The weekend before this trip, I met up with my highschool friends in Manila for a supposed-to-be-farewell-dinner-for-me-but-Fern-ended-up-paying-for-it get-together. Since Fern didn’t make it to our TalamitamBatulao twin hike before, we thought of having another backpack trip somewhere in Luzon, and just then Jillian mentioned about her officemates’ plan to go to Baler. We wanted to explore Baler too, so immediately that night, I came up with a rough itinerary. After sending the itinerary the following day, Jill informed us that we could tag along with her officemates, since that group could still accommodate around 3-4 persons. And so we’re in it! :)

As mentioned in my previous post, we had our super late lunch before heading on to our next hike—Mt. Batulao! Rested for a while, bought some food (i.e., rice, canned goods) to keep us full while camping at one of the peaks of Batulao. After resting, we took a trike bound for the jumpoff point for Mt. Batulao trekking.

BAGUIO: Three Summertimes in the City of Pines!

One of my childhood dreams WAS to visit the famous Baguio City. I don’t know, but the place WAS overly commercialized that I really would want to see it for myself hehehe! Until one day, after my second busy season (that was June of 2007), my office batchmates planned for a trip to Baguio. I was not that close to them yet at that time, so I hesitated at first. But because I so wanted to see Baguio, I accepted the invitation the day before the trip—and invited also one of my closest friends in the office, so I won’t feel out-of-place hehehe! >>>READ FULL ARTICLE>>>

2010: All the way to Taal…

2010: All the way to Taal…
Sunud-sunod ang gala namin nung May 2010—just a week after the trip to Pagsanjan Falls, we headed again to the South! This time, na-tripan naming puntahan yung Taal Volcano in Batangas. We met at around 6am somewhere in Las Pinas, then we headed to Tagaytay (near Picnic Grove ) to meet with our tour guide—a cousin of another officemate. After a 2-hour drive, we arrived in Tagaytay and drove again all the way to Taal Lake.

Zambales 2 of 3: Pre-Halloween in Anawangin!

Zambales 2 of 3: Pre-Halloween in Anawangin!

Now here’s the second part of the Zambales weekend getaway! Anawangin finally! :D At the end of the Mt. Pundaquit trekking, we were welcomed by this sight!!!! Awesome! hehe :D When we reached the shores of Anawangin, it was already crowded with campers that we had a hard time finding a spot for our little “campsite” ehehe! Most of the campers came to Anawangin the day before (which was Saturday), so most of the good spots were already occupied. Buti na lang may mabait na manang (Manang Langga) na tumulong samin makahanap ng mapupwestuhan! :D
