Weekend Shaft

It’s been a while since I last posted here, I have been piled up with work lately to the point that I even forgotten some noteworthy stuff to attend to. Oh well!!
My weekend was not the run of the mill, we headed to Camotes Island together with Mimoi's workmates. I seldom go to that kind of jaunt since I for once had gone to the said place and second, I am not familiar with his colleagues. So, since he has been beseeching me to go with him so I opt to and travel along.

Saturday came and the adventure begins. They were informed that the ship will leave at 8:30AM from Danao port and more or less we will disembark to the said Island in 2 hours, Mackie and I left the house at 6:00AM because we still have to travel from Lapu-Lapu City to Danao. At around 7:30AM we arrived to the said place where everyone convene, majority of them are already there so some just seated in the grass, taking pictures and others are chit-chatting.

Almost 8:00Am when they announced that we can’t take a trip for 8:30 because of ample amount of passengers and the shipping lines broadcasted that they are already fully-booked and just take the 10AM trip, Dang!!! As a result they have decided to just take a motorized banca, we took a tricycad ride from the port to some sort of seaport and unfortunately, it was not the banca that we expected, its the worse, no sheathe at least to cover us from the extreme heat, it’s really a small banca, I dunno if it can go beyond the waves going there good thing they have decided not to take it or else (never mind! Tee hee). So we got back near the port, we stayed at the park just beside the church until they say that we can’t make it for the 10:00Am trip since it’s again fully-booked, I was like WTF!!! This is not happening…. We left no choice so we just settled there and had our lunch under the trees and facing the sea. Until we ended the 12:00 noon trip and we were all saying, at last!

3:30Am when we arrived at the place where they rented (Masamayor’s Resort) we unpacked our things and had a little conversation with my room mates (Tatay Jonathan, Jhong, Aj, Mark, Alex, Mackie and Me— I’m one of the boys, you know! Hahahaha). Everyone unloaded their stuff and we are all ready for one-heck-of-a-summer-crack. We all gathered at the resort where Mackie’s bosses stayed, we do not care if the owner keeps on purring about the arrangement that was made by the owner of Masamayor’s Resort of us staying their and cooking our meal, all we know is we are going to have fun! Helluvaaaa fun!! Okay, so some hopped into the beach and enjoyed the blue-waters and white sands of the island. While I was just chilling around and had a little talk with Nina, I was so surprised that we both clicked and get along very well and I enjoyed her company too (Hi, Nin, I know you are reading this). When the night starts to evolve they are busy preparing for dinner and we had plenty of food to gobble (burp!!). Dinner ended and we stayed at the shore of the resort where we reside, unending talks, booze, unruffled music and laughs. Aaaaah.. This is life!! At around 1Am we decided to take a rest as another day awaits us in the morning.

On our 2nd day, beach time, yaaaay! It is where all of us went swimming, some did Frisbee, beach soccer, skim boarding and enjoying the vast shores of Camotes. It’s my second time to the said island but I was never so blissful and with high spirit I just had my moment enjoying the beach, detaching myself from the hassle-bustle life of the city, flaking my mind from stress and doing away with loads of work. This is the kind of break I have been longing and to that note, I would definitely go back.

I would really recommend Camotes Island, but just a hint, never go there when its summer, because you will get pissed with high volume of passengers at the port and you don’t want to misuse your time staying at the port area for 8hours right, it’s really a waste of time.

Photos will be uploaded soon.. =))

Much love,
