Answering the Call of Adventure on Tarak Ridge


Ever since I left my college mountaineering club in the University of Santo Tomas, I have trekked to the mountains few and far between. It felt like a romantic separation that left me searching for ways to reconnect with. I would plan hiking trips here and there, only to shelve it in favor of a trip to the beach. Despite my deep interest in hiking taking a backseat, the call of the great outdoors remained loud and I know that it was just only a matter of time before I stepped on the jagged Philippine mountains again.

Keep Chasing Spectacular Wow Moments | A Birthday Essay


It was a bipolar year once again. Just the way I like it. The Gods know me really well. Another set of 360 days and so, filled with sprinkled moments of ‘spectacular wow’, sandwiched with threadbare bouts of sadness, just passed by.

There is something beautiful in reveling in sadness”, given happiness’ brilliance in showering positive energy to my life, I must pay homage to the role of the 'blues’ in shaping the way I look at the world. Without it, my pursuit of bliss will go down in an unremarkable manner.

Traveloka | the Legit Go-to Travel App for Flights and Hotel Bookings

As a travel writer I always find myself needing to book a flight or an accommodation almost spontaneously. Most of the time when I am on the tail-end of travel writing assignment, I extend my trip in order to cover more places. And in each time, I always score myself cheap flights and hotels via Traveloka – which I now consider as my go-to travel app. There has been a lot of apprehensions whenever a traveler books a flight through third-party app other than a website’s official app. I understand where the doubts are coming from, but I guarantee that I have never experienced even a slight problem with my numerous bookings made via Traveloka.
