Trekking Osmeña Peak in Cebu

Osmeña Peak is the highest peak in the Queen City of the South which is standing 1,013 meters above sea level.  It’s unique from other mountain ranges in the Philippines because of its multiple jagged hills group together that overlook and stretch as far as the Badian shorelines.  Most people refer to it as the Chocolate Hills of Cebu but instead of rolling curved mounds, the peaks are thinner, sharper-pointed and rocky.

I don’t remember climbing a mountain before unless ofcourse with long stairs so I don’t have any experience to compare with, but so far, the trail going to Osmeña Peak wasn’t that hard for a first timer like me. I don’t want to sound bragging, but it was actually pretty easy but I still sweat a lot and panting for breaths going up. Well, that’s what I get for working at home with no social life aside from traveling lol.

4th Blogging Anniversary

Can you believe it? It’s been FOUR YEARS since I started blogging! Actually, I still can’t believe it. Like, me, blogging?! Hello! It’s really happening!

 

How it all started?

If you happen to read my About page section, then I’m sure you already know my story, but for those who don’t, well then, let’s have a little story telling shall we? *wink

I’ve been reading fiction stories as early as my grade school years but I started hoarding books and become addicted to it when I was in College, like I literally can’t get enough of it. After finishing College, I was forced to stay for a year in our hometown for my medication because of Tuberculosis (sucks right?). It was so boring plus I don’t have any book clubs or even friends who also loves to read to talk to so I decided, why not make a blog about it? Well, it’s been my hopeless dream to become a blogger until I posted my very first blog post the same month last 2014. And then, a few years have passed, my interests broaden and created a new blog with a new name until I decided to self host and finally settle for Blushing Geek as my official and hopefully my final blog name.

Review:

While I was still reading this story, I have outpouring things to say about it. But now that I’m done, I’m not sure where to start. This story is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s too beautiful that I don’t know where to start.

Island of Fire is the third book of the Costa Leona series. The first two books received the same high praised from me and I am really happy that Jonaxx didn’t disappoint with this one. Well, this is Jonaxx we are talking about, so it’s not a surprise at all hehe.

For the last three months, I’ve read a pile of books from my TBR but all of them failed to made me fall madly in love with the hero, it’s only Jonaxx, Sonia Francesca and Kelly Oram creates heroes that were just too hard for me to resist. That’s why I’m so happy that that wonderful feeling resurrected and so is my insanity haha.

Sypnosis:

Bashful Karma Mason has been too concerned with college—and now work—to embrace her sexuality. Bullied as a child, she hides behind an unremarkable wardrobe and relegates herself to the shadows. But when her best friend convinces her to attend a charity benefit in Chicago wearing a stunning red dress that catches the eye of every man in the room, she discovers a surprising side to her personality. One that adores the spotlight but has no idea how to handle the attention.

Mark Strong, a wealthy Chicago businessman, is brimming with confidence. He’s in total control. Nothing—and no one—escapes his notice. However, Mark carries a heavy, painful burden. After finding his fiancée with another man six years ago, he’s erected a fortress around his heart, unwilling to let himself fall in love again. But when enchanting Karma snares his gaze from across the room, he has no idea she will shatter his carefully ordered life.

What starts out as a casual flirtation takes a series of surprising turns as Mark and Karma embark on a sensual journey destined by fate. Mark is driven to know Karma, understand her…educate her, and Karma is his willing student, eager to experience the pleasure he promises. But when the student becomes the teacher, Mark has to make a choice between taking another chance on love or a future alone.
