Flying in without any reservations for a place to stay, without any itinerary of places to go, not even having a simple map of the city wasn’t exactly what I had in mind for my first trip abroad. All I had were tips and bits of information taken from the travel blogs of my friends Gael and Gay written on my notebook as I hopped into my AirAsia flight bounded for Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia.

I'm glad I can be part of this project started by which, according to them, aims to unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

Rules are simple:
1)     Blogger is nominated to take part
2)     Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category.
          - Your most beautiful post
          – Your most popular post
          – Your most controversial post
          – Your most helpful post
          – A post whose success surprised you
          – A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
          – The post that you are most proud of
3)     Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
4)     These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
5)    And so it goes on!

Who would’ve thought that I’ll be able to finally see the Chocolate Hills this year? A place that I could only dreamt of seeing back in grade school as I read about it in our SIBIKA books. Of course this was the time when I thought a plane ride (domestic or abroad) would sure to cost an arm, a leg, and lung.  Maybe what keeps me from travelling to the places I would really love go to is that I really don’t know where to go or what to do when I get there and as a newbie traveler, I’m scared to go alone and be carefree. Luckily this time, a good friend of mine, Myke, is from Bohol and he was going to take a vacation with his family there and invited me to tag along. An opportunity I just couldn’t passed up, so upon hearing that, I filed my vacation leave and booked a ticket!

Just recently I was able to watch a documentary on a local news channel about discovering the true identity of the infamous writer, Bob Ong, And though I am a big fan of his works, I wasn’t really aware that he maintained his anonymity through out all these years given his legion of fans and a bunch of best sellers to boast for, and I guess that made me respect him even more.

Bob Ong is a true-blue Filipino writer who writes in Filipino with a bit of Taglish for flavor, as quoted in one of his books “Kung ako ay isang walang kwentang manunulat, english ang isusulat ko, para kahit anu anu ang sabihin ko hindi na nila mahahalata.. Kaya nga ako nagsulat sa tagalog para maintindihan ng mambabasa ang lahat ng sinasabi ko.”. He has such a simple and relaxed style that makes it easy for me, who’s not very fond of reading, to get hooked and even be inspired to write as well. I’m sure many were.

Since I only have permission to post one picture, here you go. My first official pre-nup shoot taken at different locations in Bolinao, Pangasinan. This one particularly was shot at Bolinao Falls.

I'm now open for freelance work for weddings, birthdays, and other events within Pangasinan and nearby areas. You may email me at for more details.

Thank you! :)
