Isla Felomina, the new in Puerto Princesa City.

Isla Felomina
If you think you’ve seen many places in Puerto Princesa City, think again, because this new spot is surely a new place to be for the tourism of the City in a forest.

Located in Brgy. New Panggangan, under the control of Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, is one of the many Community Base Sustainable Tourism Project of the City that was run by the locals of the area, they are called Nagkakaisang Samahan ng Isla Felomina with around 34 members mostly fisherman and their wives.

Also known as Isla Peodat, local prefer it to call as Isla Felomina in honor of St.Philomena, the virgin Saint from Greece that protect them from any storm or typhoon, the said islet is covering them from any huge waves during bad weather moment. 
There’s a lot of new in Isla Felomina since my first trip in the summer of 2016 with Team Byaheros MNL, a Comfort Room and dressing room is already built, a kubo hut for eating is also constructed, Pilipinas Shell Foundation support them by providing them Snorkels that they offer for rent, but its magnificent corals, the sunset and its relaxing ambiance is still there. You can have all day discovering the colorful world under, identifying different school of fishes, or exchanging stories with the members of the Organization, surely it is a blast.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play.

Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.
