Day Tour in Intramuros: The City Within A City

I use my social media accounts as an outlet for my creative needs. I don't find myself especially talented but at the same time, I have this energy that motivates me to create something from what I observe. Here is what I decided to do...

It's Raining Cats & Dogs in Mt. Daguldol

My last climb for 2017 was unplanned. I thought that I wouldn't be able to hike anymore but my sister insisted that we do this hike before the year ends. Mt. Daguldol was not even on my list of mountains to visit but the itinerary looks promising so I joined.

Do You Pay Attention? Series 2

         I was walking along the parking lot and I noticed the plants growing nearby. It's been raining a lot this week and these small flowers appear to be very resilient of the weather. I caught a bonus by spotting a grasshopper on top of a blade of grass. Tis' a lovely day.

Summer Never Ends in Boracay, Malay, Aklan

    Every year my extended family and I always find time to travel together. This year we were lucky to get free hotel stay and promo airfare. This is my first time to visit the world-acclaimed island. I finally understand why it's so popular. The long stretches of beach, super fine sand and the crystal clear water. It is indeed a summer haven. Consequently, our stay happened at the same time tropical storm Paolo was passing by the Philippines on its way to Japan. Although it didn't really affect our travel but there were sporadic rain showers and strong winds.

The grotto is perched on top of really sharp rocks. The waves hit these rocks and
pointed edges make these droplets of water. I happen to catch one before it drops.

Walking On A Cloud in Mt. Ulap

     My fifth and so far the best mountain I've climbed is Mount Ulap in Benguet. The weather is perfect. It was breezy and cool but not too cold that it bothers you or too hot that it sticks. There are three peaks for this mountain. Even if it is just considered one mountain, it is by far the longest time I've spent climbing and I have four already in my belt by this time.

      I didn't get to take lots of photos because I was busy climbing but when I have a chance or if I find something that catches my eye, I documented it.

      So here you go folks, my collection of Philippine flora that I've documented while walking on a cloud in Mt. Ulap.

Do You Pay Attention?

      When I walk along the busy streets of the metro, I notice a lot of people not paying attention. In the train, almost everybody is in front of their mobile phones or listening to music. In the restaurants, people are not talking to each other.

Let's Paint The Town During Color Run 2017

Every year its tradition for my sister and I to join at least one marathon. I have conquered the 10K challenge but I had to go back to 5K because that's the longest this run gives. I only joined this run because a friend egged me to do so.

I did my best to run seriously but there were too many distractions and too many temptations every kilometer. So after two kilometers of hesitation, I decided to join the bandwagon. However, I did not stop for the usual traps. No dear, I stopped for the chance to take photos of the flora that usually is inaccessible to me as a pedestrian. The fire trees in red, orange and yellow that line the streets. How I wish they will grow more of these trees. Our country might even have something to compete with the cherry blossoms. Don't believe me? Wait, till you see these photos then...
