Back to back hometown experience!

Yes, yes. I know I’ve been out of the blogging world for an almost two good weeks now, and I am really sorry for that.  Promise, i have  really good reasons.

REASON 1:

Wedding of the year.

Nope, not me yet, unfortunately, but it was for Apol and Mike, close friends of ours.  I braved and drove the out-of-the-city location, to witness as their bridesmaid, the exchange of their love and vows and commitment in front of God, their loved-ones, the world.  It was a wonderful experience.  Truly, the love was in the air that time that i really do hope that the next wedding that I will be attending will be my own wedding.  Talked about rubbing it all in, sisters, haha but i am keeping my fingers crossed, just in case!

REASON 2:

A break from work.

I took a few days off to be with my family as well.  As one of my yearly pacts, i brought them to Ocean Adventure, an out-of-the-city attraction, a mere 3 hours away  from Manila, to be indulged by the dolphins, sea lions and some acrobatic moves from professional African stuntsmen.  The kid at heart in me was truly leaping for joy!

REASON 3:

The beach called me.

Flipflops, an eyeshades, and a bag of beach paraphernalias.  My travel buddies went for a 3 days-2 nights escape somewhere north of Manila.  Zambales to be exact, we island-hopped the place, then swam to its ocean and sank into its sands.  Actually, we did more than swim, we skinny dipped the pool, a dare that yours truly, LuvPaj, and Abby quite happily gave into.  Scratch that, we were not just happy, we were excited to tick that in our bucket list.  And we did, with flying colors!

These three reasons were enough for me to ignore the distance that i travelled to, to be able to get home, back and forth, back and forth.  Nothing can beat the satisfying feeling to be with family and friends, no matter how short the time is.  But when you just focus on the memories that you have created, the laughs that you have shared, the photos you’ve taken, and the love you have felt, it was all enough, IT WAS ALL WORTH IT.

I am glad i experienced them, and i would not give a second thought to do them again, if an opportunity comes, say next two-three months after?! 🙂
