Island Mission Day: Strong waves of Testimonies

at

Growing up as a Catholic, I always hear the phrase “Spread the word of God”. Back then, it was just a phrase for me that I usually use in making my reflection for the Sunday Mass in High school. An assignment I need to pass and to conclude everything in my writing, I shamefully addressed it as a simple action. And here I am embarrassed of what I did in my teenage phase. With this in mind, I come to think how the apostles did it. It’s amazing how they lack transportation, yet they were able to give catechism…

What are your plans this Christmas Season? Volunteer and Join our campaign!

at

Christmas is a festive celebration here in the Philippines. We celebrate it for months, the decorations are all over since September. We can hear Christmas carols even before Halloween. Indeed, as a Catholic Country this is a special season. But do we all know what this celebration really means? I wish you answered the question with a YES.I would like to share with you about Christian Life Movement (CLM) campaign every December. But first you might want to ask “What is Christian Life Movement?”. CLM is an ecclesial movement approved by His Holiness St. John Paul II in 1994…

Visit the Hidden Lagoon in Guintarcan Island

at

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…

Complete Guide to make your 4-Day Experience in Siargao Worthwhile

at

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 on 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 that there’s a lot of things going on in this simple yet amazing…

Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp

at

Can’t deny it, but I’ve been into surfing lately. It was all started in Lanuza, then I got stoked in Mati, and tried it here in Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp in Dulag, Leyte. I don’t know what’s with this activity, and why it is so addicting so don’t ask me. Just try it and don’t ever blame me if you’ll be the next addict. Haha.I must say that Sabang Daguitan Surf Camp is a good place for beginners. And as a beginner who tried to surf bigger waves more than I can…

Mt. Kan-Irag: River Trek to Mountain Top

at

Since I’ve been doing a few hikes recently, I was expecting that trekking Mt. Kan-irag is as easy like my previous hikes. But I was wrong. It was longer, tougher, and definitely more challenging. Mt. Kain-rag also known as Sirao Peak is a 2,362 ft / 720 m mountain peak located in Cebu City. Many hikers go here for their preparation for their major climbs.During this day trek I was with my friends and our 65 years old guide Ta Ma. She started climbing at the age of 50 and since then she has been able…

Mt. Naupa: Chasing Sunset

at

What I love about Cebu is that I can enjoy both the city and the beauty of its nature. I can escape from the city in a few hours and have an adventure the whole day.Just like this day hike in Mt. Naupa.Mount Naupa is a 1,916ft / 584m mountain peak. It is the highest peak in Naga City. It is an easy climb and I’m sure anyone can do it. Even beginners. You don’t believe me? Meet Mae. She is the daughter of our guide, Sir Jude. She was with us during this adventure.This…

Amihan sa Dahican: Surf, Eat, Sleep, Repeat!

at

I’m pretty spontaneous. I don’t consider it as a good thing, but every time I say yes to adventures, I always hope that things would turn out good.Like this random travel to Davao.My initial plan was just to stroll around the big city of Davao. Without any plans, any activities, nothing at all. What happened was, my two friends already planned to go to a place called Mati. What the want to do is to surf.I like the idea because my first surfing experience was not that nice. So I went with them without any…

Osmeña Peak: Summit to Sea

at

Honestly, I was pretty excited about this trip because I heard a lot of good things about the place. Including the fact that it is easily accessible to everyone and it has an easy way to climb here without any hiking experience. Though I wanted to stay and have an overnight here, I’m still satisfied with my experience visiting Osmeña Peak.So here’s what happened.It was 2:30am, I’m on the road with new friends. They were all Ilongos. We’re on a nearly 2 hour trip to Mantalugon, Dalaguete. We’re about to climb…

Mt. Mauyog: The one day adventure

at

All it takes to have a good adventure is to say “YES”.Like this one day hike to Mt. Mauyog. Located at Balamban, Cebu and near from the historical Mt. Manunggal. A friend of mine, Daboy asked me to join this activity 2 days before the actual trek. With only two familiar faces I know, Sheina and Daboy, it actually went well.Let me tell you a little story, before meeting the whole group, Sheina and I accidentally joined another one, thinking that they were the group we’re about to trek with. While waiting for Daboy, we actually found…
