This week’s challenge is a bit technical. It challenges us to go out of our comfort zone of taking landscape shots and go into detail. The pictures below were taken even before the challenge was posted but since they fit the week’s theme, I am sharing them. The first picture is a landscape/panoramic shot of the beach of Matukad Isaland in Caramoan, Caramines Sur:
There were lot if interesting things on the shore but the one captured my interest the most and made me capture it in more detail is the sea weeds:
Hope I did justice to this week’s theme. Happy Monday everyone! For more entries for this challenge, check out Daily Post.
Huwaw! It’s been almost two weeks since I last posted and I feel so bad for missing last week’s photo challenge. >_< February is madness! I’ve traveled to Caramoan Islands last week, succumbed into office chaos brought by the ISO external surveillance, and finally, I went back forth from Paranaque to UP Diliman to work out the requirements for my graduate school application. But all is well now! I’m super done. Earlier, I submitted my application and now I just have to wait for the results. In a few days, I will also be posting my Caramoan travel diary series. Now, there’s nothing left to do but more forward! Hurray!

I finally managed to find some time to finish my overdue Davao City Travel Diary. It’s been more than a month now after the trip but the surreality of that experienced is still clearly etched in my mind. On our third and last day in Davao, I’ve discovered the places and things that made me finally fall in love with the place. After that day, I was finally able to say… I won’t mind going back to Davao City for a third time.
We were schedule to start our island hopping tour at 7:00 AM so we woke up very early. While waiting for the boat, Bounty Hounter, and the boatman we decided to stroll first around Kaputian area and bought bread for breakfast and some snacks to eat during the tour proper. When we got back to the inn, we surprised to hear someone greeting us, “Pangit, pangit! (Ugly, ugly!)”. Turns out that someone was actually a parrot that can say all sorts of stuff from pangit and magandang umaga (Good morning) but not gwapo (handaome) and maganda (beautiful).
Earlier this year, YG Entertainment announced that Big Bang is going to have a world tour. When it was revealed that they will be coming to the Philippines, I literally jumped off my seat and promised myself I will be there when they hold their first concert in the country. So I and my friends, Me-an and Sheila, paid close attention as to when the tickets will be released and when it was finally up on sale, we were probably among the ones who bought tickets at the very hour tickets sales were opened. After almost two months of waiting, October 24 finally came and boy, I have nothing to say but: FANTASTIC BABY!
For every travel, I usually write a travel diary but I seldom write anything about new restaurants that I and my friends discover. I am not really a foodie but since I have friends who are, then I also became a foodie by default. So I decided to feature some of the restaurants that I’ve been to and share my eating experience. I’ll start with the restaurant we tried out when we went to Cebu: Dong Juan.
Dong Juan offers all the fast food we love from burgers, fries, pasta and pizza but with a different twist. Everything has been upscaled that one would thought it’s almost a fine dining restaurant. There are a lot of goodies on their menu but of course I did not want to miss out their famous burger so I ordered a cheeseburger (~Php 200) for myself. Didn’t knew it would be big as this:
The burger was greaaaaaaat. One of the best I had in my entire life. The patty had the right juiciness and the cheese did a good job of enriching the Dong Juan burger experience. The burger was also so huge that I had to cut it into four so I could bite properly. I wouldn’t mind ordering another one if someone can tell me if there’s a Dong Juan branch here in Manila.
