How I celebrate my Valentines and my Birthday

**warning Picture overload**

Sorry guys for this late update but I must say that this is my best Valentines day and Birthday Celebration in my entire life. Not because I was dated by my Prince Charming or I got the greatest party ever but I had something that I achieved and fulfilled.

I was invited by my friend(birthday Feb.14) to Pakil, Laguna where the Our Lady of Sorrows of Turumba was enshrined. It was a 4-hrs travel from Cubao (HM trans terminal) and we departed 5:30am so we arrived in Pakil about 8:30 am. I am really exhausted I got 1hr sleep because of some conflict that I was traveling with my EX , only both of US! (jeez) I'm not worried to travel with him because were good friends but I know what our friends up to.:))

After we got some nap we packed our lunch and some drinks and we went to Piit River. When we arrived in the area all I can say is WOW! A hidden paradise ! The water is so cold and clear it even tastes sweet. The current is up roaring you almost cant hear anything when you're in the middle of the river. We wanted to climb the mountain to see the water falls but the keeper said it was in the middle of renovating some broken paths so we can't go there.



see the water? It is so clear

crossing the river

can you see me? I'm shivering that moment because
the water is so cold!

Nachos, grilled fish and some drinks!

We're leaving! Happy Birthday Kuya Mark!

On our second day(Feb 15) we decided to climb Mt. Pingas, it was part of Sierra Madre mountains where the Virgin mary of Turumba was enshrined.

going to hike that mountain baby!

okay lets move on.

At first I can managed but on our way to the top it was really hard!
O my! I'm thinking of backing out because my legs are aching.
but I know I can do it!

Can you meet me halfway?
We rest for about 5minutes

Another road to struggle

oh I saw an Arc! We are near to the peak!!!

As we reach the peak my friend Kelly was screaming to death we wonder why?

oh my gaaaaaawd! We're bitten by Leeches!!!!

I can't explain what I felt that very moment horrified but still happy..
I was horrified because no one would wanted to remove leeches on my foot,
happy because I was bitten by leech and no one wanted to be bitten right? hahaha!


sorry for my foot ^_^

I got 3 leeches on my foot and It was bleeding to death (30 mins bleeding)
It feels itchy when they bite you and if you remove them you'll see their sucking your skin
and it was hurt :((

the reward!

Breath taking..

Laguna de bay

see the rainbow!?

Its very rewarding from 1hr climbing with leeches,
slippery mountain rocks and raining hard.

my skin darken because I forgot to bring sunblock (O_O)\/

Its time to go home :))

Now, my whole lower body is still has muscle pain and the bite of leeches has still its mark
but I'm proud of myself. I just climbed a mountain and bitten by leeches what an experience!

Thank you to all of you who greeted me and remember my birthday!
thank you so much!
