5 Ways to Make the Most Out of Your Motiongate Dubai Experience


Motiongate Dubai was the first park we ever visited out of the four theme parks inside Dubai Parks and Resorts.

And it has blown us away. We had so much fun and the adrenaline rush we had was unimaginable.

All four of us are movie lovers so imagine our excitement. When you have children, most likely you know all the characters in many if not all children's movies. Most likely you also know the names of the characters, even the dialogues. Yeah, do I see moms nodding?

If you're like us, I am sure, you and your kids will enjoy Motiongate. The park is geared to entertain all ages so there is always something for everyone.

If you've been, what was your favorite part of it? Please share us your experience.

Mine was Lionsgate The World of The Hunger Games.

We were invited to its grand opening and that was our second time at Motiongate Dubai.

Lionsgate The World of The Hunger Games was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! Motiongate Dubai was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!

That's exactly what Dubai Parks and Resorts wants every visitor to experience and it did not disappoint. It even exceeded our expectation. We simply love every inch of the place.

Armenia: Winter Travel Diary Part 3 l 10 Places in 2 Days


Seeing this view from my airplane window seat as we approach Armenia made my heart skip with excitement. I knew right away that Ferald and I were in for an awesome adventure.


Half of the fun we had in Armenia is narrated here and here. For the most fun part, allow me to share with you our first snow experience when we explored, for two days, this beautiful Caucasus country last January.

On our second day in Armenia, we joined a day tour north of Yerevan to Kotayk and Gegharkunik provinces. The day tour cost AMD 7000 / AED 53 per person exclusive of entrance fees. The only place with tourism fee is the Garni Temple. It's AMD 1500 per person. The rest is for free.

Basilico's GourMed Brunch l The Cove Rotana, Ras Al Khaimah


If someone asks me where to eat in Ras Al Khaimah before, I might find it difficult to give a quick reply.

Ask me now and I will recommend Basilico in a heartbeat. 




Go on a Friday between 12 to 4 pm and experience GourMed Brunch

It is where you'll find delicious food, upbeat atmosphere and stunning views of the Arabian Gulf.


That's exactly how I remember our dining experience here.


Basilico is an award-winning restaurant. It offers a variety of traditional choices of delectable Meditteranean dishes with reverence to Italian cuisine.



You'll find Basilico nestled at The Cove Rotana, a five-star hotel and resort located on an idyllic water inlet on the Ras Al Khaimah beachfront. The resort boasts 600 meters of pristine beach overlooking the Arabian Gulf, two outdoor infinity pools, and Nubian inspired rooms and villas.

Armenia: Winter Travel Diary Part 1


Our snow adventure in Jermuk

Our recent trip to Armenia is an impromptu trip. And although fleeting, it was definitely unforgettable.

Ferald's move to a different company at the end of 2017 prompted this trip. Armenia has become a popular exit route among Filipinos seeking re-entry to the UAE. Oman border is closed at that time, apparently, so naturally, he switched to this option because Armenia is the next most convenient and affordable country to travel to.

Pancake House Dubai


The weekend before my impromptu Armenia trip with Ferald, we took the kids for a nice breakfast at Pancake House. It was Friday morning so I didn't expect the restaurant to be crowded. Turns out, they're busy, which tells me they have good food worth waking up for (if not, fast and free wifi, jk) Or maybe both.
