The coconut tree is a member of the palm tree family and the only living species of the genus Cocos. The term "coconut" can refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which botanically is a drupe, not a nut. (friendly wiki says)
While the coconut is a mainstay in the diet of nearly one-third of the planet, it's considered exotic in the Western world. https://www.google.com/amp/s/foodfacts.mercola.com/amp/coconut.html
Its more than a year since the last time i visited Mt. Daraitan. And this spot is new to me. A heart shape nest in front of the horse-shoe shaped river encircling around the mountain that made this spot mesmerizing during sunrise. Mt. Daraitan served as a hike suitable for beginners but first time hikers should be aware of the continuous ascend and steep descends that made this hike tougher than imagined. Nevertheless, those catching breathes were compensated with memorable experiences and laughs by those people you are hiking with. And this is what the essence of the hike made of.
"You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in." - Mandy Hale

A shot from above at Bantigue Cove on Malapascua island in the Philippines which measures only 2.5 by 1 km. The special thing about this beach is that there is a luxury resort located which is abandoned after typhoon Yolanda hit this island in 2013. The beds, rooms, kitchen, and so on can still be seen. A few rooms were even occupied by locals living in it.
The owner just left everything and never came back. Sometimes shit happens but life goes on ✨

Ladies can't wear bikinis in here or sleeveless tops. You can wear shorts but it should be knee level. Its not about trying to be conservative but respecting the culture. Either way you'll still be able to enjoy this paradise! Thank you to the tourism staff, to police officers of Sulu for keeping us safe (yung kami pa yung nang-iwan sa kanila 🤣), OIC Mayor of Parang, Sulu and to the Tausug people for all the warm welcome. And I must say, its definitely safe in Sulu! 💯 Magsukul! 💙 #NoFilterParaSolid#Sulu#Mindanao#MindTheNow#Lakwatshelah

The universe isolates you so you can find your soul’s purpose. It may seem like you’ve lost friendships and relationships, but finding your path, passion, and purpose in life is worth more. For where your soul is, there you will find your treasure.
