We’ve been married for two weeks now, and caught up in a whirlwind of work and family events. We hadn’t really planned on having a honeymoon — it was out of our budget, and we had several trips booked for Q3 anyway — but middle of last week we just agreed that we both needed to get away, just a bit, from all the craziness. So we did some last-minute hunting and decided to take a bus to Subic, Zambales, to pause, breathe, and kick off being husband and wife properly.

Our plan was just to rest and sleep a lot, but somehow on Sunday morning we found ourselves taking a mini-tour within the Pamulaklakin Forest Trail, an ancestral domain managed by an Aeta community. There are half-day and hour-long tours; I highly recommend the latter as a side trip if you’re in town for a convention or a family outing. Our guide gave us a crash course on how they utilized the trees and plants for various household purposes, and even did a demo of how a single bamboo can be used to cook and serve a meal for two. After the quick hike we spent some time relaxing in the cool stream.

And so it begins…
