BIKE
Last Sunday, August 26, me and my brother together with my cousin, went to Taipei to witness the game of our very own Philippine team (Smart-Gilas) versus the USA at the34th William Jones Cup Basketball Tournament. But before we go on the venue of the said event, we roamed the city first. We visited the Taipei Bus Station, yes, the bus station. Unlike the ordinary bus station, it is located inside a Shopping Mall, including the ticketing area.

Taipei City Bus Station Ticketing Area


But the one thing that captured and caught my attention is this art & design outside the Mall.






I don't know what does this art called is, but i really really like it.

And when I asked my Chinese friend, what it is called?

He answered me without thinking twice with this word.....


"BIKE'S".


(OO nga naman!)


The Ten Commandments of Mother Earth
(From an Anonymous Author)


I. Thou shalt love and honour the Earth for it blesses
thy life and governs thy survival.

II. Thou shalt keep each day sacred to the Earth and
celebrate the turning of its seasons.

III. Thou shalt not hold thyself above other living
things nor drive them to extinction.

IV. Thou shalt give thanks for thy food, to the creatures
and plants that nourish thee.

V. Thou shalt educate thy offspring for multitudes of people
are a blessing unto the Earth when we live in harmony.


VI. Thou shall not kill, nor waste Earth's riches upon
weapons of war.

VII. Thou shalt not pursue profit at the Earth's expense
but strive to restore its damaged majesty.

VIII. Thou shalt not hide from thyself or others the
consequences of thy actions upon the Earth.

IX. Thou shalt not steal from future generations by
impoverishing or poisoning the Earth.

X. Thou shalt consume material goods in moderation so all
may share the Earth's bounty."




This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people ...

MOUNTAINEERING 'KUNO' EXPERIENCE
The last time I hiked a mountain was when i'm in college and I was 17 then. Mt. Maculot is the first mountain I hiked, well, second actually to my place in Batangas. In our barangay we have this so-called mountain full of Java plum or duhat, some cashews & other unknown trees that bears edible fruit, actually part ata siya ng Tagaytay ridge and three peaks din siya. When I was a kid, me and my kins always went up there to gather plums and some fruits that is unknown to me but can be eaten. At the top of that mountain you can glanced the Taal Basilica at the south, the Balayan Bay at the west, the Batangas Electric & Calaca Old Cemetery at the North and a vast coconut trees on the east. I remember those old times na nagpapaunahan kami sa pag-akyat sa first peak kahit na medyo rocky ang daan hanggang makarating ng 3rd peak and then sisigaw ng ubod lakas, as if na maririnig ang boses namin sa buong Lemery. Also we put marked on a Java plum tree para next year, we knew where and whats tree, bore the sweetest 'duhat' and cashew na rin. I dont know why in that part of the mountain only Java plum & cashew tree dominates the entire range, kung meron mang Mango or Santol, ravine ang babagsakan mo kapag nahulog ka. Also at that mountain, I took glanced for the very first time what the Hollies & Tobacco look liked. As a growing kid, we always went up there every summer. And the feeling, for a kid, just HAPPY because we had a plenty of fruits in our baskets to share with.

Moving on, when I was 17, I joined a group of mountaineers 'kuno' in our barangay and our baptism of fire to show our trailing skills is to be at Mt. Maculot. One of my reasons why I joined is that, to proved if that mountain really had had a gigantic lice that can eat you to death.  I remembered kasi my childhood days, whenever my mom wanted to clean up my head by pulling lice out of  it and I when refused, she always said that, "those lice in my head will flew me off to that mountain and will be eaten up by an enormous lice." She also made up stories that made me believed why that mountain called Maculot. (Siya na ang storyteller!). The time we came in Cuenca where I can saw that mountain in 'malapitan', I was amazed on how beautiful it is and realized how huge it is compared to what we usually hiked back when we were kids. And there's something more, it is enchanting. Theres part of that mountain when you look it, it calls you. (oo, and I felt it). Well the first time I've been there, at the top, the feeling was AMAZING and exhilarating combined. The feeling how majestic & amazing our planet is? How blessed we are, for having this things? "All things Bright and Beautiful", sabi nga sa isang poem nung elementary ako. You know the feeling when you succeeded in one goal after so many hindrances and problems you've encountered? Ganun ang feeling! Yung feeling of being proud after of all the circumstances! Iba pala talaga yung feeling ng #justcurious lang at ng #mayembraced sa environment. Lol!

That Maculot experience was the first and the last hiked for me because of the fast paced life i've been through, since I took college seriously. Until February of last year & this year. I managed to joined with my co-workers. And this time outside the Philippines naman, to a place where I worked as an OFW. Me and some of the Filipino's went to Mt. He Huan. It is not just an ordinary mountain but a snowy one. Yes! this mountain is a tourist spot here specially during winter and also known as the 'snow mountain' of the Central region of Taiwan. In this mountain I felt for the very first time the taste of ice snow, playing snowballs with friends & how to live with snow. My short stint to live, in a snowy places felt horrendous and COLD but still BEAUTIFUL.












After this Snow Mountain experienced, last March 12, we've been to Mt. Yang Ming in Taipei City for Cherry Blossom Festival. 

And that's another story to tell...

THE SKY LANTERN FESTIVAL 2012 EXPERIENCE
Every 15th day of the Lunar year, Chinese people celebrates the Mid-Autumn or the Lantern Festival wherein a hundred colorful figures are lighted as a lanterns. But before that, a kicked off was celebrated via SKY LANTERN or the KONGMING lantern festival. In this festival, an airborne paper lanterns having a waxy flammable material inside were lighted and threw up in the air, the flame heats the air inside the lantern, thus lowering its density causing the lantern to rise. The sky lantern is only airborne for as long as the flame inside stays alight, after which the lanterns sinks back to the ground. According to history sky lanterns are used as a signalling device or spy blimp in warfare during WWII. This is also called as a balloon munitions.

Moving on to the present time, this sky lanterns was modified and considered as one of the Chinese festivities. And it is celebrated before the Mid-Autumn or the most commonly known as Lantern Festival (note: Lantern Festival & Sky Lantern are different). In this sky lantern celebration, everyone can joined by making or buying paper lanterns in different colors. If in history, it is used as for warfare, now it is used to send messages & wishes to God and yes also as a signal device or for giving hope to find someone who is lost somewhere, just like in the movie "TANGLED". 

In Taiwan, this annual event was scheduled into 4 different days  starting from Jan26 followed on Jan 28, Feb 4 & the final highlight on the night of Feb 6 at Shi Fen, PingXi District, New Taipei City. 

This is a once-a-year event that you don't wanna missed and luckily last Feb. 6, I, together with my friends are so blessed to witness this wonderful & amazing Chinese/Taiwanese culture. We managed to endulged (endulged talaga ginamit! lol) this once in lifetime event by taking on-leave vacation, unnoticed. Hehehe.

Before we get into the place where the event is kicking off, we traveled almost two hours up north. From our place in Hukou Township we traveled by a local train, one & half hours to Taipei City. Then from Taipei City, we spent one more hour  also by train going to Rui Fang, then half an hour more from Rui Fang to Shi Fen Station, where the coal mining area is located, the place where the 1600 lanterns are to be released.
