Corregidor Trip 2012

Last December, I went camping with friends at the Corregidor Island or “The Rock” for 3 days. We pitched our tent and camped at the South Beach of the island. We enjoyed the fresh air, the sunrise and sunset. We joined some of the tours but we also enjoyed walking around the island. It was fun exploring the island as well as the American and Japanese tunnels. I hope you will enjoy the photos! 🙂

Mt. Romelo and Buruwisan Falls

I recently went on a hike with friends. It is my second time at Famy, but this time, we stayed overnight. It took us a little over two hours to hike up the mountain. It was tiring because of some steep parts of the trail and also because of the summer heat and our heavy backpacks.

When we got to the top, it was all worth it. We enjoyed the cool water from the falls after a quick lunch.

We had a small camp fire for s’mores after eating dinner at our kubo.

The next morning, we woke up very early and hiked down the mountain at 4:00AM in order to catch the sunrise at the top of the hill. We had breakfast at the hill while watching the sunrise.

The hike down was a little bit faster and cooler because of the early morning sunlight. We just had to be extra careful so as not to slide down at some parts of the descent.

I can’t wait to hike up another mountain!

Kids at Batangas

November of 2011 before school resumed, I was able to join an outreach to the Aetas at Batangas. At first, I did not know what to expect, but when we arrived there, our hearts melted. The kids are kind and friendly. I love taking photos of them. We also did another outreach at a kubo beside the sea at Batangas. The kids filled the kubo with fun and their laughter.
