Simple, Beautiful, Dumaguete

I have never thought I'd like the City of Dumaguete so much. It was my first summer trip for 2013: Dumaguete-Siquijor.  Upon landing in Dumaguete Airport, Yan and I proceeded to the Island of  Siquijor via ferry and stayed there for a night.  Click here to read our overnight Siquijor trip.

This is more of a continuation of the Siquijor blog post, this was the second and final stop for our first trip this summer. Let's go to Dumaguete City...

From Siquijor we boarded Ocean Jet going back to Dumaguete Port. Click here for the info on ferry schedules and other details.

Mystical Siquijor: 2D-1N Island Tour

Island of witches, "kulam", "barang" - these are common concepts people usually connect to the island of Siquijor. Sometimes they also relate it to "aswang", which is totally wrong as this folklore is definitely not of Siquijor's.  It could be true that there are supernatural forces working or existing within the island, but I came here not mainly for this, but to experience the one of a kind beauty of this piece of wonder in the Visayan region of the Philippines.  Let's go to what was known as Isla del Fuego (Island of Fire) - Siquijor!

I have always wanted to visit this province as it was not so common for a holiday destination.  True enough, during our short stay there were very few Filipino tourists, however several groups of foreigners were there to enjoy the island, which I found quite surprising.  Maybe Filipinos are hesitant to visit the island because of the superstitions.

This trip was merely part of our Dumaguete-Siquijor trip, where we stayed 1 night in Siquijor and 2 nights in Dumagute City. Continuation to Dumaguete on a separate post.

10 Reasons Why I'm Crazy Over Ton Ton Thai Foot Massage

When Yan and I first tried Ton Ton's Thai foot massage, for only 30 minutes, we were overwhelmed. It was beyond what we expected.

What's so special about Ton Ton's foot massage? Let me enumerate 10 reasons why I am all crazy about it...

1. The lazy boy! It's a champion on its own. Relax and sleep on this super comfy reclining chair while you're being pampered.

2. The therapists are so courteous, professional and well-trained.

Learn to Sail with RYA Courses

People look at beach holidays in very different ways; while some love the peace and quiet and make the most of the relaxing location by doing very little that doesn’t involve sunbathing, others like to take the bull by the horns and do something to keep them active during their break away from reality. If you’re a usually active person, why would you want to vegetate for the duration of your sojourn when there are so many activities shouting to be tried?
