Infinity and Beyond

June 24, 2012 Tsina 4 Comments

Okay, I had another pahabol sa summer getaway. This was just last week. Oha, one week na lang delayed ang post ko. :P 


We've been wanting to check out Pamarta Bali because of the infinity pool and the cheap rates.    So, last week, we went all the way to Bataan in a bed weather to chillax. :P We were supposed to meet at Genesis terminal in Taft at 6am, but we woke up late. Dwin was there as early as 6am, and he called me at 7am. I thought he was going kill us for making him wait for almost four freaking hours!! Well, that is why Dwin's one of my closest friends, he has that much of patience! :D

We took the bus going to Balanga, Bataan and paid around P200. We left around 11am already. It was a very long ride. We were just expecting 2.5 hours ride, but heck we reached Balanga at around 3pm!! We took the mini bus going to Morong and paid P70. It was quite an uncomfortable ride. :( The three-seater felt like it would just fit two persons. We survived the 1.5 hour ride to Morong. We took an early dinner in Lhine's Burger and Snack Haus. We went to the market and purchase our things for our meals. Dwin was the cook! :D

We got a tricycle to Pamarta Bali and paid P50 for the three of us. We told them of our reservation, and they had only few guests for the night.
Pamarta Bali! :D
and the room!
With Apple and Dwin!
We were the only ones swimming that night. It felt like we rented the entire resort. :P We then had our late dinner courtesy of Dwin's cooking. :)

Dwin made our breakfast. We then went to swim for a while. We had some 'infinity shots'. Ang fail lang maging photographer ni Apple. :P
Apple's fail infinity shot. Wahaha!
I took Apple's infinity shot, and it was better! :P
Apple
Apple wanted to go to the beach. But the waves were crazy, and it was raining a bit. Still, we went in the shore. :P 
and this how bad the weather was

We went back in the infinity pool, and spent few more hours in the water. :P We had to check out by 12nn. We decided to stop by the Pawikan Conservation Center before heading back to Manila. :) We paid P20 for the entrance fee.
With the pawikan
We had lunch first, then we headed to the mini bus terminal. The ride back home was a breeze. :D We were in Manila as early as 7pm. :)

Summer in Puerto Galera

June 24, 2012 Tsina 7 Comments

Okay, I know, this one's a bit late. But we went to Puerto Galera last March! Wahaha. :P

I had a quick summer getaway with my friends from my previous project - Jayce, Erlie, Bev and Kim (Bev's sister). Regina was supposed to be joining us but she changed her mind the last minute. HMP. I was looking for a vacay during that time so I forced them to join me in Galera. I think, that would be a better option than another night in Central. :D

We were supposed to leave early on Saturday but Bev's shift was until 8am. Auhm, I also woke up late, so was Jayce who was on vacay leave the previous night. So lo and behold, we left Manila at around 10am already. We paid around P145 for the bus fare from Cubao to Batangas port. We were able to watch the cringe-worthy Moron 5 and the Crying Lady. I slept half the time. :P When we reached the Batangas port, we bought a roundtrip ticket already and paid around P500. I have a side-kwento by the way. Someone approached us when we were waiting for the ferry and offered us a room at the White Beach Hotel for a very cheap price to accommodate the five of us. We didn't have a reservation anywhere, and the offer was too tempting so we paid for it already. But when we reached the hotel, they said that we were offered a very cheap price for the room. The person managing the place also told us that there was no available room for us. He was showing us another room which was a lot different from what we paid for. We didn't like his attitude, and he was pretty irritating. Jayce was disgusted at him so he called the owner. We didn't stay there but rather took our payment, and left. So at around 2pm, we were still searching for a place to stay. Good thing, we were lucky to get another one. We stayed at Myra and Medelaine's Place and paid P3000 for all of us which already included the few hours extension. :D We left at around 4pm the following day. :)
Summer Friends. :D
Hey, Galera!
So off we went to the beach even though we missed the sun already. It was still fun though. :)
With Bev and Erlie! :)
With the gels. 
After few hours in the beach cam whoring, we went back in our room to change. We were getting hungry by this time. Jayce brought us in the front seat so we could watch these shows.
Night of fun!
Galera by night!
Auhm, I have a confession to make. I've been actually thinking if I'm going to share this with everyone. But OMG, I got drunk that night, and that was the first ever!! Thanks to the Mindoro Sling!!! 
the culprit
I was so drunk that I forgot my Havs in the beach. Jayce was also drunk. :D We bought a pair of slippers the following morning. Hehe. 

