Villa Angelina Suites

Tired from an overnight ferry that brought us to Dapitan from Cebu City, my appreciation for various stuff stooped to its lowest levels. I preferred lying down or staring at the ceiling instead of going out and making conversations with other delegates. Since I came from work the day before, it was double the drowsiness. I was able to sleep on the boat, but I woke up every now and Read more

The boardwalk in Siargao's Cloud 9

It is no secret that the island of Siargao in Surigao del Norte province is a haven for water sports. And as you may all know, the most popular of these water sports is no other than surfing. The island’s coastal geography includes several islets with waves that are ideal for various surfing skill levels—thanks to the fact that Siargao faces the open sea, and the fact that it is Read more

Carnaza Island

As the sun alternately hid and peeked from the moving, scattered cumuli, the morning breeze blew gently to our dopey visage. Though there were intermittent drizzles, the weather, somehow, pepped up our tired, sinful souls. It was, indeed, an awesome day to explore new places. The Turbulent Sea However, as we approach the jetty of Tapilon, things became quite unsettling. The coast was disturbed with breakwater, and the surface of Read more

Taipei 101 from below

We scaled the view deck at the top floor of Taipei 101, anticipating that it would be much better up there. We were never wrong. It felt so good. We can see how the world progressed thus far.

Sambawan Island, Maripipi, Biliran

One Friday eve, I went to Cebu’s port and boarded a ferry bound for Palompon, Leyte. Everything happened on random, and I had no fix itinerary in mind. But what I had been thinking that moment was spending a beach camp in Kalanggaman, an island floating off the coast of the boat’s destination. Short Introduction of my Random Trip The dawn chilled a bit as I walk around Palompon. The town was Read more

Biri, Northern Samar: Bel-at Tidal Pool

Being stressed and angled for minutes, my elbow pit started to feel uncomfortable. My palms were itching too, yet I couldn’t let go of my grip. I could also feel my calf and feet trembling, but resting them was not among the choices. For some reasons, commuting was pretty difficult on that part of Samar on Holy Week. I was hanging at the back of the jeepney, breaking a leg, Read more

There is something very special about the island of Macau. Formerly a Portuguese colony, this autonomous region is now back in the hands of the People’s Republic of China. Nevertheless, it reflects a huge mix of cultural influences, and is a fascinating place to visit. Given its westernized past, it’s unlike anywhere else in China. That is why, it should be on the bucket list for anyone looking to travel Read more
