Sunrise Dive with Katherine Cure at Apo Island scuba diving
Sunrise Dive with Katherine Cure at Apo Island
(Aug 21, 2006) Early the following day, I joined Katherine on a sunrise dive to watch Lion fish behavior at the break of light. Apparently, fish behavior vary radically at dusk. It's feeding time and the otherwise melancholy fish becomes Attila the Hun in search of blood. It was still dark when we went to shore where a boat was waiting for us. Watching Kat do her thing...more »»

Free Diving at Mamsa Point, Apo Island
(Aug 20, 2006) We were just chilling out at Harolds Mansion when talk got around about joining the maiden voyage of Harold's 30-meter boat to Apo Island for some fun snorkeling and scuba diving. I didn't really feel like scuba, but I was dialed-in for some free-diving. Whoohoo...more »»

Dauin Muck Dive with Harolds Mansion Crew

This would be the first time I'd see someone fight-off a Titan Triggerfish...more »»

Painitan Breakfast restaurant review
Painitan Breakfast
(Aug 6, 2006) For an honest to goodness bang-for-the-buck breakfast, nothing beats the budbud selection and native chocolate drink and coffee at Dumaguete Public Market's painitan section. The array of stalls number in the dozen, each serving its own blend of hot chocolate drink, coffee and its own recipe of budbud. Early morning crowd could pile-in, spanning a broad social spectrum - from the laborer to the town mayor . It's a local social hub where gossip could go viral ...more »»

The Harolds Mansion Experience traveling
The Harolds Mansion Experience
(Jul 31 - Aug 21, 2011) When I got kicked-out of Valencia, I was left frantically looking for a new home. I did find one, but it won't be available until 3 weeks after. Luckily, there was Harolds Mansion that became home for the next 3 weeks. Given the 16 months I had been here in Dumaguete/Valencia, I would have to say the happiest I'd been was in those 3 weeks. Lesson? Careful what you wish might actually get it!...more »»
