Secrets of a once enchanted river

Years ago in 2003, we shot Hinatuan's Enchanted River on our film camera. I wrote about it in the local paper, and eventually in Mabuhay Magazine, Manila Bulletin and other publications.

Cool waters of Aliwagwag

Local kids in Cateel, Davao Oriental enjoy the cool waters of Aliwagwag Falls, its stunning cascades a poignant reminder of nature's fragile ecosystem when it was affected by the onslaught of supertyphoon Pablo (Bopha) in 2011.

Lost in Benguet, a flashback.

If you come to my pages for words of healing, just type on the search box, healing. I can only shed light and spark hope for a moment. The rest is up to you.

The best and most creative toilet I’ve ever seen or experienced is in Yuyu Dessert Bar and Cafe, Tagum City. You can just stay here and sing along all day long. What wonderful toilet humor! (best viewed on HD) Oh, and this Cafe serves delicious food. :-)

I've seen better days, but I have also seen worse. I don't have everything that I want but I do have all I need. I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up. My life may not be perfect but I am blessed. ~ Unknown

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” ― Osho

Take me to a quiet place

" With earth under our backs, cradled in a forest glade. There we will point out the things we see – and acknowledge those things we do not. In solitude, we take in the wisdom offered in each other, and take in the hum of the forest." — Phoebe Wahl

“There are no more committed people on the planet than surfers. We fall down a lot. We turn around, paddle back out, and do it over and over again. Unlike anything else in life, the stoke of surfing is so high that the failures quickly fade from memory.”…
