Birthday body pains.  
I guess this is what adults say when they'd rather not even know it's their birthday. Haha. Seriously? My last 'teen' already? I am almost in disbelief. XD Well, life goes on. Time ticks on, and we're never getting any younger than we are at the moment. :)

And this post is pretty much aptly titled. The day of my birthday was also... *drumroll*... the day of our P.I. 100 (Life and Works of Rizal) fieldtrip to Banahaw! Happy birthday, indeed.

May I just say that I am a huge, and I mean HUUUUGE fan of clouds and the bright, blue sky?

Pseudo-autumn trees, hohoho~ :P

I think it's a tiny bit cheesy to take photos of things like this, but what the heck. XD

Ito po ang tinatawag na pinto ng kaluluwa."

A friend bought me one of these things (the necklace with the triangle-shaped charm on it). Kind of reminds you of Yami Bakura's millennium ring, huh? :P

Well in a nutshell, we climbed one heck of a mountain (not entirely literally)--which may I say drained the life out of me. I've never been one for strenuous activities--definitely NOT the athletic type here. But the main attraction of the fieldtrip, Husgado, made me feel nervous as hell. I don't know where the anxiety came from, really. I wasn't claustrophobic, neither was I asthmatic, but I started crying when we started crawling into the mouth of the tiny, tiny cave. It was really so cramped inside, even I (who people consider to be pretty petite) had a difficult time squeezing myself into the cracks. My head bumped onto one of the rocks overhead, and my left arm carelessly brushed one of the lighted candles.

When I left the cave however, I was scot-free. My arms and legs were dirty from all the cave soil, but not one bruise or scratch was on my body. Amazing. Guess that's my birthday gift. XD

Thereafter, we went to the stream, but not before encountering the steep stairs (where you'd literally hold onto the rails with two hands for dear life) leading to it. Talk about torture. :))

Then again, experience is unlike any other. I may complain of fatigue and worn-out muscles, but I'll definitely say I had fun. :)

Love the pictures, Tash! So pretty! <3

Aww, this post reminded me of our own PI100 Banahaw fieldtrip a few years ago. :3 Buti nalang Too bad we didn't get to experience the Husgado. 8D And I agree--nakamamatay 'yung matarik na stairs. 8DD

Anyway, I'm glad you had fun on your birthday! ;)

Hahaha! I've been meaning to ask you this, since you kind of mentioned this (Wednesday?) 4 to 7 PM class you were lazy to attend... I'm guessing this is P.I. 100... handled by Aragon, no less? XD

I'll say, it actually wasn't so scary inside *false alarm* since there were candlelight and local guides that would assist you. And, medyo sabay-sabay kami pumasok sa cave e. XD Plus, the distance to be traveled isn't very far. :D I imagine it to be a very different experience without the candlelight, the guides, and my classmates. Can't really imagine groping my way out of the cave. >.<

And for the stairs... bakal na ba 'yung naabutan niyong handrails noon? XD Sabi kasi ng blockmate ko, noong pumunta siya dati, tali lang talaga. O: Kaya pagewang-gewang daw sila. :))

Oh, actually, no. Summer kami pinakuha ng PI100, and we were under Sir Esguerra (nagtuturo pa ba siya ngayon?). I was talking about our HistoII class (with the unholy 5:30-7PM sched), but yeah, it was handled by Sir Aragon (the one and only XD). Is he your PI100 prof? So I'm guessing he still hasn't changed at all? 8D

Okay naman pala sa loob, with the guides and the candlelight. Pero 'yung pagpasok sa loob ng cave talaga ang palagay kong torture eh. ;D (Lalo na't hindi ako petite. Haha.)

Hindi pa, tali lang talaga siya noon! 8D Maswerte kayo at bakal na pala ngayon. :D Dati kasi, kahit may tali, hindi parin siya enough na support, so pakiramdam mo mahuhulog ka parin 'pag nahipan ng hangin. :))

So, nandun pa ba si Suprema? haha. ;D

OHEMGEE. I knew it. :)) Basta kinatatamaran pasukan, si Sir Aragon na 'yun! HAHAHA. 8D (Okay, ang sama ko lang XD) I really can't imagine him teaching Histo II though, 'cause P.I. 100 (Life and Works of BONIFACIO) seems to be his forte. =)) Well just to give you a hint, he dances Lady Gaga in class. O__O

That's kind of true. Super struggle makalabas! >.< Hahaha! :)) Hindi ko mabuhat sarili kong weight. XD Curiously, why didn't you enter the Husgado? :)

Trueeee! Kahit nga bakal ngayon, some still climb the stairs on all fours. O:

And yes, she's still there. 8D
Minaminacchi on March 11th, 2011 12:58 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, exactly. :)) Hindi naman ako delingkwenteng estudyante noon (medyo lang 8D) pero bilang talaga ang mga beses na pumasok ako sa Histo II. :)) Dancing Lady Gaga while talking about the Life and Works of Bonifacio?? Bagong subject?? :)))))) Well, he really didn't lecture much about Asia & the World. Actually, we think the course title of our HistoryII class should've been Divinity 101. 'Cause you could get free past life readings and such. :))))) (Nawa'y 'di niya mabasa ang mga pinagsusulat natin dito. 8D Dapat pala nag-censor tayo 'no... too late, though. 8D) So, is he still not giving any exams? ;D

Well, ang dami naming mga kasabay na ibang sections, so 'yung ibang sections lang ang pinapasok sa Husgado while 'yung iba (tulad namin), pinagliwaliw nalang sa ilog buong umaga. :)))

Ayyyy. I'm guilty of doing that at one point. :)))

Wow, I just realized I never replied to this comment na. XD

I'm thinking it's okay we didn't censor this para may reference na ang mga student na gustong mag-research tungkol sa kanilang future prof. 8-) Hihihi. :> (Peace, Sir! :P) ... pero 'di pa niya binibigay 'yung classcards namin, baka bawiin niya 'yung grade ko. D8 HAHAHAHA. =))

Hello ate Tash! Remember me pa? Yung sa family reunion? K, paulit ulit na ko sa pagsasabi nun. Ang astig po ng banner mo. Did you made it po ba? Hi po ulet. Saka you have those breath-taking photographies. Gusto ko nga po maging photographer e.

Re: Hello
Oh hi, Yvette! Mayroon ka rin palang LJ? :D Yup, I usually make my graphics here, unless stated otherwise. :)

Heehee, thank you! :"> I feel touched. But I believe I'm not that good, really. :)
