AMUSING ROCKS FORMATIONS IN TICAO ISLAND, MASBATE

These images were taken during my travel from Pilar, Sorsogon to Masbate City aboard a "pump boat". I realized that there are advantages and disadvantages of the unstable sailing schedule of seacraft from Pilar to Masbate and vice versa.

Disadvantages
The very frustrating thing about the cancellation of the scheduled trip is that your personal schedule will be ruined. Time bound activities and travels were be affected so much. Alternate kind of transportation -the pumpboat- is time consuming. Its speed is just half of the speed of the fastcraft. The heat that you feel and uncomfortable seats also adds insult to injury. And of course, the security of the voyage is being compromised. The smaller and the slower the vessel, the more vulnerable to big waves in the middle of the sea.

SUN, SAND, SEA & SIGHTS IN SAGNAY, CAMSUR

Nato Beach, Sagnay, Camarines Sur, The nearest beach from home. My family and friends come here almost every year because of its accessibility. Less than an hour land travel from Pili, Capital town of Camarines Sur. Nato beach has gray sand and wavy water due to its location-facing Pacific Ocean. Waves that sometimes could reach up to 5 ft high during windy season are very suitable for surfing.

During summer, lot of people comes here to experience the beach and the waves. Usually they're from Pili, Naga, Bula and Partido area. Nato beach also held the Sangay's Baybayon Festival (to be posted later on). 

SHOWING TEAMWORK IN NATO BEACH, SAGNAY

Human pyramid. These activity needs strength, coordination and teamwork in order to be built. Every time the group has gone to an outing, especially swimming, building a human pyramid is one of the activity ,beside from drinking spree, that never be forgotten since then. Almost every summer we build a human pyramid and never give up until we succeed. It requires patient and so many trials before a successful one. So many falls will happen but during each and every fall, new determination arises. And it feels good and satisfied if you can build just one.

BREAKING DAWN AT THE SEACRAFT IN MASBATE


I woke up early morning on the seacraft I am aboard and see the beautiful sun as it is rising out of the sea. The scene encourages me to get my digicam and capture the beautiful scenery. In these images, the ship is about to dock at the Cataingan port in the province of Masbate. The sun shines over the other side of the ship and on the other side, blue and green images of nature are captured by my camera, very refreshing sights.

On this travel, I have been to Cebu for a training going back to Masbate via RORO bus. It took 12 hours travel from Cebu to Masbate. 4 hour land, 6 hours sea and 2 hours land again.

CAGAYAN DE ORO: DARK SKIES IN THE GOLDEN CITY OF FRIENDSHIP


My first time here in Cagayan De Oro City, Northern Part of Mindanao. This is the City of Golden Friendship from the name itself, "Oro" means gold. I'm here for a series of trainings. These images were taken from the venue of our training in Chali Beach Resort. During our break, I go outside to take a look at the sea when I noticed the dark clouds. In our place the sun was shining bright so, I was so amazed of that peculiar weather condition. It just seem like clouds chose to gather only on that part of the island. It is like that the skies is ready to flood the place. A wrath by a god, ready to give his punishment. And his anger will be felt by all of the creatures on that place. The sea was also seemed ready for what will happen and it is sympathizing with the sky, by imitating its dark color.
