DINAGAT ISLANDS ON MY MIND

This islands along with the hundreds of islands that can be found in the Island Province of Dinagat are among the best island destinations in Mindanao that until now I still want to see and explore. These amazing province of natural wonders are blessed with pristine beaches, coves and islands that best describe the beauty that is - the Philippines. To many, Dinagat Island is a tourist destination to explore but to its people it is called it a “Mystical Island Province of Love”, a place of unexplored natural wonders love and protected by its people.

TRAVEL. EXPLORE. WANDER.

MY LITTLE TOWNMATES AND ME

In my recent visit to my birthplace of Cateel this weekend for the Art Therapy Workshop, I was so privileged to be surrounded with these little souls of my hometown who will surely be future instruments of change in Cateel. These kids are survivors of the Super Typhoon Pablo that ravaged the whole town last December 4, 2012. Today, six months after it happened, these kids along with my townsfolk are slowly getting back and moving forward from the most horrific aftermath of the monstrous disaster. Despite what happened, they are all so hopeful of seeing a new CATEEL. Being with these kids made me feel like one of them - they brought out the CHILD in me! Thank you little ones!

ART THERAPY WORKSHOP FOR THE KIDS OF CATEEL

Using art as a medium for expression to reduce stress and anxiety, the ART THERAPY WORKSHOP is conceptualized to relate to the participants' experience and current situation while dealing with the aftermath of Super Typhoon Pablo. It aims to help participants express their understandings, thoughts, confusions and dreams through illustrations, colors and performance art.
