Aliwan Fiesta 2015

I have been hearing about Aliwan Festival for a number of years now.  Mainly from the beauty pageants I have watched in the past since some of the contestants are winners or Reyna ng Aliwan from the said event.  Beauty queens like Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean Lastimosa and Miss Earth 2014 Jamie Herrel are both Reyna (Queen) ng Aliwan in 2008 and 2013 respectively.



This year, I witnessed my first Aliwan experience in Manila. And it was such a colorful and fun event to join in!

The Backstreet Boys Are Back!

Forgive me Dear Readers for I will deviate a little bit from my usual write-ups.  The BSB or Backstreet Boys have come back for a one-night concert last May 5 and I tell you, they were Larger than Life! : D

Before I discovered my love of traveling, I am also a great lover of music.  I was and still am.  I am a very passionate person and if I like someone, I stay loyal for as long as I can. And my love for the Backstreet Boys, the best-selling boy band of all time, is a testament to that.

Paete, Laguna

I have long evaded the eastern part of my hometown province Laguna.  Most of the time my thoughts are plagued by it being just within proximity where I live.  But then, I know that this area is abound with cultural treasure just waiting to be discovered.

Paete is one of several towns straddling southern parts of the Sierra Madre Range while Laguna de Bay can be seen at the northern part of the town.

Wander Photo: San Juanico Bridge

I remember myself walking the curves of the once-longest bridge in the Philippines. Under the great heat of the noon sun.  The road was trembling as big trucks roar by.  I would stop for a moment.  Then head on again.  



It was a happy day for me.  I was able to conquer San Juanico Bridge. What a nice memory.

Boracay Island Once More

It has been more than two years since my last foray into the famous Boracay Island.  So much has changed since my last visit.  I got a bit sad upon seeing its once all-green landscape from above.  Just right before my plane landed in Caticlan airport. Over-development and incorrect planning were two words which jumped around inside my head.  But then, I was there to unwind with my friend after a three full months of no travel.
