Finally, its Kadayawan!
This King of all Philippine Festival is one of the Philippine thanksgiving festivals without Christian roots. It is a celebration which involves the original 11 Lumads of the city and their bountiful harvest every year. It highlights the melting pot of cultures that make Davao a vibrant, booming, interesting region.
There’s the short introduction of the said festival whome I usually got to witness every year.
Here’s for my second leg of adventure in Lake Holon. Nyay! 😀
Originally, I planned to post to make a draft that is only good for one post. Then, suddenly, I found myself reminiscing all the memories, small and big details alike until I realized, one post isn’t good enough. Hah! So here’s for my second treat. First one if here. 😉
Alright, the great procrastinator has finally come back. 😀
Just so you know, I’ve been wandering around since March, spend extra hours in the office on April to finance and in preparation for my solo backpacking and many more adventures the following month. Yep, that’s why I was left with loads of drafts-in-the making and owe a lot of unshared summer-ry stories.
Here I come! 😀

When you hear the word “enchanted”, what would come to your mind first? Would you say it’s a total mystery, bewitched or spelled? Well, let’s find out.
If you have observed, I’ve been posting a lot of photos since the the start of Mt. Apo’s Forest/Grass Fire. I was equally devastated along with mountaineers and concern citizens alike in the country. After all, it is Mt. Apo- our living Philippine Pride and country’s highest peak, the God of all Philippine Mountain and the home of the Philippine Eagle.

21st day of December at 2:31 pm…
The climax of our long journey happened when we finally conquered the ever infamous Davao peak. I was suddenly speechless for a few moment so I kinda decided to take a video instead.
The feeling was extraordinary and the view was undoubtedly phenomenal. It reserved the right to be called Philippine’s highest peak. Clearly, Mt. Apo is one true landmark. Continue reading
I knew when I had too many good memories to share because I tend to chop them off into pieces. Did I use the right term? 😀 😀 😀
By the way, if you ever think of beaches upon reading the words, White Sand, you better think twice. Aside from being the continuation for the my previous post, probably the reason why it was called as such because of the limestone dominating around the place.
‘Tis was the second day (December 21st).
The day when we were bound to reach gigantic boulders, be swept away by strong winds at the summit, shiver ourselves to death due to dropping temperature and be constantly amazed by nature.
Oh, 2015 was all over now. I was still quite nostalgic but I know 2016 has come all the way with it’s own right to give hope to everyone.
I swear, I’ll always looked back to 2015 with a big smile on my face. A lot of things did happen. I guess it’s quite obvious based on the entries being posted here. So to end that year with a bang! Finally, after 3 weeks in the making, I’m more excited to share to you my phenomenal year-end hike to none other than the majestic and Philippine’s highest peak itself, Mt. Apo.
I bet you’ve already seen a lot of posts from mountaineers hiking to this magnificent mountain. Others would have told you the means on how to get there, their own experiences and whatnot. Mine was entirely different.
I’m probably writing in a rush right now after knowing that I’ve only got few days to finish my #MTDoV Series. But hey, I’m always writing the best way possible so I still hope you’re enjoying every bit of my post. 😀 😀 😀
Now, the pictures above will tell you or give you a hint about my next post. So……
