stop over in Maasin, Leyte



around 2:59 am, can't sleep on my jet like seat in this ship.
we are now in the port of Maasin Leyte,
where we had a stop over for an hour.
so i went out and step foot on the place for the first time,
i just had bought a pack of smoke and went back.
moments after will be heading to our main destination: Surigao..




that certain teeny weeny light on my left is actually a land mark in Maasin,
something like an "on top of the mountain shrine or altar".

my hp cam isn't powerful enough to capture the details.
to see how it really looks like by day and a much closer view
click on this link: maasin leyte harbor




alright,
gotta sail on..
good night'

Siargao Jaunt

no one could believe it cause even myself can't believe it that i made it here in Siargao before New Year's Eve. it was a hell of a day last night and lemme start where all it began.


*i was desperate for a ticket yesterday (December 30, 2009 however the sched for Cebu-Surigao is fully booked

*so instead i bought a ticket for tomorrow, 7pm

*but the idea struck me that i'm gonna spend my new year's eve at the middle of the sea w/c is way too sad and frightening (thinking i will be traveling alone this time cause russ and mecca can't make it due to their prior scheduled family affairs) and there's no stepping back or least will let my ticket float into the current til it reached its intended destination

*so here's my ticket dated 12/31/2009 departure time is 7:00 pm

* but guess what, i took he trip the very same day, on 12/30/2009 and thinking i don't have enough time left i went to pier uno without anything but im wearing and bringing now. (w/c is just my cellphone and my netbook)

*i passed through all the inspectors and ship crew without knowing the validity of my ticket (but deep inside my mind i;m ready for my rebut if they askm me about my ticket that im a chance passenger and all those bullshit will just flow from inside my pathological liar mouth.)

*thanks for my new found friend, he's name is joseph (he's tall, handsome and a gentleman but mind u, he's freakin straight) we got a real nice conversation and upon knowing my circumstance he had his ticket over lap mine for the inspection.

* and thanks God, it went through just fine and here i am heading towards my ultimate place to see the first sunrise of 2010, Siargao!

***************

How I get to Siargao, through Ship from Cebu

*from pier uno, rode cokaliong via Maasin, then from Maasin to Surigao.
*from Surigao, there will be a ferry boat heading to dapa, surigao
*from port of Dapa, will ride a jeep to G.L (General Luna) Php 50
Then a motorcycle ride to Cloud 9 another php50

*********

i got a room for 550/night
at OCEAN101

*its already beach front (i had room number 12, and i will tell u, its really amazing)

*wifi ready (there's a daily rate though, but u can contact me for the pw so u could have it discreetly free, and if its still the same)

*the food is really mahal/expensive/caro (specially if ur a working middle class, its dollar rate) better be with someone since the serving is usually good for two

*if u want some night life experience, there's a bar nearby called: BAR101

*ocean101 is just a walk away from the ultimate surfing haven: cloud 9

*they got the most cheerful and friendliest crew, most of them became my friends and i'm starting to miss all of them!

sawadee experiencia!


'twas really funny 'cause we just came from a drinking and karaoke session.. then we end up here, at past midnyt! each of us have an hour body massage together, in one of their VIP rooms (mecca's treat!). it started with our feet soaked and washed in a wooden basin filled with fresh flowers while me and russ do our elvin chants. Once our therapist do their thing, they started to backstab one of their colleagues apparently behind our back. i mean, WTF! we are suppose to attain peace of mind but they keep on criticizing one of their co-worker, so it end up the three of us, oh no the six of us, (together with our masseuse this time) also talk to each other. once our massage was done, mecca, russ and i did silly poses where our bodies are covered only with towels and each of us have fake roses. it was really fun and somehow we felt like duh,

OK..

=)

again, thanks Mecs for the saintly trance..

i got all these, but i need friggin COLD CASH!

for the sole reason that you can't slap these to a bartender, screaming:

ONE SET of RH please!

waking up in catmon











reminiscing,
photos taken in October 2007

sitting by















just came to visit my grandma in Lahug for the holidays,
can't help but to spend some time here. This place is where i usually sit every time me and my brothers spend the summer vacation in our Grandma's place.

Countless novels, music, meandering thoughts had passed over on this bleacher. I can spend hours just absentmindedly looking the golf course across.. I miss this place as much as it miss me too. =)

here comes the CV fellas..

Goodbye Sadness

La la la- la
La la la la- la la la
La la la la- la la la
La la la la- la la la

Tristeza
The big sadness the heart feels
Let it leave mine forever
Let my lips sing again
From this day on my days are days of sun and roses
My life's a carnival of song
From this day on my dear the door to sorrow closes
This day when you came along

-Astrud Gilberto

Sto. Rosario Church

last day of simbang gabi..
passed these churchgoers from the jeepney i'm riding..

a bag of Nips!

You wanna see what happens in a bag of Nips?
What goes on before they touch my lips?

good morning everyone..
1 day more to go
and let's embrace
the ultimate day of the yuletide season.

=)
