    Taiwan Budget Itinerary for Couples: Travel for less than PhP 20,000!

    UPDATE July 2019: Filipinos may enter Taiwan visa-free for another year We never thought we’d be visiting Taiwan this year up until we saw a Scoot seat sale from Singapore.

    How to Fight as a Couple?

Our favorite blender. 👌🏽 The Problem We were preparing dinner last night, Mark was setting the table and I was working on our berry blended beverage. It was a normal night when suddenly my fruit shake started flooding the base of our blender! Instincts kicked in, I turned it off and removed the pitcher from the base…only to make…
