I went on a 3-day vacation in Toledo last week in time for its Hinulawan Festival. I've never been in Toledo for so long and I was excited while I was packing up my things for another adventure. I went there with my colleagues and stayed in Sheen's place for the rest of the vacation. Having four of my colleagues living in Toledo City is an advantage for this trip because our foods and accommodation is already guaranteed. Our transportation expenses were not shouldered though but that's fairly fine for everybody.
As an Information Technology student, college was a glimpse of hell for me. There were days when you just want to slit your wrist because you can't get your program running. Those sleepless nights of troubleshooting will leave you anxious the following morning at class. But whether you admit or not, we feel at ease whenever we hear a pal is on the same page.
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.
