My Experiences in My Journey to Freediving Which Probably May Entice You to Try
“I can’t sink myself.” Those were the words I uttered when my friends bade goodbye as they went to the deeper part of the ocean. Stuck on the shallow water , hit by the waves rushing to the shore, I felt nothing exciting for I saw only the usual and the ordinary. (like duuuuh!)Read More »
I’ve been living here in Cebu for about ten years now, but I have not realized one of my strongest desires. You may laugh at this revelation for this wish of mine is just a simple matter to some. . I have already summited a number of mountains here in Cebu but I haven’t still made it on the top of the highest peaks here in the Queen City of the South. Yes, I haven’t climbed Osmeña Peak. HAHAHA! Now I’m laughing because this post is not even about Osmeña Peak. You may think I’m off-tangent, but I’m not, for the subject of this post stands on the same pinnacles as Osmeña Peak.
I’m sharing this now because I have partly stepped foot on the highest highlands here in the province of Cebu, although I have not jaunted up that famous Osmeña Peak. At least, my strongest desire has been partially fulfilled when I reached Casino Peak.
I just had my first ever major climb on the highest highland of Eastern Visayas, the Alto Peak also known as Mt. Aminduen. But before reaching Mt. Alto we also summitted its neighbor, Mt. Janagdan, a dormant volcano. This volcano boasts of its stunning and enchanting Lake Janagdan located on its crater.
Here’s my VLOG on how my friends and I climbed Lake Janagdan. Spoiler alert, something happened to me at 7:02. Check this one out so that a similar incident will not happen to you in case you would want to try climbing there as well.😂😂
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 »
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?
