Review: The Cabin Resort — TheHelioPaths

As the saying goes, try and try until you succeed, that’s my mantra with online contest, may it be free tickets or 1 night hotel accommodation, I am up for that! Then I came across a new resort and they have an online contest and the winner will have a 1 night free accommodation. The […]

The Heliopaths 2nd Anniversary | Kalanggaman Island

Kalanggaman Island 🙂

TheHelioPaths

Last year we celebrated The Heliopaths annivesary in Cebu where we swam with whale sharks, basked in the sun, went through a waterfall, breathed our first breath under waterlearned about historylearned about history and faced our fear of heights. This year we headed back to Visayas but this time explore the beauty of Samar, Leyte and Biliran. Lucky for us, we only paid less than PHP 150 for our base fare. Woohoo! Thank goodness for seat sales and most especially for Airasia for making it possible for us “kuripots” to travel and explore our beloved Philippines.

DCIM101GOPROGOPR1924.

Seat sales were most likely to be followed by numerous delayed flights and yes our supposed 3:40 PM flight was delayed over 4 hours! Imagine the horror of waiting in the airport not knowing if our flights will be cancelled but thanks to my babies, the Transfoamers we were…

From Midnight til’ Sun Rise | Sambawan Island

Sambawan Island 🙂

TheHelioPaths

We were supposed to visit Tinago Falls before heading to Sambawan Island however, due to the bad weather and for everyone’s safety we decided to just go straight to Sambawan Island. After almost 4 hours of land travel from Palompon, we finally arrived at Naval port.


There were no passenger boat anymore so we had to go ask around and find a boat that will take us to the island. Luckily we found one that’s more than big enough to accommodate our group. It even had a videoke machine/cinema on board to keep us entertained for the long wait and boat ride. It was pretty spacious too so we were able to cook and have dinner on board. After dinner, some us stayed in the boat while others laid on the roof of the boat to stargaze. It was pretty surreal being in the middle of the ocean in complete darkness. The…

In Search of Beauty | Ulan-Ulan Falls, Biliran, Leyte

Ulan Ulan Falls 🙂

TheHelioPaths

So far our Leyte trip has been amazing. Realizing that this is our last day in Leyte, we decided to visit one of the hidden gems in this wonderful province. We headed back to mainland Naval where our van was waiting to pick us up. We were all very tired after our fun filled all nighter in Sambawan Island. I think all of us were asleep on the way to Brgy. Sampao where Ulan-Ulan falls is located. We arrived at the jump off after a 2 hour drive from the port. There weren’t any signs/directions on the way to the jump off so we had to stop a couple of times to ask the locals for directions. The jump-off point was actually just a waiting shed. Entrance fee is PHP 2o and surprisingly there were no guides. Make sure you register your name in the log book!

Alternative Learning System | Brgy. Puray, Rodriguez, Rizal – Update

Puray our Second Home

TheHelioPaths

     Its been 3 years since our first hike in Puray Sierra Madre. Ever since then, we have been coming back for more. So what keeps us from coming back? The amazing view? countless photo opportunities? experience? Sure those things are nice but what really make us come back is the love and the warmth only the people of Puray can give.

     I have always been fond of kids and you will love them more once you get to meet the sweet little ones of this place. They will give you the most genuine smile and the warmest hugs without giving them anything, just your time and presence is enough for them. I would really love to see them grow and succeed in life but life can be difficult especially when their parents means of living is charcoal making.

Where the Silver Lining Meets the Golden Sand | Jomalig Island 

Jomalig Trip

TheHelioPaths

It was last February 2015 when we first attempted to visit Jomalig Island but we missed the last scheduled boat in Atimonan, Quezon so instead, we just went to Borawan Island in Padre Burgos. We have been trying to schedule a trip to Jomalig for quite some time but because it’s too far we found it hard to fit it in our schedule. But finally, after more than a year in the making, our Jomalig dream finally came true! 🙂


Jomalig Island is an unspoiled part (and I hope it stays that way) of the Polillo Group of Islands in the west of the Pacific Ocean. However, due to its unique beauty it is becoming more and more popular with tourists and travelers alike. It was even featured in GMA’s iJuander show.
Since it was the Lenten season, most of the city folks went out of town, some to visit…
