Longing for long weekends

Iduyan mo ang duyan ko. unti-unti itulak mo. kung maaaring pihitin ang mundo pabalik. sana'y iduyan mo ang duyan ko, muli. (sung by basil valdez, lyrics by ryan cayabyab) 

Last weekend was the last long weekend of the year before the Christmas holidays. 'twas an opportunity too good to pass up to make a short trip to Bacolod and Silay. With the travel time and commute, it's virtually impossible to cover too much ground and still enjoy the trip. So we decided to let the hours unravel with casualness and languidness. And while I had a bout of food poisoning later in the trip (more on this on a more complete post next week), it was still a very enjoyable trip, with a lot of hours logged on a hammock by the sea.  At times, the best things in life are the simplest joys we often miss hurrying through the harried pace of the city.

whoa! food poisoning?

tama ka bai, sometimes its just best to enjoy the trip instead of getting too concerned on taking photos.

nice shot! coffeebook-material!

the best things in life are still free. we just need to open our eyes (and soul) to appreciate them.

That was one relaxing place. Pagkakain higa! hahaha.

estan said...

well, that food poisoning experience would make it memorable. hehehe

pero maganda talaga magduyan duyan lang. especially kung malapit sa dagat. the best place i had this experience was in initao, misamis oriental inside the initao national park. just think of the fresh air and waves crashing on the sea below the cliff. bliss. i didn't want to go home but i need to catch the last bus trip to be just in Tangub City, Misamis Occidental.

dom, paborito ko ang duyan. nakikipagunahan ako pag nakakakita ako nyan, hahaha.

bai allan, i guess things happen for a reason and i'm very rusty for lack of practice so in my frustration, i try to heed ferdz's advice and cut some slack.

arlene, totoo yan. being with good friends din is a privilege we can sometimes take for granted.

wulfriend, totoo yan. grabe yung balay balaring, i can get used to that.

bai estan! nice to hear from you after quite a while. hahaha, the food poisoning was no joke but having friends who take care of you was great. i cannot thank them enough. as for the duyan, i can already visualize what you wrote though i have yet to venture to initao. simpleng bagay pero ibang klaseng saya ang dulot :-)

This weekend is our last long weekend before the holiday season and I intend to enjoy every bit of it.

Enjoy your regular-length weekend.

sarap nung treatment samin nung may-ari ng higad baybay floating restaurant. ipinagkabit pa kami ng extra duyan para we can relax while waiting for the sunset. yung food poisoning, hassle talaga but it helps na may mga kaibigan akong kasama na nag-alaga sakin :-)
