34th | Keeping up with the SObelles

If you weren’t there, you won’t get it.

Spent my 34th with these crazies in breathtaking Siargao.

Day 1 | Cebu

And off we go!

We had to wait for April to arrive from Manila so we killed time at the Casino just across the Mactan Airport.

Literally pigged out at a Yakiniku for lunch

Day 2 | Siargao

Almost 1 hour plane ride from Cebu to Sayak Airport and we went straight to our first stop for the trip (which is just like 5 minutes away). We booked all our tours with Galatea.

Kawhagan Island

Pit stop for lunch since eating/cooking and drinking is no longer allowed at the Sugba Lagoon.

Sugba Lagoon

Very picturesque turquoise waters. Definitely a must see. Nice that when we went, it was not that crowded.

We left around 4pm to go to General Luna which is like 45 minutes away from the airport and checked in at the Bravo Hotel.

We had dinner at Harana and at 9PM they cleared the dance floor. Apparently, every night there is a different party at a particular venue. Saturdays are for Harana.

Day 3 | Siargao

Woke up around lunch time and headed off to Kermit. Food is really good, did not disappoint.

And we started our salubong sesh by the beach. Sundays are for Bravo. Super fun night, thank you friends!

Daku Island

Clear blue waters, fine white sand, beer in hand, soaked up the sun. Lovely.

Last of Summer | 2017

One last beach trip with my boys before school starts and summer is officially over.

Photo set | Punta Ballo, Sipalay

Day 1

Thomas and Friends go to the beach



God’s art and my life in one frame


Day 2

Day 3

Punta Ballo is (I believe) an unspoiled beach paradise¬†located south of Sipalay, approximately 4 hours from Bacolod City. A stretch of white sand, spectacular scenery, calm waters, clear skies — what an awesome weekend.

Some suggested accommodations in Punta Ballo:

Nataasan Beach and Diving Resort

Artistic Diving Beach Resort

Robinson Cruse White Beach Resort

Southwest Sipalay Resort

Perth Paradise Resort

Random thoughts on this last Friday of August

Sometimes you just jump, like off a cliff or a really tall building.

Drastically you just do, even if heavy fog blinds you and the only way is down and there is no way of finding out what lies beneath when you hit bottom, be it rocks or stone pavements or grass or sea.

Because for a split, staggering, unnerving moment…you fly.

Yeah I’m off work in two hours, yay¬†for the long weekend!
