Kabutongan Falls and Late Afternoons in Malabuyoc

After weeks of research and several failed attempts, I was finally able to locate Malabuyoc town’s Kabutongan Falls. Kabutongan Falls is one of Southern Cebu’s most hidden waterfall systems. Unlike its more popular counterparts, Kabutongan is a bit difficult to find and even more difficult to conquer. But I didn’t know these things before my […]

What Happened to Cambuhawe?

The water from the pool then flows straight towards a shallow brackish body of water which also flows towards the sea. Two weeks ago, […]

The Three Drops of Binalayan

When I saw a sign posted on a tree by the side of the road, however, I was like, “Why the heck not? I’m already here!” So I got off the highway, drove a few meters to a group huddled around a small store, and asked for directions. So, it turned out that the ‘store’ […]
