Another weekend getaway with my former colleagues during my annual vacation to trek one of the scenic mountains in Batangas, Mt. Batulao. Also a great way to greet 2019! It has been more than a year away from home and one of the activity that will relieve me from stresses of working abroad is to be with nature, to be with friends, long drive, bulalo (beef dish from the Philippines. It is a light colored soup that is made by cooking beef shanks and marrow bones until the collagen and fat has melted into the clear broth), enjoying the views and meeting new people.

Mountains are a truly magnificent work of nature. They are art molded intricately into various shapes and sizes. Each of them has a charm that is unique only to them. Some are forbidding. They have secrets no great mountaineer was able to unravel. Others are inviting. They open their worlds wholeheartedly to lost souls hoping to find refuge in their solace. Mt. Batulao is gladly the latter kind of mountain. -
