Have you ever experienced a breathtaking sunrise that left you speechless? That was exactly what I felt during my recent trip to Panglao. Well not exactly a trip but a work-related kinda trip. I was just happy and proud with myself for being able to wake up early (only at that time, lols😅) because I am not a morning kind of person but you know, I just couldn’t leave this place without witnessing the glory of Panglao’s sunrise, that’s why when 5 AM hit the alarm I hurriedly went outside the room and rushed directly to the beach just wearing PJs, haha!😅 I looked at my phone and I was ecstatic and thrilled because it had full bars of battery and I could capture lotsa photos and then my phone malfunctioned and died and literally made me speechless as in literal ahuhuhuh!😭😭😭Continue reading “Sunrise at Panglao Beach: A Reminder to Enjoy Nature’s Beauty”

Trying Out “I LOVE BUCKET SHRIMPS” in Mactan With Stunning Views of the Sea and Sunset
Sometimes, satisfying my cravings for food by buying and cooking it at home is not enough. I still yearn for a better place to savor the kind of meal I desired — a place which would awaken my senses, where I would watch the sun set on the horizon, view the sea, the clouds, the sky as it changes its colors; and then catch the sight of the moon and stars as they begin to show off their radiance, observe the boats pass by, hear the ocean waves as they splash against the seawall, smell the salty breeze of the ocean, feel the refreshing air as it caresses my skin and, of course, indulge myself the flavors of these savory food that I have been yearning for a long time. Dzibah, ang arte lang, haha 🤣🤣🤣Continue reading “Trying Out “I LOVE BUCKET SHRIMPS” in Mactan With Stunning Views of the Sea and Sunset”
Tricycles and Places
Pwede papicture? (Can you take a picture of me?) – My friend asked me as she hurriedly gave her phone to me and then she entered hastily in a rela (also known as motorela), a kind of tricycle here in Bantayan Island. I, then, eventually took a snap and when she went back to me to get her phone, I asked why, of all things in Bantayan, did she want to be photographed in this tricycle. She replied that this tricycle in Bantayan was different from the tricycles in other places because it looked like a mini jeepney.
I kept mum and thinking “Bitaw noh, the tricycle designs differ from place to place. PALAWAN, BATANES, PAGADIAN…these places have different tricycle designs.” And that hit me to get this notion to collect photos of tricycles and other interesting modes of transportation in different places in the Philippines. So far here is my collection of photos of trikes.Continue reading “Tricycles and Places”
Chasing Sunset in the Street of Cebu City
This should have been a wordless blog because I just wanted to feature here the snaps I got when I was going to SM Seaside, Cebu City. It’s been awhile that I haven’t taken photos of scenes in the streets at the golden hour of sunset, my fave time of the day. I was just delighted with the photos I captured. But as soon as I made the post, I noticed that WordPress has already an Al Paragraph (Al Image as well). However, this is still experimental for the time being. I can make a content in just less than 10 seconds. The design is not very authentic! The design is not very human, HAHAHA! I am sad that blogs nowadays are maybe made by Al. I feel that they seem to be not genuine anymore. But this is the world now. I have to cope and live with its realities. I’ll just have to capture more and more photos and strive my very best to be good at this thing. Oh, jiva?? Haha! Anyhoo, here’s the sample of Al paragraph done by WordPress. What do you think? Will you use Al for your contents?Continue reading “Chasing Sunset in the Street of Cebu City”
A Sweet Thrill : A Sugar Rush Adventure
“Tell me your nasuya (envious) without telling me your nasuya ” Those were the words that kept on repeating in my head as I was in this situation. haaaaaalp!!!!!😨
My sister and I were dining at Sbarro in SM Cebu, and as we finished eating, she noticed a family with two kids, and one kid holding a balloon. As she scrutinized the sight, she realized it was not a balloon but cotton candy with a design of a head of a cartoon character. She tapped me and pointed at what she saw. And I mumbled my amazement, “How cute and adorable! I MUST GET ONE.“
TRYING OUT THE FAMOUS KUSINA NI OSTING IN CEBU
Why does PANCIT CANTON taste yummier when cooked by someone else outside the home than prepared at home?🤔
It was Friday night, having rendered “offertime” in the office at 11:30 P.M. several minutes away for the weekend of the Sinulog Festival, I was out with friends and had the chance to sightsee some parts of the festivities of the Sinulog in Cebu. We went to Fuente to see some of the “ganaps” (happenings) there.
