Most people would have a gathering or throw a party for their birthday; but in my case I wanted to do a day hike. I’ve been thinking of doing this since last month and I thought of Mt. Balagbag in Rizal since it doesn’t require a guide. One day before my birthday I asked my college friend some details since she just hiked Mt. Balagbag late last year. Lo and behold she recommended Mt. Manalmon since there was a theft incident last new year in Balagbag. (haba ng intro ko,haha) In short, nagpanic ako ng very light dahil naplano ko na ang expenses sa Balagbag and immediately searched for expenses in Mt. Manalmon and directions on how to get there.

Since Mama told me to do an itinerary for our Manaoag – Baguio getaway I googled for a quick hike that we can do that’s just near Baguio and I saw Mt. Yangbew at Tawang La Trinidad Benguet. So, of course I dragged my younger brother for this hike, wala syang choice because walang allowance pag di ako sinamahan,haha. Continue reading


This year for Mama’s birthday she wanted to visit another church (last year we went to Padre Pio at Batangas) – so we decided to go to Manaoag at Pangasinan; wanted to maximize our trip she decided that we proceed to Baguio afterwards since it’s near Manaoag. The overnight stay went on a 2-night stay at Baguio. Not knowing that our planned dates will be declared special non-working days. Uh-oh! Almost all of the cheap accommodations at Baguio were fully booked two weeks prior our trip (mini heart attack na!). Luckily I found an affordable place thru Airbnb. Continue reading



This is actually on my list of to go to places since 2015; fast forward to 2017 and I can finally tick-off Art in Island in my list. My mom would be the easiest to convince especially if gagala kayo at magpipicture (haha), dragged our bunso to be our photographer and asked Marj if she wanted to join us. September 24 (Sunday) we then went to Art in Island, located at 175 15th Ave., Brgy. Socorro, Cubao, Quezon City, 1109 Metro Manila. Continue reading


It’s been three (3) months since my last hike and I really wanted to go for hike #20ClimbsBefore30. So, I looked for an easy climb – an easy one but I guess no mountain will ever be easy (haha). I’ve been eyeing Mt.Tagapo since it says that it has a difficulty of 2/9 (Easy Peasy! NOT!). So I started planning this “easy hike” and invited people to join me – lo and behold the supposed to be 12 pax became 6 pax. It was raining for the past few days thinking na baka hindi pa kami matuloy dahil ayoko na ulit maghike ng umuulan (ATTEMPTED TO HIKE MT.ULAP). The whole Saturday was gloomy and rain showers from time to time – to go or not to go? GO! Push natin yan bes! Continue reading


Another long weekend for the month of June – planned a hike para masulit ang long weekend. Off we go to Mt. Binacayan at Rodriguez, Rizal. Day hike lang at isa lang, di pa keri ng powers ang twin hike lalo na ang trilogy. Together with my highschool and college friend’s sister and friend we did a DIY hike (as always); Ida, Meyeh, Merose, and Agnes – Girl Power! haha. It is a budget friendly hike for less than Php 500 for the transpo, guide, and fees. This is probably the most fun and chill hike I’ve ever been, kahit na nakakasuka at nakakahilo na ang init ng panahon (haha). Continue reading
