Amazing Escapades: Surigao del Sur


It was my marvelous escapades in my life. Char! I treated myself a nice and amazing escapades.

The day before my birthday, I went to Surigao del Sur to unwind and of course discover another fantastic views here in planet earth. I got only one thing to described, that escapades was awesome!

It took more or less six hours from Davao City to Surigao joyride. When we arrived in the poblacion of Mangagoy, we took our breakfast and some rest. First pit stop was the “Marvelous Tinuy-an Falls of Surigao”. Uhmmm… By the way, Why it is called Marvelous? Well, see it and you’ll find why is it called. Awesome!

It was a very nice and captivating falls, I can’t really imagine  myself  swimming and enjoying the heaven’s extraordinary place here on earth. It’s all I have to enjoy, so I grabbed the opportunity to indulged the place. Together with my friends and the rest of the nature lovers where there to have fun and see the wonder of the falls. Where very busy exploring the place that every move we made where taken by camera and video. Every single moment in the place is worthy. This is my total escapade so far…A nature lover like me…duh! doesn’t matter how far or near the place, as long as I enjoy myself on it.  Cold!

The Second pit stop was the Enchanted River. Truly it is enchanted…

After more or less two our of exploring the scenery of the fall, we pack up and headed to our next destination. It was my first time to see a river like a sea… bbblllluuuuueeee….. We had our lunch first and do some sight-seeing on the place before we took our swimming marathon. It’s great!

Hope to happen this again… Another escapades please…. 🙂


Hello: Happy Holidays

Hello guys…it’s been a while since I wrote my last entry. I had a very busy days working this past few days, weeks, months. Haaayyyy….

By the way, it’s nice to back again. I spent my Christmas at home and I’m very thankful that my family was in thier good health celebrating the holiday season. Thanks God! We had a lot of things done last Christmas. It was a perfect Christmas for me. We had our exchange gifts and some games.

Almost all of my friends greet me and me as well. It is a season of sharing, forgiving and reflect that Baby Jesus was born.

So in the end it is not only Christmas that we should be going to share our blessings, to forgive nor reflect. We loved God in so many ways so we must share the blessings that the God gave us.

Happy holidays!!!!

Beach Hopping

Last November 1, 2009 we got our best outing as what I experienced here in MATI, DAVAO ORIENTAL. We had our beach hopping in all around the beaches here in MATI.


p00I had my very good friends here in MATI that give me this opportunity to explore the wonders of the place. The first stop was known by its cottages on the sea. You have to walk through a bridge with their cottages was on the sea level. Nice one! We spent our night there and had a awesome bath early in the morning.


Second stop, DAHICAN:


DAHICAN is just like BORACAY…its wonderful clear blue water made me excited to swim.



MAYO is known by its cold lagoon…try this one.

It was a very wonderful experienced. Even though I went home (DAVAO CITY) late…still it was no regrets to have companions like this…


I am here: Mati City, Davao Oriental

My friends… I am here in Mati City, Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines, South East Asia, Earth.

As I was talking on my last post that I will be moving again to another place…maybe I should say that… I was moved and been to another location again. Ho! It has been getting any longer to travel from my home (Davao City, Davao del Sur) than it was like before when I was in Tagum City.

I’ve been here last May 04, 2009. It takes more or less five (5) hours of travel from Davao City to Mati City. It’s been a long travel that’s why I haven’t got an idea to take some pictures on my way (aside that I wasn’t be able to have my cam with me) for the reasons that I was sleepy on a long travel. I slept. Hahahahhah!

When I’m on my way, I was be able to visualized the place. On what is Mati City look alike. I had been heard that the place has a lot of beaches and had a nice spots to unwind. I was excited and nervous at the same time. It is my first time to go to the place and work. Good luck to me.

For more than two weeks in Mati, the words that I can only say is adventure and challenge. Why?…uhm, for a week I be able on getting to know the place and the people. The place was on its hottest spots. Aside that its economy is exceeding, Govenment also want to promote the place and to invite investors to do business in the virgin white sand beaches of Mati. Yes! Beaches… Mati City has on its way to be proud of. The City had a lots of virgin beaches to explore on and I tried it.

I have been to Gregorio Beach Resort and *Masao Beach. It was a great experience and totally different aura of  what Masao is. Indeed, Mati is the best-kept secret of Davao Region.

masaoI had gone to thier wonderful *Church at Mt. Carmel, Tua-Tua Road, Barangay Matiao, here in Mati City.


I had taken a nice look of thier captivating spot which they say the sleeping dinosaur in *Pujada Island. Truly fascinating!… I wonder if it is truly a dino sleeping. shhh….it might wake up!

There are a lot of places in Mati that are truly haven. They say that Dahican is one of the most popular destinations in Mati with clear waters and had a 17-kilometer pure and fine white sand shore. I will surely say that Dahican would be the next place I want to explore. See you soon Dahican.

Truly Mati is a place worth to be discover. I am here, got challenged…now I explore.

Words I’ve poundered

Things you need to know but I’m telling…

è    all shrimp are born female, but turns to male as time goes.

è    Starfishes are pretty but they don’t have brains, so be offended if someone calls you one.

è    Penguins can only have one mate; they spend almost half of their life looking for their destined partner, and then spend the rest of it with him/her.

How sweet is that? I don’t know if you find those amusing?

But I do and I hope you find your penguin.




Choose to be gentle than forceful. If you have to raise your voice, let it only in praise; if you have to clench your fist, let it only be in ardent prayer; and when you make demands, let it only be on yourself. Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Focus on making things better not bigger. Live within your means and delight in simple things.

Patrick: “ Wait for you to come back. ”

         The true essence of friendship –

I’m 1 month…

It’s just by then when I started to post an entry regarding on my new place to work on and now I’m on my one month to the said place. Well, exploring the place in one month was totally good and now that I’m extending my duty to the place, I guess I’ll be giving more information to the place on my next entry,  I guess.

I got more adjustments, having the first consern that I’m away on my family. It was a difficult to live with a new people. Without even knowing what’s their atttitudes and traits, but thanked God I survived!

I got a nice and good officemates and peers. It is just to take a few minutes to recall my family away from me when I’m with them. Although I missed my family a lot, still I have this spirit to continue my work and tried to be away with them, even for a single time or more.

So far, so good…

My journey to the new place

From this point of time, I had a chance to take some photos with the place where I was working. My good friend Dude toured me on the city and help me with this picture taking effect to make this entry a nice and entertaining one. I hope so. Well to get it started…cimg1006

On the first pit stop was the City logo in front of the City Hall, Tagum City. The City of Tagum was the capital province of Davao del Norte. A two hours travel, more or less from Davao City. Tagum was officially created into a City on March 07 , 1998.

I had a chance to get into the Malls and other establishments where the City was highly viable component to do business. I be able to tour and explore the NCCC Mall Tagum, JS Gaisano and Gaisano Mall.cimg1013

For a one day tourist in the city, it was a nice and wonderful experienced to dwell with the place.


I was got fascinated on the huge and amazing Church that the place has. It is a total perfection. The Christ the King Cathedral.

It was a tiring but yet happy tour to explore the place. I thanked Dude for his patience that I treated him as a tourist guide and at the same time photographer. But I guess, I got your bill paid with all your efforts. Hope to hire you again next tour. Hahaha…
