SUMILON ISLAND | Summer's Bliss


I sat by the window, and before the lights were drown by darkness we saw this out into the sea. Ofcourse Peter dropped series of names, and none quiet fit to an island of that size, and near proximity to mainland Cebu. Three months after I was at Cebu again, and making my way to the south for Bluewaters Sumilon Island Resort. I called Peter who was at the Operating Room which I seriously doubted because it sounded he had some food in his mouth.  I tried to choked him with envy to no avail. Pft! Too much for torturing the stressed. Now looking at images of Sumilon Island, I wished to have bottled it up, and took it home with me.

A Different Kind of Brave | Three Years of Being Pinay Travelista



I waited. I've been waiting for the longest than I could remember. I took out my laptop at the  terminal with lazy-paced travelers around the departure area, and tried to get some work done. A distraction of some sort. As the hours went by the crowd thickened, and the passengers with probably the same flight as mine took most of the empty seats around me. I was having butterflies in my stomach, and I tried to drown them with coffee from a paper cup with bite marks on the rim.  It seemed to have aggravated it more.

WITHLOCALS | Connecting People & Culture

Planning for a Vietnam trip had me land on Withlocals that offers authentic experience for travelers through local hosts. Quickly I read through how booking a date would get me to share a meal with local hosts, and get to interact with people who are total strangers to me but definitely would be looking forward for my visit. Wouldn't itf be nice if visitors, and tourist would get authentic local experience during their stay in the Philippines?

MANILA | Intramuros + Luneta Park



What if you had a free day, and a willing date to tour you around, where would you go? Weirdly, I chose a walking tour, and it was what I got. A heavy breakfast was prepared while Justin, and the rest of the family listed places I may want to check out. He wanted to just drive up to somewhere else but my flight, and his required flight hours left us only a day to tour around. We had a good dose of walking in between hunting a parking spaces in the most iconic tourist destinations in Metro Manila - Intamuros, and Luneta Park.
