Last Week’s LU Adventure

One week has passed since I was in La Union with the go-go friends. I already miss it. i already miss them. 😦

Here’s some kwento and snapshots from one of the best weekends of my life.

Carla and Iya are definitely not anorexic and bulimic.
One of the certain clues that one is a Bene girl is the hefty amount of food she eats. Pag kain karpintero na parang naghunger strike ng isang linggo, yun na yon! Why do you think the pocket of a Bene uniform skirt is rabbithole deep? Kasi puro chibog ang laman!!! Or baka kami lang ni Carla ‘yon! Gawain nung GS and HS, gawain pa rin ngayon! Sa LU, lamon kung lamon. Lafang kung lafang. Para may congregation ng mga anaconda sa mga tiyan namin at hindi naman kami ang nagsusurf eh kami ang laging naghahanap ng nutrients. :p Hindi pa gutom, kain uli. Oh well. Life is too short to waste on crazy things like anorexia. Cardiac delights rock! Go bacon! Go chicharon!

Who’s the coolest Jesus?
Baby Jesus? Adult Jesus? Teenage Jesus? Teenage Jesus!!! Not to provoke the wrath of the higher power through blasphemy but this was an integral part of the Tell a Joke Session in Normi2’s. Mika Nisce is the shit! And Joko and Ejay and the two Tims, too! Ang killer nun, pinaghandaan pa nila ang jokes. May mga kodigo pa! Hahahaha! I couldn’t say the jokes here because they require heaps of facial expressions and hand movements to make them effective. Remind me to deliver them when we see each other. :p But you gotta trust me. Teenage Jesus is the coolest!

Midway is The Way.
They say you are not a certified LU surfer if you don’t go to Midway. So… certified surfer na ako? Hehehehe. Akala ko diner type of goodies lang sineserve nila. But noooooo… Ang daming laman ng menu. Too bad I followed a self-imposed rule na ‘pag breakfast, dapat magbreakfast meal. Hindi na kami natuloy doon maglunch, so I only got to order the Midway American Slam. Eggs, toast, bacon, sausages, and superyummy hashbrowns! Oh and a spoonful of Kassy’s colossal ice cream with brownies and Kwe’s waffles. I have to go back for the baby back ribs! And at least half of what’s in the menu! Hehehe!

You just gotta love Law #10.
According to the 48 Laws of Power, you have to avoid the unhappy and the unlucky people. I’m happy and lucky that I was with happy little punks in San Juan: the LLs Joko and Carla, Kassy (who took one for the team), Kwe (watch Dice and K-9’s Rendezvous video to see her shoulder moves), Cute 1 and Cute 2 Richard and Maia, Ejay (aka Kuya Kuneho to Joko’s Baby Baby status… ako si Lola Bunny), Carlo (na humabol lang kasi nag-effort na bumili pa ng Yellow Cab pizza bago bumiyahe ng LU), Daryl the Aussie Surf Coach (errr.. wait, hindi yata siya pasok sa category), Cashmere Bangbang’s “mom and dad” Tim and Mia, Tim Lansangan (dapat daw complete name eh), the Nisce Bros Mika and Ross, Abe my LFF and steady people whose names I don’t remember but I’d want to see again. 🙂

Who loves Carla? I love Carla! Luke does too!
Finally saw Luke Landrigan in flesh. Akala ko kasi dati alamat lang siya. More than half yata ng friends ko na nagpupunta sa LU para magsurf eh laging may Luke Landrigan stories. Pogi nga naman. And sexy! And maganda ang resort n’ya. (You. Yes you. Go visit San Juan Surf School! Billabong!) And mabait! And what timing! I asked him to participate in the I LOVE CARLA Project because his alamat-status makes him a celebrity in his own right. Then I found out the other day that he’s gonna be part of a TVC that is Carla’s account in McCann. Small world! But tell me, ako lang ba or hawig niya si Jesus? Teenage Jesus is that you? :p

and of course…

Ride the wave.
Or just watch them ride it. 🙂 Sorry naman. Kung gusto ko ng thrill sa buhay, tatawid na lang ako ng EDSA. Kahit si Brad Pitt pa magturo sa akin magsurf, tatanggi pa rin ako. But I was entertained watching my friends (and the hot tourists) ride the LU waves. Sobrang steady. Upo sa buhangin, kinig sa ipod (na puro Kings of Leon and Pussycat Dolls… what a combo), inom ng Red Horse, yosi yosi… perfect. I got stoked! Mwehehe. Feelingera.

