Scuba Diving in El Nido

Falling in love with El Nido

A brief moment in Manila

During my recent trip to Philippines, I have to spend one night in Manila before catching a plane to Puerto Princesa in Palawan island on the next day. While I was in Manila, I wasted no time and went for sightseeing on foot and sampled some local delicacies.
