Lantaw SRP's Cassava Turon Ala Mode

Being reachable only with private cars and taxis, Lantaw SRP isn’t really for everybody. Though perched within a not-so-inviting location, people frequent the place to experience their al fresco dining and taste the sumptuous dishes on their list. The restaurant made quite a buzz to the city’s working class, and our curious palates told us to try. When we got a chance, we dashed to the restaurant, tagging along our Read more

The majestic, maria Cristina Falls

It was almost complete, and almost a mishap too. We weren’t completely unfortunate though – we finished our Cotabato-Iligan-CDO tour with all body parts intact and less injured. The palpitations started when our PU driver/tour guide in Cotabato Grand Mosque offered to bring us directly to Midsayap and insisted to take the road along the MILF territory. Though we followed all his warnings not to take photos and not to look at them Read more

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. The mosque, which stands in a well-landscaped and gated compound west of Cotabato City, is funded personally by Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, Read more

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

The Harvest Hotel Staircase

When things become really difficult, I kick the normal weekend routine and spend some quality time somewhere else, a place outside the metro but would not deprive me from the basic stuff such as the internet, a good place to eat, and a private place to relax and think over my decisions. The Harvest Hotel in Cabanatuan was one of the places that interest me. It was fairly new at the 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
