Aside from physically demanding jobs due to frequent conduct of ship-to-ship operations, the hot weather here in offshore Lome is one of the major difficulties to endure.
In March and April, the average maximum temperatures were 32 and 31 degrees Celsius. Good thing, it toppled more to 30 degrees Celsius this May.
Outwardly, it’s summer season and to beat the heat, we should go swimming!
However, neither beach nor open-sea swimming is permitted. Hence, we put-up this mini swimming pool on port bridge wing of the ship and played like kids on it!
What can you say about how we enjoy our kind of summer at sea?

Since we can’t scuba dive anymore in our last day of stay in Anilao, Mabini, Batangas, I and my friend West have decided to trek Mt. Gulugod-Baboy.

I actually haven’t heard anything about Mt. Gulugod so it was a kind of ‘let’s see when we get on top of it’ adventure.
To trek was challenging a bit since we just had slippers. But as we ascend the hills, every view was breath-taking.
When we finally reached the summit we were stunned by the impeccable beauty of the surroundings.
I felt like I was freed from prison.
Timely, precious and refreshing, the adventure made us forgot metro city – the concrete jungle we used to thrive in.
Mt. Gulugod-Baboy truly offers scenic views perfect for photography and of course, Instagram worthy photo shots.
Who wouldn’t love it, by the way?

If you ask most people what is their one major objective in life, they would probably give you a vague answer, such as, “I want to be successful, be happy, make a good living,” and that is it. They are all wishes and none of them are clear goals.
Goals must be SMART:
1. S–specific. For example, “I want to lose weight.” This is wishful thinking. It becomes a goal when I pin myself down to “I will lose 10 pounds in 90 days.”
2. M–must be measurable. If we cannot measure it, we cannot accomplish it. Measurement is a way of monitoring our progress.
3. A–must be achievable. Achievable means that it should be out of reach enough to be challenging but it should not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening.
4. R–realistic. A person who wants to lose 50 pounds in~30 days is being unrealistic.
5. T–time-bound. There should be a starting date and a finishing date.
