Hong Kong & Macau

It was four days of photo-walking in Hong Kong and Macau.  We had to deal with the moody weather, blazers put on and taken off on repeat.  Wished we visited during Autumn instead.  Nonetheless, we enjoyed the trip.  We relied on the travel blogs plus the MTR app and by the way, I loved Hong Kong’s MTR.…

The Two Faces of Boracay

Why do thousands of tourists go to Boracay?  Is it the beach?  The parties?  The water adventures?  You’d probably say all of the above but what makes it different from the rest of the islands in the Philippines? My first trip to Boracay was about three years ago and we chose to go there during the off-peak…

Summer Escapade: Bantayan Island & Virgin Island

Bantayan Island: one of the lesser known islands in the Philippines with powdery white sands and crystal clear waters.  What I love most about it is that it’s very affordable to travel to, it’s safe and the people are kind.  You can just leave your bike on the street without locks and no one would steal it…

Someone told me that running on the road is harder than on the trail because the grass is softer compared to the concrete road. I wish that the trail run route was all grass. I’m not a runner and joining the 1st Osmeña Peak 32k Challenge never crossed my mind. I was convinced by my…

Team Big Ring’s Annual Invitational Bike Camp 2015

Baguio in Black and White

Three days of photo-walking in the Summer Capital of the Philippines with my phone, point-and-shoot and an open mind.  I accidentally deleted about 60% of my photos.  Spell CLUMSY. 😦 Baguio City is located in the province of Benguet in Northern Luzon.  It was called as the “Summer Capital” because of its cool climate, thus…
