el-nido-and-puerto-princesa-in-4-days

Last labor day, me and my family visited Palawan. It was a family vacation and though I was pretty excited about the fact that we will visit the most beautiful island in the world, I was worried. The reason? It was because of the planning part. I already knew that one way or another I will make our itinerary for this vacation. As I told you before, I’m not really good in itineraries, it stresses the hell out of me and though it was (and still is) not my cup of tea, I needed to figure out the ways…

into-the-deep-blue-my-first-freediving-experience

I’m in the deep. It feels quiet and cold and I instantly get why melancholy is associated with the color blue. But down under I did not feel any sadness nor being down. It was relaxing with a beautiful scenery to the point I questioned my whole existence if I was born in the right habitat. But even though my thoughts are startled and I tried to figure out where I belong, I’m still grateful I had and still have the opportunity to explore the ocean, the unknown beautiful world of water.How I got into this?So…

things-noticed-el-nido-know-visiting

El Nido is a paradise I’ve been longing to visit. I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about the place and I know you did too. We all know that it is listed as the most beautiful island in the world. With that title, my expectations were set so high. But as like all things, it has good and bad side. Not really that bad, but I know some of the things can get better.So here are some of the things I would like to share with you during my visit in El Nido. Hope I can…

24 hours in Macau

24-hours-in-macau

Everyone knows that if you will visit Hong Kong, you should check also its nearby neighbor, Macau. As suggested, we also did that during our trip. I was surprised that both locations were very near yet they have different vibes. And to tell you honestly, Macau gave me a familiar feeling.As we all know, Macau was once a Portuguese territory which explains its Latin culture in their establishments, even in their transportation, they have Portuguese announcements which Hernan could understand (and I can’t). It was amazing how the history of the place reflected in the area which I…

day-went-majestic-mt-pinatubo

We started at Tagaytay and found our way to Laguna. We went to Laresio Lakeside resort and Spa. They have tons of water sports activities, but we were not able to try. I guess because we were tired or maybe the lake is not that inviting. It was nice to watch groups of young people having fun, most of them probably college students. My energy was not that good because I lost my voice. Maybe because I laughed so hard during the wedding we attended the day before.After Laresio, we went to Manila and stayed at the condo we…

Early this year I joined Cebu Blogging Community where I met new people who also share the same thing that I enjoy the most, blogging. It was and still is an overwhelming experience to be part of this community who supports and encourages all members to create good content for their own blog and niches.For a couple of months as a member, I never participated in any events and invites in the community posted in the group. (Though there’s one movie event but it was for all not just blogger. The good part was, it was free! :D…

presenting-surigao-del-sur

College was a big change for me, maybe also for others. Many students came from different places, and using different languages. For example, in my dormitory, we came from all over the Philippines. From Leyte, Samar, Bacolod, Masbate, Zamboanga and Palawan. It was a chaos for me as a province girl, now living in a big old city.First day of class in college, and everyone needs to introduce themselves. Name, from what school, and where you came from. Of course I got my turn, I introduced myself and told the whole class I’m from Tandag, Surigao del Sur…

this-is-camotes-islands-in-cebu-10-places-not-to-miss

I’ve been living in Cebu since I was college. Almost all those years I was just in the City, trying to survive in the university. I started to know the place even more the moment I got out of school. Since then, exploring the whole province has been one heck of an adventure. Until now, Cebu never fails to surprise me, in every destination, it offers a different perspective and a different fun. One of the places I was surprised with is this little group of islands called Camotes.The name itself is intriguing. It sounds like Kamote, which…

visit-the-hidden-lagoon-in-guintarcan-island

Last year, I was part of an adventure where we went island hopping for four days. It was epic. And since then I’ve tried to join these adventures organized by Outdoorsman’s hub, but it seems the universe is not on my side, or should I say my schedule was a mess. I keep on skipping those activities, until the day we went on a 2-Day trip to Guintarcan Island.Does the island ring a bell? No. I thought so. Because this is not a common destination. In fact, I never heard of it until the Facebook group…

Two months ago I visited Siargao and until now I still can’t move on. No days have passed without thinking when will I go back. I’m not sure why, but what I know is there’s something in the island that made me fall in love with it. Maybe it’s the waves, the people, the vibe. I can’t specifically point out what it is. Maybe the whole package the island can give.  I don’t know. What I know for sure is there’s a lot of things going on in this simple yet amazing island…
