WINKEND ADVENTURES: Mt. Hapunang Banoi and Mt. Maculot


You can’t do a good job if your job is all you do. At Wink, we know that the best ideas are sparked outside the four corners of our desk or studios. Our team believes in getting out there to see, explore, move, create and become.

Conquer and see the beauty of the mountains through the eyes of our SM MOA Nurse Therapist, Aphy Tadeo as she shares why she love mountain climbing.

What do you like most about climbing mountains?

The thing I like most about climbing mountains is the fulfillment that you feel after a hard climb, I may feel tired and hungry from walking uphill for hours but the sight of lush green trees and the feel of the wind against my face make it worthwhile. Nothing compares to the panoramic view from the top!

Any tips for first timers/beginners?

Eat a proper meal before the climb so that you have enough energy and bring enough water with you!

Why do you enjoy mountain climbing?

I enjoy mountain climbing because it's cheap, it's a form of meditation, it's healthy and I get to enjoy it with friends and meet other people as well.
