*Like always, please click on the images to get a larger view

Despite the really horrible weather, i went climbing again this weekend. I've discovered that mountain climbing makes me forget things that bother me and it diverts my attention to the (as cliche as this may sound), the beauty of nature. Besides, the city has already become too intoxicating for me. And I felt really icky last week because I ate too much. I desperately needed to burn some much needed fat. Needed to do something healthy. Hehe!

Meeting place was at 2pm, in Chowking Baclaran. Got there at 3. Waited and waited for a couple of girls to arrive. Guess what time we left Manila? 530pm! Add to that the traffic in Coastal Road and Cavite...well, Night Trek here we come! Got to the magnetic field at around 9pm. Because it was raining really hard, we decided to just camp at the Base 1 of Pico de Loro. Going through with the climb at that time of the night and in that type of weather was well....just pushing it.

The campsite

The rain never stopped. After lunch the next day, we got ready for our climb to Pico De Loro.

I had to take this picture of Stanley in his raincoat. He was innocently sitting on the ground when this was taken. Of course, we had to have our picture taken with him as well. Haha!

I bumped into someone eating some grass during the trek. Kung may seabiscuit, meron akong mountainbiscuit! Hehe!

Yes, a river!!! Aside from the fact that its beautiful, its also a great place for washing dirty hands and mud-laden shoes.

Lookie, grass as tall as me!!!

I particularly loved this part of the trek. The landscape made me feel like I was in Lord of the Rings. I'm sorry, but this picture doesn't give it justice.

The trek going up took us 2 and a half excruciating hours. I really wanted to give up during the latter part of the climb. The trail was jagged, rocky and thanks to the strong rain, absolutely muddy. We weren't able to go to the summit because the weather didn't permit us to. However,we did stay in a nice piece of land a few short minutes away from the peak of Pico De Loro.

The coldest I've ever, ever felt.

So blow me. The air was uber cold and windy that the air was filling up every available crevice in my body. After seeing this picture, i promised myself that I will never get THAT fat. Hehe!

With my girlfriends and people from Mesau

That's about it!

By the way, I have a creepy story.

On our way to the campsite Saturday night, I saw something/someone. I was walking on a trail which fit 1 person only. My friend was walking a few meters away from me and I just suddenly turned to my right and saw something white. I stared at it for a couple of seconds, got goose bumps, continued walking and told no one about it. I was thinking that it might just be something like a piece of cloth hanging off a tree, or maybe some plant but it was completely pitch black and the only thing I could see was the ground below me and the people I was with.

After dinner, everyone was talking and someone mentioned seeing a white lady. So i told everyone that I didn't see a lady, just something white. A couple of them asked me where I saw it/her and they saw her too, but someone saw her walking/floating fast!

Hmmm...okay, now I'm creeped out na while writing this. Yun lang! Have a good week everyone!

about moi

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for dinner.
