LBC Air Packet

LBC Air Packet envelope and bill of landing form

We have again another LBC Air Mail review. The last one I did was back in 2016 and I reviewed sending an airmail for a small box for about $27.00. That rate was a promo rate back in 2016 and has since increased.

Today I’m doing a review on their LBC Air Packet service which promises 4-7 day business time delivery. Continue reading

A Guide to Japan’s Friendly Limousine Bus Narita to Haneda Transfer

I’ve been waiting for forever to do this guide for the Limousine Bus Shuttles at Narita and Haneda airport. The only way for me to do this was to literally fly into Japan, an expensive feat.

Luckily I had a recent trip to Manila this March and my All Nippon Airways route gave me an option to do a long layover in Tokyo and do a airport transfer from Narita to Haneda.  Grabbed the opportunity to document step by step my first time use of the Friendly Airport Limousine shuttle from Narita Airport to Haneda.

San Pablo’s Sulyap café and Bed & Breakfast


This is a long, long overdue post. Again hooray for IRL life getting in the way. And also a faulty old laptop that is still serving me in many ways.

Last 2016 I took a short trip back to the Philippines and spent a majority of those days in my home province of San Pablo Laguna.

Man, I LOVE Laguna. It is one of the biggest provinces in Luzon, has a vast eco tourism market from hot springs, private resorts, hiking trails, waterfalls, and not to mention the food.

San Pablo Laguna is about an hours drive away from Manila. I always loved featuring San Pablo in my travel posts because there are just so much to share about this beautiful city. I wanted to find a hidden gem similar like to the time I found Bato Springs.  Also since we had a huge family reunion at my ancestral home, the lot of us would not fit in the Bukids small 3 bedroom shack (there’s about 15 of us).

I wanted to take my younger nieces away with me while the boys play. A quick google search brought my attention to Sulyap Café & bed and breakfast located in Barangay Del Remedio, just within the Cocoland Compound.  Taking the local tricycle or jeepney commute is just about 10-15 minutes or less from the city proper.
