Pagsanjan Trip

geely washed for the nth time?Im going to Pagsanjan today (to attend a seminar for 4 days) riding my old but sturdy scooter Geely. I usually ride with a group but this would be the first time Im gonna do a (long distance – approx. 100kms) solo ride. I will be traversing the scenic and curvaceous roads of Antipolo, Teresa, Morong, Baras, Tanay, and Pililla (all towns of Rizal province) before reaching Laguna towns of Mabitac, Siniloan, Pangil, Pakil, Paete, Kalayaan, Lumban then finally Pagsanjan. Whew! Its gonna be our (Geely and Me) longest ride ever. My mind is set on doing this ride around two weeks ago, then suddenly Typhoon Cosme shows up. Then I have no choice but to go to plan B. (via bus) Woke up this morning, do some stretching outside and found out the cloud is somehow clear and the sun was shining on the horizon. “What a perfect day to ride” I say: Then it all goes back to plan A. I just hope there’s internet connection to the seminar venue so that I can update this post with photos and stories about my Pagsanjan adventure. Ok see you later. Wish me Luck! Last Update 24 May 2008 I just came back from Pagsanjan yesterday. And boy it was one helluvah (solo) ride. It was fun and exciting. It took me almost 3 hours to get there, including the stopovers. I have no pressure whatsoever on the speed I want (Geely) to go. I can go fast, slow or stop whenever I please. I guess that’s one of the advantage when you go solo. Good thing it doesn’t rain that hard the whole trip last Monday. It just drizzle when I’ve reached Caliraya until I have finally set my tires on Pagsanjan. The return trip yesterday was much more faster. I spent around 2 hours on the road. Unfortunately Cosme(the typhoon) finally caught me and decided to gave me a shower on the zigzag roads of Teresa, Rizal where there’s no shelter to go under. I have under my seat a raincoat which I decided not to wear but instead placed it on top of my bag which has my seminar certificate inside (much more important hehe). So by the time I got home I was soaking bigtime, but nevertheless happy! In my upcoming posts I would share about my seminar experience and the Pagsanjan Rapids. Watch out for it. A never before seen videos of the popular bangkeros and the story behind them.

Time is so damn fast. I can’t hardly believe has been online for two years now. In which I have 221 posts, 4 pages, 11 categories, 366 tags, 28,440 spam comments, and 107 approved comments. (courtesy of my WordPress Dashboard)

I could say it was a very wonderful and exhilarating experience for me. This site has its ups and downs. It went up to pagerank 4, plummeted to zero and now its PR2. Whew! Just like a roller coaster ride. But still is here to stay. While maintaining this site I have gained vast knowledge in blogging,  meet a lot of extraordinary people both online and offline, and somehow put some moolahs on my barren wallet.

I love you for that! I don’t know how to live without my blog anymore. had became part of me. Basically its my virtual life. Thanks to all who supported this site. (you know who you are) I promise to continue posting interesting articles, photos, videos and jokes for all of you. Maraming Salamat Po! at Mabuhay ang!

P.S. I’d like to give credits to all the persons who greeted me on top! Thanks guys! 🙂 Actually they are all members of Photobucket (that includes me). You’ll find them when you search for the keyword “peace man”.
