Apo Day 4: Playing with Kidapawan River


  The beauty of the smoking lake greeted us the next day. It would have been fun to have played with it longer but the schedule won't allow it. Compared to the previous climbs, Apo's last day trail was the most rigorous. Left the camp around 7 AM, an eternal descent followed.     It was… Continue reading Apo Day 4: Playing with Kidapawan River

Prenup Photo Shoot on the Philippines Highest Mountain


To be promised forever on top of Apo crossed my mind but didn't linger.  There's so much to do in the peak and proposing is not on the list. But sans engagement, it didn't stop the boyfie and I to enjoy a free prenup session. Yay! Here are some of my favorites!!!

Apo Day 2: Sunrise and Sunset in 2 Different Peaks


The beauty of Apo encompasses no other. I realized it on the 2nd day while going through an uphill battle towards a seemingly endless mounds of white rocks popularly known as "The Boulders".

Apo Day 1: Overnight At Tinikaran Camp


Last year's Pulag via Akiki really changed my over-all disposition towards every climb. Nothing is easy in the mountains. And despite my preparations, I still feel uneasy and inadequate so when the group brought up porters, despite wanting to own all the glory in conquering mountains, I agreed. But right after our team's grocery, I… Continue reading Apo Day 1: Overnight At Tinikaran Camp

Apo in 4 Days & 3 Nights Via Kapatagan – Kidapawan Trail


It was everything but a blissful memory, that exceeds far beyond expectation. Apo Climb was my 4th but the greatest of them all. The fears and doubts that loomed over months before has truly become my biggest support. If not for those doubts, Apo would have quickly become a Pulag experience. Knowing that a few… Continue reading Apo in 4 Days & 3 Nights Via Kapatagan – Kidapawan Trail
