Taste Of Canada - Where To Get Fresh Canadian Beef and Goodies In Dubai


A portion of this juicy Canadian beef went to my tummy right after that hot air balloon experience from Landrover. An invite to attend Taste of Canada to experience different Canadian delights at The Ritz Carlton JBR came in and who am I to say no?

Before hopping on a photo shoot for a magazine, I kidnapped my blogger friend Kenneth Surat for some gelato treats at The Beach JBR. It's winter here in Dubai and you are probably asking why are we having ice cream?

Finally gotten over my El Nido, Palawan trip with occasional separation anxiety on my island living in the Philippines because the little miss is an island lady by heart. As soon as I arrived in Dubai last Nov. 28, hustling and grinding continued and you will surely be excited on a few upcoming Dubai posts because the events I went to for the past weeks are waaaay over the top and even ticked of a few of my bucket lists - one of them is riding a hot air balloon.

Budget Friendly Hotel In El Nido: Dormitels

Have you enjoyed my previous post about Eco Hotels? After a few hours of posting it, I had several messages that came in via Instagram asking me for other hotel options in Palawan that are budget friendly and does not require thousands of pesos to spend with. 

Like I mentioned on my travel tips in going to El Nido, it's fairly easy to look for a budget friendly hotel - all you have to do is book it ahead of time and don't travel without any reservations. Agoda and Booking.com has a lot to offer but majority of them are located at the city proper which in my own opinion is not really advisable because it gets really noisy at night. 

The good news is Eco Hotels has a sister hotel that caters to backpackers, transient travellers and practical vacationers - and that is Dormitels!

You won't believe it but living in the Philippines for more than 20 years, I wasn't able to fully explore our country. That is because we have more than 7,100 islands surrounded by big bodies of water, going places isn't that easy. So as a first time visitor, I'm sharing with you guys a few travel tips that might be of help if you are planning to visit El Nido.
