It's More Fun in the Philippines - Palawan Adventure Day 1

Scheduled to leave at 6AM on a friday morning but turned out to be 7:30 due to some deliverable and due to me on PTO on Friday and Monday. Needed to complete everything prior to leaving.

All's well when we finally settled and off to the airport.

At the airport, upon checking in, went for a quick breakfast to be ready for the day and coming from the shift the night before, needed to energize and recharge for the coming long day.

Leaving Manila is also a hard day since Spurs will also be playing against Heat for the NBA Finals Game 4. A must-watch game since Spurs is going for their third win and on to a comfortable lead. Good thing that at the airport, there are already televisions mounted on waiting lounges so we were able to watch the first and second quarters. It was a close fight for the first 2 quarters, and having that confidence that Spurs will win the game since they are also playing at Spurs Homecourt giving the SA an advantage over Miami.

But after landing at the Puerto Princesa Airport, Che-Anne immediately checked her phone and learned the sad news that Spurs lost the game. Well, it's still fine, Miami only leveled the game to 2 wins a piece. Life has to go on, come Monday, the Spurs will comeback and will post their third win and gaining the advantage.

Landing at the airport brought back some memories the first time I set my foot at this very same airport, only different companions. I was with Chery and Sheila, some of my best travel buddies who continues to tolerate my behavior, my "kaartehan" and everything. LOL!
Finally landed

Headed straight to Citadel where we will be staying for the next few days! Upon arrival at the house, kulitan with Ate Citadel; checked-in and had to make a decision whether to go straight to a City tour or take the day to rest. Settled with just stay at the resort and rest. Before dinner, since Robinson's Mall is just 2-blocks away (according to Ate Citadel), decided to go and spend some time at the mall and have dinner.


After dinner, went to the Supermarket to buy some goodies and headed home to rest for the day.

Tomorrow is another day...Our Underground RIVER Adventure.

Up next...

Palawan Explorers: Day 2 - Underground River

Coming from working the night before, needed to wake up early for our Underground River Tour. At 7:30, our van arrived our tour was set. Our tour guide introduced himself but can't remember his name! As our tour guide, he talks a lot. Talking about the history of Palawan, the natives of Palawan which there are four (i can't remember either); the discoverers of Palawan and every Barangay we passed. He's talking in English just because we have a foreigner companion in the van {another success story}. What's so great about the tour guides in Palawan is that, they are not very fluent in the English language but they make sure they convey the information in English. Though comparing "manong" from our tour guide the first time I was there, he is much better. One major problem, though, is the usage of correct terms. "Approaching ahead" may be acceptable, but "approaching to your right" sounds just not right! But overall, he is good and even bette…

My first! Puerto Galera Escapade: An unplanned getaway with the best travel buddies!

It actually started with the meeting of the bitches minds to get even with the most disliked person in the world. And of course to enjoy the summer. More fun, fun, fun! It's actually More Fun in the Philippines!

There were actually different choices initially:

1. Baguio City - to enjoy cooler environment and get-away from the super noisy Metro Manila
2. Pangasinan - Hundred Island - Been there but not them.
3. Puerto Galera - Never been there, to chill by the beach.
4. Batangas - bitches by the beach
5. Enchanted Kingdom - enjoy life and be like child again

But of course, as a certified bitch, we've decided a day or two before the getaway to just go to a beach! Puerto Galera it is! And coincidentally, Ms Ate Bhing asked when are we going to the beach, then we just invited her to come with us. And there you go, the four of to PG after friday's shift!
