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.
Day Two of my Lingayen escapade. Sort of. I woke up a little bit late. By around 11AM, I walked towards the Pangasinan Provincial Capitol to snap some photos and return to the beach area.
Pangasinan Provincial Capitola
As always I am mesmerized at the grandeur of the capitol. Very elegant. I just can’t take my eyes off the building! Later I went inside to check out its interior where photos of the former governors as well as plaques trophies and recognition awarded to the Province were on display.
