Simala: Beauty Unfolding

One of the first places that I visited as soon as I arrived home was Simala. As a Catholic, the shrine is very dear to me. I come here whenever there are huge decisions to make or when there are things that I feel I couldn’t handle on my own. Simala has become sort of […]

A Footbridge in Tuburan

After a quick stop in the Tuburan for some snacks, I was back on the road. It was getting dark really fast and Toledo City was still miles away. And from Toledo, it would take another hour to reach the City of Naga. That means that I’d arrive home at around 8 in the evening. […]

The Parish Church of Barangay Guadalupe means a lot to me. Not only because I still currently live in Barangay Guadalupe but more importantly because I basically grew up in this church.

10,000 Roses Cafe: After the Deluge

In early 2017, 10,000 Roses Cafe and More opened its doors to the public for the very first time. The opening wasn’t such a big deal.

Suddenly, Curbada dela Maria

During one of my many South Cebu motorbike trips last month, I found myself driving towards Mantalongon in Barili via the mountain roads of Aloguinsan.

A Return to Moalboal’s Bas Daku

After being away for several months, I knew that I had a lot of things to do. And by ‘things’ I actually mean places. And by do, in reality, I mean visit. So, since South Cebu was on my mind, I decided to pack my bag, get on my bike, and head to the beautiful […]
