Mt Pulag (Kabayan, Benguet): A Class Exercise on Awareness

A Postcard - Perfect SideTrip
Mt. Pulag, Kabayan, Benguet
February 2012

Title:  A Class Exercise on Awareness 

(This is a recount of my first encounter with the sea of clouds and surreal slopes that Mt. Pulag has become synonymous with.
The cringe, exhaustion, extreme heat, thin air, dropping temp, breathtaking sunrise and soap-opera worthy experience
are the 
bits and pieces of memories I have with this mountain.) 

Breathe, in this playground fit for the gods
Roam, beyond the edges of heavenly facade
the fleeting seconds reveals a sea of clouds
where voyage scrolls in scenic mystery avowed

(waiting as the sun rises majestically from the sea of 
morning clouds on the summit of Mt. Pulag)

Roaming Romblon: Sailing Away For Now

Roaming Romblon – The Heart of the Philippines 

March 27-31, 2013

(This is a personal travelogue of our five-day intrepid journey to heart of the Philippines… 
Long coastlines, isolated white-sand beaches, lonely lighthouse and rustic countryside hospitality…)

Sailing Away For Now


 Like a faraway thought, I too shall fly
The endless sky is my limit, the vast sea my guide
for there in the horizon I shall sigh
in this strange foreign land, emotions can run astride
(the vanishing sun  as seen at the view deck of MV Reina Del Rosario)

It’s was Holy Week again, the height of summer escapades for people wanting to flee the hustle and bustle of city life. For years now, I always find myself tagging along a backpacking adventure to some off-beat, almost unknown and overlooked destination in my country.
