Quezon - my paradise...ehem...thanks glenny for this pic.
am procrastinating i know...
i have yet to blog about my trip to the Pahiyas Festival last May 14 and 15. I already have a draft of that post, but i can't publish it yet because am too lazy to do the picture thumbnails...
and then there's the Zoobic Safari trip last weekend which i can still procrastinate some more because the pics aren't uploaded yet (damn workstation lockdown disabled our USB ports. sigh)...
and who knows how slow my page loads when people using dial-up accounts try to view it what with it looking more and more like a photo album as months pass...
and well...when internet lockdown at work becomes effective sometime in the very near future (like maybe in the next month at most), who knows when i'll be able to update my blog again.
i swear. am gonna work up the energy to update real soon.
sis mec...took me a looonnggg time to figure it out. i knew i got this from PEx, but for the longest time i've been unable to figure out what it means...TBIYTC
= the best is yet to come
ko lang pala makikita. in big fonts pa. hay! and to think i've been visiting this site for months!
i dream of...
...fir tree-lined streets
...tulips growing on sidewalks
...beautiful sunsets in the horizon
...swaying palm trees and silvery white sand amidst the clear, blue sea
...yellow leaves falling in autumn
...flowers blossoming in spring
...little birds chirping in the morning
...crickets at night
i dream of quiet, uncomplicated, blissful thoughts everyday,
of a light heart, skipping with delight at each unmarred memory.
i dream of freedom,
of boundless enthusiasm.
i dream of unjaded views and beliefs,
of a fresh, new start.
i dream of a new life.
sigh...is that too much to ask? :(
ang lakas ko naman kay Lord...
I haven’t been sleeping well the last couple of days because I’ve been haunted by (recurring) unwanted dreams of something I try not to think about when I’m awake. The last 4 days, I’ve been waking up more restless, troubled, and distressed than refreshed.
And so, in a desperate effort before I slept last night, I prayed to God not to send those unwanted dreams my way even if just for the night. I badly wanted to rest my mind. I’m tired of thinking troubled thoughts everyday.
I think God heard my plea. He must have swished and flicked his mighty hand to block that particular unwanted dream...
He sent me a nightmare instead.
Hehe. Oh well. Better be thinking about a non-existent mad killer trying to slit my throat in a dark area beside a swimming pool than...something else. :)
Distinctly Galera - Apr 30 to May 2.
We left the Buendia terminal at around 5:30 AM and arrived in White Beach Puerto galera at 3:30 PM. Why did it take us that long? You might ask. It's because we made a mistake of boarding a RORO bound to Calapan that leaves at 9:30AM rather than wait for the ferry going straight to White Beach at 12NN. And of course none of us idiots knew that it takes 3 hrs to travel from Calapan to White Beach. hehehe. I had fun though. We saw more of Mindoro on the way. And we stopped by this pretty view and was able to take pictures.
zinni, jen, jt, me, lette and ireneReservations! Reservations!
And because we thought we weren't pursuing this trip, we cancelled our reservation at the last minute...and ended up having to spend the rest of our afternoon looking for a place to stay. Finally before sunset, with our patience stretched to the very limits, we settled into our crib for the night. It was cool though. We slept so well that we woke up all refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
People, People, Everywhere.
OK. so it was a long weekend. but i didn't expect the beach area to look like a mob hit it. the ferries were carrying throngs and throngs of people nonstop! modern day exodus yata ito. next time, maybe i'll spread out my beach trips over the year. never only during summers. nasstress ako instead of being relaxed.Dancer-Flasher.
On Saturday night, because we were too tired to drink and try out the Mindoro Sling, we contented ourselves with just hanging out at the beach (we couldn't stand staying in this table we originally snagged for dinner because they had the speakers blaring at our faces). At around midnight, we were watching this girl at a bar who was dancing (she's a great dancer and she's really voluptuous) wearing a bikini top and denim shorts. Either she was really drunk or was totally drugged, but when the people's call to "take it off! take it off!" got louder, she finally gave in. at first it was just flashes of her boobs. and then she'd pull at her bikini top for a little while longer...and longer...and longer. she even posed for the camera showing off her boobs! and then it was her shorts. she danced at the pole showing off her black thongs and butt. it made for good entertainment for a while until i felt things were starting to get out of hand. the tanods came to her rescue and stopped the show to the disappointment of the audience. i was actually relieved that nobody from the crowd dared touch her while she was dancing-flashing. can you just imagine how many drunken men are out there that time?Dead Corals.
had it been only a year ago when i raved about how beautiful the corals were in galera? snorkeling was the one thing i was looking forward to in our trip. and i was severely disappointed to see dead and destroyed
corals in the famed coral garden. the colorful plants and anemones that made the underwater world so alive in galera are almost gone. yes there were still lots of fishes, but am guessing they were only staying because they're already used to people feeding them. it was so so sad. i didn't last an hour (or maybe i did). but the waves got me (and the lack of excitement) and made me dizzy so i had to rest by the boat.A Lot of Back Shots.
I don't know why. Maybe our faces aren't worth gracing Irene's digicam but...i noticed that there are more shots of our backs than our faces. hehehe.
Two bottles of Gin, Lime and Sprite.
was all it took to make a mess out of our drunken little group. hehehe. We should have taken a picture of ourselves after downing those GSM Blues. That way i'd have Before and After shots with the concoction's pic in between.
Over-all? I learned that you will only have great fun if you don't let all the stress and pressure overwhelm your trip. That, plus of course, good company who wouldn't let your mood level fall below terrific, and who would pick after your mess and make sure you're safe and warm and tucked up in bed before he falls asleep. :) Thanks JT for taking care of all five of us. hehehe.
How can i blog and not post this pic?
am so sorry guys. it still makes me smile. :) humor me. hihi.
