OMG! (Oh my Gensan) I chose Anilao over you!

To NAIA Terminal 3 or to Buendia LRT Station? Yeah.. Maybe most of you will choose the first one. Boo me coz I just found myself heading to the latter. So the question is? Is it worth it?

I booked a flight 6 months before for this supposedly another solo trip to Gensan. (Yes I already anticipated I'll enjoy my Coron Trip so I ended up booking another one. Hayok lang. hihihi!) But Chyng asked me to join the trip she arranged coz I might have a chance to meet other bloggers and readers (or should I say FANS of her blog. hehe!) Honestly, we've known each other for 4 years now but we never got the chance to go on a trip together. Who am I to refuse? Shoot! Count me in! Anyway, hindi naman siguro lalayas ang Gensan sa kinalalagyan niya. I've been to Anilao before but I was disappointed with their underwater world so I never really set any expectations on that part. With that, the resort at least must be gorgeous or else Angelina will constantly be on my mind for the rest of my stay shouting "Yaya!! You're such a loser!". Ayoko. hahah!

My father drove me to Jollibee, LRT Buendia to meet everyone. I thought may mahaharot kaming boys but no. Hahah! Nagmistulang field trip ng Miriam College. Exclusive for all girls. Hahaha! Intentional or not, keriboom-boom itechiwa. Few steps lang nandun na yung van shuttle to Anilao. Woot woot!

We waited for the van to be filled up for like an hour (Char! OA lang.) and kwentuhan galore na. The trip took us about 2 hours I think. 

(Pictures with links are not mine. If you're going to ask who owns it, you know what to do.)

The jump off point
A boat exclusively owned by Portulano Resort was there waiting for us. (Nanguna ako dahil alam kong mauubusan ng bubong ang iba. hahaha!) Sorry girls. Maaagnas ako sa araw.


First impression (FAIL! lol!):
(I've known Chyng and Rona for 4 years now so forgive me if I excluded them from the list.)

Gladys (untiedescape.blogspot.com) - well.. being a solo joiner, I already expected she would be shy and all. (Shhhh.. diyan ako nagkamali. Oops! hahah! Don't worry girl. Walang lalagan. hihihihi!)

Kath (realidad-kathleen.blogspot.com) - I met her 2 days before. We attended the IMPRINT event. I thought siya yung tipong takot sa tao kasi she's from the province pa pero ako ang napahiya. She mentioned she also attended the event held by the Sole Sisters. Siya pa daw mismo lumalapit sa mga bloggers. Taob ako. hahah! I don't have the courage to do that promise. I'm shy (Sinong hindi naniniwala ha!?)

Pam - Kath's friend. I felt she was the type who wouldn't bother to share a few bits of her life. Well, bukod sa mahilig kasi siya matulog lang (take note, di pa ata kami umaalis sa buendia pungay na siya. hahah!), mukang mahiyain din. Again, I was wrong. Her story was just one of the highlights of this trip mind you. Aylabet girl! Another Shhhh... hihihi!

Saids - nakaka-tomboy ang beauty niya. (pa-kape ka naman. hahah!) Seriously, muka siyang supladita tuloy. I never thought magkakasundo kami. Pang masa kasi ang sakin e. hahah! Char!

Carla (blissfulguro.blogspot.com) - ah eto talaga... maling mali ako. Sa tagal kong naging studyante, buong akala ko allergic ang teacher sa ingay. Dun ako nagkamali. Siya pasimuno. hahaha! Nakakabuhay ng dugo ang energy niya. Fully charged.

See? Girls instinct can sometimes be wrong. (Teka babae nga ba talaga ko?! hahah!)

Halimaw! Ang ganda niya! Great view and fine weather welcomed us

And I truly believed na araw talaga namin yun. Naks! Walang ibang guest. Wooohooo! Let's check out the room..

All-four-one


...and a place for Emoterang praglet like me. hihih!


See? Told you! hahah!


Dining
Shempre dumiretso na kami ng kusina agad agad. Nagkakarambola na tiyan ko. Buffet meals served just for the 8 of us. What I love about resorts in any part of Batangas is the bottomless kapeng Barako. Coffee addict ba kamo?? Oh yes I'm GUILTY!

Time to eat!

Yummy noh? .... ng pagkain. heheheh!

