    Family Vacations Malapascua Island Hopping In Cebu Side Trip To Kalanggaman Island

    There's no better way to welcome the New Year than a visit to some of the beautiful beaches in the Philippines. Though my family still celebrated New Year's Eve at home, we flew to Cebu on the first weekend of 2016, Jan. 2, to extend our holiday season. Yes, it was all my idea.😀

    It's been a while since my family had an out-of-town trip, so I proposed a family getaway plan to my sisters late last year. Since we were traveling with our folks and two toddlers, we had to pick a place that's convenient and safe enough for the entire family.

    Our pick: Cebu

  • Cloudy With A Chance Of Awesome In Malapascua II

    Here's what you missed on our latest adventure: the friends and I travel against all odds (aka the low pressure area that would be known as typhoon Ruby) to paradise island Malapascua. There were a lot of doubts but finally, we arrived all in one piece and enjoyed the island's fine white sand, amazing food and the oh-so-dramatic drizzle that never dampened the fun sans the sun. Yes, I know it rhymes.

    Day 2 of the Malapascua adventure began with a promise of sun in the horizon. The air crisp as those brand new 20-peso bills Mom gives away at Noche Buena. The breeze was a definite sign that C ...

  • It Feels Like Summer In Malapascua

    Snobbery is an unlikely character of a wanderlust. A traveler opens not only his heart but also his mind to the intricacies and complexities of a place. It is inevitable, however, that there are places I considered too exposed, too comfortable to the horrors of tourism. I tend to avoid them like a plague. Places, islands like Malapascua??"an island in northern Cebu known for its thresher sharks.

    It is, I thought, an island for someone who has a perpetual ache for the deep. But I do not ache for the ocean. I ache for the salt water, the saline breeze, and the extravagance of the color blue.

  • Saving Marine Life

    In the past, fishermen did not have to go far just to catch fish, as the ocean back then was said to be teeming with different kinds of marine life.

    But that was a long time ago, according to Felipe. Today, Caohagan gets its daily supply of seafood (saang, soft-shelled lobsters and even ordinary fishes) from neighboring provinces like Leyte. These seafood are sold to people who visit the island everyday to have lunch at its white beaches. Andy Berame, coordinator of Lapu-Lapu City's Coastal Law Enforcement, said that for so many years, the seawaters in their area have been repeatedly raped ...
