Effortless Flying by Wire at Bukidnon

If you are looking for some adrenaline-oozing adventure, or a way to relax and enjoy nature while hovering at 4500 ft above ground, then I recommend you should definitely try “flying by wire” aka Ziplining at Asia’s Longest Dual Zipline in Dahilayan Adventure Park, Bukidnon. Trust me, I was never really a fan of “extreme” heights, but this experience sparked the “crazy” in me. After that 840-meter stretch of “feeling-like-flying,” I was craving for more! Read more →

Stripping in Davao Airport

Most of the people I know have already stamps on their passports. Me? I have a passport with a “not-so-pretty-mug-shot-like” face and blank pages that are dying to have some out of the country ink to be dabbed over it. But well, that’s life. 🙂 Those who have gone out of the country could say that the security in airports are really tight… Maybe my experience in Davao International Airport (DIA) aka Francisco Bangoy International Airport share the same type of “tight” security.

Day 256: Drying Laundries at Ramon Magsaysay Park

Remember my dilemma at packing and me being a virgin at backpacking? I suppose this still covers it. Although, I am trying my best to fit into the culture of being an expert at traveling light. Haha! 🙂 At 8:45AM, we are now here in Ramon Magsaysay Park, just  near the Sta. Ana Wharf – probably just a 15-minute walk or a 2-minute tricycle ride. Read more →

Day 255: The 85 Indians on the Shore

“Oh Sudami Adi! Oh Sudami Adi!” shouted one of the eighty-five male Indians who are swimming, splashing, and throwing themselves onto the water at this 2PM scorching heat. Read more →

Day 254: Free Wi-Fi and Next Day Planning

I worked on our itinerary for our 6-day Davao adventure days prior to the starting date, November 21. We had several debates as to whether we will be going to Camiguin, or ditch the Water Rafting, or ditch the Camiguin adventure and go back to Davao then embark on another journey to Samal Island. Those debates made our trip very productive – since most of the pre-planned itineraries were crossed out, interchanged, and replaced as the days roll by. And we played the game of chance!

Day 188: They Said I Was Reaching For The Moon

“So, where do you volunteer, now that you’re a Registered Nurse? I heard there’s an opening in this hospital, are you planning to submit an application there? Will you be pursuing Medicine anytime soon? Wow. You’re a nurse… more dollars for the family then…” Read more →

Day 121: Last Day of Being 21

Two weeks of going about life. Two weeks of doing things out of my ordinary lifestyle. For two weeks, I was able to drink an expensive sparkling water from France, I was able to play several “good notes” on my saxophone with the right embouchure, I ran my first marathon, I spent thousands in one single day (which I hope will not happen again), I finished reading a novel in two days, I cooked some Italian food, I drank a fine glass of red wine on a hot afternoon while working on some designs, and I splurged myself with great tasting Chicago deep dish pizza and Starbucks coffee.

Day 107: Giving Money to Street Kids is Not a Good Idea

Before I thought I was being generous to them but thinking about it “practically” is not doing them any good. I know it sounds selfish but consider the fact that these kids should learn how to find other means of earning rather than just extending their arms, pout, and beg for money. Read more →

Day 104: Workstations While on the Road

I’ve been designing for several years already and I have been to some “comfortable” and “uncomfortable” places as well. You get to see those photos of a laptop and the crystal clear blue beach background more often for those seasoned digital nomads. I think I could say that I can probably work anywhere as long as there’s a strong internet connection. And somehow, the beach is not the only workstation you can have. Read more →
