more pix from oct 2006

can i just say i HATE typhoon Milenyo?!?! almost a year of planning went down the storm drain as all our frantic emails and change of itineraries for Baguio, Vigan, Subic, Hundred islands,etc. were swept away by the supertyphoon and the fear of facing all sorts of discomfort on the road to the north. So we had to change our plans and I was not ready with a plan B. All September long, we had really hot , summery weather that I just assumed would last till October and we would be awed by the sheer beauty of nature. So we went to San Juan, Batangas, and Lipa and Taal and Tagaytay instead. I must admit that i was a little disappointed with La Luz beach resort.

Boracay has spoiled all the other beaches for me. The sand wasn't fine, very coarse and pebbly. The place is better seen during the summer, I guess because when we went there the sky was overcast and the strong waves sent me back to shore quick. Also, there are no TVs in the rooms which would have driven Tita Chuchie mad (it was Bituing walang ningning's last week) had we not generated our own entertainment(a.k.a. Imbestigador!)

Luckily, my Canadian cousins liked the place. They really had a positive vibe about the place and were sad to leave.

In lieu of Vigan, we settled for Taal which also had some old houses though not all on one street but scattered throughout the town. We also got some juicy gossip about Ogie Alcasid because he's from this place!

How I wish we had taken the Old Manila tour I had with Tita Luday. It was an enlightening experience! Well, maybe next time!
Oh and by the way, Twinkle is now a 4-eyes! All that reading and checking has finally taken its toll on her eyes and she's now one of us! Bwahahahaha!
