CaramoanPeninsula.HolyWeek.2008

Finally i have the pictures na to post in my blog.
Grabe it took 2 weeks para mgkaroon ako ng copy.. Yung boracay entry ko, 10am ang flight to Manila, 11 nsa Megamall na kme. 1pm sa office. 3pm- uploaded na- my blog pa!
So much for the drama.. Here it goes!

.::. 18.March.2008 Everyone's on leave. As in Vacation Leave- except me. Hallersh, im only 1 week old in my new compny so kakapalan ng mukha ang pg-apply nun. Nweis, 8.30 pa naman ang Naga trip so carry pa pumasok. sayang ang pera dudes! Pasundo ako kc cant carry that big bag na my things ko that's good for 5 days. Dame nun ah. Not to mention nakaoffice attire ako, yikes!

Dinner muna at Cubao. Sa Old Spaghetti House.

Nakakamiss dito ang Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

After a quick dinner, we went to the terminal ASAP- as if maiiwan kame.

Bus seats are comfortable infrness. You really need those kinds para sa mga 12 hour trips! Yes darling, 12 hours! (if you know me mgtataka ka kung pano ko napapayag sumama sa ganito kalayong byahe- away from home..)
Nasearch ko kasi ang Caramoan Peninsula, at na amazed ako so GOLA na!
(yes frens, dala ko si George para di ako maiyak while away from home.)
Hint: PLEASE lang ha, wag nio isipin na stuff toy si George. Allergic ako sa girly stuffs!

Moving on, di ko naramdaman ang 12 hr bus ride dahil borlogs ako. And i admit it, malikot ako matulog. (masaya kna ha?) hehe
We reached Naga before daylight yata.

But Hey..
Wait..
There's more!

Another bus ride to Iriga- hometown of Carlo. Dito kme mgstay sa kanila..

.::. 19.March.2008 Finally finally finally.. HOME! Breakfast, pahinga, then ligo. Go na kame sa Mt.Mayon, where else.

Cagsawa Ruins

tower shot

Yey, ngpakita si Mayon Peak!

These shots were taken by some natives. Ang gagaling sa photography. Namaster na nila ang features ng Mayon. Though theyre not asking for anything, we paid them 150 for taking these wonderful shot.. Here's more..



Enjoy maciado kc nga my photographer. Ginabi tuloy kame..

Effort umuwe mga kapatid.. Kung alam nio lang. Natataranta kme (sila lang pla) kc last trip pauwe is 6pm. Start palang to ng gala naten sa Manila ah..

.::. 20.March.2008 Activity of the day is mgBisita Iglesia.

Our Lady of Penafrancia

colorful dome

circle of smiles

Yeps, we only manage to visit one church because we have a PUSOY DOS tournament back in Carlo's house.. Di tuloy tyo nakapunta sa Arrneyo church.

.::. 21.March.2008 Maaga pla kame today dahil Caramoan Peninsula Trip na! My golay. Bdw, we paid in advance for the package. If not pala, nakakamatay na adventure ang inabot namen. Virgin Island tlga cia. Bwal mg-arte. From Naga, we ride a van to Sabang. 1 hour ride un.

parang UAAP, blue and green ang colors namen

Then to Sabang, boatride. Here's the catch.. Kelangan kang mgpabuhat sa balikat para ka makasakay ng boat. Else mababasa ka kc hanggang dibdib ang tubig. What an experience dba?!

Cgro 60 seater lang ung boat BUT ginawa ytang 200 seater bigla. Yung last group na sumakay - acdg kay Carlo ay org sa Benilde ng mga deaf and mute. Pinapanood namen cla, at di cla napagod mgsign language for 1 hour! Daldalan to the maxx! Di kaya lumaki muscle nung mga un? hehe peace! =)

Fascinating ang view, ngaun lang ako nkpgtravel ng halos ilang meters lang layo ng boat sa shore. As in. Puro mountain ranges ang Bicol pla, kala ko nga nsa
Cordillera na kame or Sierra Madre. Amazing na my ganitong place sa Bicol na sikat lang only for it's Mayon.. So much for the volcano, promote Caramoan Peninsula..


Eto pa iba nameng kasama.. Atenistas are everywhere!

from bag to cap to shirt - dapat my logo ng Ateneo?

Pgdating sa Caramoan, derecho na sa bahay which we rented. The house is big, has three rooms. And three storey as well. And name it, kahit drumset (hehe) ay
available. Sulit na sulit. Lunch is set at 2pm yata (yeah dahil package, everything's scheduled). Then right after lunch, punta daw sa Our Lady of Holy Rosary, at beach..

To go to that grotto, we have to travel by boat pa. Ang jinet dears.. Di naman alam na 500 steps up ang dapat akyatin to reach the grotto! Kamusta dba? Wel, kinaya naman namen. Note: dala nameng tubig ay ung maliit lang, at hati pa kame dun.

spell Dehydration!

Rewarding naman sa taas, kita halos lahat ng other islands. Ang ganda..

wow Caramoan!

After makababa, at walang ngtitinda ng mineral water around, tiniis ko pa dn madehydrate kesa uminom ng softdrinks.

Gusto na namen bumalik sa bahay pero mgswim pa dw. Di ko na kaya. natulog nalang ako sa shore.. While he played PSP nalang.

tulog na naman ang drama

Imagine how hungry and thirsty and tired we are.. Arte ko, dame reklamo. Loko lang, Enjoy pa dn ang harutan moments lalo na nung muntik na bumaligtad ang
boat! saya sana nun.. hahaha


.::. 22.March.2008 Caramoan Island Hopping na! 14 of the best islands are closed in preparation for Survivor France. Perfect for the show ang islands ng Pinas, arent u proud?

Virgin Island

Dito isshoot ang Survivor France. Amazing!

Caramoan Beach

Tara na swimming!

Super pagod kame, at ang jijitims namen!! waaaah!

Sir Lloyd,
uhm, we dont advise you guys to go to Caramoan. Though alam ko maeenjoy nio kc konti tlga tao..or shud i say WALA!
Pls take considerations na dapat my kasama ka who can speak their native dialect (sobrang walang ngtatagalog dun!) + you SHUD take a package, ELSE mahihirapan kyo na makahanap ng place to stay, place to eat, at transfer rides.

Roninkotwo said...

Salamat sa advice chyng..cge, pupunta kami dun pag kasama kayo..pra may tour guide at photographer na kami na malupet..=)

Thanks sis for sharing your blog with me. I stumbled upon your perya theme outreach program. Natuwa ako as I am planning to do/ participate in one myself.

Very informative Caramoan and Zambales trip mo. Eto ang 2 target destinations ko this year. Sana matupad.

Thanks and keep travellin'!

^ gladdy from GT?
hello! pursue your travels! maganda ang pinas! ♥

san nyo balak mag outreach?

gladdy said...

Yup. HIPster here. :)

Hindi ko pa sure eh. I plan to research. Siguro start ako sa small community/ institution muna kasi di ko pa sure if may makasama ako or ako lang ang magfinance. Hindi naman ako kayamananan. :P If you have suggestions though, please do tell. :)
