• The people of Sagada follow a unique burial ritual. The elderly carve their own coffins out of hollowed logs. If they are too weak or ill, their families prepare their coffins instead. The dead are placed inside their coffins (sometimes breaking their bones in the process of fitting them in), and the coffins are brought to a cave for burial.

    Instead of being placed into the ground, the coffins are hung either inside the cave or on the face of the cliffs, near the hanging coffins of their ancestors.

    The reason the coffins were hang was due to the belief that the higher the dead were placed, the greater chance of their spirits reaching a higher nature in the afterlife.

  • #BaleteTree
    #Philippines
    The Balete Tree are several species of the trees in the Philippines from the genus Ficus that are broadly referred to as Balete in the local language. A number of these are known as Strangler Figs wherein they start upon other trees, later entrapping them entirely and finally killing the host tree.

  • Fishing has been an important source of livelihood for Filipinos, fish being the country’s second staple food next to rice. Fishing also called angling, the sport of catching fish, fresh water or saltwater, typically with rod, line, and hook. Like hunting, fishing originated as a means of providing food for survival.

  • #PhilippineTarsier
    #ProjectPHDbyJED

    —Size, Weight, and Lifespan—
    ‚ÄčAs one of the smallest primates on earth, their body is only about 4.5 to 5 inches (11–13 cm) in length on average, with a tail about double that length. They weigh between 4 and 5 oz (110–130 g). Tarsiers are shorter-lived than many other primates. One Philippine tarsier lived to 13 years of age in captivity, and lifespan in the wild is likely shorter than this.

    Philippine tarsiers don't often move quadrupedally. Instead, they tend to cling vertically to trees, using their tail for support, and can usually be found leaping about the rainforest. They can leap 20 feet (6 meters) at a time—pretty amazing for such a small animal!

    Fellow SoMeeian this is Nueva Ecija. Mama E's province. Nueva Ecija is one of the provinces located in the island of Luzon-Philippines. A 2 and a half hour drive from Manila. Nueva Ecija is an agricultural province and is known as the "Rice Granary" of the Philippines. "Tricycle Capital of the Philippines" and "Milk Capital of the Philippines". Most of its agricultural land is preserved and is being used for farming and poultry.

    When it comes to health care innovations, educational services and facilities, delicacies and tourist destinations such as: Minalungao Park Pantabangan Lake, Lupao Pinsal Falls, Nabao Lake, Fort Magsaysay Dam (Pahingahan), Tanawan, Highland Bali Resort, Nueva Ecija is not left behind to its nearby provinces.

    One of the province's university- CLSU university has also been cited as one of the 100 most significant educational institutions in Asia.

    I soooo love to watch sun sets...

    #MtPundaquit
    Hiking through the rocky ridges leads to Mt. Pundaquit in San Narciso Zambales.
    On top, one is treated with the view of Zambales range, Capones island and the beaches of San Narciso. Sacrificial walk leads you to Anawangin Cove. Only a few people know this hidden beauty way back in 1990s. Mostly mountain climbers do.

    No manmade structures way back then. No cellphone signals, no electricity...purely a dance with mother nature.

    #MtTapulao

    Remembering my youth days when stamina can still lead me to greater heights. Mt. Tapulao is the highest mountain in Central Luzon.

    Located in Zambales, Philippines, its a continuous uphill trail with a height of 6,683 feet above sea level. That is more that twice Mt..Arayat.

    The trail is an open area which makes it harsh for hikers either in scorching heat or intermittent rain showers thus it is classified as a major climb.

    All the pains and efforts as soon as you reach the top. A breathless 360 view of vast beauty.

    There are many ways we call our Moms and Dads. For Moms, it can be Mama, Nanay, Inay, Nanang, and Ima. And for our Dads, It can be Papa, Tatay, Itay, Tatang, and Tang.

    Our Uncle we call as Tito, Bapa, or Tiyo. Our Aunt we call as Tita, Dara, or Tiya.

    One thing that will never be allowed is for our parents or elders to be called by their first name.
