Why Chasing Potatoes?
I’m Chasing Potatoes. I chase time and opportunities because just like round potatoes they roll and get lost. I chase them to store memories to last a lifetime. I make haste, running after them, fearful that they might be gone. That’s why I go places on land or in water.My story tells about the journey of chasing time and saying yes to wonderful opportunities.
You may have seen videos and pictures of this island being shared a number of times on social media accounts. You saw how beautiful the beaches here are, how pristine the place… how secluded this island is. And you may have also noted what a perfect getaway for tropical destination this island is, etc., etc., etc. And then you may have read blogs about it and you may now have the idea how to get there, etc., etc., etc.
But what I’m going to showcase about Carnaza Island are not just its physical beauties but also our experiences which made this island escapade interesting and different from my earlier escapades. This account reveals why this escapade is one of my unforgettable trips ever. New treasures were found, additional keepings to my wanderlust chest.
The emotional stress I’ve garnered lately made me loss my sanity. Some friends leave without even saying goodbye. Conflicts and changes occur. Well, they happen many times, yeah, sort of permanent already. Everything is just becoming depressing and disheartening plus the volume of work that is piling up. Time is getting limited and the demand for completion is so high. UGH! If only I could prolong time I would be accomplishing much, huhu!Read More »
Ever since that picturesque Mount Pulag Sea of Clouds sprouted in social media, I have been dreaming to witness that kind of natural spectacular wonder. But Mt. Pulag is far from Cebu and it requires a great deal of strength and stamina in order to reach its summit. Considering myself a weakling and lethargic one, I gave up the idea of climbing Mount Pulag.

After having no trips and wanders for weeks, I thought I had already lost my sanity. Boredom had caused this sort of craziness that somehow made me converse with myself.
“I wanna go out again. . .(Where?…)
I long to have an excursion with friends. (Where!?…)
I yearn to be outside again away from the muddled sight in the city.(But where?…)
It would be a great idea hiking and climbing mountains again like in Osmeña Peak (probably! . . .) or perhaps chasing waterfalls like the one in Kawasan Falls (sounds good to me…) But not in the South again!!!! … How about in the north! But wait. Are there mountains there? …(Well, well, yes!) How about waterfalls? ( Absolutely there are!…)”
Birthdays are special days for most of us. Some of us may celebrate an additional year of existence by having a get-together party with loved ones; others may just treat or spoil themselves with sweet things of indulgences. I usually celebrate my birthday in a simple way with family and friends and sometimes I buy stuff as a memorabilia of gratitude for another year has been given to me to live my life again in this complex yet wonderful world.
One lonely day I was wandering under the vast cerulean skies with the effulgent sun giving me an unusual radiance. With that I knew that this day would be extraordinary. And as I continued my musings and wanders, I was also looking at the sea of faces that have passed by me, curious about their own stories and dreams. Some faces were drowned by my own oblivionRead More »
If you have been following me on my blog or other social media accounts, you may have noticed that my photos were mostly produced by DSLR or rather they were images from my action camera. I have a smartphone, too, but I was not enticed to use it for my travel photography because it was not able to produce photos that reached the level of my standard, the worthy to be uploaded-kind. But everything changed when I got my Huawei P9. Initially, I never believed smartphones could do what DSLR could, but with the advent of technology and phone application nowadays, smartphones can now produce good quality photos. Just like Huawei P9 which has a dual camera with superior lens partnered and co-engineered with Leica. What could be better than this? Right?
Don’t get too comfortable. Challenge yourself to live life away from your comfort zone. Go out. Explore outside, for the world is vast. Fill your life now with exciting adventures. Chase new experiences. After all, what’s the point of living, if you won’t even take a risk?
“Keep calm and get your hair done for life is short to have a boring hair.”– One dreary day, I surfed up the net and browsed news feed in my social media accounts, until I saw that quote. It had no impact on me at that time. I ignored it because I do not care much about my looks. Yup, I simply don’t care much especially about my hair. I just ponytailed it up and it was good to go. But then, Read More »
