Mt. Pico De Loro – Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas Ever since I’ve discovered the art of video-making in October, I’ve been putting one up on my Vimeo every month. This is my new year’s entry. I plan to grow in the craft more throughout the year. Which means I need to go on more adventures (wink).

VIDEO: Hiking Mt. Pinatubo

Is it nice in Mt. Pinatubo? A lot of people ask me this question. Well here’s my short answer: I’ve been there thrice. Mostly to accompany cousins from abroad. I hope that answers it. I recommend it mainly because it’s beautiful, but also because it fits the adventure and nature categories without much of the pain (i.e. […]

VIDEO: An Airbnb Birthday at Anvaya Cove

My birthday ideas for this year revolved around Airbnb listings. Seriously – a boat in Hong Kong, an island in the Philippines… There are a hundred extraordinary places to experience if you look around there.

VIDEO: Exploring Coron, Palawan

  It has been a long, long while since I’ve written anything around here. At times I feel like adult life has been pulling me away from the part of my soul that likes creating things just for the heck of it. But no. Not today. Two months ago, I “discovered” the GoPro. Of course I’ve known her […]

The Art of Giving

MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY, ANTIPOLO CITY – I am one of those people who declutter my life as often as possible. I believe in simplicity. Once in a while I open my cabinets to check for things I don’t foresee using in the near future, and see which ones I could either give away or throw […]

PINTO ART MUSEUM – Previously, I raved about how stunning I thought Pinto is, but I didn’t really show a lot of photos of the actual art inside. Although its exhibits may vary from time to time, here is a visual sneak peek of what was there this March 2013.

Opening the Doors to Art at Pinto

PINTO ART MUSEUM – I have lived in Antipolo since I was born. I’ve heard of Pinto maybe once or twice in my lifetime. What I didn’t know is that this place that people are talking about is a huge haven of art. I have never seen anything like it, and I’m quite surprised that […]

Budgeting for Malasimbo Festival

We only stayed overnight and went to Mt. Malasimbo for the festival in the evening so we only bought the one-night pass. But aside from the ticket itself, going to Malasimbo means having to pay for travel and accommodation at Puerto Galera. Here’s a list of things you need to consider when budgeting for Malasimbo […]

Stoned at Malasimbo

MALASIMBO 2013 –  It’s been a week since and I’m still raving about this charming 25-year-old singer, Joss Stone, one of the main performers in this year’s Malasimbo Music Festival. I wasn’t even a fan prior to hearing about her scheduled performance, but I’ve heard good stuff about the festival itself so I made sure […]
