Bucas Grande: It Just Happened

When the Dusk Settles

  I was given a chance to fly to Surigao City for free. And yeah, free is almost always good in my vocabulary. Problem is, I didn’t know what to do in Surigao and I had barely 3000 pesos in my travel fund. But what the heck, there’s no way I’m gonna say “no” to […]

The 3 Sides of Sinulog You Need to Experience


Sinulog weekend is finally here! I don’t think the word “”SINULOG” itself needs a lot of introduction as people from all over the world come to Cebu to celebrate what is arguably Asia’s biggest festival.

The Sunrise and the Lighthouse

Bebidas Coffee Bar: The Best Place to Chill in Ormoc City


About a month ago, I found myself strolling up and down the Ormoc City boulevard looking for a place to hang out. It was about 9 in the evening and I didn’t wanna crash this early on my last night here. I just wanted to get out of the hotel room. I didn’t really care […]

A Lesson on Contentment from an Unlikely Source

Home for the night

“Experience, Travel – these are as education in themselves” – Euripides I couldn’t even count the number of times I’ve told people how I understood more about life while exploring the 4 corners of the world than I did while sitting inside the 4 walls of the classroom for more than half my life… We […]

The Spectator's Tower

3…2…1. 3 plane tickets, 2 cancelled flights, 1 trip and at last I’m back to where it all started. If you’ve read my post “Siargao: The Journey, Not the Destination“, you’ll understand why.
