walang kinikilingan?

"papunta pa lang kayo, pabalik na ako!" yan siguro ang gustong ipahayag ni Dale Abenojar kina Oracion, Emata at Garduce. hehehe. kagabi ko lang narinig sa balita that Abenojar claims that he is the first Filipino to summit Mt. Everest, not Oracion. Nakarating daw sya on May 15, samantalang si Oracion ay May 17, mas nauna nga naman sya. Totoo kaya ito? siguro. nakakalat sa internet ang balita eh.

I googled Abenojar and found these news... mga balita na nagsasabi na nakarating nga daw si Abenojar ng summit on May 15, though the reports said its unconfirmed, pero at least, ibinalita pala nung May 16 sa internet, hindi man lang nabanggit sa local news? Walang kinikilingang pagbabalita? Sampal sa dalawang media network, hehehe, e nakakalat lang pala dyan sa internet ang nangyari kay Abenojar eh, di man lang nabanggit, puro manok lang nila ang ibinabalita. o eto yung mga balita...
"According to MountEverest.net, Malaysian climber Ravichandran Tharumalingam and Filipino climber Dale Abenojar have both reportedly reached the summit." - Outdoor News Wire (May 16,2006)
"More and more climbers are summiting Everest from the north side, thanks to a remarkably long period of generally good weather – except for isolated snowfalls. Himex’s second team succeeded yesterday, including disabled Mark Inglis; there were also reports on Malaysian Ravi topping out, as well as unconfirmed news on Filipino Dale Abenojar reaching the summit, despite previous reports stating he had aborted his attempt." Mt. Everest.Net (May 16,2006)
“One guy who beat the odds was Dale Abenojar. You will have read about him on my blogs and many Philippine news agencies and followers have asked me about him, so here is the latest: On 12th May I saw him going up with a Sherpa. He was dress in full down suit (at 6500m!) and going very slowly. On May 18, I saw him, again on a yak, going down, just below middle camp. I was going up, but while passing he said: 'Harry, I summited May 15 and lost one toe�. So the good thing is that he is still alive and can return to his wife and children ( I had given him less than 50% survival chance, but Everest can be strange in her decisions...). Whether he actually summited he should prove himself, I have no further info about that...� - Mt.Everest.net (May 22, 2006)

Dale, or someone from his e-mail has submitted a photo and the following about Dale: "On May 15, 2006, Dale Abenojar, a Philippine-born mountaineer and amazingly the first high altitude climb of his life - finally becomes the first officially recorded Filipino Mt. Everest North Col summiter. The Chinese Mountaineering Association will present Mr. Abenojar on May 22 his certified "Mt. Everest North Col Summit Certificate". We asked for more... Stay Tuned... - EverestNews (May 25, 2006)
