People Watchin' @ Bagasbas Beach

When the sun is high in the sky, the shoreline of Bagasbas Beach is a picture of peace and quiet solitude that can soothe a tired soul seeking for solace against a mad life. But when afternoon comes, the whole place turns into adventurer's playground and a perfect time to people watch.

Spendin' Sometime at Bagasbas Beach

Christians all around the nation will definitely head-out into the water this Holy Saturday. Old Traditions and beliefs have it that water this time of the year has healing powers that can wash away all the sins committed through-out the year. Well, sins or not, I still think that with the searing heat and all, today is the perfect day to cool-off, and immerse with that satisfying feeling of being at the beach.

Pasonanca and the Boy Scout Connection

I first saw images of these odd-shaped huts on a popular fast-food chain in Zamboanga. I asked my travel buddy what are these, and he said, those are fixed huts made-up of aluminum tins with concrete floors used by boy scouts whenever they are camping. The picture of rows of these tents as placed on the walls of that fast-food chain is quite interesting specially on the way it was photographed - that is on monochrome. So, before leaving Zamboanga, we see to it to visit Pasonanca and have our own take on the place.

"To travel is better than to arrive". I used to think that there is only one path to take to where you want to get in life. But choosing that one path doesn't mean you have to abandon all the other ones. I realise that it's actually what happens along the way that counts.

Zamboanga: Fort Pilar

If there is a bastion that has withstood the test of time, it has gotta be Fort Pilar in Zamboanga City. Founded by the Spaniards in 1635; attacked by the Dutch in 1646; deserted in 1635; reconstructed in 1666; rebuilt in 1719; stormed by Moros in 1720; bombarded by British in 1798; abandoned by Spaniards in 1898; occupied by the Americans 1899; seized by the Japanese in 1942; and finally claimed by the Philippines in 1946.
