How to Go to Tiendesitas, Pasig City and What To Expect There?

by

Tiendesitas sits on a 30,000 square meter area within Frontera Verde, which houses 12 Maranao architecture-inspired pavilions called "villages." Indigenous materials used in creative ways adorn these villages using chemically-treated cogon grass for roof, old kalesa wheels into chandelier frames to light the restrooms, and duyans (hammock) scattered around to allow shortbreaks amidst frenzied shopping activities. The result is a stylized and unique Filipino architecture. The design of the complex also gives attention to the needs of the disabled and the elderly.

Sizzling Tokwa, perfect as Pultutan.

At night, shoppers can be treated to acoustic and live band performances. There is also an area dedicated to special shows, exhibits, and unique Filipino presentations. Kids and adults can also enjoy riding the kalesa, which goes around Tiendesitas.

How To Play Traditional and Indigenous Games in the Philippines? (Laro ng Lahi)

by
In this video, I'll be featuring some of Filipino Games that I used to play when I was young.


Advertisement by Google:
1. Doktor Kwak Kwak please help us! -

Doktor Kwak Kwak is a game that children fond of. You can play it in school, street and fields. This game is composed of 5 or more players. Actually playing this game with more players will be more challenging. The more the challenging the game, it will be more fun. It needs concentration, speed and strength to play this game.

The mechanics of the game is simple. First, to know who will be DoKtor Kwak Kwak, you can play elimination by “jack en poy” or “bato bato pik” and the looser will be Doktor Kwak Kwak. Next, He will turn back so that other players formed a circle and start to tangled or twisted their body and positions in a way of entering under the hands or passing above the hands of co-players while sitting down and keep their hands holding. Then, after they already finished the twisting part, they will call Doktor Kwak Kwak by saying “Doktor Kwak Kwak please help us”. Lastly, he will come and solve or arrange the twisting part. After he arranged it, he will cut by his hand the circle and other players will run. The player who will be caught be the next Doktor Kwak Kwak.

This game can offer us a number of psychological benefits in addition to physical benefits. It can also help us to communicate effectively like in the twisting part of the game. This kind of game is cheaper than playing online games. It can enhance also our self confidence and develop our mental ability. It can also allow ourselves to have quality time in our friends or capable family member in playing this game together.

2. BAGSAK TSINELAS GAME or STARFINISH - Honestly, this game is new to me - you can watch the mechanic in the vlog of Kulas #BecomingFilipino - https://youtu.be/cKf-gX5iGC0

3. LUKSONG BAKA

Loosely translated in English, as “Jump over the Cow.”, is a traditional Filipino game that originated from Bulacan, it involves a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 10 players. It involves the players jumping over the person called the "Baka", and the main goal of the players is to successfully jump over the "Baka" without touching or falling over him/her.

How to play luksong baka?

a). At the start of the game there should be one player that should be called "Taya" (It') or in this game the "Bakang lala" (Cow).

b). The players should avoid contact or falling over the "Baka" player while jumping over.

c). The "Baka" player should start with a bend-down kneeling position (A "Baka" player bends over with his hands placed on his knees).

d). All players are to jump over the "Baka" until all the players have jumped. Once the 1st set of jumping over the "Baka" is done, the "Baka" player's position will slowly rise-up after jumping over the "Baka" player.

e). Only the hands of the jumper may touch the back of the person who is bent over. If a player fails to avoid contact or fall over the "Baka", he/she will replace the "Baka" player with a bend-down kneeling position , and the game continues until the all players decides to end the game.

3. HABULANG BULAG

4. JAK EN POY

Rock-paper-scissors (or rock, paper, scissors) is a zero-sum hand game usually played between two people, in which each player simultaneously forms one of three shapes with an outstretched hand. These shapes are "rock" (a simple fist), "paper" (a flat hand), and "scissors" (a fist with the index and middle fingers together, forming a V). The game has only two possible outcomes other than a tie: a player who decides to play rock will beat another player who has chosen scissors ("rock crushes scissors") but will lose to one who has played paper ("paper covers rock"); a play of paper will lose to a play of scissors ("scissors cut paper"). If both players choose the same shape, the game is tied and is usually immediately replayed to break the tie. Other names for the game in the English-speaking world include roshambo and other orderings of the three items, sometimes with "rock" being called "stone"

5.  SIATO .

Siato - a popular Filipino game between two or more players. Two sticks are used to play this game. One is about two feet long, and the other one about half a foot long. A small hole in the ground is made where the smaller stick will be placed with one end at the bottom and the other end sticking out. The player will hit the smaller stick with the longer one so that the smaller stick flies to the air. At mid-air, the player then hits again the smaller stick with the longer one. This is repeated three times. Whoever hits it to the farthest distance wins the game. As punishment, the loser will be forced to shout the word "siato" without interruption while running back to the original starting place.

