I awoke and saw sun glints peeking through my window shades. wow, sunshine. Time check: 7am. *groan* if only I can peel my back off the bed. I checked my mobile and saw Beth’s message that she will pass due to gloomy sky. I messaged back that I have sunshine outside my window but think it will not hold.

I just have to mention that your room will have balcony where...Read More
Sumilon Island is actually part of Cebu but is nearer to Dumaguete City. It is known for its crystal blue water and amazing visibility and of course, its marine sanctuary adopted by the Siliman University in Dumaguete. Sharks (whale sharks and hammer head) are occasionally spotted here hence the site called “Shark Avenue”. Needless to say, I couldn’t be more excited. We started quite early but getting in the boat, one of my fins were nowhere to be found! We searched our boat and the other boat but still they couldn’t find it. The dive shop’s setup was, at...Read More
