Tarsier - One of the Smallest Monkeys in the World

Tarsiers – One of the Smallest Monkeys in the World

There was a time in my life when my bullies called me a Tarsier, due to the enormous size of my eyes. I used to be a bit skinny, so, imagine how noticeable my eyes were, compare to the other parts of my figure. I ignored my bullies. They had no idea that tarsiers are […]

The Mural That Pricks Your Conscience

This is the mural that pricks your conscience. It makes you feel guilty—and contemplate on how often you practise honesty in your daily life.

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 […]

Davao Butterfly Garden

Davao Butterfly Garden

Somebody invited me this week to go to Davao City for two days and a night. I’m so glad I went because Davao City is NOT the same chaotic city I’ve seen in August 2002. Now, Davao City is a clean, organized city and away from the dangerous people who used to be sulking in […]
