A Looooong Weekend

I've been MIA from the blogging [and Facebooking, Mutiply-ing] world for 5 days because me and the gang trooped over to the northest part of Luzon for a little R and R, lots of driving and sleeping in the road and a whole lot of fun. Yep -- me and my officemates trooped over to the provinces of La Union, Dagupan, Pangasinan and Ilocos [Norte and Sur] whew!

Hella fun but I've no photos to show you yet, as I'm not yet done compiling all the photos from the trip. When you're traveling with 3 photographers, it's futile to take your own photos, haha!

A few of my trip's highlights:

  • The windmills! *giggles* They just have that relaxing effect.
  • Matutina's in Dagupan = The best garlic buttered shrimp EVER. As in EVER, EVER.
  • Cafe Leona in Vigan + Old school architecture + Bagnet + Cheese Chichacorn = A Happy Me
  • Saud Beach Resort in Pagudpud = Absolute heaven
  • The Taiwanese music our radio is picking up upon reaching Pagudpud. Cool, right?
  • Attempting to surf in La Union and being carried back to the shore with no effort
  • Poker nights + Winning in Poker + learning how to play Pusoy Dos and Pusoy [card games a little similar to Poker]
  • Guzzling Ginebra Premium [thank you, SMC] mixed with Minute Maid
  • Endless supply of Marlboro Lights

If I'm gonna be asked if I wanna go back? There's only one answer: OH YEAH.
