night and day out

creating moments that we could remember in the future is the best. bonding time a midst the busyness of our individual lives something that we look forward to. ruby and i had six days of free time last week and we went to panglao to spend it with sister and her husband. they are on final two weeks of construction in their hotel/resort and we want to help out any way we can. and that any-way-we-can turned out to be mopping, dusting, crawling on all fours on the floor, heavy-lifting of furnitures,wiping, sweeping...blah, blah, blah 
(confession: i am making this way harder than it was! hehe



in reality though we did some help but we had a good night and morning out. carsten and his brother treat us to a delicious dinner and drinks after.


mango shake @ 11:30pm


moon peeking though the leaves while we're sitting on the beach 












moon later at 1 am


then on the third day we head out to dumaluan beach and strategically planned to just sneak into bohol beach club without actually paying the 500php entrance fee *wink*. we planned to wake up @ 5 in the morning (take note of the word planned please), we woke up 6: 45 am and arrive at around 7 something. great. the sun is finally up and it already hurts the skin when you stay for 5 minutes (it is a wonder to me how white skinned people can stay out in the sun and baked

what else was left for us to do was walked a little bit and settled in having breakfast.





fried rice and egg and veggies


best gambas i've had in three years! yes. it can only be found here.






old wooden tables


it was low tide... and the beach was calm and quiet with only a few vacationers and not one tourist (foreigners)



this guy right here was a little nuts.while sister were fixing themselves and changing into swimming attire... he kept looking at us and grinning with his missing teeth. funny but sister did not think so. haha.

Lovely photos! I especially like the two of the moon :)

I'm really white person and just load up on the sunblock. Works ok for the most part unless you miss a spot, or don't keep reapplying which isn't fun at all.

Thanks for linking up for WW!
