Summer break is fast approaching! In the Philippines, the months of April and May brings good business as most families embark on family road trips. The holy week break is also a perfect excuse to unwind and reflect about life.
In Pangasinan, the month of April and May means Pista’y Dayat time and of course, the yearly Bangus Festival in Dagupan City! The town of Lingayen is the capital of the province of Pangasinan and most of their hotels and resorts are in demand.
That is the reason why I decided to secure a booking through Traveloka App. If you’re still not aware, Traveloka is the newest flight and hotel booking platform dominating the Philippines. With its enticing promos and good selection of hotel partners (even Pangasinan hotels that I never thought I’d find!), this travel app is already attracting the inner ILOCANA in me.
Whenever I am in Dagupan City, I make it a point to visit Pretty Tipsy Nail & Waxing Salon. Nah, I am not gulping hard drinks while having my nails done (although guests can do that by special request, me thinks). I just feel that I deserve some pampering after traveling.
Lakwatseras need pampering too!
Right after our quick Tambobong Beach Independence Day Getaway last month, Gay and I met up at Stargreen Promenade for a girl bonding afternoon in Dagupan City’s kikay hub. With the pinkish facade and girlish interior design, customers will automatically feel extra kikay.
Last week, I went to Dagupan City. My main purpose is to attend the wedding of Ruby, one of my closest friends in high school. I admit feeling lazy to travel by bus again since I want to just work on my laptop the whole week, but this is an important event in a friend’s life that I shouldn’t miss.
Lost in Tebeng but still smiling =)
Together with Maire (another close high school friend of mine), we rode the 9AM Five Star Bus trip from Cubao to Dagupan. I stayed in their place and it is my first time to visit her house in YEARS. I am quite surprised that there’s a lot of CCTV cameras around! I guess it’s for safety purposes since they have some apartment spaces for rent on the third floor. One time, I got caught dancing via CCTV 0_o Still thinking if I should upload that part or not =))
Anyway, I want to share what I did in Dagupan last week. I am planning to write about the different establishments I’ve been to in Senyorita and will write a longer entry about Ruby’s wedding soon.
