Basilan Island: The Eluded Paradise

I really did not expect that I will be able to feel the soil of Basilan Island between my toes. It was beautiful and surreal, but an eluded paradise.

Ultimate Zamboanga Trip

Teaser for my 2017 Travel Adventures

It was supposedly a late celebration for our annual Christmas gathering with my friends, but it turned out to be a hilariously crazy teaser for my 2017 adventures.

A Gratitude For 2016 Adventures

Before the year 2016 ends, I would like to honor it by looking back on the journeys it has brought me. Each year has always been a year of discovery and adventures.

Nine days – Six provinces

This past month of July, me and my friends temporarily left our corporate-city life for a short period of 9 days. We packed and travelled to the western visayas, the island of Panay. It was time for a short break and time to take a taste of fresh air. It was time to momentarily get…

Iloilo City: Queen’s City in the South
