I went 67 kilometers far from home to send my petition to our Lady of Simala (Birhen sa Simala). It was my first time to visit this Castle-like church in the Southern part of Cebu and I felt so blessed to have visited it. Its enchanting building structure reminds me of Disney princesses and fairy tales.
Greece is one of the countries that I want to visit because I have always been a fan of its architecture most especially during the 8th-6th century BC. In order to achieve the goal, I need to fly 9,939 kilometers from home and wait until I can officially fund myself. But before I knew it, Greece is just an hour drive from my city and it is just right around the corner.
So just a few days back, Jee, a dear friend of mine, invited me on an out-of-town spontaneous escapade. Thrilled of this spontaneous idea, I decided to go with him. I also tagged along my PIC (partner-in-crime) so he can meet these awesome buddies that I have. We did not discuss any further details of the escapade (estimated budget, itinerary, food preparation, etc). That night, I just packed my things: my rashguard, spare underwear, towel and some vanity kits that I tend to bring along with me anywhere I go. I even squeezed the remaining money I have left from the sideline job I had. And on the following day, we geared ourselves up for the long day ahead.
went on a vacation across my island a day ahead an approaching storm. Sounds challenging? Yeah, but that's not the worst part. The worst part is I went there on the last week of December which means New Year is just around the corner and I got stranded in an island, away from my family, and with no cash at hand! Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to me. I thought I'm gonna spend my new year stranded in an island. Well of course, things got better later on. I could just laugh at this experience now.
