Frost hits Benguet's Mt. Pulag, Luzon's Highest Peak

Cordillera - The country's second highest mountain, the Mt. Pulag in Kabayan, Benguet had frost Tuesday morning. 

Frost is a type of precipitation that occurs when the temperature of a surface falls below freezing point and the water vapor in the air condenses into ice crystals. 

This can happen on Mt. Pulag, as the summit of the mountain reaches elevations of over 2,900 meters above sea level. 

At these high elevations, the temperature can drop well below freezing, making frost a common occurrence.

Frost is most likely to form on Mt. Pulag during the dry season, which runs from November to May. 

During this time, clear skies and low humidity make it easier for the temperature to drop and for frost to form. 

Visitors to the mountain during this time period should be prepared for the colder temperatures and potential frost, and dress accordingly.

Youths in Kabayan, Benguet save .5 Million pesos from "Ipon Challenge"

Cordillera- More than half a million pesos (P523,345.85) was collected from the  Ipon challenge  participated by more than twenty three local youths in Kabayan, Benguet.

Have you ever challenged yourself to save something everyday? While others challenge themselves to save any amount, could it be even challenging to save a specific amount or set a target amount within a day, month or year?

Either you have a steady stream of income, or a student receiving allowance from your parents, you can always save if you choose to, but to challenge yourself to save is a different story.

Just like Maureen Medon who was able to save P54, 344 from the working youth category and Brian Labenio who was able to save P53,500 from the school category.

This Ipon challenge was launched by the local government through the leadership of  Shellanie Luciap, President of the Sangguniang Kabataan Federation which lasted from February 10, 2021 to December 10, 2021.

The challenge was participated by 23 participants with two categories. There were 7 participants from the working youth category and 16 participants from the school your category.

Those who were able to save the most from both categories were recognized and awarded P7,500 each. Second placers received P5,500 and third placers received P4,000, while three participants from both categories received P1,000 as consolation prizes.

This Ipon challenge is indeed an exceptional program conducted by the local government to introduce financial literacy and teach financial discipline and habit to the youth.

This program was certainly successful as some of the participants testified and shared what they've learned about self-discipline not opening their piggy bank, determination in saving, motivation  and inspiration to win the Ipon challenge.

Cordillera - A good-hearted lady cop in Benguet offered to take care of a sleeping baby to allow the mother to go purchase essential needs during a rolling store conducted in the municipality. 

In a post by Kabayanmps Pnp, the lady cop was seen holding the baby in her lap as she took good care of the infant like any mother would do.

The post says, 
"When the Tiongsan Rolling store came into our Municipality, residents took the opportunity to purchase their necessities and provisions and the Kabayan MPS personnel  conducted police presence in order to remind the customers to maintain public health standards and provided security assistance as well.

It was during this time that PCpl Nimfa B. Camis spotted a mother carrying her baby who wished to purchased her groceries. 

Upon interviewing the mother why she brought the baby with her as it is not supposed to be considering our current situation, she narrated her circumstance and condition. 
PCpl Nimfa B. Camis offered to carry the baby instead until the mother finished procuring her needs."

The good deed of PCpl Camis is highly commendable as she not only demonstrated one of the essential duties of a police officer- serving their people, but also went beyond her duties to show compassion and empathy to a mother and her child.

Mabuhay ka ma'am Nimfa B. Camis.
