Is It Worth It for the TIME, EFFORT and BUDGET – Masasa Beach, Tingloy, Batangas.


Advertisement by Google:
One of my characteristics that I am really proud of – I’m really friendly. I have this personality wherein I can easily build a connection to random people. In fact my officemate and a friend of mine William Pombo, introduces me to his circle of friends “the Britney Army Philippines “ and it just happened that even if I didn’t consider Britney Spear as my goddess , they still welcome me and I am telling you guys, they’re really happy people.

To cut the short story long, after meeting them several times “official kaibigan ko na sila”, and I was invited to be part of their get away nung summer pa naman ito pero I decided to share this story sa inyo guys na late, as in “LATE” kasi tag-ulan na pero tsaka ko pa lang siya isusulat sa blog ko. Again, better late than never.  The said outing was   MAY 5,2018  - Two Months na ago sa Masasa Beach.

Masasa Beach is located  San Juan,, Tingloy, Batangas. I already heard the place and saw some blog post about it pero wala sa isip ko na puntahan ko talaga ang place kasi feeling ko malayo siya which is true malayo sya talaga. We departed at exactly 3AM May 5,2018 sa Buendia sa Bus Station, I forgot if it was JAM or JAC liner basta the one located beside Macdo, coz I remember we grabbed a bite first bago kami sumakay ng Bus.
Watch the video :

We took the bus heading to Batangas Grand Terminal which cost is around 150-180PHP each. (I can no longer remember) , then dropped off at Batangas Grand Terminal Mismo , the terminal na titigilan ng bus pag pupunta kayo ng batangas port if you’re going to Puerto Galera. Of course , you will no longer reach Batangas Port because you need to drop off at the said Bus Terminal dahil andon yung sakayan ng jeep na papuntang “Mabini Multi-purpose Port” , and it will take you 30-45mins teh. But we took an authentic Batangas Lomi for our lunch , naloka ako, ang siksik, liglig at umaapaw sa sahog teh. Oorder ka ng isang mangkok, I was under the impression na pang 1 pax lang, nako pang apat na tao. Kaya tuwang tuwa ako plus the fact that it was truly savory. Iba ang sarap ng Batangas Lomi teh, you can actually look for lomihan sa terminal. We left mga 5:30ARE heading sa Mabini Port via jeep. You don’t to worry, continues po ang jeep.

While kami nag aantay ng bangka.

When we arrived at Mabini port, at  6:30 AM naloka ako ! The port was not really a good port – not organized in comparison to Batangas port wherein you only pay 20PHP pero sa Mabini ,you have to pay a huge amount for environmental fee, not for the place na pupuntahan namin pero para sa Mabini na sadyang saglit lang naman kami dun.Well , not that I expected, ang haba ng pila teh, to pay the environmental fee, plus you have to wait sa Bangka.  Good thing, mga bakla kasama ko at masasaya kasama, we just did some crazy stuff during our idle time yet on the back of my mind, hindi siya nakakatuwa specially we’re talking “TIME” here na nasasayang.

Nakasakay kami ng Bangka heading to Tingloy Port, tirik na ang araw teh (10AM) and travel time via boat took us 45min- 1hour , amounting 80PHP (sana di pa mataas as of writing). When we arrived at Tingloy Port, we need to ride a tricycle papuntang pinag stayhan namin.

Tingloy Port na po kami.

I was disappointed that sa layo at hirap ng pinag daanan bago makarating  sa place, the beach was just SO SO for me. It was beautiful indeed, but it wasn’t worth for the effort, maybe naging sikat siya for the past months dahil nga nagviral siya sa facebook, or baka talaga dahil sa mga online bloggers at backpackers na nagpupunta.  Pero for me, mag-exert man ako ng effort at time na magbeach – mag Calaguas Island nalang ako

With that being said, I left my friends earlier  on our second day palang after learning that Puerto Galera is just a boat ride away from Masasa Beach, eh may boat naman available the next morning na aalis ng 6AM. I noticed my friends’ faces na nalungkot kasi iniwan ko sila, pero baka dahil sa frustration ko sa place , I also need m “Me Time” and Puerto Galera is just a foggy-blurred away from our place kaya na rin ako hindi na a nag stay pa wherein two days ang naka book supposedly sa amin sa Masasa Beach.

The owner of the house we rented, together with my friends – hinatid din naman nila ako sa boat. Pero in just short span of time na nakasama at inuman ko sila – I must say na quality time din naman.

Dumating ako sa Galera na mag-isa, nag book ng room 800PHP for 24 hours, nagpamasahe, nag-inum and the rest were history. HAHA.  And my friends na naiwan, nakita ko nalang sa FB nag punta sila sa ibang location, I just learned na bukod beach , may mga iba pa palang magagang lugar na pwede puntahan,nagpadaig lang ako sa “first impression”.  Well, if ask niyo ako if babalik ako at sasadyain talaga, maybe  hindi na muna. But who knows.. but not for now.

Salamat Guys sa pagsubaybay, Im pretty sure nag –iba ang timpla ng writing style ko. TAGLISH, kasi diko na kayang magpanggap na English pa more. Well, this new style nag pagsusulat ko, seems light... and seems magaan sya basahin. Para lang kinakausap ko kayo, and this is what I want to do moving forward. Ayaw ko na magpanggap, mahirap nagcheck ng grammar. Hahaha.

Rai , a Transpinay acquired her property year 2018. She is a fun –loving on maintaining a massive circle of friend. And so, she came up of sacrificing her queen size bed and brought a couch for the visitors. In addition, she opted a couch that can be converted into bed for her comfort after work. She also bought an additional two foldable chairs so that she can hide it once not being used.  And she kept the other two for her dining table – free when the unit was turned over.

