About

Vagabond here means to roam about. And what could be better than roaming around Bulusan town and neighboring villages, town and cities by doing it with a local. I recently moved back to my hometown both by choice and circumstance. It is a rediscovery of my childhood place and an opportunity of seeing it in a different perspective.

Bulusan is still unspoiled by commercial tourism–for now. In the Poblacion one will experience the feeling of ecological richness in the middle of a microcosm of  biodiversity.  At my back is a pristine rain forest with the most dense canopy still intact,  with the freshest of springs and an emerald-green lake nestled in the composite mountains of Bulusan Volcano. In front is a Pacific Ocean’s view unsurpassed in the province with its rich coral-rimmed beaches with sand ranging from cream to black to pebbles. Its texture is infinite. It is a rural kaleidoscope.

Be warned though that my rural wandering route is not the usual tourist menu. It is a native route.

Irregularly, whenever it is possible, this will include interspersed items that  find  its way into my personal milieu such as art, poetry, video/film and music – stuff  I’m interested in. Furthermore, this may include also some of my writing attempts exploring real and imagined situations to spice up my rather staid country life.

      • Hi Sam! You are already welcome. Three days surfing my page/s on the net is equivalent to more than that in real days. I’m glad you were able to ‘find’ me in the blogosphere 🙂

        Thank you for the ‘take care’ message. I need that. We all need that 🙂

        Take care!

  2. Salamat tabi, Mr. Sorsogon City. Pirmi ako nagbabasa san imo mga posts maski sadto pa na wara pa ako sa blogosphere. Honestly, an panabot ko sini na website mo e-newspaper 🙂

    Btw, newbie lang ako dini sa blogging. I tried blogging (as filler activity) upon my ‘return’ to Bulusan to take care of my aging mother after almost a year of on and off hospital care last year. A digital ‘hybrid’ camera revived my dormant shutterbug mode to frenzied shutter mode. With hundreds of photo filed, the next thing to do is what else? Blog. This came later though with the help of a patient teacher – http://pamughaton.wordpress.com/. I started blogging regularly here at wordpress November 2012 with my photos in mind. If there is a photo there is always something to say about it – like lyrics to a melody however dissonant. Also, for an introvert and a painfully shy person like me, the blog sphere is a vast world where I can meet people like you 🙂

    Aw, sin-o ka baya tabi, Mr. Sorsogon City?

  3. Have browsed your awesome photos and amazed me with wonderful nature of your hometown. You mentioned that you came back to your hometown. Where did you venture before? Have been missing a very good long time friend from Bulusan, Sorsogon. Cheers and hope to be connected … regards and God bless!!

    • Thank you so much, Michelle for taking this effort to connect. Sorry for this delayed reply. Time warp effect, I guess. But for sure I will be keeping in touch.

      One of life’s greatest gift is a good friend… and you are my original bff!
      My warmest regards! I have a message in your FB site.
      God bless you too, Michelle!
