Antipolo and Manila's Golden Skyline

Manila Skyline
Tara na sa Antipolo!! Planning to go out of town? How far will you go when you say “Out of Town?” It’s not clear right? Geographically speaking, can we consider Rizal province as “Out of Town?” These questions give a headache. We had our team building at one of the rest houses in Antipolo, where the Metro Manila’s golden skyline can be seen.

Waiting for the Supermoon

SupermoonTwo days ago when I noticed that the moon has an extraordinary brilliance and just today, I accidentally saw Supermoon article online. So I searched and here's what I found on Wikipedia. A Supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. According to NASA: "When a full moon makes its closest pass to Earth in its orbit it appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter, making it a supermoon." The next Beaver Supermoon that's this close and full will be on Nov. 25, 2034.

November 7, 2015, same day as today, I celebrated my birthday on the summit of the highest mountain in the Philippines – Mount Apo. It was the most unforgettable adventure in my twenty something years of  existence. I am still aiming for more! More travel for the next few years. Sa lahat ng mga bumati ngayong araw ng aking kapanganak, sa aking pamilya, sa aking mga kaibigan, sa mga taong walang humpay ang pagsuporta – MARAMING SALAMAT PO! Pipilitin kong magampanan ang mga tungkuling nakaatang sa aking mga balikat para sa ikauunlad ng ating sambayanan.
