part one: bolinao

Posted on: July 7, 2013

i don’t really talk about work since i wanted to separate my work life and life outside of it… however, i recently joined my previous company’s reports analysts’ team building. they’re ozummm people who i really like so i’m making this exception. and so we were off…


somewhere down the road … we stopped somewhere to buy water and to pee. wore my adidas neos, they’re ozumm! special thanks to my wonderful sponsor. hahaha! it took us more than seven hours to finally get to


villa carolina … ang pinakamalayong resort sa balat ng planet! hahaha! we all gave a whoop when we arrived, kaw ba naman ma stuck sa loob ng isang van ng ilang oras. anyhoo the place had a bit of a


tropical feel to it. there was a small solar powered hut that i found interesting and the place is filled with wood, planks, grass, and err… cement structures pretending to be large logs. hehehe! there were other interesting things in villa carolina like this…


panda fan … hahaha! shut up, i like pandas. i wasn’t particularly pleased with the rooms because of the salt water showers and weirdly patterned bed sheets… i like myself not tasting too salty and my bedsheets to match… the panda print has made up for this offensiveness. lol.


the view to the sea is pretty… there’s a river, just beside the resort, going into the larger body of water… so we get a nice mix of mermaid colors!


plant life … they had a lot of flowering plants that are oddly placed everywhere, i do hope they’d hire a landscaper once all their renovations are done… i liked the pink flowers and the hanging plants a lot though.


the owners’ daughter had a grumpy cat. i call him grumpeee because he’d try to claw at me before letting me stroke his chin, also i was not able to understand his real name, the owners had an accent, they’re belgian. he looks almost the same as yuki but with blue eyes. and finally there were


butterfly designs everywhere. what, there could be a story behind it… hahaha. they’re pretty though. on the other hand, i’ve been goofing around with the ra team…


camwhoring … the team is composed of around 95 percent females so taking pixxors is a must. above pixxor is of mei, claire, and monic on the pink venice bridge. i think it is the gayest bridge i have ever seen.


eating … they have been planning this trip for ages, and they brought a lot of food, and we ate a lot. i particularly enjoyed the mangoes and eggplants. hahaha!


photobombing … and this is my favorite pixxor of all! sorry claire… at siyempre, we enjoyed the beach…


chanced upon the beach when it was empty! yes, no annoying tourists waddling around… hehehe!


the sand was warm and maybe you can… exfoliate? sand is coarse you know. you can also poke


crab holes … there were a lot of them some as small as coins but this is the biggest one i’ve seen, the diameter is around that of a beer mug. now if get bored with that you can


pick up shells too! i got a little souvenir, it was the cleanest and closest to perfect that i could find and finally when your back hurts you can sit down and


write something from the leftover coral. this i love you was made by ate jen, ganyan talaga pag in love eh. over-all it was an nice experience, before we left though,


i took one last look … might come back someday. here’s a shoutout to the ra team… thanks for inviting me to join your team building. it felt good to be part of something.

yun lang muna.
