A Reminder To Hid: LOOK UP

"This media we call social is anything but, when we open our computers and it’s our doors we shut..."

I was browsing through for some entertainment when I came across this video entitled "Look Up" where Gary Turk is talking about the cons of being too immerse in social media. Since it conveys a very good message, I would like to share it with you guys. Please take time to watch until the end and together let us examine ourselves. :)

Minalungao National Park (5.1.2014)

Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Another day spent with mother nature! May 1, 2014 was my dear boyfriend's 24th birthday. Since it's a holiday here in the Philippines ( Labor Day), we set a day trip to Minalungao National Park in General Tinio, Nueva Ecija. According to our forever friend, Wikipedia, Minalungao National Park is "a protected area covering 2,018 hectares centered along the scenic PeƱaranda River bordered on both sides by up to 16-meter high limestone walls in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. It was established in 1967 by virtue of Republic Act No. 5100".

We rented a van to take us to and fro General Tinio, N.E. Actually, the planned time of departure was 5:00 AM, however, there were a lot of things that were bought along the way plus no one from the group really knew the road going there so we indeed up arriving on the site around past 11:00AM. That's after asking a lot of people for directions and hearing different answers. Mind you, it's such a pain in the a** not to know which road to take so better do a lot of research before heading there because it's a remote place and you might get lost in the winding road.  Fast-forward, this was the view that welcomed us there. There were a lot of people already when we arrived so we hurried to find a place we can rent for our stay.
