My Birthday Adventure (Part 1)

Last April 21, we went to Sigaboy, Davao Oriental for an adventure. And yes! we had a lot of fun and trekking!

Sunrise in Davao Oriental! We travelled early in the morning so that it will not be so hot. We arrived early and did some swimming during high noon! I don't care about sunburns! Just excited to swim in the the clear waters!

The next day, trekking going to the falls! There are two falls. First falls, about 30-45 mins hike.. This falls below is small but deep. Kinda eerie because it is in the small cave.

This falls is like 20 mins hike from the first falls. Much higher and much colder! Feels like I'm having a back massage when hitting the flowing water! hehehe

I enjoyed picking up some seashells. There are starfishes, sea urchins, sea cucumber and many more!

This is the best birthday adventure! And hope I'll be back here...

Stingray.. So cute but deadly...

I got these pictures when I had my vacation in Manila. STINGRAY.

Stingrays are commonly found in the shallow coastal waters of temperate seas. They spend the majority of their time inactive, somewhat buried in sand, habitually moving only with the wave of the tide. The stingray's coloration commonly reflects the seafloor's shading, camouflaging it from voracious sharks and larger rays. Their flattened bodies are composed of pectoral fins joined to their head and trunk with an legendary tail trailing at the back.

When a stingray attacks, it needs to be facing its victim, because all it does is flip its long tail upward over its body so it strikes whatever is in front of it. The ray doesn't have straight managed over the sting mechanism, only over the tail. In most cases, when the sting enters a person's body, the pressure causes the protective sheath to tear. When the sheath tears, the sharp, serrated edges of the spine sink in and venom flows into the wound causing a serious damage. The most vicious part of the sting mechanism can actually be the barbs on the spine. Even if venom weren't involved at all, pulling the spike out of a human's chest or abdomen could be enough to cause death from the massive tearing of tissue.

Flaming Fire

FIRE has been a significant element of all cultures and religions from pre-history to modern day and was fundamental to the progress of civilization. It has been regarded in many diverse contexts throughout olden times, but especially as a metaphysical constant of the world.
This element distinguishes itself in its immense warmth, and its capacity to provide radiance in darker situations. Its warmth and light can be very supportive of life, but when out of control can become relatively destructive. The inner light of this element can make fire individuals appears quite self-reliant, confident, self-assured and even assertive. It also makes it self-expressive and highly enthusiastic.
Fire is also an spontaneous and a treacherous element, that can rage and all of a sudden burst. Fire is persistent and exhilarating and extremely not restrained. It is seen as the power blazing inside us, giving us an iron strength of will to go for our goals, bestowing upon us the passion to do it with all of ourself, resulting in the principle and liberty to do it without backstabbing and with an open face.
This is the one element that is never taken for granted. Then of course we cannot ignore the negative power that fire exerts. In other words – fire is an element that is to be treated with the utmost of respect, and must never be considered “tame”.

Element: WATER

The element of water is expressed in dark blues and black. These colors invite personal wisdom. The energy of water element is represented by any shape that produces flow. Still water energy is represented by any shape that would holds water and creates a womb like effect. Moving water shapes are drawn as cascades or ripples. This energy flows to the sides and down.
Water is often also interpreted as the purest form of liquid, as the "primal liquid", which only appears in different shapes and forms, but in its transformation always retains its basic elemental properties.
Water stands, like Fire, for deep, but also for variable, or - expressed in a positive way - "open" emotions, for the acceptance of diversity and the will for the new. Water also represents the contemplative moment, the searching in your inner self, for the discovering of the deepest and darkest things of yourself but also for unleashed chaos, for uncertainty without a goal.
Water is about tranquility, gentleness and compassion, the blossoming of an open heart. It is about love, and above all the love of giving for its' own sake, and without conditions.
