Cape Bojeador Lighthouse of Burgos

Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse, is a cultural heritage structure in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, that was established during the Spanish Colonial period in the Philippines. It was first lit on March 30, 1892, and is set high on Vigia de Nagpartian Hill overlooking the scenic Cape Bojeador where early galleons used to sail by. After over 100 years, it still functions as a welcoming beacon to the international ships that enter the Philippine Archipelago from the north and guide them safely away from the rocky coast of the town.

Photoshoot with pro photographer KenjiroX

Recently, I was contacted by Paul “KenjiroX” Soliman of http://kenjirox.tumblr.com/ saying he wanted to do a photoshoot with me in Batangas. It could be because he saw how ugly the pictures I took were (just kidding). I know myself that I just use a point and shoot (and shoot hurriedly) whenever I do travel, so I really appreciate this opportunity.

Check out his beautiful work here.

I’d have to say that I was definitely impressed with the result.

Thanks again!

Motorsiklo Xklusibo – Atin ito.

Most of the time, whenever we hear stories or news about motorcycles in our local media, it would almost be a certainty that the topic would be negative – criminals in motorcycles (more popularly known, and incorrectly tagged as “riding in tandem”), motorcycle accidents, rider violations, and the like.

Motorsiklo Xklusibo or MX will surely be a breath of fresh air.

Where to eat in Laoag: Johnny Moon Cafe

Photobucket

I recently did my Extreme Northern Luzon Loop and as always, part of my trip would be a gastronomic tour. I stayed in Laoag City (and toured the nearby towns) for 3 days and experienced a lot of food. While doing my day tour photowalk, I came upon this nice, steady spot located right smack at the middle of the city. It was actually one of the recommendations when I was looking for one as I checked out FourSquare. And so, one of the places that gave me an unforgettable experience would be Johnny Moon Cafe.
