Location: Ternate, Cavite Date: July 16 to 17 2011 Present: Kaiz and Jie, Team Evercrest, Bob and Totz Team Evercrest’s family is growing bigger! And this time, we tried a more challenging mountain.
Recently, I learned of this new insane activity, which doesn’t require anything but a crazy mind. Readers, let me present my newly-found addiction, PLANKING. Thanks to Mean from whom I’ve first seen plank photos. Planking is also known as the lying down game wherein one is expected to lay down with face touching the ground and with both hands, at a pointed direction, touching the sides of the body. And oh boy, I’ve seen so much crazy plank photos over the net.
Location: Coron, Palawan Date: June 28 2011 Present: Kaiz and Jie MNL to USU Rowjie and I were scheduled to fly at 12:00 noon so we still had ample time to finish packing our stuff since we went home right away after our night shift. This was the first time that we left this late. If you happened to have been reading my blog posts since I started the travelogue, you would know that I am not a fan of regular-amount airfares. I always wait for seat sales and promos because I cannot afford to pay for P4000 worth of tickets. With that being said, our trip to Busuanga via Cebu Pacific only costs us 100-plus with no check-in baggage. We brought Rowjie’s 45-liter backpack, my […]
Location: Rodriguez, Rizal Date: July 3 2011 Present: Kaiz, Jie, and HAKAMS So it is inappropriate to label my photo albums with Wawa Dam, San Rafael, Montalban, Rizal because Montalban has long been replaced by Rodriguez (1982). I stand corrected.
I am so lucky to have been chosen as one of the four winners of a round-trip plane tickets care of Cebu Pacific. Just like what I wrote, I am afraid of the sea water but I chose Siargao as my destination as I am fascinated by its world-renowned Cloud 9 waves. Dispatch Magazine, I can’t thank you enough. This is the first time I’ve ever won a travel-related contest.
Location: San Pablo, Laguna Date: June 4 to 5 2011 Present: Kaiz, Bien, Tibog, Migs, Kidlat, and other Mountaineering Friends When Agot was still carrying her yet-to-be-born son, she wanted to name him Kidlat as she was so fascinated with Norsemen’s god of thunder, Thor, son of Odin and carrier of Mjolnir. She couldn’t let go of the idea of a topless Thor and his bikini line. Everything really started during one of June 2007’s very humid days. HAKAMS organized an open climb where most of the participants were members of the SPI Mountaineering Society (SPIMC). The objective of the activity was to scale the alluring Mount Balingkilat or Mount Pointed Peak as what one of the commonly used maps labels it. The climb wasn’t easy, I […]
Alright, I am not alone in peeving about Coron’s not-so-cheap and unorganized collection of entrance fees to each of its islands/lakes/beaches. I have read a lot of complaints about it. Apparently, good thing for future travelers, a resolution created by Coron’s LGU on collective fee for all destinations is an ongoing talk among its town officials. But for now, tourists still need to pay the following entrance fees (as of May 2011):
My hatred for packaged tour is priceless. It all began when, in my POV, we were scammed by a travel agency after our first trip to Coron, Palawan. We were forced to pay a whopping P10,400 for a 4D3N trip. Too much, eh? Sure, unplanned trips are far more exciting than wasting your time prepping up and creating itineraries. Downside is, you don’t get to know stuff that could be vital and helpful to your trip. Here are some tips on paying less but travelling more. 1. The Fare Sale Wait Patience is a real virtue. Would you believe that I only paid P236.00 for a roundtrip plane ticket off to Palawan? It is because I waited.
I was just planning to post the itinerary I made (whew!) for our second visit in Coron next month, but a great news can’t wait. ☺
