Broken things are beautiful too. Come to think of it, one of the visually pleasing things are ruins – they stand through time and still manage to look breathtaking. Last February, for work, I managed to capture several photos in The Ruins at Talisay Negros Occidental and admired the mansion for hours – including its glorious sunset. I mean, how can something so broken managed to look so beautiful? Then it hit me for a split second, just like the ruins, we must be partly damaged in order of us to stand strong.
One of the things I have always loved about travelling is knowing how rich the culture of a certain place is. December of last year, the tourism of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato invited over Bloggers and Media to have a few days stay in the said place. The farthest I’ve been to South Cotabato is I think the time I trekked my heart out to Lake Holon. I’ve always been curious about the other side of South Cotabato; the side where there is culture, the side where there are stories to tell, the side where there are local T’bolis who preserved their ancestral homes and the side where the land of dreamweavers live.

I don’t know about you, but as cliché as it sounds I experienced a “Love at first sight” with Siargao the moment I stepped foot on the Island. With its palm trees and sea breeze? Any beach baby like me couldn’t ask for more other than a coconut water in my hands and lots of sunscreen to slather in my body.

I always have had high expectations with the said Island even before it was a hit on our Instagram feeds. And to tell you honestly, Siargao did not disappoint! Continue Reading

And for that reason I kind of want to kick myself because even though I like outdoor adventures, trekking is not my cup of tea. Nonetheless, I give myself a big big pat on the back for doing this. So if you are not a big fan of trekking but still want to push it through, you might wanna grab a pen and paper and jot down my simple tips and tricks on how to survive trekking to Lake Holon.

One of my resolutions this year is to travel more around in my country – Philippines. And isn’t it Ironic i’m publishing this while i’m in abroad? Nonetheless, I guess it’s safe to say I need to explore my country more and indulge what my country has to offer right? Of course, while exploring the world in baby steps. If you ask me where to visit, I would straight up recommend the voted most beautiful in the world that is Palawan. Coron Island in Palawan is a safe haven if you ask me, if you’re looking for a complete R&R, Coron is the place to be. With a hefty amount of resorts, hostels, backpacker houses or you can even couch surf if you’re on a tight budget for petes sake! Continue Reading
