Summer Peace Festival 2013, Cagayan de Oro cc
Summer Peace Festival 2013, Cagayan de Oro
(Apr 26-28, 2013) The poster talked about music, culture, nature, spirituality, freedom, art, peace and yoga. It immediately got my attention. Images of Woodstock and Burning Man filled my mind...of course, tempered within these constraints - culture, church and government. I didn't really expect seeing people running around naked and fire dancing. I was more curious how permissive it could be. I checked-out of my hotel and started heading for the event.....more »»

Visiting Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan traveling
Visiting Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan
(Apr 24, 2013) The most popular waterfall in the Philippines sits in the forested area of Iligan just a short jeep ride from the city proper. The area within the waterfall has been developed to include a canopy walk, ziplining, and soon, white water rafting. Iligan boasts of 23 waterfalls, thus the nickname, City of Waterfalls.....more »»

Del Monte Roast Beef and Pineapple food
Del Monte Roast Beef and Pineapple
(Apr 21, 2013) Being in Cagayan de Oro (near Bukidnon), there is a lot of hype about Bukidnon's Del Monte pineapples and roast beef. I was told by several people that the sweetest pineapples they've had was Del Monte, but you can't buy them outside the plantation. The good ones are earmarked for export, and the rejects are the ones that find its way in Cagayan de Oro's public markets. I was also told that Del Monte's roast beef is legendary - that it's the benchmark for all roast beef restaurants to look up to...that it's often imitated but not duplicated. Given the level of rhetorics, the expectation is naturally high. Now, it's time to put the rhetorics on a litmus test - on my palate.....more »»

It's 1039 meters long along an underground river with low lying stagmites, deep pools, cathedral-like caverns, narrow passage ways and most interestingly, a submerged exit out of the cave....more »»

Chavez's Death...Inoculated Cancer?
(Apr 7, 2013) I couldn't help but think that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez would soon be dead of "natural causes" after delivering a speech to the UN Assembly in September 2006 where he called then-US president George W. Bush, the "devil". Chavez has long been a critic of the USA and its foreign policy. True enough, Hugo Chavez is now dead of cancer...more »»

Abundance and Letting Go traveling
Abundance and Letting Go
(Apr 5, 2013) Unlike most places where I can leave without thinking twice about it, Cagayan de Oro is special. I had to think many times over if I should be stupid enough to leave this spontaneous overflow of abundance....more »»
