MY FIRST VLOG: DAY TRIP TO LAIYA

Jason and I had a free day from work and basketball practice. We haven’t gone on a trip in a while so I really wanted to do something different! Luckily, my driver was free on that day so my parents allowed me to use him! ( Thank you parentals )   Being the creature of habit that I am, I decided to go to a place that i’m quite familiar with.

Hopefully you guys enjoy this video!  🙂   Follow me on: Instagram – @margabanaga Twitter – @margabanaga Facebook – @margabanaga92
