Sagada, Mt. Province Philippines

Follow us on our tour and adventures at the beautiful place of Sagada, Mt. Province.

Cagayan De Oro White Water Rafting

Conquering 21 major rapids at Cagayan De Oro River. A very rewarding experience for a beginner like me!

The Majestic Mayon Volcano

The Mayon Volcano is well-known for its perfect cone shape. Even the thick clouds that cover some part of the volcano won't stop you from getting impressed with its majestic beauty.

Summerscape at CamSur: Wakeboarding

Summer's definitely not over yet. Wakeboarding at CamSur can make your arms and neck really sore but it's all worth the fun and experience! :)

Isla Gigantes Adventure

An unspoiled group of islands in the town of Carles, Iloilo. White sand, pristine water, and beautiful scenery - truly a paradise.

Snorkeling. More fun in the Philippines

With those giant whale sharks swimming in Tan-awan, Oslob sea, snorkeling is indeed more fun in the Philippines!

Photographic T-Shirt Printing

Pin It

I was late for the art workshop registration last summer so I was not able to attend any of them. Since I badly wanted to do something this summer, I decided to enroll for an art workshop at SM City Iloilo. I was choosing among Oil Painting, Caricature, Graphics Design, and T-Shirt Printing. I decided to enroll in T-Shirt Printing because it has a good potential for business. The lesson started yesterday with Sir Benny Loro and we are going to start the practical workshop later. So I needed to have a design. I wanted to print a logo for the Link Wolves but couldn't think of any. I wanted something for the summer and here's what I found from Google:

We are going to use a silk screen for the printing so I need to have a black and white design. Which means that I have to edit this one. I recently had my laptop reformatted and my technician-colleague didn't install an Adobe Photoshop software! So I had to do it with "Paint" and I ended up deleting the undies/bikini of the

I am going to put this one at the top-center portion of the shirt.

April 2 Marks Our 39th

Pin It

We had a monthsarry dinner at Bauhinia located at Smallville, Iloilo. The new Smallville 21 hotel looks nice and it gives us an amazing view from our table at Bauhinia. We had our first dinner here in Bauhinia 2-3 years ago and I loved their food back then. So I thought we'd pay a visit once again and it never failed us to satisfy our hunger.

The complimentary peanuts!

Bauhinia Fried Rice

Chicken Inato

Escabecheng Lapu-lapu

Fresh Mango Shake
It was a fancy dinner but it made our 39th month extra special. ☺

nth Time in Boracay Island

Pin It

Had a wonderful start for summer this year. Spent 2 nights in Boracay with my colleagues at work last March 25-27. We took a bus from Iloilo to Caticlan, Kalibo. The bus fare as of that time was PhP313/adult. As we arrived at the jetty port, we had to pay for the environmental fee, fast craft fare, and for the terminal fee (not sure if it was really a terminal fee, lol). From the jetty port of Boracay Island, we took a tricycle ride and went to D'mall to look for a place to stay. We settled at Sunwoo Resort which is just a few meters from the beach.

Sunwoo Resort has their own swimming pool and their service is somehow satisfactory. The guy was kind enough to give the family room for just PhP4000 per night. It was originally Php3700, good for 4 pax only and you have to pay PhP500 for each additional person. So that was already a fair deal for the 6 of us (though our other companion didn't stay with us so we were only 5 in the room). We had to pay for the henna stains on the bed sheet (PhP500) and two pillow cases (PhP200 each) though.

First thing we did was to get a henna tattoo! Boracay is a place where tattoos do not make you look like a weirdo, ex-convict, or a bad person. I personally want to have a real tattoo but maybe not this

Boracay's night life is sooo FUN!!!
Boating (PhP2000/10pax)
It was a bit rainy and the sea was rough. So we were not able to sail around the island and the boatman didn't inform us beforehand. But the pay was still the same! Duh We were tricked by that boatman!

Going Home with sore bodies and SATISFACTION on our faces!
