Let’s Go to Casino, Not To Play Poker,  But To Climb It

 

 

I’ve been living here in Cebu for about ten years now, but I have not realized one of my strongest desires. You may laugh at this revelation for this wish of mine is just a simple matter to some. . I have already summited a number of mountains here in Cebu but I haven’t still made it on the top of the highest peaks here in the Queen City of the South. Yes, I haven’t climbed Osmeña Peak. HAHAHA! Now I’m laughing because this post is not even about Osmeña Peak. You may think I’m off-tangent, but I’m not, for the subject of this post stands on the same pinnacles as Osmeña Peak.

I’m sharing this now because I have partly stepped foot on the highest highlands here in the province of Cebu, although I have not jaunted up that famous Osmeña Peak. At least, my strongest desire has been partially fulfilled when I reached Casino Peak.

PART ONE : What it is Like to Try Major Climb for the First Time

 

I just had my first ever major climb on the highest highland of Eastern Visayas, the Alto Peak also known as Mt. Aminduen. But before reaching Mt. Alto we also summitted its neighbor, Mt.

Here’s my VLOG on how my friends and I climbed Lake Janagdan. Spoiler alert, something happened to me at 7:02. Check this one out so that a similar incident will not happen to you in case you would want to try climbing there as well.😂😂

You may have seen videos and pictures of this island being shared a number of times on social media accounts.

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

Tinubdan Falls : Where Those “Negative Things” Abound When You Chase Waterfalls

 

The emotional stress I’ve garnered lately made me loss my sanity. Some friends leave without even saying goodbye. Conflicts and changes occur. Well, they happen many times, yeah, sort of permanent already. Everything is just becoming depressing and disheartening plus the volume of work that is piling up. Time is getting limited and the demand for completion is so high. UGH! If only I could prolong time I would be accomplishing much, huhu!Read More »

The Mountains of Danao, Bohol : Your Easy Ticket to Witness Sea Of Clouds, Camping and Side Tours That You Probably Don’t Know

Quarter and One of Existence: My Unusual Way of Celebrating My Birthday , Hint: It Entails Fears, Dirts, and Darkness

 

Birthdays are special days for most of us. Some of us may celebrate an additional year of existence by having a get-together party with loved ones; others may just treat or spoil themselves with sweet things of indulgences. I usually celebrate my birthday in a simple way with family and friends and sometimes I buy stuff as a memorabilia of gratitude for another year has been given to me to live my life again in this complex yet wonderful world.

Sirao Peak ( Mt. Kan-Irag) : Hiking Up the Famous Peak of The Metro with A Glimpse of Falls and Flowers

The Tale Between Falling in Love and Letting Go

 

One lonely day I was wandering under the vast cerulean skies with the effulgent sun giving me an unusual radiance. With that I knew that this day would be extraordinary. And as I continued my musings and wanders,  I was also looking at the sea of faces that have passed by me, curious about their own stories and dreams. Some faces were drowned by my own oblivionRead More »

Telling 15 Beautiful Things Along the Journey

 

Come on, come on, let’s leave… Let’s go to the place that is beyond the ordinary and let’s search for the unusual. Let’s seek adventures, let’s leave for awhile this mundane life. Chanting this melody and harmonizing  positive vibes,  we would rather be called hippie than boring. We know life is unexciting without a little risk. We are the people of the “outside”.

It’s getting late.
Come on.
Come on.
We’ve got to leave. We’ve got to leave….
