One fine Saturday of January, I embarked on a journey which made me realize that nature indeed has a lot to offer most especially when it is willfully protected and carefully preserved. Aloguinsan River is wonderfully a great example. A group of local fisher folks and their families guided by the Local Government Unit (LGU) is actively preserving and protecting the beautiful Bojo River in Aloguinsan while they earn concurrently. It is indeed an awesome Saturday of journey towards ecology and culture ̶ an exploration that is not only brimming with beauty and wonders but is also loaded with knowledge and enlightenment. You will surely come out of the journey with your mind and heart filled deeper with love and understanding of the Mother Nature.
Romeo and Juliet, Beauty and the Beast, Jack and Rose; All the stories of these classic love affairs is nothing compared to the story behind the beautiful and majestic The Ruins in Talisay City or commonly known as The Taj Mahal of Negros.

The beach isn’t the only place you can go to for the summer. There are a lot of other destinations that you can opt to choose from. And one destination that you must not miss out for this summer is the enchanted and beautiful Mag-Aso Falls in Negros Occidental.
The Moriones Festival of my home province, Marinduque, is one of the most famous religious Philippine festivals for its interesting premise: it centers on culture and religion in the country, with an emphasis on reliving the time Roman soldiers roamed the streets during Jesus’ crucifixion.
The thick fog, the verdant hills, the sea of clouds and the amazing view – thanks to a cup of 3-in-1 coffee, these things definitely catch my attention about an hour after being on the road from the city proper of San Carlos. Yep, I’m usually asleep during long road trips like these.
With all the different amazing destinations found in the world, it is quite hard to choose where to go when planning for a vacation. But sometimes all you have to do is take a closer look instead of looking so far away. Just here in the Philippines, we have more than 7107 destinations you can choose from. One interesting place that would make you feel like you are in the beautiful Maldives is the Manjuyod White Sandbar in Negros Oriental.
With all the 7107 islands here in the Philippines, there are places that are surely still bound to be undiscovered or not within the radar of most travelers. There are a lot of hidden treasures and hidden gems found here in the Philippines. And one is found in Barangay Dawis in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental.
