Hanging out at Sir Nicky's tree house before the climb
At the hanging bridge
Baka, baka yun?
Take five! Resting...
After about an hour of trekking in the heat of the sun, we finally came face to face with Mt. Talamitam. Gorgeous, noh?
The climb going up was not that easy, I tell you. We had to take very high steps, our knees were already kissing the ground.
We got to the summit just in time for the breathtaking sunset. Now, this is one of the things I love about climbing, I always get a different view of the sky.
Picture taking at the summit, the next morning
The very excruciating descent. I know I'm smiling in this picture but deep inside, I was tired and suffering from a hang-over. I held on to the cogon grasses beside me for dear life all the way down. Very, very steep descent but very much worth it. Check out the view behind me!
3 friends and I took a refreshing dip in this river before heading back to Sir Nicky's house for lunch.
These served as our plates for lunch last Sunday. They're made of the stems/stalks of the banana tree. The locals of Brgy.Bayabasan prepared this for us. Ingenious, isn't it?
Till the next climb.

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
