Mago Peak: The Boundary Climb

Last month, PAC Gear organized an event for the trekking enthusiasts in Cebu (registration was PHP300 for guide fee, permits, and bag tag), so our group joined in. This was my first trek with total strangers, and we were around 50 in number! The idea of having many people going trekking is exciting, but some things get a little bit frustrating.

The planned meet-up was at 10am at North Bus Terminal, but some people from other groups came [very] late. When we were finally complete at around 12pm, we rode a bus to Carmen (PHP50/head; there was even a mishap with this one due to our number and the size of our bags). And because the traffic was already getting heavy, we arrived at the town market at 2pm. We had a quick lunch before heading to the jump-off area via motorcycle (PHP100/head) for around an hour.

Mt. Mauyog + Mt. Manunggal

For this weekend trip, Mumu and I, together with a larger group, were supposed to visit Mt. Kapayas in Catmon but due to circumstances beyond our control, we had to cancel it and look for another adventure. Mumu then decided that we trek Mt. Mauyog and traverse to Mt. Manunggal (both are located in Balamban).

We were 10 in the group (originally 20+ people for Mt. Kapayas, but others backed out when the venue was changed), so instead of hiring motorcycles to take us to Brgy. Tabunan, we hired a jeepney for PHP3,000 (roundtrip).

Brgy. Tabunan is around 1.5 hours from JY Square Mall in Lahug. We were able to hire a guide there when we arrived in the morning, and we started the trek at 10am after we bought some food for lunch.

ACN Cebu Digital Summer Outing

Digital is my industry group at work, by the way. We had our summer outing on the last Saturday of May at Be Resorts Mactan.

I just joined this group on April this year, so I’m one of the new people here (but I’ve been with the company for 3 years already). I went there with my training batchmates so at least it wasn’t awkward being in a new environment. :P

It was a really hot day! We finished our major activities (team cheer, games, raffle, lunch) in the morning and spent the afternoon at the pool. I won the grand prize for the raffle, by the way! It’s a 2014 GoPro Hero (entry-level)! I sold it to my friend, though. Hehehe. :D

Dao Falls and Aguinid Falls in Samboan, Cebu

After our Mt. Hambubuyog adventure in Ginatilan, we asked the motorcycle drivers to take us to the next town, which is Samboan, and we spent the rest of the day at Chelan Resort. Since it was still too hot when we arrived there, we waited until late in the afternoon before we soaked ourselves in the waters. It was already low tide and we didn’t like going farther so we stayed in the shallow waters. Then I struck a sea urchin. Ouch. Thankfully, though, it didn’t hurt as much.

The next day, which was Sunday and Pacquiao’s fight was scheduled on that day (we weren’t able to watch because our adventure > Pacman hehehe), another unfortunate event happened to me — my monthly visitor came. Clue: it’s red and brings a lot of pain. Hahaha #sorrynotsorry. I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy this day, but I still did. :))

Note: Most of the photos in this post are from Mumu and my friend Angel.
