1st in 2018: Boracay

Standard

Yes, I know, I know… I was just in Boracay last December. But this guy asked me to come and he wants to see me daw. And I want to see him too.

So I booked last January. I stayed at Henann Crystal Sands again, natandaan ako nung mga nasa front desk hahaha, yun lang, I stayed there for a night lang coz wala na available. But I booked the Premier with Pool access room that I NEVER got the chance to use, AGAIN!!!!! And on my second night, stayed at The District na katabi lang ng Henann Crystal.

But five days before ng flight ko, Em texted me and nandito sya sa Manila. Ang arti arti pa, sinurpresa ako. Kesyo may ipapa-meet daw sa MOA, sabi ko di ako nagpupunta don, eh di umamin, mag-lunch daw kame, kase aalis na rin sya agad.

Anyways, February 2 ng lunch time ang flight ko to Caticlan. Akala ko makakapag work pa ako, eh need nga pala maaga sa airport. Kaya ayun. Hindi sya nagpaparamdam non, until 12ish, kamustahin ako. Di ko nga sinagot. Nagparamdam na lang ako nung on the way nako sa resort. Nag text ng “update” eh, hahaha

Past 3 na rin ako nakarating, gutom na gutom nako. After checking in, dumating na rin si Em. Sumama muna sya sa room to check, then I gave him the Tsonggo shirt and cap. Then we went out para kumain.

After eating went back sa resort kase iche-check namin yun sky pool. And he’s so busy with work, puro phone. After few mins, sabi nya pwede pa kame mag-happy hour coz na-move ng one hour yun private event nila sa PubCrawl.

So we went to Manana, had frozen mango margarita. Sarap, and I love the margarita glass. Nakakatuwa pa yun server, forgot to ask his name lang. He’s nice and funny. He had beer, and he ordered nachos. I didnt bring my phone coz sabi nya iwan ko na lang, need to charge it kase. So I used his phone to take sunset photos. See how many the tao are?

We stayed there til 7, he made kwento about previous events. Yung mga nanghahalik sa kanila, yung about nung new year, etc. And then it’s time to go. He went to their office na, and I went back to the room. He said na mag-attend lang ako ng Crawl and that he’ll see me later.

Nag-ready ako and I messaged him again kung ok lang ba talaga, he said go lang. Sandali lang daw private event nila and magkita na lang kame don.

So I went to Exit Bar to register around 8 I think. I saw him there pa. Pero ilang, di man lang ako nilapitan, I went to him pa asked for scissors, pero yun nga, something is different sa kanya eh. Kaya sabi ko papasok na lang ako sa loob to get my shot.

He texted me, enjoy daw at see you later. Tell you the truth, I got bored. Wala ako nakilala (well except for Akash’s girlfriend Jen, but that was later on pa). Wala kumakausap, but Kelly, my captain saw me sa second bar na and checked on me, even Jessa. But that was it. Unlike nung first time ko, well I dont know if because Em’s trying to flirt kaya super asikaso sya saken. Pero sabi nga sa reviews, di ka naman papabayaan, pero yun nga, gusto ko na pumuslit sa totoo lang. OP much ako.

I saw Stefan sa second bar na, thank goodness andon sya, nagkaron ako ng kausap. I think may 2 guys kumausap saken. But they’re with friends, they left me din. Hahaha super iba sya nung first time ko, yon may nakikipag usap talaga. This time, kahit ka-group ko, hindi ako kinakausap. Then I met Jen after sa second bar, nung nag-games na. Nataon mag-isa rin sya, well Akash was there but he’s busy. So nataon na nagkatabi kame, nag-usap na kame. Then Akash told her to accompany me kase mag-isa lang ako. That’s sweet diba. Kaya mas kausap ko silang dalawa and si Stefan.

 

Sa Galaxy na kame, ayun sayaw sayaw. Hahaha pero we went outside to smoke, talked to this guy from I forgot where, he’s drunk. Then I saw Em’s text, asan daw ako. Sabi ko nasa Galaxy, outside smoking. He’s back na raw sa headquarter, he’s looking for me daw at di ako makita, sabi ko balik sya. When he got back, kausap ko pa rin yung guy, but andon sila Stefan, Jen and Kash and some other. Hindi nya ako nilapitan, but sumingit sya sa circle namin.

When its time to go, sa fifth and final bar, Kash and Jen left na. Sumabay ako sa tricyle with Stefan and Em. Kahit katabi ko sya, halos di nya ako kinakausap. Either sila ang magkausap ni Stefan, or kame ni Stefan. Pagdating ng Club Paraw, pinauna pa ako pumasok naiwan sila sa labas, parang tanga. Pagpasok nya, he asked ano gusto ko inumin, eh ako nagbayad? Hahaha nag-stay kame sa may shore, kumuha table. We just sat there, kwentuhan slight. Di ko na nakikita yun “EM” before. Parang naiilang sya pero isinsantabi ko yun pakiramdam ko. I was trying to be sweet with him. Sabi ko pa pasok kame sa loob, sayaw kame. But paglabas ko from restroom, di ko sya agad nakita, nasa labas na sya ulet. Kaya I went out na lang ulet. Hanggang nag-aya na lang kame bumalik ng hotel.

While walking there was a time he held my hand. Didnt take long. Sa room, he looked tired so I took a shower and went to bed. He said din pala na walang food si Champ kaya need nya umuwi maaga para gawan ng food.

I woke up at 6am, he’s gone. Hahaha so I ate breakfast alone. Then look naman, walang tao sa pool, but the mahiyain me again, didnt swim. Ang shonga shonga ko, sayang binayaran ko sa room. Inisip ko na lang kase I need to get ready coz mag-check out pa ako. Hindi sya gaano nagpaparamdam because busy sya. He said sorry for not waking me up para magpaalam coz nagpaalam na raw sya the night before. Sabi ko mas gusto ko pa rin na nagpaalam sya hindi yung magugulat ako na wala na pala ako kasama. In the afternoon, sinabi ko ulet sa kanya yon. Sabi nya puyat at pagod daw kase ako, and pinipilit nya na dahil nga ayaw nya mang gising, and if sya daw yon, ayaw nya ng gigisingin sya pag pagod sya.

Anyway, after checking out, nag-coffee muna ako at Starbucks, then lumipat nako sa The District, katabi lang naman ng Henann Crystal. But ah, hehe no one helped me with my luggage. Hahaha dumating sya while checking in. Lady from front desk told me na may free upgrade ako coz may ginagawa daw. Kaya from Premier, to Premier Suite weee!!!

 

Room’s nice. Two story sya, may loft and pool view. Oh, view ko rin ang Henann. Haha we stayed sa room muna while he was resting. Medyo nagtatalo nga kame about him leaving me in the morning and baket daw ba ako nagagalit. So imbes awayin, kinamusta ko na lang sya. He said may problema sa work kaya maya’t maya rin nagri-ring phone nya. I gave him konting massage sa ulo kase he looked tired, and he fell asleep. hahaha di ko maialis kamay ko coz naipit ng ulo nya. Anyway, nung super ngawit nako, inalis ko rin, and nagising na sya. I said sorry, and he asked me where I want to eat. So lumabas na kame. We had inasal sa D’Mall. Bought wine, coz sabi nya mag wine night daw kame. We went back to the room, nag-gym sya, showered then he left for PubCrawl again. And ako, I watched tv and I went out. Nag-BomBoms ako mag-isa haha sakto pa paglabas ko, sakto dumaan ang PubCrawlers, papunta na sila ng Epic. I saw him pero nagtago ako. hahah by hiding I meant lumayo ako ng paglalakad, sumabay ako sa ibang tao para di ako mapansin. But then, I saw Stefan. Nasa dulo na kase sya, haha sakto I was waiting for a table at BomBoms.

Baileys Shake

He texted me and kinamusta ako, I told him nga na nasa Bomboms ako, ako lang daw ba mag-isa, sabi ko may nakilala ako. Sabi nya “Good” hahaha natuwa??? Joke lang kako, mag-isa ako. Later on, inantok nako kaya I went back sa room na lang.

Waited for him til 2 ata. Ang tagal nya. Kesyo nagkagulo daw dahil sa isang captain pa. Blah blah

He said na open na namin yun wine, di masarap hahahaha and it didnt take long til he fell asleep. Tried waking him up para lumipat sa bed, di magising eh di iniwan ko. Sayang yung gabi ko. Sayang yung ayos ko. Nagpaganda pako, tutulugan pala ako.

I went sa bed, sa sofa sya. Nung morning, pag gising ko to pee, gising na ata sya, he asked san ako pupunta, sabi ko mag-wiwi. Then umakyat ulet ako, sumunod sya. Mag-breakfast na raw kame kase aalis pa sya. 😦

We ate breakfast, hmm di masarap ang breakfast ng District. Buti na lang kasama sa bayad yon, if not at nag-avail lang ako, sayang pera ko. After eating, he stayed pa for few mins, we talked. He said that he’s going here sa manila this month for three days, magkita daw kame. I asked about his tattoo. Then sabi nya he has to go na kase mag-gym pa sila ni Stefan. Medyo nainis ako, coz wala nako 3 hours eh. I’m going home, cant he just go to the gym in the afternoon? Di man lang ako hintayin makaalis? Nakakasama ng loob diba? Kaya when he left he kissed me sa forehead, he said “Update ah?!” I didnt answer, sabi nya ulet “Cher!”, still dedma ako, and I heard the door na lang. He really left. Di na kame nag-text ulet til nakauwi ako.

Anyway, I like the new wing ng Godofredo Airport. PAL and Skyjet andon, may CebPac ata, pero ewan ko anong flight kase isang beses pa lang ako napunta dito. May Starbucks sila, charging station and maluwag ah.

 

Ang tagal bago pa kame nakaalis, but we’re on the plane na. Anyway, landed in Manila around 4.

I cant say I enjoyed my trip, coz I really didnt. It was okay. Nawalan ng kwenta yun pinunta ko. I didnt go there coz nag-plan lang ako mag-bakasyon, but he asked me to go. Then papakitaan lang pala nya ako ng pagka-ilang and less time. I find it weird coz he was so excited nung inaaya pa lang nya ako pumunta til the day ng pagpunta ko. And pagdating ko, everything changed. Labo.

40th Birthday Trip

Standard

Since I am turning 40, I planned on going out of town or out of the country. But since my sister told us she’s coming home for the holiday, nag-out of town na lang ako and I went 13 days before my birthday.

I booked my flight a month before, and booked my hotel days before haha ayaw kase ako payagan ni BigBear. But I went still. I just didnt tell him na umalis ako. Sakto, di kame ok. Not naman magka-away, but he’s too busy para makausap ako.

So, I booked at Henann Crystal Sands, excited ako kase they just opened on September. Wala na available na may pool access so nag Premier room lang ako. Nag-avail din ako ng transfer para wala nako problema.

My flight was at 6ish am on December 11 via Cebu Pacific. Kinabahan pa ako sa airport, kase super daming tao. Buti na lang naka web check in ako, and narinig ko yun announcement para sa baggage check in para sa flight ko. Haha akala ko hindi ako aabot.

ARRIVAL.
Arrived Caticlan 7am, looked for my sundo. Hihi katapat lang pala ng gate yun lounge ng Henann.

IMG_2277
Waited for others and the van. Then sa lounge ulet ng port.

IMG_2279
Transferred to the boat na and iba ibang vans na kame pagdating ng Boracay. Different Henann Resorts kame, but yun isang family kasama ko sa Crystal Sands.

HENANN CRYSTAL SANDS.
I checked in na but room’s not available yet since ang aga pa. And then I realized, I only have 400 bucks on my wallet. Hahaha putcha. Ang arte arte ko, nag-Caticlan ako, availed transfer, booked to Henann, then nakarating ako ng Boracay ng 400 ang pera ko. Poor! hahaha bad vibes pa, offline ang mga BPI ATM’s. Waaaah
IMG_2281
I went to Starbucks for breakfast na lang buti pwede EPS. Stayed there til receptionist called me to tell me na available na room ko, Yey!
IMG_2282
Room’s much nicer than Henann Prime. Mas maliwanag and much bigger. I had Premier room din sa Prime eh. But the bathroom, looks almost the same.

So I just stayed in my room for couple of hours, kailangan ko i-enjoy kwarto ko. But lumabas din ako to buy water. And had late lunch din. Napabili pa ako ng Havaianas coz ang saket sa paa nung Kate Spade flip flops na binigay ni mommy hahaha


Had lunch at Sapphire Restaurant in Henann. Tinamad nako maghanap sa iba. Hahaha na-doble pa yun food ko, di ako naintindihan nung waitress, but ok lang. I saved it for later na lang. Alam ko naman gugutumin pako.

PUBCRAWL.
Went back to my room, maulan. I dont know what to do, knowing myself, di ako makalabas coz tinatamad ako at alam na, wala kase ako kasama hahaha then a friend of mine commented on my IG post, mag-Pubcrawl daw ako. Pub what? Hahaha so sila pala yung mga nakikita namin minsan na group na mga naka-yellow shirt. I checked the reviews, and hmm ok sya for solo travelers. Nag-message ako sa kanila, nag inquire then bam, I’m joining. Ms. Jed told me to go na lang sa Exit Bar. Sir ako ng sir, babae pala sya. Hahaha I almost didnt go kase late na and nahihiya nga ako. Pero ayun Jed called me when I asked san yon kase naligaw nako. Pumunta na nga lang ako, I looked for her, then I registered. She gave me a shirt, shot glass and a baller.

Then this guy, Em introduced himself and made chika. Pinagsama sama nila kame nung iba, which became my friends na rin. Isa pa, mas chinika ko sila when I heard na taga Pangasinan si Jane. She looked like Devie (yun cousin nila Valerie) hihi

Kachikahan namin these 2 captains, Em and Stefan. They asked if first time ko ba, I said in Boracay no, mag-PubCrawl yes. Who I’m with daw, kelan pa ako and til when, how old am I. Sabi ko I just arrived nung morning, til wednesday, I’m alone and turning 40. Eh sabay sabay sila nagulat, sabi ko yup turning 40 ako in few days. Eh baket daw ako nasa Boracay alone, soul searching daw ba, or broken hearted. HAHAHA sabi ko, I’m celebrating my birthday soon, and since I’m turning 40 I decided sa Boracay gawin.


Took our first shot at Exit Bar, chikahan with others. Couple of mins later, we transferred to the second bar, I think Plagia is the name. Nag-karaoke kame. Hahaha. This Em kept on making pilit kumanta ako. Hinila nya ako in front and gave me the mic. Waaah

Third bar was Epic, and damn it I spilled mudslide on my Kate Spade. Hindi pa rin ako kinakalimutan i-check ni Em, but my captain is Stefan, take note. Hahaha I guess he’s just being nice, coz sabi sa reviews di daw talaga pababayaan ng mga captains ang mga participants.

Moved to our fourth, it’s a clubbbbb!!! There’s a club in Boracay! Woohoo! It’s called Galaxy Club, kinda nice, it’s big. Kaso, they play house of EDM or I dont know hahaha again, si Captain Em, hinila ako in front. I was dancing with Jane and the gang but hinila nya ako mag-isa to dance sa harap. Waaaah later on nung medyo busy sya, I went to the ladies. And I kinda heard my name being called by the dj. Deadma ako coz I’m really not sure, at baket naman ako tatawagin, right? But when I stepped out ng ladies, there’s Em, saying “Where have you been? We’ve been looking for you” sabay hila sa arm ko at dinala ako sa dance floor. Then, dj asked again “Where is Cher?”, tinuro ako ni Em and I raised my hand. Okay, they sang Happy Birthday. Hahahaha nakakahiya.

Last bar was Club Paraw, here medyo gulo gulo na. Hahaha kanya kanya na. Once again, hinila ako ni Em, may happy birthday na naman sila and a slice of cake. Sweet!!! Tho, 2 na kame kinantahan nila and nag-share sa pag blow ng candle and sa cake. I just had a bite, I left after, nahihiya ako eh.

Ganon na lang, may sulatan sa mga shirts namin. Then Em sat beside me, asked ano gagawin ko kinabukasan. They’re having their christmas party daw. Di mo malaman kung sinasabi lang or nag-aaya eh. Hahaha

Jane, Allen and Martin left na, nagpaiwan na ako. Feeling ko kase gusto na makipaglandian nitong Em na to eh. But I was wrong. LOL

Sabay sabay lang kame umalis ng Paraw, then hiwalay na kame sa may office nila and I walked to my hotel na, Stefan asked me pa if gusto ko pa ba samahan nya ako, sabi ko no na, malapit naman na.

That evening, aba tumawag ang BigBear, but we didnt talk long naman. 😦

SECOND DAY.
Woke up kinda early, I checked my phone pero Constancio didnt call na ulet, kainis. Sabi tatawag ulet eh. Nag phone lang muna ako, then I got up and went downstairs to have breakfast. Hmmm mas ok food nila kesa sa Prime.

IMG_2359

Good Morning!

Love the french toast.

I went out for a walk. I want to swim, but weather is not cooperating.

 


So again, just stayed in my room, decided to have a hot bath. Puro istorbo naman, coz the front desk called to confirm my transfer the next day. Then Allen keep texting me and nag-aaya mag-dinner. Kaya ayun, nag-ready ako to meet them, kaso di naman pala kakain si Jane, so its just me, Allen and Martin. Martin just had his tattoo. Tapos we had dinner at Mang Inasal, kalain mo sa Boracay pa ako nakapag Mang Inasal. Hahaha plan ko sana to have steak for dinner coz its my last night and birthday ko nga diba, but sumama na lang din ako sa kanila. Super tired daw sila from the days activities. Kaya di na nila kaya lumabas. Went back to my room na lang, then Jane messaged me naman, haha nagpapasama magpa-henna. Tapos sumunod na rin si Allen, nag-one round lang kame at Bombom’s. and hiwa-hiwalay na.

Stayed in my room, watched tv. Muni muni.

IMG_2561

And wala na paramdam na naman ang Constancio. Kainis no?!

LAST DAY.
Woke up in time for breakfast. Pinilit ko na rin bumangon coz check out time is 12nn. My flight is at 7:50pm, my transfer is 4ish pm. Waah san ako pupunta? Hahaha

Went outside the resort, gusto ko sana maglakad but, kulang na oras haha.

img_2581.jpg

While waiting mag-check out, Em commented on my post in IG na kung aalis na ba ako, I said yes but evening pa flight ko. He told me he’ll be at Tom N Toms at 2:30, confused me, I asked if mag-meet kame, he said yes. Ayun, when I checked out, naulan. And almost 2:30 na, sinugod ko na ang I went to Tom N Toms, hehe excited naman daw ako to meet him.

IMG_2605

Cafe Mocha

Nagkwentuhan lang kame, about his ex-fiance, about BigBear. About his nationality haha about his work, about my work. Etc.

Almost 5 na but the ulan still lakas. But I said bye na rin coz kailangan ko na umalis, kahiya sa resort. Sabi nya cancelled na raw flight ko, kase may bagyo, tulungan na lang daw nya ako humanap murang tutuluyan. Haha ang kulit. I left pa rin, hatid daw nya ako, but sabi ko ok na ako tutal working din sya eh.

Went back sa resort, aba kala mo wala akong sked ng transfer hahaha di ako hinahanap ah. But ayun, nagsabi nako then the van came na. And we left. I just messaged Em na I left na.

In fairness, on time naman flight ko and got home safe. I enjoyed my vacation. First time talaga to na mag-isa ako, coz yun first time ko nag Bora mag-isa in 2007, andon si Yen and nagkita rin kame. Then first time ko yung mag-attend ng ganong party ng mag-isa. Walang kakilala then umuwi akong may mga bagong kaibigan.
