If you're feeling like Joaquin Phoenix because you are obsessed in finding your own version of Nicole Kidman, then you must be doing something wrong. Because you are looking at the wrong ones, the ideal woman do not stand long-legged nor has blonde hair and appear as a magazine cover girl - all the superficial package, but lacking the most important traits of all - The kick-ass level 9 and rising attributes. You know the girl in the "Twilight" movies who sits by the window and awaits for her man? nah-you won't read about that type in this post. Here is an impressive list of Filipina travelers who would make the Amelia Earhart's, Freya Stark's, Susan Calo Medina's and Kira Salak's of the world proud.

Not far from the already reveling atmosphere of Kalibo, where the drums of the Ati-Atihan festival is starting to produce a louder thud, lies a very tranquil and peaceful place covered by a lush mangrove forest. It is called the "Bakhawan Eco-Park", it is a result of the admirable efforts by various NGO's, LGU's and other Government Agencies with the supervision and management of the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), this almost 106 hectare natural paradise is now considered to be the biggest and most successful mangrove reforestation project in Asia.

Few people have had as storied and controversial history than one Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, or Che Guevara, as he is more commonly known. His resume jumps from medical school student, to president of Cuba’s national bank, to Marxist leader. Today, his face is a cultural icon, gracing the front of student t-shirts and art exhibits alike. The Maryland Institute of Art recently named the iconic picture of him with his black beret as the world’s most famous photo. With Cuba’s recent tourism resurgence, travelers can see firsthand the effects Che had on this independent island nation, and just maybe bring back the perfect memento in his honor.

My friend Chie and I has just gotten back to Roxas City from Kalibo where we attended the Ati-Atihan festival, when we decided to go to "Baybay" beach, which is located a few minutes from the town and the airport. Baybay beach has a long stretch of powdery sands that rivals Boracay. *I got hit by a shoe thrown by someone*. Okay, let me explain, what white sand beach is to Boracay, here at Baybay, the sands are colored gray, dark gray but fine sands nonetheless. Walking along barefoot produces that same sensation of soft granule, wet and cold comfort to your soles.

I can simply say "The big bell of Pan-ay Church and my bad-ass self" but no, traveling gives you the opportunity to see the vast fantastic of this world and sometimes you kind of scuttle and struggle to find the right adjectives to describe certain things and places you see. In this case, I have to channel my best Alex impersonation and throw in a couple of "A Clockwork Orange" slang to fittingly put a title to this blog post. The Bolshy Bell of Pan-ay Church is said to be the biggest of its own kind in Asia. It was completed in 1878 and its main materials consisted of 70 sacks of coins, cast together to create such gigantic bell, which also - at that time serves as the town's warning sign whenever there's an impending pirate attack.
