Alubihod Beach Nueva Valencia Guimaras

Our Travel Insider writes: "The last time I've been to Alubihod Beach in Nueva Valencia, Guimaras was probably about ten years ago. I've been here for several times already so I wasn't really excited to see the beach after all those years. However, the memories of how it looks are still fresh in my mind -- the beach is short, just a bit better than the ones we have in Iloilo but not half as good as Boracay."

Plush & Play is a social enterprise born in Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm in Brgy, Encanto, Angat, Bulacan.

Aside from putting a smile on the faces of the little ones, the production of Plush & Play provides a sustainable livelihood that allows kids to eat and go to school.

Behind the veggie-themed stuffed toys and finger puppets is Batang Bayani International, Inc. (BBI), a team of young and talented individuals founded by Frenchman Fabien Courteille.
