At around 430am last Saturday, I found myself on a bus to Batangas for a friendship climb organized by the Batangas Backpackers in Bato-bato peak in Lobo, Batangas (Ang layo pala ng Lobo! Grabe!). Around 70-75 mountaineers from different groups gathered together to celebrate Baba's (BAtangas BAckpackers) 6th anniversary.

We started our trek at around 10am and got to the campsite just before 5pm. No, we didn't trek for 7 was soooo hot last Saturday that we would stop to rest every few minutes. The trail wasn't difficult but the heat was really draining our energy! We probably hiked for about 4 hours.

Sunday morning, we left camp at 8, went through another mountain (yeah, another mountain! what an itenerary!) to get to a small waterfall whose cool waters was very much worth it!

After the waterfall, we hiked for about 45 minutes more then a jeepney brought us to Submarine Resort for some Beach fun! Perfect way to end the climb, huh?

Pictures from my very eventful weekened! (Click on the images for a bigger view)

Where are we going, again? Oh you wanna play, "Bato, bato, PICK"? Aahh, Bato (2x) PEAK! Hehe! You'll find this near the campsite.

It was a beautiful day...and a very hot one as well!

Headband twins!!!

Just some of the views while trekking

Resting after stopping to eat lunch

I. am. so. tired. This is not funny anymore.

Hey Donkeeeeyyy, ARE WE THERE YET? Huh? Are we there yet? Hehe! (ala-Shrek 2)

BJ time! (Buko Juice) My group and I stopped to rest and these 2 locals passed by and since there were a few coconut trees beside us, we asked the men if they could get some buko for us and we would just pay them. They said, "Hindi pwede magbayad. Pwede namin ibigay." Nice, noh? So that's what they did! I finished 3 coconuts, I think! Haha! We all chipped in some money to give these guys but they refused and left us. Our friend had to run after them just so they would accept our little payment.

Someone's getting a little too attached to my foot. That's amorseco for you!

And the end justifies the means. Taken from the peak. What a sight, huh?

Probably the only moment in the climb where everyone brings their cameras/digicams/camphones out all at the same time! Haha! You can't really question why, right?

*rubs eyes* Is this a dream? A natural swimming hole with half-naked men? *comes closer* Aayyy, hindi sila cute! Hahahaha! This was the little waterfall we climbed another mountain for the next day. Water was really cooolldd! Sarap!




Pretty, pretty tree stretching its branches out to the sky

What the heck are they, you say? I saw these dried corn ears hanging infront of a local's house yesterday. What they're for? Beats me.

The drink I've grown to love...a shot of gin and mango juice as chaser! Yumminess!

I cannot get over how adorable this baby girl is. I was at her mom's store buying some cookies and I saw her! So I took a picture! Look at the curious look on her face! Love it! She is now my desktop's wallpaper. So pretty!

That's about it! By the way, if you guys see me limping, please don't laugh. Haha! My body is in sooo much pain right now. Going up and down the stairs is torture and getting dressed takes forever! Huhuhuhu!

Have a productive week ahead, everyone! And hope you guys did something worthwhile during the long weekend!

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.
