Siquijor Diaries Day 1 – Throwing Caution To The Wind

The last time I went to Siquijor was 3 years ago, May 2015. When the chance to visit the island again presented itself, I had ambivalent feelings. So many memories were created there, mostly happy. After I broke up with my boyfriend of 7 years, the place only evoked pain, and I swore I’ll never set foot on that island again.

New Year 2018

A very Happy New Year!!! Thank God the holidays are over! I was thinking of writing a New Year’s resolution (again!), and hopefully, sticking to it. This is rather late, but like they say, better late than never! Blog more! A no brainer! I obviously need better time management. Be more tolerant of idiots, and hoping this doesn’t encourage them to take up more of my time. Extend my patience beyond kids and animals. Travel more, domestic and international! Learn
