The Wrangler Road Trip Notes

SIQUIJOR is one of the places in the Philippines that only a few people would dare to visit way back. Blame it on the media hype about the Balete tree and horror flicks with it as the prime location, it somewhat drove our kababayans away from this beautiful island.


Life is like a Wrangler Road Trip

I have to admit that I am one of those who would think twice to visit Siquijor, but I am truly curious about it. I’m lucky to have met Dylan, a travel blogger who was born and raised in Siquijor. I read some of his blog entries related to Siquijor and he narrated some stories about the beauty of his hometown when we met last December in Moalboal.

This is my December – Excited and Thankful

Instead of buying new clothes for the winter season, I shopped for Filipino goodies like Lucky Me Pansit Canton, Boy Bawang, Likas Papaya Soap, Cebu Dried Mangoes, Goldilocks Polvoron and so on.

What’s Up, Body Clock?

It’s 6:45AM and majority starts to wake up and prepare for school or work. Me? Well.. I am about to sleep.

I am not working in a call center that requires me to work on graveyard shifts. I also don’t have any clients now from the US or UK to talk or chat with. For the past few hours, i’ve been reading blogs and trying to write on another publishing site. Did I have a productive day… errrr night?


Yesterday, i slept at 9:30AM and woke up for lunch. Went back to bed afterwards and woke up at 6:30pm. I know most would say ‘lucky you!’ or ‘i envy your life!’

But hey, don’t.
