Come'on Manalmon up to Bayukbok

Yesterday, an organized dayhike for my first time hiker friends was a blast. It was planned by me and with the help of outdoorsman Elvis Pimentel last month. Specifically, the hike is for my friends who wants to try hiking. It's in my bucket list and successfully it was done in Madlum, San Miguel Bulacan.

'Twas my 2nd time around to hike in Mt. Manalmon. 3 of my high school friends (Dada, Roann and Marlon) 1 college friend (Jimar), 1 co-worker (Ron) and 1 from frisbee team mate (Jam) and his 3 invites has totaled the participants of dayhike. Our organizer Elvis has 3 marshalls, Sid, Zarm and Onad. The service van picked up us at Technohub (my workplace) around past 4 in the morning. The ride went on for 2.5 hours to San Miguel, Bulacan. Its too hot already around 7:00am upon the arrival of our service van. My 9 invitees were all excited. We started from LNT (Leave no trace) discussion led by Elvis and a prayer which was led by me.

The Scorching heat of Mt. Balagbag

I usually have saturday shift work for three months starting March. I was getting burnout from night shift last months January and February and was not able to do my weekend pleasures because of resting for long hours of the day. Got so many climb invites from my friends but always not getting the chance to join them.

Yesterday, I decided to join the hosted dayhike of my friend Kimmy together with her churchy friends. Mt. Balagbag is indeed a perfect venue for the first time hikers and training ground for mountain bikers and trail runners.

Mt. Balagbag trail

Basically the trail of Mt. Balagbag is really brittle and dry type of land but a wide established road viewing 360 degrees of different mountain ranges. With minimal number of trees around that makes it hard for the hikers to position themselves while taking rest. Nevertheless, you can still relax in this mountain especially when its windy :) I could almost get my nap for an hour while in the summit.

The flying disc

Venue: Circulo Verde, Eastwood City Libis (here where I started playing)

Hello there! I havent written quite for some time, and Im so excited to share to you guys one of my favorite sports, the Ultimate frisbee. Frisbee is what you call to the disc or an object that is used to for playing. We usually used 175-grams disc for playing. Ultimate is the term for the sport. Points are scored by passing the disc to a teammate in the opposing end zone.
