Hello dear readers! Here's a new travel post for you! This post is 2 months late. Sorry! It's been drafted weeks ago but I got too lazy and busy to edit it. Lazy Luiza. I seriously wish I could post on time! (this had to be on my New Year's Resolution list. Noted!) I have too many backlogs drafted (mostly travel posts huhu) but I just can't find the time to edit them! Can't wait for Christmas break!
Nevertheless, here's the next part of my Visayas tour last semestral break! Ugh, I feel very nostalgic looking at these photos! I miss Tacloban/Palompon! And the Elardo fambam, ugh! I miss them! :( Been praying for their safety since Pablo (the super storm) affected the Visayas region. I really wish they are all okay. Good thing it's out of the country na, yey! :)
Sooo, not to bore you guys with my blab, here are some of the photos! Enjoy! Feel free to leave some comments/questions! I'd love to read them! ;)
|"Welcome to Leyte!"|
|The famous 21.9 million-dollar, arch-shaped truss bridge, San Juanico!! This bridge connects Samar and Leyte. I wish we had more bridges like these in Manila! Cool!|
|Mandatory (yes, mandatory I say) family shot! Insert ate Loreen and Baby Keish here!!|
|Daddy's girls <3|
Since it's a two and a half hour drive from Tacloban to Palompon, we decided to stop over the Leyte Landing landmark before heading off to Palompon for Grandma's birthday! I finally got to see the famous (and VERY huge) MacArthur statue! I remember seeing this landmark on our history books back in grade school! Haha! The picture didn't do justice to the place. It's more amazing in person!!
|I never thought it was THAT huge! (Akala ko kasing laki lang ng tao hihihi)|
|With our adopted sibling, Cody! I miss that kiddo! He's soooo chubby, I think I must have pinched his chubby cheeks a lot when I saw him! Such a cutiepatootie! :3|
|Another thing I was surprised about was that I thought this statue/s were placed EXACTLY on the beach, but, obviously it wasn't. You can even take a closer look, just like what we did here!|
|Because I just had to take a picture with Lolo! Lol, I dunno why my cousins call him Lolo Douglas. Hahaha! Just for fun, I think. Obviously he's not related to us hahaha!|
|Saw a rainbow on our way to Grandma's house! Can you see it? <3|
|What I love taking pictures of when travelling: Landscapes.|
|Finally! Palompon!!! Lol, we were greeted by one of the six dogs (yes, six!!!) in our Grandma's house!|
|Lunch! (L-R) Tita Nenette, moi, ate Louise, Mom, Mommy Daday, Lola Nening and Kuya Miko.|
|Look at those crabs!!! I miss Palompon fooood! I think I gained weight while I was staying there! All we did was eat - movie marathon - eat - shot - sleep - eat - eat - eat - eat, repeat! We can't say no to food. Grandma forces us to eat, eat, eat! Lol, don't they always? Haha!|
|Fixing Lola up for her party! :)|
|Love the wig, Granny!! Random fact: I used to be sooo scared of Lola's huge glasses! |
Oh Grandma, what big eyes you have!
|Us with Lola! And tita Lando at the background! Hahaha! |
YES, THEY HAVE A TELEVISION ON THEIR DINING AREA!!
|Make your own burger!|
|Happy 83rd birthday Lola!!! :)|
|Ate Alex's homemade apple pie! This tastes like heaven! <3|
|Super spicyyy Quesadilla!! FYI guys, all these food were made and prepared by the Elardo fambam! Cool right? Even the burger patties were made by Mommy Daday!|
|Leftover pizza by the beach.|
|Booze. Of course. Not a day went by without it.|
"Hindi ka Elardong babae kung hindi ka malakas uminom." -Tita Nenette. Lolololol!
|Lola and the Pastor family's Computer cafe. Love the lighting here. Perfect for Instagram photos, no need for filter pa nga eh! Hihihi!|
|Family Guy marathon.|
|Booze... and Coke. Again. Haha!|
|Love this pillow case. <3|
"If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?"
|Back in Tacloban! I think this is their Capitol. Hehe.|
|Before our flight back to Manila. Look at Cody's face!! I miss this boy's Gangnam dance! He's just like Psy! So cute! :3 Nakakagigil his cheeks!!!|
|With my pretty cousin Ella... and my maleta. Haha! :)|
Random fact: See that portrait of Lolo and Lola hanging on the wall? My cousin, Kuya Aris, drew that using charcoal! Amazing right?
|IDs, Plane tickets, boarding pass and sunglasses! <3|
|All aboard! <3|
|Aerial view of the San Juanico Bridge!|
|Clouds! It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!!!|
|Our plane, sandwiched between two seas of clouds!!! Ahhhh, I wanna touch it! <3|
|Touch down, Manila.|
Ahhh I miss Visayas already! Can't wait to get back! Hoping for more travel adventures in 2013!
xx, Lui! ♥
