Scuba Diving: World War II Shipwrecks in Coron, Palawan, Philippines

I was a total advanced open water newbie when I flew to Coron, Palawan in early 2016. My buoyancy was still a work in progress that time so please bear with the dizzying shots (I’m still a newbie now though! 🙂 ). Clips were taken with Gopro Hero3, with no vid light, only red filter.  Coron is … More Scuba Diving: World War II Shipwrecks in Coron, Palawan, Philippines

Solo Travelers’ Bittersweet Fate (featuring Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines)

“Music saves the soul.” Play softly while you read. People think we are fearless. We are not afraid to wander to places we’ve never been; walking anonymously along the dusty road of a rural town and smile to people as if you’ve met a familiar face. We have all the fun in the world; we celebrate life with … More Solo Travelers’ Bittersweet Fate (featuring Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines)

Hiccups in Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines

Realization: indeed it is more fun in the Philippines. However, uplifting the archipelago’s tourism through purposeful ads here and there inviting millions of tourists worldwide is unintentionally desecrating the little towns too small to handle massive swarm of people. I felt like Sagada is one of the many little boroughs that has been imprisoned by this harsh truth. Ever … More Hiccups in Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines

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

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

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. It’s just we went to El Nido in December when the rain showers slightly spoiled our family trip. … More The Heart Pounding Sails – El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

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. Last December of 2013 (I know this post is a year toooo late, haha), my family and I flew to Puerto Princesa, Palawan. 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
