One Month Before Banaue-Batad-Sagada + Baguio Trip

Exactly 30 days from now, I will be on the road again. One month to go before my Great "Banaue-Batad-Sagada + Baguio" Lakwatsa. I can't wait to finally explore the land of the Ifugaos and Sagadians (wooot!!! I'm really excited with this trip, been doing a countdown since August).

I actually formulated a checklist for this trip...
• Rice Terraces of Banaue, Batad and Sagada
• Tappia Falls
• Bomod-ok Falls
• Sumaguing and Lumiang cave
• Hanging coffins of Echo Valley
• Kiltepan sunrise
• Panag-apoy rituals
• wear a native Ifugao costume
• chew a nga-nga
• photo of rice terraces with P20 bill
• topload on the road
• touch a giant earthworm
• eat a pinikpikan
• eat at Yogurt House
• buy a weaved cloth

This will happen on Oct. 28 to Nov. 2 plus one day extension for Baguio city tour. Grabe, 1 week pala ako gagala.

UPDATE (10/3/11): Batad-Banaue leg of this trip is cancelled due to the destruction of the road and bridges to Banaue brought by the two recent strong tropical storms. nakakalungkot! Sagada-Baguio na lang ang trip na ito.

An Unforgettable Strange Encounter

"You Filipinos are very 'rocky' people, because you have a president who 'robs' you and a first lady who 'robs' you more"  - Ninoy Aquino
I never considered the Marcos regime a great one. A dictatorship filled with human rights suppression and immoral plunder of the nation's wealth is a big no no to me. For some, Marcos brought greatness to the country. But for me, he was a president who did dirty tricks just to attain his disciplined and progressive nation, the end simply does not justify the means.
