Hello Tagbilaran! traveling

Hello Tagbilaran!

(June 19-25, 2017) Tagbilaran is the first small city I've encountered without an SM, Robinsons or an Ayala Mall - my unfounded benchmark for a progressive city. I therefore thought Tagbilaran was backward and sleepy for that reason. I was in for a rude awakening!....more »»

Exploring Panglao

(June 12-18, 2017) After staying in Panglao for 7 days, it was time to move on. But it was a fun-filled 7 days of beach combing, scuba diving, freediving, hearty eats, yoga, meditation, socials and exploration with the incredible people of Bohol....more »»

Yoga with Ging and Rai at Oasis Resort

(June 18, 2017) With my 2 Bohol yogini friends Ging and Rai, we pursued our yoga practice at Oasis Resort on the top resto overlooking the beach - full Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, Point-of-Failure Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga with all the trimmings. A sumptuous breakfast followed at the resort's garden spread...more »»

Bohol Revisited traveling

Bohol Revisited

(June 12, 2017) Feeling like I've over-extended my stay in Cebu City, it was time to pack-up again and hit the open road. Exploring Bohol excited me more than anywhere else in the country. That's all I needed - the feeling of excitement. That's how my universe talks to me - and it has never been wrong. Bohol it is!....more »»

Lazarus

(June 12, 2017) From out of a fleeting and written-off past, from a different place and social circle, a dear old friend with whom I had such an affection to, unexpectedly shows up in Cebu - like Lazarus arising from the dead.....more »»

Palm Grass Hotel Food Tasting

(June 10, 2017) I made a web-pitch for a hotel ad campaign to Palm Grass Hotel. Instead, I received an invite to participate in their food tasting event which will grace their up-and-coming new menu. If I can't have a roof over my head, at least I'll have good food in my belly...more »»

Qube Gallery's Ako si Sabel / Balay-Balay Art Exhibit

(June 8, 2017) I like Qube Gallery. Whenever in Cebu and there's an exhibition, I make it a point to be there. I'm lucky this time with a double feature. Is it the art? Not as much as meeting new people in the art scene. Yeah, flowing wine helps too...more »»

Ambushed by SM Seaside

Cebu Living

(May 4-31, 2017) It never fails. Even though Cebu remains largely unchanged with the exception of its increasingly crippling traffic, the energies are as dynamic as it gets. Cebu offers a different flavor and experience with every visit.....more »»

Conducting Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation Classes in Cebu yoga

Conducting Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation Classes in Cebu

(May 26, 2017) It is not usual for studio offerings to include pranayama and meditation into a yoga asana class. But having benefited so much from my private practice where I integrate pranayama and meditation, I can only conduct a yoga class now with all three elements bundled together as a singularity. I find synergy in it...more »»

Downhill Riding with Cebu MTB Adventure

(May 13, 2017) It's been ages since I was on the saddle. With Cebu MTB Adventure tagging me to come along for a downhill riding tour, I was curious how it could be different from my experience as a cross-country rider. With my new hardtail, I wondered if I still had the juice...more »»

A Life of Suffering? I Disagree lucid

A Life of Suffering? I Disagree

(Apr 24, 2017) Buddha claims that all life is suffering caused by selfish craving and personal desire. Christianity claims that we are born into suffering with Original Sin from Adam and Eve. Islam says suffering is built into the fabric of existence so that Allah may see who is truly righteous. In Judaism, suffering was thought to be the ultimate form of divine purification leading to unio mystica. I ponder. Why should life default to suffering? I have a limited mind, limited thinking and a limited life experience - but I disagree.....more »»
