Today, I visited the Website of Jim Paredes of Apo Hiking Society. I found his Website when I tried to Google about 1986 EDSA Revolution in the Philippines a year ago. On that day, all I did was read his posts whole day. I gathered so many insights and reflections in every thoughts he posted. Apo Hiking Society is an extra ordinary group that will always be in the hearts of Filipino.
*******As a Recap: The Apolinario Mabini Hiking Society, popularly known as Apo Hiking Society is a Filipino musical group who started in 1969 at the the Ateneo de Manila high school. The original members were:
- Lito de Joya
- Sonny Santiago
- Gus Cosio
- Renato Garcia
- Chito Kintanar
- Kenny Barton
- Bruce Brown
- Butch Dans

- Ric Segreto
- Goff Macaraeg
- Doden Besa
- Jim Paredes
- and Boboy Garrovillo.
- Danny Javier joined the group.
Apo has become the principal adherent of the Original Pilipino Music (OPM). The Apo also became involved in record production, talent management and organizing artists under the "Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit" or O.P.M. which means "Organization of Philippine Singers/musicians". The group expanded its activities into establishing and furthering the careers of new OPM artists in the Philippines. - source: wikipedia.org
