So it has been months already since my last post. In the past few months I was busy "adulting". I have been so tied-up with my OSCE review so I didn't have a chance to finish this blog until now. Finally I passed that nerve wracking exam and I'm now enjoying my UKRN (UK Registered Nurse) title... or maybe not? haha. Before I talk more about that, let me show you the timeline and fees of my UKRN application first:

PASSING THE IELTS EXAM (SELF REVIEW)
IELTS consists of 4 sections - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The highest score is 9 and you need to hit at least 7 on all sections to continue with your job/student application abroad. You already know the struggle here right? Aside from the expensive test fee, most of us would fail in the writing section. Some will need to do a retake for like 3,4 or 8 times just to pass. It's that scary. I would recommend everyone to enroll in a review center before taking the test, especially those who easily get distracted. For my part, I wanted to save money so I decided to do a self-review. I gave up all my hobbies just to focus and after 2 months of intensive review, with all my hard work and by the grace of God, I passed on my first take. With this, I want to share some techniques that helped me during the exam and this might help you as well. Take note that these strategies were effective for me and you always have the liberty to do it your own way.

Prior to a few days ago, Limasawa wasn't really a place I knew too much of. Although I've heard about its religious and historical significance in the Philippines, I wasn't really interested because history is a part of our past. I just want to forget the past and move on. LOL. But kidding aside, it's a four-hour drive from Tacloban and I just didn't have the chance to do so. Fortunately, I got invited by a friend and with my very limited budget, I just went for it because... YOLO! 😁

Although it's already my second time here, I still felt an excitement when I knew that I was coming back to Sohoton Cave and Natural Bridge in Basey Samar. The destination is still the same, but this time it is.... *drums rolling... it is hassle freeeeee! Yes that's right. I did a travel guide before for DIY trip but now it's my honor to present to you a better option. Instead of traveling inside a boring car from Tacloban City to Basey Town Proper, how about going there directly via boat? I think that's an awesome idea! I'm glad this was made possible by Aqua Momentum. Not only will they give you a hassle-free ride but will also cater everything that you need - from food, to entrance fees and etcetera. Imagine, you don't need to do anything else but to sit back, relax and enjoy your trip. Check out my video and pictures below to see how much I enjoyed the trip! 😆
So just last weekend, I spent a lazy day with family and relatives at Patio Victoria Resort in San Jose, Tacloban City. If you're a Taclobanon born in the 90s, you should be very familiar about Baluarte Resort. It was always the go-to place for family reunion or outdoor parties back in the days. Now don't be surprised, this is still the same place! They just changed the name to a more sophisticated one, with minor renovations. I'm glad they kept the structure of the swimming pool area as it gives a lot of childhood memories and it's seldom that we get to enjoy swimming without worrying about the heat of the sun since half of the pool is covered with a roof.

I'm not really a fan of cold springs due to cold intolerance but yesterday, my friend invited me to go to Pines Farm Resort in Burauen Leyte. I was just looking forward to filling my stomach with food and getting some fresh air but surprisingly, I enjoyed it more than expected. The cold spring water, the fresh air and the scenery - this is what weekends should be all about right? These pictures below would probably encourage you to go there asap!
