Puerto Galera: Valentine's Day Getaway

Date: FEB 14-16, 2015

Valentines’s Day is near, and since I don’t have any dates, I decided to organize a Valentine’s Day trip with my officemates. It was also Van’s birthday and he decided to go out-of-town to celebrate. While I was thinking about where we could spend the weekend, the idea of going to Puerto Galera suddenly came into my mind. Because of its proximity and budget friendly activites, my officemates agreed to go there next.

Burot Beach: A Weekend of Seclusion

Calatagan, BATANGAS
Date: FEB 07-08, 2015

Burot Beach is not really on my must-see list. I’ve been hearing about this place for a long time, and I never had any plans of visiting it – until one of my officemates visited the beach. He told me that SM already bought the property, and it was the sole reason why I decided to visit it once and for all. We do not know, maybe SM will close it one day from the public and it might be the next Pico de Loro Resort.

Lake Pinatubo: Catastrophe's Blessing

Botolan, ZAMBALES & Capas, TARLAC
Date: FEB 01, 2015

Mount Pinatubo in Zambales is one of the mountains that I always wanted to climb. Even though its catastrophic eruption back in 1991 was comparable to the end of the world, it left an aftermath which is now considered to be a natural wonder – Lake Pinatubo. Some people say that this lake would not be there forever, because it might disappear once the volcano erupts in the future. So when the opportunity to visit the lake knocked, I packed my bags and invited my friends to join me.
