You all know I went home to my province for a vacation; a break from the corporate world and the concrete jungle- but not only that, because my uncle together with his family came all the way from Qatar to celebrate their only son’s 2nd birthday and a vacation as well.
Upon arriving at home I got so excited with their plans. And it’s even more fun because theirs a bunch of us (only that one of our cousin is missing due to an educational tour to China). After the dancing and partying during the birthday celebration, we took off to Barangay Cabarasan. An up stream barangay of our town. It would take 10-15 minutes either by land or water travel.
We enjoyed the fresh farm air and refreshed our selves at Linaw- a waterfall nearby. According to them this water fall is the main source of water of the place. The water is so clear and refreshing – no wonder it’s called Linaw which in English means “clear“.
Not only we had fun at the water fall we also enjoyed the food; freshly cooked peanuts, coconut paired with condensed milk-yummy, green carabao mangoes and a lot more. Which made our stomach angry. 😀 Thanks to Tatay Ben and Nanay Corit for the invitation. And as well to Ate Lina for the wrangler and of course to our dear driver Kuya Yves. 😉
The following day, we hadn’t got any full rest yet, but we are still alive and ready for another outing. As an invitation of our Lola Cris (My grandpa’s Aunt), we visited their resort at Tabok- the Columba Kalipayan Beach Resort. The whole place is called Tabok because it’s just in-front of the town. Just a bridge apart. We had fun under the sun and enjoyed the sea breeze. Their place is just behind the Gamay Pride: Gapo Beach. A beach well-known for it’s fine sand and extreme waves. But it’s still virgin- untouched and undeveloped which makes the whole place more appreciative.
My cousins and siblings had an extreme boat ride with Tatay Eme. They sounded like riding a roller-coaster. 😀 While my Aunt’s Mila and Lorna rode a bangka (a small boat) that has a huge whole on it. They freaked out when they finally realized that the boat is filled with water. While I, had fun capturing every moment. It was my Summer class. 🙂
