Summer is not over yet, for us it’s just about to start. Hehe. I will always and forever be loving this place! I fell in love in this place the first time we visited and this time it’s nice to be back not only with him but with my entire team. What a joy to share with them my passion for adventure and love for nature! What a delightful feeling for letting them explore the place that is very close to my heart! August of last year when we first come here and the excitement is still the same.

With the influx of technology nowadays, we can easily capture the beautiful sceneries of your destinations and share with friends through social media in just one click. Few months ago my friends tagged me in my facebook account a stunning photo of waterfall. I do researched about it and found out that it’s in Majayjay Laguna and we planned to go there before summer officially ends. As traveler and nature lover, I always consider Laguna as one of the best destination near Metro Manila because of its famous natural destination like hot spring, waterfalls, lakes and mountains.

“Sometimes you have to travel back to a place to bring the memories back when you were younger.”
I can still remember when I was 7-years old, the first language I learned when I came to Manila was Kapampangan instead of Tagalog. My parents decided to leave our province and move to Pampanga where my father is working. As they said, it’s for us to have a better future. Imagine a mother hen having her seven chicks walking after her? Yes, we looked like that and thank God that they really worked hard. The first few Kapampangan words I was able to say was “keni ka”, “ali ku”, “nanu” until I was able to speak fluent Kapampangan. I can still recall those huge hot air balloons floating above us. Our playground back then was a sugarcane field. This is where I first learn how to play a bike. Yes, big bike for the big girls, enjoying her life as a young girl, playing here and there with her friends. Until a disaster marked the Philippine history, Mt. Pinatubo erupted. Yes, I was there. I’ve seen the thick smoke coming from the mountain’s mouth. We were not asked to evacuate but the surrounding looks terrible. There was ashes all over the place caused by the eruption and lahar filled some areas. Just so thankful to Almighty for keeping us safe.
