claim to fame

beaches and mt. pinatubo are zambales' claim to fame. i remember years before, my yoga group used to go there for a weeklong yoga retreat. now, i have come to zambales to see the famous mt. pinatubo. my first ever hike in the philippines. before the eruption in 1991, mt. pinatubo stood at 1,745 meters. today it stands at 1,485 meters.

right place, right time

i have been assigned on a month long project in the philippines in our facility in clark, pampanga. as i celebrated my 33rd birthday, i wished for something awesome - to climb mt. pinatubo. and it came true!
friends from VT Manila were planning a trip, and we did it on my last weekend in the philippines.
