Basically, this is the illustrative form of my Cebu trip. Ardie, the one who drew these doodles, took some different but legitimate atmosphere and additional Cebu experience to finish the artworks.

Doodle, as they say, comes along when you draw random images without any clear purpose or outcome.

And below just depicted what we have done and where we’ve gone.

2012 Trips

I assume that my pending trips are worthy enough to compensate every single peso I spent because at the very most, I might not be able to afford anything afterward. Anyhow, despite reasonable arguments, my vacations are in full swing this year.

My 2012 is made of whole bang up trip. I am now managing to involve into financial affairs that I, in the end, will surely worry. This is the thrill of vacations, I must say.

To start with, I went to Cebu last weekend. Out of resentment and desire, this trip materialized the day after I booked my solo Puerto Princesa getaway. I was told that I shouldn’t take trips alone because I might end up in an inhabitable place, or I might get lost. Blah.

Honestly, I always point out to my friends that I am no selfish bitch. Planning alone is more preferable than making plans with them that, in the end, might yield against their will, like what to do, where to go, or when to sleep.

So today, I took all the courage to confront my pay slip. If I were in the same feelings as my pay slip or wallet, I have sulked to death. I know that if it just wished to speak, it will be a big scolding thing. I will be apologetic. But so far, no words come out of it, and it doesn’t come out ahead so I still push my unthrifty spending around a little.

On March 18, I will be in Bohol. This trip is a wrong move. We should have gone to Bohol when we were still in the Cebu City. It is just the same route with a brief trip away. To tell you, I stared stupidly to the nearby islands.

By the way, I still have a lot of travels at hand. After Bohol, I booked a flight to Puerto Princesa on March 27 to 30. I will be travelling alone and that sounds reassuring and promising.

On September 9 to 12, Zeno, my office-mate, and I will have the greatest time of our life at Coron, Palawan. This tourist spot is located in the northern part of Palawan where mountains, trees, rivers, lakes, and vast ocean make you stay.

Next is Bicol-CamSur on October 11 to 14.

Philippines is a must-see place. Truly, there are many potential tourist spots in my country.

Looking ahead, as days or months draw nearer, the lone idea of my vacations and being far in a place you wished you had never been, instead in a different place that you just dreamed of visiting lessens stress and lifts the pain from being burned-out.

In order to save more money and to avoid too much spending, perhaps I might consider that I should always stay home despite late-night drinking, but I still have contingency money and I deem to drink few bottles; although, by that time, I am really quite hungry.

In that moment, I will explain, over and over, that I need to be thrifty, and by the fact that I am already lying comfortably in bed, this might be the perfect time to sleep.
