Cebu (Part 2): All Sorts of Water From The South

After the tiring early afternoon trek in Osmena Peak and seeing what the highest peak in Cebu can show, we are off to the first beach in Cebu, which is Moalboal.

I never really knew about Moalboal until I came here. Good thing that my friend Amor is actually from Cebu. Moalboal is located in the southwestern part of Cebu. Pristine white sands and rich underwater are the main selling points of this part of Cebu. Scuba diving, free diving and snorkeling are the activities to do in this part of Cebu.

I’ll Trade Anything For This Moment

Since Moalboal is facing on the western part, this means great news – superb sunset. Yes, the sunset here is nice, divine, and breathtaking and all the adjectives I can think of. I always make it a point to see the sunset whenever I am on a vacation.

The following day, we opted to go to one of the islands to see in the Moalboal area which is known as Pescador Island.  This part of Cebu boasts rich marine life that can match the best diving spots to all the places I’ve been to. I never tried scuba diving but by simple doing a free dive or snorkel, you can easily see the greatness needs to be seen just after you jumped off from the boat. I marked this as a must visit place to visit while in Cebu.

After a morning of sea salt, we headed straight to Kawasan Falls. Originally, I did not intend to join this part as you know, I rather be the passive type of traveler, but hey, thank goodness that I’ve given it a go. I never knew that I will have so much fun jumping from a 30-foot waterfall and hurt my butt off after. It was exhilarating yet fulfilling at the same time. We took so many pictures in Kawasan Falls but I honestly think GoPro is not my camera of choice. There are water splashes all over; pictures were out of focused so I guess this part of this vacation will hold dearly in my mind.

Reading Club: The Fault In Our Stars

I’ve always been a bookworm way before I started school. I love reading and it has become one of my favorite past if I have the luxury of time. When I was a child, I had this fascination with books and I thought that when I grow up, I’ll work around books and literature. Time passed so quickly, that I almost forgot that one dream but my relationship with books never faded. Well in fact, I love literature more and I am now more open minded on reading new stuff. Thanks to this blog, I am now able to fulfill one of my long lost dreams, to be able to write, read and share what I’ve read.

This pretty much summarizes the book 😉

Whoa, that was so dramatic and at the same time, a very long introduction. OK. This blog entry is about one of the books I recently finished which is The Fault in Our Star by highly acclaimed author John Green.  Be warned though, I might slip some spoiler so if you have never read that book (and intend to do so) please skip this entry.

The Fault in Our Star is a very touching novel about finding love and relevance in this world. It tells the story of Hazel Grace, a cancer patient and how she finds loved in the midst of her condition. The story started a cancer support group and at the opening chapter of the book, it immediately showcased all the important characters in the novel. The story revolves around Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters as they take part on learning what is their relevance on this world and how they can leave a mark on this world, with a little help from An Imperial Affliction, a book about a cancer patient.

I hate myself as this is another book turned into a movie that I missed on the theater as I was so busy the last few weeks that I need to cancel a movie date. The last time I had this regrettable moments was when The Perks of Being a Wallflower was shown in theaters some years ago. So I guess, I need to wait for the DVD release of The Fault in Our Stars.

There are a lot of memorable lines/ quotes  from that book that I need share them:

“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities” ~Peter Van Houten

For me the ending of the book is quite predictable as you are reading at the middle of the book. You know that this will happen and so on. I have that feeling at that part of the story that Hazel and Augustus visited Amsterdam. Nevertheless, I can definitely say that this is one book that you should not miss if you are tired of reading those big city novels or those widely popular dystopian novels. It is quite a refreshing break for me as I was reading Matched Series by Ally Condie, Veronica Roths Divergent before this.

My fave part

Hope youll enjoy this book as much as I do and that is why I took the time to blog about this book. I really wished that I have not missed watching it on the big screen as they said that the adapted version is well done.

Do not mistaken it for a KDrama. I love "You Who Came from the STAR" too.

I am now finishing Kiera Casss The One from The Selection Series. Maybe I’ll write an entry on that series because I am enjoying it so much.

Instagram Dump: First Half of 2014

How time really flies so fast. It seems like it was only the other day that we celebrated New Year’s Day and here we are now almost at 50% of 2014.

The first part of 2014, gave a lot of reasons to be thankful for and at the same time gave me a lot of things to ponder on. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of memories that makes this year a 2014 a good year for me – so far.

Thanks goodness for Instagram that I was able to click and share some of these moments on the SNS.

Here are some of those captured moments:
