Still thinking of where to take your special someone this Valentine’s Day? Here’s a great recommendation! Why not Dine Under The Stars at The Terrace of Maxims Hotel in Resorts World Manila. It’s exactly what my wife and I did just a couple of nights ago.
Though we had this particular dinner a couple of days before Valentine’s, it was a great way to kick off the season of love, given the ambiance, preparation and, yes, even the kind of dishes prepared for the evening.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Bohol once again courtesy of my wonderful Philippines AirAsia family.
I’ve said it time and again… Bohol is like a second home to me. I’ve been to Bohol around over 6 times in 2016 alone — and I never grow tired of it. Bohol is just one of those amazing places that boasts of great tourist spots, wonderful food, exciting festivities and some of the warmest and most hospitable people around.
Our itinerary for this particular Bohol trip was the Ubi Festival 2017 which is celebrated annually, and a fun Visita Iglesia in January. I was actually also able to attend the Ubi Festival 2016 last year which was so much fun. Now, just to get the confusion out of the way… Boholanos spell Ube (Purple Yam) as “Ubi”. They also happen to be the largest growers of this root crop anywhere in the world, hence the festival in this province that was named after it.
The Visita Iglesia is also something that I’ve been eagerly anticipating on doing. Of course, Visita Iglesia season happens during Holy Week which falls between March and April every year, but it was great that we were given the opportunity to do it during our recent visit. Bohol has some of the most amazing and majestic churches in the country and has been a great destination for tourists and the faithful alike. Sadly, most of the churches in Bohol have been devastated or badly damaged due to the terrible earthquake back in 2013. During my frequent trips to the province last year, the local government together with their people, have been hard at work restoring and reconstructing these churches. This visit gave me an opportunity to see how their efforts are progressing.
Join me as we go on a Visita Iglesia as well as join the Ubi Festival 2017 through this photoblog. I also made a quick video of this trip which I embedded below as well. Let’s go! :)
Technology is a great thing. Among other benefits, it makes our work much more efficient, it allows us to do things more conveniently, and it gives people access to information faster and easier than ever before.
But, at what cost?
You see, technology is a double edged sword. As we maximize and enjoy its seemingly limitless potential, we must also be cautious not to be burdened or hurt by it.
We constantly praise humanity’s advances in technology, not to mention the power of the internet, recognizing that because of it, the world has never been smaller and more connected.
While that may be the truth, many of us fail to realize that the very same technology that practically surrounds us everywhere we go, has also made us slaves of it. The very thing that has given us the power to be connected has, ironically, also been the very reason why human beings have slowly grown apart. People have become frighteningly addicted and dependent on technology that we have sadly become imprisoned by our devices and forgotten the importance of personal ties and truly “being” with someone and sharing meaningful moments with them.
It’s such a tragedy to see families living under the same roof and yet never really “being together”.
The MyPhone Infinity is here. It’s sleek. It’s sexy. And it looks nothing like those cheesy plastic-ish local phones we’ve grown accustomed to seeing being sold all over. In fact, the MyPhone Infinity’s design and form factor kind of resembles a larger iPhone 5. Anyone who’s held this phone in their hands and have seen […]

Summer is just around the corner. Gyms are packed with people getting their bodies ready for the beach and some fun under the sun. Of course, working out and lifting weights are great and all, but there are a couple of things one can additionally do in order to hasten the shedding of fat and […]
Sleeplessness or lack of sleep. Whichever of these two keeps you company at night, the negative effects to one’s body are the same such as advanced ageing and a weak immune system. In my line of work, whether blogging until the wee hours of the morning, staying up from morning till next morning for a […]
Never underestimate the importance of good eyesight. That’s probably one thing I’ve learned as I grew up. Back in the day when I was decades younger, taking care of my eyesight was something I always took for granted. I’d read books and comics for hours on end even with little to no light at all. […]

Did some interval training last night. It was a combination of chest and bicep exercises combined with a minute of intense cardio (stationary bike on this occasion) in between each set. This particular evening, I added more weight to my chest presses. I also mixed up bar and dumbbell combinations for bulk and definition. I […]
It’s sad that I have to write yet another rant on my blog about SkyCable’s internet service – SkyBroadband. I am trying to bite my tongue so to speak, as I’m clacking away on my keyboard, trying to find less offensive words to say. I’ll just keep this short and sweet brief because I might […]

After quite a while (more than a year, I think), my wife suddenly had the urge to run outside and do some cardio. It amused me so much that I decided to tag along and record her short sprint around the block on video. Guess what I did with the video clips I recorded… I […]
