Two Places At One: An Amazing Road Trip To Cebu’s Highest Waterfalls, Mantayupan Falls And Unexpected Refreshing Resto Along The Road To Carcar, Cebu

When somebody is trying to bring you down they have a problem in their own life and they have their own motivations to do so. You can only feel sorry for somebody like this. And it’s not for you to judge or opinion right or accuse or say anything bad back to them just except it and move don it’s the safest way and it stops the arguments.

In the midst of my emotional distress a friend of mine is struggling a problem and want to forget it for the meantime. As a saying goes everything happens for a reason, then we’re on a road trip nowhere. It was late in the morning when we decided to go to the south of Cebu. While we’re on her scooter, I’m thinking of a good place to visit to refresh both our minds. We’re busy talking when suddenly Matayupan falls pop up in my mind. It’s not too very far from the mainland to take a quick dip and enjoy the scenery going to the falls. We came up for an agreement going to the falls. In 2 hours we arrive in Cebu’s highest waterfalls.

Entance fee is 40 php and 20 php for parking fee.

Before we reach our destination, we went to Carcar’s market to buy half kilo of lechon (roasted pig) and hanging rice (poso in local) for our lunch. We even bought a crispy pork skin called “chicharon”for snack. Finger food is the most convenient if your traveling to save time as well as it’s hassle free.

Complacency and Climbing At Mt. Pangasugan

mR0jhMRQ

Happy climber as we start the trail along the fluvial stream of Mt. Pangasugan.

Hi everyone I’m still alive! And it”s good to be alive 🙂 On my last expedition e.g mountain climbing, @Mt.Pangasugan I had an accident. I was the 4th person of 12 people in the group which was scaling a very rocky and treacherous terrain when I had my accident. To my shagreen I discovered there was a camouflage rock which decided to give me a journey of a lifetime. I stepped upon it then discovered myself plummeting towards the rock with my face. 😦 This is when a miracle happened, I felt like somebody had grabbed me and twisted me so I landed on my side. However there was nobody in my vicinity to make this happen. I found myself on a wicked toboggan ride with no control. I was bless and very lucky for my backpack to become a land anchor. My backpack acted like a grappling hook and it retarded my descend. After I had stopped this extraordinary descend, my friends came to my aid. At this time my body is surging with adrenaline which counteracted the pain I was in. I was also in shock and awe. Then I got on too my feet. I look up at the mountain and I was feeling very intimidated.

This is where I fall! About 10-20 meters free fall.

I have learn a lesson and I now have the utmost respect for any mountain climbing and hiking trails no matter the skill level required. After taking a 15 minute rest spell we continue our journey. My reflection on climbing and hiking has been change forever. Every time I look at my broken phone I reflect and think this could been my face and not the phone.
