Let me talk about our Vacation. (This is going to be a long post)
I should say BLAST!
Actually before we start the trip, Mac and I have some small fights over and over again and it’s kinda exhausting, so I told myself this trip will either break us or make us.
1st day: waking up early, taking the bus to the airport since train was not yet available, upon arrival at the airport we found out that our ticket does not include luggage so we have to pay additional amount. Everything went smoothly after that. We ate breakfast inside the airport, as usual like our trip to Cebu, we ate ramen!
On the plane, I was just asleep cause I only have short hours of sleep due to rush packing the night before. Upon arrival in Manila, we ate at Manhattan meat lovers at yellow cab.
And then on the plane from Manila to Iloilo I fell asleep once again. When I woke up, we were arguing again due to some reason that I can’t remember. When we went out, we meet his Aunt who is really a warm person, although she keeps on entertaining us by telling us lots and lots of stories, just imagine 2- 3 hrs drive to Capiz with all her stories. I just felt like I’m on the right place. But that is just the start. We passed by Gaizano Mall and we ate at Mang Inasal, see? It’s a constant food trip! Haha!
We arrived at their house (which is located in the fields) around 6 pm. It’s kinda scary for me though, since I am used to the city life, lights are not that bright, it’s kinda dimmed, it’s also so quiet compared to what my life in the city used to be. I keep on telling myself to relax, that nothing wrong will happen, that I’m safe here. What actually scares me is that according to rumors, Capiz is a province where Aswang (monsters) live. I knew I’m old enough for that folklore but I can’t help it! I can hear every little sound, it’s just ugh, weird. We went to bed at 8:30 pm but I fell asleep at 12 am. Then just when I thought I would wake up in the morning, damn it, it was still 2 pm when I woke up. It was like WTH for me, I don’t know how I managed to go to sleep again but when I did, I woke up at 4 something am. Then I cried again, and begged to Mac to watch me sleep which he agreed, lucky me. The next thing I knew it’s morning, thank God.
I suggested that we better stay in a hotel in the city nearby but he told me that it will just make things worse, first it will be embarrassing to his Aunt and secondly we will take the bus to Boracay the next day and staying in a hotel in the city will just delay us.
2nd day: We meet his sister, Liezl at the Gaizano Mall in Roxas City and then we went to the bay where there are a lot of restaurant serving sea foods and you will have to eat beside the beach which was very refreshing. Best thing is we ate in our bare hands that made our food taste better.
We walked along the bay afterwards where we have some picture taking. Upon going home, we passed by a big statue like the one in Brazil. The view is just breathtaking. A lot of greens made me feel better after that sleepless night.
We also passed by Gugma (love in bisaya) beach since it’s just 20 minutes away from their house. It seemed like it’s going to rain so we just spent less than 20 minutes, we just took pictures and savor the beach, I don’t think that beach is ideal for swimming for me though. We also found this! A small crab.
That night there was a black out, so we have to fan ourselves, Mac offered to fan me just for me to sleep. In thirty minutes electricity resumed and we managed to sleep, finally. This time I just woke up one time, and then I didn’t cry anymore! Oh yeah! Way to go Cindy!
To be continued…
Watch out for part 2 for our Boracay stay! :D
