We ate dinner at the hotel, while the Azkals went out heading to their bus, luckily, one of the staff called my aunt if she can teach the way to Mr. Puentevella's house, cos' they will have their dinner there that night. So my aunt went with him and Wendie followed. i really thought that they will jusst take a picture inside the bus, it was unexpected!we actually rode inside the bus with the Azkals!Wendie is seated with Misagh and me with Paolo! at first, it was so silent. (i told Pao, "that awkward moment when i'm beside with Paolo Pascual", then he said "ok lng yan.. :))" ) so i was really brainstorming on what to chat about since it was kinda awkward. ahaha 

my very nice seatmate-at-the-bus! Paolo! (still can't believe what happened that night!)

with Deo, Gerado, Mr.OH-YEAH (Kuya Edward), and BoyBoy

it is not just following them in their hotels, not just taking pictures with them, not just having their twitter accounts, but being an Azkal fan, it is a pleasure to meet each of them in person, have  little chit-chat with them, laugh with them.. just little things that would complete our day. for me, i just grab the opportunity that they are here in Bacolod again.
Some say that being a fan is like "hey!you are a stalker!". 
NO were  not.

Dumaguete Trip! :)) ---Part 2

Antulang, Siaton Neg.Oriental (April 5,2011)

Things i'll never forget:

- 9km travel halin sa bangga before makaabot sa Antulang
- habal-habal motor
- passed by Bonbonon Bay (yachts of foreigners staying at Bonbonon Bay)
- had lunch at Antulang
- si Manong nga nami eyes
- sun + big waves + cool breeze

on our way to Antulang---9km travel!

Antulang welcomes us!

the breathe-taking view from the top

 after almost 3 hours of staying at Antulang, we decided to go home.
on our way back, we stopped over the Bonbonon Bay.
Unfortunately, we cannot see the whole bay, just a glimpse of a hidden paradise!

Finally, we rode a bus back to Negros Occidental.
so long Dumaguete. So long Antulang!
i'm surely gonna miss those long-hour-bus trips and the great scenery of Dumaguete!
'til we meet again Dumaguete!

Dumaguete Trip! :))

It's officially SUMMER! 

...and as an escapade for me, mom and my brother, we decided to go to Dumaguete! Saturday night, we packed our things up. We slept a little and woke up at around 2:00 am and we went to the terminal and waited for the 3:00am trip to Dumaguete. 

After almost 7 hours of land travel to Dumaguete, we arrived at about 10:30am. We went to Mcdonald's and had breakfast. While we were eating, I noticed that the costumers are almost foreigners. They come in groups and of course their lovely wives from the local city. Now I knew why there are so many half Filipinos in Dumaguete! So anyways, before starting our sightseeing in Dumaguete, we first find a pension house that's affordable and yes, it was OK Pension House. One night only cost us about P280. So we left our baggages and off for a stroll. 

First stop was The Dumaguete Belfry located in front of their Plaza

We prayed for our personal intentions and lit a candle. 
so after that, under the scorchin' hot sun, we decided to cool down and went to Robinson's Place.
Before we had this trip, Fried Ice Cream was really my goal. and luckily we saw Miguelito's Fried Ice Cream.
we strolled. bought a book from Booksale. and waited for time. 

Actually, one of the reason why we had this trip to Dumaguete is because mom would like to recall her memories when she was still a kid. when she was about 4 years old, she was lost in the streets of Dumaguete city. Lola and Lolo searched for her all day long and found her along the shores of Rizal Bay. She recalled the streets from Silliman University to Rizal Bay. When we reached Silliman University, my mom recalled all her memories, the happy times she had when she's still a kid, she remembered playing and running around the campus of Silliman and that brought her into tears. 

..part 1 ends here!
