Dipaculao Beach and Baler

IMG_4751

Baler is one place I wanted to tick off my bucket list. When I feel like I just want to relax and chill, like nakaka-high na chill-medyo bukas isang mata-walwal vibe kind of chill, lagi ko sinasabi, parang ang sarap mag-Baler! LOL

Known as the heart of the Philippines and a place very dear to me ❤ (harot ko po). A total of almost 8 hours of land and boat travel. An exhausting trip but worth it. No question asked why it was names as the Little Gem of the Southwestern Tagalog

South Cebu

OMG, senior moments here, wait, Uhm. Shet! I can’t remember how I got the tickets to Cebu 😦 Oh okay, I remember now. ZE BFF booked a ticket for me along with the officemate friends to Cebu for only P1000 pesos (2 way ticket) oh diba, hindi na masama. Haha
SPOILER UPDATE: For some motherfudging reason, our pictures from this trip uploaded on Google Drive went missing in action. I don’t have raw copy of the pictures. I don’t know where the F they went. Please forgive me for I can only do more. I’m uploading a screenshot of my IG feed – poor me and blessed me.

Mt. Makiling Traverse (Sto.Tomas-Los Baños)

IMG_2846“Hindi mo na tinigilan ang pag-akyat!” Yes, I know. I got so addicted. I don’t know. It’s probably because I wanted to try myself on a different type of outdoor activity.

I was warned that I need to protect myself from the friendly limatiks or blood leeches. They are everywhere Mt. Makiling and I am not excited to see them.

I was told that the trail was hard and it’s going to be a very tough climb. I said “That’s fine, I’m IN!” Before the climb, I had to prepare myself by running 10K 2-3 times a week. Parusa sya but it’s worth it (Di lang pangpapayat, pang-Akyat pa :p)

A friend asked me if it’s alright that I will be the only girl in the group. Kinda hesitant at first, but I trust my friend, so I said okay, no problem with me. I only knew two guys among the group (the other guy is my boyfriend now :p) I am not a mountaineer, so it was really awkward meeting these guys who have conquered and more of a pro when it comes to climbing mountains. Pero, go with the flow lang ako.

I never thought I will love trekking mountains as much as I love swimming at the beach. It’s been a while since I’ve tried this kind of activity. Thanks to one of my friend for re-introducing this to me. I finally said YES after his few attempts of asking If I wanna join him with one of his climb.
