First off… HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!!!
Three days ago I returned to Las Vegas from the Philippines and I had such a blast being back in the PI! My trip started Jan 4th- Jan 20th, and I did so much during my two week stay.
I arrived in the Philippines around… I don’t even know what time.😄 My whole body clock began to f-up right after I got off the plane. haha. My boyfriend’s family and I stayed at the Sapphire Residences in Global City which is an amazing condominium with a great view! During my first three days in the PI, I went shopping in Market Market where I picked up some great things as well as souvenirs for people back home in Vegas. Market Market was a great place to shop at though I wasn’t used to people staring at you. It’s like they know you’re a tourist or something haha
After a few days in Global City, we then took a plan to on of the neighboring Islands and then took a boat to Boracay. SUCH A MAGNIFICENT PLACE! I have never seen such a pretty beach in my life! I also have never eaten so much seafood in my life! But i love seafood! We stayed at the Best Western Tropics which is just walking distance from the beach. We ate so much food, we went swimming, and I bought neat stuff in Boracay. Definitely a must see if you ever plan in visiting the Philippines.We stayed in Boracay for about 4 to 5 days and then went back to Global city.
After getting back from Boracay, we met up with more of Christians family. We hung out with them at the condo where everyone was staying at and then after two days, I took Christian to me my family.
OMG I LOVE MY FAMILY! I have so many cousins and they all vary in age, from really young, to adult. I was so happy to see my family after so many years! When I arrived in Bacoor Cavite, the province where my family lives, I got to see all my family. Some even called off of work and school just to come see me which was very touching. They brought out the karaoke machine, some alcohol, as well as a bunch of food and candy. I also gave them two huge luggage’s worth of gifts from the U.S. which included clothes, money, hygiene supplies, more candy, money, and toys. After the celebration, we went to bed, right after watching a bunch of Japanese Horror movies haha
The next day, after breakfast and taking a shower with a bucket, my cousins and I commuted to Greenhills which is another great shopping area because of how cheap it is. I told my cousins to choose something they want and I bought it for them. After that I treated them to some ice cream and then called it a day.
The day after, I surprised my cousins by taking to them to Star City. It is a small amusment park with rides, games, and laser tag. HELLA OWNED IN LASER TAG!!!! though the guys did win against the girls still. haha We had such a blast at the amusement park! I will never forget! After the amusement park, I also took my cousins back to the condo where we all stayed. I felt like I was i the reality show Big Brother because we were all under on huge condo. lol
I took my cousins to MOA (Mall of Asia) the following day. We decided to ice skate since none of my cousins have ever been ice skating. Some of my cousins struggled whiles some got the hang of skating. We had so many funny moments and even though we had blisters on our feet, we still had such a blast! That night, we went back to the condo, watched movies, and ate a bunch of junk food haha
On my last day. I went back to Bacoor Cavite to say buy to my family. I almost cried especially when I had to say buy to my Grandma. I held back my tears because I plan to come visit again next year. Three of my cousins followed me back to the condo where they stayed with me for the last time. We went midnight swimming in the pool and then went to bed. The next morning, my uncle dropped me off at the airport and off we went back to Vegas.
So that is my whole trip! I had such an amazing time that I could never forget! I loved being with my family, going to the beach, and having such a great experience! I can’t wait to go back to the PI next year.
Here is some pictures so far! Look out for a whole album soon! ^ ^
Also, this year is a huge year for me and my sisters as well as some of my friends! We will be planning a bunch of amazing cosplays that will be debuted at Fanime and AX so keep a look out! Love you guys!!!! Have a great Year of the Dragon!
