Underground World of Lahab Cave, Capiz

To tell you the truth, I am never really a fan of caves. I’m not a claustrophobic at all but the thought of being stuck inside a hollow space with weathered rocks around was utterly creepy. Not to mention that caves are essentially dark – imagine the creatures crawling inside! Read more →

Invigorating Nature of Don Salvador Benedicto

On that very moment, I stood there and glanced on the verdant slopes of Don Salvador Benedicto. The chilling breeze blew through my hair as I patiently waited for the azure clouds to give way for the sunlight. The wind whistled through the air and slowly, streaks of light from the sun flashed upon its unspoiled perfection. Read more →

Nogas Island in its Splendor

“Tall and tan and young and handsome, the boy from Ipanema goes walking, and when he passes, each girl he passes, goes ‘ahhhh.’ When he walks he’s like the samba that swings so cool and sways so gently, that when he passes, each time he passes, I go ‘aaaaaaaahhhh.'” Read more →

Roxas City: Palina Greenbelt Ecopark

Just 5 kilometers away from the city proper of Roxas, you’ll be entering a realm of 8 species of true mangroves (some are already century-old), 34 species of birds, 13 species of fish, and 64 species of shellfishes all residing in a coast at Sitio Cablatan, Barangay Cagay. Read more →

Firsthand Experience of the Virgin Liktinon Falls

Huge boulders very similar to those in the Jurassic Era were one of the hurdles we had to endure before reaching the Liktinon Falls. Multiple free-flowing streams of river water seeped into my shoes as I tried maneuvering over one boulder to the next. Tucked inside a vast forest, this little treasure awaits visitors to have a soothing dip in her natural pool after a long, challenging, and tiring trek. Liktinon Falls is what the municipality of President Roxas, Capiz will soon boast for.

Hagimit Falls: Discover the Sound of Serenity

Sitting quietly in an unspoiled forest, there lies a cascading waterfall that is surrounded by luscious green, vegetation, tall, enchanting trees, and flourished with the sound of nature that you once heard in a “How to relax” audiobook. Hagimit Falls is a small waterfall with several natural pools of cool, aqua water, gifted in the island of Samal. Read more →

Day 96: Visiting The Critically Endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle

I have visited this female sea turtle several times already. She’s still the same creature years before: flat body shape, flipper arms, saw-like shell margins, sharp curving beak, soft puffy neck. Such an incredible work of evolution! Playing with her was such for a short while made my day despite being tricked by bogus drivers today. Read more →

Mangrove Forest to Thrive in Punta Taytay, Bacolod

It was lunchtime then and we were having Calamares, Grilled Squid, and Oysters at the Viewing Deck, overlooking the Panay Gulf – staring at the Island of Panay and Guimaras. On the far right of the coast, I saw a woman, bending her body towards the earth. “What is she doing?” I asked myself. Immediately, I finished my last bite, washed my hands, and went down for a walk.

Janiuay, Iloilo: Basking in The Ambience of Damires Hills

This is a review about the talk of the town, I guess. I was curious of that “amazing place”that they have mentioned. And you won’t even believe a thing that I just wrote on the title of this post, right? The cool thing about this adventure is that we had the whole place to ourselves and relaxation is really our mantra of the day. Oh yeah! Read more →

Malayan-Indian Tradition: Seaweed Flour

Conversations coming from experiences in Belize, Central America are quite rare to have with someone whom you just met for a brief moment. His tales of hidden paradise and unforgotten cultures, caught my attention as I was holding on to a seaweed freshly caught from the shore – locally known as “guso.” I enjoyed talking to a man who might have been to most parts of the world and my eyes we’re like puppy dogs’ that were so eager to know more.
