Sun Worshipers

Coco Palms' awesome Chocolate and Cappuccino Shakes (so delicious and affordable) 

This happened 2 weeks ago. We always end up by the poolside to work on our tan every rest days we got. My bff/roomie and I both work from Mondays to Fridays, worse, I have to stretch up to Saturday or sometimes Sunday. But somehow, we really get the chance to hit the beach or pool. It's a bit late for me to post this (with other pending posts behind) but I think it's still fine though.

Our hometown is in the northern part of Cebu. We were in this resort, a 10-minute motorcycle ride from our houses, called Coco Palms. I must admit that I love this place among all others in Danao City because there's this whole view of the mountains with some coconut trees and seaside around. But sorry to say that their customer service is such a wreck I thought it's going to change but on our last visit, we were really astounded by the concierge lady. Anyhow, we still had fun under the sun. ;)

Sommar 2013 x White Pebbles, Blue-dazed Skies

Filipinos all know how summer heat embraces us with so much power. Ain't it easy if you're strolling down the road with buildings, cars and the usual pollution we have in the country. On the sunny, brighter side, everyone gets pumped-up when the tropical warmth hits (apart from the ladies who use too much whitening lotions and stuff, I'm sorry, dear, it's the best of the year now to work on our tans!).

Our first destination was Bantayan Island, north of Cebu, Philippines. Oh my, for the past years, been coming here in numerous times and I am so so glad that it's still the same island I have known for years. And as a budget traveler, I had to check my economy from time to time.

Inside my bag, of course, one of the stuff I got was my Nivea sun spray. I worship the sun so much but I do bother to look after my skin, to protect it from the damaging rays of the sun. 

I was with my APO brothers and sisters as well as my high school mates, close friends and my BFF/roomie. We had to experience the island-hopping together and we really had so much fun, met new friends and came to realize the things that are important when we travel. I am not seasoned yet but I do know how it gets rough sometimes.

 I have also realized that there are some people who, no matter how much you try to let them fit in, they wouldn't. As far as money, fame and the latest gadgets are concerned, I truly go to those side which travel and company matters the most. The trip was good, I have learned a lot of things in life, more and more.

Anyhoo, I am very thankful to live in this very beautiful, warm and summery land. I feel so blessed to be able to touch the sands, kiss the sea, breathe the fresh air and laugh with friends, new-found friends and the others. But of course, it's also the time of the year to thank God for saving us from our sins. 

Life is good. Be nice to everyone, living or non-living things. 

Happy Summer to all!
