El Nido : Twelve Sunset Photos at Corong-Corong Beach

Sail Away
A day and a night cannot exist at the same time but they are linked in a way that one always gives way to the other. And when they meet, something magical happens that any witness knows to never waste any amount of time doing anything even if it is important because when there is sunset outside, you should do nothing but just sit under it.

In Between Pleadings

The pace here is so different... very much different from the chaotic world I left in Manila yesterday. Just after filing my Petition for Review with the Appeals Court in the afternoon, I hurriedly proceed to the airport to catch my almost midnight flight to paradise.

Having accustomed to the rat race of the legal profession and court room battles known as "pressure cooker", I wanted unfamiliar faces, fresh experiences, and a new self.

In El Nido, Palawan, after wandering through its idyllic streets and looking out over the beach from the balcony of a famous Cafe, I wandered westward towards the end of the beach, hoping to savor the scene I had imagined - foreigners in nothing but bikinis, beach side diners buzzing with conversation of languages I can barely understand.

A Day of Prayers at Monasterio De Tarlac

Jesus the Redeemer
As the song goes, it is a long and winding road. And once you left the city proper, the country side view of farmlands will greet you until you eventually ascend. And once you see biblical quotes beautifully planted on a road side, then, you are just few minutes away from the home of a relic from the holy cross - the Monasterio de Tarlac.

Davao Oriental : Journey to Mati

Dahican Beach is Love
Traveling by myself was a dream that had always both excited and scared me a little. I was not so fearful of all the horrible things that could happen to solo traveler in an unfamiliar place : robbery, murder, sold into labor. No, I was afraid of much more scary stuff, like what direction to look when I ate dinner by myself. Could I have a beer in a bar if I wanted to, and not feel like a freak? It was a challenge I just had to put to the test. So, I pushed myself forward, organize everything I can and travel on my own to Davao.

Quezon : Borawan Camping Trip

Oman is an Island in Borawan
Borawan Beach is an affordable travel destination in the Province of Quezon and is about six to five hours away from Manila. Some claimed that Borawan is a blending of two popular places Boracay and Palawan, which I personally feel is an overstatement. I rather agree that Borawan came from the word "Bulawan" which means gold, for this beach showcases one of the best golden sunrise that this part of the country can offer.
