Let us #helpDOT help the Philippines

If you are wondering what this blog is all about, it is an online presence for my experiences in my new journey in the Tourism industry; a creative avenue to think, plan, create, design, innovate, collaborate and do something concrete for our country; a repository of ideas, photos and stories of the beauty and grandeur of our culture and heritage as Filipinos.

It is not an easy task, I would admit. This is a small contribution, an initiative, to help make people aware and care about Philippine Tourism and the Philippines. We are just starting. What is important is that we start somewhere. We would need more people, our fellow Filipinos, and our friends, to see this through, and make it a reality. :)

Yes, I am with the Department of Tourism (DOT), but this is an unofficial, personal, journal that will document exciting and memorable episodes in my journey we all can learn from and be proud of. So first, I am proud to say, Pilipinas Kay Ganda! The Philippines is so beautiful! I agree with this statement completely. If only we get to see it through our own eyes. If only we had the opportunity to travel and experience it first hand. If only we let others take us through, then probably, even how tiny it can be, it will affect and effect our desired outcome.

I have a lot of backlogs I want to share with you, but for now, I leave you with the Giant Lantern Festival that will happen tomorrow in the Christmas Capital of the Philippines, San Fernando, Pampanga (Region III).

It will be my first time to see for myself the beauty of the Giant Lantern Festival. There's a scheduled fireworks exhibition to cap-off the event before midnight.

Tara, game na! I am all ready. Let's go and explore the Philippines! XD


  1. Intramuros Electric Chariots Tour Launched

    For the first time in Philippine history, an Electric Chariots tour of Intramuros has been launched by White Knight tours at Hotel Intramuros fronting San Agustin Chruch. The Electric Chariots are 2 wheel equipments with automatic balancing electronic gadget that moves forward if your body leans forward and stops or move backward as you lean backwards. The guided tours using electric chariots amplify the most recent tourism slogan of “It’s more fun in the Philippines” for indeed, the exhalation as well. White Knight offers 30 minutes and 1 hour guided tours of Intramuros with price ranging from Php500 for 30minutes and Php1000 for 1 hour. Unlike riding the horse driver Chariots tours which provide passive involvements for passengers and tourist, the Electric Chariots reinvigorates the user with its interactive role of balancing and inspires a sense of adrenaline rush. It’s an experience in a life time that one should never miss! For further info, White Knight Tours contact details are telephone: +6325 5252381 or +632 5266181
