Here we go again! Day 4 in the Philippines! As usual we woke up as early as possible. Mainly to make up for our sleeping galore yesterday. I was so surprised to see our breakfast all ready on the table outside our room. They prepared for us scramble eggs and rice with tea/coffee. Eating big meal of rice in the morning HAHA SO MALAYSIAN!
Then, we put on our swimming suits and ready to check out. There was a tricycle already waiting for us. It can fit all 5 of us haha what a super tricycle!
We headed to the WHALESHARK SWIMMING CENTRE DID U HEAR THAT! WHALE FRIGGIN’ SHARK!!!
It cost each of us P500 for 30 mins to spend with whale shark. There’ll be many staff there who are more than happy to help you to get on the boat. Everyone is compulsory to listen to the briefing on the safety rules. Unfortunately none of us got underwater camera (which is a MUST) if you ever went here. Come on, picture with whale shark! Who in the world doesn’t want that! But no worries as you can just rent camera there. The accompanying staff will be taking picture of you. Any pose you want lol. The thing is, you gonna depend on their staff photography skills, which in our case, was pretty sucks. Most of our pictures came out blurry. Thankfully, underwater pictures were quiet okay (facebook uploadable HAHA).
For those of you who stupidly enough not to learn swimming yet (like me), you can just wear safety jacket (although your pic won’t be as cool as those who can swim around freely). It was like 8 am, the waves were so pretty damn harsh at that time. It was FREAKIN’ unbelievable for me as I’ve never experienced that kind of waves before! I was like omfggggggg what am I doing here is this my last day on earth?!??!??! I was just gonna stay near to our boat, hanging around trying to survive. LIKE OMYGAH THERES NO WAY imma go near that huge creature. At last I just decided to go on. What’s worst can happen right? (LOL) Anyway, the view in the ocean was so unreal. VERY GORGEOUS AMAZING FANTASTICAL fish were swimming around. The water was so crystal clear I just wanna cry as I’m typing this (;_;)
I believed they actually gave us extra time as I felt like we were staying there forever hahaha. Then, we went to Tumalog Falls. What a perfect place to cool down all that whale shark intense sensation that still crippling on our body. It located just a few mins from the Whaleshark Watching. Our tricycle guy had been waiting for us. He stopped at one corner, and we had to ride motorcycle to continue our journey as the road was pretty narrow.
As we reached the place, we had to walk around 200 meters to get to the waterfalls. The road was so steep this time. It’s easier to walk with our barefoot. And finally….
WHOAAAH MAN IT WAS TOO EPIC MY BRAIN HAD A HARD TIME TO PROCESS THIS. and did I mention to you, the water was freezingly cold! ❤
We spent around 1 hour there. To our surprise, there was no changing room available there. The ones provided was too small and a lil dirty. So, on our way to back, we dropped by this place. It’s like a small resort and the staff there were kind enough to let us use their toilet for free!
Along the way, we stopped by at this one place where the view was SUPER AWESOME!
Later, we went to the bus station to go back to Cebu City. We went by bus this time coz supahhh cheap ticket! The journey didn’t take too long idk why I felt like it took forever when we headed the reverse way. We were damn hungry by the time we got to Cebu City! We dropped by this one fast food joint but I can’t remember its name (T_T).
Went back to Robinson’s House. We settled our stuff and and headed to Crown Regency Hotel and Tower. Another mind blowing action waiting for us HAHA. Before that, we stopped by money changer coz I was running out of monehh! Shockingly, all the banks are already closed. Thankfully, we found a money change in a shopping mall.
The price for each activities was not cheap though, so we decided to take package that included all activities sebab alang-alang kan..baik main semua terus ;P
We took Skywalk, Edge Coaster, and Zipline. The most horrifying one gotta be..(can’t decide). I seriously enjoyed all of them! (Didn’t expect Edge Coaster could be so scary tho). The view from
Right after we finished everything, perut pun start berkeroncong.
And then guess what?! We went to the ultimate famous La Vie Parisienne. Super fancy place. There were thousands of people by the time we arrived there lol The bread dough are prepared in France and then baked at La Vie Parisienne Cebu. So you get the real deal French Croissants for as low as 25php a piece. Thats why la so many people meh!!
What I love is they also provide garden-theme table for customers to use. So nice I tell you..
Only thing we were quite dissapointed. Their customer service was shitty as hell. Maybe the waiter just having a bad day but we had to wait a long time to order some drinks and the waiter’s face omygosh ketat giler dah maca tikus nak terberak.
We ordered too much bread apparently lol I was legit almost throw up bcoz croissant overloadddd. At the end, we tapau most of the things for our breakfast. The next day arrived, we got ready to check out. We left our things in the storage and went out to roam around a few places in Cebu City.
I still can remember the freakin’ hot weather on that day. We spend like the first hours getting lost, hop on hop off the jeepney. We got night flight but since Danielle’s flight was in the afternoon, we went to the airport together.
We saw a group of people having their convocation. What a goddamn hot ceremony with all the sun and traffic!
Fort San Pedro
Santo Niño church – supposed to be the oldest church in the Philippines
Some white building in the city
All of above place are located so near to each other. So it’s easy to just walk around and spend like a few hours there. And after all the blood and tears, we went back to the hotel, picked up our things, and chow chin chow to the airport.
Here it comes, the most ultimate worst time of my life. We were stranded at the airport for a solid 6 hours. with the fucking freezing temperature I swear my brain cell almost ruptured .Our plan was to checked in and (maybe) put our stuff there and then we gonna take a stroll around the airport area. BUT BUT BUTT there was no place provided to put our luggage 😦
Thank god Grey the angel ordered some pizza and then we spent the rest of the night literally dying. As soon as we reached Manila, we all got into our own ways. Katie and Grey got picked up by their family. Me and Laysa catch a bus to go back to Makati. and I tell you, it was definitely one hell of a night. We were having a hard time to take a taxi. Like, it almost midnight and there were still a sea of people wandering around. Yet still very stiff competition to get a taxi!!!
The next morning, we met Pauline The Santos Dimafelix omfg is this real life!?!!!?!? It was sunny ass day and I was dragging along my huge luggage to reach Jollibee where we gonna meet Pauline and holy shit why is she so gorgeous ❤
Then all of us went to the airport. I mean how sweet are they..taking me to the airport and Pauline even paid for the taxi fare *SOBS*
You know in part 1 of this post I doubt why the airport voted as the worst airport in the world, only now I realised why!! (lol) At the departure level, only passengers is allowed to go inside the airport. So if you arrive early and do not plan to check in, then you have to wait outside with your whole family (if you bring them) like under the sun with the hard as rock chair.
Then it’s time to say goodbye to Manila ;( After we bye-bye and stuff, I checked in and guess what, all passenger literally have to pay a lil bit of fee (P550). Around RM50. And I cryed hahaAfter everything settled peacefully, I managed to finally boarding the flight.
