Caramoan with Family (Day 3)

April 17, 2016. Today is my mother’s actual birthday, the very reason our family went on a trip to Caramoan. As a devout Catholic, her first request was for us to visit the town proper of Caramoan to have mass in the church. The trip from the resort to the town proper was through a boat ride that took almost an hour. We didn’t get to town early enough, however, so we contented ourselves meditating in prayer inside the church.

Before leaving town, my parents made their usual rounds of souvenir shops for trinkets and other pasalubong to take back home.

The boat ride back to the resort was a rough ride against strong currents. After the turbulent trip, my mother claimed to have finished praying all mysteries of the rosary!

After lunch, my sister and I went to the resort’s beautiful infinity pool overlooking the cove and several islands, including Catanduanes province in the horizon.

Later this afternoon, we all went to a brief trip to the national park’s lighthouse, obviously atop of the park’s highest peaks, to marvel at the sunset and absorb further, in peace and tranquility, the sight of this majestic piece of paradise.

Block pre-enrolment lunch and swimming

Because we know our second semester is going to be more stressful than the first, and that we possibly wouldn’t have any other chance to enjoy carefree leisure afternoons, my law blockmates and I had a lunch and swimming / badminton party the day before registration and enrollment.

It was potluck lunch and I brought the rice. Others brought the usual pork barbecue, hotdogs, chicken pastel, softdrinks, graham cake, and chips. One of my blockmates prepared a special block awards program. It’s hilarious. After lunch, some of us went to play badminton. I had to leave ahead of everyone, though, because of some meetings in the afternoon.