How To Go To Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary ,Corella, Bohol To Witness The Smallest Monkey in the World?

by


Advertisement by Google:
With the mission of  establish a forest reserve in the island of Bohol which shall serve as the sanctuary of the Philippine tarsier; to protect and manage the tarsier sanctuary through the active participation of local communities; to establish and preserve a wildlife research laboratory for the study of the ecology and biology of the Philippine tarsier; to establish and uphold visitor facilities for ecotourism and disseminate information material about the Philippine tarsier with emphasis on the species' protection and conservation , The Philippine Tarsier Foundation, Incorporated (PTFI) was established  in 1996.

The said non profit, Non-stock Corporation is based in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines, but the sanctuary itself is located in the Municipality of Corella. It is being supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) eve if it is run by a private sector.  You can visit the 8.4-hectare (20.7-acre) sanctuary or forest reservation in Corella but the viewing area that can be accessible to all tourists is just one hectare wherein you have to pay for an entrance fee of PHP60 (as of May 2018).

Once you visit, you can expect a reception and souvenir counter, an exhibit area, an audio-visual room, restrooms, and administration offices. Outside is a lounge deck, and nearby a parking lot and you can also see few signages that give you some trivia about tarsier e.g. “Tarsier can only have one baby per year”,  “Tarsier cannot survive in a cage”, and “Tarsier s commit suicide once get stressed due to noise pollution”.



Moving inside the “viewing 10 hectare forest”, you will experience such “green feeling” which visually relaxing seeing those trees and shrubs. The visitor’s guide will then approach you and brings you to where the tarsiers can be viewed. They‘re hiding on the branches of the woody grasses which is unfortunately – it is really difficult to obtain a perfect shot for Instagram. It was actually my first time to visit the place but I already touched and took a picture with a living tarsier way back 2013 in Sagbayan Peak (unfortunately as of May 2018 it is no longer available).


Unlike in Sagbayan Peak back then, tarsiers were confined in a huge cage that gave the feeling of the animals living in the wild forest. But in Corella, the tarsiers are living freely in their natural habitat.



How to go to Corella, Bohol?

Going there is so easy, though I went there via private car but nothing to worry about, it is very accessible.

Via Public Transport:

From Seaport or Airport get into a tricycle and tell driver to take you to Sikatuna Jeepney Terminal (This is right infront of Island City Mall). Fare is P100.00 per tricycle.

From Sikatuna Jeepney Terminal, get into a Jeepney bound to Sikatuna via Corella. (Just anybody there which jeepney passes by Philippine Tarsier Foundation. )This jeepney drops you off to Philippine Tarsier Foundation. Fare is P17.00. Tell the driver of the jeepney that you are headed to Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella.

Upon arrival there is a huge signage and rough road, take it and walk for 300 meters to the Research Building where you will pay P60.00 entrance fee and have a guide to show you around the sanctuary and where to see the tarsiers.

Going Back, just take a jeepney headed to Tagbilaran. And yes it is safe to hitch hike here. Fare is P15.00 for jeepney.

Via Tricycle:

From Airport or seaport or anywhere in Tagbilaran City, take a tricycle and ask driver to take you to Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella One way is P150 per tricycle, round trip is P500 when driver waits for you.
Via Car:

Make sure to contact a trusted travel agency. Tell them to take you to Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella. Fare is P500 per car and P1,000 round trip from Tagbilaran City.

Via Habal Habal

You can look for a Habal Habal in Dao Terminal; fare is within PHP400-500

Guevara, Mandaluyong, 1550.

Anytime Fitness aims to be the average joe franchise gym where they offer modern facilities for the everyday person; not to over the top nor cheap and industrial. Well, with the amount of PHP2000 per month as a pre-selling price, with free membership and PHP 2500 for the key Fob; I must say that it is quite expensive to those who are living in a bare minimum as to compare sa mga bakal gym na 500-800Php ang monthly.  Inline to another fitness club like Gold’s Gym and Fitness First – medyo affordable naman ang Anytime Fitness.



Actually, I am still a Gold’s gym member until March 2019 but I opted to go to Anytime Fitness because of its 24/7 operation which is in line to my lifestyle na on the go kahit anong oras.  In addition to that, the Gym the I am currently with – is located in Taguig and I really have to allocate time before I go to work  para magpawis  but good thing on newly opened purple establishment , it is just one minute away from my place.



The official opening of the said branch is August 1, 2018 wherein I can now start working out in any time of my convenient time.  Wala ako masyado na expect sa gym nato as sauna is not available – lahat fitness lang .



