escaped and broke away

August 12-13 -- Bohol trip with my mom.

I needed this. I was too stuck on the same place feeling static. I wanted to get out and my prayers were answered. When my mom told me she needed someone to go with her, a smile lit up. I had 3 hours to prepare when all I actually brought was my camera, clothes, toothbrush and shades.

The Star Crafts boat. We got there about 45min. Weird how the name of the boat is similar to a computer game. haha

the little red jeep ride that greeted us 'beep beep' when we got to Bohol and went 'vroooom'

go mr. driver man, take us to anywhere.

We headed to some furniture shops where they made quality furnitures from variety of woods. We only saw a few coz the showcase room was closed. We proceeded to Garden Cafe where they make the meanest halo-halo, instead.

hello Mr. Philippine flag! Stand tall, stand proud!

mom and i. She has her glasses, I have my RayBans. *wink

halo halo from Bohol, baby! I told you they were mean. Rawwwrrr.

mama had to buy a Cowboy Hat. howdy howdy howdy!

sight seeing.. :))

went to Mdm. Herry's 73rd birthday party at her Marebes Beach Resort where we slept overnite. It was the hawaiian party of the year! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Our breakfast was pretty interesting. We were joined with Bohol's richest people. I don't know why I was even there but I enjoyed listening to the politics, show business, charity works and inside jokes. When I'm their  age, I'll achieve a lot too. I know I will.

After that we went site seeing a little more at Tubigon, Bohol. Stopped over at a cemetery place and at the Mayor's Office. Then we had lunch at a snazzy fine dining place before we went back to our boat.

my window seat as we were heading back home to Cebu. It's the march of the clouds! Don't mind the dirty windows.

I needed to be in tune with myself, spend time with my mom and I had that.
I'm feeling good right now. :)

Escape and live!
