Summer Getaway at Pinamuntugan Island

Pinamuntugan Island has very light sand, though it's not white. But the water is bluish-green. When we were swimming the current was quite strong in some parts that we were being tossed in the water like dolls.

The Breathtaking Aguirangan Island

It took my breath away! Its 1.5-hectare formation with white beach and crystal clear waters was so beautiful!

Have you ever seen a jellyfish up close? I have. I think it's one of the most beautiful creatures of the sea.

Half-Life

If you've heard the song "Half-Life" you'll know what i'm talking about. This condition not only pertains to love but to life in it's totality. Living a half-life is not how our life should be, it must be lived at it's fullest with all the joys and the sorrows, but sometimes it seems that there is only sorrow.

There are times and days when all we see is just an endless void of darkness and it's just so hard to see the light. And there are times tha no matter what you do, the feeling of worthlessness and just won't subside, and it is at this instance when you amost wish that you're numb so that you won't be able to feel the pain that life keeps on handing down to you. It's like living in a limbo unable to go back yet powerless of moving forward.

This especially true when all that you have ever held dear and what you have used as inspiration seems to be vanishing out of sight. What used to be possible and feasible suddenly just seems to fall into an impossibility.

Life's like that, in the blooming of youth everything seems easy and you have a clear goal and direction of where you want to go. But as we grow older circumstances change - suddenly we are besieged by endless concerns and responsibilities and because of this priorities also change. Due to these pressing issues we forget about ourselves putting first the needs of others and one day we find ourselves alone, with no purpose, no clear direction for the future.
