Hush, Kaiz. This is just your first day. Don't let them know that your headache is killing you. When headache kicked in at just 2,652 meters above sea level (MASL) during the first hours of our trek, I expected to be at my worst condition in the following days.

The Math in My Traveling

I don't like Math and numbers. Same reason why I took a college course which I thought wouldn't involve Math. Voila! I had Statistics, Economics, and two subjects of Algebra with grades ranging from 2.5 to 3.0 (fair to thank-all-the-saints-you-barely-made-it).

The Ring, Feng Shui, Shutter, The Grudge, and the list goes on. These are just some of the films I can hardly forget because of the nightmares they caused me after seeing them.
