the adventures of yoshi

…almost home!

Posted in Travel and Trips by yoshi on May 10, 2010

hey guys! finally had a chance to sit and get some work done… i’ve been jetsetting and hotel hopping here in the philippines and its nice to stay stationary for more than a day.

its super hot here and i’m trying my damndest not to get all dark or else i fear i’ll look like an oompa loompa with my white hair and dookie brown skintone =X

so far i’ve been to makati (and all their malls… literally), boracay with their beautiful powder sand beaches (and parasailing), naga’s CWC for watersports enthusiasts, legaspi’s mayon volcano and swimming with the whale sharks (OMGGGGG i wish i had an underwater camera to share with you!!!!), and back to manila (for more shopping).

today is a holiday here because of the elections. been staying low since the people here take these campaigns VERY seriously… many people waited in the heat for hours to vote – some even fainted while waiting in line. but that’s for another day. uhm, yea, erap is running again – let’s hope for aquino!

i was able to meet up with vicky from greyone social/trilogy/status magazine and chat with her for a bit – finally, a nice conversation in full english! (seriously, if you heard my tagalog, you would die of laughter) hoping to meet up with rosario (her sis) tomorrow at the mall of asia… another SM mall hehehehhee.

so what next?

the bf left this morning for ny so its just my aunt and me – in a few days we’ll head off to el nido, palawan – can’t wait! i’ve heard so many great things!!!!

oh yea – i’ve been eating a lot of bangus =)

gah, i’m already dreading to return home and back to work, but i miss my kitties and and my bike!

photos to come! promise!
