A Kayak And A Drowning Woman

I opted to try kayaking at the Linaon Bay in Negros Occidental. It was my first time and I definitely sucked at it – BIGTIME! The bay stretches at about 4 kilometers having those calm, wave-less, waters. It has an average of probably 15 to 18 feet from the surface to the floor. Well, it sounded like  a great opportunity for me to practice and hone my “kayaking” skills, right? Read more →

Day 54: The Guy Named Nathan

I can’t believe I shared a sunset with a total stranger, on the deck of the boat, with a picturesque scene just like in the movies! It was really not that romantic, although my mind was swirling with different thoughts like “Someone special should be right here next to me, and sharing a view over the horizon between the two islands – together!!!” Then my “romantic trail of thoughts” disappeared when he asked for my number… 😛 So, I had this defense mechanism, and I said “Sorry, my boyfriend will get upset if I gave you my number.” Oops. I lied. 8) Then I left. Read more →

Day 49: Chasing Infinity

While we were having a nice conversation along the road, under the awning of a little cafe, my father was wondering why I was always hyped, always dressed up for an adventure, always having that smirk on my face. He asked me where I was headed to. I said, “I’ll be going somewhere fascinating.” Then he looked at my hand, where the camera was strapped on. “Ah! You’ll be taking pictures again!” he said in vernacular. Read more →

Hidden Oasis in Panglao Island, Bohol

Often times, when we speak of “paradise,” we would think of a beach in Maldives, or maybe even Bora Bora. The Virgin Island of Panglao is something we should all be proud to call our own little paradise. Locals call this uninhabited island as the “Hidden Oasis,” popularly characterized by its crescent shaped sandbar and its luscious palm trees sitting on white sand that envelopes it. Read more →

Day 43: Burning Passion

Today I learned about “passion” – doing things in life that you actually enjoy. For me, passion is falling inlove with what you do, pursuing those things that make you happy, and above all, it gives you that “purpose of living.” I mean, you take control. Read more →

Day 42: Experiences Put Into Words

It is great that I am almost done with the Bohol blog series, I only have three posts left before working on Cebu, Aklan, Capiz, Guimaras, Negros Oriental and Occidental, Manila, and lastly, Iloilo. May will be another month of trips and I hope I could finish these backlogs sooner. Read more →

Bohol Afternoon: The Joy of Packaged Tours

The minute you set foot on Bohol land, you will be the center of attention among the locals, marketing to you their good packaged tours for an affordable budget. They are like swarms of excited people, waving their hands at you, maintaining eye contact, and of course, pointing at their vans awaiting for you to nod your head for a sign of approval. They sure are interesting. Read more →

Day 41: Learning The Basics

I am not an expert in blogging, although I did multiple blog entries in some of my websites, which I do for fun and for my writing freedom too – but those are not really “niche articles.” Just like learning how to solve complex mathematical equations, I placed myself as the student of those who are what I call “professional bloggers.” I learn from them – from the structure of an article to the labeling of photos to the inline links, it was like I was in Journalism class all over again.
