Sneak Peak: The Start of My Adventures and Wishes for 2012

by lakwatserong tatay

Hello 2012!!!!!....I do expect this year would be more of land travels and most of it will be mountain trips. I really missed trekking and reach every summit of the mountains and the overnight camping specially the "socials at night"....hehehe....Although i do have a one confirmed trip to Leyte this coming April (family trip), that will be my only trip via air and the rest would be via bus, jeep, habal-habal, tricycle or maybe roro transfers...any thing that using land transfers..I do not have a bucket of list that i want to travel but instead it would be a monthly trekking trips in different places and some DIY trips....^_^...
January, 2012 will be ending in few days, i have already visited three towns and two cities.

Here's the Sneak Preview of my January, 2012 Trekking adventures with Tropang Tits & Pips:

January 7: Our Destination are a Day Hike Trip to Mt. Talamitam (Sitio, Bayabasan, Nasugbu, Batangas).

Talamitam, this was around 12nn, but the sun was so cooperate to us and it just give us a few sunlight, although we expect that time it would rain because it was a bit cloudy but luckily we trek up, reach the summit and descent after having lunch at the summit, we just encounter few drops of rain.....were really happy that time....hehehehe...(i'll be doing a separate post for climb so watch for it!!!)

After a grueling dayhike of Mt. Talamitam, one of our unexpected side trips is the river of Brgy. Bayabasan known as Layong Bilog River, were we had freshen up and chillax for an hour, before proceeding to our next destination. (i'll be doing a separate post for this river watch out for it!!!!)

My photo opps @ Hinulugang Taktak Falls
After visiting the resort/place of our desired reception for our youngest son 1st birthday celebration. It come to my mind that time that i've been living to Antipolo for almost 4 years and i've heard so much about this falls and other spots that can be seen in Antipolo, because of that, together with my wife, i encourage him to go to this falls since my wife last visit is when she was on high school (1st year), but as we reach the park and it's falls my wife told me there's been no changes aside from close swimming pool inside on its park, closed stalls and stores, and an almost abandoned park, but we cited few lovers inside the park....hehehehe...^_^.
it's me with my lovely wife...reggie...^_^
Just last January 22, i had also my first food trip, happened at Chick-Boy Chicken at was a family dinner with my kids, my kids nanny and with my wife
My 2012 Wishlist:

As 2011 end, my dreamhouse is almost done, and i wish this year, we could transfer from it, but i hope before we transfer it's already furnished and also we could buy all the necessary things that we will used on our dream's to many to mention.......^_^.

Here's my 2nd wish this year, a telephoto lens (70-300 mm), no matter what's brand but of course, i'm looking for the cheapest brand that is compatible to my cam....^_^. If there's willing to sell their lens like this (syempre dapat in very good condition and mura po!!!) or like to sponsor me to have this dream lens of mine....(meron kaya ?)....

Tele-photo lens (70-300mm) range
The 2nd gadget on my bucket of wishlist is to own a laptop, i wish to have a laptop not just a notebook but it must have at least the capabilities of a desktop...hehehe...^_^... i will used it as my personal unit of course for blogging, and on my trips.

And last on my wishlist for this year 2012, is to have a healthy and happy kids would be always in good health and also my wife would always give me a go signal on each my trips (hehehehe..wish ko talaga yan..) more travels together with friends and of course with my family....and to finish all of my draft post stories and share it all to you .....(medyo marami po kasi talaga...hehehehe) that would be all....
