Soon enough, we’ll have our alarms set back to 6AM and start missing out on fun parties at night (que horror) because we need to reconnect with our #priorities a.k.a. being a good student, endless term papers and the thing we dread in college the most—thesis. This and that will eventually happen but save the stress for later because we’ve got you covered for the rest of the vacay. Here’s a list of walwal things to do—alone or with your friends—before acads take over our lives again.

Get a tattoo


First things first, when getting a tattoo, choose a design you’re not gonna regret later or forever. Remember that this is not like a temporary tat that will wash off after your second shower or so. Go with something that will represent yourself and not anyone else, because that’s the main point of getting inked.

Good news to all the tattoo lovers out there! Whiplash Tattoo, located in BF Parañaque, Aguirre St., is celebrating their 5th anniversary and giving away up to PHP 5,000 worth of gift certificates to 5 lucky winners via #ESCAPEscores! Stay tuned and follow us on Instagram via @escapetothepalace and @whiplashtattoo and follow the #ESCAPExWhiplashTattoo hashtag to know how to join.

Dye your hair


Whether it’s loud or a little lowkey—the thing is, we gotta start the school year looking fresh AF, even though we know this freshness could only last for a few weeks.

Go cliff diving

This is a bit hardcore but the fact that you’re cliff diving could actually make your blood rush and your heart beat faster, and isn’t this what we’re all about?   

Go on a spontaneous trip with friends

Spare yourself from the inevitable chance of drawing lakads. It doesn’t matter where you’re going because with Grab’s Grabcar feature, you can definitely make it happen and it being hassle-free is just a big bonus so you can go and hit the road without any hesitation.

Go day drinking

If this is something that you haven’t tried yet, then you should definitely give it a go. Remember, there are things you need to consider when you attempt to go day drinking: 1) the place should have a very chill vibe 2) choose the right drinks to go with it and 3) don’t sweat it ‘cause we have it all set for you.

Spend a weekend alone

Our usual grind requires us to meet and talk to people even when we’re not in the mood. So it’s good to spend some time alone and go off the grid for a while just to regain yourself before you even lose it again.

End that summer fling

When you know from the beginning that it is just indeed a one-time thing, then you would’ve already prepared for this moment. End that summer fling and don’t let it consume your remaining summer days. A’s before baes, right?

Go skinny dipping

Must be cliché but still high-level risky. Not everyone is up for this kind of crazy, so if you are, then do it! In the end, no one should judge a free and wild spirit.

Head outdoors with your BFF wearing a onesie

This is when you wanna be a little crazy and cute at the same time. Go with a recognizable cartoon character onesie and do twinning looks with your bestie so the OOTDs will look on point.

Experience real walwal

And who else throws the craziest walwal in the city? You know us too well, fam. This coming May 19, Dutch DJ and tropical house pioneer Sam Feldt will be rocking the Valkyrie Nightclub stage and this might be the ultimate summer ender party you’re looking for!
