Vitalis Resort & Spa.


Like sails on a yacht, the sparkling white structures of Vitalis Resort & Spa is a perfect northern getaway for sun, sand, and sea and one of the north's best kept secrets. 

One Night in Vigan

No matter how many times I've visited Vigan, each visit is always new and exciting, with always something new to experience, and new flavors to discover...


And even if my recent visit to Vigan was only for one night, it remained just as memorable as my previous trips. Vigan just never ceases to amaze...
