CAMIGUIN | The Island Born of Fire

This is my first time to set foot in Mindanao. As most of the people spend their vacations on different popular destinations in the Philippines, my family and I chose to explore the treasures of Northern Mindanao. To begin with my 5-day vacation the first stop was Camiguin - The Island Born of Fire.


TAYTAY RIZAL | Club Manila East Resort + CME 2011 Surfing Cup

Summer heat is officially ON!

Where is your destination to actually escape this intense heat? A lot of us prefer to cool down in out of town beaches and other prominent summer destinations in the country like Bohol, Palawan, Boracay, Davao and the likes. Going to these places means digging a hole in your pocket and extra effort doing your researches. Fun activities and definitely awesome experiences would then be the result. 



After months of waiting for this concert, I finally saw The Script perform LIVE! The concert was held last April 16, 2011 at Araneta Coliseum, Cubao. I was seated on the right wing of Upper Box A and somehow got a good view of the stage. The concert was really awesome with the crowd singing along in every song. I thought the night was already over after they sang Rusty Halo but the band came back at the stage and finished the concert with their 2 famous hits – For the First Time and Breakeven!

You Won’t Feel a Thing

QUEZON + TANAY RIZAL | Kamay ni Hesus - Regina Rica

Jesus and Mary. This is our theme for our 2011 ritual for this lenten season. Year on year, we do Station of the Cross wherein we visit 7 churches and say two prayers on each - its like a Visita Iglesia with Station of the Cross on the side. This year we made it different.

My family decided to do the Istasyon on the the two renowned places for worship - Kamay ni Hesus Shrine in Quezon and Regina Rica in Rizal. It was a long ride going to Quezon Province and Tanay Rizal.


BOHOL | The Extreme Danao Experience!

Looking for something extreme? Then Danao Adventure Park is the place to be. This is the most intense activity we did in Bohol. A great deal of heights await you in Danao. The park offers ziplining, bungee jumping, trekking, ATV rides, caving, rapelling, root climbing, cable ride, river exploration, wall climbing, camping and village tour.


BOHOL | Wow Panglao!

My flawless day in Bohol was defined by a breath taking sunrise, dolphin watching, snorkelling in marine sanctuary, crystal blue water, white sand and an afternoon at the hammock. This is one experience you can find perfectly in Panglao.

BOHOL | Travelling Around the City

It was a long yet eventful day. Smiling tarsier, miraculous water, unusual geographical formations, humongous python, appetizing food while enjoying scenic views, underground cave, bloodcurdling bridge, colorful butterflies and historical church - all these in just a day. This is our itinerary for the Bohol City tour.


BATAAN | Turtles + Coral View Beach Resort

The most freedom that anyone have is when you didn’t have any - no worries, no expectation, no boundaries, no deadlines, no pressures. It's a good feeling that you are free - even in just one aspect of your life. More so, its a wonderful feeling that you've been an element of how one creature achieve its freedom.

On this particular day, January 29, 2011, I just did. I became one of the reasons why these little turtles were now free. 

It was a special opportunity for me to visit the Pawikan Conservatory Centre in Morong, Bataan. This is the home of rescued turtles and the nesting site of pawikans.


CALIRAYA LAGUNA | The Perfect Recreation

Zip lining, wall climbing, horse back riding, swimming, fishing, jet skiing - name it, they have it! This is the impression that I've got when I first saw their advertisement. True to its claim, Caliraya Recreation Center got almost everything you need for outdoor activities. This resort in Lumban, Laguna settles beside the well-known Caliraya Lake. The facilities they offer are perfect for group activities that can bring physical and mental challenge.

Going here is only 2-2.5 hours from Metro Manila. You can take either the route in Antipolo or the usual SLEX. If you are coming from North or East of Metro Manila, I suggest you take Antipolo Route. Personally, I also prefer Antipolo because there are no toll fee charges when going to Caliraya. 

Upon reaching the resort parking lot, guests are required to ride the service boat in order to cross the lake. Do not worry about car safety because they are guarded by the resort staff.
