I have been wanting to travel to this Island as part of my “Exploring Quezon Province” bucket list.
Then my friend, who makes tours, invited me to this event so why would i say No.

I can’t remember the exact date and time I was invited on this event. As far as I remember I was invited 2 weeks before the said event and of course I immediately said Yes.
