Basa: How E-books saved my life

One of my 2019 resolutions is to read more books. I used to be a bookworm during my youth, but smartphones and apps have really changed the face of the world. Fortunately, the convenience of smartphones can also be used for good. Swapping my mobile games for e-books, I got started on the first book of many for 2019.

Pagsusuri: New Balance 590 v3 Trailrunning Shoes

This one is a really really really late review but I guess when it comes to shoes, the more mileage you put on them, the more credible your review will get. So after putting on around 250 kilometers on this pair, I can finally tell my experience with them. Let’s go.

Akyat: Mt. Kinabalu

Friday to Saturday
November 30 to December 1, 2018

Akyat: Mt. Damas and Ubod Falls dayhike

Sunday
November 18, 2018

Since I have no more races for the rest of the year, I decided to go back to my roots; hiking. It’s been a while since I hiked a new mountain. The last one was Mt. Halcon (Sialdang) back in holy week. So for this weekend, while Khat was training in Kibungan, I searched for an organized hike in the FB group CLIMBER. I finally decided on the semi-major hike in Tarlac, Mt. Damas.

Takbo: Sandugo Pacific Coast Ultra 100 2018

Friday to Sunday
October 5-7, 2018

I’ve been putting off writing this post because I’ll probably ramble on too much if given the chance. But this was just too good of an event to not put into writing. Plus I have already compiled all my pictures for the event, it would be such a waste for me to not post them here.

So without further ado, here is my account of the race, with lots of words and even more pictures.
