Now when me and my buddies were in High School, we used to hang out and/or hike Mt. Makiling just for the heck of it. I remember enjoying it and we carried out the activity up until college.
Now I'm out of college, working and pretty much an out-of-shape white collar dude that sits in front of a PC. Now that I've a new writing gig, one of my first assignments was to go to Mt. Makiling's tourist spots. I haven't climbed in ages and I thought that I might collapse or something like that midway. At least I've made it through Flatrocks but only half-way. I've been warned by the Forest Rangers that the trail was muddy as it rained throughout the weekends. I thought they were exaggerating but when I got to the trail itself, it was indeed very muddy (knee-deep muddy to be exact).
So I contacted my editor and said that the trail was, for awhile, inaccessible so I had to turn around and be advised on what to do next.
We then postponed some of the Mt. Makiling spots for another day (summer perhaps) but the trip made me realized that 1. My body is not what it used to be, 2. listen to forest rangers, they know better and 3. I've gotta start slimming down again.
In other news, I'm excited about this:
Revoltech GUNBUSTER! News from TOMOPOP btw.
Nono can't be far behind :D
