Effortlessly taken...

Indeed, I realized, it takes no genius to create a masterpiece out of simple casts of shadows and a plane of wild grasses

MT. Apo Sunset: A Glimpse of Eternity

GalangLente correspondent Jay Ian Bello watched (patiently) the ticking of his clock before he was able to witness and capture one of the most beautiful views from the top of Mt. Apo--the sunset. The moment gave him the 'glimpse of eternity' before the sun finally descended below the horizon.

Conquering the Philippine Highest Peak-Mt. Apo

Members of different mountaineering clubs from different places in the Philippines enthusiastically trek on rough and highly inclined (some parts are actually almost vertical) trails of Mt. Apo as they strive to reach the summit that has an elevation of 9,692 feet (2,954 meters) above sea level (highest peak in the Philippines). This physically, emotionally, mentally challenging activity has become an annual tradition by a number of extreme-sports enthusiasts ( local and foreign) that is usually happening during summer particularly in the Lenten season.

Below, Jay Ian Bello, the youngest member of Mars Agri-Ventures & Commodities, Inc. team, delivers a bright smile that seems to be telling he is proud being assigned to manage one of the most important things to consider in Mt. Apo expedition--maintaining cleanliness. He takes full-responsibility for the trashes from their team--non-biodegradable wastes are collected and brought back down for proper disposal to avoid the spot from polluting.

Enduring a very rocky-rough trail as they come closer and closer to the summit...

A Shining Smile From Badjao

An eleven-year old badjao girl (with her sibling) delivers a shining smile after receiving a penny from folks.

Badjao is a popular cultural minority in Southern Philippines who settle along the coastal areas of countrysides. They usually come to cities during holidays particularly during Christmas to ask for some goods--for survival--and return home as holiday seasons end.

The Durian Dome-People's Park, Davao City

This Durian Dome is among the unusual attractions that can be found in one of Davao City's famous tourist (local and foreign) destinations--the People's Park.

FYI: Durian is a popular tropical fruit, particularly in Davao City, that is thought to be the king of all fruits not only because of its size but of its unusual taste as well--known to be the fruit that smells like hell but tastes like heaven.

GalangLente Roams Around The Busy Streets Of Davao City

This young boy is not bothered by the noise of busy streets and disgusting stuff that surround him as if he is taking a rest in his very own home. This is just one of the common views you can experience in one of busiest cities in the Philippines-Davao City.

Visiting My Aunt In The Countryside

Last Holy Week I visited my aunt in the countryside after an almost decade of not being able to go there. I finally saw before my eyes the situation she is in right now and I must say, things are in need to done--and it must be done by me, personally.

With teary-eyes, I took a picture of the house (where I used to live and had been a home for me when I was just a small boy) which is torn, ruined in the span of time.

Right now, my savings is not yet enough for renovation (or building a new one) but I promise to myself to help as soon as I can get an amount that would be enough..
