This makes me happy. 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 680 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 11 trips to carry that many people.

Before I even start, the title is not original but it tells everything about this blog. There’s this one girl, a very sound girl. Or not. She fell in love with a man ten years elder than her. It was actually an epic love tale. It all started as what they call a whirlwind love affair. The first time they met is not special because they encountered through a friend. Perhaps the timing was wrong. Or they were simply not meant to be.

So i’ll start.

June, 2012

It embarked on with a pen and a tissue. The man was really aggressive but don’t get me amiss. He was a genuinely funny guy. Whenever he talks, I laugh. It was like the first in forever that I ever laughed even in a very feeble joke. He’s not even straining to be funny. I have never thought that day, my life would alter forever. I will not try to explain what happened. But if I can delineate it, clearly, he was the prince who swept me off my feet. It was absolutely magical.

But just like every love story, it came through ups and down until one day, the fairy tale is over. Considerably, it wasn’t even very real to begin with.

Just like that…

Itinerary:

2:00AM – Departure from Pasay terminal going to Alas-Asin, Mariveles, Bataan.

As part of preparation, I read blogs about this mountain. I read it’s steep, assault, gradual assault, strong wind, but nevertheless, beautiful. This is classified as a Major climb and so major preparation I did. This is my first major climb this year. Definitely, not a bad one to start with.

Welcome to my Tarak adventures.

The trail is covered with trees causing the trek to be a little easier because it is not a direct sunlight.

Touched down the Papaya River. This was where we pitched our tents.

After approximately 3 hours, we finally touched down the Papaya River. This was where we pitched our tents.

You can also use a filter if you want to use it as a trail water.

The mystical Papaya River. So calming and relaxing view. This can also be a water source for cooking and stuff.

WOW. Look at that. One of the many wonders of Tarak.

The most rewarding thing after a tiring 2am-4am trek to the summit is to see the sun shining. I feel like I am closer to it.

I can't help it. :)

I can’t help it. This is beyond passion and horizon.

This is one of the famous rocks at the ridge.

At the ridge where you can also camp. But this area has strong winds especially at night. You have to make sure your tent has pegs.

And then again, I have found something worth sharing.
You can click on this link to read the most part.

He loves your soul.

This one made me believe and hope for something.

He likes you before he likes to look at you.
Your beauty isn’t first for him. It’s something he enjoys, but not something he expects. He sees you as a soul, a counterpart, a person. He doesn’t see you as the object of his desires or the prize he loves to mount in the living room

.
Maybe right now, I really can’t tell if my man is the right one for me. But when I read articles like this, it makes me hope for our tomorrow. For our future together.

Hun and I were just talking about this things. Looking back to when we started, it made me realize, we were good without each other. But now that we have each other, we are at our best together.
