After two weeks of keeping myself away from my laptop (blame Mobile Legends for that HUEHUE), I’m finally back to finish this long overdue blog post about our recent adventure at one of the most instagrammable spots in the country: the Masungi Georeserve in Rizal. The Masungi Georeserve is a conservation area and a rustic rock…
“Pwede na kayong magtayo ng exhibit sa dami ng drawing na lakad ng barkada mo” — as this famous saying goes, I really thought Kars and I’s trip to Pinto Art Museum (PAM) would never push through. But as art enthusiasts and self-proclaimed painters (mwahaha), we were really eager to fit this trip to our busy schedules. It took…
Last 7 January, which happened to be my birthday hihi, we were given the opportunity to witness one of our ex-officemate’s happiest moments in his life: his union with his ladylove (ayiiee~~ best wishes guyth!) in Pampanga. We left Elbi at 4 AM and arrived in Pampanga around 8:30 AM. The trip was really fast that even…
Our short escape has finally come to an end. I honestly don’t know what to feel when I woke up on the last day of our trip. I felt happy because I was able to visit new places and learned new things. Somehow I also felt regret because of the places we weren’t able to see. Sad because we are leaving. And nervous because of the pile of emails I’m expecting to read once I come back to the office the following day. HAHA.
February 14. The official day of hearts. The day full of love. Love is truly in the fresh soothing air of Siquijor. It was eerily dark when we set our feet on the Island of Black Magic so we didn’t really witness its majestic features that Saturday night. But the moment our road trip began, I fell in love with the island in an instant.February 14. The official day of hearts. The day full of love. Love is truly in the fresh soothing air of Siquijor. It was eerily dark when we set our feet on the Island of Black Magic so we didn’t really witness its majestic features that Saturday night. But the moment our road trip began, I fell in love with the island in an instant.
It was around 4 in the afternoon when we reached the Tagbilaran Port. We first checked the schedule of Lite Shipping for ferries going to Siquijor. The soonest schedule was at 8 o’clock that evening. Unfortunately, the Ticketing Office was closed when we arrived but will open at around 7 PM according to one passerby.
The island hopping tour was arranged by the resort we stayed at. We met with Mang Carlos, our bangkero, at around six in the morning. While waiting for the boat to be ready, we had the chance to take photos around the beach.
We had our lunch at the Loboc River Cruise Floating Restaurant. Mang Kulas arranged our reservation beforehand so we didn’t had any trouble with the line. The buffet/river cruise costs Php 480.
Our Bohol escapade officially began on the second day. The pension house that we stayed at recommended Mang Nicolas who officiated our tour. I really enjoyed our road trip since I’m a big fan of Farmville. There are lots of fields and farm animals, the views are breathtaking, and the air is cold and refreshing.
After almost a year of anticipation, our Bohol-Siquijor trip has finally arrived. We’ve been waiting for this moment since early last year when AirAsia had its promo of round trip tickets from Manila to Tagbilaran vv.
Getting up on our second day was probably the biggest struggle we’ve faced on our Aurora escapade. We were planning to visit the Mother Falls, but all of our energy seems to have run out from yesterday’s extreme adventures. Instead of going out, we just ‘wasted’ our time by having a movie marathon: Jesabelle and Big Hero 6. O diba ang productive. Haha.
When we finally had the strength to go out, we went to Ampere Beach in Dipaculao.
This Aurora escapade has forever stayed as a ‘plan’. We finished our thesis, graduated, and walked our own paths without having this trip accomplished. Finally, the plan became a reality.
