“Hello Philippines!” we shouted as we take our first step on the land of this country. It seems like this country is full of adventures. I love adventures. We love adventures.
“Let’s go.” Tita said.
“Let’s go buddies.”
While we are on the car, tita started a conversation.
“So? What can you say?”
“I’m speechless. I mean we love the ambiance here.” Louis answered.
“That’s right buddy. You’re really great.” Zayn complimented.
“So what’s our plan buddy? Swim? Surf? Hike? Basketball? Or Football?” Louis asked. Louis has many questions. He can’t really ask one question at a time.
“My plan? Let’s eat.” I answered.
“You’re right Harry. I know you are all hungry. Our maids prepared a lot of Filipino foods in our house. You should really taste it.” Tita said excitedly.
As soon as we arrived, we hurriedly went to the kitchen. And... wow! The foods look palatable.
“I’m really hungry. Let’s eat.” Tita invited.
“The foods are delicious Tita.” I complimented.
“Yeah, what do you call this?” Louis asked.
“That is called chicken adobo.” Tita answered while pointing the food.
“Is this vegetable salad?” I don’t know what the name of this food here is but it looks like a vegetable salad.
“That’s chopseuy.” She answered. Wow! Unique name.
“So what are your plans?” she asked.
“Uhhh... No idea.” I replied.
“Do you want to try your tuxedos?”
“Great idea Tita.” Zayn complimented.
After eating, we went to a shop-“Royale Fit”. As we enter the shop, I was surprised, really surprised. It looks so magical! I’m exaggerated but that’s how I describe this place. It’s unique.
“Hi Steff.” Tita greeted.
“Hello Madam.” The girl with black and curly hair who is Steff responded.
“Oh. Sorry Madam but she’s not here.”
“What? Where is she?”
“She went to the market to buy ingredients for the cakes she will bake next week. While, her mom went to her business partner.”
“By the way, can these boys try their tuxedos? I decided they will all be the grooms men.
My partner bakes? Wow! Sounds interesting. I’m quite disappointed today not to meet her. I want to meet her already. She seems to be a mysterious one.
“Sorry Harry, she’s not here.” Tita apologized.
“No need to apologize tita.”
“The best thing to do after this is go to the beach!” Louis suggested.
“Sure. Let’s go to Boracay tomorrow.” Tita said.
Yeah! Tita is really kind. But where is that Boracay? Is that the name of the place or I mean the beach? Maybe. After the fitting, we went home. Zayn and Louis sleep. Tita went to her other friends’ houses to give invitations. Me? I am here sitting on the bench here on Tita’s garden while singing and playing with my guitar.
‘I've tried playing it cool
But when I'm looking at you
I can’t ever be brave
'Cause you make my heart race
Shot me out of the sky
You're my kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe
Something’s gotta give now
'Cause I’m dying just to make you see
That I need you here with me now
'Cause you've got that one thing
So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing.’
I really love singing especially when no one is watching me except the environment. But I’m suddenly disturbed, when I saw Louis and Zayn watching me at a corner secretly. They are like stalkers, stalking a handsome guy like me.
“You’re really good buddy!” Louis complimented with a matching clap.
“Zayn, what can you say?” Louis is so talkative.
“Great! Great!” Zayn said with a matching wink. He’s really crazy.
My buddies are really funny. They’re great. They’re good singers too, like me of course. We will have a popular band someday. I promise that. I hope we can achieve it.
“Sir, here’s your snacks.” The maid said as she puts the foods in the table near the garden we are staying. The maid is so nice to us.
“So, we will go to the beach tomorrow, are you guys excited?” Louis started another conversation.
“Yeah. I’m sure there are many girls there, sexy girls.” Zayn said. This guy is really a playboy. He still had a girlfriend in England but he still keeps on courting girls he said he loved at first sight. But as of me, I will be loyal to my girlfriend someday. I’m not going to be a playboy.
“Want to swim?” I invited.
“Sure!” Louis answered as he pushes Zayn down to the pool. I really want to swim. I also want to surf but I will just do that tomorrow on the beach because it is really impossible to surf on this pool. We swim until 7:00 in the evening. We spent 3 hours swimming. Time surely flies fast when you’re having fun. Tita arrived at the house at 7:30 while we are having our dinner. She joined us.
“How’s your day guys?” she asked.
“Great! Great!” Zayn answered. His favorite word is ‘great’ that’s why everytime you ask him, his answer would be ‘great’. I always remember one time when I asked who his girlfriend is and he answered ‘great’. He’s really crazy.
“So are you ready for tomorrow’s adventure?”
“Yes Tita.” I answered.
After eating we went to our rooms and prepared our things for tomorrow’s Philippine Adventure. I sleep early because our flight is 5:00 A.M. Then, there I went to Dreamland.
“Harry! Here is your partner. Meet Rose.” Tita said. I turn around, look at the girl and I am greatly shocked.
“Hi Harry.” She greeted.
“Hello” I responded. I want to get lost. My partner is so creepy. she looks like a witch.
“Hold her hand.” Tita instructed.
I held her hand. Her hands are soft. After few minutes, I saw a blood in my hand. I look at her, she’s smiling evilly. And...
I wake up. Thank God. It’s just a dream; I mean it’s a nightmare. That’s so scary but it’s so funny. I imagined my reaction on that nightmare. I looked at the clock and it’s already 4:00 A.M. I hurriedly went take a bath. I don’t want to be late.
“Let’s go guys.” Tita shouted from the first floor.
“Ready!” we said in chorus while walking down the stairs.
After an hour or less, we are already there. The beach is so clean and blue. This place looks like a paradise. It’s an adventurous place. We hurriedly went surfing.
“Buddies, look at that girl, she’s hot!” zany said while pointing the girl he’s talking about.
“Yeah, but my girl-to-be is hotter than her.” Louis replied.
“Your girlfriend is the hottest Zayn.” I said annoyingly.
It’s very nice to stay on this place. After surfing, we went strolling. We explore the place. It’s so good to live here, simple and adventurous place.
“You’re really good on surfing guys.” Tita complimented.
“Of course Tita.” I said with a matching wink.
We really spend the time here wisely. We tasted different kinds of delicacies. I enjoyed this Philippines adventure. And I almost forgot that the day after tomorrow is Monday-Tita’s wedding.
