Beach bumming in Cancun

Spending a day at Cancun's amazing beaches - miles of white sand bordered by the azure Caribbean sea

Cenote Jumping in the Yucatan

Cenotes are naturally occurring sinkholes that dot the almost barren landscape of the Yucatan Peninsula. Jumping on it in a rope swim is one of the most exciting things I did in Mexico

Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago

Being in the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago is like stumbling inside Hangar 51 in Indiana Jones. The museum has everything that can be possibly dug up from the ground, including Aztec artifacts, gems and minerals and dinosaurs!

Coron, Palawan

The municipality of Coron is part of the Calamian group of islands north of Palawan. It is about an hour away by plane from Manila via Busuanga. Aside from the azure seas, white beaches and islets fenced with limestone cliffs, Coron has several magnificent wreck diving sites.

Traffic Jam

Traffic jams in Metro Manila during this year's holiday season is already approaching the nail-biting-hair-pulling level. Practically all roads in the metropolis are clogged with vehicles, and everybody seems busy to be everywhere. Usually the traffic would slack off at around nine p.m. but lately it extends up to the wee hours in the morning. Commuting too has become such a pain in the @$$, and finding an empty taxi during rush hour is like looking for a Maori person in Iceland.
