About Me


I like to hang at the beach with a cold beer in my hand. Most of my travels have been local because there's a lot about our culture that I have yet to experience. Somewhere I heard it's nice to explore the local before going international. And it has been my travel principle. It's a good way for me to relax, meet folks and try out cool stuff. My local travel list is getting shorter and shorter so I hope to soon start traveling internationally.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Spelunking in Sagada. The limestone formations were awesome but to get there, we had to go through holes or climb up and down some huge boulders (if you slip, you will die as some are 10-20 feet from the cave grounds) and slippery mud which I wouldn't be able to cross, without the guide's help.
2. Ziplining in Davao and Bukidnon. Cold air, high elevation and awesome scenery. Left me never wanting to try ziplining in places like Tagaytay, Subic or where else.
3. Firefly-watching in Irawan, Palawan. The fireflies shines their brightest when red light is flashed. The planktons sparkles when you run your hand through the river water. It's a magical place.
