WARMNESS OF MT. BALAGBAG

Literally warm dahil summer na. Oo na! Summer na, please take it slow sa init mong dala. It was very hot and humid when we visited Mt. Balagbag. After all those hesitations because of the incident finally we’re (Me, Carla, Sol) able to push thru. Bahala na anong mangyari samin,haha. As expected it will be hot (Super hot! As in!) even though we travelled as early as we can. Heat wave ang sinuong naming!haha. Mt. Balagbag does not require a guide unless you want to traverse to the falls or go somewhere else.

DRIZZLES AT MAYSAWA CIRCUIT

Long weekend for April calls for another adventure (maka-adventure ako eh), time for another gala, another DIY trip, another set of people na mahihila sa lakad na ito. Initially it was Carla, Kim and I who would go for a hike. San tayo punta? Again, Mt. Balagbag crossed our minds but someone told Carla it’s not safe to go since we’re just a small group. So, we decided to go for Maysawa Circuit in Tanay, Rizal and this will be my first twin hike (push natin to bes!), days before our hike the weather is so unpredictable – bigla nalang uulan tapos titigil. Let’s just hope hindi bagyo ang sasalubong samin sa hike – may trauma na ako sa hike ng bumabagyo (haha). I invited my friends because the more the merrier; from 3 pax we became 9 pax for this trip. So, it’s Me, Carla, Kim, Marj, Kenny, Claire, Harvey, Malou, and Ghelo. Continue reading

NAGPATONG ROCK FORMATION INTERLUDE

Summer is fast approaching and we can already feel the heat – wala masyadong connect ang intro ko, gusto ko lang sabihin na malapit na ang summer season. Time for another adventure! Sakit lang talaga ng katawan ang hanap. Meyeh and I have been planning to go to the much talked Nagpatong Rock Formation. I first heard Nagpatong during our climb in Mt. Binacayan, our guide was telling that the view there is really nice. Then, it became a hit when it was featured in a movie. So, off to another DIY trip. Continue reading

PANGASINAN TO BAGUIO WEEKEND TRIP

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

MUDDY TRAIL OF MT. TAGAPO

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

BRAVING SUMMER HEAT AT MT. BINACAYAN

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
