Boracay Island Part 3: Island Hopping


Island Hopping was the first thing on the agenda. Together with the two Swedish girls, and 30 or so people, we boarded a large boat that took us around Boracay Island. And here are the photos:     We had our buffet lunch at Crystal Cove Resort. The food was good and consisted of chicken, pork, vegetables, rice,…

Boracay Island Part 2: Second Wind Bed Bunk and Breakfast


After leaving the boat, me and Alexis, the guy from Spain, boarded the boat going to Boracay Island. We then rode a tricycle going to Second Wind Bunk Bed Breakfast located at the backside of the island. It was a good thing that there was an available bed for Alexis. Our accommodation was a dormitory type room for 8 persons….

Boracay Island Part 5: Last Day


On my last day on the island, I woke up early so I can catch the sunrise at Bulabog beach. Boracay is known for its sunset. But the sunrise at Bulabog or what the locals call “back beach”, is equally majestic. I then went back to the hostel to have breakfast. Alexis was already awake, and since his accommodation…

Boracay Island Part 4: Spider House


I first heard of Spider House from a Spanish colleague at work a few years back. So the next time I was in Boracay, I paid it a visit. From then on, it became my favourite spot to watch the famed Boracay sunset. Spider House has a chill and laid back vibe, away from the madness of Station…

Boracay Island Part 1: Caticlan via 2go Travel


Boracay again during holy week. Yes, call me unimaginative. But it was a last minute thing. Having no concrete plans on where to go, I surfed the internet to check flights from Manila to any destination that was affordable. But everything was so expensive. Then I checked 2go travel, and Boracay via Caticlan was still…

Les Miserables Manila 2016


Let me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of this musical. Next to Miss Saigon, Les Mis is my favourite. I fell in love with its plot and music when I was in college. I bought the CD of the broadway recording and memorized each song. I also watched the movie…

Summer Kickoff 2016: Silanguin Cove v2.0


My summer 2016 started last weekend with an overnight stay at Silanguin Cove, Zambales. The last time that I visited Silanguin was just last November 2015, and this visit turned out to be a more enjoyable one. It was another unplugged sojourn. With no electricity and mobile signal, it was goodbye to the outside world and all the…

El Nido, Palawan


On May 1, 2015, when all of my friends headed to Laboracay2015, I decided to go to El Nido. I hate Boracay at that time of the year. The crowd is unbearable. Besides I have been to Boracay already two times that year. The road to El Nido is not an easy one. Unless you have the…

Coron, Palawan


On my trip going to Boracay last January 2015, I was able to meet a solo traveller from Spain. He’s name is Mati. We decided that he can try to stay at the hostel that I was able to book. Luc… Source: Coron, Palawan

Bangkok and Phuket, Thailand


It was in the years 2012 and 2013, that I was able to visit Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand. Bangkok is much like Metro Manila, traffic is also very bad. But the temples and the food makes up for it. And Bangkok is a hawker’s paradise.     From Bangkok, one needs to take a…

Singapura


My visits to Singapore were on 2010 and 2011, during the time that the Marina Bay Sands was still under construction. On both occasions, I first went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia then rode a bus going to SG. One thing I remember about Singapore is that it an expensive city to visit, from accommodation, transportation…

HongKong and Macau, China


I visited Hongkong and Macau in February 2011 and 2012. During those times, the weather was cold and I loved it. I was only able to visit the usual touristy areas but I heard there are a lot of off beaten paths to go to. Well, there’s always a next time. Here are some of…
