Where Have I Been Planking Lately?
Guess the right answer and in at least 222 words, tell me something about the place to win a MissBackpacker shirt. Clue: A community somewhere in North which was hit by a tsunami in 1735. Deadline is on August 1 while announcement of winners follows the next day (winners must be a fan of MissBackpacker). Contest starts now!

It has been a long time since I wrote a decent entry, I admit. My past posts were nothing but inane rants. So here, an attempt on producing a substantial write-up.
Dot dot dot.
My friends at the office and I decided to take three days off from our exhausting work loads. And so we all agreed to go back to Aurora, which we visited some three years ago. Digital cameras were not yet a hype during that time. I promised not to miss the second chance of capturing Aurora’s beauty particularly Baler. For all I know, this could be my last visit to one of the North’s pearls.
It took me a while to find out that the first part of our vacation was Diguisit Falls. I asked one of the locals there, who I think is not a real native of the place, what the name of the falls is. He wasn’t able to give me any answers so I just counted on Mister Google who never fails me.

Team Evercrest’s family is growing bigger! And this time, we tried a more challenging mountain.
Last weekend’s hike to Pico de Loro was a success. I am so frikken proud of my officemates-slash-friends that no one, though extremely exhausted as we went straight to Ternate, Cavite after our night shift with little to no rest at all, gave up to the mountain’s arduous trails. We even finished the hike at a very reasonable time of 4 hours, a success I could say since most of them are mountaineering rookies.
We had to leave the office a little late compared to our itinerary of 7:00am, to freshen up and also so others could properly pack their stuff. We rented three cabs to bring us to Baclaran where the activity would begin. While everyone was busy munching on their Chowking breakfast, Rowjie was wandering around the place looking for a van we could rent which could bring us to the jumpoff, Ternate. In less than 10 minutes, he returned with the good news that he found Kuya Dindo, who’s willing to drop us off at the jumpoff point for P3200.
Recently, I learned of this new insane activity, which doesn’t require anything but a crazy mind. Readers, let me present my newly-found addiction, PLANKING. Thanks to Mean from whom I’ve first seen plank photos.
Planking is also known as the lying down game wherein one is expected to lay down with face touching the ground and with both hands, at a pointed direction, touching the sides of the body.
