I Found My New Travel Buddy

I Found My New Travel Buddy

Last year, also the second year of my travel, I applied for a life insurance for myself. After my agent reviewed my accomplished application form, it was a surprise when he gave me a tip to switch my answer to no that questioned my involvement in extreme activities like diving. Since I already did scuba […]

Summer Cruise: Of Chillin' Snorkelin', Corals and Scuba

Summer Cruise: Of Chillin’ Snorkelin’, Corals and Scuba

It was like another summer to remember in one of the Saturdays of September. Straight from my late work shift and caffeine-filled mornight, I went alone to San Luis, Batangas to experience discovery scuba diving. Even though this was my third time, the thrill and excitement were still present. My first two dives happened in […]

It is a known fact that Maldives, having endless pristine white sands and infinite blue waters, is one of the sought-after paradise destination of honeymooners.

32 Pinoy Movie Lines Rewritten For Travelers

One of my items in the bucket list is to write a screenplay for a movie. Of course, that break is an automatic road film. While I was mind mapping my thoughts on how to play around on my material, an idea on making a spoof of the popular romantic-comedy films rolled into one hugot […]

Places in the Philippines na Parang Pag-ibig

Places in the Philippines na Parang Pag-ibig

Call me hopeless hopeful hope fool romantic (or just call me maybe). Whenever I travel, I see love everywhere! Not from the couples who couldn’t afford to get a room while they release their romantic tensions. Not from another traveler whom I just met. But I find love in places. Metaphors of love are checking […]

If I Lose Myself X Clarity: The Great Southern Negros Occidental Adventure

This is the longest video I blogged yet because we had shared and captured plenty pretty moments. What do you expect if three from the group brought a GoPro camera each? With that, someone needed to buy an external hard drive to pool the 12 gigabytes of videos and photos. Because I have to watch the captures again, it took me longer also to edit and to put them in one cool video. No complains though. It is the best buwis-buhay trip ever.

We came to the Great Southern Negros Occidental adventure from various locations: Manila, Boracay, Iloilo, Cebu and Bacolod. The party started in Iloilo as we celebrated the continuation of Mhar’s Best Birthday Ever. We then crossed the sea between Iloilo and Negros islands (and for some between Cebu and Negros islands). We took a long bus trip from Bacolod to Bulata and the rest is an awesome history.

We scuba dived, kayaked, snorkled, partied in an infinity pool pretended like no one is watching, played Monopoly Deal card game, sipped few alcohol, paid visit to private sanctuary island of Danjugan, beach bummed in Turtle Island, and did anything fun in between.

15 YOLO Trips I Survived

15 YOLO Trips I Survived

For some reasons, we want to test our own limits beyond what our sober mind thinks. We take the chances. Because YOLO. Because opportunities missed are things we regret the most later. I have my own share of craziness in choosing exciting adventures too. Because greater stories don’t start with a “Once upon a time, […]
