Chasing Waterfalls in Iligan City

By on May 29, 2016
I once did a blog a collaboration with Lisa Mirasol of Pinaytravelista.com where we shared various travel tips about Iligan, a highly-urbanized city in Southern Philippines. Little did I know that a few months after I published that entry, I was fortunate enough to return to my beloved birthplace to participate in the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0, a unique weekender organized by the Iligan Bloggers Society.

Butuan City delicacies: palagsing and decades-old hotcakes

By on April 23, 2016
I actually expected a few hotcake stalls that morning. Mrs. Carissa Tolo or Nang Isang would later tell me that there used to be five of them back in 1984. Her fellow hotcake vendors have since left Butuan, but she chose to stay in the city. She has been flipping these beloved pancakes ever since.

Interesting finds at Mercato de Oro

By on January 25, 2014
I was excited with Mercato de Oro for at least 2 good reasons. I thought that this is a welcome alternative, to the Night Cafe at Divisoria, the closure of which drew mixed reactions from the city residents.

There is a bunkhouse at the peak of Mt. Kitanglad (2899 MASL) in Bukidnon in Southern Philippines. Like most hotels or inns, you also need prior reservation to guarantee a slot there.
