Eat ○ Sleep ○ Wake ○ Board ○ CWC


Originally - Nina, Dyan and I planned to revisit the gorgeous beach in Calaguas. But since the weather was not cooperative and the waves are notorious (in the summer month of March?!) we decided to cancel the beach trip. (Dyan must have really been delighted, you have no idea how much energy we exerted just to convince her about the boat ride in that supposedly Calaguas trip Ü).

And so we ended up in CWC instead. Not bad, it's another new adventure for me to try! Been hearing a lot of this wakeboarding activity, now it's time for us to experience it!


Upon landing in Naga airport, we looked for CWC's shuttle. Yes, it's a free ride to the wakeboarding complex. How convenient! Anyone can ride this shuttle, whether you're a stay in guest or not.
welcome to CWC

The staffs welcomed and accommodated us. We told them we're not checking in. We're just there fora day trip. They immediately assigned a shuttle to drive us to the wakeboarding complex itself.

In the meantime, the girls were busy..

sige nga, turuan mo yan!

yare ka kay Ati pag wala kang natutunan! haha!



Moving on.. ^_^

We finally reached the place. It's indeed world class. No wonder, international competitions are being held here.


register and pay here



As per Mozilla's, it's ok to pay for just an hour use of the facilities and vest. Besides, you wont be charge for anything in excess of 1-hour! Super winner tip!

time for some briefing



For beginners, it's advisable to try knee-boarding first. and I wasn't surprised that the briefing only took 5 minutes. Haha

The equipment and the whole area look intimidating (and this activity looks scary too), no one wanted to be the 1st to go!


cable park
those fast cables will pull you


dare devils' delights
told you, it looks intimidating (at 1st)



But since Nina and I are insured, walang dapat ikatakot. Game na!


iba na ang may life insurance!


praying na sana di makalas yung maliliit kong buto..


But before I knew it, the cable already pulled me away!


weee!


surprisingly, this is fun!


It's not as easy as you think, but it's addicting! No wonder, we found ourselves doing it over and over again. Knee boarding is exciting. But actual wakeboarding (standing position) is even better for sure.


winch park
for beginner wakeboarders

The cable in Winch Park pulls slower than those in the main Cable Park. Perfect for beginners. Again, we were briefed for 5 mins, and we're good to go!

I admit I had several attempts first before I can actually stand up. Lunod moments sa slimy waters. Eekie! But finally...


my 1st wakeboarding experience


4th semplang of the day ^_^


We had fun, seriously. Pero ang sakit sa braso grabe. After 2.5 hours, my arms felt numb. It's time to stop and eat.


make your own pasta
the price is reasonable

Fettuccine Pesto with shrimps and chicken for me
the serving is generous. this dish is tasty. ♥


Pomodoro Pasta for Dyan
i enjoyed the sauce!


Aglio Oilo Pasta for Nina


Laing Pizza
soft, thin crust with moderate spiciness. the twist is remarkable!


After lunch, we headed to the pool. There's no extra charges for using this facility.


CWC's pool area

It's too hot, di keri ng balat ko ang tindi ng sikat ng araw so only Nina and Dyan managed to swim. FYI, im not a fan of swimming pools.


After a while, we spent our time watching the dare devils do some tricks. Impressive! =)


whoa!


the expert's show

..and opcors, boy watching! ^_^


it's raining (bisig) men everywhere!


I admit I was hesitant about this CWC plan at first so I was surprised to see myself enjoying this whole experience.


colors of summer at CWC


We left CWC and proceeded to SM Naga. Dine at Bigg's of course!


Bigg's ribs never fail to satisfy me. Affordable pa!


Now, where did we sleep that day?
We'd like to thank Casa Ofelia for accommodating us for free. Take a look at this secluded resort.

Why I Dont Like Traveling with Dyan and Nina?
amoy old age ang kwarto namin dahil sa Ginger Liniment at Salonpas! LOL


Nina
Doesnt wear make up or anything in the face! Ang bilis nya lagi mag-ayos!
Kakapressure! =)

Dyan
Teh, you know i love you pero napakabagal mo talaga kumilos.
Partida ikaw na unang naligo pero ikaw pa din huling naging ready. haha!



stolen from Dyan's FB


There are many ways to get to CWC. We flew from Manila, but if you are visiting other cities such as Batangas, you will be able to make it a 4 hour road trip. As far as booking hotels in Batangas and CWC, Expedia always offers great deals.


I look forward to a lot more of our laugh trips slash travels together!
Thank you mga teh! Paaaak! ♥
