The Model and the Geek!

September 1, 2009

Inspired by the Beached Whale post by thirdworldgeek, I started to dig up my iphoto and found a picture of my friend model (not her true occupation) and I at Samal Island in Davao. No topless shots were taken there (sorry guys), just some family and friends who were having a great time and enjoying the sun and the sand.

I tried to borrow a DSLR camera from a friend of mine, but, I failed, so I settled for this point and shoot Sony cybershot that was lying on our table. Geez! That was my camera. Boy, this picture sure brought a lot of wholesome memories. We spent four days in Davao where we hiked up Camp Sabros for zipline, injured our muscles from white water rafting, and ate our hearts out at the cheapest restaurants in the city.

Anem-Anem

August 19, 2009

That is the literal translation of the habal-habal that I found myself riding earlier.  If you’re still confused, six = anim.  If you still don’t get it, check your lineage, you might be a walking fungi. I could probably use the crass tagalog word used to describe the act and although the effect would be of shockingly pornographic value, I prefer my writing to be creatively softcore.

Anyway, I had to ride a habal-habal for 15 kilometers just to reach Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig, Surigao Del Sur.  I have to say 5 persons riding one single motorcycle is suicidal.  Throw in a very rough terrain and a mountainous trail and that would be enough to make the bravest man’s sphincter to cower.  Hehehe, go easy on the imagery.

It was such a pain in the ass.  Literally.

But some things, like world peace and the Tinuy-an Falls are worth it.  Here’s a pic.
