My 2012 Birthday Travel Celebration

I didn’t expect I could travel on my 2012 birthday celebration. As I have mentioned in my previous post, it is very difficult for me to steal even an hour off from my chosen career. However, even how puzzling it is to think of, everything is still possible and really happened on my birthday.

I woke up this morning as early as 3:30 AM to pack up my things; just those personal handy stuff for a day-long birthday escape with friends. We immediately rushed to the NAIA terminal 3 for our early flight to Palawan. Yes! You heard it, our destination was in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Not too long after 6:00 in the morning, we were welcomed by a morning by-the-seashore breakfast with a mountainous white rice towered with a big white lit candle. The view was really breath-taking, the morning dew and the rising sun were really exhilarating.

After that sumptuous breakfast we had, since it was just a quick escape, we didn’t waste any minute so we hurriedly take off for an Underground River Cruise. It took us more than 4 hours to experience and enjoy being inside a big cave and bodies of water which I could only see on images in books and on the internet before. But the feeling of getting there and being there is enormous and expounding.

Our flight back here in my place was at 6:00 in the afternoon. While we were heading to the Palawan Airport, we passed by at several shopping stalls to have us “pasalubong” for our friends waiting for the exciting and adventurous experiences we could share. We bought stuff that could only be bought in Palawan as well as food delicacies from the place but just enough for our “pasalubong” budget. While sporting for Palawan souvenir shirts for myself, M called, greeted and woke me up from my deepest sleep. Just then I realized, I was totally in my most-relaxing sleep and those were just my dreams. He called me at 3:30 AM to wake me up and reminded me that I need to study for an exam at 8:00 AM.

Whew! But at least, even in my dreams, I was able to travel for my 2012 birthday celebration. 🙂
