SECOND ATTEMPT AT MT.ULAP

Yup, will try to conquer it for the second time ‘coz the first one was kind of fail (haha). I’m with Marj, Ali, Mats, and others (sorry guys, I forgot your names) and it will be a long ride from Bulacan to Benguet, left at around 10 PM (March 18)  and arrived at Benguet at around 3:30AM (March 19), matapos magkaligaw ligaw papuntang jump-off. Good thing a guide (Jeka) was walking in those wee hours we’re able to ask for directions and offered her a ride since we’re going to the same place. We’re the first batch to arrive at the place, as per locals trek starts at 4-4:30 AM. Continue reading

SURVIVING MT.MACULOT

Together with my college friends (Ali and Meyeh) we planned to go to Maculot, but due to bad weather and body aches (signs of aging na ba ito?) last March 4 we didn’t push thru. Desperately wanted to climb muntik na kaming mapunta sa Mt.Sawi, Mt. Sembrano, Mt. Kayangkayangan, Mt. Tagapo, at lahat na ng maisip naming bundok but we just agreed to not leave for the weekend and have it rescheduled the following week – March 11.

Sunday midnight and we’re off to Batangas, matapos lumagpas sa pick-up points at magkanda ligaw ligaw papuntang jump-off. Thank you Waze for guiding us, maliligaw ka talaga considering na looban ang place and madilim pa. Jump-off is at the Mountaineer’s Store; foods are available and use of CRs. We opted to do the traverse upon registration, and then a guide was assigned to us – Jimboy. After registration we still need to drive a few minutes to start our trek. Continue reading

BOHOL ESCAPADE

It all started with just a normal conversation, “Tara punta tayong Bohol.” Then, there I was looking for a promo fare and impulsively booked a trip to Bohol for three (Me, Carla, and Ken). Since were on a budget we’re doing a DIY trip (as always); there’s a lot of things to do in Bohol but since we’re just staying for a short period of time we just did what we can to maximize our stay and here’s what we did on our Bohol trip.

TAGAYTAY 2014

Fudtriperz – that’s my highschool barkada’s name, I know hindi sya pag-it girls levels! (LOL) Eto yung jejemon phase namin. From the root word “food trip” modify the letters “oo” to “u” and add “erz” to make it more jeje (haha).

This trip is literally 10 years in the making. So, to make things special we decided to go on an out-town-trip to celebrate our decade long friendship. Off we go to Tagaytay for our weekend getaway, it was like highschool all over again. Yung feeling na fieldtrip kinabukasan, di ka makatulog sa excitement. Continue reading

HOLIDAY HIKE + ISLAND SIDE TRIP: MT. GULUGOD BABOY + FORTALEZ ISLAND

This is a long overdue post due to laziness, it’s been on my draft posts since December (Nagexplain talaga ako?haha).

I’ve been planning to go to Mt.Gulugod Baboy since July; 4 months in the making and 2 times na naudlot (haha); finally natuloy din. I’ve been curious about Mt.Gulugod Baboy (Pig’s Spine), tuwang tuwa ako sa pangalan nya that I searched  how to do a DIY trip (as usual, DIY forever!). Together with my college friend, her friend, her friend’s officemates, her sister, and her sister’s officemates off we go to Anilao, Batangas on a holiday (November 30 – Bonifacio Day).

ATTEMPTED TO HIKE MT.ULAP

It was raining hard on a Friday night up to Saturday morning but we still insisted to travel up north. We’re so impatient so off we to go to an adventure (haha). We (Carla, Ken, Ga, and I) took the DAU to Baguio route, it took us 6-7 hours of travel (gusto nyo yan ah,haha) while Marj and Kenny took the Cubao to Baguio route. Cold breeze with rain showers welcomed us to Baguio, but we’re not losing hope the sun will still shine tomorrow morning (sinong niloloko namin?haha). We had dinner at Green Pepper Ketchup Food Community; had some photo ops ‘coz we have the second floor all to ourselves. Umpisa palang picture na ng picture (all pictures used are not mine, phone camera is not cooperating). Good thing we found a place for the night for a reasonable price with accommodating owner at Gabriela Silang. Continue reading
