Welcome to my Eworld

This site is solely dedicated to my travelling experiences both locally and abroad. When I say locally, it refers to my escapade in my home country, the Philippines; while abroad covers my travels in Asia, Europe and UK, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, as well as my future trips to Africa, China and Arabic countries.

Some of these travel journals photos are previously posted in my Friendster blog ( My Simple Life - unfortunately the blog is already dormant now); Travel Blog account, Travellerpoints account; but majority of them are shared in my e-Travel Guide account in TRIVAGO. I also write stories about these locations in my JPGMagazine account. Good luck and have fun reading my TRAVELdiary...

About Philippines: Did you know that?

RAINS are now pounding the country for several days and as usual, more Filipinos will be affected by traffic due to flooded streets in the metropolis and neighboring provinces. Some of them are panicking for possible evacuation especially for those living along rivers and creeks.

One of the major causes of traffic and flooding in Metro Manila is over-increasing population in the urban centers which accounts for 13 percent of the Philippine population even it only shares 0.18 percent of the total land area of the country.
The population of the Philippines in 1896 was around 6.26 million but this figure excludes non-Christians. In 2010, the country population reached 92.34 million.
DID YOU KNOW THAT ... the 2010 census shows that the city of Manila has the highest population density of 66,087 per square km with the population of 1.65 million. Following the capital city is Mandaluyong and Pasay with the density of 35,344  and 28,062 persons per square km, respectively; while Pateros is the least populated area in the metropolis with 64,147 people and population density of 6,168.
Barangay 176 in Caloocan City is considered as the biggest village in the country.
DID YOU KNOW THAT... there are villages in the country with no people living or residents in the area? These villages include: Barangay Fuentes in Iloilo and Barangays Guinsaugon and Punta in Southern Leyte.
Quezon City is considered as the biggest city with the population of 2.76 million, while Kalayaan in Palawan is the smallest town with only 222 people living in the area.
Cavite is considered as the biggest province with the population of 3.09 million people and Batanes is the smallest province with 16,604 population.
DID YOU KNOW THAT...Region IV-A - Calabarzon is the most populated region with 12.6 M people, followed by Metro Manila with 11.86 million population and Region III - Central Luzon with 10.13 million people.
