Calaguas Morning

Imagine this... waking up to the sounds of the waves gently going back and forth in the shores. Then slowly stretching your body feeling the cool breeze of air coming from the hills and valleys. Then inch your way to the shore as the fine white sand trickle at your feet and the gentle waves wet you feet but just ankle deep. No crowds, no deadlines, no rush hours, no work... but just the presence of glorious natural bliss.

Sunset means Goodbye!

I can't help myself but be melodramatic. As I watch the sun slowly set again while staring at the red-orange skies, I realize that at this point in my life, everything seems to lead to goodbyes. I am not the one to elaborate because I don't usually put my heart on my sleeves but then again, everything happens for a reason. I will just put my faith in Him and I know I will be alright. Sunset means Goodbye but Goodbye also means moving on...

Of Birds and Butterflies

Spread your wings and fly
toward my shattered dreams
come and see my blood red sky
come and share my fears

Sentosa's Siloso Beach

The island-country of Singapore is truly fascinating. They do not have white-sand beaches so they made not one but three artificial beaches. With a stretch of more than two kilometres in length on Sentosa's southern coast, Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach, and Tanjong Beach have become favorite destinations not only among tourists but for locals alike. These beaches are reclaimed using sand bought from Indonesia and Malaysia.

2nd LIFE (The Baler Capsized Boat Experience Part II)

It was probably one of the longest ten minutes of our lives as our boat captain tried unsuccessfully to revive the motor of our boat. Our boat stopped at the middle of Aniao Islets and the relentless waves keep pushing us forward to the sharp and deadly rocks of the bigger Aniao Islets. My first actual realization that we are going to be in deep trouble was when our boat was merely arms-length away from the sharp rocks and the only thing that kept our boat from crashing was a piece of bamboo pole that we used to push our boat away from the deadly rocks.

We were literally fighting it out with the elements until the first glimpse of hope arrived – a small outrigger fishing boat that can fit four people at the most. This boat passed us just few minutes ago when our boat was still running. One of the two passengers of the boat said that they had a gut feel that our boat will be in trouble because of the strong waves so they decided not to proceed to their destination and return to warn us instead. And oh so right they were, we were indeed in deep trouble when they arrived.