Rai loves yellow-green and so most of her things are yellow green. She also considers of not spending too much in making her unit visually pleasant.

Pumupunta ako ng Divisioria , kasi mahal sa mall “ she said.

Pag may nakita kayong nakasale or buy 1 take 1, grab niyo na

Undeniably, her own way on how to maximize a small space is truly amazing. She was able to design a dwelling that is visitor friendly without sacrificing her comfort during her own “ME TIME”.

Conquering The World’s Highest Canyon Swing, THE PLUNGE of Danao, Bohol.


I’ve been saying this quote “live life to the fullest co’z life is worth celebrating for”. I always kept in mind that I have to embody such statement in my every day way of living. Do not settle in a boring situation because we can only live once and so; we have to make the most out of it. I always make sure that I have to experience exciting things that I’ve never done before.

Looking back these past 30 years of my existence, I think this one of the most extreme adventures that I have experienced – to conquer the world’s highest canyon swing.  May 26, 2018 together with William Pombo ( a good friend of mine) and my cousins from Bohol – Rosemarie “Inday”Bastasa and Vitaliano “Bajun” Bastasa Jr. Witnessed how I shouted when I was released and got swing towards –somewhat, I called it infinity. 

I don’t have any phobia of height at all but the experience was mind blowing wherein it will leave a scar of happiness and fulfilment in my whole being.  Undeniably, it was one of the highlights in my life. This story took place at Municipality of Danao, Province of Bohol which we really spent time and effort just to get there. It was then worthy to give aim this (in) famous dignifying “THE PLUNGE” for the amount of PHP700. Indeed, I was not paying for “the Plunge” itself but I paid for the so called “EXPERIENCE” and it is priceless for me.

“The Plunge” is just one of the main activities offered by E.A.T (Extreme Adventure Tour)  Danao. EatDanao is Bohol’s ecotourism park where tourist can go river trekking, rappelling, rock climbing, caving and even kayaking through the parks incredible and picturesque landscape.  A canyon swing adventure attraction named “The Plunge” is mounted over a 200 meter high and 300 meter wide defile. The swing itself calls for you to free fall for about 70 meters before being launched into a pendulum swing, 100 meters wide back and forth – which really made me dizzy and threw up afterwards.

Watch My Vlog:

Truly, I will never ever forget this event in my life. The feeling - seemingly it was the end of the world, those shouts that echoed within the location, those laughter from the people watching me while I was swinging, those were memories that will leave a mark in my heart. And I want you guys to experience that.

Promise! I’ll bet my life if you will not enjoy it.  Love Love Love..

Small Youtubers in the Philippines React on Additional Changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).


On January 16, 2018, Youtube released a pronouncement that there will be a new qualification of becoming part of Youtube Partner Program (YPP).  The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) lets creators monetize their content on YouTube. Creators can earn money from advertisements served on their videos and from YouTube Red subscribers watching their content. On Youtube Creator Blog, it has been mentioned that for you to qualify the YPP, a channel must have at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time in the past 12 months.

Originally, this “qualification approach” of Youtube was initially started in second quarter of 2017 wherein a channel must have 10,000 lifetime views to get monetized, but later on changed into this recent threshold.  Upon posting the said news, it earned a massive and shocking reaction especially to those thriving small channels.

In the Philippines, the most active group of content creators is Youtube Vloggers Ph wherein most of the members are small youtubers; and got affected negatively to this major change. Some took it as a challenge but some became de-motivated as they really worked hard to achieve the first qualification – 10k lifetime views, yet YT changed the threshold it right away.

Truly, becoming an online creator now is not easy anymore in comparison to the previous years passed by. I am fortunate that I signed up Youtube Partner Program earlier and I was able to monetize my videos without those thresholds. However, this qualification is applicable also to all existing partner – that when I didn’t reach the qualification, my partnership might forfeited. Aside from qualifications, the fast growth of number of small youtubers became a challenge to each individual as Youtube community turned into a jungle of creative people, spammers, bad actors and etcetera.

Watch this video as I am going to tackle this issue in my “10th POWER Series– Episode 4”.

What are your takeaways on this new change? 

Leave your comments below and I’ll reply it as soon as possible.

 I’ve been using Gay Social Dating sites for almost 15 years now as I started to use it when I was 17.Recently; Gay dating became easier as various apps became available right in your phone.  I must admit that part of growing; I was once an active user of such online dating feature. 

 I can still remember how I was willing to meet random guys that I’ve talked online. I allowed them to enter my life as I was under the impression that online dating is a way for me to find my better half. At first, it failed and I tried, and failed and tried again. The history kept repeating and unconsciously I was addicted to it.

Until ... at my age of 30, I’m becoming more mature and got a different way of seeing things. I decided to delete these apps in my phone wherein one time – it poisoned my youngness. For the span of 15 years of using -both gay dating sites and apps, meeting random guys and sleeping with them; I never ever got any benefits aside from the satisfaction of my carnal needs.  Indeed, It didn’t boost me as Jonathan Orbuda at all.

But I was still thankful because, involving myself to such apps made me experience on how to become more socially incline to diverse people that I’ve met. I was able to experience, masasabi kong hindi rin ako naging ignorante. But, I’m done with it.

Watch the video below as I’ll delete all my Gay Dating Apps in my phone. I will also tell you my top 10 reasons why I decided to stop this kind of activity.

To all young ones, please share this video because I made this – just for you. I’m happy that I was able to make this stage. And now masasabi, graduate na ako. Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship. And by using Dating Apps is not advisable because it lessen the meaning of DATING.
