I have thought of trying my hand at writing for such a long time. I can honestly tell you that my prose isn’t  great. Maybe in real life, I am articulate (talkative is more fitting) that my friends often told me to try blogging. Finally, here I am, braving the odds. I could have started […]


It is a little  frightening to do things for the first time but braving it with friends could be less terrifying. In hindsight, this adventure is a daring feat that happened in the queen city of the south. Cebu is often a prime destination in the southern part of the Philippines. The city could be […]


In a quick escapade, we celebrated our brother’s graduation in Minanga Cove Morong, Bataan . The trip via NLEX-SCTEX took us 3 hours to a place nestled between the boundaries of Morong and Subic. We journeyed short and sweet while keeping it happy and exciting. Inside the car was already like a revelry, we were […]

Travel as much as you can to get hold of the stories you will narrate when you get old. Although sometimes traveling could mean breaking the bank, but when you travel with your frugal friends that you regard as family, the trip you’ve always wanted can be made possible while keeping it less expensive. Here’s […]


My brother begot a beautiful daughter couple of months ago leading to his decision to wed the soul who uplifted his own. It is inspiring on how his perspective transcended his old juvenile demeanor. It could probably be the weight of responsibility bestowed on him but it could be the joy brought in by the […]


I suppose something like traveling is a path to meet souls sharing the same love for outdoors. It’s more of an avenue to meet people eager to go  places and people wonderfully consumed by wanderlust. In another trip I joined, I met equally adventurous people thriving in their own professions and at the same time […]


Friend: I’m bored. Me     : Ditto. Friend: Baguio? Me     :   Ok! Spontaneity and carefreeness described my recent trip to the mountains. I didn’t wander around in typical Baguio scene, I felt bummed out to do the mainstream. I went there just to replace the picture I see every day, but I was honestly taken aback […]


Tranquil waters, blue skies, long stretch of pristine coastline and sand bars, diverse flora and fauna, and fresh breeze – these are just some reasons tourists frequent the beautiful island of Cagbalete. Experience one of the best walkable beaches in the Philippines, a five-hour drive away from Manila. Cagbalete Island is another haven in Quezon […]


A bevy of cool kids gathered to celebrate the summer heat. The weather was rather hot but this company was even hotter. Traveling with strangers builds character. These strangers’ disposition and everything seemed to jell swiftly. Everyone made friends for keeps as the birth of #TeamTolda was realized. One of the participants read my blog […]


Expect a colossal number of tourists tripping the Philippines’ tourist spots on holidays, especially the popular ones. All the more so, nothing can shun us from visiting a predetermined place not even a super typhoon? Our trip to Baler was almost cancelled due to Typhoon Chedeng (Maysak). Chedeng was a highly categorized storm, expected to […]

Feel at home while enjoying good food at Milky and Sunny. Food and Place Milky and Sunny […]
