This recent trip to CDO last month was a two day weekend rendezvous spent for celebrating birthdays – Michelle’s and my mom’s. Michelle’s was actually the major highlight but don’t tell my mom that.
For weeks, we have been planning on this Saturday getaway in White Island, Camiguin and an overnight stay at Paras Beach resort. With our bikinis and suntan lotions in tow and shutter shades, everything was all good – except we didn’t anticipate the heavy rain that poured all over Southern Mindanao! The road to Balingoan was already blurry on the windshield and by the time we got there, no ferries were brave enough to cross the island.
Michelle took it in stride and came up with a PLAN B to Duka Bay instead. Thanks to Iggy, the party Gods favored the municipality of Medina rather than Mambajao, Camiguin and gave us – surprisingly, perfect weather.
It was a “Goes to show plans are always jinxed” moment until Michelle balked because we should have applied the Law of Attraction (note: The Secret) while we were on the road to Balingoan. Call all forces of nature to work with us. Positive energy should emanate from our chests so that the universe will conspire to make it all happen. The Secret or not, everything went well.
Say happy bday to Michelle. I missed everybody.
…and happy bday to mom.
Randy and Erika, my friends from Cebu also came! Its so surreal to actually have them in Cagayan.
FUN. Lovelies. I went out with my sister on Saturday night and she turned out to be a heavy drinker than moi.
Me, on ice tea. She, on SML. “Ate’s such a loser.” I had to live with that for days. Hahah.
My birthday is also coming up soon. I do not know yet if I wanted to see that 26 candle on any of my cake. Bah.
