The man behind
I used to be a musician before I came in Cebu, but still trying to get this passion out of my system. Unfortunately I can’t. That’s why it still brings me to write songs behind everybody’s back. I would only have the chance to sing these songs with my band when I get back in my hometown during the Holidays. You can check my band’s page by clicking this link: The Happiest
The idea to become a full-time blogger came to me after reading couple of blogs on the Net. It was also my last refuge to find the right place to publish my own essays and short stories, which became humble entries in Palanca for quite some time. But never won, of course. I was an amateur. I didn’t have formal education in writing. I didn’t even have the slightest talent to become a creative writer.
My passion in writing began after reading countless of books on my father’s book shelf. I loved writing at days when there weren’t any shows for my band. I was actually writing not for anybody but for the sake of vanity. And so the essays, the short stories, and screenplays I had written were abandoned, kept in a crypt. This vanity struck me again and decided to write again. This time I wanted people to read them. This is how I made from nonoyavellanosa.blogspot.com to nonoyavellanosa.wordpress.com.
Cebu and Davao
The first blog that was properly introduced to me was I Love/Hate America, which was authored by one of my childhood neighbors back in my hometown. The author’s name is Vivienne Paras Coyne who is now married to an American.
Since she migrated to the land of the free, she also has her own sentiments and views about the greatness and the ugliness of America. When the words love and hate grasped my mind, it automatically struck me with the words Cebu and Davao, since these are the two cities that I’ve been journeying. Although the combination Cebu and Davao has nothing to do with the opposite words love and hate. They’re just two words that gave me an idea to blog about two great cities in the Philippines.

From then on I began to make friends on the blogosphere like Leylander of mycebuphotoblog.wordpress.com, blog icon Blogie Robillo of angdabawenyo.com, super blogger idol Jehzeel of jehzlauconcepts.com, seasoned blogger Mark Aethen Agana of aethen.com, true-blue Cebuana blogger Agnes Jimenez ofEmpressofdrac.com, Bofill Bernardes of angmaniniyot.co.cc. and Jon ofhalojin.blogspot.com. I’m still trying to get more of these intellectual and very creative human beings in the blogosphere. Thanks to you guys! 😉
While Cebu and Davao is more of my adventure in these two great cities–my euphoria, the hazards, and sentiments–it provides travel tips, sights, news, events, and food for travelers in Cebu and Davao. Sometimes I post some cool stuffs about sports, movies, games, gadgets, blogging and SEO. So if you’re seeking for new horizons and new beginnings, then you have come to the right site. This is my journey to two great worlds.

So from now on, this blog will not only be about my personal goings-on but it will also be about the goings on in the Philippines, whether based on my experience or news from main sources.
