4×4 Ride at the Paoay Sand Dunes

By on July 16, 2010
The best ride in getting to and around the Paoay sand dunes is via a rugged, 4x4 vehicle. This would ensure adequate traction especially at loose spots and in going up and down the sand hills. Stay away from the tricycles or your family sedan when you can help it.

Sandboarding at the Paoay Sand Dunes

By on July 12, 2010

Mayon

By on December 31, 2009

I can only hope that we would now look at every monumental loss with maturity and resilience. I also hope that we would also look at every triumphant breakthrough with sobriety and gratitude.
