TAYNFORSOMEACTION: Tapulao 15hrs Dayhike

Mt. Tapulao has been in my hike list for a long time now, and back then, I’ve never imagined I’ll be doing this just in one day. Having to postpone this hike for two times in a row, I made sure that on the third time, we will push through the plans, even there is only three of us in this trip. And so, after making the necessary arrangements with the Tapulao authorities, we venture on an overnight trip from Victory Liner – Caloocan to Iba, Zambales (Salaza to exact) on a Friday night.       Since I was…

TAYNFORSOMEACTION: Bicol Express

Bicol is best known for the “perfect cone-shape” Mt. Mayon, its spicy delicacies and the Islands of Caramoan (location of the 26th Season of the hit reality series Survivor in 2013).

Located in the southern part of Luzon, Bicol is surely a quick access for some sun and sand fun (for real).       Together with a bunch of friends, I…

And so one Friday night, I was at my apartment with a friend (now boyfriend), contemplating about life in general (haha),…

TAYNFORSOMEACTION: The Pulag Experience

When we talk about Mt. Pulag, first thing that would come to mind is the iconic ‘sea of clouds’. All that white pieces of heaven, perfect for that Instagram ‘#wanderlust’ post, right? But seriously speaking, being the third highest point in the Philippines (used to be second), reaching the peak of Mt. Pulag is surely a dream for all hikers (well, it surely is a dream for me).       Before I started climbing in late 2014, I know nothing about Mt. Pulag. But all of this had changed when most of my (then) co-workers hiked Mt. Pulag. All…
