B__ch with a long e

There’s an imminent GAD for me, I know. Summer is supposed to be fun, but with me on the frontlines of planning my barkada’s sun and surf escape, I can’t help but have this stress cloud hanging menacingly over my head.

The Bora plan was scrapped due to five-day leave conflicts and mismanaged finances. No biggie. That beach ain’t going anywhere. I still have 8 months to fulfill my lifelong dream New Year’s resolution of bringing my beachworthy bum to Bora. More importantly, not one person in my barkada is bent on going there this summer. The kuripot blood in our veins is indeed potent. :p

So everybody wants to go to the beach and doesn’t want to spend much (or at all, hahaha).

Hence, the idea that I bring them all to Bataan. My Mum’s from Morong and most of my close relatives are there. One of my uncles own a resort and another uncle actually has the entire beach for his backyard. Ergo, we don’t even have to pay a single cent for the accomodation! It’s also typical for my relatives to feed visitors like there’s no tomorrow. So, yep, we don’t have to pay for most of the food as well. The Poblacion wet market has merchandise that wouldn’t dent our wallets. If we decide to go dirt cheap, we’ll just go to our farm and harvest whatever’s in season.

My friends have simple joys and our town has simple things to offer…
* The Beach
The sand’s not white but clean. It’s chipetix pero pretty!

* Bonfire and Marshmallows
Wheee for ghost stories! For the extra oomph, I’ll bring them to the local cemetery.
* Videoke and Beer
Hopefully, I won’t cause a tsunami when I belt my all-time beach pick, Kokomo.
* Snorkling and Petting Pawikans
PGMA recently visited those pawikans. I wonder if they’ve turned antisocial because of it…

* Farm and Picnic
I don’t know if the mangoes are in bloom this time of the year, though. I hope to ride a carabao across the palayan.* Vietnamese Soup
Morong used to be a resettlement area for the Vietnamese refugees. A visit to our town won’t be complete without the savory-spicy soup, Hiu Tieu!

* Matikis Island
I heard it’s quite pristine out there, perhaps I shouldn’t bring Donnie so it will remain unspoilt. Hehe.
* Waterfalls!
It’s an hour walk I heard, but my cousins said it’s worth it, just be careful with the hanging bridge (of death).
* Zoobic Safari
Subic is just 40 minutes away from Morong. After the meet and greet with animals, we can still go to Olongapo for the baratillos!

I can’t wait for the last week of April. Yeah yeah, 3rd week’s been canceled, thus, my GAD.

Take me to the beach!

YOU’RE NOT HIM.

SO YOU DON’T REALLY MATTER TO ME.

Enough said.

Give it away.

I think I gave waaaaaay too much again. Info, I mean. I armed him to disarm me!

Damnit, damnit! Hmmm, strangely though, he didn’t seem to mind that I did. Probably a man who enjoys competition. Great.

I don’t know where this is heading. I’m used going to wherever the road takes me as long as I enjoy the ride. This time, I better use a map. Sketch a plan, at least.

And I better go fig if I want this to be a journey, a destination, or just one hell of a joyride.

Kuya Leaving

Everybody’s going to Singapore. Is Singapore the next Japan? I didn’t care about this phenomenon until Ate Bec texted me the other day and said, “Sha, Kuya Edmund got accepted in Apple. He’s leaving end of March.”

p57.jpgMy favorite male cousin is leaving. Drat. It was only last September that he told me he wants to work out of the country and now he’s freaking leaving. Waaaah! Leaving in less than 2 weeks at that! Eunice, Colleen, and I wouldn’t have a tourguide when we go to Bataan on April. Boohoofuckinghoo.

I got the news about Kuya’s career move Sunday night and I immediately asked him to have dinner with me and Ate Bec the following day. So after my sourcing shift at the MRT Shaw station, I met up with them in Mega Strip. We ate dinner at Dencio’s. Shempre, libre ni Kuya. Hahaha, another effortless receipt for the MATA reimbursement!

There we were, after the sisig, kare-kare and laing, all feeling bloated and bittersweet. Senti, senti. Plans, plans.

p60.jpg p59.jpg p58.jpg

Ate Bec and I abolished the Bora plans. Instead of going to Aklan, we’ll be flying to Singapore to visit our “childhood sweetheart” before the year ends.

Ooooh, and I’m going to look for my long-lost crushie in all of Singapore’s 270-square-mile glory. I know he works there. Yeah, yeah. It’s the new Japan.

I am going to miss my cousin badly. 😦

We are not only bound by blood. We’re bound by love.

Of course, I understand that he has to nail down this opportunity. I have to let him go;  it’s a relief to know that he would still be back.

Girls just wanna have fun.

Newsflash: She’s one of those girls.
You’ve been forewarned, remember?
She’s not here to tell you that she cares.
Because………. she doesn’t!!!!!!

Isn’t this a relief?
Now you don’t have to lie and make her feel special.
Save your pick-up lines for the next gullible girl, dear.
Congratulations. You both want the same thing.

GO FOR IT!
