A Journey into Taal Volcano’s Crater! (Photo Essay)

by Monique Tendencia

_DSC8521

Taal Volcano is perhaps one of the most well-known and easily recognizable volcanoes in the Philippines – and rightly so. Taal Volcano's unique structure and location make it a constant backdrop and conversation starter.

Inside the crater is a tiny island called Vulcan Point. Its uniqueness remains solely on the fact that it is a third-order island.

 

What is a third order island?

lol-journeyman-7803

Vulcan Point is the tiny dot inside the crater.

A third order island is any landmass within a lake that reaches the third degree. Vulcan Point is inside the Crater Lake (3rd), which is inside Taal Volcano surrounded by Taal Lake (2nd), which is then inside Luzon Island, a part of the Philippine archipelago, and within the Pacific Ocean (1st).

 

So how does one reach Vulcan Point?

DOS MESTIZOS Boracay: Is this Spanish-Filipino Heritage Restaurant Still Good?

dosmes11

Dos Mestizos is a family run restaurant that opened its doors nearly 13 years ago and was the brain child of Jose Carlos Remedios aka Binggoy. It started out as your typical mom and pop shop and over the years it has evolved into one of Boracay's best and well-known establishments.  

The secret to Dos Mestizos success is in the simplicity of its menu.  Basic, Rustic, and straight to the point, the culinary heritage of Mestizo cuisine is perfectly preserved in every dish.  

From Tapas to Paella, the menu incorporates fresh ingredients that are mostly sourced locally. Locals and foreigners visiting Boracay flock to Dos Mestizos for these very reasons.

(Mestizo is a term in the Philippines used to describe people of Spanish heritage.)

Philippine Wrestling Revolution: “This is Awesome! 👏👏👏 Nyeeeam!” (A REVIEW) @PWROfficial

Philippine Wrestling Revolution-46.jpg

Philippine Wrestling Revolution is the premier professional wrestling show in the Philippines featuring our very own Pinoy Wrestlers and a Live experience that will surely get you hooked into the storyline.  PWR was founded last December 2013 with the aim to become the premier wrestling promotion in Southeast Asia.

We grew up watching WWF (now WWE) with our dad until there was a scandal that revealed that all the matches are scripted. After a while, you get to appreciate the wrestling matches like watching a theatrical wrestling show and you are on the edge on what will happen next.

I’ve always wanted to watch a live wrestling match and here’s what we think about PWR Live in Manila…
