cagayan de oro adventure :-)

because of our extended stay in camiguin (blame it to the white island chill :p), we crunched all our adventures to a day. we arrived cdo 8ish, and even a spur-of-the-moment idea of seeing transformers at sm cdo, turned out to be not viable cos its mall has closed at 8pm. haaay. we decided instead a night of gastronomic delight at fiesta sa balsa sa sugbahan. (similar to dampa or seaside here in manila). this one deserves 4 stars. food is great especially the tinolang maya maya (like nilagang baka of tagalogs)! and i like how they undercooked the veggies :-) if only not for the slow service, i can give it a 5.

called it a night at 11. we need to be up the next day 5ish to be ready for the 6am pick up time of the rafting team.

barely 8ish, our adventure has started. woot woot! thanks to L we did not take the basic course but the extreme as he has advised.

extreme white water rafting course = 21 rapids = 18.5 kilometers = 1,001 action photos! woopeee!





more shots here.

and our zipline, canopy walk…geeez! i heard J & S cussing me whilst they’re on the platform 120 ft above the ground! they said it was all my idea…and that i’m crazy and all…hahah! but after the activities…all they can think of is SPECTACULAR!

    abby, i’d really want to stay if security and moolahs aren’t issues. but worry not. if im no longer here, i will pass on the baton to bes..mga batang lagro dulo go! go! go! :-) or we can explore the land down under instead. why not?! :-)
