Only in Iba

Only in Iba

Subic comes to mind whenever one asks about the best place for a sojourn in Zambales. Unknown to many, Iba is the place calling not only for discovery but also for rediscovery. Although most of the younger generation chatter on mobile phones and live in concrete houses, the incursions of these modern-day life have done little to disturb the ancient rhythms of this tropical paradise. One realizes that the longer he spends time in Iba, the better he understands that the past is ever present and is just living beneath the surface. There are still unspoiled landscapes and gracious, unassuming people ready to give directions and answer any query pertaining to the place. The allure of the place is that one never quite knows what's around the corner.


"Nature is the act of God." "Let us be silent, that we may
 hear the whispers of the gods."

"In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths
you took, but how many moments took your breath  

-Shing xiong

                    "Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet
                      and the winds long to play with your hair."

                                                         -Khalil Gibran

                          "To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven
                            in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands,
                            and eternity in an hour."

                                                           -William Blake


"I like a path with personality, one that keeps my
attention and reveals itself, bend by bend."
