Hi guys! How’ve you all been doing? Sorry I haven’t been around lately. 🙂 But I’ll be back anytime after this week, promise. 🙂
So, to catch up with all the kwentos, I’ll tell you much about what I’ve been up to since after April 23.
So basically, April 24 and 25 was rest weekend, and 26th is a Monday which is the day that prohibits us to take the car out. So, I’ma start with the 27th.
April 27, 2010, Tuesday.
I actually don’t remember. Haha. I will get back to this if I remember.
There! I remember. It was the anniversary of my eldest brother and his wife, so we went to Manila to celebrate. I did not take photos, but videos instead, and for this reason I have no inset here.
April 28, 2010, Wednesday.
I know for a fact that it was this day when I was having siesta when I was awakened at around past 3 in the afternoon because of some noise. When I looked outside, it was raining! I even took a video of it. My brother told me I should’ve taken Mass Communication instead, because I was better off a journalist. I wanted to share the video here, but I’m still thinking it out.
April 29, 2010, Thursday.
Road trip day! Lol. Well, we first went to Manila to fetch two of my aunts. We were there noon, so we decided to eat lunch at Retiro, where Original Pares is home to. After which, since my mom is very anxious about me and my brother driving, she had asked a neighbor who was an FX driver to drive us all the way to La Union, where our uncle can meet us.
So, we left Manila at 1, and got to La Union at around 5:30. We joked that if I and my brother had driven, we would arrive at 7. 😄 So, after eating dinner there, we drove to Baguio. This was so far the scariest trip I’ve had. It was very dark of course, plus it was raining hard that night. What’s scarier is actually seeing falling rocks the size of a car tire, and riding with a driver who can barely take full turns without not going over the other lane! Gee, really, I was so scared that my family is in danger with such driver. 😦 But once we arrived at the city, it was a relief! I’m back to Baguio for the nth time! (I’ve been to Baguio every year since I was in 4th grade, joining delegations and contests.) And it was actually unplanned, because our itinerary was only to Vigan, but my uncle said, we might as well go up there. Ah, still, nothing in Manila compares to the weather in Baguio. We basically just spent the night there, before we drive to Vigan the next morning.
April 30, 2010, Friday
So from La Union, we drove to Vigan. Did I mention I don’t sleep during trips? Well, I usually don’t, especially when it’s my first time to go there. It was actually kind of disappointing for me, leaving the coldness of Baguio to go to the hot north, but still, I wanted to see much. 😀
So, we got to Vigan at around 7 in the evening and rested at the RF Mancieto hotel which looked very classic that even their airconditioning system is almost obsolete. After unpacking our things and freshening up, we went out to eat at Max’s even when it’s raining hard.
We went around Vigan through karitelas. It took us three hours to see the place. I took lots of photos, that many I can not anymore try to put them all here. But I’m uploading them all at FB.
So after all that walking, riding and laughing, we were ready to go back to Manila. My mom wanted to go farther North to Laoag. I wanted too, but I was hesitant because that would only mean more expenditures (my parents paid for everything, including souvenirs of all those who were with us) so I just said that we could go there next year, but maybe take the plane instead. The whole trip from Vigan to La Union, I was only asleep. I was so tired from everything. I did not sleep since the night we were in Baguio. I’m usually namamahay, and scaring myself that if I close my eyes, I might see things the moment I open them. Anyway, we arrived home at past 1 in the morning and I was driving really slow because I know that I’m tired and sleepy.
May 1, 2010, Saturday.
So, once home, I went straight to bed and woke up very late. After taking a bath, I fell asleep again and woke up at 5:30 in the afternoon. Kapoy. >_< And still after so much sleep, I went to bed early. LOL.
May 2, 2010, Sunday.
I woke up at 9 in the morning, so late that we were not able to go to church. We just went to SM Center while I left the car at KidZ for a car wash. Avonni was sooo dirty, from all the mud and dirt at Baguio.
May 3, 2010, Monday.
I woke up with a bad headache. It's a holiday though, so we were able to use the car to go to Parañaque to deliver a package. My parents went to Marikina to fetch Nanay Pining and take her to MoA. I wanted to go too, but Tita was lazy. Instead, we watched The Fourth Kind. My thanks to CJ here for posting about this earlier. Had I not known that the documentary was made up, I would not have been able to sleep at all. But anyway, there are things that scare me more than aliens do.
And today is May 4, 2010, Tuesday, and I finished writing this and uploading photos in Facebook. We might be watching Ironman 2 later though.
So, this is all I have so far. 🙂
