Islas de Gigantes: Cabugao Gamay Island

I’m back again with another update on our Islas de Gigantes jaunt several months back. This time, it’s our third stop, the Cabugao Gamay Island, which is definitely one of the requisite stops for all island-hopping tours in the islands. In fact, this small island has one of the most photographed spots in the area.  Read more

Islas de Gigantes: Bantigue Sandbar

We’re past the middle of October, and I find it gets so dang warm, it’s almost like summer. Well, ‘cept for the frequent downpours we get in the late afternoons and evenings, some of them lasting all through the night (oh and that storm over the weekend). Hot days like these call to mind those days spent at a beach or an island, with nothing but the sea, sky and scorching sun to bear witness to whatever foolishness you come up with. And it’s ok to be foolish, especially if you’re in a place as picturesque as the Bantigue Sandbar in Islas de Gigantes.

La Trinidad Eats: Sinner or Saint Cafe

A quick update on a stormy Friday night. At least, on my corner of the world. Nothing more comforting when it’s cold and dreary (and pouring) than a cuppa joe and some cake, dontcha think? And if you’re anywhere near La Trinidad, there’s this place that you should check out for their selection of baked goodness and comforting drinks!

Islas de Gigantes: Pulupandan Island

A new month, a new travel series. Annually, we have to attend conventions to earn creds. But I do not think I am the type to fully let go of the chance to insert a bit of fun somewhere along the way.

Flew in there a day early, for a quick one-day-one-night sojourn to the Islas de Gigantes.

September 2017 FoodVentures: LaBrent Tea, Patch Cafe, Recess Resto, Pine Country Steaks & Waffles, The Loft, Sinner or Saint

While I was going through my albums for this FoodVentures post, I realized one thing: I kinda ate out too much this last month of September. And went to a couple of places more than twice. Tee-hee. No regrets, though.

Down South: Tinago Falls of Lanao del Norte

It’s real, guys. There’s no going back: IT IS OCTOBER. ALREADY. <insert dramatic pause here> Oh, dear. Only three months left of the year. But guess what, that means there’ll be an entirely new set of beginnings coming up, right? Yeah, there’s always a bright side; we just have to look for it. Speaking of “looking” for something (nearly) hidden, let me tell you about our visit to the Tinago Falls in Lanao del Norte. Read more

Down South: Mimbalut Falls in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte

The province of Lanao del Norte is home to more than a dozen waterfalls, and the most well-known or recognizable ones are, without a doubt, the Maria Cristina Falls and the Tinago Falls. But there is such a thing as the “Tourism Triangle” of Iligan, and those two waterfalls are among the three. What completes the triangle is Mimbalut Falls. Read more
