How to Apply Australian Tourist Visa in the Philippines

As the plane approaches the runway, there’s a feeling of excitement. I don’t mind going back to my favorite cities in Asia but this new feat of exploring a new territory is truly remarkable. Australia was a far-fetched idea before, until a beautiful coincidence. And yes, me and my buddy conquered the land down under, together, after we sealed our union.

Laid Back Zambales: My Wedding Story

It was dreamlike—seeing familiar faces, cheering as I walk down the sandy path. The simple mango orchard was turned into an enchanted place. Everything went blurry afterwards. I slowly approached the ceremony arch. And there he was, amongst the two hundred fifty warm bodies I spotted him. Teary-eyed, but he looked happy. Everything made perfect sense afterwards. This is my new blissful life.

Another Adventure in Bacolod City: The Ruins

Bacolod City has a special place in Blissful Guro’s heart. I wrote about it back in 2013, which was structured like a guide to Bacolod City and don’t forget our post on chicken inasal at Nenah’s Beth. So it’s safe to say the topic isn’t new to Blissful Guro. This time around, we will explore. The Ruins in Bacolod, a famous site that sees thousands of travelers venture to the region every year to witness firsthand what remains of The Ruins.

Thailand: Boonya Resort Koh Chang

I slowly dragged myself out of bed as I woke up effortlessly from a ten-hour sleep. I nudged the door and walked towards our private veranda. My buddy greeted me with a smile and motioned for me to join his musings while having his morning coffee. We didn’t spoke of anything but just relished that solitude moment. It was our fifth day on the third largest island in Thailand and we’re enjoying this seclusion we’re having at Boonya Resort Koh Chang.

Koh Chang: The Underrated Third Largest Island in Thailand

When I think about the best beaches I’ve been to, Koh Chang will be definitely not included on the list. Koh Chang may not have that picturesque almost desktop wallpaperish beach backdrop but the overall vibe of the island can be soothing, if you even get to the beach in the first place. We’ve stayed for a week on the third’s largest island in Thailand and we totally had a bipolar experience altogether; serenity and confusion.

Thailand: Serenity Resort at Koh Chang

Three days. We survived three days without the itch to go somewhere just for the sake of doing something. It was a retreat of some sort. To enjoy the art of doing nothing and yet, there’s a feeling of contentment. We were on the quiet side of Koh Chang in Thailand and we literally had serenity at Serenity Resort.

Four Reasons to Get an Immigration Consultant for an Australian Visa

Having a Philippine passport can sometimes be inconvenient especially if your dream country requires you to secure a visa when entering it. Gladly, there are people who dedicate their lives to offer their services and expertise regarding this matter. I applied for an Australian tourist visa last November and I got approved 22 hours after. Thanks to a licensed immigration consultant.
