SILAY: SHORT WALK

I went to great lengths to see Vigan, Ilocos Sur and Taal, Batangas because they have preserved their own historical architecture, and with heritage awareness.  But of they're not the only heritage town in the Philippines and Silay is among that list.   Silay City is about 15 minutes from Bacolod City by private car and around...

UAAP SEASON 77: UP V ADAMSON

  It was again a slow start for UP when they dropped the first set against the Lady Falcons.  But the Lady Maroons came back, and ended the match in four sets.  It was a long drawn battle between the ladies from Diliman and San Marcelino, scoring 22-25, 25-21, 29-27, 34-32.  Probably one of the longest and most exciting...

UAAP SEASON 77: UST V NU

Season 77 was probably one of the worst starts for the Tigresses.  They easily won against UE on opening day but lost all four of their succeeding games.  Despite a strong showing during the off season league, UST can't seem to pull themselves together and struggled at the start of the tournament.  UST fans lambasted...

UAAP SEASON 77: DLSU V UE

It was another day in the office for the Lady Spikers.  And another frustrating game for Coach Francis Vicente and the Lady Warriors.  It didn't help that UE struggled in scoring as they barely crossed double digits in every set. Didn't take a lot of shots in this game.  I was just trying to capture... Continue Reading →

UAAP SEASON 77: ATENEO V UP

Ateneo had a spotless record coming into the game, not dropping even a single set against its opponents.  UP on the other hand had was on a two game winning streak after it dropped its first two games against FEU and NU, and winning it's last two against UE and (a shocking upset against) UST....

UAAP SEASON 77: DLSU V ADAMSON

What will life be like for Adamson after losing their ace spiker Bang Pineda? Many predicted that they will be out of the running for the top four spot and will probably battle it out on the bottom half of the standings.  La Salle, on the other hand, has a new captain in the scoring...

UAAP SEASON 77: UP V FEU

I was as excited as most fans were to see UP go up against FEU, the team that they beat during the second round of Season 76.  The Lady Fighting Maroons was debuting three rookies: a natural setter, though small proved to have been a jewel (pun intended) of a find for Coach Jerry Yee; a tough...

BALER: CATCHING THE WAVES

For three years, our August escapade have taken us to different places: Oslob in 2012, Siquijor in 2013, and Baler in 2014.  We try to take time out from our regular work load and schedules to spend time with each other.  It had taken me a long time to write about this trip (I have yet...
