INDONESIA: Experience the Wonders of Indonesia on your Next Trip in 2017!

Getting the opportunity to visit Indonesia was one of the most eye-opening journeys for me. Along with 20 style, travel, and local influencers, I traversed Komodo-filled forests and plains, watched legendary sunrises, swam with a hundred species of fish, conquered steep hikes that led to stunning vistas, and immersed myself in a culture that is both unique and unforgotten.

I am incredibly thankful to the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism for making everything happen. Had I not been part of this year's Trip of Wonders, I would have missed out on one of the best trips of my life!

Here are my #TripofWonders highlights in Indonesia …

Bo Sanchez’s Kerygma Conference 2016 “FORWARD!” (An Invitation)

Kerygma Conference 2007

I was stuck with my multinational job in 2007 and I felt a nagging feeling for a greater calling.

When I attended the first ever Kerygma Conference in 2007 in Ultra, I was inspired by the Holy Spirit to pursue my blog full time.

2-OAP Story & Digital Marketing 2016, Beyond.006

Recently, I found the “resignation” letter I wrote my wife when I was in the US attending an Internet Marketing Conference and how she supported my decision.   

I left my high-paying job the succeeding year in May 2008 and I’ve been blogging full-time and living an awesome life ever since …

 

I would like to invite you to make that life-changing experience on the 10th year anniversary of Kerygma Conference, KCON for short, on November 17-20, 2016 at SMX and SM MOA Arena with the theme, “Forward”.  

Here’s what to expect at the Kerygma Conference …

THE ROYAL AMBARRUKMO: Rubbing Elbows with Kings and Presidents through History

DSCF5468

The Royal Ambarrukmo is more than just a hotel—rather, it is a documentation of the the rich history leading up to its modern transformation. Bearing witness to the turn of the Mataram Kingdom right up to the Indonesian Republic we know today, the hotel was initially a venue reserved for royalty and foreign dignitaries.

Notable names the hotel has proudly hosted are Herman Willem Daendels, who served as Governor General of the Dutch East Indies; Pakubowono X, the beloved Surakarta King; the Kings of the Yogyakarta Sultanate; and the first-ever Indonesian president, President Soekarno.

During the reign of Hamengkubuwono II of the Yogyakarta Sultanate, the hotel was just a simple Joglo—a uniquely Javanese house with a tapered roof that signifies economic status, typically reserved for aristocrats. By the 5th Sultan’s reign, the space was eventually renovated and expanded. Development continued with every generation as did its value. It earned the moniker of Kedaton (house of the king) and became the official residence of Hamengkubuwono VII after his abdication in 1921.

Now as a cosmopolitan space with 5-star amenities and world-class services, the Royal Ambarrukmo invited us for a regal stay in one of Yogyakarta’s top hotels.

AUCKLAND Travel Guide: Lessons in Traveling to New Zealand! @FlyPal

IMG_6617

I’ve been to Auckland twice already and this post is a compilation of our travel notes, tips, and tricks when traveling to New Zealand.

This is also an update on our initial post, First Timer’s Guide to Auckland, New Zealand!

Here are the lessons we learned from our last visit to Auckland… 

 

WHAT TO BRING DURING TRAVEL

Auckland - Waiheke-9.jpg

For this Auckland trip, I used my stylish business laptop bag (Samsonite GT Supreme) that weighs less than 7kg, and a big enough luggage to carry the 30kg maximum bag allowance.

The laptop bag can accommodate up to a 15.6″ laptop, and with a smart sleeve, it easily slipped into my telescopic luggage handle, which I appreciate. I didn’t need to worry about my bag falling, making for an effortless travel. This is very useful especially when I travel with my boys, who love to play around and tend to bump into anything near them.

MADE NICE Supper Club by Young New York-Trained Filipino Chefs!

(As featured in 10 Most Awesome New Homegrown Restaurants That Matter in Manila 2016!)

Made Nice Supper Club-24.jpg

MADE NICE is a New York-inspired restaurant serving Western cuisine with Asian influences. It’s by the Greatful Group made up of young New York-trained Chefs–Jack Flores (29) and wife Gabbi Ramos Flores (22), Toby Panlilio (26), Wren Go (27), and Raulito Fores (26). 

Gabbi is the daughter of Neil of Neil’s Kitchen fame, while Raulito comes from the Fores clan of Mamou. It’s inspiring to see the next generation of restaurateurs going back to Manila and contributing to the flourishing vibrant dining scene in their homeland.

The name of the resto is inspired by Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s “Make It Nice” restaurant group.

My wife and I had a date night with some friends at Made Nice. Here’s a first look into this Supper Club…

SASAK TRIBE OF LOMBOK: How Ancient Traditions Still Endure in the 21st Century

Sasak Sade Village

The Sasak, a predominantly Balinese ethnic group, makes up 85% of Lombok’s population. Lombok was previously a feudal state divided into small, ruling kingdoms that followed mixed belief systems such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Animism. By the 16th century, the majority of the Sasak converted to Islam, but maintained old religious practices—creating a uniquely Lombok blend of a Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist religion jointly called Wetu Telu.

On our #TripofWonders to the Island of Lombok, we paid an essential visit to one of the quaint cultural villages of the area. At Sade, the ancient weaving practices of the Sasak Tribe endure in the midst of Lombok’s touristic development.
