Most Memorable Travel Experience
- CLIMBING THE GREAT WALL IN WINTER OF '05. nature's call to pee arose while i was on the peak of badaling. damn, that empty bottle of water was a lifesaver!

- TAAL LAKE, June '07. The jetski i was riding turned upside down. I almost panicked as my lifevest was half-worn... and Im not a swimmer... :S

- ROADTRIPPING FROM MANILA TO LAOAG. 13 hours of sleepless journey to northern philippines.

- HARBIN, CHINA, December '08. it was -30 degrees and my first time to have worn five levels of clothes. brrrr...

- GETTING LOST IN HONGKONG in August '05. my first time to travel abroad, left my friends at the hotel, bought some stuff in Temple Street, lost my way back. the scarcity of English-speaking locals made it worse. great boo boo! :-D

- BANGKOK. the nightlife, and all its secrets ;-)

- SNORKELLING THE SUNKEN CEMETERY OF CAMIGUIN. wow, a sight one can never forget.

- TREKKING THE TAAL VOLCANO. a raging horse bit one of my friends. we were all shocked to find out that horses can also be harmful in another way, aside from kicking. my friend was okay. :)

- AUSTRALIA, April '08. just fell in love with the land down under... and I can't wait to finally migrate.
A Filipino. Tennis fan. Chocolate sucker. Friendly and calm by nature. Fighter by choice. Smiling face. Hospitable. Nocturnal during weekends. Team player. TB addict.


"Travelling is one of the greatest forms of education. Therefore travel money is not an expense, but an investment."


Sometimes, to find happiness, you gotta break the rules, follow your heart and live life the way you want it!


"Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Todays is a gift... that's why it's called present."
