When in Palawan

My “Huling Hirit sa Tag-init” blog post. My “I tried my best to have that beach body” vacation. It was announced that Summer officially ended, but here I am just starting to enjoy “Summer”. We booked this El Nido, Palawan trip around January or February this year. No definite plans really, we just talked about it 2 or 3 days before the said trip, how spontaneous right?

Day 1 – Adventure starts now!

Nothing much happened on the first day since what we basically did the whole day was to travel.

  • Did some last minute packing cause I decided I don’t want the bag I’m gonna be using.
  • Had a hard time hailing a cab. Tried using GrabTaxi/GrabCar but as you know, the internet sucks. so yeah.
  • Got stuck in fucking traffic. Hello EDSA!
  • Arrived at the airport just in time.
  • From Puerto Princesa, we traveled to El Nido for another 5 hours via van.
  • Arrived at El Nido around 9:30 and had to ride the tricycle for another few minutes to reach Hadefe Cottages.
  • Got amazed by how the tricycle could exactly fit in the little streets we passed through.
  • Slept immediately for our tour will start at 7AM the next day.

Day 2 – Island Hopping Tour C

Woke up to this beautiful view!

Helicopter Island, Talisay, Hidden Beach,

Day 3 – Island Hopping Tour

Our itinerary for today: Papaya Beach, Big Lagoon, Entalula, Small Lagoon and Shimizu

Flaunting my fat rolls. HAHA

We had our dinner at Trattoria Altorv’e, a place Aiza suggested. The ambiance is really good, though we felt a bit weird since we’re the only Filipino’s who dined at that time. We felt like we were the foreigners in our own country. 🙂 Their pasta and pizza are to die for, srsly! I wasn’t really expecting that it would taste that good! We had their Ragu bolognese, All’ arabiata, Marghereti and Pizza Bianca. I love everything, specially their pizza! I really hope that they’ll put up more branch here in Manila.

Day 4 – Last day in El Nido

Our friends’ flight back to Manila is at 7PM, thus we need to head back to Puerto Princesa immediately after lunch. Since we still have time during the morning, we decided to just have an inland tour to see the Twin Beach – Nacpan and Calitang. It was about an hour drive to reach the beach. And since we haven’t had our breakfast yet, we decided to order some snack. We had Ham and Cheese with Egg and Tuna Sandwich, Pancit Bihon and Avocado Shake. Their food tastes good and the prices are reasonable unlike the one’s offered in the town proper.

Few photos while waiting for our food:

Separation Anxiety – Anxiety regarding separation from places or from people to whom the individual has a strong emotional attachment.

APAT NA TAON. Apat na taon na halos pare-parehong tao ang nakasama mo, pare-parehong mukha ang nakikita mo. Ang apat na taon na yun, matatapos na ngayon. Yung hindi ka pa man nagreresign, nakakalungkot na umalis.

Sa totoo lang, nung una kong nalaman magkahalong emosyon yung naramdaman ko. Malungkot kasi sobrang na-enjoy ko naman yung buong stay ko sa DB. Sabi ko nga nuon, I am already with the best people. Hindi lang naman fats at stress ang na-gain ko all throughout those 4 years. 🙂 I gained friends, a lot actually. And hindi rin naman puro work lang, naenjoy ko lahat ng team building, summer outing, badminton session, christmas party at kung anu-ano pang activities ng project! I guess that’s what I’m going to miss most too.

50th Wedding Anniversary

01

Just a quick post, last August 28, my grandparent’s (Father’s side) celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. A simple mass was held around 6AM at St. John of the Cross Parish in Pembo, Makati City. 2 of my Aunt from Canada and Abu Dhabi stayed here for 2 weeks just to be able to attend this special family gathering.

This was followed by a reception at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s at San Juan. Their food is so great and the place is okay too. I wasn’t able to take much picture since I arrived late and had to leave early cause I still have work after. Also, all for 90 round crinkle taffetta tablecloths would probably look good on their interior for events like ours.

Here are some pictures with my favorite people:
