Good Friday

Sacrifice, that is the best word to describe what I had to endure this day. UTOY went to Batad, Banawe to check out another World Heritage Unesco site. Sabi nila this is a unique rice terraces because of its amphitheater- shaped structure. Yunik na ba yun? (LORD: O wag ng mang-asar...Good Friday ngayon).

Since the road is a bit rough, we opted to take a jeepney ride that took us about an hour from Banawe proper (with P1,800.00 damage). Aba'y sulet na din, akalain nyo 'bang pagkadulas at pagkapanget ng daan. For sure, masa shock ang shox mo.

There are not a lot of tourists in Batad. Probably, I've seen 40-50 pax, mostly adventure trekkers. Lam nyo ba kung baket? (LORD: Baket?). Nampitso. I wasn't told that before you can see the actual terraces and the falls itself, you have to walk more than 4,000 staircases back and forth. Grueling but true! Ergo, oral rehydration salts to the rescue!

God must have been watching while I was about to do the trek. Ciguro sabi nya, "Hoy UTOY, since it is Good Friday naman at andiyan ka na sa Batad, can you please pray while walking and share a little piece of yourself to GOD?". Si Lord nangongonsensya na naman...e matatanggihan ba kita? Ok let's go!

Pagkatapos ng napakahabbbbbbang lakad....


1. GOD walked with me. (PROOF: Zero cramps for UTOY for the first time. Two of the guys had it. )

2. Reached Batad terraces and the falls.

3. First to reach entry point. (LORD: Astig!...Sabi ko sayo "Just Dream, Believe, Survive)
