To those who cannot understand Tagalog, ‘kembot’ means to shake the hips (but don’t take it literally). 😛 The route has a combination of rough road, pavement and trails that went constantly uphill and downhill.

On my recent travel, I managed to sit down, reflect and was able to write about it. Yes, I always carry a notebook with me whenever I travel so I can write things whenever I get inspired. 😛 I hope you find this helpful. ❤

5 Reasons Why I Love to Run

Nothing beats a morning run to freshen up my day!  Sometimes I am asked what it is about running that I love so much. I always pause,  taken aback by the question, as if I am being asked why I love my family, my friends, or my dog. I just do.
