Summer class can be a bit harsh in College since you’ll be meeting every single day for one whole months or so. In my case though, it was different. I took ahead of time my Practicum 2 a.k.a. On the Job Training for the rest of Summer class from April 21 up to May 24 from 8:00 AM-5:00PM (every single day except sunday) just to complete the required 180 hours of duty– Yep, i’m still alive you guys! I sacrificed 6 units just to finish this OJT in a Hotel (I was assigned in the Human Resource Department) as soon as possible. And boy, I never regret waking up early and going home late because I enjoyed my Intern in the said establishment. I learned many things about how the company works and met a lot of new friends along the way. 180 hours of required duty was pretty fast if you ask me. Since, I finished OJT during summer class my 1st semester has been nothing but endless eating and sleeping. Haha! Great Job on that Miel, you’ve made the best decision associated with school ever.
Anywho, my friends share the same sentiment with summer class but in a totally different perspective. As a result, we all needed a breather from school related activities. Good thing my friend gladly offered their rest house somewhere in Surigao del Sur to have a complete relaxation plus bonding. We basically planned the whole thing right before the day we were suppose to go and since we are proudly Filipinos, the time management got delayed and delayed so imagine us being all over the place. Haha. No biggie though! That happens all the time.
My friend suggested we should travel at dawn so that we won’t waste time on long traffics along the way and we could have all the day to ourselves. Good thing though, because despite the late decampment of the group we were able to arrive in Agusan del Sur for only about 3 hours. To be honest, it was my first time visiting that part of Davao and I was giddy to see places like Panabo & Tagum. Haha! Even if we only passed by it was pretty awesome.
Touchdown Agusan del Sur at around 8 in the morning – we headed directly to my friends House to have breakfast, rest for a while and prepare ourselves for another trip to their Beach Rest House. Yes, we travelled again. 10 mins. by land and I guess an hour or so by water. The whole trip was very exhausting especially the boat ride going to the said house but when we witnessed the place, we were all in awe seeing the beautiful white house with the equally pristine water of the beach. Ahh, it was like paradise! I think I may have written so much, it’s now time for visual presentation. This post comprises of day 1 and 2 of our stay there! See the photos below to prove you all our hard work during Summer Class paid-off by visiting the Island. By the way, the Island is called Isla Noah. That’s about it. Let the photos now do the talking. Enjoy! x
After docking in the Island we had a few minutes to unload our belongings and check the beautiful place out. Everyone was really tired of the long travel. As a result we allocated this day for rest so that we could gain energy for day 2. Well, at least for some. Whilst everybody was sleeping on a gloomy afternoon me and my friends took advantage of the natures beautiful backdrop. Hence our photos below. *Will post my outfit in a separate post
It’s time to explore the Island! We were able to sleep well even though I had an embarrassing moment very early in the morning. Haha. I’m not saying. After a cup of coffee we then took the boat and hopped to another Island where we enjoyed playing the 90’s game like Patintero, Luksong Baka and the like. A complete throwback game for all of us! What a great day indeed.
Last group photo of the group! I can’t believe it’s been a month. I still have #sepanx right now. the 1 day and 1 night stay in paradise was surreal. Hoping we can get back real soon! I know, I talked too much in this post. Can you feel my excitement? haha. Island Noah, you are amazing. It is really #MoreFunInThePhilippines 🙂
