2-Day Weekend Escapade

A week has passed and I can’t help but recall what happened last weekend…

I had the chance to go home last weekend. I dunno if could really call that a chance since that was just an ordinary two-day weekend for me. But then again, I decided to visit my hometown once again.

Actually, it was the fiesta in my grandma’s place. We also have a hut in that place where my dad stays whenever he’s watching over our fishpond.

Since my time was limited, I decided to ride Supercat eventhough it would cost me much higher than the usual fare. I left the office at 4 PM and rushed to my boarding house to get the bags that I packed the night before. Unfortunately, I missed the trip. WTF! What’s worse is that I had to pay P275. Geez, I just missed the trip. Cool! Now I know how Supercat value the time and convenience of their passengers.

I had no choice ’cause Supercat doesn’t have trips anymore. BUt there’s no turning back. I was holding a bag of school supplies for my nieces. I wanted to hand them personally so I had to choose Plan B – catch a trip at 10 PM and arrive in Tacloban the next morning. Grrr…You don’t have an idea how exhausting that is! Thanks to my blogger friends who texted while I’m on my way. That eased my boredom, somehow.


After 8 long hours of travel, I finally got home! I didn’t mind the chilly ocean breeze which made me awake all night. They were all waiting for me, with warm smiles and excitement. I handed some pasalubongs. It was so pleasing to see the smiles on my pamangkins’  faces . I felt glad to see my family.

Fiesta means yummy food and overflowing drinks! After a quick bath, I gobbled some food at home. The buko salad that my mom prepared was a big plus!

I have many relatives in that place so invitations kept on coming! Woohoo! It was fun hopping through houses where food were served for nothing. And drinks, too! hehe.

I was just a bit tipsy at the end of the day so I still managed to go home (to our second house) hehe. My friends, as usual, knew what we would do when I arrive – drink! hehe.

But before that, we watched a graduation of something. I dunno how to describe that exactly. All I know is that the “tanods” and others who enrolled attended sessions of martial arts training. There I saw the trainer hacked the coconut with his hand. Waahhh…Pretty exciting, huh! 

Drinking session won’t be complete without “lousy” singing. hehe. The only videoke machine was rented for the graduation or something. So, we had no choice than to set up our own table. Of course, we had (I mean, I had) to buy our drinks. Shortly, the singing turned into dancing! Waahhh…

Time really flies when you’re having fun! It was 3:30 AM when we all went home. 

The next day, my cousin invited me to his daughter’s party – kiddie party! haha. The party was fun! But only spent 2 hours there ’cause I had to go back to Cebu…


I left our place at 5:15 PM. I also left conversations with my family and bonding moments with my friends.

Here I am again, too distant and solitary…
