Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid, also known as the Grand Mosque of Cotabato

Adorned with four tall spires or minarets in the major corners of the main chamber; domes crowned with crescents; walls, doors, and floors crafted with Islamic designs; and array of stunning arches, the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid or the Grand Mosque of Cotabato looks really magnificent for every spectator.

Cagayan de Oro white water rafting

We missed whitewater rafting when we visited Cagayan de Oro (CDO) and Camiguin in 2013. So, when the group returned to Mindanao two years after, we could not afford to skip the activity for the second time. First thing we did when we reached CDO was look for Kagay, the most popular white water rafting organization in CDO, and booked a slot for 5. Despite the sun burn and aching Read more

Aquaria Beach Resort pool side

Upon finding our way to escape from summer heat, we found Aquaria Beach Resort in Calatagan, Batangas. It was all good, if we take out the time wasted for the long transport from the equation. To get there, we chartered a bus which brought us directly to the gate of the resort. To commute, hop on a Calatagan-bound bus or van from Pasay and then hire a trike to the resort. It Read more

Asik-Asik Falls

If that deep-blue river in Hinatuan defines “enchanted”, then Asik-asik Falls is probably the waterfalls version of it, wherein the cascades drip from a seemingly unknown source. The lush vegetation that covers the entirety of the perpendicular ravine adds mystery as to where the water is coming. You will have an impression of multiple springs sprouting from the rock walls, unless you come really close to it. Asik-asik Falls does not have Read more

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

At one point of his life, Architect Jose Rizalino “Jerry” Acuzar, the owner of San Jose Builders, fell in love with art and culture. With this love and his sizable amount of fortune, he built Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a heritage park that features centuries-old houses from all over the Philippines. Take note, the houses he built are not replicas. He collected the remains, parts, and ruins of these mansions and Read more
