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.

Summit to Sea Adventure in Biliran, Eastern Visayas (Day 1) – Overnight Camp in Tres Marias


After 15 minutes of walking from lunch site, Pong called out that our Ryan was nowhere. The group stopped and Ryan, the sweeper guide went to look for our Ryan. On a climb with every stops, I never put my bag away from my shoulders since because of its weight I would spend energy putting it back on. But I was so worried about the worst for our Ryan. The husband had to remind me to stay put. I realized that at that moment, the only thing I can do is pray. And I did. Thanks God that after a while, Pong announced that Ryan was found. When I saw him, the relief took away my want to nag. Haha!

Trekking Tips: Rice Planning


Probably the hardest part for me in a trekapade is meal planning. For years, I've always wanted to be able to estimate properly. More often estimating just how much rice we need to bring is a headache. So today, I took my way out of my already jampacked sked to do what I have always… Continue reading Trekking Tips: Rice Planning

No trek is ever the same even if you've done it many times. This was my 3rd trek in Mt. Lanaya. Yet each and every time is a different experience. And if I were to pick the best, nah, I'll pass. Last Saturday, June 11-12 is as good as the first (2013 via Legazpi - Lumpan)… Continue reading A Peak & A Hot Spring in One Adventure
