Greetings from the tip of The Philippines!

Honesty Cafe: the soda bottle and my social experiment. More to come!


the time-warped Village of Chavayan



The landscape here is so rugged + little villages with houses that look like Medieval cottages (little houses with stonewalls + cogon roofing) make Batanes a place like nowhere else in The Philippines.


At Batanes' finest: Fundacion Pacita Abad Ecolodge
Fundacion Pacita Abad Ecolodge has the best location in the island nga maka-ingon jud kag (which makes you holler) "this is it! this is it!"


Weird cockcrow here. Is it because of the wine or is it just me?
 A 'heaven on earth' barely a hundred kilometers from Taiwan! I have a theory that roosters in Batanes crow in Mandarin! Lahi ra jud mutuktugauk. Pramis :)
