And so was this week! At this time of year, there is hardly any tourist on Bantayan island, let me know when you come and we’ll pick you up at the pier. You won’t find any clubs or bars on our side of the island but the Buko juices and the San Miguel are the most refreshing… Continue reading WPC : Today was a good day

I was day dreaming, waiting for the waitress to bring the menu. A very young Filipina was slowly cleaning the floor and putting the chairs behind her without paying attention at the masterpiece she was building. She was totally into her song, obviously a love story where Prince Charming was taking his girl to the kingdom of far far away. … “A subconsciously deliberate mistake” I … Continue reading Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Wanna come up ?…

Trying those fishes is a must … Continue reading As Dry as Bantayan’s famous fishes!

I am not much an early bird. To be honest, I tend to like my bed more than I like most people. Except when I am at the beach. Then I love waking up with the sun to take massive stocks of Vitamin Sea. We are blessed to live by the most beautiful beaches of the world (Make sure you add The Philippines to your bucket list, you’ll thank … Continue reading The world belongs to those who get up early

Are Blue. Like Bantayan… TGIF, TG for so many things… I spent the last 2 weeks running tests and more tests, worrying 24/7 for my health. I am pretty good at worrying, the mere mention of “doctor” already totally freaks me out. Let alone the word “test”.
