"we write to taste life twice"
i haven't been able to post my (mis)adventures and i really do have plans of updating this blog and sharing with you guys my pusang gala moments but its either im lazy or busy hence its not updated. just need to post this lest i forgot and since this is also my personal diary, and me getting old (ugh) i need to list it down here, so that one day when i am grey and wrinkled i can look back and say oh i've been there and have done those crazy stuff.
the year that was 2011. backlog - travel stories i need to write
1.11.11 - first time to set foot in mindanao, went to Cagayan de Oro, misamis to attend the funeral of Nympha.
January - went back to CDO, this time this is a planned trip with my friends and also to celebrate my birthday. white water rafting at CDO - 12.32 km river course from Brgy. Mambuaya to Kabula with 14 major rapids and experienced the 'scariest' boat ride going to Camiguin but it was all worth it. Camiguin is a treasure island - the island also boast of hot spring (arden hot spring can reach up to 39 degrees celcius) and a cold spring (sto nino cold spring), with majestic waterfalls, volcanoes, and white beach.
