Cordillera - A young man from Benguet witnessed the immense hardship his parents endured to provide for their family. His parents are both farmer who worked long hours in physically demanding jobs, sacrificing their own dreams to ensure their children had a better life.

He finished the degree of Bachelor of Science in Criminology and has also passed the licensure examination for Criminologist. 

This success of mine is a simple gesture of honouring the hardship of my parents. As he holds the hands of his parents, He feels the roughness of their palms and fingers. 

This reminds him of every moment that they are under the scouring heat of the sun while he is shaded by the roof of our school. 

His parents keep on reminding them that a piece of land or money they cannot give. 

The greatest legacy that they can only give is an education earned with the hardship of being a farmer.

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

Photo Courtesy || Silva Pacliwan

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.
