The Way to The Port of the Galleons

Another season for escapade has come. It was Romeo’s birthday and it was time to save the man from the cruelty of the city life. Romeo is a beach bum. He can stay in the waters for a whole day until he’s starving and his fingers are all wrinkled. So to celebrate his 24 years of existence, we decided to go to one of the most talked about spot for beach lovers. To Puerto Galera we went.

Disclaimer: Of all the things that I could have forgotten, it was my beloved camera which I left at home. Imagine the dismay. Left with no other choice, I was forced to use my phone camera. (My heart cringes until now.) Continue reading “The Way to The Port of the Galleons”


For Those Who are Never Punctual

How to Get Away with Sadness

Most of us, if not all, reach that point when we feel like life is betraying us and we just can’t take it anymore. That moment when your longtime partner suddenly left you for reason you never knew. When you failed your last college requirement when you thought you’ll be graduating in weeks. When your best dog died at the exact time when everything is pissing you off. You want to go to the edge of the world. Squeeze your tear ducts and shout all your frustrations out.

Where am I going? What am I doing with my life?
