Blog Name : Budget Biyahera

Blog Description : Budget Biyahera is a travel blog. It also speaks of budget travels and other family-oriented journeys.

About the blogger

Mai is a Clothing Technology graduate from UP Diliman. A fashion design graduate turned Freelance Writer / Travel & Food Blogger, she now enjoys every moment in her change of careers.

She mostly blogs about her love for traveling, while documenting (with photos, travel cost sheets, etc.) her trips from different parts of the Philippines and Asia. She also aspires to travel around the world, and also hopes to publish her stories in God's pleasant time.

What is the inspiration behind your blog and how long has it been around? 

Mai started blogging about her travels after realizing that she wanted to share the 'budget-conscious-wanderluster' in her. She started blogging in 2008.

She also grew up with a family of 13 members. And this meant getting trained to learn the disciplines of keeping everyday things on a budget. And ever since then, noting expense breakdowns, and making various itineraries for her family and friends made her hone this 'organizational' skill. Later, putting this to good use in terms of traveling local and international destinations.

How did you get into blogging?

Mai has gone past the stage of noting travel-related stuff on her notebook, which lead her into exploring the dainty features of a blog. She started on the Wordpress platform, which eventually lead to her transfer to Blogger. 

What is your favorite blog post and why?

Mai's favorite blog post would have to be her very first entry: The Birth of Budget Biyahera . Her late father's influence has brought her to love traveling. He helped her embrace the wanderluster in her.

  34. I love reading travel blogs such as this one, Since I didn't get to travel that much (no free time)

  35. HI every one!
    I love writing sa mga blogs. lalo na kapag may sasabihin ako..mga bagay bagay..(malayang paghahayag ng nararamdaman)

    Naaalala ninyo ba ng high school kayo iyong libro na binasa ninyo sa Filipino?History book? Literature? at ang Librong isinulat ni Rizal.
    Naisip ko lang maraming taong nagdaan na pala..sa ASIA alam ko kasama ang Pilipinas sa MAPA..
    Pero bakit ganoon no? Sa lahat ng pinaka masama Pilipinas kasama..(kakalungkot)
    Pero pagdating sa Pag-ahon at kabutihan para sa bansa natin..(hinde kasama ang Pilipinas)
    We Filipino People don't belong in any good news in the world! (kakahiya diba?)
    Bakit kaya? kasi po tayo mismong mga Pinoy ang sumisira rito.
    We don't respect our selves. kanya kanya tayo. Crab Mentality..we all have that.
    Sana naman Mahiya tayo kahit kunti lang..gumawa naman tayo ng mabuti kahit simple lang ng walang kapalit..
    Kailan ko kaya mababasa sa newspaper na ang headline hinde tungkol sa Actress or Actor? hinde sa Pag patay? Sino kaya ang ang magkakaroon ng lakas ng loob na mag bandera ng economic statements ng bansa natin?..Sino kaya ang maglalakas ng loob na magsasabi na Panalo kami ng Bayan ko..
    well, isapa..Sa mga models..Sa india, indian citizen ang mga models nila pure indians as respect to their culture, even on China, Korean, and other Asians..
    Pero sa Pinas walang Respeto sa Sariling Kulay at Bayan..
    Even sa Culture walang pakialam...
    Sa Sports AZCALS, more Players their are not Pilipinos..
    They're Half Filipinos, yes they are..but, marunong ba silang magtagalog? hinde nga eh..diba?
    Look at their surnames..
    Sana naman kunting respeto sa Pangalan ng Bansa natin kahit kunti lang nasa Flat world na po tayo..
