While I just realized that the best investment in long trips is UNDERWEAR, Mark wanted to change our ferry schedule which was booked in advance upon his request which I thought was not practical. But then I could not argue because my reason was only based on hunch, while he’s OC like that.
I had to suck it up for 2 hours here hoping to get a chance passenger slot for an earlier schedule to Dumanggas, Iloilo because our booked sched was 4pm. And mark decided to go straight to Kalibo instead of staying overnight at Iloilo. This is what I meant by crap when things don’t go according to Mark’s plan. But hey, I’m not complaining because thankfully my personality is “i won’t mind setting aimlessly for hours and get nothing out of it because it’s a perfect time to just watch life pass me by.”
After 2 hours nothing happened; we still had no chance at being chance passenger. So we rewarded myself with best chicken inasal at Manokan Country.
Honestly, i prefer the Cebu flavor of grilled chicken which is more on the sweet side. The Bacolod style is I think more healthy because it’s on the soysauce-calamansi taste.
Once we landed in Dumanggas, Iloilo at 6pm+, we still had 160km. Thinking of it, it’s like to Badian back and forth in 1 go, which made me realized again how small Cebu is.
I guess it pays to have friends who run/bike distances as long as 250km in 1 go that the 160km in a car looks trivial.
It was one of the moments that I cannot help but thank God for the guidance. And also thanks to our runners’ grit, we arrived at Kalibo after 5 hours in the dark. But it was actually New Washington where Sampaguita resort, the place we’re staying was located.
