It's been a while since i made my last post for my travels, coz' im really having a hard time to make all of this draft post, due to my work load, different weekly and monthly activities. So i decided to make another sneak preview post of my past activities for the month of love......^_^.
First stop: Advance Celebration of Valentines Day...
An overnight stay at Lancaster Suites at Mandaluyong together with my wife and two kids, Kuya Gian and Ate Gayle. Aside from staycation within the Metro, we had mall hopping within the vicinity and food trippin escapades.

My 1st ever organize group trek, happened last February 18...were 13 tripper/trekkers/spelunker...(who said that 13 is a bad luck number)...Even though i considered myself as a pro in trekking, i was still afraid that time organizing my first trip trek together with a couple persons, most of them were my friends and colleagues and some were invitees. But luckily it went good and all of the X-plorers that time were satisfied on what they have experience and i was really happy to hear that from them and will be doing it again with me if i ever organize again another trip....(nagorganize nga ulit ako...Mt. Pinatubo via Old Trail naman...just last March 24)...(i'll be having a separate post for our trek to Mt. Manalmon...)

It was Sunday (Feb.26), together with Ichan, will be attending our first ever festival experience just right here in the metro. The Caracol Festival, but due to lack of information about the festival, we met so early and found out that the festival will be happening @ 4pm that day. So, for us not to be bored that day, we decided to have food trippin experience at Ongpin, one of the food haven in Manila. Armed with daypacks and camera's we proceed......(watch out for our Ongpin Experience.....)

|It's me @ Sta.Cruz Church|
The second church we visited was also built wayback 1640's, in honor of its the Patroness Nuestra Señora del Santo Rosario, this church was detroyed during British invasion and rebuilt by mix native and chinese mestizaje after British invasion. The church baroque look was rebuilt from World War II ruins and has re-dedicated to the first filipino Patron Saint, San Lorenzo Ruis. The church annual fiesta usually takes every last Sunday of October. (i'll be sharing its history and some pictures of this church...)

This festival is one of the particular event where the youth of Makati, expresses their creativity and artistic sides while combining the importance of protecting our Mother Nature.
