Mar 17, 2011 - Swiss Family Robinson

February 19 - 22 Ahhh... we finally found a little slice of paradise, on Sugar Beach in Sipalay on the island of Negros. We stayed at a wonderful place called Driftwood Village, where, true to the name, everything is literally made out of driftwood. We stayed in an adorable nipa hut* that barely has room for the double bed that's been placed in it, but that didn't matter as we spent nearly all our time down at the beach or hanging around the 'village.' The whole place has a very Swiss Family Robinson feel to it, except that there's a...

Sep 14, 2009 - Sipalay Market

Just after ordering breakfast one morning, Dina and Divine ask me if I fancy coming along with them to the market in Sipalay to do some shopping. Not having anything planned except an evening appointment with the sunset and a rum and coke, I jump at the chance, and rush back to my hut to get changed. I'm rushing around and grab my deodorant mineral stick, which I'm meant to run under a tap to get wet and then whack on, but in that fraction of a second that lies between action and thought, I lick the bloody thing (!) and it is with a tongue...

Sep 12, 2009 - Sugar Beach

Came back to Bacolod yesterday as there didn't seem much to do in Guimaras except get bitten by mozzies, although at Danny Boy's insistence I did take a look at the beach near Nuevo Valencia, with a vague idea of staying there a night, which I dismissed when I took a look at the overpriced pokey rooms they had. So back to Bacolod via Iloilo, taking a room at the 11th St Pension House, making the most of having cable TV in my room by buying a couple of cans of San Miguel Light and spending the evening channel surfing. My room at the 11th St...

Travels of a Kinnie

Apr 12, 2009 - 'Doing' Danjugan

Sipalay My stated goal on this trip (aside from writing a good book, ahem) was to do as much cool shit as possible. Yet here I was, two weeks into my trip, and the coolest thing I’d done was ridden a motorbike a modest 20 minutes to a relatively tame waterfall near Puerto Galera. This had to change. I define cool shit as adrenaline sports and/or encounters with wild animals (the two are not mutually exclusive, of course).* Going south toward Sipalay, my attention was focused on Danjugan Island, a sort of mini-Galapagos of odd creatures,...

Feb 7, 2007 - Sipalay "Sugar (Langub) Beach", Negros

Sipalay Feb 7th to Feb 12th We just couldn't resist visiting here. The book describes this place as a dream come true where you can pretend to be a castaway on a pristine beach, with only a few people around, clear blue waters and some of the best sun sets we've ever seen. They were right! Sugar Beach was amazing. To get here from Apo island we did an amazing race journey. A 30 min boat ride (where we got just drenched) .... 3 bus transfers northward.... a tricycle ride, another boat trip (the only way to the beach) and a 15 minute walk...
