Sibulan River: A Film Review on Princess Mononoke and Madagascar 2

this is what's left of Sibulan River in 2011 (during the rainy season)

The year was 2010

First you read this…
If you are in Davao City and if you love river adventure, well, you are not that far away from this exciting wet and wild outdoor adventure. Whitewater tubing is already in the Davao region and it gives you more than the river escapade you crave for. The Sibulan River in Darong, Sta. Cruz Davao del Sur is known for whitewater tubing and has been a favorite destination by water sports enthusiasts, local and foreign tourists through the years. Often visited during summer, the place surely makes people wet and wild. Even frequent Davao City tourists come and take a plunge in Sibulan since it is very close to Davao’s southern boundary.*



But even before the destination could establish a name this happens…

Why I don't Organize Climbs

The First Lagataw Invitational  Climb

Sa tinagal ko sa larangan ng outdoor activities, I seldom organize events. And when I do, it is in small numbers. And many have asked why I always wanna go solo or minimalistic. So here’s the story!

Stirring Images 2


The story by default
Some climbers enjoyed the view of Mt Apo from Lake Venado. They camped in the evening, partied all night and felt lazy to carry their trash back down the following day!
And then the image was posted on Facebook and there was a feast of opinions and criticism taken part in by everyone who knew everything!

The other version
The photo was taken during the yearly rehabilitation period of Mt Apo. Tourism office personnel gathered garbage and put them on the dry area of Lake Venado and carried all the collected garbage down the mountain after two days.

The point
Every image makes you a witness of just a millisecond of a long event. Don’t be too quick to tell the story. Let the real witness do that.

The heads up
Every story is just as good as how much the real witness wants you to know.

The untold story
The guy who took this photo was a climber who was not really part of the rehabilitation activity.  During rehabilitation, NO CLIMBER IS ALLOWED ENTRY into the natural park!

The lesson
Things do happen. The question is Can you make things happen?...You’ll get the relevance of the lesson if you’re among of the few who get my drift!
