I spent some time here early part of the morning while the sun was not yet too hot to expose myself. The water is still far so i decide to laze around here. They have the mat but i forgot to borrow one of those Luxury towels they have so that the laxing would be more comfortable. At around 9 i left the nook because other guests are started coming and they love to sun bathe in this spot. There are around 12 lazing out recliners over there and as of this time, they are all full.
After this post, am going out to enjoy the water on my own. The daughter is still lazing in bed.
Christmas Day 2010 was spent away from home. Dimple and I spent it in one of the resort islands in Bohol. Christmas night was spent away from the loud blasts of Christmas firecrackers that fills the city air.
What i love about it was the simple but special dinner of fish steak and jackfruit salad and the monggo bean soup. Though for those who eats pork they can chose between the fish steak or the meat balls.
Here’s a few of my Christmas day photos. 🙂
The food! Together with this was the soup and mango shake to treat the sweet tooth. 🙂
One of the family guests enjoying their Christmas dinner.
The dancing Santa girls. 🙂 entertaining us with a dance.
The Achy Breaky Heart dance for everyone
The singing and dancing lasted for hours. I thought i would not moved out of my seat but i did and it feels like a had more than an hour of gym time. lol! Hit the bed at almost 1 am. But before ending this post, here’s my last photo,
the fire of the Christmas spirit 🙂
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas weekend.
We are away from my hometown for 12 days. Six days has already passed and we are counting to the 12. How i wish time would stop so that it would be forever holiday and there is no work but just live a life with no pressure. But life is not like that.
It’s our 6th day in Bohol particularly in La Estrella Resort but i’ve spent only 1 full day at the resort and that was on Christmas Day (December 25, 2010). All the other 5 days are spent away from the island. Today was the 5th and Dimple was left behind as there were guests who traveled with us to Tagbilaran and on our way back, we also had 5 guests whom we met at the airport. So we were full and just no space for Dimple. With the 5 days always leaving the resort, it feels like i started to feel that the trip is getting shorter and shorter but still i haven’t let go of the fear crossing the sea space between Mucpoc and La Estrella. I have this fear of the sea because i can’t swim fgs! lol!
We arrived sometime before 7 pm and she was at the gazebo Facebooking. I asked her how was her day and she said that she spent it reading and she got online not very long before we arrived.
Anyway, i thought of posting a couple of pictures i took for a day. I will post it in my photo blog so you can check out my photo blog from time to time.
I really need to do updates in all of my blogs. I have this lappy with me and i can get online on the schedule times but most of the time am away from the resort and when we get back in the evening, Dimple is there. If there is no wifi then she has her anime movies. So i almost don’t own my lappy. She feels like she’s the owner. lol!
Location: Zhangjiakou Vocational and Technical College
–school officials and students from other departments/schools were invited to witness the First Christmas program of the school and headed by the English Department.
Each class presented a part to serve as their examination.
The head of our Department, Penny Liu gave the welcome remarks. She said it in English and also in Chinese for everyone’s understanding.
I also had my part. Guess?
Not a Christmas song. They don’t have a Christmas song.
I sang a love song.
I now forgot the title of the song and the one who sang it. But sort of an old love song.
It feels so scary but i finished the song all right. 🙂
After the program, in the evening, I went out with my co-teachers and we had our get together. I did not come home that night. Came home December 25th in the afternoon because I had an appointment online at 2 pm.
Daughter and I left Iligan City almost 6 in the evening. Sounds quite late but the boat was scheduled to depart at 10:45 pm. Dimple and I boarded the Rural Transit because there was no gray bus at the Super 5 station. We arrived a little bit before 8 pm so we just took a jeep to Gaisano to eat dinner. We had a quick dinner at Jollibee – Gaisano City. Then from there, we took a motor trike direct to the pier and we paid 20 pesos each. The loading up the boat has not yet started when we arrived at the waiting area.
They were strict in their luggage and quarantine inspection. They also have K9 dogs to sniff on all luggage. The dog was a girl and we dunno her name but we call her “good girl” because her boss called her good girl after behaving.
This is good girl in action. 🙂
Dimple’s Boarding Pass
I also had mine. We were brought to the foot of the gangplank by bus. The distance from the waiting area to the boat was just so near yet they want organize system, so we still took the bus/couch.
The moving bus. 🙂
The daughter and me.
After we settled our things, we roam around and check out the side deck. CDO pier was already quiet because SF 12 was the last one to depart.
I was in the sky that day. There was a storm before my flight at 4:30 that is why the flight was delayed sometime. So the photos i will be sharing is of thick clouds. I saw a bit of the sun beyond those thick clouds. 🙂
Photos are SOOC but resize.

I just came from Bangkok and i have seen that buy and sell goods like garments and fashion bags and shoes is a very good business venture. The whole sale price is very low that when the product reaches here you still can gain even though you won’t let it in level with the mall price. Items that is worth buying in whole sale price are: shoes, bags, women clothes, men clothes, lingerie , kiddie clothes, and accessories.
I am interested of having a botique but i still need to work on the capital. 🙂
