As kids, we were often asked by our parents about the places where we wanted to go. We never thought about how much it cost them or how hard they prepared for our dream vacation. Then we became adults, we realize it’s actually hard finding a place where we can have the most comfort without spending too much. But, when we get a job where field work is a duty to accomplish, a huge window of opportunity may come with the brightest of colors. This is what happened to me and my colleagues during our weekends at Bicol Region where we were tasked to implement our project.
The home of Pili Nuts and Spicy delicacies, Bicol is one of the best destinations in the Philippines where a traveler may enjoy most of what could be found in the country. Hospitable people, sweet treats, the best dishes, beaches, falls, and mountains. Continue reading “WorkGoals Series: Bicol”
Last year I narrated my stories about enjoying work while traveling. I had an opportunity to go to more than five provinces in less than three months. This time, I am more than excited to tell you the places I visited while at work from January to June of 2018. In the course of six months, I have traveled far and wide to carry out our automated system for our branch offices. But, of course, I am not gonna tell you about that. This is about my adventure with nature, what my eyes saw, the air I breathe, the foods I gobbled, and the cry of peace behind the outskirts of the cities. Continue reading “WorkGoals Series: Davao”
Sunny and rainy. The only two seasons in the Philippines. It makes our country warm even when the days are cold. Sure we had our own share of tropical monsoons, but nature sits still as the days of hard wind pass by.

Each one had their own personal travels from January to June of 2018 and they have decided to share the colors of warmth, relaxing orange skies, chilling sea breeze, and the vanishing of light across the horizon. Let us take you to different places in the country with our collection of stunning sunset photos. Continue reading “Stunning Sunsets: Philippines”
People. It’s very hard not to notice Ilonggos friendly attitude as they wear their big smiles at all times. Ilonggos are very approachable and accommodating making the tourists feel at ease in asking assistance/queries. The only barrier between the locals and tourists is the language differences. Since they have their own dialect, expect that not all locals are fluent in Tagalog. I suggest that when you communicate with them, try to use either English Language or TagLish. With this, they can understand you better. And when you are interacting with locals expect that some may completely understand your queries, however, when they respond to you, they will speak in Ilonggo. You really have to make a good pick to whom you will throw your queries. 😅😅😅 Continue reading “3 REASONS WHY ILOILO HAS TO BE IN YOUR BUCKET LIST”
