Happy Thursday: Food Truck Manila – QC

If you’re from Manila/QC you’d probably know that The Food Truck Manila -QC is the newest addition to the food parks around QC.

Food Truck Manila – QC is located along Kamias St., in QC.

Many establishments have opened along, or around Maginhawa St., and this is the newest member of the family.

FTM-QC opens at 5PM and closes at 2AM. It is the perfect hangout and chill place for barkadas. They have a lot of different stalls, that sell a variety of dishes, and deserts. I didn’t have that much photos during because I was too busy vlogging. ūüė¶ Sorry, blog. ¬†Next time, I’ll make sure to have enough photos for my blog. haaay.

Last Thursday Night, my friends and I met again. (finally, after eons! I’m so sorry guys, I love you!). We had a good few hours of catching-up #KudaIsLyfu

Anw, here is my 2nd Vlog, hope you guys enjoy!

NOT Pirates of the Caribbean

My friends and I were supposed to watch “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”. But by some random text message, we got to Urbiztondo Beach in La Union. (*Ahem! Hello, Gelica!)

We left Pangasinan at around 1:30PM and arrived in LU at 4PM. As expected, there was traffic and a lot (but not so much) people in the beach. We didn’t swim though bec we didn’t want to get wet. ??? HAHAHAHA. IKR. Anw, here is a short quick edit of our trip to La Union!

Hello VLOG NAMBAWAN!

Dashadowlost in Baguio

Took a quick trip to Baguio with friends to start the year and I guess it’s the best idea ever. Didn’t regret it! Well except for the burned gas!!! The car’s not that efficient anymore. ūüė¶ but anw…

I guess we could say that we actually waited for the New Year just so we could push through with this trip. It was planned a looooong time ago. Chazzz 

Sometime in the middle of 2016, my friends and I were planning a trip to Baguio to look for leather jackets at thrift stores (Sounds sosyal, right? UKAY-UKAY! HAHAHAHAHA). It never happened because we all got busy and went back to our old boring lives to study back in Manila/Baguio.

Fast forward to new year’s eve, it was decided that we shall push through with the trip. And so we did!

Fierce fierce-an. @ CJH

We met up at around 12nn, had a quick lunch at Jam’s place and went straight ahead to Cordillera! It was fun and wasn’t that traffic since most people were already driving down to go back to their respective homes.

I actually wanted to go to Baguio sometime at the end of 2016 but I was too lazy to drive and people from Baguio Continue reading

Dashadowlost: Cabongaoan Beach, Burgos, Pangasinan

So last year, my sister and I made a quick trip to Burgos, Pangasinan to cap off 2016. It was supposed to be a getaway with my 2 sibs and our 5 dogs but ate decided to stay behind since there would be no one left to guard the house. Elijah and I still pushed through with the trip. We were supposed to leave for Burgos at 3 in the morning to catch the sunrise BUUUUUTTTT we both overslept so we left at around 6 o’clock in the morning.

It was a 4 hour drive (since we left late, and there were also a lot of tourists heading towards Alaminos, and Bolinao (other beaches on the same area). Not many people know about Cabongaoan beach Continue reading

Mt. Batolusong

Processed with VSCO with p4 preset

Mt. Batolusong is located in Brgy. San Andres, Tanay, Rizal. It is a 1-2hour drive from Manila (depending on the traffic). My friends and I met at McDonald’s in front of Trinoma, and left at around 5AM. Along the way, we could already see the Sea of Clouds. It’s amazing, and I got a little more excited. We reached the jump off site before 6AM.

We started the trek a little past 6 and reached Duhatan Ridge just in time to capture the beauty of the majestic Sea of Clouds. It was my first time to hike so it all makes the experience a little more special. The view was truly breath-taking. So was the hike, LITERALLY breath-taking. I managed to blurt out “ayoko na” several times along the way but still continue to drag myself up to the peak which is 780m ASL. The trail was almost 5km long, and was rated 2-3/9 but since it rained the night before I think that made it a little bit harder (or baka ako lang ¬†kasi first timer).

We payed Php20 pesos at the Barangay Hall (+ another Php20 for the Rangyas Peak).¬†Some hikers don’t continue the hike up to the peak and enjoy the scenic view from Mapatag Plateau. It is another 1hr hike or so from the plateau to Rangyas peak. You’ll be passing something like a bamboo trail, and will be needing to “rock climb” to reach the peak. A cold, and fresh breeze greeted us upon reaching the peak.

We stayed there for a few minutes to appreciate the view, as well as to take a short break. On our way to back to trail to Kay-ibon falls, we passed by a small “store” selling fresh buko. Again, rested for a few minutes and continued to trail for the falls.

We stayed a few minutes, had our snacks, and continued for the Sangab Cave. It wasn’t advisable to swim and explore the cave at that time since the water wasn’t clear due to the rain the night before. If ever, you’ll be needing extra gears such as headlamps and additional payment for the tour.

We walked our way back to the Brgy. Hall where we had our lunch a little past 1, cleaned ourselves up as the rain was falling. Then went home past 2PM.

It was indeed a fun, and fulfilling experience, especially for my first hike. Will definitely go hiking again… SOON!
