So on our third day and after a quick breakfast, we decided to head to the beach to do some surfing. The beach here is awesome since the beach is not that deep compared to Baler (unless of course you go like 10 miles away from the shore). So with that, we were able to get a long ride on the surf. After a little refresher course (we already know what to do since we did it before in Baler, but just to be on the safe side =p), we chose our boards and surfed away.

Lai’s moment…. She doesn’t have a picture riding the board when we were at Baler.
Ajie’s moment din…. Haha.. 1st time to surf so we took a picture.

There’s a little backstory during our trip here. Cye got injured during our surfing session; luckily we have a nurse on board (Go Ajie!).
Now here is the real adventure. Before our surfing session, there was a brownout at the resort. We didn’t mind since after surfing, we’ll just have to shower and then go to Me-an’s place. But lo and behold, we learned that we also have no water! So, no electricity = no water. Nice no?
Since there was a poso (a dug-out water well), which was shared by ALL guests there, we just had a quick wash, and I mean just wash. So we planned to just have a quick wash and have our shower at Me-an’s place.

After this jeepney ride, we arrived at the tricycle terminal where we waited for Ling (Real name Joanna. Figure it out, hehe!). So after an adventurous tricycle ride (Me-an and Ling’s tricycle got a snake!), Me-an treated us to a lunch at their place (yum! And oh so delicious apple mangoes from their tree!) and allowed us to have our showers at their place (Thank God! hehe).
The Mutated-Delicious Apple-Mango. (I said mutated since it was very large!) You don’t even have to climb the tree, you just have to stretch your hands to get a mango.
So after a delicious lunch and a welcome shower, Me-an took us to La Union Botanical Garden. The ride going there was fun. We rode a jeepney going up a mountain. What was funny was that along the way, there were lots of fruit-bearing trees that if you decided to jog here, you’ll be eating along the way.
A dog rode with us during our trip.

A little rest after a long walk.
So after the botanical garden, we had a little rest at Me-an’s place. After a quick rest, we did a little city tour courtesy of Me-an and ate at Midway Grill.
Me-an, Kylie (Me-an’s friend, we met her at the resto), and the others….. (hehe, Cye and Lai pala)
Her name is Kylie. Irereto natin to sa pamangkin ni Cye, hehehe.

After a hearty dinner, we went back to Me-an’s place for a little rest before going home.

So after some rest, we headed straight to the bus terminal to go home and back to reality. =(
And there you have it! Our little get-away before vacation ended (di naman kami pumapasok school a, hehe). Looking forward to go to Baguio again…. And to surf…. And to have another vacation…. =(
