Our first summer outing for Summer 2010 was in Babatngon, Leyte last March 27-28, 2010.
We went to Babatngon in a more or less 2-hour drive. With me were my family, cousins Jessa, Manel, Tina, and B-jo, lola, mommy yeng, and the Montano family.
We first went to see the waterfalls. However, we were very much unlucky to see the effects of El Nino. The falls was still there. But it wasn’t as large as it was supposed to be because the waters dried up. We took a lot of pictures then we had our lunch.
Then, in the afternoon, we went to the house where we would be staying at. We listened to music, played ‘Jump at Bubu’ (they were jumping over me… ^_^), and ate and Tina were in the laptop, doing their own thing.
At night, we went to eat dinner at the mayor’s house. WHOO!! hahaha!
For the second day, it was palm sunday. We attended mass in the church. However, I fainted. haha! But, it’s true! So, I had to go outside for air and in effect, we all just went home and had a hot cup of coffee. After recovering, we had snacks at the house of another relative of our host.
We went to Paruparong Bukid. It was a Butterfly Farm (and funny how the name of the place literally translates to butterfly farm). We looked at the butterflies and took pictures of the beautiful scene. There was also a place there where we could fish. Some of us just watched and enjoyed lemongrass tea, while others were training to be future fishermen. haha!
There was also a house there with beautiful interior design. We took pictures of it and this is where the camera lost battery. Unfortunately, we still had one more place to go.
This is the place where we had lunch. Bad luck, I forgot the name (well, I’m to blame for posting this 4 months later). It was a beautiful place with good ambiance. It was very clean and the food was very delicious. Even the restrooms were included in our picture-taking. haha!
We also had a boating ride in the.. lake of sorts. We saw swans and ducks and at the end of the ride, we went to a tree house where we could see a bone formed from the ground below.
After lunch, we went back to ~home sweet home~~!
