Every time I travel, I always follow a very simple guiding principle: eat what the locals eat, do what the locals do. This way I get to experience a place in a more authentic way.
Just like when I was in General Santos City for example, the best place to get a bowl piping hot sinigang na tuna is right at the city’s public market. And I would always prefer pedicab, tricycle or habal habal over taxi or vans.
Do you know that there’s actually a website now that lists down various activities offered by the locals to travelers? Sounds interesting, right?
A few months ago, I was invited by Sarangani First Lady Michelle Lopez-Solon to come to tour around the province and experience the Sarangani Bay Fest.
Last May 15, early in the morning, I boarded the Cebu Pacific flight bound for General Santos City, the gateway to the South Central Mindanao region. There I was met by Michelle together with other bloggers who will also be joining the tour.
Just recently I was invited by Lenovo at an exclusive Lenovo Yoga Tablet 18 hour challenge. There were only three of us in the challenge: Jonel Uy of LetsgoSago.net, Ferds Decena of Ironwulf.net and me.
Every year, the Cultural Center of the Philippines holds an open house for the public in a whole-day event called the Pasinaya.

But this year, I have finally made an effort to come to the CCP mainly to watch the performances of my two favorite dance companies: The Bayanihan Dance Company and the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group.
