Sights Seen by a First Time Visitor in Manila Who Never Thought of Seeing Them

 

Find time to explore around. You’ll never know what adventure may lie ahead. It may be climbing mountains, swimming in beach resorts, visiting museums or strolling around boulevards. Go out, capture scenic moments. Learn and have a meaningful experience. Gather memories and gain knowledge. Trust me, they’re good for the body and soul. – Chasing Potatoes

 

I’ve been to Manila a number of times, but I never got the chance to go places. My routine was answering the demands of work and of sleep. Schedule was always not enough. Then one lucky day, one of my colleagues accidentally booked our flight back to Cebu on a Sunday, so we had an extra non-working day which was Saturday. Horrraaaah! We could explore and roam around the city but we have to dig our own pocket for the expenses, of course.

There are a lot of tourist spots in Metro Manila but these were the only places we visited due to limited time.

Let’s Go to Casino, Not To Play Poker, But To Climb It.

Let’s Go to Casino, Not To Play Poker,  But To Climb It

 

 

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.

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

 

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 »

The Mountains of Danao, Bohol : Your Easy Ticket to Witness Sea Of Clouds, Camping and Side Tours That You Probably Don’t Know  

 

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.

Quarter and One of Existence: My Unusual Way of Celebrating My Birthday , Hint: It Entails Fears, Dirts, and Darkness

 

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.

Sirao Peak ( Mt. Kan-Irag) : Hiking Up the Famous Peak of The Metro with A Glimpse of Falls and Flowers

The Tale Between Falling in Love and Letting Go

 

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 »

Telling 15 Beautiful Things Along the Journey

 

Come on, come on, let’s leave… Let’s go to the place that is beyond the ordinary and let’s search for the unusual. Let’s seek adventures, let’s leave for awhile this mundane life. Chanting this melody and harmonizing  positive vibes,  we would rather be called hippie than boring. We know life is unexciting without a little risk. We are the people of the “outside”.

It’s getting late.
Come on.
Come on.
We’ve got to leave. We’ve got to leave….
