Aba't biglang humaba pala ang kuwentuhan dine, tagal ko ding nawala. I enjoy your works karlo. Anyway, you know whats the next logical thing to do-POST MORE! Luv the interior of the Church.

I like to qoute this:
Sharing some words from Baz - "Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum."

Add ko lang ano about fear & worrying (wag lang too much), its actually productive why? becoz it's where all our senses are functioning. Pag may problema ka example & maghanap ka ng lutas, klase klaseng solution (rational & irrational) pumapasok  & thats where we used our under-utilize brain. From there the brain directs the rest of our also under utilize senses to work.

'When we have fear, we are strong' i guess is true coz explain mo nga ba't ma-alsa ng payatin na tao ang malaking ref sa nasunog nyang bahay?

Truly inspirational work here, Karlo. Thanks also for sharing the EXIF on your posts, so that us newbies can learn a thing or two from you. I hope I can do the same when I go to Palawan next month. The only challenge is that there are already a lot of photos from that place. I really need to be more creative on that trip.

Cheers!

thanks patrick! I've never been to Coron and I'm sure it will be an adventure for you. Do post the images after so we can appreciate and leave constructive criticisms. good luck sir!

Just came back from a 4 day business trip to  Thailand, so busy the past week. Anyways, its glad to be back here in Pipho sharing images to all. :)

In the town of Maluay,Zamboangita 35 kms away from Dumaguete you can reach Malatapay Market. Inside the busy part of Maluay, you can see the port going to Apo Island. We went there around 4am to catch a boat so we can shoot sunrise at the other side of Apo. Unfortunately, locals find the shark infested waters and strong waves too perilous to have a trip that early.

So just to wait and kill time we shot sunrise at Malatapay coastal. Good thing there are interesting foreground at that area and the sunrise isn’t that bad at all! See the island there? That’s Apo!

Magandang hapon kaibigan Kamusta ka? :) Hindi ko masyado naasikaso itong album dahil dami trabaho, tara merienda muna tayo dito sa beach. :)

Sitting 6-kilometers northeast of its city location, Maria, accessible through the port of Larena, the government-run Salagdoong Beach Resort boasts of its beautiful scenic treasures. Its shorelines could be considered its most loved views with its white sand, crystal-clear waters, and refreshing breeze.

Over at the Salagdoong Beach Resort, there is an islet close by. It’s beautiful to row to, and look back over at Salagdoong’s magnificent beachfront, which only leaves you gasping for more of Salagdoong, tucked mysteriously further amidst the coves. Salagdoong Beach Resort satisfies this urge as it provides all the amenities and services for tourists. This includes package tours in and through the private island’s best spots. - Siquijor Tourism

Magandang gabi kaibigan! kamusta ka? Tara snacks tayo dito sa talon na ito.:D

Casaroro falls is hidden deep inside the province of Valencia. Going there you have to rent a van (pho600-1000/ 20$) or drive from Dumaguete City roughly around 12km away. There’s only so much road going to Casaroro falls then you have to walk/hike for another 20-30min to reach the entrance. There’s a fee worth 10bucks, just a small amount to help the local government preserve and maintain the surroundings.

The 350 STEPS traversing down Casaroro constitutes of lush greens, cool breeze and sound of birds echoing! This must be one of the tallest and awesome falls I’ve been too. I almost forgot about Hagimit haha. It’s so clean and the rock formations are just great! Now, The PAIN starts at 200 steps going up!

Magandag Gabi kaibigan. Salamat sa pagsilip mo, tara biyahe tayo! :D My first sunrise in Apo Island. I was up early around 4am to check out the place. It was pitch black walking around Apo since electricity was cut that night at 9pm. The skies were filled with stars and I've never looked at the horizon that long it was Amazing. I saw a couple of shooting stars and it made me appreciate that time of the day more.

yup its famous for its diving spots sir and the lighthouse. accommodation around 1k-1.5k per night. But you can stay at the residences of the locals there. 500 lang per night electric fan, pero ayos naman cowboy lang.

Magandang tanghali kaibigan! tara lunch tayo dito sa tabi ng dagat ;D

These are the more expensive cottages in Apo Island. I didn't bother asking how much is the fee. ;D You have the entire beach front and a bar at the left most part. Usually the foreigners and balikbayans stay here where they spend their hard earned cash :D

I kept on going back to these rock formations at Apo due to its uniqueness! After shooting sunrise around 4am I went here to inspect the place at low tide. WOW, last night where I'm standing to take this shot was completely submerged! It showcased that morning awesome rocks and some sea-life crawling around it. The water is just a bonus to what I've seen that day!
