I left my heart in CALAGUAS


…And I have to come right back to come and get it, and intentionally leave it there again.

Calaguas captivated me. It was beyond breathtaking. It left me in a trance, in a dream.

Driven with immense spontaneity, with only our backpacks, our camping tent and our thirst for adventure, Pao and I did a Do-It-Yourself beach camping trip to Calaguas Island and we found ourselves in discovery of another slice of paradise here in the Philippines. Although different Calaguas group tours are sprouting out nowadays, we chose to take on the thrill and adventure of doing a Do-It-Yourself camping trip. And it was so worth it and very much fulfilling!

I personally think that Calaguas has just surpassed Boracay (or Boracay may just have to personally surrender). It is that untouched and it is that pure and I support that it should remain that way no matter what. Boracay may have been like that 20 years ago. Calaguas Island literally left our jaws hanging throughout the entire trip and yes, we were definitely left in awe and amazement.

Riding the Waves in Bagasbas


“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf” —-OH YEAH! And I definitely did!

Ready, set, surf!

I went on a spontaneous trip with my friends in Bagasbas Beach, in Daet Camarines Norte last May 1-2, 2010. It was my first time to surf, and oh yes, the exhilaration was really something that I’d like to experience again.

This was definitely a spontaneous weekend to remember. Thanks to the company and spontaneity of Fi, Gil and Pao, we were bound for limitless fun, adventure, and incessant food trips!  I loved Daet, and I am definitely going back!

The Gang!
