On a high

and also tired.

bonifacio monument in fort bonifacio

friday night was the start of my three months basic mountaineering course (BMC) with Yapak Mountaineers, Inc (YMI) and it was also the first night of our weekly runs in Fort Bonifacio. coming from cinemanila for watching a Penelope Cruz-starred and Pedro Almodovar-helmed Volver, i breezed from mrt cubao to guadalupe only to be stopped by a loooong line of people exiting the guadalupe station (it took me about seven minutes). and as a result, i was late for the 7 pm run, good thing i wasn't the only one, even some members of the committee were also late hehehe.


it was, i think, at least a 2 km run. a light run but still a tiring one. and we have to do this again on the next day and the day after it and the weekends after it until october 2007.


and there are movies to watched and badminton games and a couple more hours of malling. and of course the lectures (red cross, rappelling, water safety, etc) and our training climbs culminating in the Mt. Pulag summit.


all of a sudden, my weekends are full!


while waiting for the others
last sunday afternoon, i brought my camera, and i captured some shots while jogging and doing our stuffs (di pa ako nagsawa eh araw-araw nandito ako hehehe).

prelude to sunset

we'll be having our first training climb this coming friday at Mt. Batulao in the boundary of Cavite and Batangas, and it's going to be exciting as we will do it via a night trek. yes, night trek for our first climb! coolness!

i am keeping my fingers crossed that i can finish the entire training and without sacrificing the other schedules that i have (me make up climb naman hehehe) for the next three months.

ramdam ba ang excitement? c",)

Nice photos you got here...
Mountain climbing is an interesting hobby. If only my time permits to do it, I probably would indulge myself as well...

I've tried mountain climbing... Makiling yata. I was such a klutz and a burden to my teammates so I quit. :) Too bad though because climbing is such an exciting sport. Good luck on your training Zherwin!

these are pretty good shots bro. Golden was actually a good take. much like tikoy aguiluz' approach on the the high rise makati (making it look like new york) on the opening scene of Segurista.

good luck sa mountain climbing!

Go! Go! Go! Actually just climbing up and down those MRT station stairs should be work out enough! Add ka lang ng 10kg na backpack..*hingal*

dodongflores, yes it is an interesting hobby and i think you wouldn't be surprised that photography is my real motivation why i'll try this.

zherwin said...

intsik, hmm segurista = michelle aldana hehehe. wow, you remember that shot ha, ako di ko sya maalala or maybe i am not really an aguiluz fan

zherwin said...
