The Hobie Cat “Snapping” Experience.

Standard

This experience truly deserves a separate post from the rest of the things we did at Misibis Bay.  Not only because it was really so much fun but because this experience made an interesting turn.

So, we all decided to try the Hobie Cat Sailing on Day 2. Since, we will basically be on a catamaran with a huge sail without a motor, we are all in the mercy of the wind. And yes, we all bowed down to the skill of our sailor, Kuya Ryan.

Thus, we sailed on.

Cagsawa Church Belfry

I finally came face to face with this famous tourist spot that I have only seen in textbooks. Since what was left of the Cagsawa church is the belfry, it is somehow creepy to note that we are actually standing on the roof of a buried church.

That’s so Pinoy!

Standard

Just last weekend our Operations Unit decided to have a Summer Outing and luckily I was invited (thanks Ted!). On our way to the place we saw some stuff that are quite “interesting”…. 🙂

somewhere down the road called EDSA
