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

3 Days in Vang Vieng, Laos (Day 7-9/11)


The plan was to leave Vientiane at 6 AM but we found a 9:30 AM bus schedule. We welcomed the change since we've been waking very early the passing days. We woke up a little late than usual and have our breakfast at the Karenderia near Singsanti's. By 9:00 AM, we were already in front… Continue reading 3 Days in Vang Vieng, Laos (Day 7-9/11)

Indochina Backpacking Itinerary + Expenses (Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand)


I wanted to do this post after I narrated the everyday adventure but the thought of knowing how poor have we become won't let me rest. Haha! I didn't even want to go out since we arrived on Thursday because of it. LOL But the husband was unusually restless. He went out on Friday and… Continue reading Indochina Backpacking Itinerary + Expenses (Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand)

Osmeña Peak is GREEN Once More!


Less crowded Opeak. Perfect hike weather. No-hassle travel. I think can attribute these serendipitous conditions to 2 things. First, there was a typhoon brewing in Luzon that weekend. And second, there's currently a moratorium for canyoneering activities, which is a large tourist draw. With these two combined, it might have repelled the usual weekend warriors away. This seems like a Schadenfreude moment, 2 unfortunate events led to my perfect weekend trek situation. hahaha

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!
