March is not only my birthday month, it seems to be my lucky month too. I'm happy to share that two of my articles were published in the March 2018 issue of TravelPlus Magazine.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you article 1 of 2, the Art in the North. It's an article that takes a new perspective about the northern provinces of the Philippines. It also tells you how these northern provinces can help you nurture the hidden artist in you.



Article 2 of 2, is all about my once in a lifetime interview with "The Master" Sonny Yabao titled Through the Lens. Here, he talks about his humble beginnings, his style, and what lies ahead. 

These articles might inspire you to become artists someday. Please do grab your copies of the March 2018 issue of TravelPlus Magazine in your nearest bookstores. 

Thanks a lot, guys!

Ilocos Sur - Ilocos Norte Road Trip 2017

After 7 long years, my wife and I finally got a chance to revisit Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte last December 2017. What makes this trip special for me is that for this road trip, we already have a daughter along with us. Aside from that, this road trip is also my first with my wife's family. It was safe to say that it was a special yearender trip for me.

Here's how our Ilocos Sur-Ilocos Norte Road Trip 2017 turned out:

December 25 (Day 1)

Our adventure started in the house of my brother-in-law in Cavite. Our two car convoy left at around 7AM. The trip was quite fast thanks to the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway or TPLEX.

After lunch we drove straight to Ilocos Sur and reached the Ilocos Sur Arch a few hours later. As expected, we had our compulsory group photo with it as our back drop. We also had some other compulsory group photos at the following places:

Located at Anonang Mayor corner Don Lorenzo Quirubin in the town of Caoayan, Ilocos Sur, Heritage Resort of Caoayanis a five-hectare family resort which is perfectly located a few kilometers away from the historical city of Vigan.
Heritage Resort of Caoayan DetailsHeritage Resort of Caoayan offers visitors budget-friendly accommodations and its geographical closeness to Vigan City. Aside from that, visitors with time to spare can also take a dip in its pools or just relax in its farm-like atmosphere. What I like about the resort is its large rooms. Apart from being wallet-friendly, it could also fit a family of 10 (given that four of them are children). Speaking of large space, the resort also has a large parking space suited for those family road trip convoys. In connection to that, it is also good to know that the resort also has a large pavilion that can be used for weddings, debuts, or birthdays. 






However, there are also several things visitors might not like about the resort (which…