Wanna wanna go back. I love you, LU. I love you, my go-go friends. 🙂

The Fast & Furious Baguio Trip

Joko nailed the Baguio-LU trip description in her latest FB note, Amazing and Bitin! True, true! Last weekend was fantastic in different levels and I wish me and the go-go friends can do it again soon!

*****

Amazing: The energy I possessed to pack my things and get to the meeting place Shell-Emerald on time when I only had 8 hours of sleep—accumulated in 3 days. Didn’t even get to sleep much in the trip, maybe because I had too much fun with Kass, Kwe, Maia, Ejay and Daryl in NLEX teasing Richard about overtaking cars, trucks, and jeeps.

Bitin: After dropping our things off in Bauang (where Kwe’s ancestral house is/our home for 2 days), Maia and the boys went to San Juan for the MSA Competition (Ejay competed) while Kwe, Kass, and I went to Baguio to reunite with the LLs Joko and Carla who got there a day ahead. Because there were no aircon buses available and we didn’t want to keep the LLs (Lesbian Lovers) waiting, we decided to take the hataw bus instead. Gutom na gutom na daw kasi si Joko kahit na lumalantak naman ng pretzels habang nagrereklamo na

Gutom na gutom na daw kasi si Joko kahit na lumalantak naman ng pretzels habang nagrereklamo na gutom na gutom na siya. Hehe. Oh and a hataw bus is a bus na walang aircon. Aircool. Humahataw sa daan, so pray for dear life!

lunch @ Cafe by the Ruins * boat ride with the go-go girls

Amazing: We proved that there really is a God because we made it to Baguio alive despite the extreme hatawness of the hatawbus driver. Following Carlo “The Baguio Authority” Errazo’s itinerary, us girls had our brunch in Café by the Ruins. Mmmmmm bacon, daing, French toast, eggs and eggs and eggs, fresh fruit shakes, and probably the best panna cotta I’ve ever tasted. They forced me to order the Spanish omelet with foccacia by the way. Hehe.

Bitin: We went to Rizal Park, Burnham Park, and Central Market after for the boat ride (na nagmistulang kami ang tourist attraction dahil ang tindi naming makatili at makasigaw), belts and wallets shopping (got me a shiny red balloon… made me darn easy to find in the crowd! :P), and hoarding of Mikasan Chocoflakes, Tamtanco Lengua de Gato (better than Good Shepherd’s, so glad I listened to CB!), and Patience Bugnay. Didn’t get to go to the other spots we planned on visiting because we were all itching to be in LU already. And and and, the ukay-ukay sucked. Presyong Maynila na. So that’s one item forever crossed out from my Baguio list.

feeling Ang TV kids * shiny ref balooon

Amazing: Roadtrip to LU was funfunfun because Jake’s so pogi, even if Kwe wants to turn him into blackgirlcar by attempting to rename him Shaniqua. Wtf? Hehe. Funfunfun 1 ½ hours of chocolate mints, kulitan, and 90’s music by DJ Carla na kinarir talaga ang dancesteps ng The Sign, Always, at Tootsie Roll!

Bitin: Because the surfer girls couldn’t wait to get stoked, we went straight to San Juan. Uh no no, we went to Mc Do first for merienda. This is where Carla and I realized na mag-LL rin ang mga bituka namin. Lamon kung lamon. Chicken, spaghetti, sundae, fries… parang hindi kami nabusog sa Baguio. So what’s bitin about this? Kasi after eating, masama pa loob namin and we were thinking of what to eat next and we were already wishing it was dinner already! Gluttony rocks! But not as much as my friends rock. Haha, senti! :p

Amazing and Bitin: Check out the second part of my 1st ever road trip with my Go-Go Friends in the next entry.
