Conquering Mount Pinatubo

I have never thought of climbing a mountain. EVER. Nase-stress na nga ako every time I think about it. I never liked trekking for three main reasons:

(1) It's tiring. Duh.
(2) Getting lost and stranded in the middle of nowhere is downright scary, which brings me to number 3...
(3) It's dangerous, most especially if the weather's unpredictable.

But I eventually gave in with the idea of trying it, even just for once... or so I thought.

Updates: Laguindingan Airport Project

The latest statistical data report of CAAP (Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines) has shown a steady increase of passengers for the past five years, all thanks to the rise of low-cost airlines which makes flying to different points of the country possible to every Juan.

But despite this development, some airports are in dire need of expansion; they can no longer handle the huge influx of passengers. A perfect example for this predicament is Cagayan de Oro City's Lumbia Airport.

This Is How We Flew and Rolled

Just last Saturday, we had our shoot for the teaser of our travel show which will soon be aired on Mindanao Travel Channel and on YouTube as well. The night before the shoot, I was so busy of thinking some concepts and the things that might happen to us in the next few hours. I was pretty much excited for our shoot.

Adrenaline rush!

The weather was pretty bad that time. The morning sky was gray and depressing. But despite the bad weather, it didn't hamper our mood and decided to push through with our shooting. Rain or shine, tuloy pa rin!

And little did I know that we were actually going to fly in mid-air and literally roll in the 'deep'. Ha!

Sencha Milk Tea Place

Whenever I'm in Chowking, I'd always order Nai Cha, their milk tea. I don't know but I really love the blend of milk and tea and I'm the only one in the family who has a penchant for it! Over the years, Chowking has been my one and only source of milk tea. There were no milk tea places in Davao until two (or three) years ago.

Just this month, another milk tea place opened its doors to the public. Of course, I didn't have any second thoughts of trying Davao's newest milk tea place.

Where to Stay: Metropolis Suites

Hotels are sprouting like mushrooms in some major cities of the country, including Davao. But most of them do not cater the needs of the travelers; even the basic needs such as tissue papers, toothpastes and towels!

Cafe Aurora

But there's a particular hotel in Davao which offers the basic needs of a traveler. What's more? This charming new hotel offers luxurious services at a reasonable price!

Why Amazing Race is Amazing

I have been an avid fan of this fastest reality TV show for almost a decade.

I started watching The Amazing Race back in 2003. During that time, the third season was still running. Flo and Zach won that particular season and I didn't expect it. I was expecting the model twins to win but, oh well.

And the fun doesn't stop there! Every year, I always look forward to the new teams to love... and to loath. With feelings pa!
