Hello there! In my last post, I said that I would be blogging about our trip to Batangas if I didn’t pass out. Well I did so here I am making up for yesterday’s supposed to be post! Haha! Anyway, let me take you through what happened yesterday with photos! :)

Someone from my Mama’s side of the family died. I wasn’t really supposed to go because 1. I had AM duty the next day, 2. I still haven’t recovered from the week before (PM duty and Midterms week. How I survived I do not know) and 3. because no matter how hard I try I couldn’t set my body clock back on track and ended up reading a book until I fell asleep. So anyway, the following morning my Papa went in my room to make sure I wasn’t coming with them. For some unfathomable reason I went up, showered and dressed while all the while acting (and looking) like a zombie. Sobrang antok and sabaw ko lang! I was the last one to get ready and they were in a hurry to leave, so I didn’t have the time to put make up on (let alone brush my hair!) Haha!

Fact: I can survive without brushing my hair. I can survive without putting make up on. But I cannot, I repeat, cannot survive a long road trip without bringing any food with me. I do not know how I managed to make coffee and stuff tikoy in ziplock bags in less than a minute, but you know, food does that to you. Haha! Also, I just have to say this. I love Tikoy! It was Chinese New Year yesterday so the house was full of it. I wish I could eat Tikoy all year round! :)

Another fact: I love reading books so much that I read books during the times when I’m supposed to be catching up on sleep. I’m currently rereading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I have been rereading a lot of books recently. I’ve had these books since I cannot remember when. I think I had them when I was 15 or so. I reread books because I want a newer perspective, now that I am older. I don’t know if I’m making sense right now, but yeah. Haha! :)

So anyway, here are more photos!

Hello, Batangas!

Big Bulalo pots. I love Bulalo! It’s one of my all time favorite ulam!

When I ran out of food and when my eyes started sending "Cha stop reading we beg you!" messages to my brain, I started taking photos of the fields and the sky. This is another random thing I always do during road trips. I do not know why. I’m so weird haha!

I know this post is so full of “facts” but here’s another one: I haven’t seen the ocean in three or so years (if I remember correctly, that is) The place we went to wasn’t really one of those sandy beaches but I couldn’t help but get excited on seeing the ocean once again. My sibs and I would scream “beach!” in very annoying high pitched voices every time we see a glimpse of ocean water behind the trees and houses. Haha! First time in a long time eh. Pagbigyan! :P

Tommy and Andrei.

This was me screaming (though I doubt you can see it in the photo) when I almost got wet by the water. Please do not think I’m maarte or something. I’m really actually a cowgirl at heart and I’m game for anything. It’s just that I wore the first things I saw in my closet that day (Obvious naman diba? Tingnan niyo naman suot ko. Haha!) and I didn’t even think of bringing slippers so getting wet feet wasn’t an option. Haha! :P

By the way, please excuse the quality of the photos. I still do not have my camera with me. I only used mobile phones for these. (Hire me! I’m raising money to get my camera fixed!) :D

Dear readers, meet zombie Cha. Anyway, this was what I wore. Just got out of bed ang peg! Also, very appropriate ang outfit ko diba! Charot!

Took a photo in the street! I’ve always wanted to do this! Wala kasing masyadong dumadaan. Probinsyang probinsya! :D

Then it was time to go home. I had nothing else to do (again) so I’ll leave you with photos of the sky and sunset.

I’ll be going to sleep now! I still need to wake up early tomorrow (AM duty) I hope everyone had a great day! Good night guys! :D
