It’s not really bad to try out something new from time time. Especially if we get to try death-defying activities. Wait. Not really death defying. I was just exaggerating on that part. But trying out adrenaline pumping activities once in a while is a perfect way to kill the monster called “Monotony” and that monster sometimes breeds offsprings called “boredom”
Haha enough with the words.
And to kill those monsters living deep inside of me, off we went to the town of Maitum in Sarangani province Philippines to test our courage, through the white water tubing.

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.
Last November I was invited to a 4d/3n staycation at Movenpick Resort Hotel in Mactan Cebu. The Reosrt is the only 5-star facility in Mactan Island Cebu. It is located at Punta Engano Lapu-lapu City, just a few meters away from the famed Mactan Shrine.
Movenpick is an international brand of Resort Hotel based in Switzerland. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the friendly staff and checked in to my room.
It’s the last day of our tour in Antique and I am pretty much excited to try new stuff while here! We we up a little early again, for our coffee, and breakfast of corned beef and sunny side up. It is our last day in Antique and we made sure to save the best for last!
After breakfast, we went to the Tribal Adventures facility to try the whitewater kayak experience. I have tried the whitewater radfting in Davao before So more or less I have an idea of what to expect.
And before we go out in the river, we had our safety briefing first. Tribal Adventures has been operating the whitewater kayak in Tibiao for quite some time now, but it is only recently that it came into spotlight when Katahum Tours started to market this activity as part of their tour product.
