2 Days of Sand(y) at Malapascua



Last weekend I made a trip to Malapascua with my friend Sandy. It was a spontaneous trip that came to fruition only after a few nonsense chatting over what to do on a weekend. I was able to find cheap tickets from Cebu Pacific last week and hurriedly penciled out the last weekend for this whirlwind incursion north of the province of Cebu.

Capones Island Lighthouse


I've been to Capones island four times already and thrice I climbed over to the lighthouse which was just a few walks upward away. My first published travel article was all about Capones Island. This time though we took the longer route since our temperamental boatman does not like the idea of docking near the lighthouse, didn't mattered though as it was still a fairly easy hike of around 45 minutes coming from the back of Capones that faces the Pundaquit shoreline.

No Flush Toilet but Sublime Humming at Nagsasa Cove


Nagsasa cove is about 20 minutes away from Anawangin cove, it is less crowded and popular but provides a more ideal place for those looking for a place to camp for the weekend that is neither chaotic nor depressing.

Mystical, Maniacal Reefer Madness at Apo Reef


One of the best things in going to a place like Apo Reef is it gives me the chance to remain on one place for an extended time and not worry bout hitting other places. Just relaxing under the sun like a convict with time in his hand but has a boundless freedom as far as the journey that brought us here, while humming along with Weezer's "Island in the Sun"

"When you're on a holiday, you can't find the words to say. All the things that come to you. And I wanna feel it too....No, No, we'll never feel bad anymore" (hip) (hip)....
