This spectacular montage is something most of us will never see in our lifetime.

I suggest that you view this in full screen, HD, with the volume on full.

A great piece for evening meditation too.

Repost:  My WordPress noobieness and my lovely internet connection (thanks GLobe Broadband!) last night made the image attached look like a thumbnail and I can’t seem to correct the post layout manually.

We never really had the chance to hop on this island but had a good afternoon staring at it during our CouchSurfing Cebu Sinulog 2011 Booze Cruize after the Sto. Nino fluvial parade to sundown.

Professionals, expats, travellers (backpackers and flashpackers alike) converse during this cool 3rd weekend of January not just to join the festivals in the city but to enjoy its surrounding beaches, seas and islands.

Not really sure if this island’s name is Virgin Island, from research I heard that was in Bohol (which is pretty close to Cebu, right?).  But that was what my Cebuano friends told me, and we were drinking that time so baka usapang lasheng hahahaha.

Let me know if you know different?

Can’t wait for my low-fare flight opportunity to come up for Sinulog 2012 and be back here again!


Once in a while there are pieces of art that really draws me to keep staring at them in amazement of their beauty.  This is one of those things.  I like the color, the texture, the emotion and everything else aout this picture.

I went to this place at the 1st week of May last 2008 as my 1st Solo Backpacking Trip.

People are really hospitable and made sure I was eating and not lonely and safe.

The Tricycle Driver/Guide drove me all around the great sites of the area.

Photo credits to Maximum Warp as I actually got this photo from his Flickr account.  This was how I remember it.



I’m in there somewhere!  It’s just amazing to see thousands of people booking tickets and flying out to watch a bunch of cars go round and round for several times.  Not really my cup of tea, but I had a fun time on my first F1 event.  Thanks to the Shaws!

I barely remember the rest of the evening, except for the chance to check out Emirates Palace to attend an Art Exhibit, rather, a projection of expected venues for Art Exhibits a few years down the road.

So I’ll just link to a recent post about Ramadan, and share with you my best pic from the lot of my Abu Dhabi photos.

Whoa! I’m not ready yet.

I finally had time to drop by and checked out the visit stats. There’s some interest on what this blog will be about.

Please bear with me some more as I prepare content. For the meantime, you can find out tons more about me on my primary blog:

Living Out Lod(Rose)!

Here’s also a random photo from one of my wanders:
