LaUnionAdventures001

Standard

March 14-16

It’s my second visit in La Union. Pero ngayon lang ako nakapasyal talaga in La Union. The first one kase, stayed lang in San Juan, surfing lang talaga ang pakay. Anyway, thanks to my Igers family and Herb, natuloy ang trip na to.

We left 9ish in the evening in Manila. And 4ish am, we’re at San Fernando, La Union na. We stayed at McDo and waited for Herb muna and nag-breakfast.

First stop: St. William Parish Church, photowalk lang saglit. On our way to PUGO Adveture, nadaanan ang Eagle Park, syempre di pwede walang picture.

At Pugo Adventure, I only tried Zipline 1, or Superman position. Its 400 meters long and 250 feet high. Kinda takot ako at first. Pero nung andon na ako, nawala ang takot ko. I enjoyed it big time. Some of them naman tried the Zipline 3, and wall climbing. Uber init lang. And not expensinve ang bottled water ha (syempre important to saken).

Didnt stay long at Thunderbird. We went na rin agad at Urbiz Garden para mag-ready for surfing. No pictures of my friends surfing, syempre camphone lang, napakahirap. Puro blurred. Hahaha

Nag-shower na agad pagkabalik sa house. Kwentuhan, til nag-decide na to eat dinner. Ate the leftover from lunch, and bought pizza na lang don sa isang resto sa may resort katabi ng Urbiz Garden. La na naganap na inuman. Kase, napahaba ang kwentuhan about Kieth’s big bad news.

Alagwa (Breakaway)

Standard

Received an invitation letter from Igersmanila last week. An MTVEXIT special screening of Alagwa. Since si Jeericho Rosales (my ultimate pinoy celebrity crush) and Bugoy Carino (super nacu-cute-an ako sa kanya). Sent a reply agad confirming my attendance. Ayun!

Alagwa
Synopsis: Robert (Jericho Rosales) is a single parent living with his only son Brian (Bugoy Cariño). Everyday he tends to prepare his son to school and goes to work as a salesman. One day, Robert decided to treat his Brian in a mall. He left his son momentarily in the comfort room to bet in a lotto outlet outside but when he comes back his son was already missing and its too late when he found out that his son was abducted by a syndicate. With the life of his son in jeopardy, Robert must take all the risk in the dark streets of Manila to find his son and bring him back alive. (Credit: Lakwatsera Lovers)

Loved the movie. I was teary eyed sa ending nya. Nakakasaket ng puso. Robert is not the passionate kind of guy, pero he loves his son too much. Kaya alam mo yon, nakakadurog ng puso. Kaya kahit last October 2013 pa pala sya pinalabas sa moviehouse, kebs lang. And palabas din sya ulet last night in Cinema1. Pinanood ko pa rin!

Thank you Igersmanila and MTVEXIT for our free tickets. Di ako nagsisi na sumama ako panoorin sya.

Kudos to Jericho Rosales, Bugoy Carino and sa buong cast! Thumbs up!!!
