Fun Run Photobooth

I am not really fond of outdoor activities. Ever since I step in as a freshman in high school, my neighbor hasn’t got to see the glimpse of me. I am what you called, school-home-school-home girl or whatever you call that. I rarely step outside the house since then.

Here comes the challenge, I graduated and got a stable work. The company that I’ve worked on is not just a totally all-work company, they have this different outdoor activities to have their employee some bonding and work-free time.

Summer Aloha Fun Run. Just what the title says, it’s a fun run! My company just organized an outdoor event happening in Nuvali, Laguna. All employees are of course invited to register and join the run. And not that you expected, but I join the event. Impossible? Nah. Well, I probably want another chapter in my diary huh, it’s my first fun run ever.

Being a noob again, I register to a 5K run. I joined without thinking how far 5K was for a first timer like me. But hey, just like my hiking escapade, I survived and manage to run 5K in a mediocre span of time I guess. Definitely, it was fun. I feel like I’m an innocent girl who just got out of my house after a decade, lol.

With MaxiBear! It was actually a great achievement I’ve done and promise myself to do it again. Running is not just running because you want. You also get to have an extraordinary exercise for your whole body and it’s a good thing for our health.

I have a great feeling after the run together with friends, a great place, fresh air and the sunrise, it’s fantastic! I am very thankful to my company having this kind of event.

Here’s my picture with our company mascot! MaxiBear!

Remember, jog and run 10-15 minutes every day is a good exercise for our body. Let’s all get fit and healthy in our own way.

Thanks for reading and have a good day!

First Hike Pico De Loro
When talking about a person’s bucket list, certainly you cannot forget about including “hiking” on your list, right? I’ve told you on my last post that I am going to share my past experiences before I started this blog. And so, we’re going to talk about my first hiking experience ever.

So much for being a beginner, I am not at my utmost hiking prep. Skinny jeans, fitted t-shirt and a chuck taylor shoes is my game. Surely you’re thinking “Are you really going for a hike?” but ‘Yes’! I am. Just a careful reminder for beginners though, please don’t try to have that outfit in a hike ever. My outfit gives me the whole uncomfortable experience but it’s definitely fun. So how did I manage to survive, eh? I don’t have any idea also but I am writing you this post so definitely I am a survivor! Anyhow, I did manage to hike with those clothes since practically that mountain is good for beginners.

Mt. Pico De Loro (also known as Mount Palay-palay)

Pico De loro SummitTogether with my eight(8) co-workers, we travel from Dasmariñas, Cavite to Ternate, Cavite by car. Fortunately, one of my co-workers have a Terrano Car, its actually magical we got fitted on to it. God knows how, but we manage.  Since it was only a day hike, we have eaten breakfast before the hike and just a packed food for our lunch. Another reminder also, water is essential, so don’t forget to have your own water during the hike. Packed lunch is just an option since Pico De Loro have this what they call the Base camp 1 where most of the people built their tent(if you are going for an overnight stay on the mountain) and there are stores in the area where you can buy lots of foods and water.
That’s not yet the end of our hike, as Mt. Pico De Loro had this Pointed Summit that resembles a shape of a beak. Beside the Pico De Loro Summit, is a monolith. We haven’t gone to the monolith since there were so many hikers that day and it seems more hard to hike though due to its 90 degrees rock formation.

Pico De Loro MonolithIt’s not yet the end of our escapade. We’ve got so much fun during our travel from bottom to top but it was definitely much more fun during our hike to the bottom. What we did is a traverse hike on the mountain, we’ve got to Pico De Loro in Ternate, Cavite but we descend and hike back to Nasugbu, Batangas. We actually forgot our car was park on the Pico De Loro entrance in Ternate, funny we just remember it after we descend. Thus, another fun part is travelling from Batangas to Cavite by a tricycle.

And done! Say goodbye to my first hiking experience. Well, it’s not a goodbye though, if I have the “First”, then there should be a “Second”, right?

Hope you enjoy reading my funny and noob hiking escapade. See you on my next post guys.
