It was a very nice day in AUP (Adventist University of the Philippines) when we started packing together with Racky my best friend( and enemy).  We are excited of the fast coming day where we will be both become AMC (Ambassador Mountaineering Cub) pioneering members. Together with 8 other fellas, we aim to set foot on a said grueling ascent of Mt. Pulag Akiki Trail. We ride the famous Victory liner to Baguio, we arrive at around 5am where this city welcomed us with foreign and locals all time favorite “biting cold”. It’s just my 3rd time to be in Baguio first was with my friends way back in 4th year  and on my 2nd year in AUP with the AYS  for its Youth Camp. I dont know the place nor he (Racky) does, so we try to use our 5 senses; eyes to read sign boards, mouth to ask for direction, hearing to listen to their answers, touch to enjoy the weather, and taste to… taste. We end up doing market, choosing the best nutrition we need before, during and after the climb. We find our way to MPM ( Mountain Province Mission) after and prepare for our food in our roomates house, Jakson ( hakson) and Ken ( okioki). They are so hospitable so their mother is, we fail to meet pastor Ortaleza their father because by that time he  is in the hospital. We receive a SMS from our companion that instead of taking Nueva Viscaya to reach mt. Pulag jump-off they choose to hit Baguio first, because of  1.) they think that there might be some obstruction along the way cause by the typhoon and 2.) Logistics in common words ” Ukay-Ukay”.

We meet at SM Baguio and found them, Sir Aser, Mam Yam, Sir Nonoy (no pNOy), Sir Raymond, Josel, Adjing, Ate Love, and Kuya Art at Jollibee .

We do the Adventure starting right there and then to the summit of mount Pulag, though we failed to experiene the favorite “sea of clouds” we were so happy with our accomplishment as a TRUE AMC member. We do the simple ceremony picture taking with our mentors and our certificate, it seems to be simple but meaningful to us..

I enjoy hiking alone specially when comes my birthday but hiking with AMC adds more flavor on that enjoyment I have during hike and climbs. So how do I feel about it?

3rd Investiture Climb:

Mt. Tarak Ridge, Brgy. Alas-asin Mariveles, Bataan.

With this group is our before student ( is that the right word? just send me a comment if you think of the best word). We , then invision AMC to root its way up until the Jesus comes again and it is now on its  way to build a better foundation with God’s grace. On sept 17-19 on the same mountain where the 2nd Investiture takes place will rise a new group of indivual who endured the test of being Christ Ambassador. I want to join and become a witness of their fulfillment but I have work to do. I cant understand how do I feel about it..

hahaha… I know its the same feelings with those who wants to go but cannot go and those who wants to go but cannot go too. you know what I mean?

AMC has two TIME, time for TIME and time for money. Some have TIME but have no money and some have money but doesnt have time… huhuhu.

God bless AMC and to those who will take pledge to become ONE this coming Investiture.

God bless to those who will be sponsors and mentors of them..

May God continually bless us..
