Summer in the Philippines is a wonderful time not just for beach but for mountain climbing. Last weekend (Apr 23-24), we conquered was Mt. Hugom in San Juan, Batangas. The view at the summit was so beautiful during the day and dramatic at night!
Literally. At Mt. Ulap, the clouds are within reach hence the name. We conquered the mountain last April 2-3 together with our original hiker buddies. You gotta love the trail with all the pine trees around! At the summit, I was surprised there was a mini-store where you can buy snacks (biscuits, chocolates, juice) and what’s more? COLD Gatorade! Yes, nothing beats a cold drink after a looong hike!
I’ve heard El Nido was extemely beautiful due to white beaches and virgin attractions. I’ve heard right but there are just so much more at this place!
Back in June, I went to Singapore with my teammate Jossie to attend Echelon Asia Summit 2015. On our last day, we had our lunch at Lenas in Paya Lebar Square before we head straight to the airport. It gave a homey feels even though if was located at the center of the mall. And they serve big!
I was so happy when I found out we’re going mountain climbing again! This time its in Mt. Tibig, Batangas. The climb itself was a bit short but was crazy steep! First few minutes my sweat were already dripping with the extra effort in carrying myself and my backpack through long over 50 degrees slopes. When we arrived the summit, 360 beautiful view! (Forgot to take pictures lol)
My favourite part of our Coron trip has to be the island hopping with our very wacky tour guides! Coron is located separately from the Palawan mainland. They boast of their pristine white beaches and beautiful underwater sights (corals and fishes). We arrived there late afternoon and stayed at a gueshouse 5mins away from town proper. While looking for a place to eat and buy midnight snacks, we got to interact with the locals. We found out their local dialect is Cuyonon but most of them speak tagalog and many of them understand Bisaya (like me!). Coron, Palawan: The Ultimate…
