The Forest Camp: Valencia’s Best Nature Resort

Take nothing, but pictures;
leave nothing, but footprints;
kill nothing but time.
-The Forest Camp

Valencia, a first class municipality of the newly-hailed Negros Province, is home to many wonders of nature. It can offer you pristine falls, rocky rivers, virgin forests, and relaxing hot springs. With that, during our Negros Trip, we listed Valencia as the first municipality to visit and we listed Valencia’s best nature park as our first stop.

Ten to fifteen minutes away from the Valencia town proper lies The Forest Camp Nature Park. True to its name, it is a unique and well-developed nature resort surrounded with trees, a river, rocks, bamboo rooms and function halls, natural pools, and many others.

Mt. Naupa: Another Friendly Peak at the South (With Travel Guide and Summary of Expenses)

Mt. Naupa has become popular to mountaineers, campers, and trekkers since last year. We got curious about it, that is why, when my friends invited me to have a camping trip to Mt. Naupa, I did not hesitate to come!

We decided to pack our bags and spend our September 24th and 25th at the top of the mountain. That’s a weekend, of course. We wanted to see how the sundown and sunup would look like from the top so we decided to start our trip at noon and rode a bus to Minglanilla, Cebu.

#GabiiSaKabilin2016 : Ang Paghinumdom sa Kaniadto

I love history. I always love to look back through time and see how the people in the past live and work. When I found out that Cebu is very active in promoting cultural and historical awareness, I was very happy.

Having Gabii sa Kabilin here in Cebu for 9 years now is a manifestation that many are eager and passionate to appreciate Philippine culture and history. That’s a very good thing for us specially that we are now under neocolonialism.

Gabii sa Kabilin or Night of Heritage is a 6pm to 12am activity that is held every last friday of May every year where participants tour from one historical site to another. For one night, you get to tour around Cebu City and get to know the past of the Cebuanos! How amazing is that?

Those Little Things are the Ones that Matter for Mother Earth

This month when I bought the May-June 2016 issue of Meg Magazine, I was stunned when I read a two-page environmental campaign inside its pages. I did not expect that these two pages will remind me with the fact that I can actually contribute greatly to the advocacy of protecting and preserving the environment by doing some little things I usually ignore in my day-to-day living. These are things that we know that we should do but we tend to just not do them. Why? Because we are not committed and sincere enough to bring our advocacy to practice. The magazine encourages to cut the illustrations out and put it in places where people can see them. For me, I will take advantage of the internet to remind you, dear netizen who is reading this right now, that you can do more for the environment without wasting a sweat.

Kalanggaman Island: Palompon’s Pride (2-day Itinerary and Travel Guide)

If there is a Rookie Island Award for last year, I would say that Kalanggaman Island would be nominated for it. This gorgeous island has caught the attention of the country starting 2013 and the number of people visiting it has been growing ever since.

This summer 2016, my friends and I decided to personally witness the beauty of this island and discover why Filipinos have included this in the list for the must-visit islands of the Philippines.

This blog is not just created to share our island experience. This is also a travel guide to Kalanggaman Island. Take notes and enjoy!

Bagumbayan

It is a place that I love my whole heart. I would have to say that I grew up here since I oftenly visit because my ancestry grew up here and my grandparents are still living here up to this day. Today, we are maintaining a permanent residence in this gracious barangay.

In some jokes, they call it “New Town”. For kids who still cannot speak clearly, they call it; “Umbayan”. It is my pleasure to introduce to you Brgy. Bagumbayan of Hilongos, Leyte.

Aguinid Falls: The Mini-Canyoneering Adventure in Samboan

Our trip to Aguinid Falls was not a planned trip because Canyoneering was out of the list when we planned our Cebu South Backpacking trip. But when our tour guide suggested that we go to Samboan to experience the Canyoneering adventure of Aguinid Falls, we didn’t think twice and just hopped to the motorbike and started the travel right away!

Oslob: A Paradise

In this generation of explorers and adventurers, Cebu province’s Oslob is a well-known travel destination. That would be because of the friendship the Oslobanons created with their huge fish friends, the Whale Sharks.

The Whale Sharks of Oslob are also the reason why we decided to travel to the south of Cebu. And we were very happy we did because our stay there helped us uncover a lot more things that Oslob can offer aside from their friendship with the Whale Sharks. I will be very happy to share those things to you through this blog.
