Something not to think about but to be prepared….

Writing About Anything I Want To


This photo depicts every woman’s worst nightmare. You are walking alone and you think a man is following you. The hairs on your neck stand out and your heart begins to race. What should you do?

If you’re starting to feel nervous because you’re not sure what you should do, that is very natural.

If you think that this will never happen to you, you are using denial to cope with a difficult subject.

“Denial is a common tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning.” ~ Charles Temper

I was guilty of denial too. I used to lull myself into a false sense of security saying that this was probably not going to happen to me — that I don’t live in a bad neighborhood and all have to do is avoid going out at night.

Will be in Naga City Philippines – Bicol Region

Malabsay Falls in Naga City, Philippines

Yes, I am still in the Philippines.  I have few more days before I leave for Hong Kong and back to the States.

Naga City (Ciudad nin Naga) was established in 1575 on order of Spanish Governor-General Francisco de Sande, the city, then named Ciudad de Nueva Caceres (New Caceres City).    Naga City is the second largest city in the Bicol Region (Region V).

Residents of the city are called Nagueños and the city (that I know of) has two nick names “Heart of Bicol” and “Queen City of Bicol.”

Naga City is located 377 kilometres (234 mi) southeast of Manila.

Naga City natural attractions are:

  • Mount Isarog a dormant volcano and a national park open for trekking and mountain biking
  • Malabsay Falls
  • Mt. Isarog Hot Springs

Naga City has several historical sites and museums but that is not why I am going there.  I am going (hoping) to the Naga Sports Complex, visit my god-children and of course dine like a King.   I will not be visiting Magsaysay Avenue but for you people that are interested this is the hot spot for Night entertainment and dining.

I think my day will be pretty much filled with activities.  What about your day?

Jungle Trekking

Bridge In Jungle

It is -2F (-18.8c) outside and it feels warm.  I am going to the Philippines and Indonesia this month so that I can visit friends and remain myself that -2F is not warm.

I will be offline starting 7-11  January 2013.   I hope to be able to write the evening of the 11th on one of my blogs or my tweeter account  True_Survivalist.

Take care friends stay safe.
