Something Exotic at Balaw-Balaw

Balaw Balaw Restaurant
I am not into cooking, but I love eating! One thing that I would like to share was really an amazing experience with exotic foods. After enjoying the famous Higantes Festival, while our clothes are wet, we proceeded to Balaw-balaw, a prominent restaurant in Angono, Rizal serving exotic foods.

Digging the History of Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery

Paco Park Manila
Today, I can feel the Halloween season; at the office we're already preparing for an amazing costume party with the touch of Disney characters and while searching for a stunning outfit, I encountered a photo of the oldest cemeteries in the Philippines - the reason why I am now posting these photos taken at Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery, in 2014.

A Small but Terrible Mount Damas

Mt. Damas
Until now, Mount Damas is still in debate if it’s really a minor or a major climb. Others would say it’s minor because of its elevation and others would say its a major one because of its trail type and technicalities. During our ascent, the entire journey was composed of an assault and river crossing. This mountain is also the home of eatas who protect the forest from illegal activities.

On the Summit of Mount Apo | Day 3

Mt. Apo
It was the longest night I ever had. When I woke up at around 1AM I did not fall asleep for some reason. The wind was strong and as it penetrates inside the tent and hits my skin, it was like a knife that cuts and makes a wound because of its temperature and we were also bothered by the bad weather that might affect our ascend to the summit.

Mt. Apo and the Sulfur Vents

Mt. Apo
This photo was captured at Mount Apo's sulfur vents. This spot is stunningly gorgeous because of the huge white boulders and the patches of yellow sulfur on the surface. Mt. Apo is one of mountains in the Philippines with such kind of feature. More photos? Click here.

San Sebastian | The Church Made of Steel

San Sebastian Church
After meeting up at TIP Manila for my cap distributed by Street Style Originals, my plan was to visit Paco Cemetery but due to unfriendly weather condition, I opted to visit San Sebastian Church, just few meters away. For the second time, when I entered the church, I was still fascinated by its uniqueness; from the walls, columns, floor, glass chandeliers, cabinets and others look really stunning.

Street Style Originals Promotes the Philippines

Street Style Originals
Aside from mountains, historical and heritage sites are also part of my blog post. I believe that we can’t reach our stage today without the richness of the past. This modern generation, it’s hard to promote history and how we can preserve them; but simple things can make a difference. When I saw Supremo cap online, distributed by Street Style Originals, I was thinking that it can create a huge impact to the youth.

Oh My Vans!

Vans Shoes Off the Wall
My original plan was to buy a pair of Merrell sneakers but due to unavailability of the item at Robinson's Metro East department store , I chose Vans classic shoes. Looks great right?

Changing BIR RDO

Changing BIR RDO
February 24, 2014 – I processed my employment documents that include Pag-Ibig or HDMF and my tax updates (RDO and Tax Exemp.) I am working for more than five years now and it was my first time to process these documents and it wasn’t a good experience, so I want to share it with you.  Since I previously worked for a BPO in Mandaluyong City  with RDO: 041, I proceeded to BIR Office in Boni to have my BIR Form 1905 Stamped. But, upon submitting it to the clerk, he informed me that my record was already with RDO: 43A in Shaw (near SSS and Pag-Ibig). So I rode on MRT from Boni to MRT Shaw, then on Shaw boulevard, I rode in a jeepney with “Pasig, Palengke” signage. Get off in front of Pag-Ibig Bldg. (second Stop Light). Crossed the footbridge where BIR is located. Got queue number from the guard and waited for my turn.
