The Low Tide

When the sun and the moon are directly aligned with respect to earth, a low tide is expected at a particular time and place. This beach is at its lowest tide and a wide expanse of  beach front is exposed framing an amazing picture of neoteric  genre of a place worthy of being an island paradise. This is Camotes Islands waiting to be rediscovered by people who love to swim in its sparkling waters, bathe under the sun, discover its caves, try its foods, and befriend its gentle people.


I’m here !

My break was quick but pleasurable. I’m still feeling the hangover of the fiesta spell. A post can’t summarize it all but, several schedule of posts could contain the feeling of how it was in the stint of a little pause from online journaling. A little rest from the racking of brains, and utilization of time and effort for every issue posted, made the time off a little more than memorable. Places visited, foods savored, enjoyed and criticized, transportation to revel in, comfortable accommodation, and a budget blown up to smaller pieces and exhausted, gave the break a little less than wisely spent. Nevertheless, the unwinding process from mental pressure and from fragments of physical work were successfully loosened up and unfurled to begin again another bundle of posts for everyone’s consumption.

Hello everyone! I’m here ! I miss you all !

For my first post, here’s a short poem for all to savor the freshly energized brain…


I’m Here.


declare, the floor is open
with outstretched  arms begging
now this is the true moment
declare our bond that wont get broken
i read yours, you read mine
poetry, essays, picked from the vine
though times come a little bit brine
 filtered ones considered a perfect wine



Mactan, Cebu, Philippines


While in Cebu, dine at Lantaw Floating Native Restaurant located at Day-as, Cordova, Mactan, Cebu. They have a lot to offer when it comes to native foods. You’ll surely enjoy their hospitality as some of the actors and actresses of the country have experienced while they were in Cebu. We, too have the chances of tasting the quality of their foods. It was amazingly delicious! I’ll be back.

We  visited Isla Resort & Spa and the Casino. To play with the gambling machines were not in our itinerary, besides, we don’t know how to operate those.  We were briefed that the casino is owned by Koreans and it’s no wonder most of its patrons were Korean nationals and the gambling machines were all made in Korea, not the North. There were free drinks  while we toured around and coffee while we conversed at the table. Too bad,  picture taking inside was prohibited.
