saan francisco? san francisco!

airport arrival time: 9:00AM
hotel check-in time: 3:00PM
room status: all rooms occupied till check-in time.
reaction: violent

Sitting my butt off for almost 24hrs, I decided to leave my baggages at the front desk and took a walk in the streets of San Francisco. Prior to leaving Manila, I decided to just wear slippers to avoid the hassle of removing footwear at the airport security check point. Big mistake! I forgot how cold it could get compared to the hot-humid-sweat-making air in manila.

So there I was, toe nails turning violet, walking with no real destination in mind. Good thing i've came across a cafe with free WiFi access. So a cup of hot chocolate and 5hrs later, I was finally checked-in.



Before sleeping, I was so happy to see a Digital alarm clock that can use its built in CD player as an alarm. Being a noob that I was, I just set it to CD play alarm then slept...

for 12hrs...

Good thing it was still a weekend so all was good.

So Sunday evening, selected CD alarm mode again then slept..

for 12hrs...

Frustrated I played the CD to know its content then lo and behold! It was a sleep and relaxation CD!



My first dinner there, I decided to eat at Burger King which was a few blocks away from the hotel. With a mind-set of 1 week San Francisco and the rest in Barbados, I only brought my wind breaker jacket. So with more cold air than wind to break I've learned my lesson.

narita ako....

it has been a while since my last post. I was in manila back then.. now here I am, waiting for the connecting flight in Narita airport to San Francisco.

A lot of stuff is stirring my brain fluids at the moment. Me being here means that I'm growing (sadly not vertically) up and need to think more and more of the future. We can't really control the future.. but at least we can try and steer it to a point of satisfaction.

man, it's lonely out here... but I need to keep on steering for our future.

if there's somebody calling me on....

It all started with a stare.
then the teasing starts.
I kept on denying what I truly feel.
but like a container that would eventually fill.
my heart bursts out.
and all was spilled.

a year has passed.
so quickly if i may add.
the 12th monthsary
or simply put,
Our 1 year anniversary.

Happy 1st Anniversary Mushy!

she's the one...

yey bora!

it was friday and it also was the 13th, yet I can't contain my excitement. T'was because that day was the day we went to Boracay! It was 3 night and 4 days of absolute fun under the sun and moon na rin.

The previous week mushy and i went to an intense stomach diet of fat burning soup. At first i was skeptic about the idea of eating just veggies in tomato soup and fruits day after day after day (kasi 3 days lang), but hmmm.. how would i say this... i loved it more than mushy. :))

So back to bora, the plan was we will eat to our hearts content after our endeavor or should i say enDEVOUR of veggies and fruits. So after the long trip and skipping lunch, we were finally there and very much hungry.

So after settling down in the comfy Orchids resort [which should give me a discount the next time around for obvious reasons] we walked the path of white sands and found a turo mo luto ko restaurant [which won't give me reason for obvious reasons] we were ready to order.

mushy was so happy to get a hold of the menu.

[there should have been some photos of food here but i was too hungry at that time]

After dinner we got separated with the others so we just went night swimming with the corn smelling weeds and then retired back to orchids thereafter.

no wonder we couldn't find them..
one was turning invisible and the other one is a friend of
darker than black :))

after some good night's sleep, it's time to go snorkeling and island hopping.

snork snork snork.

we saw a lot of sea creatures and was lucky enough to spot a sea monkey!

after a lil bit of snorkling we ate a feast. Ironically, I was the one who ate the least. I still don't know if i should thank the soup or hate it because it changed my stomach capacity. :p

After eating next stop was island cove.

the only group picture we had :))

This place has 2 caves that also has an opening near the sea. So we were like in 8 waves only this was real. for more photos visit mushy's bora photo.

It was about 4:30pm when we finished so after some more...

feet grinding.


(which i thought was jonel's)

we finally decided to call it a day.

The next morning it was for some of the gang to leave. Well, Glenn, Goy, Mushy and I decided to get another day out of the bora adventure.

the survivors

first couple

second couple

The day after our last day in bora is our first anniversary. So what better way to pre-celebrate it than to do something special. :D

up up and away!
(Thank you to the magnificently sun burned Glenn for taking our photos)

After the sky high experience, it's time to go take a dip again.

and so before going dark...

and some henna tatoo..

we decided to go to D' Mall.

and tried to score 28.

but utterly failed. :))

after buying some souvenirs and going to Jonah's again...

and collecting some more white sands...

it's finally time to sit back, relax and enjoy our final night at boracay.
