In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta.

During my 4-day trip to Palawan, one of the highlights of my tour is going to an undiscovered island along the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park - friends I give you Isla Felomina. 


Isla Felomina is the newest diving and snorkeling spot in Puerto Princesa Palawan. Very few have known this islet along the subterranean river. Water lovers and beach bum will surely fell in love with this place. Crystal clear water and lots of little fish are seen here.

- At the port, hire a pump boat going to Isla Felomina. Fare Php 2,000 / USD 44.00 good for 6 pax.


Before going to the island you have to call/sms Barangay Captain Hipolito at (63) 905-2972477 if you opt to have lunch at the island prepared by the locals. Entrance fee is Php 168.00 / USD 3.7  and Entrance with lunch is Php 360.00 / USD 8.00 - Rice, Fish, Veggies and local desserts.

I am blessed and still overwhelmed with the kind of experience I had during my Palawan tour. Thank you so much Palawan tourism.

  4. My family members are not really beach-lovers, so we may just stay on the beach and not venture into the water if we go here. I can only snorkel if they have masks with corrective lenses. The first time I dove with those masks with visual grade, it was also in Palawan, in Dos Palmas.

It's Summer time now!

Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand. La Thalia is a half hectare property that has a great beach front andrelaxing rooms - couple room & barkada room/family room, Pavillion that can accommodate 100 pax, restaurant, basketball court, table tennis, and water sports such as Jetski, Paddle Boat, Kayak and they also offer island tour where you and your group can have fish feeding and snorkeling at the same time.
