    Whacky Notes: Getting to Kalanggaman Island

Whacky Turn-off: Travelling is undoubtedly fun but we should always be sensitive in conserving and preserving the environment. As I was strolling around the island, I see garbage squattered almost everywhere. Tourists must've dispatched their plastics irresponsibly. This stained the whole idea of isolation.
Whacky thoughts:
If given the chance, I would've preferred to stay overnight in the island. Too bad we were not able to prepare for it. My opinion? Best time to go would be early summer [early Feb or Mar] to avoid the crowd.
