Kwebang Lampas, Pagbilao Quezon



Kwebang Lampas is actually on the right side (facing the beach) of Puting Buhangin, Quezon. Its a small cave on the other side of the beach. Its a bit risky the first time we try to conquer going inside it, since we are not swimmers so we decided to cut it off and just wait till afternoon for the low tide. Mang Lando, ate Gemma's husband told us that water gets very low when its low tide. So patiently we wait for like 4 hrs. I slept while waiting for the low tides and woke up looking on the shore for about 4pm the water in the cave opening is like below the knee...hahaha Thats the perfect time for us to shine....shine bright like a diamond...hahahaha




See this image below! Those names/words that are written on cave walls really made me madly disappointed. What are those people thinking about? That they'll be famous after they have written their name on it? That there friends will be proud of them?That the world will be proud and worship them if their name is on its cave walls....?Grrrrrrrrrrr........To all of you who have done any form of vandalism especially to this God given nature I hope you learn your lesson someday as in the near future, as in ASAP!....hmppfff...


Except that vandalism part, well the cave has shallow and clear water, you can see small fishes swimming in and out of the cave. It has an opening on the other side facing the bay. This opening illuminates light from the sun that made its features more attractive. Also makes your pictures a bit dramatic...hahahaha 





Kwebang Lampas also has a Grotto on the upper right side of the cave. A Virgin Mary Grotto below the rock formations made us feel safe that God is always with us....

Puting Buhangin, Pagbilao Quezon





I've been wanting to go somewhere before the summer ends but unfortunately my work did not permit to…Summer is already over and the rainy days is here to come and typhoons started to invade, tropical depressions are coming from different sides of the country.

But that won't stop us from reaching our goals…hahaha On the day of our trip we were watching the news and it had announced that there is a tropical depression coming in the country…..Some of our friends change their minds preferred not go which I understand, but only the three of us remained ready and still excited to be there….. We've conquered typhoon Juan and Ondoy a tropical depression wouldn’t be a big deal…hehehe  

As for me I love going to places that are isolated and doesn't have an easy access that sounds like a not too crowded place where I can enjoy and do what I want without being conscious with the people around me…hahaha I like having long bumpy ride, and asking locals though some of them are taking advantage but I'm not that easy…hahaha I'm best in haggling you know….hhaahaha by these I can really feel the backpacker in me…(feelingera lang ang peg….) it adds up challenge and makes you more excited to get to the place…..

 Through this post you will see if the long bumpy ride, and being lost before you get to this beach is worth it….hahaha



We met at the Jam Liner Cubao Kamias station. Our bus departed exactly 3 am…The good thing with Jam Liner is that we didn't have to wait for other passengers to fill the bus….Seems like everything is on our side haha…..bwahahaha arrived at Lucena Grand Central 7am…The three of us were hungry so we decided to have our breakfast there…When I visit provinces I prefer to eat on its local carenderia to taste some of their local dishes. Thats part of travelling….oh yeah….(feeling expect oh….hahaha) 

After that we are ready to roll...From Lucena Grand Central you will travel for about 2 hours to get to the Puting Buhangin in Ibabang Polo. Will post travel details in separate post....Upon arriving in the Pagbilao Market we took a jeepney ride to Ibabang Polo luckily since we are two groups going to Puting Buhangin the driver asked us to just add 20php so that he will drop us on the bay inside the Team Energy Power Plant which originally cost 200php for a tricycle ride going there....yehey we saved a bit...



After crossing the bay I asked the boatman how much the ride is and he said it will be included on the entrance fee...Last challenge to reach the beach is to trek for like 15 minutes but for us first timers, plus the trail was muddy that time it took us like 30 minutes...not bad for a first timers right....?wahehehe






Told you it was muddy that time...hahaha (defensive....?haha)while trekking you won't even notice that you're already on the entrance of the beach because you will enjoy the trees and the scenery. Look how luscious the trees are... 








Need I say more.....?haha.....this beach is a paradise thats why its more fun in the Philippines... Look how fine the sand is, you will initially know why it was named Puting Buhangin....Caressing crystal clear water, really made us swim right away. Ignore the skin tone that has been maintained for like forever embrace being tanned. Enjoy life and explore Philippines don't be a tourist in your country...


P.S.
Will post travel details separately....

My Poor Little Ashton



I am very sorry for not posting for about a month I have been so busy that I didn't have time to do write ups for my blog... I can't have a clear mind to start any article because my Ashton is sick....I have been going to his vet for several times now to check his status if everything is normal or what....We discovered that he is having liver problems and that really alarmed me so deep that I can't even concentrate to my work..I think you guys read that I posted something about liver problems in dogs. It is somewhat a common cause of death of the dogs....and that really made my cry yaaah.....I am such an OA yes I admit it with arms wide open....hahahaha  I dont know you but I treat him as my baby, my son....Who wouldn't be sad when something like that happen right.....?

So now he is a bit ok he is back to his normal naughtiness..... I so miss him being such....Ashton is still taking medications for a month and slowly he is getting well now.... I'm positive that he will....

Here is a photo of the meds that he is taking.....I am actually surprised how Ashton is cooperating in taking these....maybe he really wants to be well too....you don't want mama to get worried ha.....?hehehe
