It’s not something I’m proud of. I’ve spent four nearly 15 years in Los Baños and I haven’t really been to the Mount Makiling Forest Reserve (MMFR), one of the eight ASEAN heritage parks in the country. (I did go to Makiling Botanic Gardens last year to attend a colleague’s wedding. Does that count?)
I needed to accompany a production class at MMFR for their location shoot. I’m glad I did. It was fun. A friend invited to me to join their hike before but it was during the period of on-and-off sore throat and fever. I didn’t think I could keep up with them in that state of health. This time, I’m more confident that I’ll manage the hike/trek thanks to the regular Zalpen shots 🙂
It was almost 1pm when I got back to the apartment. Reached the daily goal of 10,000 steps at around 11am (so I guess that’s similar to one jog session?).
It’s nice to see the students dealing with the challenges of a location shoot. The group gathered 35gb worth of video footage and photographs at the forest reserve. Really looking forward to seeing their output 🙂
