How to Heal After a Heartbreak According to Sakaling Hindi Makarating
There's a reason why we instantly fell in love with Ice Idanan's Sakaling Hindi Makarating, which stars Alessandra de Rossi, Pepe Herrera, and JC Santos. Not only did it show us how beautiful the Philippines is; it also showed us our number one solution to all forms and sorts of heartbreak: getout of our comfort zones and discover new places.
But if you think the movie takes us to the usual spots in the country, that's where you're wrong. Instead of taking us to famous tourist spots in the Philippines like Boracay or Davao, Sakaling Hindi Makarating took us to these gorgeous places that are certainly worth our time, attention, and even savings.
So if you're planning to go on a Sakaling Hindi Makarating adventure a la Cielo, here's a handy guide with the help of our friends from Travel Book for you!
Cielo's first stop after she decided to let M's postcards take the lead? Zamboanga! Aside from taking in the wonderful view of the colorful vintas, you can also explore the place and allow it to take you back to the Spanish era. Just don't forget to taste it's famous dishes, like the famous Satti from Jimmy's!
Her next stop? Siquijor. Known as the Mystic Island, this place is known for the mysteries that surround it, including magic and sorcery. But beyond those rumors and stories, there's a beautiful place that has plenty of things to offer travelers. Don't forget to visit its famous waterfalls, Lugnason Falls and Cambugahay Falls, and also the famous Old Enchanted Balete Tree!
Located at the southern part of Luzon, Marinduque is famous for the Moriones Festival which takes place during the Holy Week. But if you're looking for other things to do in the place, you can walk the road leading up to the Marinduque Museum and feel like you're traveling back in time.
Aside from enjoying the sun and the clear waters in Pagudpud, there are a ton of things you can do in Ilocos! You can visit the sand dunes and ride an ATV and explore old places, like Bacarra's Domeless Bell Tower and the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse.
There's a good reason why Batanes is famous. Aside from its cool climate and it's beautiful, green hills, travelers and tourists can also enjoy the peace that comes with being so far from everything. And while you're there, make sure you also check out the famous Basco Lighthouse, Turungan Cave, and the traditional stone houses of the locals.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
