Romi Garduch and Jonjon “LA” Villareal made it to the top of Yala peak!

By

Here is an update on Romi’s Mt. Cho Oyu climb 🙂 Here is an excerpt:
… “that last 5 minutes of rock scrambling on the slippery and unstable knife-ridge of the summit of Yala (w/o safety ropes), with 1000m vertical fall potential on both sides of the ridge; those leaps of faith over several crevasses (again w/out ropes hehe) ”

It’s hard to believe something so beautiful has caused so much sorrow..”
These are some of the reactions to this beautiful picture of the Katrina’s eye. This is not a picture out of your tornado movie but an actual shot of the eye of the hurricane.

Goodluck Romi on your Mt. Cho Oyu Climb!!

By

He invited me to join at least the short trek at the slopes of Nepal during the first part of his climb but my schedule and finance does not permit it. I’m glad Ching was able to join and I’ll expect very nice pictures from their trip. … For those who wants to contribute here and know more information about this noble cause, here are some links:

A Glimpse of Raymund’s Isaac Artistic Brilliance

By

I’m amazed at how it is being done, and I was fortunate to witness how Raymund Isaac brings the concept of “Essence of Wellness” to life. All elements of the visual are handled with excellence — from the projection of professional models, to the perfect make-up, to the artistic props/setup, and and choreography of the visual scene.
…In this particular case, Raymund’s hands were the closest in tone so he decided to be the aloe vera hand props.

Sunday Morning Walk @ Seaside (Mall of Asia)

By

If you have not been to this place, this is the best place to exercise and spend early Sunday morning with your family. We call it the Seaside area where this is located near The Way, The Truth and the Life Church built by Henry Sy or infront of the biggest mall in Asia!
…There are group exercises in the morning, you can jog, ride a bike, or simply walk with your family from one end to another.

Carlos Celdran noble cause to change the way we look at Manila!

By

I remembered to post this article when Mike Best, my visitor from Cincinnatti, gave me a thank you gift which I received via mail last week. … Finally, I was able to meet the funky down-to-earth carlos and I joined not only one but two tours in one saturday afternoon.
… Carlos is a great promoter of the Philippines and we should have all tourists to our country to have the celdran tours as a must in their itinerary.

Mango and branded apparels at Factory Prices!

By

I can’t believe it 🙂 It is like a factory outlet store in Manila that actually has quality branded apparel goods at less than 500 pesos per piece.
…They cannot believe it when they saw some of the same clothes that are being sold in the mango stores for P900+, you can buy it in the factory sale for around P300!
…Upon entering Meyc exit, turn left at the rotonda towards Iba (there is a sign), go straight past all the gas stations and you will see a big water tank of sterling on your right that marks the industrial park.