Ang mahal magpaganda ng katawan BESH!” , yet the important is I can still continue my active lifestyle, mostly  “I am no longer young” , mas mahal ang magkasakit kaysa sa 2k per month na mag-e enjoy din naman ako magpapawis. I love working out to begin with.



Let see Kung maganda ba ang pamamahala and let us also see if ma maintain ba nila ang cleanliness.

See yah there!

Baclayon Church – How It Looks Like in Current Days, After The 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake?

by


That was Year 2010 when I last visited this oldest church in the Philippines - Baclayon Church – after I graduated in my Bachelor Degree. After three years, 2013 when a 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake hits the province and this well-build infrastructure was damaged. It was totally devastating because the said church is part of the Bohol’s tourist spot, historically; it also plays a huge role in narrating how Boholanos value their spiritual life and beliefs of Devine Power.

Advertisement by Google:
Until 2018, I got a chance to revisit this church on May 26. I went back to my home-province Bohol with my friend William Pombo. Bohol travel is incomplete without visiting this church and so, after we indulged the white beaches of Pangalo Island, we drove towards the town of Baclayon. We arrived at 8:30AM wherein there were lots of tourists inside and outside the
church.

Staring the whole church from the viewpoint outside, I didn’t notice any marks from the catastrophic 7.2 magnitude earthquake after five years. It was totally restored especially the bell tower, however the green algae and the plants that grew on the walls of the church which added the characteristic of the said Church was no longer there.     Inside, there was no difference from what I saw when I first visited the church; the design is still surreal from other churches. I can still distinguish that it is really a BACLAYON CHURCH – the church that brought BOHOL into the skyscraper of Tourism Industry.



Truly, this is a proof that Boholanos has been recovered from the destruction of the said earthquake.

How to Store Too Many Groceries in a 13 SQM Small Condo Unit?

by

Advertisement by Google:

I already showed you guys on how to design your small apartment to accommodate numerous visitors in one setting in my previous blog post. Today, a certified foodie named Migs Bermido will share his own approach on how he maximized his 13 sqm condo unit especially he is a self-confessed Food Hoarder.

Migs loves inviting his neighbour inside his tiny space and cook for them. Indeed, he is fascinated of letting his friends, visitors and neighbour consumed his food supplies.

Congressman nga ang tawag nila sa akin (They even tagged me as a politician) “he jokingly said.

 Undeniably, his cabinetries are full of food supplies, his refrigerator is jam-packed of drinks, his fridge is occupied of too many processed foods and meats, above his cabinetries - you can find a lot of cereals , wines and on the floor, he put a plate rack wherein most of the space is full goodies.

“Isn’t it obvious with my body?” he added.

Watch the Video Below:
Indeed, he has planned to install more cabinets in the future for more food storage. This guy is truly amazing on how he was able to maximize his small condo unit without sacrificing his love of foods. He even managed to cook foods inside his room using an 8 in 1 multi-cooker.


Moreover, hoarding too many foods inside in small apartment is everyone’s challenge mostly -living in the urban zone. We opted to buy at the fast food restaurant or even frequently bought ready-to eat foods in Carenderia and we tend to forget  – to live a homey feeling – cooking foods, dining after and washing dishes.  And with Migs, he still maintains the lifestyle of living in a big house yet he is inside a 13 square meter studio apartment.

Where To Stay In Panglao, Bohol ? - Hotel And Resort That Are Affordable and Accessible.

by

After a long travel via air from Manila which took us (together with William Pombo) almost one hour. And, from Tagbilaran to Panglao Island via land (jeepney) which took us 30 mins. We finally arrived at Dumaloan Beach Resort. (Watch How We Travel).


WATCH THIS #VLOG and Don't forget to subscribe.

Dumaloan Beach Resort has two properties; one for private and the other one is open for public. We opted to book our room at the public resort as it has quite affordable room rate.  Perfectly located in Panglao Island, the island of Bohol known to its fine white sand beaches. It is a family-oriented resort that is popular for recreation and vacation. Total relaxation is exactly what this resort wants you to have.

It is the one place that has things any traveler desires most — white sandy beach, great accommodations, quality service, fun outdoor activities and hospitable people. At Dumaluan Beach Resort you can truly loosen up and unite with your loved ones and friends, while perfectly enjoying a vacation away from your busy lifestyle.


Public Resort – It has open nipa hut cottages, table, closed private nipa hut, and air-conditioned rooms.  Our air-conditioned room rate was quite expensive in comparison kapag hindi summer. At dahil summer ang MAY, in proportion to the demand, the prices increases.  There is a restaurant but you have to reserve foods for an overnight inuman because the said resto isn’t open 24 hours.

