Takbo: Mt. Talinis Mountain Ultra Marathon 2019

Saturday to Sunday
October 5-6, 2019

Being born and raised in Negros Occidental, Dumaguete City is a familiar place that always gets mentioned by my family and friends. It serves as the Negros Oriental counterpart to our Bacolod City, but I didn’t know much about Mt. Talinis until about a year ago.

The tallest mountain (technically Volcano) in the region, and the 2nd tallest on Negros island after Mt. Kanlaon, Mt. Talinis is also known as Cuernos de Negros (horns of Negros) for its unique shape. This mountain is the venue for the Mt. Talinis Mountain Ultra Marathon and I was able to be attend its second edition. Here is my experience and review.

Ever since coming back to the Philippines with a couple of RG Gunpla kits from Japan, I’ve been hooked on these toys. That was around three weeks ago and at the time of this writing, I have averaged two Gunpla kits a week. I have spent the weekends indoors and have ignored the call of the mountains for consecutive weeks already. Not that I’m complaining, but it’s way different from the usual hobbies you see posted here.

Baliktanaw: Japan 2019

Going to Japan was a life changing experience. Coming from a sinking, third world country like the Philippines, it was a feast for my eyes to see how efficient everything could be. And although I know that it’s not all butterflies and rainbows over there, it’s now one of my favorite places to visit. In my post-Japan daily life, I often find myself remembering all the things I experienced and that gives me that extra push to work a little bit harder so I can save up for another visit.

In the meantime, I might as well write a blog about my first visit to the Land of the Rising Sun. Here are some ramblings about Japan and the memorable things I liked and observed.
