Iggy was pulling the board into the deeper part of Banol Beach while Emma, who was seated in front, was rocking it back and forth.

Where I have been this 2012

I asked for twelve wonderful blessings this 2012 and I got them all. Now, here’s how I rolled the past year. 1. Got lost. (Tarak Ridge) Went climbing the famous ridge of Tarak in Mariveles, Bataan twice and got lost on our second visit. Funny, right? Ending was a painful 4-hour ascend.

With all our 7,107 islands and diverse culture, listing all the things that can be done in the Philippines is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Yep, Boracay not Bora. The party life here is also craz-eh, if you know what I mean.
