A DAY IN ALBAY

Last February, we had our Convention in Naga City, Camarines Sur, it was my second time going to the Bicol province, my first one was way back 2011 for the Ad Congress which was held in the CWC. I didn't have time to conquer the province that time because I was still an OJT for the AdCong.

This time, I planned everything so that we would get to see the attractions for the limited time that we had.

This trip was quite an adventure, we only had a day to spend in the beautiful Legazpi City. So this was our itinerary.

We arrived around 8am in Legazpi City from Manila via Isarog Bus Lines. We rode the JR Extreme Isarog Bus which costs Php1100. The trip was about 11 hours. 

Honestly, we really booked a plane to Legazpi from Manila, however, we had a problem with the name of my companion, Joy, long story short, we weren't able to take the flight because of that problem (I also blame the customer service representative of Cebu Pacific who speaks fast, I wasn't able to catch up and I being the idiot that I was that time kept on agreeing on what she said, hence the flight got fucked up.). Water under the bridge, we still managed to enjoy the travel via bus, it was a new experience because that was the first time I encountered a lazy boy chair on a bus. 

The Majestic Mt. Mayon

We directly went to our Hostel, the Mayon Backpackers, see we're cheap travelers, we managed to get a bed for 350 per night per person. It was a dormitory type room. We shared a room with others who happened to be foreigners. The trike from the Bus terminal to the Hostel costs 60 pesos.

First stop:

SINCERELY, CARTER by Whitney Gracia Williams

Just like what I've posted in my goodreads profile, I LOVE BESTFRIENDS-TO-LOVERS stories! They're just GREAT! This book got me super happy and weepy, the best kind of stories, with the high dose of kilig and drama.

PANDACA PYGMEA

JANUARY 11, 2016

RANDOM THOUGHTS

I'm going to Bicol next month for a Convention. Naga is the exact location but, since I'm going there, might as well have a little side trip to Legaspi, Albay. I booked a plane to Legaspi, while searching for places to go in Legaspi, I found Lake Danao and read the word Pandaca Pygmea. Pandaca Pygmea was once declared the smallest fish in the world, which can be found in Lake Danao. 

Pandaca Pygmea, the words stuck to me as a little child. 

I think I was about 8 years old when I attended a birthday party. The clowns in that party was fooling around, asking kids random questions thinking we don't know the answers.We were asked the question "Ano ang pinakamaliit na isda sa buong mundo?". Many answered "Dilis", and I being the shy kid that I was blurted out "PANDACA PYGMEA". The kids looked at me differently, like "what the hell is she saying" look. Even the clowns had that look. I explained it is found in Lake Danao and it really IS the smallest fish in the world. :) 

I got the prize. Maybe it was discussed at school that year that it stuck to me.

NOVEMBER 9 BOOK REVIEW

December 18, 2015

Looks like I'm on the roll tonight.

While uploading photos from yesterday's office Christmas Party and today's wedding, AND listening to James Reid's voice (swoon... he's so macho and his voice is so smooth and cold, how old is he anyway, I've been crushing on teenagers lately, the other one's Shawn Mendez, makes me feel like a cougar) I'll write a review about November 9 by Colleen Hoover. Twas release last November 10, but it took me weeks before considering to read it. I don't know why it took me weeks before reading it. Since i'm in love with Hoover's writing, my expectations were quite high.

MADDOX BROTHERS BOOK REVIEW

December 18, 2015

Just finished reading Beautiful Redemption this afternoon. 

I think its the third book of the Maddox Brothers by Jamie McGuire. 

Beautiful Disaster

Beautiful Oblivion
Beautiful Redemption

Let me tell you first that as much as I LOVE books, I have a little problem with remembering them. I've read hundreds of books already (well according to my Goodreads account, I've read 240 books as of today, December 18, 2015) and only a few sticks to me, only my favorites in which I like to re-read. 


So here's the deal, I've read the first book, Beautiful Disaster around three years ago (my Goodreads acount says I read it December 2012), Its about Travis and Abby, I loved it. Why? Because I'm a sucker for bestfriends to lovers stories, though they aren't really friends at first, it all started as a bet, then they became close, there's a lot of jealousy involved (I love the I-cant-love-you-because-im-your-friend-and-i-might-lose-you-but-i-dont-want-you-with-anyone-but-me kind of stories), Abby and Travis' relationship gave birth to problems in which the latter books will, uhmm, solve, right.
