A Visit to Lucena

It was a plan hatched over bottles of downed beer. As usual, the agreement was "all for one, one for all." No one was allowed to break the covenant. Or else, the penalty is Five Thousand Pesos per head.

One of the gang’s members claimed to have an uncle in Lucena. And based on drunken accounts of a previous experience, there is plenty of seafood in the man’s table. We initially salivated over the prospects but everybody later dismissed it as just another tale. Thus the dare: we will go a-visiting during one of the forthcoming long weekends.

The first Saturday turned out to be stormy. We had no choice but to postpone the excursion. But the next one (last Saturday) had to be it, come hell or high waters.

And so we did. Without regrets, I must say. We had the beach all to ourselves, pigging out on the freshest of seafoods. Of course, the ever-reliable videoke was there when the spirits settled in. What more could we ask for?
Oh yes. I also had fun taking pictures. Not as good as other bloggers could have done it, but what the heck! I took them and I like them. :-)

Sarap nga mag beach e. Kahit pa hindi maligo. Kotse ko ba yan? Hindi e. Kalesa lang ang kaya ko, he he.

I guess it is really true that people tell the truth when they are drunk. Hehe. Nice photos, by the way...

Gypsy: May tama ka! He he. Dapat nga, lahat ng witness sa korte painumin muna para magsabi ng totoo!

Sunog! sunog! =)

Parang nasusunog ang kotse. Is that the optical illusion that you wanted to capture when you took the shot?

Ah, the beach...............................

Tutubi: Balak ko nga sana magpaiwan dahil nanghinayang ako sa pagod pagpunta, pero di ako pinayagan ng tropa.

Gina: Naiinggit kasi ako sa kotse ng kaibigan ko kaya binalak kong sunugin. :-)

Rochelle: Thanks. I hope to take better pictures next time.

Slim Whale: Come on. You can always hit the beach any time you please. Takas! :-)

Intsik: I guess the place has recovered. I didn't see any remnant of the flash floods.

Thank you all guys!
