Its monstrous, fluffy and filling at great value for money, the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel ensaimada is a must bring pasalubong from Cebu or good for merienda.

Cheap accommodation in Larena, Siquijor

Mulanay’s been invaded with Santas!

The old town of Mulanay is invaded by Santas! At its town plaza, there were different Santas, in different positions, in different sizes. Some are standing, others seating while others are suspended in the air!


I travel because…

There is an infinite reason why one wants to travel. Below are just a few on why I travel.

The Columbia Techsun Interchange III is my outdoor sandal of choice for now and is reliable, offering comfort and sturdiness where it counts.

The beautiful and prominently located Vargas Mansion

Unisan’s Vargas & other heritage houses

Unisan in Quezon’s Bondoc Peninsula might not have the elegant old church in its midst but the beautiful heritage houses in its main town give it color, history and identity. These are just some of the structures that make this municipality interesting.