If you just want a simple place to hang out, Portulano offers a lot of spots where in you can just lay down and feel the vibe of just being out of the busy world of metro. Go ahead! Isalampak na mga pwet na yan!

Relaxing Ambiance

Oh duyan my duyan!
 
Found a  ♫Today I swear I'm not doing anything..♫ spot! Agree?

Play area


Woot! There's an infinity pool! (stay put and see what happened after a few hours)

Hindi ko alam kung merong may balat sa pwet at biglang nag-iba ang timpla ng weather. Umariba ang waves. DELUBYO! hahah! Check these out..


Kulang na lang sumampa ang bangka sa platform

See? that's where we docked few hours ago
 
Wushuuu! hahah! Tidal wave

Gusto ko pa naming mabuhay kaya dun na lang kami sa infinity pool na maalat din naman. Mag-aasin din ang wiwi mo pag nakainom ka ng tubig. Snorkeling din. Ganun. hahah! E napagkaitan kami ng magandang panahon e. Ayokong ihampas lang ang face ko sa bato. We played Jenga afterwards while others are sleeping(?) I don't know. hahaha! Kanya kanyang pinagkaka-abalahan.


They served the best turon. Ang sarap. Naka-ilang request kami hanggang sa sila na ang nagsabing "Ah. Ma'am, actually may turon pa po pero kaso para na po yun sa ibang guest e. Mauubusan naman sila." hahaha! Nakakahiya kami noh? lol! Parang mga hindi babae. Then we ate dinner. Ang sarap din ng Malunggay soup promise. Weakness ko talaga ang mga sabaw maski sa mga karinderya. Susuko sila sakin.

"The Venue"
Well this is where the revelations took place. hahah! It started out as a simple chit chat among my roommates Carla, Saids, Rona and I then we got bored and thought of a game. My friend Rona... well... how should I describe her in a nice way na hindi niya ko ipapa-ambush later? hahahah! Peace girl. To make the story short... umabot kami sa "♫Nanay Tatay gusto kong tinapay... shang magkamali ang pipingutin ko.. 1 (clap) 1-2 (clap2x)♫".. Ganung kalala. hahah! Hindi ko na ikukwento kung bakit si Rona ang salarin. hahaha! We had so much fun and we owe it to her. 

The other girls joined us then we played 1-2-3 pass. Kung di nyo alam kung pano to laruin e hindi ko na rin sasabihin. Paki google na lang. Thank you. hihihi! Loser will have the chance to choose between Truth or Dare. Ibang klase yun. Hindi mo gugustuhing matalo promise. hahaha! Ok lang kahit mapisat na ang kamay ko. lol! To give you a sneak preview.. base sa mga ni-reveal nila, let's just say.. you wouldn't think it was just the first time we've met each other. Matutuwa ang mga chismosang kabatak ni Cristy Fermin sa dami ng HOT Issues. I love you girls! I learned a lot and I promise that everything I heard, stays there. Gusto kong maulit to.

The next day, swimming galore ulit. Perfect ang weather for snorkeling. Check out their house reef photos on Chyng's blog. On our last activity, while waiting for our boat, walang kamatayang Jenga ulit.

Kinakabahan na kami ni Saids! hahaha!

My turn! Kunwari hindi aware sa picture.
Photo sessions with Chyng. Heheh! Celebrity blogger ka na talaga..

Saya ko no? Humahalakhak talaga. hahah! ^_^

Haven't you noticed almost all of the picture were grabbed from the other girls? For the first time, nahiya akong ilabas si D10 ko sa harap ng ibang tao. hahahah! Honestly. I've always been proud of my D10. We've been together for like almost a year now and katas ng bonus yan wag ka. Pero yun... nahiya ako talaga. hahaha! Anyway, bida naman siya sa underwater e. Buti di nagtampo. Sorry baby, napaligiran tayo ng SLR e. hahaha!

P2800.00 ang damage sa accommodation per person which includes 3 buffet meals. Pwede na right?

Oh yeah.. before I forgot. May misteryosong nilalang na guest na hindi namin mawari kung babae ba or beki. Promise. Umuwi kami ng hindi natatahimik dahil hindi namin nalaman ang totoong kasarian niya. (Wag nyo kong hingan ng picture dahil walang nag-attempt na kunan siya. hahah!)

Til next trip!
