Second Visit to Jose Rizal Monument

Rizal Monument
Rizal Park is the well known landmark in the Philippines because of its historical values and beautiful landscape, near Intramuros in Manila. Its name is derived from Dr. Jose Rizal as a tribute to our national hero's patriotic act. It is also called Luneta (Lunette) because of its shape and was previously called Bagumbayan. This was the place where Rizal was executed by the Spanish Colonial Forces on December 30, 1896 which sparked the fire of the Philippine Revolution against the Spaniards.

Benefits of Getting a Beep Card

Beep Card
 I am planning to work for a company in McKinley Hill, Taguig and daily commuting is a bit challenging. Imagine, from Rizal I need to take a ride in an FX to Ayala and alight in Kalayaan and then a jeepney ride to Market Market or I can also wait for those with a direct route to Market Market. From there, I have to ride again in a jeepney to Lawton Avenue, McKinley Hill and wait for the shuttle roaming around area. As part of my plan, just purchased a Stored Value Beep Card at the MRT Ortigas station, costs 100 pesos with 80 pesos wallet value, to be used for my daily commuting. What can I get from this Beep Card?

Cucumber Benefits | Now I Know

Cucumber Benefits
We have a small farmland in the province, during rainy season we usually plant rice and string beans but during summer we plant water melon, melon, squash,  eggplant, and many other vegetables that grow without too much water; wait, I almost forgot pipino or cucumber. Among those veggies I mentioned, I usually rate cucumbers as the lowest because I seldom see them as important as the water melons and the others and usually forgot what they can give to people.

Mt. Talamitam | BHM on 3rd

Our original plan was Mt. Maculot, but two days before the climb, it was changed to Mt. Talamitam in Nasugbu, Batangas. Night trekking was certainly full of fun since there was no problem with the harmful sun UV rays. Talamitam is covered with cogon grass and shrubs; no hard wood or trees that can protect the hikers from the sun rays. Its highest point measures 630+ MASL with a gorgeous ambiance on top. There's one hundred meters assault to the summit which added an amazing adventure to the hikers. Mt. Batulao and Mt. Pico de Loro were just two of the well known mountains nearby.

Mt. Maculot

Mt. Maculot

Mt Maculot is one of the mountains lying in southern Luzon which is prominent to mountaineers because of its special feature. Maculot is one of the best options for day hikes because of its minor trail type, terrains that are covered with trees and surrounded by grass and shrubs, the air is fresh, cool ambiance and a perfect location for a stunning shot with the world-famous and most active Taal Volcano on the background. The rockies is one of the best and famous part of Maculot.

Faces of Mt. Apo

Mt. Apo
 Mt. Apo is the tallest mountain in the Philippines, 2,956 MASL. It was a tough journey, but absolutely a life changing experience for us. Despite of its technical factors like the assault and steep trails, extreme coldness, tiring hike and etc. that measured my strength, I was able to conquer my own fears. It's hard to tell and explain, so these photos below will explain more.

Ortigas Center, Pasig City

When  I was still in Romblon, I didn't  expect that my career will boost here in Metro Manila, particularly in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. It was in 2008 when I started working in a BPO but it's my first time to add this area in SirangLente or TravellingCup. Ortigas Center has a lot to offer, from the five star hotels with world class facilities, restaurants serving mouth water delicacies made by the people from different parts of the world, call center companies serving different languages and many others.

Getting a Copy of NSO Birth Certificate at SM

NSO Certified Birth Certificate  is one of the most important document that you should furnish from the government. Birth certificates are needed for employment, school, and for requesting other ID's from the government. Despite of the fast technology, let's accept the reality that requesting documents from the government agencies needs more time and effort. To resolve this old problem, government agencies like NBI, SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-ibig, DFA, and other offices placed their kiosk inside the SM Supermalls and Robinsons nationwide.
