Wakeboarding at Camsur Watersports Complex – epic!

Menu from their cafe…

This was exacty what’s on my mind the whole time I was travelling in Bicol (the only thing actually) – I must need to learn how to wake board (i had to travel miles away not knowing that shortly after my Bicol trip, Cebu will have its own wakeboarding facility at Danasan Eco Adventure Park! crazy but well, it will work on my advantage, when the time comes i will visit this place, yakang yaka ko na ang wakeboarding. lol).

4 hours of wakeboarding (for the price of 2, thanks to the bisaya trainors and my very congenial haggling talent) in photos:

Matteo Guidicelli… again?! well actually this was the first time i saw this guy, the Anawangin encounter was the 3rd, second was in Cebu.

skaterboi goes wake boarding…

wakeboards abound…

there goes the ‘kanyon’ lens again.

Mt. Mayon was somewhere out there…hiding.

getting ready… kuno. and did you notice the color blocking? haha….

great things start from floppy, slappy and crappy beginnings

will perfect that ‘angas wakeboarder’ look really soon…


All Cebuano wake board team…naks.

Ellis Ecotel – Legaspi’s premier budget hotel

Thanks to the beautiful Ellis Ecotel (see website here: http://ellisecotel.com/, my first solo trip to Bicolandia almost ended up into nothing as I almost did not want to leave the hotel but instead snuggle into its very smooth single sized bed and just hibernate for three days since the air condition was very cold. the flatscreen wallmount cable tv was also enough for me to stay put and do nothing. i also loved its ultra-modern look that involved mirrors, lots and lots of mirrors (the narcissistic in me lol). and probably the best feature of this newest budget hotel is its free WIFI access in all the rooms.

another very good facet about this budget hotel was that it is located inside a mall. it is situated on the 3rd floor of Embarcadero Mall (see website HERE) in Legaspi City. that meant it wasnt much of a struggle for me whenever i needed something such as food and stuff since i’d just go down and stroll around the mall!

Ellis Ecotel definitely spelled: ‘TUMAMBAY KA NA LANG DITO BUONG ARAW’

Ellis Ecotel almost killed my chances of exploring Bicolandia lol. i had to kick my own butt just to get up and prepare to stroll around Legaspi and Albay when I arrived. ( i went out at around 2pm already since i slept pa – i wanted to ‘try’ the bed lol)

this by the way is their single room. just check the link above for the rates.

special thanks to Chyng Reyes of http://www.chyngreyes.com, i discovered this hotel because of her.

photos overload below.

facebook agad! ...anlaki ng aircon ha...

the bed and the flatscreen cable TV

sleek design - i love it!

the see-thru shower...hmmm....

the glass cabinet - now im looking if there are any glass shoes here.

shower scene anyone?

yes, i did observe myself while sitting on that thing (sa gawing kanan nyan mirror)

asa ka pa na walang ganitong pose w/ the mirror

when Mayon did not show up

(1st part of my Bicol trip series)

My Bicol Trip has been cancelled thrice and the 4th time had to be re-booked on a much later date. thus, I have decided to FINALLY try solo travelling and have chosen Bicol as my very first solo-leisure destination (para FINALLY din, matuloy na sya).

so you can only feel my frustration and my ‘almost angry’ feeling when Mt. Mayon, the single, most beautiful,most majestic symbol of Bicolandia has figured out how to tease and mock me when she didnt show up the whole 3 days of my stay in Legaspi and Naga. such a flirt!

so these are the photos i got of her (the flirty part of her) during my whole stay in Bicol.

my arrival Dec 2 (probably the closest to being naked shot of her)

the Cagsawa Ruins (my dream of capturing a textbook like image of Mayon crashed into me because she was nowhere to be found)

a view from my Hotel Ellis Ecotel at the Embarcadero Mall in Legaspi City

a random view somewhere in Naga

a view from Daraga Church (supposedly overlooking Mayon volcano)

another random view

on my last day in Legaspi, same spot in Embarcadero

just before i boarded the plane for my departure

give it up people, she aint gonna show up….(fellow Manila bound passengers)

She was indeed a let down but that didnt mean that Bicol as a whole was.

to be continued…
