Boracay Summer Playground

“The waves curl right towards the white, sandy, shore and a young, chubby girl, jumps over the large current – beaming her glorious smile to the passing crowd. She scoops a handful of powdery sand, dabbles a bit of water to form a ball, and just when her brother came aclose, she docks.” Read more →

Up in the Air: Parasailing Experience

While we were strapped onto the harness, I was tugging the shirt of our operator with an anxious look on my face. I asked him to tighten the straps because I don’t really feel safe or even comfortable with my position. He then double checked the equipment and after a few seconds, we took off. Read more →

Silhouettes and Sunsets

What’s more beautiful than seeing the sunset vanish into the horizon giving out that pinkish-orange color to the sky and give you that sight of wonder? I adore sunsets.

In fact, other beaches are still yet to be discovered. Ever seen the movie The Beach? Well, there are several unseen places here in this archipelago that deserves a lot of credit. One of which involves beaches in Negros Occidental . Read more →

Amateur Snorkeling 101

Snorkeling is a very therapeutic activity. (It works for me!) Think of it as swimming and watching National Geographic or Discovery Channel all at the same time! Through snorkeling, you could see the marine life in a natural setting without the added equipment like that of Scuba Diving – it will be just you, the mask, and the snorkel. Basically, you are simply¬†floating on the surface and breathing through a tube while you adore the beautiful aquatic life. Read more →
