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.

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?
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.
Three weeks ago, I joined a food tour/photowalk around Binondo hosted by Western Digital. Western Digital is the world’s leading brand for external hard drives. The aim of the tour was for us to experience the WD MyCloud. MyCloud allows us to store or access our files even if we are in a remote location.

I have already lost count on how many times I have been to Binondo to feast on dumplings and other Chinese delights but this particular tour brought us to foodie destinations that I have never been to.
