Reasons Why You Should Re-Trek


Just last weekend, the Negros trilogy was finally complete when we experienced the leech-infested forest ascent to Tinagong Dagat. There are 3 popular mountains in Negros Island: Canlaon, Cuernos De Negros or Talinis and Mandalagan or Tinagong Dagat that are trekking must climbs. While writing the adventure in Mt. Mandalagan, I realized that 2 of… Continue reading Reasons Why You Should Re-Trek

The Leechy Trek to Tinagong Dagat in Mt. Mandalagan, Negros Occidental Day 1/2


Right after finishing the fees, we got ready to go. Excitement were evident as we almost forgot to pray and do a warm-up. Good thing someone brought it up. Since there was no space on the road, we decided to just pray and do a warm-up as soon as we find a spot. The trek… Continue reading The Leechy Trek to Tinagong Dagat in Mt.

So What Do You Think is The Story of How I Ended My Hiatus? LEECH, no pre-climbs and the threat of menstrual cramps were 3 of my major concerns in trekking Mt. Mandalagan. Yet despite the reservations, my will is bigger than my fears. We already missed Mandalagan in 2013 because I was on a… Continue reading The Leechy Trek to Tinagong Dagat in Mt.

H(e)aven in Hagnaya, Cebu


I've lived in Cebu all my life and have once aimed to visit each municipalities and cities and enjoy what they have to offer. Been to quite a handful but not in the north. If I were to choose, south is always the place to go. Yet last holy week for 3 days starting the… Continue reading H(e)aven in Hagnaya, Cebu

Best Day Trek Ever @ Bocaue Peak via 5 Towers


The day after our eventful day trek to Bocaue was an awesome Sunday - the last weekend of January. The husband spoiled the Miga by giving in to her cravings of green banana and salted fish. My, my...yumminess and movie is love. Everything is perfect until she moves her legs. Uh-oh!  The pains which were… Continue reading Best Day Trek Ever @ Bocaue Peak via 5 Towers

Summit to Sea Adventure in Biliran, Eastern Visayas (Day 3) – The Sambawan Paradise


This is the last post of the Tres Marias series but I'm planning to post some realizations and other tips blog soon. Hang in there friends. Hope you had fun reading as much as I had fun writing while re-visiting the lovely memories that we had on this adventure. The husband and I would be on a hiatus this July and August as we will be preparing for our 11-day trip to Southeast Asia come August 20-September 1. We were quite excited as that trip would be our 2nd trip abroad following our Anniversary trip in Hong Kong & Macau last March. Wish us luck friends!!! Till the next post!

Summit to Sea Adventure in Biliran, Eastern Visayas (Day 2) – Part 2 – Descent and Ulan-Ulan Falls


We left the camp in a hurry at 12 PM. 2 hours late for our target. As I was walking away focusing on catching up with the others, I hear Tin shrieked. She was bitten by bees. I asked if she was good, she answered that it was just minor. John who walked behind her was… Continue reading Summit to Sea Adventure in Biliran, Eastern Visayas (Day 2) – Part 2 – Descent and Ulan-Ulan Falls

Summit to Sea Adventure in Biliran, Eastern Visayas (Day 2) – Part 1 – Ascent to Tres Marias Peak 3


After 15 minutes of walking, I caught up with the others. After seeing Cods, I asked him if he can still see Pong. He answered that Ryan and Pong were still busy taking pictures so he went ahead. That irk me somehow so I asked the group to stop. We waited for a while and then everyone got impatient. I was thinking of the worst. After a while Rocco went back to look for Pong and Ryan. The group was divided. We were already running out of time. Then the husband mentioned that he had a GPS tracker and with that he can lead the group back to camp. I was hesitant to let him go but I had no choice. I didn't want to leave without Ryan and Pong too. It was a hard choice. Analyn decided to stay too.
