Over coffee =), Chyrel of http://thechyrelgomez.blogspot.com and I mentioned about "multiply.com" days. I started unknowingly "blogging" (blogging was not really a popular term back then) in 2004 at multiply. And, because I really do not know who were the people I was connected with at the start, I just don't really care what I put in it so I can be downright tactless / acidic-aly sarcastic / righteous / nonsense / showy / feeling popular. In this time of social media, it can probably be considered as oversharing / selfie / flooding / narcissism trashy at its best. But still, sighhh, I miss those days. =)
Anyhoo, though I'm considered to be oversharer / social media hog these days, I could say it was not the same of degree before. I'm actually more tamed now. I guess maybe because I got busy, my kids are now bigger and it seems not so right to be posting them all over the www, I came to know personally the used-to-be anonymous connections and everything just felt awkward. And I don't feel comfortable my "written thoughts" ending up on facebook (because I'm so feeling popular) where "sarcasm" is non-existent.
Thing is I'm really was that. So let me try to be say "hello" to that self! =) Let's start with some 101 photos.
On the barge on the way to Negros Oriental.
We made a detour to Twin Lakes. So twin lakes are 2 lakes, Lake Balinsayao and Lake Danao, separated by a hill.
Boating is P250/hour.
Going to Lake Danao
Dumaguete, before crossing to Siquijor.
At Dumaguete port while waiting for Oceanjet, Mateo took a fake rest.
Landed in Siquijor. Me and kids 1st time!!!
At Coco Grove, and that was like my Siquijor experience at a gated resort. I was etching to go out, and go for a trek but it was hard with 3 kids, and Migi got sick on the 2nd day.
Mati choreographed photo.
While waiting for our food, Mati entertained his self. He asked me to take photos of him. For some reason, every thing takes a while for food to be served. Not that I complained about it.
Migi was sick already here. It scared me a lot because his "tuli" (circumcission) did not totally heal yet at that time. And, with Migi's thin body frame, seeing him sick really looked like very sick.
The star has no fault.
Low tides always reminds me of my beach days when I was a kid in Badian. Because I could remember the very colorful sea / beach of Lambug beach back in Badian. It was full of colorful starfish, different types of sea urchins, colorful plants, and just about any sea creatures. And, I haven't seen as beautiful and lively like that.
Maybe because our seas are overused. Hello, overpopulation! I doubt if Lambug beach is still like it before.
Mark waiting for his share of the P150-mango shake which Mati thought was for free. Well, Mati thought everything is for free!

Too sexy for his shirt.
A stroll along Siliman University.
Coffee mug shot at Gabby's Bistro. I got a lot of (coffee) mug shots, I should make a post all about it! =)
