I Got A Free 1 Year Subscription of Vessel from Ellen DeGeneres

Vessel product shot

Vessel is a new website and app that provides early access to the web’s best short-form creators for a monthly subscription of $2.99. It was launched to the public last March 24 and offered a free one (1) year subscription to everyone who signed up on the first 72 hours. Now, that time has passed but do not fret.

Ellen DeGeneres has recently teamed up with Vessel and is offering the same deal to everyone who will sign up in the next 48 hours. I was fortunate enough to see this in my Facebook feed just an hour after it was posted on her official page, and I am now sharing it with you.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar: A Historical Tour

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar main grounds
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is an open-air museum and heritage park in Bagac, Bataan, Philippines. The resort’s theme is “Pride in the past, hope for the future” – Wikipedia

Last year, I received a very generous gift from a family friend, a groupon for an overnight stay at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar good for 4 people. The groupon was good until the end of May only but got extended till August. I invited my cousin Hanna to go with me and our other cousin’s son, Jasper.

How to Get to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar by commute

  1. We took the Genesis Bus from Cubao to Balanga, Bataan. Fare is around P200, and travel time is about 3 hours.
  2. After getting off at Balanga Terminal, (and after having lunch), we took a jeep going to Bagac. Fare is 47 pesos per person and travel time is 45 minutes to an hour. There’s a jeep that leaves every 30 minutes even when not full. You may inform the driver that you’re heading to Las Casas so he can drop you off at the nearest stop.
  3. We rode a tricycle that took us inside Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar for 10 pesos per person. It didn’t take 5 minutes to get there.

How to go back

Just backtrack your way in. The fares and schedules are almost the same.

How was your Christmas? And Some Game Review

O hai. I meant to do this sooner, like last week, but I was…erh..busy. Anywho… How was your Christmas? Mine was a bit uneventful as we spent it in bed, playing games on our phones. Heh.

I’m just here to share a few games I started playing since I got my new phone.


Plants vs. Zombies 2
Aawyeah! I was one of the people who got addicted to Plants vs. Zombies when it first came out years ago. When the 2nd version came out, I so wanted to play it but my previous phone was outdated.

Wishing You A Very Happy Christmas


Hey, how’s it going? It’s December 24th and while everyone is celebrating Christmas Eve, I’m having fruit salad given by the neighbor in front of the laptop and TV, blogging about whatever. Ha!

My mom and I don’t really do the Noche Buena thing unless we are invited to have dinner with her friends’ family. Otherwise, we’re content with just sitting at home watching movies while mom plays on her iPhone and I either play on my smartphone or browse Facebook. See, we’re big on multi-tasking.
