With Holy Week just around the corner, it’s time once again to consult a map and contemplate on doing the rounds of churches for the annual Visita Iglesia. While you’re at it, it might be worthwhile exploring Rizal Province which is renowned for beautiful, mostly centuries-old churches with some dating back to the Spanish colonial period. This year, why not hop on your bike instead of walking so you can cover more ground? After all, you’d still be using your legs as some sort of sacrifice for the Lenten season while pedaling your way to municipality after municipality of quaint, old churches steeped in history. Let’s start our Siklista Iglesia.
I’ve always wondered how it’s like to live in a small island. Of course I imagined there would be palm trees, a nice beach, hammocks, refreshing drinks, native huts and endless view of the ocean. But when I took a project for one of the private islands in Taytay Palawan named Noa Noa Island, I never expected to be staying about 11-days in this luxurious island where I was the only guest while working on a project. It was one of my memorable escapes to a not-so-known island surrounded by one of the most astounding marine sanctuary I’ve ever swam on.

Huling hirit for summer in Palawan
Never been much into taking a photo of myself. Never thought to be photogenic nor keen on taking “I-love-myself” photos. I also don’t think of posting my photo here as it might scare people away once they open this page. Hehehe. But once in a blue moon I do decide to flip around my camera and take a self-photo. This was an attempt to take an underwater photo and guess what those fishes just decided to literally butt-in the picture and ruin it.
Anyways, this was taken under the waters of Apulit island, home of the high-end resort Club Noah in Taytay Palawan. So far the best snorkeling and diving experience I had lately. I was really estatic on finally setting foot on the famed “Last Frontier” after last week’s delay, I thought I would never get a chance to stp on this rock. But fate’s been kind and granted me this trip. It was quite a place considering we were only two Filipino guest and most of the crowd there are Koreans and a small number of Japanese Nationals.
