might as well

i’m so hyped up about this trip.

shopping’s almost done. all that’s left are pretty minor details and i can start packing.

i was supposed to go to cebu with a couple of friends. we were talking about leaving manila for a couple of days and just relax, forget about how crappy work is (isn’t it always?) since january.

planning for it was a lot of fun. we were so set on going to cebu. and i have been so excited ever since.

ans so we booked our tickets. but for some weird reason, things started to go downhill from there.

it started out with one of my closest friends backing out because she thought it was way out of her budget. i was like, this was a planned trip, expenses were always part of the discussions. but apparently, she’s the type who always hesitates and so, she ended up not coming. boo.

working in a call center, filing leaves is like winning a gold medal in the olympics. schedules suddenly change, you’re stuck with an unreasonable boss (come on, it’s vacation!) or you get dumped with work, it would take you days just to finish ’em off. it is easier for agents to file for leaves or PTOs. but for people like me, i’d rather compete in a decathlon. 🙂

but fortunately, i had a very understanding boss (i hope she gets to read this, haha). she approved my request. of course i had to tell her that we already had tickets, disapproving my request would be out of the question.;-)

i can’t help but feel that the whole universe is conspiring for this trip to get canceled. my leaves got approved but one of the people who was supposed to be with us, didn’t. so that’s another person off the list.

and then came on huge blow that almost made me back out: my co-conspirator slash friend found herself in a relationship. WTF. and it turns out that her new boyfriend is the possessive type. the boyfriend wanted my friend to stay in manila, even if she already had tickets. boo.

before all this, there were four of us. now, it’s just going to be me. sucks. they all flaked. after all the planning and shopping (yes, we went shopping right after we got the tickets), they’d back out.

i am still trying to make sense of their supposed reasons: no budget (right), new boyfriend (and so?) disapproved PTO (now this one i can understand). i mean after all the effort, they would just cancel? what’s up with that? and this is cebu for effin’s sake.

i mean if i only knew that they would back out, i would have gone to boracay or palawan or singapore even. but they wanted cebu, so we made plans. and i though i suck at planning.

oh well.

but i’m still going. it would be more expensive though, but what the heck, i’ll make sure i’m going to have fun. in fact, i already made plans meeting up with two (yes two) guys when i get there. teehee. 🙂

and taking pictures would be a chore. and i’m not going to bring a tripod. i’ll just ask people to take pictures of me. yes, i am a tourist.

i won’t be totally alone though. another friend would also be in cebu to celebrate her birthday. so i’d be there to crash her party. and another friend would also go there with his family. he said that if he would be showing me around.

so it’s not all that bad. 🙂

i’ll see you in cebu! yay!


i just noticed i used ‘so’ a lot in this post. 🙂

  1. Cebu will be devoid of people. 😦 I wish you can get to Bantayan though. There’d be lots of people there. BUT, there’s still lots you can do in the city naman! :p

    1. hmmm…. sounds just like manila. 😉
      but that’s just fine, i don’t like a crowded people anyway.
      my friend gave me a list of really good places to eat, so i guess i’d be doing a lot of eating in cebu. 🙂

  2. hi jedi…if you had planned it with me, i’d never back out on you..seems you have flaky friends who planned this trip with you jedi..try to choose some who you would always trust..anyways, i think you’ll have more fun on this vacation without them..

  3. how did they become your friends if I may ask?!!goodness!! your even so modest enough to not divulge the real deal about your “friends” (why they ditched you and the domino effects)..anyways maybe all along the trip was to be enjoyed by only one – or it won’t be geniune fun. ingat ka lagi. lavya!☺

    1. thanks! well, i have moved on now. they have their reasons and let’s leave it at that. 🙂
      i enjoyed my trip, and life dropped little surprises along the way.
