Pista'y Dayat 2017

Ditching class was definitely worth it for this!Β πŸ˜‚

One frustrating disadvantage of the academic calendar shift is that the semestral break doesn’t fall under summer season anymore. But guess what, that didn’t stop me from having my summer beach getaway with the fam this year.

After a couple of years, it is the first again that the family decided to go to the beach just like what the locals and tourists do here in town whenever this time of the year comes. Before, we used on doing this too but as time went by, for some reason, we stopped. Maybe because of the hot weather (it’s too much!) and that doing this beach getaway actually demands a lot of work. So when the family told me and my cousins that we could get to celebrate Pista’y Dayat at the beach this year, all of us got so excited! Last night they were all busy planning about today while I was busy coming up with something to convince my parents in letting me stay. πŸ˜…Β I was supposed to go back to Baguio today since I have classes tomorrow but damn it’s just so hard to leave especially in a special day like this one. Thank God, I have my titos and titas to support me. They helped me in convincing the parentals to let me stay and ditch my first class tomorrow! Hooray! 😁

It has been such a great day! I enjoyed it a lot and I have missed beaching during Pista’y Dayat. We’ll gonna do this again next year, for sure.Β πŸ’™

Here are some of the photos taken awhile ago:

We also tried boating. It was my first time and it felt like bliss when we reached that part very far from the shore. The water was blue-green!!!

Can’t Stop Falling in Love with Lingayen’s Beauty

I was too lazy the whole day and what only made me get out of the house is my craving for sightseeing. Ha! I wanna go out to roam around the beach and watch the sunset. And I’m tellin’ ya. I really love the photos that I’ve taken of my hometown. I keep on falling in love with Lingayen’s beauty.

Since it is this season for Pista’y Dayat, it is really EXTRA wonderful to visit the Capitol and the beachfront. In ordinary days, it is so beautiful to just chill here and have picnics but during Pista’y Dayat? It becomes more exciting because the ambiance is so festive.

The highlight for today at the beach are the Sandsculpting Competition and Volleybelles. Unfortunately, the moment Jessa and I arrived, the volleyball competition just ended so we didn’t have the chance to watch it. Check these sand sculptures though!

These views, however, aren’t irreplaceable. I couldn’t ask for more. I’d rather be here to witness these than to be somewhere else.

 

And the sunset was so wonderful. Sml! ❀

 

 

HAPPY AND BLESSED NEW YEAR! β€πŸŽ‰

The whole clan spent the first day of 2017 very well! We spent the entire day at the beach eating, playing, singing, and exchanging gifts!Β It is indeed a happy new year to all of us. HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM OUR FAMILY [URBANO | Chan | Dela Cruz | Kahulugan | Velasco | Villafania] TO YOURS!Β πŸ’‹

 

Summer in December πŸŒžπŸŒŠπŸ‘™

School requirements aren’t yet over but here’s the squad (Me, Iris, Tine and Pia. Sayang Gleney wasn’t with us because she has Pol Sci class) having once again one of those memorable experiences ever! After that Mount Cabuyao trip two years ago, we took it to the next level as we had our first out-of-town trip in La Union.

Touch down, San Fernando City, La Union

What we really planned was a beach outing at San Juan but we stopped and went first to San Fernando City to try and eat lunch at the Halo-Halo de Iloko Balay.

Lunch at Halo halo de Iloko Balay

We tried their Mixed Surf Seafood (something like this lol), Nilagang Malaga, and Fiesta Halo-halo (since their buko special halo-halo wasn’t available).

After eating, it took us one-jeepney ride to arrive at San Juan. We then rode a tricycle to go to ISLA Bonita Resort where we spent most of ourΒ trip. We had so much fun in the beach and in the resort as well. They have billiards there which we also tried. The place is so amazing. Too see more of it watch it hereΒ Summer in December at L.U.

IT WAS SUPER FUN!!!

I Want to Believe That It Isn’t Just an Org

Hello there! It’s been awhile since I last posted here, eh? It actually took me an entire month until I get to update my what and whereabouts again here. The month of March got me so fully-loaded not only with acads but also my org duties and family affairs and celebrations. This isn’t actually my first post today. Honestly, I wrote my entries here dated March 4th and 5th just today. I just don’t want to confuse you that’s why i put it that way but then i realized that this blog is supposed to express myself with all honesty so i guess even the date and time when I publish any of my entries Β matter. Haha! Going back, I’ll start this “OPLAN TRACKING OF DATES” (Say whaaaat?! HAHA) with two of the things that busied me the entire month: the Subol Night and the Welcome Party. So last month became a busy month for our org (Subol) because it was when we carried out our application process.

SUBOL NIGHT | March 11. This was an overnight with our applicants somewhere here in Baguio. I don’t have any picture that day because it was a very busy night and almost all of us were preoccupied with the interview. #SecDuties I didn’t had enough time the next day too because i was in a hurry. I left as soon as the last applicant was finished. I went home to Pangasinan that day. Well, as usual.Β πŸ˜‚

WELCOME PARTY | March 13. After a “supposed-to-be” one-day rest, we had our Welcome Party there at the beach in Binmaley, Pangasinan. It was an whole-day activity and before the day ended, we welcomed the new members of our family — the Batch Sanaagi! I am so proud of my buddy, Clarissa! Hihi. 😊
