Looking for Something?

my dagupan getaway

ok. so i may be a partial social retard and a part-time bum, but i know how to chill and have fun. so to give you the lowdown on what i have been up to, i went to dagupan with ate richie and stayed over at our friend, odette's place.

that's odette on the left, ate richie on the center, and me on the right side. all green kami at di namin pinag-usapan yan. fans lang kami ni migz zubiri *lol*. odette’s brother, poix (i’m not sure about the spelling) volunteered to drive us around since it was not a busy day. anyway, we first visited ednas school and mother goose school, which i heard a lot about from my friend, maireen, who also hails from dagupan. then after that, we went to lingayen and we went to see the fighter planes and army tanks used during the world war 2. being the shutter freaks that we are, my sister and i took a lot of photos of the park and of ourselves with odette and poix. and holy macro, it rained! so we sought shelter at the shrine and there we saw more mementos of the lingayen that was. imagine, i am now in a place that my textbooks in elementary and high school used to describe. harhar. now that's something. anyway, this was one of the mementos that caught our attention. when i saw that my sister took a photo of it, i was thrilled. methinks this is a groovy shot:

cool. the makings of a hippie for the 60’s =)

anyway, we also visited the lingayen gulf and the provincial capitol of pangasinan (as seen on both sides). don't you just love the architecture and the happy color? kaloka naman dahil yung kapitolyo ng laguna, di ko pa napupuntahan! the place is closed but the guard kindly allowed us to come in and take photos since they know that we're visitors. pa-turista effect pa kami ng kapatid ko sa loob ng kapitolyo kasi todo kuha kami ng pictures. di bale na kung mukhang engot. the place is perfect for an emo shot *lol*. kidding. and in fairness, the area is sooo clean and well maintained.

after that we went to the stadium whose name i forgot. basta dun ginanap yung palarong pambansa this year. that's poix on the farthest side. cool dude, that guy. anyway, there's a lot to see in this stadium. na-feel kong magpaka-atom araullo *wink* at magbato ng javelin at shotput. pero joke lang yon. harhar. after the photo-ops and a visit to the hanging bridge, we set off back to their home. we also stopped by at panaderia antonio to buy some plato wraps, which by the way, tastes really good. i have tried a new variant other than the ham and cheese variant i used to buy before. sayang wala pang coffee bean and tea leaf dun so we can hang out and chill. gloria jean's pa lang daw ang meron. eh ok lang naman kahit wala, para tipid din *lol*. kuripot!

we went to baguio the next day since it's only 2 hours away from dagupan. nag-commute na lang kami. we explored the depths of kennon road at mukhang magandang gumawa dun ng suspense thriller na movie, lalo na dun sa lion's head. pero syempre, joke lang ulit yun! of course, camwhorism always prevails so we have a lot of shots of the scenery of kennon road. we just visited burnham park and mines view park (for souveneir shopping) because the skies are gray...mukhang uulan. true enough, it did. lucky us, we're already eating at sm baguio before the rain poured. at syet, i had altitude sickness. grr! sumakit ang ulo ko, palibhasa di ako sanay sa ganong kataas na lugar, kahit sabihin mong madalas ako sa tagaytay. iba naman kasi ang taas ng baguio sa tagaytay. altitude sickness somewhat ruined my day...pero at least, malamig don at siguradong di ka mababaskil. harhar! pa-consuelo na lang sa akin ang lamig. palibhasa maarte ako dahil ayoko sa mainit na lugar.


souveneir shot=)

at dahil mabait kami *ahem*, hindi kami nakalimot kay god. pumunta din kami sa manaoag para magdasal at magpasalamat na kahit sandali lang, nakapaglamyerda kami...maganda pala dun sa gabi kasi ang tahimik, talagang makakapagdasal ka ng maayos. at naloka ako dahil tadtad ng dominican cross ang pinto at gate ng simbahan. nung pumunta kami sa may harap, aba, may dominican cross sa gitna ng patungan ng our lady of manaoag. pagtingala ko, oops! may dominican cross pa rin. oi, high school days! di na rin ako siguro dapat magtaka, kung si st. dominic nga, nasa left side ng our lady of manaoag. so malamang mga dominicans ang in-charge sa simbahan dati. sayang wala akong picture nung mga dominican cross sa simbahan...asa simbahan kasi kaya ayokong kunan ng picture.

di naman halatang hayok kami sa pictures at talagang nag-enjoy ako...*lol*. seriously, i'd do this again while i still have a lot of time. kapag nagkatrabaho na ako, naku, goodbye chillax life na ang drama ko kasi mahirap mag-request ng off. yun lang.
