Haven’t blogged for a few days because I’ve been so busy at work and hanging out with my cousins who are on a vacation here in the Philippines till the first week of July. It’s been five years (I think) since I last saw them in person so I’ve been spending a lot of time with them while they’re still here.
This weekend (June 15-16, 2013) we went on a swimming trip at Villa Concepcion in Bulacan. The place and the food were... MEH! But it was the bonding time that mattered more so, whatever. Well, let me share with you all how the outing went. I hope you don’t mind.

The room we had was quite spacious and was okay but we can’t really bring in nor consume liquor inside so BOO! Hahaha! First day, I was just hanging out in our room with younger sister Czai (theblacksheeproject.blogspot.com) while my younger cousins were at the wave pool already having fun and all. I wasn’t really in the mood on the first day. I just want to chill and hang out.

We had dinner at the resort’s canteen of some sort and the food was okay, I think, but some of my family members thought it didn’t taste really good. Well, I’m not a foodie to begin with so I didn’t really give a shit. So after the dinner, we went back in our rooms, played a card game and then went to sleep early. Damn, come on, who sleeps at 10 in the evening? Ahahaha!

We woke up early and had breakfast courtesy of the resort because the overnight has a free breakfast meal. I just had rice, corned beef, scrambled egg and coffee. Nothing really special about the meal, it was okay for me, again. So after breakfast, I changed into my swimming clothes and dipped into the pool.

I used to love swimming. I mean, not swimming like playing in the pool and all, real swimming is more like it. However, I guess I just wanted to hang out with my cousins but wasn’t really in the mood because I have the stupid cold, so I kept sniffing and can’t do proper breathing while swimming. I was having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the pool I can barely reach and when I used the slide, I feel like my nose was automatically sniffing in water. Hahaha! But the wave pool tired me out. Huge splashes of waves and more photo ops was enjoyed so hooray for that. Although I’m like the oldest of ‘em all, I still managed to have fun and just enjoy the day with my cousins.
After swimming and all, we had lunch at Mang Inasal and had them put chicken oil on their rice and really did enjoy the sisig as well. The last inasal they were able to taste was Bacolod Chicken Inasal and back then, Inasal wasn’t really a big fast food chain thing unlike now. Things really have changed.
On the way home, we were all chatting about our child hood like why were we so into WWE or what was the last anime they’ve seen here in the Philippines. We were also reminiscing some of the most embarrassing moments we’ve had and how we were back then. Oh, we remembered collecting and playing with our 101 Dalmatians thanks to McDonald’s Happy Meals and playing with our UNO blocks and stuff. Oh those were the days, indeed.
