Looks like an awesome trip filled with sublime beauty. It looks like it must have been very hot, especially being so near to the equator. Some pics seem over-saturated but it really does add to the exotic tropical feeling.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I'm glad you got a little bit of curation from OCD. Your post formatting is also very good.

You're right, @crytosharon, it was really hot and humid that time. I just realized that I tend to over-saturate when I edit my photos, but I tend to do it unconsciously. Sometimes I just let it be, but other times I re-edit it if it becomes too much.

I'm really grateful to the OCD community for their support. Actually, I'm a little bit pressured to continue posting the same level of quality, but I'm really thankful for the curators who believed in my work.

As for the formatting, that's one I could be proud of so thank you for the compliment. I worked on that for a long time and still continuing to experiment with what's good. It takes almost 1/3 of the time to do the formatting, but I'm enjoying every bit of it.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

That's something I've struggled with as well, getting curated and then wanting to get curated again, doing big posts and spending a lot of time and energy on it. I got too stressed out, and it was not my thing. I decided to relax, take it slow and make one small post per day.

Getting a lot of money at a time can be stressful lol. I'm too frugal. Dealing with big numbers gives me anxiety. I do hope to keep seeing your awesome photography. I'll be following you to see what you come up with next time :P

Wow! Thank you! Following you now, too! Now I'm anxious to give my best. Be warned though, I'm still a noob when it comes to photography. I got my camera last year and I didn't have enough practice.

I'm sure that most of us here can relate to that sentimentality when we visit our hometowns. I haven't visited mine in about 22 years, since I was young, but I still think about the small town where I was raised up and dream about the place all the time. Even if things cannot be as they once were, it's good to still have the memories.

I totally agree with this, @aur. Memories of my childhood are still very vivid to me because it was one of the most colorful moments of my life.

Great post, I was very laughing about Windows XP!

Yeah! Tourists here in the Philippines love giving nicknames to places even if its just a slight resemblance.

hehehe very funny!

What, for real? What are some other funny nicknames they give to stuff? :D

They call this garden here in Cebu "The Little Amsterdam" or "Holland of Cebu". It's just Sirao flower garden. I haven't featured it yet, but I'm planning to.

My auto-correct keeps on suggesting Algeria when I was typing this post. I had to add Alegria because it gets annoying. 😂
