after the rain : a personal post


It’s been more than a month since my last post. The blogosphere’s biggest emo of them all is back. Yup, that’s me and from now on I think I should start calling myself as the emo blogger or emo32, emo traveler, or the ultimate emo boy. Hahaha. Little did you know that my last post was actually a suicidal note. It may seemed that I was saying goodbye to the blogosphere for good but the truth is, I was already saying goodbye to the world for good. I was at my lowest point again in my life and as usual I resort to suicidal thoughts and I’m not gonna make it attitude or there’s no hope anymore and my life is a mess drama, I hate my self mantra and unlimited pity party all day and all night long. I know I love adventure but my life itself is already full of adventure. But it’s a different kind of adventure. Picking up every single piece of hope I have left in order to survive. After a month, I’m still alive, I’m still here…I survived! I survived “after the rain” but the storm is yet to come. You know what? I had a lot of realizations from this experience, that… “Somehow God has arranged events and placed people in our lives for a reason…In the same way we have been appointed to be part of someone’s life for a reason as well”…that “I’m taking myself too seriously”… that somehow “I am weak and such a cry baby”…that “I’m paranoid”… that “I have a lot of friends”… that “I should watch Naruto more often”… that “I have a gift”… that “giving up is not an option”… that “I still wanna live and touch other people’s lives…actually it’s a never ending “that”…but the most important thing is that… “God is there for me all the time”. That’s coming from a full blooded atheist to being a Christian.

I don’t normally write an article this long here in my blog, this is more of a photo blog. I’m not really a writer and thank you for reading this far and I don’t wanna bore you so I’m gonna shut my mouth now. Do you like the new Asiong32? Well, a lot of changes well be coming soon, that means, more photos, more travels, more adventures and more fun as I turn 2 next month.

Burnham Lake after the rain:

taken one afternoon after the rain using my friends canon kiss dslr.






and finally…the view of baguio city hall from the lake.



I was looking at my photo archives and I found these…photos of foggy burnham lake taken two years ago from my old camera phone…I tried submitting these photos to a photo contest two years ago but have not met the criteria because it was just a camera phone. too bad. now I’m sharing it…

    i would like to see also the cave...^_^

  16. @lakwatserong tatay...thank you din sir!

    wow sir, its a priviledge na samahan ka dito sa baguio! naexcite ako bigla kasi mamemeet ko na isa sa mga xplorers and masaya ako pag nakakameet ng mga travel bloggers. you can bring your kids along sa mt. cabuyao but its not advisable kung sa bandang cave tayo punta kasi may part na medyo matarik ng at delikado sa mga kids pero depende parin kasi kung may mga ibang adults tayong kasama eh pwede siguro. Aside from the cave eh marami pang interesting sites ang makikita dun. contact me anytime kung kelan, sa ngayon subrang maulan pa pero looking forward na masamahan ka dito soon! i will send u a link of the place and other places dito sa baguio that you might like. u
