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.

Stupid Elevators

It's been a while since I complained about things here, and I have a new one to b!tch about: the elevators of the building where I work.

The double-decker lifts of One San Miguel Avenue (OSMA) building in Ortigas is really starting to be a pain in the behinds of people who work there. Last week one elevator got stuck for several hours on two occasions, stranding workers in such a claustrophobic box.

On many occasions some the lifts don't work at all, which is really annoying especially if you're pressed for time, and there's no other way to ruin your day seeing scores of people queuing outside them.
