Most people are keen to celebrate Christmas in Hong Kong and Macau. The cities themselves certainly gets into the spirit of things, with lights strung across every skyscraper, shopping mall donned with christmas decorations and sales and major cultural events being celebrated. One of the must-seen events in Hong Kong happens in Disneyland on Lantau Island. They host christmas-themed entertainment which is good amusement for kids, especially to our baby boy, DeAngelo Kyle. This was our first time to travel abroad with our son. We had so much fun but nothing can beat the smile and laughter that we saw in our son’s face. It was all worthwhile.

Accommodation: Dorsett Regency Hotel Hong Kong


Cruisin’ from Singapore to Bali

Cruisin’ from Singapore to Bali from DREAMECHANICS by Teej & Melanie on Vimeo.

Traveled 2 destinations with my wife, Joanne and Ervinne. From Philippines we went to Singapore and then Bali. This is one of the best summer vacations we had together so far. We had so much fun in Singapore particularly in Universal Studios, Sentosa, Marina Bay and Orchard Road. The fun experience definitely sparked the kid in us once again. Our next stop was in Bali. We captured different parts of Bali, both its aesthetic and spiritual aura that captivates tourists from its breath taking cliffs to the vast ocean that hosts its seamlessly crafted temples. We all surely had a great time, mixing fun with tranquility of love. Bali is truly deserving of its trophy to be one of the best travel destinations in the world. To our tour guide, Antara and his friend who helped us in our travel itinerary, thank you so much! We’ll definitely go back to Bali and we’ll stay longer!

Boracay… Now Boarding

Boracay.. Now Boarding from DREAMECHANICS by Teej & Melanie on Vimeo.

BORACAY, PHILIPPINES. It is the 6th Best Beach Destination in the World according to TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice 2012.

Boracay Island, a scenic travel destination. This was our son’s first Boracay adventure (at 1 year and 6 months) and my hubby’s post-birthday celebration. Besides doing water sports, drinking cocktails and beers, partying every night at famous beach clubs at Station 1 and 2, smoking shisha while having chitchats and watching fireworks from our balcony, we also enjoyed lazing around at the hotel’s sun bed along the shore while sipping cola, building sandcastle with our little bundle of joy, teaching him swim and just relaxing while knowing everything’s perfect because we are with our son and everyone’s having a good time. Boracay beaching is really awesome! Boracay is a great place to relax, unwind and just do sweet nothings.

What happened during our 4-day stay (04.05-08.12):

*R&R at Shangri-La Boracay Resort and Spa
*Drove a jetski. Jet skiing is a very exciting water sport! We also recommend: Para-sailing, banana boat ride, helmet-diving & reef walking, ATV riding, Island hopping and snorkeling!
*Watched fire dancing. It is an exhilarating fiery waltz and a celebration of the most passionate element, fire! (fire dancers: Fire Diva of The Sand Bar Boracay)
*Partied hard at the beach coupled with cocktails and beers. Party house is in the house tonight, everybody just have a good time! (DJ Ace Ramos and Dj Martin Pulgar rocked the house at Guilly’s Island! Beach House Sexy hosted by Studio23.)
*Ate Chinese Food at Hap Chan Restaurant
*Drank our fave Frappe at Starbucks Coffee
*Smoked shisha. Molasses based tobacco concoction smoked in a hookah and its addictive!
*Food trip. Lots of restaurants to choose from!

DeAngelo Kyle at the Beach

Our baby DeAngelo Kyle’s 3rd Roadtrip: Summer in Subic 04.09.11 (6mos) Summer for me evokes images of sun-drenched day, lazy golden afternoon at the beach, ice-cold fruit juice, later starlit night and most importantly my family to complete it all. the memories of family outings will always be a source of love, strength and happiness to me. Thank you so much mama and papa for this trip, I’m sure you’ll arrange more travels like this in the near future just to make my baby boy, your grandson happy. Teej and I are both thankful for making our son’s childhood always memorable. We love you so much! (message from your daughter, Meanne)
