South Bound

Standard

Spent the weekend in South. Went to Quezon Province with my travel buddies.

Heard of this island called Borawan in Quezon. Sabi nila, pinaghalong Boracay and Palawan, because of the rock formation and fine white sand. I guess they havent been to any of this place. Yes, ok din ang beach nila. May rock formation, pero not so much na kahawig ng mga nasa Palawan. No, not really white sand like the sand in Boracay. Kinda creamy ang color, and masaket sa paa ang mga durog na shells sa shore. They have jelly fish on the three beaches na pinuntahan namin. Hindi naman marami, pero one of my friend got sting by a jelly fish sa Puting Buhangin. Hindi na namin pinasok yun kweba, tinamad na tuloy. And natakot na ring lumusong sa water.

Anyway, Ate Irma met with us pagbaba namin ng bus.  Bumaba kame in front of Vista Playa. Sobrang kilala si Ate Irma don. Di pa kame nakakatagal, hinainan na kame ng early lunch namin. Inihaw na tilapia, alimasag at ensaladang mangga.

Hinatid na kame sa bahay after eating. Nagpalit na kame ng swimsuits and went to Puting Buhangin. Kuya Hermie our boatman is Ate Irma’s brother, mabaet naman si kuya.

After sa Puting Buhangin, diretso na kame ng Borawan. Ang daming tao. They have signal, kaya tuwang tuwa naman kame. We had halo-halo (P 30), masarap naman. Mineral water costs 15 (500ml) at malamig naman. Ok rin sa Borawan kase they have cottages, bathroom, net for volleyball, security guard, water sports, sari sari store and carinderia. May net sa beach para di mapasukan ng jelly fish, pero merong nakakalusot. The water in Borawan isnt clear as Puting Buhangin and Dampalitan.

Walang sunset in Borawan, natatakpan ng bundok. Pero nung pabalik na kame sa house, wow ang ganda ng sky. Sunset, pero di na namin makita ang sun. 😀

Pagbalik ng house, nag-wash up and nag-dinner. Ate Irma prepared inihaw na liempo and adobong manok. Sarap! Busog na naman kame. (no pic ng food sa kagutuman at excited kumain). After eating, pahinga saglit then shower. Tapos Sally, Cris and I went to the store para bumili ng inumin. Tanduay Ice and that flavored beer binili namin. We were all tired kaya di naman kame nakarami.

I was the first to wake up the next day. Dumating na rin yun manang na nag-prep ng breakfast namin. Merong Longganisa, sunny side up egg, rice, coffee. Busog! Around 9am, we’re of to Dampalitan Island. Para syang Anawangin. Pero parang sya ang favorite ko sa tatlo naming napuntahan.

Water is clear, sand is creamy. With jelly fish pa rin. So no one even bothered to dip in the water. We just sat there, took pictures, ate halo halo. Chillax!

Around 12, we left Dampalitan and nag-ready pauwi. Super init lang no! Hahaha 1ish, we’re at Lucena na. Ate late lunch at Chowking. Dito na kame naghiwa-hiwalay. Sally and I rode the bus to Pasay. And it was traffic. Manila na kame around 8pm.

I had a great time.
