Golden Gate Adventure Resort: Nature’s Neighbour and Man’s Wilderness

1476377803509

As I have known, my days in BPO days would be over soon so I promised myself to gave last hurrah on this team-building finale’.

The Golden Gate Adventure Resort in Katipunan,  BuDa, Davao City was no stranger to me as it was previously chosen as one of the venues where we supposed to hold our team-building before my former team was dissolved.

Personally,  to say that this place held special moments is an understatement. Beforehand,  my TL had given me assignment to search for place, the budget cost as well as the activities before presenting in front of them. It’s like under the notion that “Hey,  this is your last TB anyway so mind as well do the privilege! 😀 ”

Men in the Mountains

Trek with the next generation of responsible mountaineers.

A post shared by Maria Michaela Q. Jamora (@itsmicaejamora) on

As a mountaineer myself, it’s been a privilege to meet people so young (and not so young alike) willing to pursue their passion into mountain climbing. Apart from reaching the peak and take wonderful shots to boast in social media, it is equally interesting to let them know that the journey towards becoming a responsible mountaineers will be as hard as ascending into the steep trail. Knowledge and skills on mountaineering as well as the heart and mind of a true mountaineer will be their weapon to this passion.

Canibad’s Galore

The Madayaw Beach Resort located in Canibad, Samal Island has always been a place for good memories. I came to visit this place in three years in a row now. Yet, the island still exudes so much excitement and adventure, not to mention the ambiance of the people that I am with.

This time, though I didn’t jumped of the cliff which I considered as my longest assignment so far, I instead opted in to enjoying it’s turoquise seawater and clashing waves.

Post Thoughts

Okay, this seems to be the most awkward post ever. Why?

Recently,  a lot of things just keep on coming.  It never stops until I bleed. It never forgives, it never reconsiders. This is just the way it is since then. Its unforgiving nature forces you to get back, fight harder and do better. No reconciliation,  just pure actions.

Basic Mountaineering Course: An Aspirant’s Experience

I wonder how did the aspirants feel about their first basic mountaineering course last week end?

For me, everything still seemed to be vivid. Here’s why.

M.I.C.H.A.E.L.A

IMG_1372I always get myself passionate about anything that brings beauty, essence and empowerment to every individual. Aside from becoming a psychologist someday, I also want to see myself becoming a writer, a model, an artist, a beauty queen, an investigator, martial artist, fitness instructor, an athlete, a volunteer and most recently, to become an ecology traveler and mountaineer. I have done some of these things in the past but for now, I can see myself doing one thing. That is mountaineering.

A Birthday Letter

Happy birthday to you. I know even if your time-line there tells you it’s 24th, I’ll still follow Manila time. 😛

I won’t mention your age because I want them guessing.😉 Nevertheless, I want you to celebrate this year again because you have done so much for us and for me in particular.

Thank you for being my unending guardian. Sometimes I would think you’re probably my mother only that we are born from the same Mama.

I am humbled by your virtual presence and moral support. Whenever I feel lost and everything seems to be not in order, you try your best to put it back in place and reminds me of few things that truly matter. 😍😘Everytime I try so hard to hide 😢, you seemingly feel what’s wrong and then you’d call me 📞 and we both make daydreams 💭together. 😝😂

Did I make you cry na?? Hahaha I love you endlessly! 😘😘😘 I won’t be afraid to face the world because all of you are there. 💪

 

Today, someone across the globe is celebrating her birthday. That someone is no less than a sister of mine. I wish her nothing but the best of life! She deserves it more than anyone else!

Short Escape: RLG Swimming Pool Resort

 

IMG_20160521_093821

Hooray! Getting back to my old self while complying myself to turn drafts into posts- a number of memories and a place at a time.

This time, I’d like to share some of the rarest inland resort in Davao. Choosing an inland resort over beaches is one good idea especially if you would like to have your colleagues to stay overnight or if anyone would love to pass by. Samal Island is quite far so technically, an inland resort near a celebrant’s place is therefore a good choice.
