Funtivity: Adventures in Bubbaland

Nice thing about traveling, you never know who or what you're gonna meet.
So we were walking along the rice fields of Antique when...

we find Bubba!
We stop and chat over drinks.
and talk about the beautiful scenery.
Then he let's us hop on for a ride, around the fields
up to the street!
Yeah! Nice meeting you Bubba! That was some trip. :-D

Funtivity: Namaste

One day we decided to have another sleepover to do early morning yoga the next day.

There's nothing like waking up at sunrise, getting on the mat and greeting the day doing something we love.

We saw Bolabog Beach come to life as people started going out for their morning walk; fishermen preparing for their day's work; kiteboarders bringing their kites out and everyone else just going about their own business.

We're definitely doing it again! Namaste!

Good Vibes: MC Yogi - Give Love (Giving4Living Remix)

MC Yogi - Give Love (Giving4Living Mix) from MC Yogi on Vimeo.

MC Yogi came up with this song and video for which was initiated by the same people who put up Yoga Aid events together gathering yogis and teachers to practice yoga and raise awareness for some charities. This song is about being generous with our selves, the people around us and the entire planet through love. What a catchy reminder of the universal principle of attraction indeed -- what we give is what we get.

So go on, give love today. Creating goodness in the world knows no limit after all.


MC Yogi (aka Nicholas Giacomini) was introduced to yoga through his father when he was eighteen and together joined a meditation intensive with a spiritual teacher in India. This led to a great interest in Eastern mysticism since then, his study and practice of the physical forms of yoga, meditation, philosophy and devotional chanting or bhakti yoga. His knowledge and passion for both yoga and hip-hop music definitely channels a message of peace and spiritual transformation to a whole new generation of yes, modern mystics and urban yogis.

Funtivity: Postcards from a Roadtrip

We started February with a trip to Antique Province. It's just a 2 hour drive from the Caticlan port, but it was a roadtrip nonetheless. We stared out the window as we cruised by the scenic beach side road with vast rice fields on the other side.

It was refreshing to take a break from our home island and usual routines. We headed to my Lola's (grandmother's) home in the town of Cubay where we lounged in her garden and stuffed ourselves silly with home-cooked meals.

We're excited to post other photos and rice-field adventures. In the meantime, here are a few stills.

This is for Jof, 1/4th of islaboheme. Wish you were here. :-)

Baby Love

Our dearest Shiva,

It was a beautiful Sunday morning when you were christened.


Your mother, a dear friend of ours, decided to name you Shiva - inspired by our yoga practice at Mandala Spa. It's a Sanskrit name for a Hindu god.

However Shiva also means the divine.


Welcome to the island Shiva! :) may you always remember your divinity... and may your life be one beautiful adventure.


With Love,

Your Godmothers :)
