“Music saves the soul. Play softly while you read.” No, I’m not broken hearted. Saw a reel of this cheesy song’s cover while in Siargao and it was playing in my head over and over again. So why not write a poem about it? LOL Sorry I didn’t kiss you but it’s obvious I wanted … More Sorry I Didn’t Kiss You – feat. Siargao, Philippines photo dump
From Malapascua Island, I took a motorised boat going to Kalanggaman Island. It costed me P800 for the day trip inclusive of lunch at the island. Located South East of Malapascua Island, Kalanggaman is most famous for its photogenic long sand bar stretching at the end of the isle when the tides are low. Apart … More A Day Tour to Kalanggaman Island, Leyte, Philippines
Malapascua sunset skies have swept me off my feet. The little island up in the north of Cebu province, brags its beautiful white sand beach and friendly locals. The home for thresher sharks, it also has beautiful dive sites teeming with life and a number of unique marine species that are rare to find. I … More Malapascua Island, Cebu, Philippines
This is the first time I was encouraged to take photos of the underwater world. The colors when the sun rays hit the reef, the tranquility, the vastness of the blue, and the weirdness of the creatures you don’t normally see everyday (not unless you work in the diving industry) – these elements are just … More Underwater world: Diving in Phuket, Thailand
“Music saves the soul.” Play softly while you read. She worships the euphoric sun and weeps with the melancholic rain. She spends her days staring at the infinite ocean and listening to the crashing of waves. She is made of sand and water; she is meant to swim away unreservedly. She is the island and … More The Secrets of a Modern Mermaid (featuring Anda, Bohol, Philippines)
“Music saves the soul”. Play softly while you read. I’ve not seen other places in Florida, but Miami is the most interesting Floridian city to me. The high rise buildings a few meters across a beautiful white sand beach and aqua blue water is an amazing sight. Plus, the notable Spanish ambience caught my attention. … More En El Medio de la Ciudad y El Mar – Miami, Florida Photo Album
“Music saves the soul.” Play softly while you read. 🙂 I just love these guys! I can’t remember if I have ever written any getaway that featured this group of sultry and clamorous ECE students in Lyceum Institute of Technology (presently Lyceum Of The Philippines University – Laguna). Actually, I can’t really remember if we … More Cheers To Never Growing Old! Pico De Loro Cove Photo Diary
“Music saves the soul.” Play softly while you read. You, woman, are a beautiful creation, whether you believe it or not. You’re as beautiful as the sunset sky and floating petals of dandelion blown by the wind. You have struggles that strengthen the littlest bones and smarten the tiniest cells that make you. You have unbelievable … More Mantra: Every Woman Is Beautiful (featuring Cebu, Philippines)
“Music saves the soul.” Play softly while you read. Nope! I didn’t go to Maldives in a boyfriend-girlfriend situation. I wished I were but that fantasy seemed far from possible during the first quarter of 2015. It was actually far from possible for the last 3 years. Lol. And I just can’t wait for that … More It’s not you, it’s me. . (featuring Maldives)
Denice, Aubrey and Bing, feat. Jhulz. . We changed the plans and hardly followed the itinerary. Upon reaching every destination, for a split second, we decided “extend!!!”. We chased the sun and burned our skins. . We drowned ourselves and gulped sea water. . We traveled from North to South and met people, some may … More Wild and Free – Cebu Adventure with my Crazies
“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 Valentine’s Day is only for cheesy couples. Wrong! 🙂 As early as January (or sometimes, December of the previous year), I contact all my single female friends (there’s actually not a lot, by “single female friends” you must already know I refer to my trusted travel buddies Myrna and Aubrey) to plan … More V Day? Let’s go girls! – Boracay, Philippines
FAILED. Yup, I went to Da Nang, Vietnam without checking the whether around October or November of 2013. Thinking that Da Nang, Vietnam is almost at the same level of Manila below the equator, I expected the same sunshine on that trip. I was wearing shorts and beach button up top plus my new pair of … More The Sun-kissed Tan I Dream to Get in Da Nang, Vietnam
If you could remember my pretty friend I traveled with to Siem Reap, Cambodia, I have known Vennus to be someone who’s familiar with awesome 5-star hotels and resorts around Singapore. . So there we were again. . 🙂 We hit the nearest beach from Singapore one weekend when we got bored. Rawa Safaris Island Resort is … More Prima Donnas’ Pulau Rawa, Malaysia Photo Diary
The real reason of our Bicol getaway is to see the Caramoan Islands in Camarines Sur famed by the tv show The Survivor Series of multiple countries. Most of the islets are not commercialized and inhabited which made the peninsula really ideal for the popular tv show.
On my first day in the office in Singapore in 2011, I asked a colleague, a Filipina too who arrived in Singapore just a couple of months before me, to which beaches she had been to around Singapore. She said, she’d been to only one yet – Pulau Tioman. . From that day, I had … More That Tranquil Little Island in Malaysia – Pulau Tioman
After the make-your-crotch-sweat trekking at Mount Pinatubo, the ladies including myself went to Olongapo to spend the night somewhere as we have a big beach adventure the next day (as they promised me, bwahaha!).
After I’ve known that, just like me, Vennus loves to spend a short vacation in beaches, I immediately, without hesitation, asked her to fly with me just a few weeks after I arrived Singapore. Since she’s been in SG a couple of years before me, she must have known (and wanted to go to) nice … More Beach Addicts in Langkawi, Malaysia
When i started working in Singapore, I promised myself that i will visit the famous Phuket, Thailand one day. I have always been in love with beaches and Phuket was one of the top in my list outside Philippines.
I have always admired the skills of campers surviving all the hardships outside the comfortable lifestyle… haha… Because somehow, I can’t.
Nope, Philippines was never a colony of Greece. I planned a short vacation back to Philippines and normally i allot one day for beaching with my highschool friends. Since i can only go out for a day, the beach must be near my place in Laguna – of course Batangas it is. I was browsing … More Sunburn at Fortune Island – with these Ruins of Greek Columns