Thank heavens, I didn't have a hangover. So we were back in the beach after we had our breakfast. They tried the banana boat but I wasn't able to because the other group that joined us were already six, and they needed only a group of ten. So, I was their official photographer. :P
Banana Boat
We had few hours of fun under the sun before we snapped back to reality. :P It was just a very quick getaway, but fun just the same. :)

USS it is!!!

June 11, 2012 Tsina 3 Comments

By the way, I did tell you I'd like to visit the Universal Studios Singapore but I couldn't find anyone to go with me. Crap. Well, surprise surprise, I was able to go!! :P


It was Sunday, and my last weekend in Singapore. I was thinking on whether I'd go on USS alone, or scrap the idea entirely. But hey, who could say no to USS? Well, my friends. :D But not me.
Yown!! :D
So sariling sikap ako sa USS! I counted on people's kindness, and I was not disappointed. I would approach someone, a couple, or group of people, and would say "Can you take my picture, please? :)"


I first headed to Madagascar, and tried the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure. It was a river boat ride adventure. Don't worry though, you won't get wet in here.
Madagascar: A Crate Adventure
I proceeded to the Far Far Away, and went in to Shrek 4-D Adventure. I haven't watched any Shrek movies, but I enjoyed this 4-D film experience. 
Shrek
I went to the Sci-Fi City to experience the newest ride - Transformers The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle. This attraction lived up to its name, and it was my favorite of all the attractions in USS. No kidding, it was awesome!! When you visit USS, make sure you'd have a go with this ride. 
The best ride in USS!!
I tried another ride on the Sci-Fi City via Accelerator. This just felt seating on a spinning cup. :P
Accelerator
Battlestar Galactica
Nope, I did not try the Battlestar Galactica. I was alone, if I puke, or something, no one will clean up for me. :P Excuses!! 

Okay, enough of my excuses. :D I just waited for the Hollywood Dreams Parade after the Accelerator ride. I liked the parade, and I was glad that I didn't miss it. The Madagascar and Shrek were my favorite. 
Yey for the Hollywood Dreams
Cute! :D
After the parade, I immediately went to the WaterWorld. I can't miss that! Oh boy, I was really glad I did get in. It was an awesome live water show. There were some cool stunts with real explosions to boot. 
WaterWorld!!
I tried the King Julien's Beach Party-Go-Round. It was  a carousel with King Julien and other Madagascar characters. It was for the kids, and kids at heart. :P
For the kids! :D
The last attraction that I went into was in New York via Lights, Camera, Action which was equally cool. The story setting was a major hurricane will hit New York City. There were some incredible special effects. 
Lights, Camera, Action
I was also able to see the a street entertainment like this one. I also saw one in the morning. 
The Gels!
Sulit ang S$74 ko. :P It was a fun and wonderful experience for me. Now, I've been wanting to go to Disneyland, hopefully with friends. :P I need to start saving!!


There is nothing wrong going solo in a trip, or in an event. Sure thing, it would be more enjoyable if I was with my friends, or family. But I just couldn't resist USS. :D If you have a chance to do something solo, do it. I can vouch for people's kindness. See, dami kong solo pictures. :P
Say Cheese! :D

It's my birthday! Yey! I attended Lyndon's and Rhea's wedding today. I had coffee with Nami and Cat after the reception! :)

We had an ice cream party at home! Benta sa kids ang cone! :D

I'm happy and grateful for this another year. There are so many things going on with my life. I'll be back to school this coming week. I'm excited to see my friends again. But I think, I'm quite worried on my subject this sem. I have to come up with a new topic fast! I have Compre slated on August as well! Kaya ko ito! :P

It's another year. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year ahead! :)
