Cooking Over the River

This photo was taken a long time ago during our training course in mountaineering in the midst of Epol forest.  This was one of the training challenge where we had to set up fire for cooking rice with a twist.  We had to cooked it over the river and using resources that’s available only in the site. When it’s done, the training master will test the food. The rice should be perfectly cooked.  We passed this challenge.

Rocks or Leeches?

Rocks or Leeches
Tamayong

It’s either making your way by climbing over the steep side of the rocks and might fall eventually with the chance of hitting your head against the rock or by jumping into the water with leeches on it.

We tried the rocks but duh… I doubted if I’ll ever make it. There’s a part over there wherein I can’t get a stable  grip when I tried to make a turning leap  except entrusting my fate in the hands of my buddy( that will be Leo Adorado)  but I don’t think  he’ll managed to pull me over the edge considering that I am way heavier now. I’ve done this before but I don’t usually go halfheartedly, so I stepped back. I guess things really changes over time. We can never do things over and over same way as before. But with perseverance, for sure we’ll be able to catch our goal but on the other way around, taste a new experience and learn something different, defying fear (because  I’m really scared with leeches to death).

Then I chose leeches. 😉
