Project Anthurium

Since my brothers and sisters who are busy at the garden don’t have time to clean the flowers, I took the chance to do it when I was home last weekend. The weeds are already taller than the anthuriums huhu.

Anthuriums are expensive but we were able to buy some propagates (planting materials) when I received my tuition refund (due to a scholarship) in Second Year high school. I think we only bought 25 pieces of propagate at that time. There were also some given by neighbors and friends.

Habang ako nagpapakahirap maglinis, yung mga manok namimiyesta sa mga bvulate at insekto.

Weeds and flowers together.

Propagates that need replanting.

So where’s the weeded planting area? Unfortunately, I was not able to complete it to think that I’ve been working on it since Saturday and Sunday hehe. Akalain mong mahirap pala. So ayun, itutuloy ng kapatid ko. (Sana! At dapat lang kasi kung hindi…lagot sya sa akin hehe) I’m also thinking of converting this into real business. Well, let’s see.

Good reads:

Abot ko ang langit

These are pictures taken on our way home from Mt. Sto. Tomas at around 4 PM on February 1, 2008. This is already in our barangay (nasa paanan kami ng Mt. Sto. Tomas). This is a common view even during the summer. I’m always amazed while watching the fog go up the mountain. It feels like I’m in heaven :). Take note. Though the fog is thick, it doesn’t mean that it will rain.

Mt. Sto. Tomas

Mt. Sto Tomas is Baguio’s highest peak and the second highest mountain in Benguet (next to Mt. Pulag). It’s often a destination for hikers. The peak is 7,500 feet high and it offers a view of Baguio City, La Union province and even South China Sea. This can be reached by foot or by vehicle.

There are giant twin radars thus the place is also sometimes called “Radar”. There’s an old joke that these radars are in fact giant electric fans that’s why Baguio is cold hehe (and some people really believe it :D). There are also other telecommunications towers in the area.

This is a popular place especially during the Holy Week because this is where St. Paul parish built its Stations of the Cross and so this is where the community gathers.

Last weekend, I’ve had the chance to visit the place again (to attend to my aunt’s burial, whose house is on top of the mountain). It’s freezing when you are in the shade (you need at least two jackets, a bonnet, and thick socks) but it’s extremely hot when you’re directly under the sun. In fact, I got sunburned and now, I have to nurse my sunburned arms and neck. What a weird weather.

Radar – Baguio’s two electric fans 🙂
Highest peak (I guess). I’m two kilometers away.
