"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

B minus

"A man travels the world in search of what he needs
and returns home to find it."

--George Moore

my lakbayan grade is B-!

B- is not a bad grade but it's not good enough. hello, i was born to deserve A's. i really do have to travel more. i have to reach palawan, albay and sorsogon, sulu, and, of course -- would i ever forget -- batanes!!!

i need to cover all those remaining white spots in my philippine map. among other things, i have to see the hundred islands, enjoy pagudpud, visit kalinga, set foot in the islands of mindoro, romblon, and masbate, enjoy roadtrips in leyte and samar, get friendly with the tarsiers in bohol, feel the surf in siargao, climb mt. banahaw and mt. apo, have an adventure in maguindanao, maybe play hide and seek in basilan...

well, i'm only 24 years old now. by the time i'm 26, i'm gonna be an A traveler! how's that for a self-prophecy? not bad, i say. i dare say. after all, i do believe in fairies... (hahaha, those who know trivial stuff from movies will surely get what this means!)


june 23-24, 2007: weekend in sta. cruz, tangub city


  1. hey, thanks for the link. i will link you up too.

    Mine is C+. I haven't been to many parts of Luzon. Di ko pa napuntahan ang baguio and many parts north of quezon city. pero covered ko na most of visayas and northern mindanao.

    try ko ma visit gensan next month. :)

  2. hi caterpillar,

    if you need a travel buddy, just give me a shout, and let’s go!

  3. Hi :-) Since you like travelling, I’d like to invite you to check out www.youthtrip.org. It’s about Pili-Pinas, choosing the Philippines in travel, in merchandise, in voting… lahat na.

    btw, im from the north. I could help you with your Luzon itinerary. Your wishlist is similar to mine, and I’d assume, with a lot of other Pinoys. Tara!

  4. suya ko da. i'll post my lakbayan grade soon.

    today is 7/7/7! weeee.

  5. lazarus, yeah, our lakbayan grades inspire us to travel more.

    kars, i'll keep that in mind. i know you're as excited to travel and discover places as i do. i'll really contact you especially if the destination is sulu. :)

    cga, thanks for the heads up. i added a youth trip link to my sidebar links. :)

    bren, yaw ka-suya oi. for all we know, you'll reach B+ or A level ahead of me. who knows, di ba?

  6. giaherks!!! i'm a C- traveler! tsk, tsk.
