While other males choose to celebrate their 21st by staging a grand party with their relatives and friends, I have a bigger, more extreme plan for mine. I choose to celebrate my 21 years of happy existence up on the roof of the Philippine Archipelago, I choose to climb Mt. Apo. Actually it’s a Talomo-Apo megatraverse plus a Dulang-Dulang-Kitanglad traverse, a weeklong celebration on the famed Mindanao 1-2-3. It is my biggest dream climb and I want to fulfill it the soonest.
I already have my plane tickets now, just bought them from the recent Piso Fare of Cebu Pacific.

This post is meant to express my great excitement for my upcoming Mindanao 1-2-3 adventure, especially Mt. Apo which can really make me the happiest man celebrating his 21st year. In fact, climbing Mt. Apo is one of the reasons why I’m not getting a passport until now. I remember signing a pact with myself (way back after graduating high school) that I will not travel around the globe until I have set my foot on its summit. Well, mukhang malapit na akong lumabas ng bansa…
