During the crucial times in our lives, we are forced not to rely to others to overcome our struggles and fears. This is where we must seek the strength of our inner power. You just need to believe it.
Our rock climbing in Dupag Rock Formation is one of the most exhilarating experiences I did as a casual trekker and a middle-age mom. The challenges I did in Masungi Georeserve in Tanay and previous hikes lessened my fear of heights and eventually I gained more strength and courage to do any kind of activities now. To which I owe it all to God.

It’s summer, time to beat the summer heat! But instead of going to the beach, Lhen Pelenio, my favorite trek buddy and yours truly are up for another exciting adventure. We will go spelunking in Lussok Cave, rock climbing in Dupag Rock Formation and sightseeing to Manacota and Underground Cave. All this is through the organizer Mayee Cavas which Lhen found on Facebook. Again, we are joiners and we will be mingling with another set of friends.
Summer is fast approaching and before I lay on the beach and bask in the sunlight, I want to start this year with a climb in Mt. 387 which is popularly known as the “Chocolate Hills of the North”. It is ringed by rolling hills and green valleys making it one of the wonderful hiking destinations in the country. I joined the group of Tahak Mountaineer headed by Mar Monge for P750 with my favorite trek buddy, the courageous and adventurous Lhen Pelenio.

“I stood agape with wonder as I watched the fragmenting sandbar. I just couldn’t contain my fascination of the entire view. I thought I was only dreaming.”
I’ve read about Manjuyod Sandbar in 2011 and was captivated seeing its picture-perfect view of the glistening crystal clear waters, the sandbar and the huts on stilts. From that moment I was itching to go there so I considered it saving in my bucket list.
I wish we could go back here with the whole family and we will stay in this lovely hut looming above the crystal clear water
Coming from an informative and exciting visit from Cloud Forest in Gardens by the Bay, I set off to the next cooled conservatory, the Flower Dome which will give me another dose of learning and feast of wonder to my eyes.
