Soaking-wet Urban Nightride before my Bday

Met up with my bestfriend, Patrick Hizon at Starbucks Landmark just a few hours ago.
We decided to meet up this night instead of celebrating my birthday tomorrow, since he'll be proposing to his girlfriend, Diorella tomorrow.

And of course went to Starbucks soaking wet.... the rain a few hours ago was a storm. Had nikkoguiam and choyoboi's jerseys brought to apple1's house... or should I say met apple1 (Eduardo Arevalo) by the gate of Philam Homes.


Got home soaking wet... XD

The Day before my Bday

Was supposed to post this early morning... but guess what, with the lack of time I wasn't... ahahaha~

=====

The day before my birthday... ahaha

Imagine that, I get to spend my leave at starbucks... in which I should've been on the plane to Bangkok, Thailand... but our family trip got cancelled due to the conflict in Bangkok. Instead our trip's going to be on the 2nd of May till the 3rd of May in Subic.

"Haaaay... sayang talaga."

Instead we're spending my birthday (and dad's) at home tomorrow. And visitors? As usual its family relatives... as for my friends? I don't know if my bestfriend will be coming over this year... he'll be busy proposing to someone he's fallen for tomorrow. How about Michi, Mik and their kids: Lei and Ashela? Prolly busy... I guess I'll be celebrating this year's birthday without my bestfriends.

"Ganun talaga."

So what's in my agenda today? Well here I am this morning waiting for those who'll be picking up their jerseys at the meet-up place: Starbucks Landmark Trinoma.

Hmm I guess you guys haven't seen the UST Gruppo Tomasino yet? Ayt? The jersey's were delivered at the office last Tuesday. And the outcome of the cycling jersey was definitely awesome.

So what's next after this morning? Well I'll be heading home then get my Single-Speed and have mandudugas08's jersey delivered through LBC... then after that I'll go for some afternoon trailing at UP... have some beer with some friends if I meet them at Mang Manny's... deliver Vicente's jersey to his relatives' home @ teachers village, then go back home... for some rest.

===

Eventually mangdugas08's jersey was delivered earlier this day... while this afternoon had the Deore DX headset installed to the DB... and drooled even more when I found a NOS 1992 Muddyfox Courier frame in 19" sizing for just 950php at Roosevelt Bicycle Store... will be getting that frame soon, just in case the DB's frame breaks.

Then around late this afternoon had vicente's jersey delivered to his house... then rain pours like a storm.

Camp O'Donnel Trails, Capas, Tarlac

out of a 1hr. 30 minute vid... I was able to produce a 6min 51sec. vid.

Aside from this trail video, I was also able to get some still pictures of the trail...

And the infamous, Mt. Pinatubo Crater... getting a chance to go trekking to that part was a fantastic experience. I'll share you all the photos from that time when I get home.

So far enjoy~ Hope those vids were able to get us all back in track.

Ridden but never Written

I have ridden but never written nor shared my explorations for the past few weeks.

The reason behind all these are a jarful of many things. One would be work, followed by exhaustion and possibly next would be being pre-occupied with other things.

But it would be best to share all my stories in one blow right? Just to catch up.

First of all there's the Training Rides for the Tour of the Fireflies... training rides for marshals. It happened for Five Weeks but I only got to attend 3 of the 5 training rides. Was absent because of the Newbie Licao-Licao ride organized by PMTB that happened around the 2nd week of March. And Absent again on the 4th training Sunday because I had to support my father during his participation @ the All-Terra King of Mountain Trail Run.

And of course just last April 18, 2010 was the much awaited Tour of the Fireflies... an advocacy tour in which 10,000 cyclists stormed and rocked 8 city's in Metro Manila.

And just recently April 25, 2010 was the invitational trail ride during the INNHS Highschool Reunion of Batch 71 (dad's highschool) @ Camp O'Donnel in Capas, Tarlac.

Like as always the best way to share a memory is through photographs or through video/film.
