Kian Loyd Delos Santos, the Last Straw Breaking Duterte's Back politics

Kian Loyd Delos Santos, the Last Straw Breaking Duterte's Back

(Aug 21, 2017) For love of country, I supported Duterte despite his atrocious imperfections. I maintained that as flawed as he is, he is still the only one with political will to reform society the way he did in Davao. But the national campaign against the drug problem morphed into a ruthless genocide with no end in sight - 7000+ deaths and counting. Duterte's cure is killing the country faster than the drug problem itself. With the unconscionable killing of a 17-year old student who begged for mercy to catch a school exam, the last straw has finally broken the camel's back. Now, an entire country is outraged by the lawless impunity of those who have sworn to uphold it....more »»

You can't get enough of Pescador Island, just a stone's throw from the main Moalboal peninsula.....more »»

Pranayama in Moalboal yoga

Pranayama in Moalboal

(Aug 3, 2017) What baffles me is how could something (breath regulation) so powerful be free and readily available? And how could it be so ignored? People would rather spend an arm-and-a-leg on hyped-up supplements and risk side-effects or outright fraud! From my humble experience, pranayama is the fountain of youth, the giver of strength and the unfathomable source of energy - and it's all free for the taking!...more »»
