WHEN NATURE SHOWS ITS WRATH

Taliyan Falls, Impasugong, Bukidnon before and during the flashflood

I and my trek buddies were stranded for more than an hour. After a halfday trek, we decided to pass by Taliyan Waterfall in Impasugong, Bukidnon just beside mighty Tagoloan River. We just took a short rest after taking our lunch. We took time to cool our bodies down before taking a dip. Suddenly the sky got dim and a heavy rain poured down. We hid ourselves under rocks and cavern hoping the rain would soon end. 

The rain got heavier. Waters started to drip inside our hiding refuge. We were supposed to go home under the rain. Yet we could no longer cross the small creek. The roaring water turned chocolatey. So we waited for more than an hour witnessing the gentle waterfall turn into a monster.

WAKING UP IN A MILLION STAR ACCOMMODATION

After a 7-hour ride from Santiago City, the passenger and cargo filled bus finally arrived at a remote town of Dinapigue, Isabela. Being a DIY backpacker, I had no contact or even an IT. I just had targeted destinations, Dibulo Falls and Dinapigue beach fronting Pacific Ocean. When I got in the ride, I just waited what happens next. It was 12 mn when we arrived. It was so dark since the town has no supply of electricity. There are no known accommodations, only deafening silence all around. So I ended up sleeping alone inside the bus with million stars right above my head.
