Kabigan Falls, Pagudpud Ilocos Norte » The Best Lazy Trekking to Waterfalls in Ilocandia

Pagudpud is famous for its scenic beaches, but staying too long in the waves can bore you and sometimes you felt this need to escape the salty breeze . So, for a little freshwater twist in your Ilocos Norte tour, never miss this lazy trek to the Kabigan falls.

Kabigan Falls is surrounded by thick forest and well-known for its concaved basin, located at the eastern part of Barangay Balaoi, around 1.8 kilometers away from the national highway.

Chasing Summer » Akyat Pinatubo Bloggers Climb For a Cause

This summer is too short. We already got intermittent rain showers a few days ago signalling the wet season, so we only got a few more weeks to enjoy the sun and have outdoor activities. 

Although I love beaches, I want to try something different. Fortunately I came across the Let's Go Sago blog and learned about the "Akyat Pinatubo Bloggers Climb For a Cause", a bloggers' travel activity this coming weekend. This event is for the benefit of Tahanang Walang Hagdanan and is also open for non-bloggers who would like to join this worthy cause.

Pagudpud Beach in Saud, Ilocos Norte » Detecting Your Average Summer Happiness Level

“This time it was going to be different,” I thought to myself. However, when we arrived at Pagudpud beach in Saud Ilocos Norte, I instantly got the feeling, from the looks of it, that this is just another beach; maybe this is what you got when you’ve been to a number of beaches around the Philippines, or maybe I’m just tired. I’ve been to the overrated Boracay, pristine Tingloy, Bolinao, Panglao and Bantayan Island – and I can safely conclude that, basically Pagudpud is your typical bummer-swim-and-go beach. It is exciting when you first see it but becomes boring on the second day.

Bangui Windmills » Catching Scattered Memories Beyond the Wind

Have you ever visited a place for the first time that instantly triggers memories of your happy childhood? A far-off place with totally different landscape and foreign scenery but with an ambiance that evokes a familiar “feel” within your subconscious. Sometimes it could be the place’s scent that instantly exhumes buried and long forgotten memories. Childhood memories that you think you’ve lost when you discovered the adult world.

It would be nice to once again feel that carefree feelings right? So folks, let me show you the Bangui windmills of Ilocos and at the same time let me also share pieces of my treasured childhood memories.

Defending the Caveman » Fun Way to Understand D.ckheads’ Sensitivities and Nagging Women

Millions of books, articles shows and movies were already published and produced dealing with the differences between men and women, so it is definitely a fact we all know.

Actually, it is already a boring subject.

However, I’m able to watch Rob Becker’s one-man show “Defending the Caveman” starring Joel Trinidad last Friday at the RCBC Plaza with my office-mates. I never thought gender differences could be that fun. I got a nice dose of Friday night “sosyal” entertainment.

Cape Bojeador Lighthouse » Death of Elegance, Creepy Tales and A Spark of Wisdom

We expect bright sunny day on our visit to the majestic Cape Bojeador Lighthouse but no, egotistical weather decided to give us gray clouds and gloomy rain showers. It seemed that the weather was trying to make a point - solitary sentinels of the sea are best visited when the circumstance has the aura of immense loneliness. Well I got the point, and I love it.

I looked up, and saw the outline of the towering Bojeador Lighthouse, hazy due to the drops of rain falling like tears on my old eyeglasses. It was like Severus’ giant wand ready to cast the unforgivable Imperius Curse to the world – hoping to control its chaotic ways. And I was like an elf, climbing the cold stone steps, diminutive, weary and nonchalant.
