Island-Hopping in Boracay

Posted on June 21, 2017

Aside from lounging leisurely at the beach and partying at night, what else can you do in Boracay? If you are looking for activities beyond helmet diving, banana boat riding and paragliding, then island-hopping might be for you. Yes, there’s much more to see in Boracay aside from the stretch of white beach along Stations 1 to 3. Getting an island-hopping tour requires no effort at all as boatmen will approach just about anybody on the beach without caution. Alternatively,Read More

A Review of Anika Island Resort, our home in Bantayan Island

Posted on May 15, 2017

Every time we travel, seldom do we really care much about accommodation since we’ll be out and about most of the time. As long as we have the basics (i.e. clean bed and toilet, strong water supply and air-con unit), we are OK. Thus, it’s always such a big bonus whenever we stumble upon accommodations that offer much more than the basics for a price that is reasonable. Such is Anika Island Resort, a charming little beachfront property nestled inRead More

That Pristine Paradise Called Palawan: Puerto Princesa City Familiarization Tour

Posted on May 28, 2016

When I was recently searching for inspirational quotes about travel, I found two lines that perfectly encapsulate how I am as a traveler. One is by Robert Louis Stevenson, a Scottish essayist, novelist and poet, which goes, “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” The other is by English stage and cinema actor Sir Richard Burton who said that “The gladdest moment in humanRead More

One fine lunch at Isdaan Floating Restaurant

Posted on March 25, 2016

On our way back to Manila from our Caliraya trip, we made a quick stopover at Isdaan Floating Restaurant in Calauan, Laguna. I was surprised to find out that there is one such restaurant in Laguna; I once thought that Isdaan only had a single branch located in Gerona, Tarlac. It is owned by the Ongpaucos, a family of restaurateurs that also own Barrio Fiesta, Bakahan at Manukan, and Singing Cooks and Waiters. As such, expect the fusion of allRead More
