as early (or should i say, as late?) as december, i was scouting for places that we could go to for our HM. i didn’t look outside of the philippines because i wanted to explore our islands first before venturing out of the country. besides, my passport’s expired already and i thought it would be wasted if i renew it and after a month or two, have it renewed again (change of status, name, etc.).
top choices were bohol and palawan. so i searched the net and we finally decided on palawan. this was a last minute decision, we decided i think 2nd week of january already, when i booked our tickets. good thing PAL had tour packages that were really affordable. Cebu Pacific had some too but I wanted to use the new airport (which wasn’t really that new), so we chose the package offered by PAL.
We could have had a better time if it wasn’t raining so hard. When we got there, we took the city tour first. But it really was raining so hard, so we didn’t enjoy it as much as I think we were supposed to.
Second day, we took the Honda Bay tour c/o the hotel that we got (Legend Palawan) — a tour of the islands/island hopping. The islands were really beautiful, but it was raining so hard that instead of having it the whole day (which was what it was normally), we cut it short to about after lunch. It was difficult to snorkel while it was raining. The water got a little blurry/murky. We were with a couple of sexy English girls in this tour. Lunch was included in the tour also. At the hotel, I kidded my hubby on why he didn’t talk with the English girls. I told him he was being anti-social again. And I actually thought his answer was cute. He said he thought I would get jealous if he did. Hahaha. (i don’t think I’m the jealous type though)
We weren’t decided on whether we would take the Underground River tour. First, I think I’m a little claustrophobic and second we really didn’t want to go touring if it was raining again. We’d rather spend the day in bed. Hehe. But the tour guide told us that a trip to Palawan wasn’t complete if we didn’t go to the Underground River. He said that there were a lot of beaches in the country and it was better to go to the Underground River than island hopping. When we got back to the hotel after our Honda Bay tour, we heard other tourists say that it was really very sunny at the Underground River. So we finally decided to go there on our third day.
The fourth day was spent shopping in the public market (prawns & tuna), for our trip back to Manila was at 1030 in the morning.
We really felt it was ‘bitin’. Mr. antuken actually wanted us to go back in the summer but I’ve used up all my leave credits.
Wana see how much fun we had?
