My wet experience in Anawangin

Earth,wind, and Rain

semi-overcast

Heavy rain and strong wind will never stop us from going to the beautiful place of Anawangin in Zambales.

Yun nga lang hindi din namin masyadong na enjoy and sunrise and sunset.. haaayyy! kasi ba naman almost 2 weeks na rin walang tigil ang ulan kaya nung dumating kami sa Pundakit wala kaming choice but to spend the night there.

Tingnan nyo oh!! badtrip dba??

Pero kahit masama ang panahon nakuha pa namin magpapicture upon arrival

And I believe Bro has a reason kaya hindi kami pinatuloy.Well, bukod sa delikadong hangin at mapang-aping alon ng dagat eh, gusto nya rin sigurong makita namin yung ganda ng place, which is very true.

sayang nga eh kasi hindi namin napuntahan yung island na ito which andun yung lighthouse at hindi din namin natawid yung katabing island which is lalakarin mo lang pag-low tide.

We went to the nearest waterfalls in the area (wala nga lang kami picture kasi baka mabasa at mahulog yung camera.sayang pero okay lang).

Syempre before kami naligo at magpa-water massage eh naghulog muna kami ng coins as respect sa mga nagbabantay sa lugar.

But before kami pumunta sa area, nagpapicture muna kami sa tabi ng Pundakit River:

Tabing ilog (sa likod dagat)

  • * eto pabalik na kami from the falls anawangin01.jpg

Mejo nakakapagod yung araw na yun kasi medyo magulo pa yung mga utak namin kasi from a 4 hour trip from Manila to San Antonio then 20-30 minutes tricycle drive from San Antonio to Pundakit, eh hindi namin alam kung makikipag-sapalaran sa dagat papunta sa location.

And the verdict :

no choice but to stay overnight and pray.

Here's an interesting story :

Alam nyo ba na ang mga Pine trees (ayon kay nanay) na nasa likuran ko ay nagumpisang nagasitubuan lang nung pumutok ang Mt. Pinatubo. galing noh?

Kapagod! ! tanggal ang beer-belly ko dito. halos 4 hours naming inakyat ang bundok na ito pabalik ng Pundakit. Pero okay lang kasi maganda naman ang view kasi habang naglalakad kami ay nakikita namin ang mga nakatagong waterfalls na sssuuuuuuppperrrr dami! at ang Cove ng Anawangin.

Tsaka hindi lang yun! 9 na ilog yung tinawid namin bago kami nakauwi. Astig dba?

Pero kahit gaano man kalayo o kataas ang aming tinahak. ilang sugat, rashes, uhaw at pagod ang aming naramdaman. Nadulas, natumba at nahilo. halos hindi ko maipaliwanag sa sarili ko ang saya at emosyong aking naramdaman.

May halong lungkot sa aming mga ngiti kasama ng pawis at gutom habang kami ay papauwi (honestly sobrang lungkot ko paguwi sa manila). hindi ko alam kung anong meron sa lugar ng Anawangin pero ito ang lugar na hindi ko makakalimutan at siguradong aking babalik-balikan.

Salamat sa magandang alaala.....

Boring Week

Ulan,Ulan,Ulan

rain

Bad Trip! i really hate it when it rains. kasi naman hindi ako makalabas, makagimik, or makapunta man lang sa tropa ko para tumambay, and the most annoying thing is basa ang kalsada. ang tanging remedy ko na lang is yung makatulog ng mahimbing at tska, masarap naman matulog and bumaluktot sa kama kapag malamig, diba? " and! aside from that, nung off ko sa work, para hindi ako mabagot sa bahay i've tried to clean up my closet and check some old books, and there i found my booklet that contains love poem. So let me share my Top 3 with you!

Number 1: A passage from the Holy Bible " 1 Corinthians 13 "

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, Love never fails.

Number 2: I have loved you in Silence

Whenever I looked at you I feel sudden sadness because I know you are someone who could never be mine... Maybe you have noticed the sudden changes I am having lately, I just couldnt handle it anymore. I cant go on pretending.. I hate myself for not being able to admit that I am afraid of the consequences that are bound to happen.. Your smile keeps on hunting me, my mind is telling me to forget you but how? For long I have loved you in silence, I tried to show it and hoping that you'll soon see the feelings I hide, yet.. you are blind or maybe you're not just ready for something like this or maybe you are waiting for my move, a move that will never happen. The distance between us is getting bigger and I cant do anything but to admire you from a distance. I know whatever happens you and I will remain just a dream. Only in my dream I can hold you, only there I can tell you're mine but when the dream is finally over, reality creeps through my heart and says you're someone who could never be mine.

Number 3: Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

I hope you love it..

My Short story

Hindi ako makapaniwala na sa dami ng hirap na pinagdaanan ko recently i'm still alive standing. God is good! hindi nya ako pinababayaan. i've been to hell sabi nga nila. It took me a year to move on with my past relationship and career. naghirap, stressed,fed up,passed out,confused on what went wrong,desperado,nasiraan ng bait,naloko! i guess lahat na lang yata ng bagay parang gusto kong pasukin just to avoid the pain and hatred deep within me. O.A pakinggan pero malalaman mo lang yung pakiramdam kapag ikaw na yung nasa situation. Halos hindi ko na makita ang liwanag sa mata ko kapag tumitingin ako sa salamin, halos hindi ko na maaninag ang mukha ko . ika ko nga " Malabo na ba mata ko or muta lang ito? " pero hindi pala. stress daw sabi ng iba. sabi ko naman " aaaahhhh??? ganun ba yun.."

A girlfriend of my drinking buddy told me everything when she saw me. lumapit siya sa akin and ask to hold my hands and checked my palm, kala ko crush nya ako pero mali pala. heheheh! marunong pala manghula ang lola mo. hehehe! nung una nga natakot pa ako kasi baka kung ano ano sabihin nya sa akin.. Pero na amaze ako kasi alam nya past ko and she gave me a heads up about my future pero hindi ko naman pwedeng gawing basis yun. mag-ingat lang daw ako sa mga decisions na gagawin ko. And i'm happy kasi she cares. Im thankful because i met people like her.

Sabi nga ng mga kaibigan ko para lang daw akong kabute na kapag may problema bigla na lang mawawala, bigla na lang din daw lilitaw. Hindi ko rin maintindihan kung bakit ako ganun, im letting my problem eat and drag me down then leaving me hopeless on the ground. It's ironic pero ganun talaga, minsan pagpagod ka na sa mga nangyayari sa buhay mo parang ayaw mo ng bumangon at lumaban pero hindi naman habang buhay na ganun na lang, we need to learn to survive. That's part of our life, sink or swim kumbaga. For now i can only say na okay na ulit ako,pretty much na ka move on na ako. im ready to face new challenges and treasure the new new love of my life, start a fruitful career and a healthy lifestyle of course. Sana tuloy tuloy na ito.
