Regeneration Day in Atulayan Island

Less touristy is my default adjective whenever I describe my kind of go-to place for a weekend getaway or a random escape from the rush of the every day. That is particularly true whenever I am on vacation. I am blessed for having someone who has always been on a constant hunt for that kind…

Riyadhizens, People of Saudi Arabia, Let’s Make it Green!

While digging the modern dossier earlier today, 29 March 2021, pertinent to the #LetsMakeItGreen campaign, I have come across a familiar name, who, apparently was the former CEO of the company I am working for. He was one of the many leaders in the workplace — with reputation. He had truly given the company’s ship…

When the Usage of “Po/Opo” Becomes “Pabebe”

In Philippine culture, the usage of “Po” and “Opo” is a sign of respect. That is, respect when talking to elders and authority figures. We, Pinoy, pride ourselves in using those words. It shows how polite and respectful we are and it is is revered by foreigners. When I was in the academe and the…

Time Stands Still at Trinity Islands in Oas, Albay

The World’s Finest Wilderness Lies Beneath The Manila Ocean Park

It was 16 December 2010 when I first explored the Manila Ocean Park’s oceanarium. This is one of those activities that I would heart to do over and over again. As you know, I love nature and I immerse in its elements whenever there is a chance. The ocean park just gives that superb, magical feel…

When Things Are Bright And Beautiful

It all started when I saw my son playing blissfully with the slippery earth, the warm-season cogon grass, and the almost piercing golden rays of the sun three years ago. That’s when I figured out he is bound to appreciate nature’s simple wonders just as I do. I have long understood how important it is…

Putting The Unsolicited Advice Down

One of my closest buddies opened up to me the plight he was into a month ago. Since the wound is still fresh that time, I just listened to his every word. I opted to wait until tomorrow to give a comment and because I needed time to put down my thoughts on what he…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

Three weeks ago, I wrote a post about keeping my toy cars because they were already in danger from my son’s hands. I actually thought of reposting that particular photo which I know I can use for this week’s photo challenge but after checking on the post again, I was more than happy to know…

Keeping the Little Boy in My Heart

When I was a kid, one of the things I liked beyond shadow of a doubt–and still like–to play with is a toy car. The irresistible attraction of those minuscule cars remained intact up to this time. Looking back at how I envied my playmates who had plenty of toy cars, I can’t help but…

The Card

Time really flies faster than expected; I didn’t notice that it’s been nearly three years since I saw that innocent, cutest face the night he came out from her portal. The sound of his first cry bounced to my ears again as everyone in that room was looking at him with a smile–the most significant day of…
