Sulu

Sulu

A good day to find peace in Sulu. Despite all the warnings and fake news that the place isn’t safe for a tourist nor a traveler, I got myself stuck in Jolo. Not just to tick off another province of the PH81, but to learn some of the cultures and practices in Mindanao. I never bothered walking under the sun while roaming around the town because there were so many things that were new to me, like their story, language, the food, and religious practices. To be honest, spending a day in Jolo will never be enough because there’s still a lot of stuff to learn and places to visit. I will surely come back for more stories, and unlimited laughter along with my newly found brothers. Continue reading “Sulu”

Isabela, Basilan

Isabela, Basilan

Most of us incorporate the word WAR or GIYERA whenever we hear BASILAN. Pero huwag mag BASI LANg sa sabi-sabi, go to BASILAN and see for yourself. It is a piece of paradise, not just a war zone. I feel so blessed when I went for a day tour in this place, though I was a bit scared, to be honest. But the fear shifted when I saw what this place can offer, it amazed me. Now let me share our one-day itinerary and expenses. Continue reading “Isabela, Basilan”

WorkGoals Series: Davao

WorkGoals Series: Davao

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”

3 REASONS WHY ILOILO HAS TO BE IN YOUR BUCKET LIST

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”
