Recently went up north for a trip to iLocos Sur following ATP members Mdm.Kate Monte Carlo, Dindi Tan and Krizia. They were invited to do their advocacy and join the parade during the World Aids Day organized by the municipal town of Navarcan and also we spend some time at Krizia's hometown Gregorio Del Pilar for their 114th Tirad Pas anniversary , a small town 1 and half and hour ride to the top of the mountain. It was a very eye opening as it was my first time going out far from the Metro Manila. Suddenly there's beach, sea, mountain, jungle, cliffs, big rocks, rivers. Very unusual to see an empty landscape facing the sea, as far as the eye can see its very soothing for the soul. The soft wind from the South China Sea, its hardcore serenity. Then went up all the way to the mountains, the breeze of fresh air mountain, my lungs and nose was crying with joy, free from tricycles and jeepneys discharge. For a few days we're free from the internet, facebook and kind of off the grids and totally in mother nature's embrace. Until few days later coming back to the city and was greeted with the Christmas shopping rush traffic, one with the noise again.
