It’s good to discover that the best theme park in the Philippines, Enchanted Kingdom, added new rides since the last time I went here.

I haven't tried this one since my officemates told me that it's quite boring inside.

RUNNING: How To Stay Safe on Trails?


I've been into trail running since January this year and really enjoyed the experience. As my previous post, beautiful scenery, majestic views of nature, a lot of greens and fresh air awaits for those who'll first try the awesome experience of trail running. I want to share to you an article written by Lewis G. Maharam, MD, FACSM about running safe on trails.



Keeping a few key points in mind will help make your off-road experience more enjoyable.
Running in the great outdoors can be an awesome adventure. However, trail running comes with a unique set of challenges and obstacles every runner should consider. Here are some tips for injury prevention and first aid. 
* Watch where you are going—this advice seems simple enough, but it can be easy to forget that you’re not running on smooth paved roads. Beware of tree roots, rocks and other obstacles. 


* Always tell someone when and where you’re going to run, and carry a cell phone. 
* If you are prone to blisters, make sure your trail running shoes fit properly. A coat of Vaseline on your feet paired with synthetic non-cotton socks works well. If you do get a blister, keep your running shoes on until you can wash your foot and drain the blister. Be sure to leave the skin on and bandage it with antibiotic ointment. 
* Ankle sprains can be serious business. If you can walk on a sprained ankle, move slowly. Sprains can be great pretenders, and many times an X-ray is necessary to rule out a fracture. 
* A poison ivy encounter is good and bad news. Good news: You probably won’t feel it for most of your trail run. The bad news is you WILL feel the itchy red rash hours later. Although calamine lotion can help relieve the discomfort, a trip to your doctor for a shot of Celestone works wonders and decreases the course of a poison ivy reaction by days. 
* Snake bites on the trails aren’t all that common but can happen. Snakes to watch out for include: rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouth water moccasins and coral snakes, but a bite from any snake warrants an immediate trip to the emergency room. Try to note what the snake looked like to tell the doctor. Apply a cool compress over the wound, immobilize the area and keep it positioned below your heart. If you have a bandage, wrap it approximately two to four inches above the bite (between the bite and your heart) to slow the venom moving through your system.

RUNNING: Amazing Run 2 Run Adventure Familiarization Run

RIZAL, PHILIPPINES. April 07, 2013, Sunday was the PIMCO's familiarization run for Amazing Run 2 Run Adventure Trail Marathon. This event has a a very cool concept as runners need to have a buddy all through out the race.

This is a special race event for running in tandem, the running buddies, running couples, running friends, running parent-son/daughter, running brothers/sisters, a team of two. The main rule is you have to leave the starting gate together and you have to finish the race together.



Participants must register in teams of 2 members. They can be same genders or mixed genders. You have to find the best combination for you – either male/female, young/old, male/male, female/female. Make sure to get a running partner with the same pacing, “walang iwanan”, you have to arrive at each station at the same time and the finish line at the same time. There is no division just one set of winners for each Category.



6:30 am was the call time for those who wants to experience the familiarization run. "Many were called, but few were chosen." The familiarization run was opened for those who were registered for the event. But even though a lot already registered, only few participants attended the said familiarization run which gives attendees more time to be with the trail/nature and converse/interact with one another.

This will be muddy on the race day. (i guess :)) hahaha and i wish)

After finishing the 10-11 kilometers of trail, we got a chance to roam around Ten Cents to Heaven. Located at Sitio Mayagay II, Tanay Rizal, Ten Cents to Heaven is an ideal place to unwind and be recharged  from the fast-paced life of the city. It provides different activities from camping, trekking, to zip lining, enjoying the 4x4 ride and waterfalls sight seeing. Visitor's can also enjoy the 360-degree view of magnificent Sierra Madre Mountains and Laguna de bay.
