Boracay Chronicles 2016: Belated Summer

It felt like forever since I last enjoyed the shores of Boracay and it’s about time to return!  I may have missed summer, but any time is a good time to be at one of the best beaches in the country.

West Coast Chronicles: Santa Monica Beach

The Philippines has some of the best beaches in the world so I’ve never really had the urge to look for one abroad.  And I definitely didn’t expect that the first beach that I’d actually step onto outside the country would be in the United States!  Here’s my first beach experience outside the Philippines. This…

Weekend at Puerto Galera

Summer will not be complete without at least one visit to the beach.  Boracay would be the obvious choice for many, but since all flights are fully booked (which means the little island would be crowded, which I hate), we didn’t bother dreaming of going there.  Instead, we decided to go to the much closer…

Back on the Trails of Hamilo Coast: Salomon XTrail Run

After a long time of hiatus from joining races, I finally got back.  And it was Salomon XTrail Run that got me back on my feet for my first race of the year.  I can’t say no when Salomon invited me, and I can’t miss the chance of running in one of my favorite places…

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Beaches of Panglao

After having our delightful breakfast at Metro Center Hotel in Tagbilaran, we were off to Panglao Island.  When you put the words Bohol and beach together, Panglao would most likely be the place that would come on top on people’s minds.

Throwback Thursday: Pangasinan Adventures

I’ve no idea who started this “Throwback Thursday” (TBT) idea, but I think it’s nice to look back on some old fond memories every once in a while.  My first TBT would be one of my first great adventure with friends in the province of Pangasinan, way back in 2002!

Sneak Peek at the Trails of Hamilo Coast (Salomon XTrail Run 2013)

Last February 23, 2013, yours truly alongside with other runner bloggers and the members of the media were invited by Salomon Philippines to have a sneak peak of the trails of the forthcoming Salomon XTrail Run to be held this March 23, 2013 in Hamilo Coast, Pico de Loro, Nasugbu, Batangas.  If you plan on…

Bohol + Cebu Quickie: Alona’s Allure

Bohol wasn’t originally part of my itinerary, but since I had some “spare time” I might as well use it to visit one of my most missed places since it’s just a two hour ferry trip from Cebu.  And this time my Bohol itinerary was clear: the beach!

Boracay (Mis)Adventures: A Day in Paradise (Part 2)

Rains have been pouring all over most parts of the Philippines when we arrived in Boracay, but heaven must really be on our side as the dark cloudy skies of the past few days had actually cleared up, and we were basking under the tropical sun of Boracay!  What else to do but enjoy the…

Boracay (Mis)Adventures: To the Island! (Part 1)

After two long years, finally, I was able to step back into the shores of one of the best beaches in the world, Boracay.  It may seem like an ordinary quick getaway, but adventures seem to follow wherever I go.
