Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
Sulpicio Lines (Philippine Span Asia Carrier) and MV Princess of the Stars
Time flies when you're having fun but did you know that the 3rd year anniversary of the sinking of the MV Princess of the Stars falls on this day? What happened during the span of 3 years?
well, a couple of hundred people died on the tragedy, only a few survivors, not even the captain of the ill-fated ship.
case of reckless imprudence resulting to homicide filed against Sulpicio Lines by relatives of the victims still pending and unresolved (note, even cases of MV Doña Paz, about 20 years ago pending still at the Supreme Court)
Sulpicio Lines, last year, changed it's corporate name to Philippine Span Asia Corporation
Philippine Span Asia Carrier now reportedly handles freight and cargo only, no information yet on passenger ships, trip schedules, ferry fares, telephone contact numbers, even the official website.
