📍 Oslob, Cebu

Enjoy whale watching in Oslob, South of Cebu. These amazing creatures are so friendly yet they’re so big! Friendly giants indeed.

Let us protect our oceans & seas by not throwing our garbage anywhere. Let’s minimize the use of single use plastics like straws and the like.

We are not the only living beings that need a better environment, a better world. The animals, the plants, us, we need a cleaner world, we can achieve this through discipline, proper knowledge & compassion.

Here are some snippets of my Oslob Whale Watching:

What if

“You could have loved me better if I had loved myself more” – he whispered.

Stuck in the moment

Written along blurred lines

Our story may have been.

Back and forth, my love

You cannot change what is deemed.

Heartless

You seem to be cold with me

Yet I know I was the one to blame.

I once was warm and happy

Now I’m heartless and in pain.

Free Time

It’s been a while since I’ve updated anything here in the blog. I’ve been having a hard time balancing my time for my day job, school and the blog. I’ve been wanting to write about so many things, so many places and food and so much more. I’ll make it up to you guys 🙂

I hope you have no problem with balancing your time too, set your priorities and plan ahead. A good way to achieve something is to have a plan.

Will be posting soon! Thank you & I love you ❤️

Ps, here’s what the beach after sunset looked like:

Love, Tim 🍉

DIGYO: Stole My Heart

 IMG_8594.JPG

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life awaits the Cuatro Islas of Leyte. Four uniquely beautiful islands with pristine coastlines. I was enchanted to have roamed one of the four. Digyo, the smallest but the most alluring of them all captured my heart.

The journey starts with a boat ride from the port and in around 30 to 45 minutes travel time. Mind you, the waves there can be a challenge, so I suggest, you travel in the morning but if you’re an adventure junkie you might as well keep up with the waves. Once you reach the island you’ll see below the white sand and the different marine animals lurking therein. The island features nothing less than untouched beauty. Locals are few, there are only eight houses in the island and solar panels power the island lamp posts. Please charge your phones and cameras or bring many power banks as possible.

At night time, the wind is chilly but not biting. I, myself, slept in the sand and it was an amazing experience, no tents, no mosquito repellents, no reservations, just a blanket. The best part of that night was the glorious skyline full of stars because it’s far from light pollution. You’ll certainly get in touched and feel one with nature.

You’d definitely need to bring sea goggles. The view below is as amazing as the view above. If you have underwater cameras then you’d definitely have a blast.

Sunbathing is a must, but please, put on some sunscreen to protect the skin you’re in. There aren’t enough tall trees that could shade you in the seashore.

I’d definitely go loco for some cocos. There are a lot.

If you have a soft spot for seafoods, then you better gear up because the island offers so many different fresh produce. From shells, to different varieties of fish. Surely, it would be a gastronomic feast. Simple life hack: Bring someone who knows how to cook! Numnum

Perhaps the best thing that the island gave to me was taking away a part of something that I needed to let out that I have kept in for quite sometime. I can’t lie, I really have a soft spot for beaches. They usually take my stress away. The best and humane form of pain relievers and water therapy at its finest.

I’d definitely be back. The three islands better be ready.

Tim.

Nagmahal. Nasaktan, Nag move-on at Nag blogger.

Sino ba naman ang hindi nakaranas na ng heartbreak? Manhid lang at yung mga self denial ang mga nasasabi na hindi sila nakarasan ng ganun. Tao tayo, at lalong hindi talaga tayo BAGAY.

Siguro narasan mo ng mainlove sa isang tao na binigay mo na ang lahat, pera mo, oras mo, pati katawan mo muntik mo ng ibigay, pero wala eh, hindi mo alam kung manhid siya or hindi ka lang niya talaga type. Kung ako ang tatanungin mo? Oo naranasan ko nayun. Masakit talaga kasi di niya ako mahal, pero mas masakit kung pinaasa ka lang, pinagmukha ka pang tanga. Okay na sana yun kasi at first alam mo na hindi talaga kayo pero bakit ganun besh, pinaramdam niya na parang meron. PINARAMDAM NIYA besh. Sabi nga nila, “smart people are dumb when it comes to love” paano nga ba yun? Matalino ka nga pero bakit nagpakabobo ka sa kanya? Ang sakit besh, ang sakit sakit. Gusto mong mag move on kaso hindi mo magawa. Gusto mong kalimutan siya pero ayan siya nag pi-pm sayo sa fb, na block muna nag friend request kapa ulit. Tanga kana, walang hanggang nagpapakatanga sa kanya.

Paano ka nga ba mag move on?

Hinding hindi ka makakapag move on kasi nagrereply ka sa mga chat nya. Nagbabakasakali ka na baka sana, sana sabihin niya na mahal ka niya. Well, isa kang tanga. Drunk messages at texts nga, pinapatulan mo. Chat pa kaya? Hala lerd tanga ka talaga.

So eto ako ngayon nagbabakasakali na makamove on. Gusto mo malaman kung paano? HETO NA BESH:

  1. Seen mo lahat ng chat niya.
  2. Delete mo number niya.
  3. Iwasan mo ang mga bagay at gawain na maalala mo siya gaya ng pagkain ng spaghetti, pagpunta sa plaza, pagkain ng hotdog, paglalakad sa gitna ng ulan, pagkain ng siopao, pagpunta sa clubs, sa national bookstore, pagbasa ng libro, pag gawa ng assignments, pagliligo sa pool at marami pang iba. So paano nato? Iwas iwas paba din ba?
  4. Huwag kang makipagkita sa kanya kapag gusto niyang makipag kita sayo… destiny na ang bahala kung magkikita talaga kayo. Lintik na destiny na yan.
  5. DELETE mo lahat ng pictures meron kayo, selfies, groufies at shoefies, cut out mo na rin sya sa yearbook mo. HAHA
  6. Isauli mo lahat ng meron ka na pag mamay-ari niya, notebook niya, papel niya, scratch paper, shades, pati shirts isauli mo na rin.

Marami pa akong naiisip na ilagay dyan kaso mukhang useless eh kasi hindi ko naman kayang gawin.

You know what? Sa totoo lang. Hindi naman talaga mahirap mag move on kung hindi mo lang siya minahal. I once read a quote that says “pain makes it authentic”. Kung nagmahal ka lang naman handa kang masaktan, handa mong tanggapin na baka panandalian lang to at baka hindi talaga kayo. Wala namang masama kung mamahalin mo siya ng labis pa sa pagmamahal mo sa sarili mo, pero siguraduhin mo muna na pagnasaktan ka, marunong ka pa ring bumangon, magpatawad at eventually makalimot. Alam ko na hindi ganun kadali, pero kailangan eh. Kailan mong gawin yan para maging buo ka ulit. Because at the end of the day, kahit iniwan tayo, sinaktan, at pinaglaruan, at humugot na ng bonggang bonga ang pagiging buo natin ang makakatulong sa atin para maka move on at magparaya.

So ganun, hindi pa ako buo, hindi ko pa kayang mag move on.
