Sunrise in Mt. Pulag

March 20, second day in Mt. Pulag in Benguet; we woke up at 3am and start trekking at around 4am to catch the sunrise at the summit of the mountain. Supposedly we have to wake up at 2:30 but since some we're drunk we’re not able to follow the IT. We all packed our things and get ready to assault the summit, we all rush to catch the sunrise and enjoy the scenic view. It was so cold but still we manage to reach the summit before the sun goes up…

Here are some of my pictures taken at the summit...

I just hope you can see our faces, with me is my buddy, Ate Janice..

This is actually a group pic, kaso naputol, phone lang kc gamit eh..anyways more pictures will be posted in my Friendster and Multiply account, so wait for it...

CamelBak Hydration

This is a CamelBak hydration pack which was given to me by one of OFWGuide’s forumer, scout, how thoughtful..hehehe..I’ve used it once in my climb at Mt. Gulugod Baboy. It can carries 3 liters of water, which is just enough for my water load..

This is my North Face shoes which I bought two years ago, from my 13th month bonus…I’ve used it few times lang, di na rin kc ako madalas umakyat eh.

The Video that brightens up my day

My officemate asked me if I know the song “Ken Lee,” I thought the song was kinda reggae since he knows that I often listen to reggae. I don’t know the song so I honestly said “no.” He told me to watch the video so I did!

At first I don’t see something funny with it since the one singing is a Bulgarian so I thought that the lyrics was translated to their lingo but I was wrong. I guess you should watch it yourself and see what I mean…

Maybe some of you have watched it, sabi kc ni Ivy luma na daw to. But still I want to share it with you.

Got a new TNF bag

I’m sorry to say but I’m no longer part of the Team Conquer, my boyfriend just bought a new North Face bag for me... it’s a Big Shot model, which was his personal choice, contradict to which I really want, Mentor, but it’s ok the thought was still there. Actually, it’s awkward pa nga eh, Jebong do not wants me going out of town, like climbing, without him but he bought me a bag di ba!!

So now, I’m welcoming myself to Team North Face..hahaha..welcome Therre..but I will miss my old Conquer baggie, it’s color green pa naman. My old bag served me for more or less three years but I have to say goodbye, kc nasa kapatid ko na sya, I know it’s in good hands naman coz I know Garra knows how to take care of climbing equipments properly since he do climbed too…

To my old teammates, you know who you are…adios..hahaha..

I'm a Jam Breakfast Break winner!

Yeap, I join the raffle last week, March 3 and just yesterday, a crew from Jam 88.3 fm named Randy called me up in our office, actually he was calling several times but he wasn't find me coz I haven’t arrive yet. So going back, Randy told me that I won the raffle in Jam Breakfast Break and they will be here in our office tomorrow, so that’s today March 6.

They arrive at around 10 here and they have brought as a Jollibee breakfast meals. It’s DJ Migs who visit us, including two other staffs (aahhhh sorry guys, I can’t remember your names, I was overwhelmed with the foods..hahaha)

So what do you expect, foods are there so we started eating… It was really timely coz it’s my officemate’s birthday, Renz. While eating they informed us that they have to go…so we said goodbye..and the rest is eating time…

You might be asking what Jam Breakfast Break is about. Jam Breakfast Break is a raffle of Jam 88.3 fm for legitimate employee of a company or corporation. If you won the raffle you and your officemates will have a breakfast treat from Jam 88.3.

So what are you waiting for, visit their website at and give yourself and your officemates a breakfast treat.

I was there!

These are the mountains I have conquered accordingly:

Mt. Banahaw - Laguna
Daraitan – Tanay Rizal
Mt. Sembrano – Pililia Rizal
Mt. Maculot – Cuenca Batangas
Mt. Romelo – Famy Laguna
Mt. Cristobal – Laguna
Mt. Arayat – Pampanga
Mt. Makiling – Laguna
Tarak Ridge – Bataan

Mt. Gulugod Baboy – Mabini Batangas

I have also experienced spelunking in Donya Remedios Trinidad in Bulacan.

Since I started working I wasn’t able to climb, although the group still climbs but I choose not to join since they climb the same mountain so I’m not interested anymore. What I want is something new, since I’ve there already. Like Mt. Sembrano and Mt. Romelo, I’ve climb this thrice or more, twice in Mt. Arayat and Mt. Makiling.

Mt. Sembrano

View from Mt. Sembrano

I've been here for quite some time but still I can’t remember which is the right trail..hahaha..I can’t remember which trail I should take to reach Manggahan…huh! My first climb here is really horrible, I discover that I have a very sensitive stomach hahaha.. I guess you already knew it, yes I’d suffer from LBM during my training climb here. Malas pa kc we’re trying to traverse going down, but unfortunately we’re not able to do so! My God we’re lost…so we have no choice to go back the trail…Eeerrggg…Badtrip talaga!!
