Living on Siquijor Island in the Philippines

Living on Siquijor Island in the Philippines

Some call it the Healing Paradise and I believe it is. This Island holds all: it is the Philippines in small. It has white beaches, waterfalls, dive sites, waterfalls, mountains, cliffs, and endless jungles trails. It has been over a year ago since I arrived on Siquijor Island, and I’m probably here to stay. If all goes well. I love this island and it’s magic. And it has a healing touch to all those arriving here in a buzz from…

Me and My Sony Action Cam, driving around

My son gave me his ‘old’ Sony HDR AS100 Action cam. And it has been in a drawer for weeks. I just didn’t get around to using it.

Maybe by doing so that made them the country that invented medical holidays, long before this phenomenon occurred on a larger scale and was commercialised. Every…

Fiesta in the Philippines

Fiesta in the Philippines

Every saint has it’s own day and every Barangay it’s own fiesta and there is a fiesta everyday somewhere in the Philippines, if not two or even more. On the island where I’m living there are a lot of fiesta’s. Basically it comes down to a lot of traffic on the road going to and fro and many people all over the place. I try to grasp the meaning of all that parties going on, and mostly it is about…
