Strong Current? No Problem! I've been scuba diving with long fins for one year now and I super love it. I totally recommend it  to anyone who wants to breeze through diving strong current. I finally bought my long fins early last year (2016) for my Komodo dive trip...

10 years of blogging and 10 reasons why I blog

10 years seems like a long time, but it oddly didn't feel like I've been blogging for that long. Perhaps the time just went by so fast, or perhaps it's because I don't post that often. Haha. My blog began 10 years ago with the first published post entitled Europe Trip...

Day Trip in Bali — Uluwatu

When I was in Bali for the first time 7 years ago, I remember saying that it's nothing special and one's better off going to Boracay instead. I was obviously on some kind of meds for thinking that. I have taken back that statement since. I think Bali is amazing and is...

Trip of Wonders — Catch the Sunrise at Borobudur

I am really happy for the chance to visit Borobudur Temple again. The last time I was there in 2009, my camera (Canon G9) broke while inside the Borobudur Temple. I did get some photos but no decent selfies because there were no iPhone yet in 2009. I had to use a...

Diving South Maldives on Live Aboard (Part 2 of 2)

So I was saying that we survived diving South Maldives, but that we had a messy first day. To be up to speed, read  here Diving South Maldives (Part 1). As expected, there were a lot of emotions flying around after that dive. There were traumatized divers, angry...

Hard Diving South Maldives on Live Aboard (Part 1)

I survived diving South Maldives! This would be a good way to sum up my one week diving South Maldives on Live Aboard. I bet this is the common feeling, not only of my 21 boat mates, but also the divers of the 2 trips before ours. I know because I have friends on both...

Backpack Flags

In the beginning of my trip, a friend gave me a backpack flag of Israel. Since it was the first country, it seemed like a cool idea to fill my bag with flags as I go along. But it turned out backpack flags isn’t as popular as fridge magnets, postcards or mugs as travel souvenirs. In fact, I forgot all about this plan of collecting flags. I don’t think I encountered them at all in Europe.

The Galapagos: The Ultimate Dive

Acacia Resort and Dive Center

There are 3 destinations for SNUPS, right? Batangas, Cebu, and Dumaguete. My travel schedule only permits me to join the Batangas leg, which is absolutely fine because diving Anilao is at least top 3 destination for diving in the Philippines. My point being, because...

Dive Gears List

If it's not evident in this blog, I'm a bit of a diveaholic. As I take off for my BIG trip, I'm going to miss diving tremendously and my gears. This post is a tribute to it and also for the purpose of record, lest someone borrowed something and didn't return it. :)...
