This is a Tiny White Beach Island in Saudi Arabia

La Jolla Beach

I was walking down the La Jolla Beach when I spotted this woman doing her yoga in the sand, with only the sound of the waves can be heard. It was a peaceful setting that I decided to sit down on the grasses in my own yoga position. But, of course, I took these photos […]

The Brave, the Bold, the Beautiful and the Weird at Venice Beach

Venice Beach is everything. There’s the bold, the strong, the beautiful, the weird, the hip and the artist. It is a place that shows all we think of America—without the republicans! The Bold.

Pearl Farm Beach Resort in Davao City, Samal Island, Philippines.

Pearl Farm Beach Resort

Don’t be misguided by its name: Pearl Farm Beach Resort in Davao City.  To my knowledge, the resort is not a place where you can buy lots of pearls nor is a beach with a pearl farm. Personally I had never seen a pearl farm in the island—only a shop selling pearls which I never dared […]

Boracay Island Beach in the Philippines is a paradise.

Boracay Island Beach is a Paradise

Boracay Island Beach is overrated. But, its overratedness is something you’d always love despite. It’s my first time in this island paradise and the moment my bare feet stepped on the white, talcum-powdered sand, it felt like I was finally home—the kind of home where you should be when the Northern Hemisphere is cold, wet, […]
