Undas 2008

October 30 to November 2, 2008

10.30.08 - I thought maraming byahero pauwi pero mejo maaga pa pala yung byahe ko kaya maluwag pa sa mga terminal. Swear, hindi mo gugustuhin makipagsabyan sa libo-libong Pilipino na umuuwi ng probinsya tuwing panahon ng Undas. (I want to thank the administration of St Jude College for declaring Oct 31 as a non-working holiday, kaya nakauwi ako ng Oct 30 pa lang! Wahoo!!!)

Sa lahat lahat ba naman ng aksidente kong makakasabay sa barko, ang soul sister Dimpled Ann ko pa!!! Heehee... Nagsama na naman si Marian at si Maria Ann!!! Swerte! Chikka galore ever... Pero kulang kami, si Zen pa, na all swamped sa work! Naman! I miss you Zen...

Before going to bed, movie with Kuya & Bunso: HANCOCK.

10.31.08 - First dalaw to Tita Lina's (panganay kay Mama's side) puntod. The memorial park is still new, konti pa lang ang mga madadalaw kaya konti pa lang ang mga dumadalaw! Heehee... At the top of the park is an overlooking view of the nearby sea... So peaceful... :)

Right after that, I met up with Dimple again (kasi we can't get enough of kwentuhan!) for dinner. It's our first time to try out Don Ricardo's pizza (Don Ricardo's is owned by one of my bro's bestfriend, RV Saturay). The pizza was great, and the pasta? Oooh Laa Laa!!! Sa sobrang daming serving, haynaku, dka makakahinga! Pizza and pasta: 8/10 stars. Thanks to my Kuya sa paghatid at pagsundo sa Don Ricardo's.

Before going to bed, movie with Kuya and Bunso: THE HAPPENING.

11.01.08 - Woke up early. Tradisyon na taon taon na bumyahe from city at tumawid sa tatlong bundok para makarating sa hometown ni Mama: San Teodoro, Or Mindoro. Andun din nahihimlay ang aking Lolo at Lola sa Mama's side. Kung dati, inaabot kami ng 1 1/2 to 2 hours para marating ang bundok ng tralala, este ang bayan ng San Teodoro, ngayon pwede na ang 30 to 45 minutes. Paano? Sementadong daan (salamat sa DPWH) + mas modernong sasakyan (salamat kay Papa) + batikang driver (salamat kay Kuya!) hehehe.

After dalaw sa mga dapat dalawin (Lolo, Lola, Tito Rudy: 2nd sa Mama's side), we went to a new beach resort somewhere near our ancestral house. Nice place. :) Coconut trees around, cool water, warm sand... Perfect combination. Plus, super tahimik nung lugar. Relaxing!

Dinnertime: I love my Mom to the nth degree coz she never fails to serve hipon/sugpo or any seafoods pag nasa Calapan ako! Heehee... Papa cooked his special bulanglang (kakaiba! hehe) at may inihaw na tulingan pa. Lutong bahay is the best especially when it is served by your very own parents. Well wala naman kaming yaya/maid kaya buti na lang! Haha.

11.02.08 - Last day ng food trip. Ref cake, fruit salad, chocolates, humba, menudo, at marami pang iba! Hehehe... Pwede bang dalhin ang trabaho ko sa Mindoro para dun na lang ako tumira? Lagi may pagkain! Hihi!

I tried using Mama's Korean-inspired bicycle. Mama uses it for her morning exercise. Sobrang hanga ako sa parents ko because they never fail to do their morning regimen everyday! They're already up @ 5am and they WALK / JOG/ BIKE around the vast rice bodega of their office (NFA) na walking distance lang from our home. Everyday yun! So astig for a 56 & 54 y/o couple. Daig pa ang mga sedentary nilang anak! Haha...

Fastcraft back to Batangas @ 3:45 pm; bus from Batangas to Manila: 5pm to 7:45pm. Thank you Lord for the safe byahe.

Sobrang saglit na bakasyon, tapos na! Back to the real world...
