Moalboal’s Best: Pescador Island and Sardines Run

at

One of the good parts about traveling is that I can meet a lot of people. Whether I’m the tourist or I’m the local; It connects us to one thing, travel. When we went to Hong Kong a few months ago, we met a local named Monique who went with us touring Hong Kong’s temples.

I believe that the people of a certain place makes my travel more…

Hong Kong Food Adventure

I don’t search a lot about the must try foods in a specific place, but I realized that food is also an adventure every curious mind should take. It says a lot about one’s culture and I want to experience and discover that in my travels.I might not be a foodie, but like everyone else I also enjoy food! We all know we can’t really say no to food and that’s why for me, food is also something to be explored when visiting a specific place.Travel gives me an opportunity to try things I…

Exploring Carnaza Island for Php1000

at

It was almost a month of unemployment and all I did was watch Netflix on weekdays and freedive on weekends. Though I enjoyed (and still enjoying) both, it was not the routine I wanted. To be honest, I do not like routine because routine is lethal.In the last week of August, I got a chance to break that routine and explored the island of Carnaza, located in the northern part of Cebu. From the island you can see the provinces of Cebu, Masbate, Leyte and Biliran. It was the perfect destination! The island was not touristy and it was…

Island Mission Day: The Lessons I learned while buying a fruit

at

This third Sunday of the month we went on a mission.This is what we do in a Mission Day. We go to an island where we feed and do catechism for almost 400 kids, we have talks for the youth, and we visit the houses of the adults. Also, the island doesn’t have a priest, so we always try our best to bring one and hold a mass on this day. It is a monthly activity that happens every third Sunday of the month. We’ve been doing this Mission in Caubian Island, Lapu-Lapu since 2012.Though…

El Nido and Puerto Princesa in 4 Days

at

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

at

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…

The Day we went to the Majestic Mt. Pinatubo

at

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…
