Tippy and I have known each other since 2009 when we were both students for a musical theatre class. The bubbly, talented teenager was easy to warm up to because she always had this welcoming smile. Even if she’s been performing for so long, she never made the other students feel like she was above everyone elseĀ the class. She was friendly, bungisngis and very sweet. šŸ˜€

Looking at my calendar for the month of May hasĀ made me realize that I am in dire need of more nature time. Growing up in Rizal, I loved waking up to the sound of birds chirping, the cool air and the sight of lots and lots of trees which unfortunately, I no longerĀ get enough of since we moved toĀ the concrete Kingdom of Makati. There’s something about communing with nature that calmsĀ and heals the frazzled soul. I remember in college, I’d always look forwardĀ to days when my classes would end right before lunch because that meant I’d haveĀ time for a nature walk. Leading naturalist Richard Louv, author of The Nature Principle says “We can be happier, healthier, and smarter if we weave more nature into our lives,”


I wasĀ so delighted to receive an invitation fromĀ the sales team of Sandari Batulao to check out the sprawling residential mountainside community which is quickly becoming a popularĀ destination for camping, outdoor activities and weddings. Conveniently situated at the foot of Mt. Batulao and Mt. Talamitam, the temperature and wind feels noticeably different despite the hot summer weather.
