wicked trip

Summer of '10, pedor & i went to siquijor for our summer getaway and to celebrate my birthday. that was my second time to visit siquijor. the first time i had been there was when i was still in college. it was pedor's first though. we had spent 2 nights and 3 days in there and the experience was wickedly outrageous (translated as: awesome).

Justify Full (siquijor, siquijor - view at the pier)

We stayed at hotel Agripino. it is actually a government owned and managed hotel. we had a clean room with hot and cold shower for only P800 per night. and if you are on a budget you can just rent a tent for like P200 and you can set it up near the beach. the place is great for backpackers. They have their own restaurant as well and they serve food and drinks until 9 pm.

On our second day we tour the island and it only cost us around P750 which was not bad at all. manong driver was our tour guide but i forgot his name. first stop: cambugahay falls.

(don't go chasing waterfalls...lol)

Then we went to Maria to visit its famous Capilay Spring Park. we also stopped at Castaways beach cafe (still in Maria) 'coz i needed to pee and pedor had a bottle of coke. just in front of castaways is a beach with crystal clear water so i took some pictures too :)

then we went to coco grove beach resort and then headed to coral cay resort where i took a dip and pedor took pictures. and lastly we visited siquijor's famous 400 year 0ld balete tree.

(i was aiming for the parrot on this picture but the parrot was camera shy and pedor isn't so i took a pic of him instead lol)

after party (read as: "after-being-hospitalized" party)

this is going to be a very late post already (blame it on the procrastinator in me hehe). i wasn't able to enjoy this year's Sinulog because i was diagnosed with amoebiasis. I don't know where i've got that bacteria but one thing's for sure i got pissed because it stopped me from enjoying the city's party. i stayed in the hospital for like a week and the telly's remote control was my only bestfriend. (i am just exaggerating, my bestfriend visited me though)

moving on, while i was lying there on that bed, i promised myself an after party. i was thinking , i need to celebrate life as i am still alive (but at the back of my mind i know i was just looking for some excuse: and in this case it was soooo damn lame hahaha). sinulog night came and friends bombarded me with text messages on how they've enjoyed the night. i envied them :(

and so... after a week of medication, 13 bags of IV fluids, non-stop blood pressure tests and monitored temperature & stool... time for revenge (should i type in: wicked laugh? i did anyways)

we went to pipeline for some chillaxin' night. I had my first taste of GPS & we enjoyed the food and the night as well.

*my tagay :)

* ice cold beers

* pipeline's gambas (quite salty though but still great)

*pipe's chiken buffalo wings (this one's amazing 2 thumbs up)

*pipe's onion rings (one of my favorites)

* with friends

Pipeline Cebu located @ 479-E Archbishop Reyes Ave. Cebu 6000
