May 1: Crismar Fishing Resort, Los Banos, Laguna
First of all, shame on you GMA for not moving the Labor Day holiday to Monday! Anyways, this was with the Laguna folks. It was really sweet to be here because everybody’s just missing me, specially the kids. (awwww!!!) Almost everyday, they were texting me, “Ate KC, kelan ka babalik dito?” God, I love these kids! (ages range from a naughty 5-yr old boy to blossoming 16-yr old girls). It’s the first time for most of them to see me after I left Intel. (I stayed in Laguna for the latter part of my years at Intel, fyi)
After swimming, I found my face looking like this:
May 18-20: Party Hearty Puerto Galera :)
This is considered to be a reunion of my Intel superfriends: Myk and Lisa. (Xtian is in Penang, bad!). Being the party lovers that we are, we’re so so so excited to see the place. It’s my and Lisa’s first time to be there. Even Mike is anticipating I suppose the last time he went there was really fun.
Lisa was the appointed organizer for the event. She settled for Coral Cave resort she spotted in the Internet after getting pissed with how the Coco Beach agents in Malate treated her. So around 11 AM, we arrived at Sabang beach where some crew from the resort will pick us up. Before long, we arrived at the resort eagerly.
In the resort, we were like “Ok, so where’s everybody? Where are the people?” It appeared that we’re the only borders of the resort for the night. Mike was explaining that this is not where the party is. It’s in the White Beach, the other side of Puerto Galera. We are in Sabang beach! Lisa’ was so apologetic because we have yet to travel around 45 mins – 1 hr in order to get to the place. But everybody’s spirit was cooperative. It’s as if saying in unison, “We’re already here! Let’s make the most out of our stay. Look at the positive side; we’re having this resort only for ours in the night. And tomorrow some 12 guests will be arriving.”
While waiting for our orders for lunch, we roamed around the resort and found that it’s not bad after all. We found out that it’s a diving center so most likely only foreigners visit it. The view is really beautiful as seen from the resort and really tranquil. Well, take out points for not having a videoke. :D See pics below:
