Guys, this is definitely worth checking out.

Another proof that I do not know my own region at all! I guess it’s time to start finding out…

For starters, they have a website. So check it out.


I’ve checked the website, drooled and wondered where I have been hiding all these years. I knew I shouldn’t have worked inside a research lab at all, I missed out on a lot of things. 🙁
O ako lang ba ang hindi alam ang lugar na ito before now?

    Masbate is definetly a place to VISIT! It is the RODEO capital of the Philippines, they have it yearly in Masbate Proper around end of April/early May. Lots of places to go and see, beaches, caves, waterfalls, etc..

    Khokak Beach Resort is being developed right now w/ a Hotel and First Class Cabins based on Italian concept and designs. It is located about 80 kms South of Masbate City, in Cataingan, the 2nd biggest Municipality in Masbate. On the way there, you will pass by Nabangig, Palanas where you will also find tiny beach resorts on the side of the main road.

    Balanguingui Island is another place to see, it’s in Pio V. Corpus. Owned by the AVILA family, it’s a beautiful virgin island as well.

    there are so many beautiful islands in masbate that needs to be discovered. i’ve been to masbate a few years ago, i went there for work so i definitely do not have to time to visit these islands. but we’re planning to go there this june, i think you should also visit this island called “buntod”. 🙂

  • Wow! This place looks awesome! Can’t wait to visit.

  • Trish

    wow! i’ll definitely go here!
