Beautiful Southern Cebu

Southern Cebu is simply beautiful.

I passed by this side of the island on my way to doing my Negros tour wherein I toured both Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental.

Although Cebu City is still the most popular destination for Cebu tourists, one should not miss out the beautiful southern section of Cebu Province. Indeed, this is a testament to the sheer beauty of our country – even those places that do not receive as much fanfare as the more popular ones have a great potential of becoming an attraction, in case they aren’t yet. From Sibonga all the way to Santander, let me share with you some of the beautiful and interesting sights I saw.

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 or MX will surely be a breath of fresh air.
