To many, it is known as Carabao Island, but to the locals, they call it Hambil. Having heard a lot of beautiful things and seeing those breath-taking photos of the beach in this island, makes me want to see it for myself. Located at the southern tip of Tablas Island, Romblon, it boasts to be a perfect antidote to the party scene of "Boracay". There are two main beaches in the island, San Jose beach on the eastern side and the Lanas beach on the west.
When you say Boracay, one will always think that everything in the island is expensive. Yes it's true, but there are several activities that you can do without breaking your pocket and still enjoy the fun and adventures in the island. These suggestions are my way of experiencing the fun and adventures in Boracay the best way possible my budget could afford. Hahaha! (READ: expensive is subjective)
After a quick visit to Roxas City and Panay, Capiz, I took a passenger van bound for Kalibo, Aklan. Since I didn't have much sleep the previous night, I was quickly brought into slumber the moment our van left Roxas City. It took us almost 2 hours to reach Kalibo and fare is 100 pesos.

I was able to tour Roxas City a bit more after visiting the Church of Panay. I asked the driver to bring me to the city center to see how the things are going there and to check some interesting sites that the city offers. He parked his tricycle in front of the cathedral and pointed to me the things that might interest me. I requested him to just wait for me there as I roam around.
After my sumptuous seafood lunch in Baybay Beach, I rented a tricycle that will bring me to the town of Pan-ay. Located just 20 minutes away southeast of Roxas City, it is considered as one of the oldest towns in the Philippines. Founded by Spanish Augustinian Friars in 1581, it became the 2nd Spanish settlement in the country next to Cebu.
It was already lunch time when our plane from Manila landed in Roxas City Capiz, the Seafood Capital of the Philippines. At that time, I was already very hungry. Oh yes! Very hungry! Hahaha! As they are known for seafood, I asked the tourism officer at the airport where I could eat fresh seafood here.
I've been very busy with traveling here and there and wasn't able to climb any mountain for more than 5 months. So, when my friend Kurt invited me for a dayhike in Mt. Talamitam last January 28, 2012, I instantly said yes. From where we live in Imus Cavite, we rode his motorcycle and it took us around 2 hours to reach the jump-off site at Sitio Bayabasan in Brgy. Aga, Nasugbu, Batangas.
