Kez • The Isla Girl 🇵🇭

Diving, writing, and wandering from one ocean, province, or summit to another every time. 🌊🌴

We had to wake up at 3AM so we can try to catch the sunrise view. We were late, but I guess it’s alright after all. - Also, did we really have to get here just to see that this is a camera trick?? Is it an ongoing Balinese secret? 😂
It’ll feel strange—to finally realize that your happiness only depends on yourself and wholeheartedly accept it. - It’ll feel strange because this time, you’ll mean it. ✨
I’m off to another adventure next week and here I am, stuck in such a huge pile of clothes, not knowing where and when to start packing. - Every time I leave for a getaway, I always ponder on how amazing my life is because I get to do all these things. I have a job that pays not only my and my family’s bills, it also lets me enjoy de-stressing vacations such as this. And I am always in awe and gratitude. - Every so often we come to a halt to be thankful because of grand happenings in our lives, but how often do we stop for the minute ones? The fact that we are breathing. Right. At. This. Moment. It’s such a minute detail that we tend to overlook its importance. - And while I get to sort out all my stuff, I hope I’ll be able to sort out my thoughts too. Same as the clothes on my bed right now, this train of thought? ....messy - Nonetheless, let the universe know that I am thankful, for everything that I am able to enjoy right now. Time. Money. Freedom. - I bet this is just Bali jitters. I’ll get over this.
In the silence, make a stand and be firm about it. If there is one good thing that we can do with the influence, it is to inspire others. Because if we don’t, then all of it doesn’t matter.
Balabac is quiet, but it deserves the attention. ❤️
It’s always a choice—happiness. . . . It’s Day 3 here in Balabac and signal is scarce, but the stories to tell aren’t! Can’t wait to get back and start sharing. 😊
Chill summer days aren’t over. Clouds won’t stop us. 🤣 . . We arrived early that morning in Liwliwa, but we opted to rest. Afternoon came, but the waves weren’t surfing-friendly so we decided to surf the next morning. It was one of the most chill trips that I have been to. We just sat there, beer and chicharon in our hands. That was enough, we were content. 💙

Sea creature found her bliss underwater. 💙
I learned that in this day and age, happiness can never be overrated. Stay sunny and shining. ✨
What a rough day! . We rode endless habal-habal rides because of a broken down tricycle from uphill roads and missed van/bus rides to Davao. . We’re currently on a bus en route to Davao, finally! . . But when you look at that, doesn’t all the hassle of long travels and heavy backpacks (not to mention fins) make it worth it? ❤️
Pujada Island, you are amazing. ✨
Now, this is the Santa that I like. 😍
Those who love you aren't fooled by mistakes you've made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly, your wholeness when you are broken, your innocence when you feel guilty, and your purpose when you're confused. —Alan Cohen
A grand reminder of how little I am in this vast world. My troubles are a speck of dust compared to the loneliness that this universe already is. 🍃
Going to places in Mindanao like Sulu may seem to be a crazy idea, but we’re a bunch of crazies after all. 🤷🏽‍♀️ . . Kidding aside, one important pro tip (if not the most important one) in coming here is to contact the tourism office and notify them of your visit. This way, you will be certain of your safety while having fun. It was a Sunday, but they were generous with their time and resources to help us with our tour. . . Btw, I now have a “scam story,” kwento on the next post? 😅
Today was amazing ✨
