Cagbalete Jumpshot

I started to feel dizzy and uncomfortable when the bus became shaky all of a sudden. The clock above the driver’s seat ticked to 12 noon. I saw no signs of Lucena yet. Four hours had passed and we were still in the middle of a dusty and rocky road. Then I thought, where the hell are we. I immediately grabbed my phone and hoped that we were located under Read more

Tubbataha Reef: A World Heritage Site

You might be wondering why both Travel+Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler ranked Palawan as the world’s best island in 2013 and 2014 respectively. It wasn’t a recognition they made out of nowhere. It was due the fact that the island, or should I say this group of islands is, indeed, amazing. As a matter of fact, Palawan occupies two spots on UNESCO World Heritage site list and five more are still waiting for Read more


Looking a quick weekend getaway? There are some interesting beaches in Quezon province that you can check.

When the clouds dissipate at Kiltepan View Point, an equally spectacular surfaces

Sagada is one of the few places in the Philippines that preserved indigeneity. Pre-Spanish burial customs; freakish way to remember the dead (panag-apoy); barter change; strong influence of the local tribal leaders called Dap-ay; and strange planting, harvesting, and wedding ceremonies – all these are still part of the ways of life of Sagada people. Located in the central Cordillera Mountain Range, reaching it is…a bit of a challenge. But don’t think about the Read more

Baler Surf lessons

Baler is one of the awesome places that can easily be accessed from Manila. Yeah – it has a reputation of being a great surfing haven, however, it offers a lot more than that. To summarize, I have listed interesting things to do in Baler. Surf or Learn Surfing First in the list is surfing. Well, a large chunk of tourists visit Baler for that purpose. Professional or not, there are waves Read more

Lucban Church

From Kamay Ni Hesus, I took a tricycle to Lucban Church (a.k.a Church of Saint Louis of Toulouse). It was already past 6:00 in the evening, but I still wanted to see the church and try pancit habhab, a local delicacy. I never thought of the last public transport schedule to my next stop. All I have in mind that time was to complete my three objectives in Lucban. In Read more

Alibijaban Island Beach

From the moment I saw the photos of Alibijaban Island from Manong Unyol, I always to wanted to visit it – even if it means going alone. I made several attempts the past weekend, but a lot of things happened that eventually delayed my trip. So I marked Alibijaban Island an elusive destination. Last Saturday, I pursued my Alibijaban conquest. I boarded a Lucena-bound Jac Liner Bus in Buendia and then transferred Read more
