Pandora the Explorer


Pandora The Explorer It was the end of March and I decided to walk at the dark sides of a busy city and some strange thing happened to me. Let me tell you the experiences I had while having a walk at a memorable place of the city. Walking alone at a place where a […]

One of the rangers of the park who doubled as our guide. He is a Mangyan, and treats this place as a sacred space. It is part of his job to make sure that there is no poaching happening in the area.


Something Unexpected in the Philippines


Searching frantically for scraps of food, like ants trapped inside a lunchbox, it was that all too familiar look of confusion mixed with a hopeful desperation that brought us together.

Tripping down Asia’s Memory Lane: My Top 10


I have never understood how anyone can like January. The sad, sinking feeling caused by limp, leftover tinsel hanging in shops, braving the dreary weather without any promise of a mulled wine stop, realising that everyone you know has vowed to lose weight, save money or quit drinking- it is a real slog of a […]

The Road to Making a Difference in the Philippines


Sitting by the beach watching the sun turn from white to orange to red as it gets immersed in the sea is a moment that can switch on your creative button. It is a great spot to read a book, write a story, or simply sip a cocktail drink and breathe in the fresh sea […]
