island-mission-day-the-lessons-i-learned-while-buying-a-fruit

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…

siquijor-3-days-itinerary

This is a long overdue trip. We’ve been planning to visit Siquijor last year but we did not have the chance to do so. But at last, in the busy month of June where I tried a lot of things for the first time including freediving, visiting this mystical Island was part of the awesome list.In every trip I’m embarking, I always inform my parents where I’m going. I know that they are very supportive in my endeavors and I don’t want them to worry so much. And so, Informing them does not always mean…

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…

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…

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…

the-cause-and-effect-of-the-things-i-should-have-done-before-my-international-travel

When I think about first international travel, over preparation comes in my mind. It’s because the excitement and curiosity collides when it’s our first time to try new things. But for me who tends to forget little details, it’s totally obvious that during my first time abroad, I still get some lapses and oops during the preparation phase.These lapses and oops are actually not helpful. I was annoyed, stressed and I wasted my time because I did not manage to do a little search on my side. Laziness has its own downside I tell you. But…

Hong Kong Vlog!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZObOxQ1JZOkI really don’t know how to introduce Hong Kong in this blog, or how I will share my whole experience. The first idea that pops in my mind is to share our itinerary and put some details with it. However, we did create one, but we didn’t follow it. Haha. Our tour was such a mess because we just stroll around and go wherever we want to and just get lost and explore with the help of google maps. For me, it was actually better exploring Hong Kong freely and try…
