Mt. Manalmon and Bayukbok Cave, Bulacan

Life is worth all the struggles when you look back on what you lost
and realize that what you have regained is so much better.

After the hardship of crossing a raging river, trekking under a scorching heat, and death-defying spelunking, I can say my Manalmon experience has become one of my most memorable chapters in mountain climbing.

The more you experience, the more you understand

I wish I could say it gets easier. But it doesn’t. All I know is pain has always been part of life. But believe that even in your most miserable state, you still have that strength to smile. That even in times of confusion, you still carry the gift to understand. There is no part of your life that you can rewind without pain. Pain helps open your eyes to sufferings around you. It is a teacher that helps you grow. And take comfort that life does not always get better by chance but by change often rooted in pain.

Gino's Brick Oven Pizza

Gino’s is a well-known pizza parlor in Katipunan owned by Atenista Jutes Templo and his wife Cello. Gino’s was named after their son. But even though it has been in existence for years, I haven’t tried their Neoplitan pizzas, not until they opened their second branch in Makati, which is gaining more popularity than their first branch.

The brick ovens


House salad

Burrata caprese


Bianca verde

Bacon gouda

Nutella soup

I’m tired of worrying. I only want to fret on trivial matters like how come Cello’s delicious donuts not the main desserts of Gino’s? Or why does Gino’s burrata has a nipple?
