Bacolod City | Masskara Festival 2016, the Beat, Colors and Smiles!

This year, I had the chance to witness and photograph one of the most colorful and most alive festivals in the Philippines, the MassKara Festival of Bacolod. For 2 days, October 22 and 23, I joined thousands of people in the streets of Bacolod, enjoyed the spectrum of colors, multitude of smiles and the beat! Yep, that song “tong-tong-tong pakitong-kitong” still lingers in my ears.

Surigao del Sur | Libuacan Cold Spring in Tagbina

A haven is defined as a place of safety or refuge. Last September I had the chance to visit a beautiful spot in Tagbina, Surigao del Sur which locals consider as their safe haven. Libuacan cold spring is a quiet, peaceful and serene safe haven. It is a place that could relieve stress and will definitely give its visitor a breath of fresh air.

Misamis Oriental | The Largest Ostrich Farm in the Philippines

An attraction that is perfect for a family outing or a hang out with friends that are fellow animal lovers, Philippine Ostrich and Crocodile Farm was established during 1998 and is located in Brgy. Malanang, Opol, Misamis Oriental. This farm has created its own name in the “must visits” list of not only students but also tourists. The farm was able to brand their animals as “Big Bird” and “Crocs”, which gives it a friendlier approach for kids and a cute nickname for adults.