Private Resort – At the private property , you can find a bar where-in an acoustic live band performs every night with simultaneously inuman ng mga guest. The vicinity is quite well-developed in comparison sa Public. Good thing, nakakapasok naman ang customer from public towards sa private kapag gusto mo mag-inum – the entry point in front of the beach.




BOHOL BEACH CLUB also known as BBC has opened its doors once again with major changes including new rooms, new suites and modern facilities to cater to the most discerning travelers. The resort is well laid out so that space is maximized giving all guests’ the feel of freedom, privacy and solitude.



From the rooms, to the restaurants, the activities and facilities, all aspects of the resort have been enhanced with the satisfaction of our guests’ in mind. Aside from this, BBC continues to boast of having the best beach in the island.

RELATED: THE SPECTACULAR PANGLAO ISLAND IN BOHOL.



A large private beach with powdery white sand, pristine waters and most importantly, all the breathing space that guests’ need in order to enjoy, without the maddening crowd and unwanted distractions. Food choices are also well thought of as the new kitchen team offers a wide variety of traditional Filipino fare as well as international cuisine that will surely satisfy the gastronomical desires of all guests. Add to this the impeccable service of the BBC Team; genuine service that comes from the heart! This is what makes for a perfect vacation in Bohol.



Speaking of  “PRIVATE” – sad part if you’re guest from Dumaloan, there is no way for you to enter this property, however you can walk at the shortline adjacent to it but no can do if you’re planning to go there from the beach. Security guards are very strict even taking pictures is no longer allowed today, pero last time na pumunta ako dati , pwede. In fact naka pag short pa ako ng video dati – (WATCH HERE). Pero today, sobrang higpit. , you can still swim at the beach adjacent to it pero bawal na mag-ingay. Pinagalitan nga si William dahil nagpatudtug siya ng speaker na dala naming. Bawal daw !




Alona Beach is a small, quiet, tropical paradise located on Panglao Island, right at the southwestern tip of Bohol in the Philippines. It is famous for it's beautiful white sand beach and great scuba diving, butit's also a great place to just sit back and relax.



The beach at Alona is a beautiful 1.5 kilometer stretch of white sand bordered on both ends by two rock walls. You can walk from one end to the other in 10-15 minutes. It's a great walk! You will pass by all sorts of hotels and restaurants where you can stop in for a cold beer or soda and enjoy it while sitting right next to the ocean



Good thing, my cousin brought his friends na may motor, kaya naman nakapunta kami. Madaling araw na, that was 1 am na kami nag punta at ang daming tao dun, it’s totally opposite of BBC. Alona vicinity is full of bar and restaurant occupied by numerous white people “ang daming afam!” .

Variety of bar – EDM, Reggae, acoustic and etcetera.

Do You Know What I Did Last Summer? - Puerto Galera All Over Again.

by

Advertisement by Google:
“This will be my graduation rite” I said it to myself.

In fact, I kept saying that statement to myself na tama na, I’m no longer young pa- para maging carefree and I need to step up na at maging mature.  Maybe, one of the action plans of growing up is not get crazy sa Puerto Galera every holy weeks. Seemingly, partying at the beach of Puerto Galera is so young and wild; and for me grow - is to avoid it at all.

But last summer Holy Week 2018, my friends and I , planned to go there kasi nga first time nila.  Who am I to decline my friends who were very curious towards the happening s of the said beach? Every time I narrated my story to them, I can see on their faces how the seed of curiosity drastically growing into a tree of eagerness to experience the same story that I’ve uttered.

“Nako friend, you have to try  PUERTO GALERA during Holy Week to complete your Gay Life”,  I jokingly said to M.A. Buendia and William Pombo , who are both Puerto GAY-lera virgin. (I was once a Puerto Galera Virgin .. READ MORE)


“Sige Friend, let us go no matter what fortuitous events might occur” , POMBO and MA.

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
Truly,  I am happy to let my two friends experience what I’ve experienced when I first visited such vibrant place.



“Balik tayo dito , ang saya and LGBT people here are respected by the locals” said Buendia.
“Oo nga,  parang walang paki ang mga straight at di ka nila babastosin” said Pombo.



I just smiled after hearing those comments from them because that was also my feedback during my “first time”. And until now, I kept visiting Puerto Galera during my random weekends whenever  I need to unwind alone. Madaming nagsasabi na overrated na ang White Beach , Puerto Galera pero I still patronize the place wherein as a gay guy , you felt home and respected.  Madaming nagsasabi na kaya bumabalik ang mga bakla due to easy access to hook ups but I should say – it is more than that. The feeling of being recognized and accepted are the reasons why gay guys keep visiting this place.






When Puerto Galera won’t  show any homophobia – LGBTQIA will still go back to the place. A place where the rainbow flag is proudly displayed by the locals through their acceptance.
