As that old folk song goes. And I have to tell you, it's sooo true. My back is aching more than ever and I just had a massage last Thursday!
I'm a little tamad to write about it in detail but all in all, it was a fun weekend. One of the things I love about climbing are the people (we didn't really climb this weekend, though). I only knew 3 people when we arrived at the bus terminal but 15 minutes later, everyone became a friend.(There were about 20 of us)
And we ate! sooooo much! And for the first time, I tried ginataang santol. It's basically shredded (into tiny bits) santol cooked in coconut milk with some shrimp. It was sooooo good that I bought some shredded santol and tonight, my sisters and I will have it for dinner. Hehehe!
I also got a little tipsy Saturday night and didn't realize it until I woke up with a headache Sunday morning. Anyway, here are some of the pictures:(click to enlarge)
With some of the mountaineers
Live strong. I hope you do.
I am soooo enthralled by this picture I took at around 4pm. Beautiful, right?
At the first planting site
This town needs more trees by the river so that when it rains, the trees can absorb the water to prevent it from going up the villager's homes.
Nung kami'y nababato, kami'y nagbabato. Hehehe! Had a hard time figuring out how to make the rocks stand.
Mystical. When I look at this picture, I feel like there's a fairy hiding in there somewhere.
I have some more pictures I want to post but I'm out of time. Maybe later today. Have a good week, everyone!

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
