How to Get to Don Salvador Benedicto

If you haven’t read my insights about Negros Occidental’s Don Salvador Benedicto, I suggest you read Invigorating Nature of Don Salvador Benedicto to get acquainted with its unspoiled beauty. 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 →

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.

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 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 →

How to Spend 12 Grueling Hours via Sea?

You hop on board, find your deck, put down your things, get some blankets, and then it has been only 15 minutes. What happens for the rest of the 11 hours and 45 minutes on a 12-hour boat ride to somewhere amazing? Iloilo to Cebu takes exactly that long to travel via sea. 😀 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 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 →
