Dimakya Island

Just off the northern coast of Busuanga is a 19-hectare dot of an isle called Dimakya. Named after the jellyfish (dikya) for its topography that resembles the animal, it offers far more residents in its surrounding reef than what its name implies. 733 more words

Beyond the Sea by Melissa Bailey

‘The power of the sea always prevails…’

Once in a while, the right book comes along at just the right time. On holiday in the South of Wales surrounded by stunning countryside and views of the sea was the perfect setting in which to lose myself in this wonderful novel. 602 more words

Somewhere in the Sulu Sea 2

Rating- 10/10

Another fine example of what this show can do, meshing character-centric plot with a case-of-the-week seamlessly. Gillian gives her best performance yet, and Dourif as Boggs is able to be unsettling and sympathetic at the same time, making the viewer wonder whether to be repulsed or pity him. 21 more words

Somewhere in the Sulu Sea

We had a chance to visit an uninhabited island yesterday. Not one of the best in the Philippines, but I wasn’t about to pass up on an opportunity to see what’s beyond the sea and have a day at the beach. 160 more words
