Iloilo

I have a weird eating habit and quite absurd palate. I usually skip meals but I always indulge on a feast when engaged on the table. I do not eat beef but I can devour a whole slab of back ribs in just one sitting. I rarely eat rice but I can’t resist the urge of sugar. I despise oily food but love pizza and pasta and olive oil! I prefer to start and end my meal with a dessert – cakes, pastries, ice cream……Continue Reading “Where to Eat in Iloilo City”

Quitinday Falls

If the image above isn’t thrilling, what is? Despite the similarity in name with Quitinday Hills of Camalig, Quitinday Falls and Underground River is kilometers away and located in different town of Albay. Local’s say that it is their version of Palawan Underground River and Cebu’s Kawasan Falls rolled into one but I must say that it is beautifully unique but equally magical and thrilling. Located in the town of Jovellar of Albay Province, Quitinday Falls and Underground River recently gained attention via social media…Continue Reading “Quitinday Falls and Underground River of Jovellar, Albay”

Nested at the foot of Mount Banahaw is the town of Cavinti in the province of Laguna, home to at least five waterfalls including perhaps the most famous in the country – Pagsanjan Falls or Magdapio Falls or Cavinti Falls.

Dunsulan Falls

The Province of Bataan is a good day trip from Manila if you are into history, nature and adventure. Approximately two hours away from the Metro, the peninsula is popular for its historical sites, beaches and mountains. Not everyone knows though that the peninsula is also home to majestic waterfalls. There are more than 10 waterfalls in the province and I had a chance to visit three of them – Dunsulan Falls of Pilar, Limutan  Falls and Ambon-Ambon Falls both of Bagac. Dunsulan Falls Nested…Continue Reading “Escape to Bataan: Dunsulan Falls, Ambon-Ambon Falls and Limutan Falls”
