Luckily... Unluckily...

We're lucky we're on the side where the tsunamiS can't get us.

But then, unluckily, there's almost nothing to thank for because tens of thousands died and around a million people missplaced.


If that were to happen here... Metropolitan Manila would sink and so would most other near-the-port cities we have. (NCR have Manila Bay though [look for a map] so we might just not suffer, much, if that were to happen to us.)

And to think that we just had 3 storms, several fires, (and still at present) finacial headaches, etc...


Oh well, unluckily, our Vacation is drawing to an end. But, luckily, that means we're gonna see each other again!

See you all on January 3, 2005!
Advance Manigong Bagong Taon sa inyong lahat!

A Sweet-Bitter Christmas Eve and Christmas...

There, the title of this post just said my story. ;p

Oh well, those two days were wonderful(not to mention memory-filled)!

My mother came home from the province!
I had my Christmas Eve midnight mass with you-know-who (our first!) and while we were on our way home there were firecrackers and everytime they go BANG! it made her... well... hold me more tightly. ^_____^

etc... etc... etc...

Oh well, the bitter part is for me to keep. I would like to keep some for myself. :D

Those two days taught me that happiness can not only be found in things or even, sometimes, in events, but also in ourselves. Happiness is also how we perceive things that come our way.

(anlabo ko...)

Anyway! Advance Happy New Year to all!!!

Let us enjoy our Vacation!

Maraming nangyayari sa buhay ng isang tao (natin) na parang gusto nating i-share pero ayaw nating ipaalam sa publiko. ;D

Sun, Sea, and Sand in Subic (part2)

We woke up the next day... I mean around 9 that morning, we arrived at around 1am. All of us took a bath and left at 11:30 for the Sunday Mass.
Tulad ng binanggit sa blog ni Ria Hazel, nakakatuwa yung chimes sa mga puno sa (duh...) labas ng simbahan. After the Mass, we went to Ocean View where we waited for the rest of the people (and the FOOD!) to come. Carmela went back home to do some things while the rest of us stayed.

We have changed already nung dumating na yung pagkain then, guess what Ria and I did, we headed straight for the sea! Mga hayok sa tubig alat! (And to think that I wasn't supposed to swim... Sorry Mom.)
The sun was burning (and so was the sand) but apparently I was having temporary heat insensitivity, probably due to the numbing effect of the Joy to be in sea water again...

After some time I left the water to feed myself. Btw, Great food Mela! Then went back to the sea. Somebody said that the water wasn't that salty, I dunno... maybe.

After intervals of dipping/swimming and eating the food, an aqua-bike thing was rented for us to enjoy! Daisy and Jenny were already there by this time. Abby Lappay came later.

We got out of water when it was nearly sunset and walked along the shore while stopping once in a while to take pictures of ourselves with the green hills and the blue sky as background.


Then it was dark. We ate, a lot, and rested for a while.
Time for night swimming! Carmela finally joined in the swim and all of us was having a good time. :D Miss Birthday girl introduced her friends in Subic and one became particullarly very well acquainted with us as we are with him. He's ER. No, not Emergency Room. He's .a.k.a. Ernesto. (ala telenovela...)

We left at around ahhh... Sorry we almost lost track of... uh... time(?). Oh well, Ria told me just now that we left the sea at 9.

We were wet and tired but unsated... Ahum... So we went back to Mela's house to have some real shower. Then we went out again for the night market, then the fair (Wonderful cable car! it's my first time!Darn/exciting/deadly roller coaster... sayang di parin ako nakasakay ng ferri's wheel. By this time I was feeling the unimaginable great toll of sleeplessness and exhaustion... I WAS NEVER SO "TIRED" IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.), and lastly Gigolo. The last stop was, well, funny & annoying. Just read Ria Hazel's blog. :D

Then we went home (I was so at home there already) to have some "sleep".

Sun, Sea, and Sand in Subic (part1)

It became one (if not the most) of the memorable experiences I had...

We arrived at Carmela's house in Olonggapo at around past midnight.
1st impression: wow...nasa probinsya na uli ako... The air was cool and fresh, amoy probinsya nga.
Carmela then later led us to our room.
2nd impression: Aba! Parang retreat to ah! That's what hit me when I got into the spacious room where we slept during our stay there, a good premonition of the wonderful things that had happened in the following days, nights, and ungodly early mornings. :D

(Btw, read the modifications in my description just below "non-naïve".)
