If you have a bird guide and binoculars, all the better. You can...

  • Sound of Music's Gazebo?

    In a corner of the PP coliseum plaza is this gazebo that somehow resembles the one used in the film Sound of Music. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to take my picture under it. However, its door was locked so I was not able to get through.

  • Heron! Heron!

    While cruising along the dirt road inside Iwahig's compound, I was fascinated to see an herd of Herons in the rice field. I immediately asked my trike driver to stop so I could take a photo. It is not always I see a big group of white birds, especially not in Manila.

He brought me to Pristine Beach.Across the street from the PP airport is a dirt road leading to 3 adjacent picnic resorts - Pristine,...
