How to join SAKLANG

joey on the peak of Mt. Apo Imagine. You sit at the top of a mountain like Joey with a hot coffee. Cold wind breezes from the west tickling your ears. You feel cold. You take a spoon and begin stirring your coffee. You drink it to soothe your soul and battered spirit.
You cast your weary eyes to the vast valleys beneath. And as you hold your cup of coffee, you can imagine hearing the grumbling, raging sound of the wild river, slicing the gorges as it slithers across the terrain like snake.
At night, the glittering stars reveal the beauty of heaven.You become stoic or philosophical. You dream of how it feels to live in harmony with nature. You dream of a place where you can be on your own and do what you want to do. The truth sinks on you--there is no place like sitting on top of a mountain drinking hot coffee. Yeah!
