The Windmills of Pililla and the Natural Beauty of Tanay

Pililla & Tanay, RIZAL
Date: APR 09, 2019

It’s my sister’s 24th birthday - and just like last year, the whole family’s going on an out of town trip. We decided to travel further east, visiting the windmills in the town of Pilillia and Daranak Falls in Tanay. We also had a stopover at Cafe Katarina, a well-reviewed restaurant on the mountaintops serving festive Filipino food.

Celebrating Shery's 20th Birthday at Port Alfred

Date: APR 04, 2019

Port Alfred is one of the largest resorts in Partido. The resort has a towering slide, and I’ve always wanted to visit the place. Shery, one of my classmates in PSU, told me the night before that she will be having an advanced birthday celebration today at Port Alfred. She invited us to go there tomorrow morning, a couple of hours before I leave Goa for Manila because of my Summer OJT.

Eastern Laguna: When Nature Meets Adventure

Santa Cruz, Pagsanjan, Majayjay & Liliw, LAGUNA
Date: APR 11, 2015

While playing Lakbayan quiz on the internet, I realized that I’ve never been to the towns of Eastern Laguna. That’s why when I had the opportunity to visit these places, I packed my bags right away and left. It did not disappoint me, and in every town that I visited, I saw wonders and magnificent landmarks. Too bad that I only had to visit for a day – which is not enough when checking out the province’s tourist spots!

Gumasa Beach: Faraway Haven Down South

Date: MAR 16, 2015

Sarangani is one of the southernmost province on the main island of Mindanao (along with Davao Occidental), and it is divided into two parts – Eastern Sarangani and Western Sarangani. This province is rich in natural wonders but because of how remote Sarangani is, only a few people braved to visit. While surfing the internet, I saw an article about Gumasa Beach in Glan, Sarangani, and according to online reviews, the beach is truly amazing. That’s why I decided to visit this place and see it for myself.

Bukidnon: Braving the Long and Winding Road

Malaybalay, Valencia & Maramag, BUKIDNON
Date: MAR 15-16, 2015

At 10,498.59 km², Bukidnon is known as the third largest province in the Philippines. Because of how huge this province is, the journey tonight might be long and tiring. Good thing that the bus was comfortable enough for me to sleep (thanks to its cool airconditioning system), and there were TV sets and reclining seats as well. Hopefully, I won’t get bored.

Maria Cristina: The Mighty Cascade

Date: MAR 15, 2015

The city of Iligan in Lanao del Norte is known as the “City of Majestic Falls.” A number of waterfalls can be found within the city, and one of them is the famous Maria Cristina Falls. Today, I will try my best to get to this waterfall that I’ve only seen on my Sibika at Kultura textbook during elementary days.

Laguindingan: Gateway to the Land of Promise

Date: MAR 15, 2015

The day I’ve been waiting for is finally here – the day that I will visit the island of Mindanao! I booked this flight a few months ago, and because of my excitement, I wasn’t able to sleep last night. The highlight of this trip will be Trail Insanity’s climb to the summit of Mount Apo. I can’t wait to get there, and now I wonder, what could happen through out this southern journey?
