Taken at: Tagbilaran Port in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

It was one of the worst feelings ever. The seas were rough. The people who knew I was coming were so concerned because the ferry from Bohol to Cebu got cancelled because of the waves.

So many people from the boat vomited because of nausea. The number was more than half of the total passengers. It was that bad.

I would probably not do this again; or more specifically, not do it again during this time.




Taken at: Casa Verde, Ayala Center in Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines

I just realized that I am alone in Cebu tonight. My colleagues have moved on to their next assignments. So, what better way to spend this cold, rainy night but with the most comforting food Cebu can offer.

Casa Verde offers steak at very low prices. They have delicious food and you wouldn’t realize you’re in Cebu. I sat at the bar because I didn’t mind and I don’t want to wait for a regular table to free up. I had pasta and steak and a delicious milkshake.





Taken at: Quest Hotel in Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines

It was a rainy night in Cebu. Thankfully, I am in the comfort of my favorite hotel this side of the planet. If ever you’re in town, don’t think about checking in at Quest Hotel. It’s just across Ayala Center so you wouldn’t worry about where to eat, where to buy stuff, and where t get your daily coffee fix.



Taken at: General Santos Airport in General Santos City, South Cotabato, Philippines

It was a tiring two days. I was excited to go home but our flight was delayed by 1.5 hours. However, I was taken aback by this beautiful runway view.

I just hope they develop this airport into something more efficient and more conducive to travelers.




Taken at: Digos-Makar Road in Malungon, Sarangani, Philippines

After our stint in Davao, we’re now making our way to General Santos City – a 3 hour drive away. It’s in another province and it’s quite overwhelming to make the journey.
