Calinawan Cave, Daranak Falls & Other Tanay Destinations

April 6, 2012 6 comments

Today’s blog took me wandering around my hometown to look for something new to write about. Growing up as a Rizaleño, I want to show the entire country and maybe the whole world that our place maybe underrated when it comes to tourism, but wait until you get to know our province. We may not have the best white sand beaches, we may not have the fanciest hotels, but we have everything in the middle that will equally satisfy the cravings of the intrepid traveler. Let’s travel to a town nestled at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range on the east and at the shores of Laguna Lake on the south – welcome to Tanay, Rizal. Read more…

At the heart of the Philippines lies probably the country’s most historic city, Manila, where until now evidences of the rich past still exist or seemingly evident.

Angeles City, Pampanga: Places To Visit

February 20, 2012 2 comments

Back in college, I used to spend almost my entire week in Laguna and no time (and money, in my case) to go back home spend time with, or attend friends’ birthdays. On the other hand, Laguna seemed like a stone throw away when friends come by and visit. Such small occasional visits are really something. Now, I’m back here, and some friends outside the metro. It’s my turn to give them the heart warming visits I felt back then. For us, birthdays are really hard to miss and personally, it’s sad to celebrate ones birthday alone. Today, I’m visiting a friend, some place not far North to celebrate his birthday and take the opportunity to see life in a city outside THE city. Today, we’re going to get lost… lost in Angeles – Angeles City, Pampanga. Read more…

Not far from the most popular street in Baguio City, Session Road, is the Our Lady of Atonement Parish, popularly known as Baguio Cathedral. The church is a favorite stopover for devotees, and travelers for its vibrant exterior colors.

This shot was taken a about 3 years ago in Baguio City. This is one of my favorite shots in Baguio City.

Pagudpud = “Pagod na, upod pa (ang gulong sa layo ng biyahe)”. [Translates to: "Pagudpud = 'Tired, and worn out (the tires due to the long trip)', though it doesn't sound so funny when translated to other languages. Is it going to be funny in Mandarin, German, etc?]

For almost 20 years, I’ve been residing in Cainta, but was not really going around town much until I started researching interesting sights nearby. I stumbled upon a place about 5 minutes from Valley Golf, and I was amazed that such place exist not far from where I reside. Taytay is the neighboring town of Cainta, and there lies a waterfalls I never imagined it existed. Curiosity got me excited so I left the house before the sun goes up, but the rain starts pouring down, yet I still went on with my agenda. Read more…
