The West Cove Boracay

Boracay’s Atlantis and Manny Pacquiao’s aesthetically unique and charming resort with breathtaking ocean view.

When you’re in Bora, make sure you include West Cove in your itinerary. Who knows you might bump into the Champ or Aling Dionisia. But I heard, the resort is closed to the public whenever he’s around.

Nadal Castle

The newest attraction of Numancia, Aklan is a quaint modern castle. Plus a pool and jacuzi. Minus dungeons and dragons.

Or else it really would be weird to see some dragons swimming in a pool.

Shangri-la Boracay

For a poor small town boy like me, Shangri-la is jaw-dropping dead gorgeous. Definitely, the best hotel and resort in Boracay!

So this is the cherry to my 2010.

Happy new year everyone!

Everybody loves differently

Sad fact no. 12:
Because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

The Crescent Moon Café

The world is beautiful when the heart is full of love.

I saw the quote etched on an old wooden dresser of the café. This, and the glowing kois, the lush ambience, the alagao wrap-up salad, and the healthy food either picked from a tree or fished from their natural habitat, made me fall instantly in love with the place.

You’d surely get a yes when you propose to someone under the beautiful crescent moon.

My Three Golden Rules on Friendship

Just in case one day, we become friends, just remember three simple things:

First. Don’t ever make me feel alone, all by myself. Most especially if you’re there, if you are near, if you are just around the corner.

Second. I won’t mind if you don’t tell me everything. Just don’t lie to me. But in case you did, give me one very good reason to forgive you.

Third. If you done me wrong. A simple sorry will do. If you have a hard time saying sorry, a bribe or a piece of chocolate is acceptable.

I don’t want to harbour anger. I just want to give love, the most beautiful thing life could offer.

I already forgave you. A long time ago.

Myth of the Human Body Exhibition

One museum. Too many dead people.

But I learned something new today – that a man’s testes are asymmetrical. They were naturally made like that for the sake of humanity. And it isn’t a myth.

Note: Exhibition is not for the faint-hearted. Picture taking and touching of the plastinated human bodies are prohibited. But some visitors just love breaking the rules anyway.

Mt. Batulao: Walking on the Shadow of Time

I was supposed to go to Batulao last August 23, 2010 for my birthday, but it did not push through due to unforeseen cosmic reasons. Ever since I kept wondering, “Had I conquered Mt. Batulao then, would the bloody August 23 Hong Kong bus kidnapping have been prevented?”

Sometimes one simple action could trigger an event with complex consequences. What if? Sadly, there are some things that are beyond my control.

But I'm happy I'm climbing again.
