The Secrets of a Modern Mermaid (featuring Anda, Bohol, Philippines)

“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)

Wild and Free – Cebu Adventure with my Crazies

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!!!”.

Trusting Buoyancy in the Raging Sea – Windsurfing in Anilao, Batangas

“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 I’ve known Rachel to be a restless traveler who, like me, worships the beach while embraces the pricking rays of the sun as if this combo is the best thing God has ever created. We’ve been planning our beach trip together for a very long time and for some reasons … More Trusting Buoyancy in the Raging Sea – Windsurfing in Anilao, Batangas

V Day? Let’s go girls! – Boracay, Philippines

“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?

The Heart Pounding Sails – El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

“Music saves the soul.” Play it first. . 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I still recommend tourists to go and visit El Nido in Palawan so they can be stunned with what Philippines has to offer them.

A Paradise in the Philippines – Puerto Princesa, Palawan

And there I was, letting my family experience the inexplicable euphoria I get when I see places I’ve never been.

It was a year after the Underground River got all the fame it deserved when this … More A Paradise in the Philippines – Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Our Dearest Unspoiled Beach in Calatagan – Burot Beach

Myrna, Aubrey and I, amazingly, have one common love – a serene beach. We prefer those unspoiled ones without hotels and restaurants where only a few people are sun bathing, than the beach which thousands of people visit to brag their 6-pack abs and bikini bodies. We have this common hobby to search for low … More Our Dearest Unspoiled Beach in Calatagan – Burot Beach

Sunburn at Fortune Island – with these Ruins of Greek Columns

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

Summer Lovin’ Part2 – Hundred Islands, Alaminos, Pangasinan, Philippines

Since we already visited Patar Beach in Bolinao, Pangasinan, we don’t wanna miss the chance to see the famous Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos, Pangasinan. The park, with 124 islands bragging its white sand beaches, blue clear waters, amazing rock formations and mushroom-like shaped islets, is so awesome;

When One Lies, The Group Goes to the Beach – Stilts, Calatagan, Batangas, Philippines

my highschool girlfriends, all five of us, seldom have this bonding moment  after graduation wherein all are present, worse when we were already working as we sometimes work on different shifts. so i decided to call them up; told them about this big announcement i can only tell at the beach on this particular day and only to … More When One Lies, The Group Goes to the Beach – Stilts, Calatagan, Batangas, Philippines
