Some people can’t handle chill

These are snippets of his break time amid the horrifying realities he faces daily – especially on Instagram where…

Sigaw ng Surigao: Visit Enchanted River and Tinuy-an Falls

Amazing how we can be at one point one minute and miles away the next, just like that. I say this because my recent trip all the way South of the Philippines in Surigao del Sur, Mindanao sent me hopping on a 2-hour plane ride to Davao and enduring an additional 8-hour bus ride down…
