"My Space" aishen1208's Profile


Hi there!!! Welcome to my humble space.

I’m Shiena, your travel buddy from the Philippines. Currently working as a financial analyst…already married and a mom of three lovely angels…click here to view my family…

I’ll try to update my travel pages as often as I could…I just hope that you would find my tips helpful and interesting…I’m open to comments and feedbacks, whether positive or negative…

Hope to gain more friends here in VT.

Enjoy life,


what's new with me?...

hey guys...i'm back!

been away for years! sorry for that! i surely miss you all!

promise to update this with my recent trips very very soon....

my interests...

Here’s the list of things, places, people, etc. that interest me most:
- Goin to beaches, whether I will be swimming with the kids or just enjoying the scenery
- taking care of my kids (love it when were playing waters while they are taking a bath)
- taking pictures (I really like it, hope I could enroll in a photography class soon)
- spending quality time w/ my hubby…sharing thoughts…
- sleep - I need more of this as I am working in a night shift and really find it hard to get a quality sleep during day time.
- Reading magazine about parenting, travelling, home decoration and improvements


my VT experiences...

Well, same with my fellow Vters, I came across VT when I’m trying to look for a nice place to visit during weekend…I never imagined that I will be hooked in this site…that I would really be enjoying reading others’ travel story.

VT helps me a lot when I need some information for our trip…I am usually tasked to make the itinerary since they think I’m more knowledgeable…well, thanks to VT, it guides me in planning for the trip.

What I most like about VT, is the friendship you would developed among fellow VT’ers. Location, race, culture is not really a hindrance to make new friends…I love it when somebody drop you a note just to say hi…you never know, but it really brightens my day…

I have attended 3 VT meets and each one is equally fun and memorable…

my travel pages...

My work as an auditor before allows me to travel in and out of the country…some places I have visited are the following:


San Jose California (stayed at Staybridge Hotel - 6 weeks)
Palawan (audited club noah isabelle, stayed there as well)
Bangkok Thailand (for 2 months secondment, stayed at oakwood hotel)

Family travels

Guimaras island

Quezon (some of my relatives live here)
Mindoro (Puerto Galera)
Subic, Zambales

Travel with friends

I decided not to put on the travels I had before I got married (onto the travel pages), since that was way way years ago…my tips might not be helpful anymore…hehe…so what would you find on my travel pages?…well, only the places I have visited after I got married…whether with my hubby and two kids…or with my friends…or alone (haven’t done this so far).

So to give you a summary, here are the places I’ve been to after I got married (most recent first):

- ilocos sur (family vacation)
- ilocos norte (celebrate my daughter's birthday)
- guimaras island, iloilo and roxas city (family vacation and to visit my best friend)
- tagaytay (we often visits this place)
- batangas (celebrated my 2nd daughter’s b-day)
- baguio (christmas vacation w/ family and friends)
- laguna (celebrated my 1st daughter’s bday, xmas party w/ previous officemates)

my travel wish list...
