While you are at it, you might also want to consider including your medical, health, or “nofollow”Marine insurance ID’s and papers at the ready.

Bring your own Personal Effects ~ for hygienic and safety purposes, it is highly recommended to bring your personal items like towels, slippers, utensils, and water bottles, especially during long travel when you would like to keep yourself hydrated. Bringing your own stuff will increase the chances of minimizing your exposure to the virus.

Opt for Cashless Transactions ~ now more than ever, we ought to tap technology and world wide web to our utmost advantage. Now that contact with other people are kept to a minimum, it is most ideal to opt for cashless transactions especially during travel. Install payment apps on your mobile phone and use them to pay for your fare, food, and accommodation.

Avoid Crowded Places ~ since the coronavirus is suspected to be airborne, it would also be wise to avoid crowded areas when you travel. Opt for the unbeaten path, the road less travelled, and those destinations not usually flocked by tourists and travellers. It would prove to be a breath of fresh air and an unforgettable experience.

Pack those Facial Masks ~ this is a no-brainer. Besides there is no way you can leave the house without one nowadays so make sure to pack a number of facial masks especially if you will be traveling for a number of days. Remember that you will also have to replace this several times a day depending on your level of exposure or where you heading. Disposable facial masks would prove to be handy, but for non-high risk travellers or if you are not heading to a hospital anytime within your travel, washabale or reusable facial masks ought to do the trick.

Bring Extra Face Shields ~ this is also a non-negotiable these days and there are even some establishments who will not let you in if you are not wearing one. For additional protection against the virus, best to pack up a few face shields for your travel.

January will be a very festive month in our city as we commemorate the formation of the Philippine’s First Republic on the 23rd. In line with this momentous occasion, the local city Government, led by our very dynamic City Mayor, lined-up a series of activities for everyone to partake in.

There will be a Short Film Festival to be held at local Cinemas joined in by local amateur film makers, a bike festival, a tricycle fest, several talent shows and contests joined in by musically-gifted Malolenos, as well as an assortment of other activities. The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform during the festival. One of the high, lights of the festivities is the reenactment of the activities that took place during the declaration of the very first Philippine Republic, when people from different parts of Luzon will come to Malolos to play brass band music on the streets in front of the Barasoain Church. We were able to watch the brass band competition about 2 years ago, where my brother’s band from Malolos won grand prize. The contest was judged by no less than Olivier Ochanine, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra {PPO}. You may read about our experience here.

The activities will be held in different venues in our city, including the Barasoain Church Plaza, the Malolos Sports and Convention Center, among others.

If you are from Malolos or residing anywhere near, this month is the most ideal time to visit our little charming city and participate in the many fun, educational, and relevant activities our city lined up to commemorate the First Philippine Republic.

If traveling to Malolos for the first time, proceed to NLEX and take Tabang Exit. The city proper is about 15-20 minutes away from the Exit. Explore your way around by asking a local directions or proceed to the local Tourism Office. When commuting, you can ride one of those UV Express vans in Trinoma. Its terminal is at Malolos Crossing, where everything else is just a Karatig ride away.

See you in Malolos City!
