Weekend

June 26, 2017 Tsina 1 Comments

It is a long weekend, and did not schedule a trip anywhere because we attended the graduation of Prof last Saturday in UPLB. We spent the night in Pansol. It was quite a long time since the Team Tadhana had get together. We had lots of kwento over drinks in the pool. We had the pool by ourselves, yay. John and Alvin missed this though. I brought him to meet them. He already met my college friends, and few of my work friends in the previous company. He met my family twice in the province too. Wala pa kami one month, besh.

I met the Team Tadhana  two years ago, during my birthday trip in Batad. We became good friends since then. We celebrate each other's milestone. We were up until 5am the following day, and woke up at around 8am to check out. Kaantok besh. But we had fun definitely. 
We went home and slept for the day, and then he brought me to his family dinner. That was the second time I meet them. We were a bit underdressed though. :P 

During this long weekend, I had time to blog, and sort photos for the photobook as well. I've been meaning to start printing my travel photos. I started on this today, yay. I say well-spent long weekend.

Boracay Birthday

June 26, 2017 Tsina 1 Comments

I celebrated my birthday in Boracay. Hmm, that was my second time to celebrate my birthday in Boracay, but my nth time in that wonderful place. I consider it my happy place. That was also the first time to celebrate my birthday with him, I shared my happy place with him this time.

We were supposed to visit Antique as well, but I got the room at Willy's Hotel at a very good price that I couldn't let it go. We planned to at least do a day trip in Antique so we booked a room at Aranas-Carillo Travellers Inn in Kalibo, but the flight got delayed, and we overslept a bit. We just ate the crispiest liempo in Kalibo at Ramboy's to make up for this. Very tasty and really crispy liempo, try this place when you visit Kalibo, alrighty? 
We left Kalibo a little over lunch, and took more than an hour on the van + boat ride to Boracay. We immediately checked in at Willy's. We rested a bit, and started to explore the island. Plus photos, I brought the camera with us so I could do a bit of practice. Puro practice, besh. :P

Per our agreement, I will arrange this trip, and he'll research on places where we could eat. Easy peasy, mister. Since that was my birthday, we had dinner at Bar Lo in Two Seasons, he got me the best four-cheese pizza ever! We super love it. We even came back on our last day for the four-cheese pizza. :P
Since he splurged a bit on our first night, we ate at Smoke Resto for our lunch on the second day. This is located in D'Mall, we tried the sizzling bulalo. We ordered bulalo and beef salpicao. I personally like beef salpicao, it's tasty. Smoke Resto is a cheapo but good place to get your food in Boracay. For the dessert, I brought him in Zucchero Cafe, an unassuming cafe at Station 2. This was a discovery from the Boracay trip in February this year. I love the cakes here, we got the brazo de mercedes and sansrival. We had an isaw night for dinner. We went to find Merly's BBQ and got our cravings satisfied. 
Since our hotel accommodation came with a buffet breakfast, we usually took late lunch. We were eyeing the Cha Cha's Beach Cafe, but it looked a bit expensive. We checked the menu during one of our walks and found the menu appealing at competitive price. We had our late lunch here on our third day. We got the formaggi and the winner winner chicken. This cafe has glowing reviews and we couldn't help but agree that they have really good stuff going on them. But I still vote for Bar Lo's four-cheese pizza as the best pizza ever. :P
For our late dinner, we tried the Boracay Toilet, because this is near Willy's, and been wanting to try this place. We only got the tortang talong because we were craving for it, but been utterly disappointed. For someone who always finishes his food, he left more than half of it untouched. It was that bad. To make up for the disappointment, we walked to D' Mall and had the mango madness at Lemoni Cafe. This lifted our spirit a bit. 
On our last lunch at the island, we went back at Bar Lo. Because four-cheese pizza. I told you, we love it. :P Food trip galore on Boracay, we had Jonah's Fruitshake every now and then, because banana choco peanut fruitshake is love. We went to Real Coffee to get calamansi muffin for pasalubong

We stayed at Boracay for at least three nights and four days. Mostly spent beach bumming and exploring the island. Oh, and food trip. I love Boracay at this time of the year, no lumot but crazy waves and a bit of rain every now and then. We got tired playing with the waves. But enjoyed the crazy waves, at least I did. :P

Camera

June 12, 2017 Tsina 0 Comments

I am another year older! Yay or nay? :P I celebrated my birthday in Boracay, and enjoyed few days beach bumming in there. Plus food trip, and had a bit of practice on my camera. My favorite subject is very patient with me. 

Yup, I got my own mirrorless camera now. I used to want a DSLR, but I find it expensive and bulky during travels. But the Sony A6000 is travel-friendly, plus has a lot of potential to capture every moment perfectly. Well, that is if I get any good. :P 

I was torn between the Sony A6000 and the Fujifilm XA3 but decided on the Sony A6000 because of the good reviews. Both have good reviews though, but the Sony one got better reviews. I've also been scouting on where to get the camera for the past weeks. My mind was set on getting it. He offered to shoulder half the amount as his birthday gift, Christmas gift and also Valentines gift just in case he forgets it. Ha ha! He is the most generous person ever!

But yup, I've got my own camera now!!! I am thinking of starting a photo portfolio to showcase how I will evolve as a photographer. Come on, I will get better, right? :P

I am grateful for another year, and for the birthday gift. My heart is happy.
