Happy 2015 Beautiful People

Dear beautiful people, this is my first blog post of the year and it has something to do about my lakwatsero life during the time when I was on hiatus for so many days.  
To start with my a bit narrative story from 2014 year-end specials to 2015 year-start (I don't know if there's a thing or event such as year-start special) [hehe], I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH 2014 FOR THE AMAZING JOURNEY! 

A lot of my friends from cyberspace and even my neighbors from the alta sociedad de kanto-kanto asked me where was I the past days they didn't see me. I said I've just been to a kingdom far far away in the middle of the fountain right beside the green meadows across the valley of choo-choo. 

Well, it started with a simple wish granted by my boss, somehow a Christmas gift to me, a one week vacay in my charming hometown #Zamboanga where I spent my ME TIME and family bonding memorably.

Decemeber 29,2014 - I took the red-eye flight bound for Zamboanga via Philippine Airlines (the airline who took care of me and my miles excellently back and forth ). Although I was so sick that time, I still decided to fly because sayang ang miles (hehe). 

To make the long story short, I arrived Zamboanga safely and headed directly to my parents place in the mountain and had my bed rest for four days, rejuvenated my body and damaged system due to a very toxic schedule in Manila. 

January 1, 2015 - Bonding with nature

This is called PUKI REYNA

Stream where I used take a bath

We call it PAPUA

ME TIME at the bewitching dusk 
These photos below reminds me of my past, the first picture reminds me of my childhood, my way of life my happiness and my simple wants.   And as I grow older the second picture shows you of what I have and what I am far from the busy city and life in Manila,  I am not a real farmer neither one of them but the people I am dealing with back home are farmers, my friends relatives, and parents are all farmers the people whom I owe a lot to where I am now.

Well, that's just part of my mellow-dramatic story.. back to my journey...

Morning of January 7, 2015 - Last minute quick showing around the city before leaving for Manila

The Immaculate conception church

Touch of an Old world charm in the middle of the booming city

The famous Plaza Pershing situated in front of some local business establishments  

At the zamboanga International Airport Departure Lounge  nothing much to say  about the place just for one comment, "Need more improvement on CR cleanliness / maintenance" the rest are all well at least for the city like this who caters the amount of visitors but hopefully more brighter side to have.  


First time to board a small creature like this, my impression is propeller operated aircrafts are a bit noisier than the usual engine ones so better bring along with you a headset or something to cover your ears when you fly with this kind of aircraft. 

...and whenever / wherever I travel, I see to it that I have  #SuncoastLightwater inside my backpack all the time, an electrolyte enhanced water that replenishes me naturally.

To all the happy people who became part of my happy 2014 life congratulations and let us welcome the joy and prosperity of 2015 .


Adventure to the less traveled world in lonely planet

"Survivor world Rio Vitali edition 8th of september 2013 a day before the Zamboanga City siege"

No hindrances for people like us who wanted to experience another one-of-a-kind adventure while bonding and reuniting ties which is our own way of small get-together instead of climbing up neighbor's rooftop and stare the milky way. Another "dream come true" getaway with friends, a simple adventure yet worth a million dollar experience. This is our Rio Vitali experience

Six days before the Rio Vitali superb experience I got a text message from my friend Norman Ignacio, an invite to go swimming, it was almost a short notice for me because I already commit to the other group to go caving on the same day but I replied yes to him with excitement and no hesitation beacuae Rio Vitali has been in my dream to go to very long time ago. So Norman brought his sister floriza and also invited his cousins Laling and Popoy Cabayacruz, a total of five adventurer kuno made their way to Rio Vitali packed with suman de saging and rice made by Norman's mom for the viand it's all up to us what or where could we hunt for some but we decided to buy canned goods and tuyo / dried fish along the way instead of hunting wild pig, fish or birds :)

It took us I think 15 to 20 minutes to reach the site. Warning to those who want to go to Rio Vitali river don't drive a city car, you may drive motor bike, habal-habal or better yet drive your 4wd carabao and fuel up some energy because the road going there is horrifying. You will encounter a roller coaster ride or more than that "calling on the attention of the people concerned" Back to our story, we played, we hunted paku and tahba, we laughed and etc. The rain came down then sun after, still we managed to give justice to what our adventure means. We did our survivor version successfully but note this is not just a survivor USA, Asia or Austrailia this is survivor world Rio Vitali edition Sunday 8th of September a day before the Zamboanga City siege.

oops no objections please. Thanks to Norman, Popoy, Floriza and Laling.
