History repeats itself as me and my childhood friend Romel De Vera was at the same place 30 years ago, sitting on a BMX (this time its original and sad to say it’s not ours haha, thanks Kuya Alvin!) as we spend an afternoon at the back of Folk Arts Theater together with the 80’s BMXers FB group in celebration of World BMX Day 2017.
It was an awesome afternoon as guys whose ages were more or less the same like us were all over the place, biking, freestylin, hitting the ramp, making selfies and groupies, or simply chit-chatting with one another while reminiscing the past. Nakita ko din dun mga idol ko sa ramp at mga nakakarera namin sa Jammin Jay at sa Philcite nung araw haha!
Good thing our client/ride buddy Kuya Alvin invited us to attend the event, ok lang daw kahit wala kaming BMX, at least daw eh magkitakita at magka bonding ulit kami.
I was surprise that I could still able to do the Infinity Roll, yun nga lang nung pinaulit sa akin para ma videohan eh wala na sablay na kase hilo na ako haha! Unlike the two young flatlanders from Mariveles, Bataan na nandun din sa place exhibiting their amazing spinning talent on BMX, wala silang mga hilo hehe!
Can’t wait for the 2018 celebration haha!
Watch my video and see the radness and awesomeness that day!

I think I heard the word SHIT a thousand times that day haha! Our bodies were unprepared for this task kaya ayun katakot-takot na sakit ng katawan ascending and descending (actually until now, 2 days na nakalipas sakit pa din hita at binti ko haha!), 1278 foot elevation ba naman, tapos 3 hours kami nag hike and sometimes I crawl kase nakakatakot madulas sa mga matatalas na batuhan! Hirap ng trail grabehh! At summit 2 we need to climb via rope yung 20 foot peak kaya talaga naman total workout, ngayon lang talaga tumagaktak ng todo pawis ko sa buong katawan haha!
But this one of a kind experience is liberating ika nga ni Romel na kasama kong umakyat. Sobrang fulfilling nung nasa summit 2 na kami or yung peak na. Balewala yung init ng araw kase ansarap tignan ng 360 degrees yung mga kabundukan ng Sierra Madre.
Need to go on a diet as you can see on my photos, yung tummy ko lutang na lutang haha! Because the Tres Separados are planning to climb more mountains in the near future haha!
Here is our adventure video at Mount Pamitinan
Just my two cents on what’s happening in Marawi.
Yung pelikulang Suicide Squad, na they recruit hardened criminals to fight the villains and eventually save the world!
What if the Duterte government recruit hardened criminals na gusto ng magbago at bumawi sa kanilang masamang ginawa at handang lumaban sa mga Maute which in return eh pedeng gumaan ang kanilang sentensya o magka pabuya (cash from bounty) if ever sila makatalo sa mga kalaban.
