UPDATED: I Had A Blast Of A Weekend

I had a blast of a weekend  with good friends from Gensan and Davao

This was a belated birthday treat of Davao Bloggers Lyle Santos and Andrew dela Serna

The venue was the Abella Vacation House in Lorega, Bukidnon

Cousins Ria Jose and Joanna Abella were our gracious hostesses and, boy, did they pamper us

Brendel Balaga, Dulce Lada, Meiyah Laborte and Faust Principe completed the Davao gang

Kuya Avel Manansala, Donna Mae Congson, Mandi Nicolas and myself travelled all the way from Gensan

We had an early lunch at Yellow Fin Restaurant and feasted on our spring chicken meal

By the time that we were on our way to Lorega, the excitement was reaching its peak

And we were not disappointed

Food and drinks were overflowing

And the ambience was perfect for us to relax

It was a great chance to catch up with each other too

Dinner was about sea crabs, tuna belly and tuna sashimi

The board games that followed pumped the competitive nature in us

We had fun playing CRANIUM and THE BIG TABOO

It was about 12:00 midnight when we decided to get serious

This time, each of us shared our impressions about each other

It’s always heartwarming to hear positive comments from other people

In my heart, I felt a stronger connection with my friends

I slept soundly not minding the cold — I was happy

I woke up feeling refreshed

i wanted to take a bath but the water was so cold – ice-cold

I opted to just wash my face and change into fresh clothes

For breakfast, we had mushrooms and cheese omelet, daing na bangus, pork tocino & longganisa

The early risers already did their morning walk and exercise

Most of us were just lounging and recalling what happened the night before

We didn’t notice that it was already lunchtime and  it was time to eat

This time pork adobo and crispy fried chicken were prepared for us

All of us just kissed our diets goodbye today

Packing our bags was quick

The picture-taking took a little longer

It seemed like we didn’t want everything to end so soon

But it was time to go – back to our own realities

Now that I’m home alone, I couldn’t help but feel lonesome

But looking at the pictures now confirmed the fact that the friendships that I nourished today will be forever treasured

This thought is good enough reason for me to sleep soundly again, tonight…
