Witnessing Cebu's Sinulog 2014 (Part 1)

Despite the occassional drizzles, I appreciate the cool Cebu Amihan breeze as I began walking along Osmena Blvd with ate Yan that afternoon of January 18. Philippines for the past few days has been experiencing a lot more cooler temperature than normal, and we Filipinos just gladly embrace it, after all it's a weekend to celebrate. It’s the day the Solemn Foot Procession is happening and I can’t wait to experience this much loved parade.

From the streets, I can see locals with their families, patiently waiting for the arrival of the black image of Sto Nino. People wearing hats, cute kids donning their Sto. Nino costumes and tourists flaunting their ‘I Love Cebu’ shirts, all while chanting Viva Pit Senyor. There are cameras everywhere, helicopters flying above for like every 10 minutes. Surely, this is Philippine's grandest fiesta celebration.

One Summer in Coron: Our All Girl Getaway Experience (Part 2)

Our first 2 days in Palawan perfectly spells summer. Every photographer would surely drool over Coron’s many islands and underwater life, we sure did. I used and abused my newly bought camera. I wanted to capture everything, it's just a visual feast out there! It’s the kind of place that made me wish I have Google Glass in tow.

Coron Town

Our day 3 and 2nd day of island hopping tour was merely a continuation of a beautiful exploration where we experienced the majesty of nature’s exotic beauty, but it also made us taste the overwhelming power of the sea… 

Like the 1st island hopping tour, we requested to start early since we want to visit Maquinit Hotspring before it gets dark. It’s March and I kind of assumed it would be a smooth less than 2 hour boat ride, I was WRONG!

One Summer in Coron: Our All Girl Getaway Experience (Part 1)

Palawan is home to some of the most enchanting group of islands in the Philippines. It's where you can see the most secluded, unspoiled white beaches but down under its water, a colorful marine life thrives. So when Cebu Pacific announced one of its much awaited Piso Fare sales, I immediately texted my travel buddy MC of my plan to travel to Coron. After replying with a giddy "yes", I booked a 4 day trip set for March 2014, a 10 month advance booking.

MC invited her officemates as well, the same 3 girls I travelled with in Laguna and Sagada. I got even more excited knowing the trip will be filled with boisterous laughter because this group is super fun to be with. Magaan at masayang kasama. Plus it's cheaper to travel in group!

Travel Dates: March 12 - 15, 2014

Day 1: Hello Coron!

We arrived in Busuanga's Francisco Reyes airport after less than an hour flight from Manila. Before going to NAIA 3, I took a mental note to choose a window seat as I don't want to miss the aerial view of the Calamianes Group of Islands. The ocean views we saw from the plane felt like a grand welcome hug. Hues of blues and greens surrounding the many islands and islets set the tone for the much anticipated beach getaway.

Travel Video: The Farm at San Antonio

A few days before I leave for Manila, my uncle invited me I asked my uncle if I could go with him at our clan's farm in San Antonio in Tacurong. It's harvest season and I'm so interested to see how farmers work in the field. I know my uncle would agree, in fact he's the one who constantly reminds us (the next generation) to start learning more about managing a farm. I always love being in a farm and those 2 days of observing is also a great opportunity to practice photography.

Harvest season in Tacurong

From Poblacion, we drove down the highway passing by a couple of tractors, a familiar sight during the month of September. Check out some photos I took during 2 days of observing these hardworking farmers.
