Been pretty busy. Loving the free-spirited world.

Over the weekend, went on a trip to Puerto Galera on a tight budget. But the Universe provides. Met cool people. Hiked to Tamaraw Falls for free. Got tanned, just the way I like it. Exercised. Ate yummy food. Knew about local culture.

Made a lot of friends: Ate Perly, the masahista. Hamad, the tour guide. And so many more. Also, got to know some foriegners. Sara, a Swiss. And Steven, an American based in Korea and planning to put up an English school here in the Philippines.

Chatted with boatmen, vendors, carinderia owners, stall owners etc etc.

Jammed with very cool guys and girl (Alex) at the Henna Tattoo Shop. Had a tequila shot with with teen-agers and young adult girls.

On the way home to Quezon City, gained a friend in Angela.

And so many more! Pero dahil quick update lang to, hanggang dito na muna. šŸ™‚

Basta super duper happy!

Will post photos when I have the time. šŸ™‚

P.S. And while doing all these fun activities, I campaigned for Noynoy Aquino, Mar Roxas, For Senators: Risa Hontiveros, Danny Lim, and Neric Acosta. For Party List: Ang Ladlad.

And shared perspectives on tribal culture, the need for local people to respect and take pride in their Mangyan heritage, the healing properties of the sea, falls, mountains, plants etc etc.
