  • Christmas Arrives Early In This Aeta Village

    Christmas Arrives Early In This Aeta Village

    At the heart of Sierra Madre lies a small village called Sitio Yangil. It is the home of approximately 30 Aeta families, living harmoniously with other indigenous inhabitants of the land??" tall trees, rare birds and vibrant flowers.

    In order to get there, one must cross three rivers and a couple of streams, not to mention the one-hour trek over the thick layers of lahar brought by the explosion of Mt. Pinatubo in the '90s.

    Despite that, the trek is truly an exciting experience for any adventure seeker, especially to one who spends most of his time in an office desk.

    A Day With The Aeta Tribe In Zambales

While none of us have had any actual trekking experience that involved hours climbing a mountain (a hill in Batanes for me maybe?), the initial problem we encountered was that Ian was apparently bad with directions. The suppo ...

    Escape The City Surf And Serenity At Liwliwa Zambales

    Its name may not be as popular as Baler, its swells may not be as frequented as La Union's. But its gentle waves and sloping shores make it a retreat from the city definitely worth the drive or a bus ride. Step into the sleepy yet special town of Liwliwa in Zambales: where surf is the heartbeat and serenity is soul.

    Just about four hours away from the bustling and busy Manila, Liwliwa has become an alternative to the more famous surfing spots up north. From the main road of San Felipe, Zambales, a narrow crossing with a small town marker and a hostel's name stand (they're not too noticeable ...
