Hello World!!!

I seem to have an illness.  It is called summer separation disorder.  Haha.  I still cannot get over summer.  I still want go to more beaches and enjoy the sun……  Although that is achievable, all I need is to have time.  Thats it time, oh why your so precious?

Since Im still in summer mode, why not talk about our company summer outing and team building.  It was held in Munting Buhangin Beach Camp, in Nasugbo Batangas.  It is about 2 to 3 hours away from Makati.  It is near enough for a weekend get away.  The beach is nice and the wind is refreshing too.  You can  sense of the rural atmosphere, calm and quiet and yet you know you are still near the urban chaos.

The activity was organized by our Human Resource Department.  They prepared various fun games that promotes team building.  In fairness, the games were quite simple yet enjoyable.  It really stir the competitivenes in each employee; leaders came out with strategies and in the end team work prevails.  It was a day of fun and peer bonding.  Nothing serious really.  We just took a day out of our office cubicles and enjoyed the sand, sun and each other companies.

Hello World!!!

Our Coron adventure officially started when we safely landed in Busuanga airport.  Why Im even writing that?  Well, I just cannot forget how cute our plane was.  It was my first time riding a plane that small.  Yes, I am a little bit Scared and I think It was the first time that I really listened to the reminders given by the flight attendants.  They are a little bit different too.  But anyways were fine.

Welcome to Us!!!

Welcome to Us!!!

The cute plane. Captain thank you for flying us safely.

Just like any other tourists, We are exited to see the islets and beaches of Coron.  We are ready to be kissed by the sun and turn golden brown….haha.  That is why we wore long sleeves rashguard? Whatever…..

So our tour started around 7 AM.  We went to their pier and meet our tour assistant.  He pointed our boat that will be our ride for the day. Then, our Island hopping began.  I must say, when you go island hopping in Coron, its best to bring your own equipments (snorkle and the aqua shoes).  Also, do not forget to bring bread for the fishes.

Climbing Mt. Tapyas as cardio exercise

??????????

Hello World!!!

This is a late post.  Me and my travel buddies went to Coron last year.  We went there before Yolanda came. Thus, we were fortunate to see the landmark in Mt. Tapyas, the gigantic cross.  Im sure the view from the top is still the same.  It is literally breathtaking.

Depending on your lung capacity, the climb is about 15 minutes to 1 hour.  Hehe. We went there around 4 PM.  Perfect time, the sun is not so high and the wind is breezy.  Do not forget to bring water going up.  You might need it halfway.  Actually the climb is not that hard.  There are pathways and cemented stairs.  The problem is with me.  I do not have exercise.  That is because I am usually confined in the office from morning to late afternoon.  The result: my lungs was quite surprised with the activity.  Hahaha.  I almost give up.  I am thankful that my travel buddies were quite persistent,  I was able to reached the top.  I am so happy.  The view is really great.  It was worth the climb.

Who would have thought that I am short of breath here....Post parin....
