Wow Philippines


My Lakbayan grade is C+!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out atLakbayan!

Created by Eugene Villar.


Not bad, eh? I'm surprised to have gained this score, when most of the people I know got stuck with Cs or Ds (peace). And then I remembered I used to travel a lot when I was in high school, joining contests and such (mostly writing/journalistic events). My school would sponsor it which basically means free everything.

Then come college, I was given opportunities to travel wherever CEGP (College Editor's Guild of the Philippines) held their infamous national conferences. All I had to bring was my pocket money.

There were times in my life when I would come home only for two weeks and off to traveling again. Especially in my high school senior year, when all the good stuff came rushing in. The furthest I went is to the SOCSARGEN region. Stayed there for more than a week. All I could remember was that everything I ate was tuna-- tuna longganisa, tuna hotdog, sinigang na tuna, adobong tuna, tuna tocino, and a bunch of other tuna delicacies, especially when I was at General Santos City.

Maybe if I had gone to Boracay, Puerto Galera, and Bohol last summer, I would've gotten a B-.

Hala restless traveler. Grabe idol kita.

Because I never really haven't been out in the borders of Metro Manila. As in NCR at Region IV lang ang nadadatnan ng mga paa ko.

Pretty weird because I've been to Tokyo and New York. :p

LOL, how said am I? I got an F! Yeah, but that's because I've only been to 2 places (barely) in the Philippines. I've lived in Canada for almost all of my life! I've got an excuse, hahaha.

One day, I shall return... with much Douglas MacArthur fanfare... + pigeons released to the skies and trumpets blaring in the air! Haha.

I'd like to meet some of the bloggers (incl. you) I've been stalking online, haha.

Boracy, Puerto Galera, Manila. And my relatives in Bulacan, of course... first stop.

The few places I've been to are Calamba in Mindanao, Siquijor island, and I'm currently here in Cebu! I'm originally from Dumaguete! Have plans to go to Bohol and Tagaytay! And outside the country, Singapore (maybe this year!)

Nako, I think I will fail at his Lakbayan test. Counted ba yung mga dinadaanan na probinsya?

Let's see..
La Union - nagpunta kami sa Agoo, dahil sa nagmimilagrong birhen dun
Pangasinan - Our Lady of Manaoag related.
Baguio - for 2 days only.
Zambales - one of 2 instances na nakapag-beach ako
Laguna - elementary fieldtrips
Batangas - high school retreat
And of course, Metro Manila, cos I study there..
