GREEN everywhere.......

taking a bus ride for 6 hours
could mean fun or torture
depending on which perspective
you take or who you are with.....

But if your hometown is in westernmost tip of Pangasinan, you don't have any choice but to enjoy the ride. There is no domestic airport nearby. Good thing air conditioned buses are common these days. In this case, I go home on twice a year, usually during summer vacation and Christmas break so as not to impose a lot of violence to myself. It is therefore rare for me to go home during this time of the year. But since Josh is away in BORACAY for the KOREAN harvest festival and Teresa and I don't know where to go, we decided to just go back to our beloved ANDA.

Definitely not a good time to to go on a remote place like ANDA during this time coz it usually rains in the afternoon but if you are after the view, this is definitely the best time of the year. IT"S GREEN EVERYWHERE. Aside from that, no queues, half empty buses, cold evenings and very fresh air......


Be ready to get yourself wet and muddy thought. Had to walk a few kilometers to get to our house in the other barangay. Well, can take the tricycle but we preferred to walk. Fun to get dirty sometimes.

This is the panoramic view just a few meters from our house....

looks lie a small valley. I used to sit there at night imagining things and drafting my dreams with the stars and moon above.
I can't stop TERESA from taking advantage of the view....... in my case, my pimples really formed a constellation so a far shot in a darker place would be a better strategy. Or maybe, better stay away from the camera. That would be better. kekeke
