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.

One ofthe places that I have beenwa ting to go to ever since is the Maitum Anthropomorphic Jars Museum located at the Municipal Hall of the town of Maitum in the Province of Sarangani Philippines.
What’s so special about this place?
It was in the 90′s when several secondary burial jars were discovered in Piñol Cave. But these jars are like no other: they hace very intricate human-like designs that cannot be found elsewhere.

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.
Better late than never. Last December 1st I flew from Bacolod to Ozamiz with a 4-hour stopover at Mactan Cebu International Airport.
It was the first day of the last month of the year, but I was heading once again to Tangub City in Misamis Occidental to judge the annual Christmas Symbols Festival. The City has always been known as the Christmas Capital of Mindanao. And they pretty much know how to celebrate the Yuletide season with all the dazzling lights and colors.
