Things you miss when you back out from a Group Trip (Round South Cebu Adventure)

The more you fall in love with solo backpacking – of realizing that you can actually manage to survive on your own – the more it becomes difficult for you to develop relationship with others.

Of course, this does not work … More Things you miss when you back out from a Group Trip (Round South Cebu Adventure)

This is what Happens when your Drawing Friends Show up

In a few ticks, February would be on our doorsteps. While much has been said about this overly-romanticized month, for me, this yet opens another month of adventure given that we’d be celebrating four holidays in a row. HAHAHA.

While most despise the presence of children caroling on jeepneys, up on the highlands of Cebu City, away from the traffic of the highway, are people who rarely get to hear that ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’. It’s easy to label those clever kids as part of a syndicate, … More Christmas Carols with Bai Sibol in the Highlands of Cebu City

A Break from Adventure, Staycation at Century Plaza Hotel

We’re in a world that focused too much on achievements, on doing something to prove our worth. Though it’s essential to find our meaning in our limited days, fragile beings as we are, it’s difficult not to get jaded. We all need to rest. It’s our right to do so. This does not mean that … More A Break from Adventure, Staycation at Century Plaza Hotel
