Things That Make Me Happy #4: Starting The Year Right

I am a week late for this post because I went on my FIRST vacation in 3 years! After so long, I was finally able to spend for myself and have a great time with my friends in Palawan. It's such an amazing place.

My friends and I went on a mini covert mission in Palawan for another friend who was going to propose to his girlfriend in Dos Palmas, Palawan. It was such an interesting adventure! All of us were booked in the same hotel so we had to hide from the girl friend on the first 2 days of our trip. I think my ninja skills went up several levels lol!

There's so much to do in Palawan, we did so many things and still I wanted to go to more places and do more things. I had experienced several 'firsts' during the trip. Well, it was my first time going to Palawan. ^_^  I tried kayaking, at first I dreaded it... but I enjoyed it a lot that I didn't want to get off the kayak! Hahaha! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of me on the kayak =_=

Anyway, before I get carried away here are the things that made me happy this week.

Dos Palmas, the location of our covert mission and our first adventure in Palawan. It was so pretty there, everywhere I looked was overwhelmingly picturesque that I was embarrassed by my skills in taking pictures.
 Our Mission objective~! We didn't really play an active role here and we were just considered the 'prop' or the surprise but it was really fun.
 Another goal of mine was to practice my photography, though I failed.. I got a single lucky shot of these bead necklaces. :)
 My friends and I went food tripping for lunch and dinner. The restaurants had very interesting interiors ^_^
 Boat Rides!!! I think I'm really a water person, I got dizzy on the plane, during our land trips but fell asleep during our 1 hour boat trip and the trip back!
The mountain that reminded me of Studio Ghibli art :) Do you see what I see? 
 More Food Trips! Eating until the restaurant closes!
Passed this beach on the way to the underground river, I don't know what beach we were in, but the place was nice and the wave were really huge but beautiful :)
 Another boat ride to the underground river. I was singing All Saint's Pure Shore in my head during the boat ride hahaha!
 Finding a miniature collection in an unexpected place ^_^
 Visiting one of the 7 wonders.
Going home ^_^

I have more things to add to this but I was to busy enjoying the moment to take pictures. I survived caving, spelunking and zip lining, I enjoyed nature... I really have a lot more to share but I don't want to keep on rambling about my vacation ^_^ Must resist the urge to ramble and go to sleep.

Good night :)


My friend posted more pictures of us during the trip, I decided to share the pictured despite how haggard I looked hahaha!

Yay for more pictures!
I'm the one wearing a cap ^__^
 It took us all a while to get all the kayaks in place, here's a picture of us before a head on collision with our friends' kayak =_=

This is inside a mountain called "Ugong Rock" when you knock on certain rocks, it echoes. The picture was taken after the difficult spelunking area, It felt like my wall climbing sessions during college.

 This was after our Underground river tour~! We're all color coordinated ^__^ Can you see the gorgeous background?

Last but not the least, here is a picture of me and my friends enjoying the boat ride going to dos palmas! Hahahaha!
