Q: Hello po! Ano pong kinuha nyong course nung college?
A: UST AB Journalism! :) Second choice ko lang to sa UST, first choice ko was adver. Also passed in Ateneo IS & 2nd choice ko sa UP LB Mass Comm. :) 


Q: I love your travels! Have you traveled solo pala?
A: Yes! It's my thing to travel solo at least once a year since hmm 2016!! :) Click here for my thoughts on solo travels.


Q: Why not try vlogging din ate since u like to share a lot of stuff through vids also hehe
A: Gusto ko talaga hahaha but minsan pag consciously ko sya ginawa like tinapat ko na yung camera ng pa horizontal natatameme nako hahaha.. ilang beses ko na ineffortan! Mas comfy ako pag phone lang and naka vertical for 15 seconds IG Story. 😅

Sana magawa ko din sya next time coz enjoy din ako sa vlogs as a viewer! And for now at least nakikita din ninyo na I vlog kahit sa igtv ko lang, to document--first and foremost! 😊 (Note: I meant here is that I still vlog kahit hindi trend or money-driven. But just because I enjoy documenting in different formats)


Q: Naiintindihan nyo na po ang subs sa kdrama dahil sa coursera course u took?
A: Hindi padin! Second basic class ko nato but di ako fast learner talaga by nature hahaha so enjoying lang the process and paulit ulit lang ako til may mag stick sa head ko (learning through repetition).

Masaya nako na kahit onting words naka communicate ako nun last trip ko. Kanwari sinabi ko sa guesthouse owners ko noon "Kabang! Kabang!" nun kukunin nya key ko e yun kabang (bag) ko asa room ko pa hahaha. Or pag may familiar word ako narinig sa Korean show "Uy chemisoyo daw!" (ang saya / having fun) hahaha or nakaka basa ako ng onting labels sa Korean groc. :) 


Q: What made you decide to go for macbook instead of other laptop brand? :)
A: Hello! So ang history ko with my gadget, I started with PC (personal computer) na napanalunan ko sa art contest haha! Joined a Banana Peel design your own flipflops tapos I bought PC from the cash prize! 

Nun nauso laptop, I got an HP hand me down sa cousin ko. Matagal ko din nagamit yun, tipong sira na yun Y (key) and cinocopy paste ko nalang sya hahaha pero sulit na sulit sya (and free!)

First laptop ko talaga from my own money ay Macbook Pro, I guess coz natempt ako sa walang virus feature nya haha. (One less thing to worry about). Also, was using iPhone at that time so parang nag match din with Airdrop and compatible apps and files, etc.

Nasira din first laptop ko in 3 years, and since need ko talaga ng kapalit agad for my work, I just bought yun cheapest Macbook at that time na hindi din naman cheap lol--Macbook Air! Maliit lang memory but at least di ko na need aralin or sanayin yung pag use. Next time try ko uli mag HP siguro pag nag all-out android phone nako. :)  



Q: Any love life advice esp ngayong lockdown? :(
A: Okay pass next question pls! Charot hahaha!

Ano in particular about love life? :)

If LDR (Long Distance Relationship) siguro communication is key. Tiis nalang muna mahirap na since pandemic! Health is wealth!

If looking for love, naku ayos lang yan. :) Hindi gugunaw ang mundo ng wala love life, there is more to life! Nood nalang muna tayo Kdrama o stan ng Kpop boys hahaha!


Q: How many countries have you travelled na ate?
A: Eto yun asa blog ko na labels, wala pa pala yung India and Thailand, but honestly hindi ako mabilang hahaha!

Di ako mashado tanda-in on certain things like price ng nabili or dates.. and siguro isama na natin tong number of countries visited.. Kaya siguro ako nag bblog and document lagi para may mabalikan! 😁 Try ko keep track and update next time!


Q: Dream destination po?
A: Eto naka print out na sya inspired by @realasianbeauty vlog hehe: Paris, Iceland, New Zealand, and Holy Land (last should be with whole fam. :))


Q: Sino pong bias nio sa BTS? :)
A: Si V!!! Hahaha, parang si Liza Soberano sa vlog ng @btsunniesph meron din akong secret stan Twitter acct for V hahaha!


Q: Ana nakapag book ka na ba ng flight during this lockdown? When, where, and why? Hehe
A: Yes! Hahaha umaasa ako na ok na lahat ng next year May. Booked for Incheon with my bessy @artsyava sa isang CebPac sale parang 9k lang ata RT (roundtrip) and kaming dalawa na hehe

PS: Matapang lang ako coz rebookable tickets nila for free up to 2x, and also yun Travel Funds ng Cebpac valid for 2 years na. :) Read more here.


Q: Just curious po. Do you travel with your savings or sponsored po?
A: Mix mix na! :) Most solo Korea trips ko own money ko. Japan din, US, Europe, India.. Pag family trip or barkada trip own ipon ko. Siguro may part sponsorship kanwari yun Internet (pocket wifi) na gamit ko for the longest time TEP Wireless may partnership na kami for my every travel matagal nadin siguro mga 2-3 years na ako with TEP? :)

Minsan may tours na sagot ng Trazy Korea before, or Klook in exchange of a blog post, so in short hindi din sya free pala technically (I still have work to do for them). Or nagka time din I worked for airlines like AirAsia or CebPac in some of their campaigns, so yung "payment" nila for my services are plane tickets. Most of these nagamit ko sa Korea trip ko.

Ay may mga trip din pala na napanalunan ko lang sa contest! Like yung Jeju na nandyan sa pic haha, meron din ako before Bali! IG photo contest ko naman napanalunan.

May press trips din ako na obvious na press trip pag may kasama din akong ibang bloggers. :) Examples are yun Hokkaido trips ko, Fukuoka, yung cruise, ano pa ba.. Meron din ako 2 Malaysia na press junkets. Pag ganun sponsorship sya so no money-out for me unless I shop or something. But in exchange, I have to post din for the airline or tourism board, etc. :)
