Naga City | Peñafrancia Festival 2014

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Festival is an integral part of Philippine culture. It displays celebration, devotion, passion, values and heritage. In the Philippines, there are numerous festivals being held every year. And fortunately, I’ve had the opportunity to witness some of those.

Seeing how grandeur and celebrated festivals that I’ve been made me interested to experience more of my country’s festivity. After attending a major festival few years’ back, I made a pact to myself that I must witness at least one each year. Two years had passed, and I had able to fulfill my promise. In fact, just September of this year, I’ve got the opportunity to experience another great festivity. I was able to see the most celebrated festivity in the Bicol Region, the Peñafrancia Festival.

An Impromptu Trip to Subic

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Isn’t it delightful to have a weekend trip in a snap? I mean a trip that I haven’t planned but happened so instantly. That I just saw myself on the road again. 

It was few hours before I logged out from the office when I was asked along with my colleague to accompany our foreign interns for a weekend trip. I wasn’t prepared for a tour but my feet were itching for a quick getaway.

Our destination was Subic. It has already been a long time since the last time I had visited the place; hence without further hesitations I had joined the group. Well, the trip was free of charge, from transportation, to food and to accommodation so, I think there are no more reasons not to accept the enticing offer, right?

Bolinao | Beach Bumming in Patar Beach

Sunday, November 30, 2014

I like it when my trips are just bumming around and having some relaxation. It’s nice to take some time off from exhausting activities. It was a soothing vacation just to be at my hotel, resort or any place, gazing the view, catching the sunset, lounging around and munching my favourite cravings. One of my desired places to have one is on a destination that has a beach.

Summer was about to end when I joined my closest travel blogger friends to have a trip to a popular beach in Pangasinan. The idea was to spend a weekend – bum, eat and have booze. We would want to have some break from jam-packed trips that we had on the earlier part of the year. Well, our plan to have that getaway with no dreading activities and all happened to be the perfect timing.

Beach Clean-up in Capones Island

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Traveling comes with responsibility. For me, it shouldn’t be just full enjoyment but also should come with obligation to nature, to people and to culture. One of the things that I always notice whenever I go to places like islands and beaches are the trash. Small trash, mostly. Oh, trash! It damages the environment and life of nature. It ruins the view and the surrounding. It gives stink to air.

One of our company’s initiatives to help sustain the green life and our nature is organizing a yearly beach cleanup. We do this lead during our company’s summer outing. This year, we’ve done it again in Capones Island.
