     Two weeks before our big day (if I can still remember) someone working from a known television network sent a friend request in my facebook. She sent me a message and said that they're interested to know more about my Alibijaban trip. They saw my blog and asked me if I can be their virtual guide. Not sure what it exactly means but through our conversations she said that I had to share my experiences going there, etc. Despite our busy schedule preparing for our wedding, I cant say no! Haha. It's my pleasure and privilege to tell the entire universe how beautiful this island is. Here it goes.. happy watching! :-)

Bolinao Pangasinan - Waterfalls 1, Waterfalls 2, Rock formations and Patar beach

It's my 4th time to be back in this place and it's the most special and memorable one..

     I first went to Patar beach Bolinao back in 2012  with my becky friends. Hehe. We just eat, swim, relax, laugh during our stay. All good memories... it's as if we owned the entire stretch of the shore. Less tourist was around. From then on, we promised to visit every year in between February and March but my last visit was 2014 and was not able to join them last year of 2015 because of conflict in schedules. However, I was able to visit again last December 2016 to celebrate my birthday. Thank You Dear Lord!

Mount Purro - Barangay Calawis, Antipolo City

     We climbed different mountains, we've been to many waterfalls and we went to different beaches. Even tried scuba diving, visited century old churches and historical sites. Given the chance to explore the unexplored and discover the farthest point anywhere in the Philippines, we will definitely grab it. As the days goes by, the urge in us gets higher and higher to see places we've never heard before or visit the not so common spots. We are always excited to experience whatever that place has to offer. However, things change as we get older. There will come a point that you just wanted to sit back, relax, eat and enjoy the simplest moment in your life. Sign of aging? Haha. Just breathing out the negativities, laid back and spending time with Mother Nature. 

     Few weeks ago we decided to visit a nature reserve in Antipolo. Saw a friend tagged in that post and by just looking at the picture we knew that the place is solemn. It's called Mount Purro Nature Reserve (MPNR).  We met TJ, COO (Child of the Owner) as he said. Hehe. He shared some history of their place and it was nice of him very approachable to the guests.
