INTRAMUROS: The other side!


It was my first time to visit this part of Intramuros and I was impressed of this view.

I felt so sad when earthquake hit Bohol and Cebu. Cebu is my second home while Bohol is one of my favorites. These two places are home of my closest friends and relatives. 

Old structures especially Churches are most affected by the incident. Cebu and Bohol are known as home of the best and oldest Churches in the Philippines. Everytime I visit these places, I always stop and take a snapshot of the beautiful facade of these Churches. I haven't heard any destruction in Talibon and Dauis Churches, and I hope they are fine. 

One of the most devastated is the Loon Church where almost nothing but pieces of stones were left. My prayers and sympathy are always with you, to my friends, my family and the rest who are affected with the earthquake. Until now, there are status and tweets that people are still experiencing after shocks and tremors in low magnitude. To my loved ones, please be safe and ask for guidance. Be alert and don't panic.

To the people who are willing to extend their gratitude and kindness, you may send personal message to me. My sister is accepting donations in cash or in kind to the families affected in Bohol and Cebu.

Discomforts while on Travel

When you are on travel, everything is uncomfortable!  You are out of your comfort zone and these situations will add more discomfort while on travel. 
I guess you already have an idea.

Flood, can't go out. 

Sweet couple on your next table.

Storm in Boracay, can't enjoy the beach! What the! 

The place you would like to visit is not open for viewing. 

Creepy place to stay. 

Ei Mr Pilot, there is a storm along the way. 
Waiting for the next trip, Ok! 

Chinese sign boards?  Is there any translation? 

Riding on a "skylab" and good luck if it's out of balance. 

Saying goodbye with besties, sad moments happen every end of the trip.

Meal for two? Ei, I'm alone in this room.

The SULU Archipelago!

My first travel to Tawi-Tawi was via ship from Zamboanga City Port and I haven't felt any excitement because it was my first to go to the province. My perceptions were very different until I started to talk to strangers inside the ship. Their comments was really different on what I heard in the news and print medias. The travel lasted for 16 hours and half of it was spent in sleeping. We passed by the SULU ARCHIPELAGO upon reaching the province of Tawi-Tawi. Seair flights during that time was stopped due to some aircraft standards that until now they haven't resumed their operations to Tawi-Tawi. That is the reason why I took the ship instead. 

I was happy to know that there where already available flights to Tawi-Tawi by AirPhilExpress the second time I visited the place (at present,CebuPacificAir has already flights to Tawi-Tawi). I'm also glad to know that flights are in the morning because I know that Islands within the Sulu Archipelago are magnificent. Upon take-off my camera was already prepared and ready to capture beautiful aerial sites. Below are pictures I took during my Zamboanga - Tawi-Tawi flight. Enjoy! 

These Islands are great and very comparable to some beautiful known beaches in the Philippines. If and only if this part of the country is very safe for tourists and locals, surely people will flock and build communities here.
