Posted by on Nov 30, 2011 in Trek | 0 comments

On the morning of November 13, 2011 right before the controversial Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight, I was browsing through Google Maps when I spotted the La Mesa Dam Eco Park. A few weeks earlier, my friend, Eufer, had posted some pictures when he went to the park. I was also looking for an interesting place to bring my dogs. So on this morning, I decided to take a quick trip to finally see the Eco Park which is somewhat nearby to where I live in Quezon City.

The day after our tour of Mayon Volcano and Vera Falls, we were now up and ready to go swimming with the Whale Sharks or “Butanding”.

Capones Island and to Anawangin Cove, Zambales – June 1, 2010

Posted by on Jun 5, 2010 in Beach, Roadtrip, Trek | 30 comments

I made the trip again with my officemates at work. This was our team offsite. A great opportunity to discuss a number of work-related matters in a very far-removed office setting. What makes this trip also interesting is that this takes place on a weekday… which contributes to some rather interesting observations of Anawangin Cove.
