Ah, the sweet life (or as Uno would say “the best day ever”, got it from Spongebob of course)! That’s was our experience during our Day1 and the Day2 in Misibis Bay. Our 3rd day was a little bitter though, because we all knew that sooner, this fairyland will vanish and real world will kick-in.
Typhoon “Gorio” was mean to us. He decided to give his full rage that day, putting Albay on Signal No. 2. But Misibis Bay wouldn’t claim to be “Weather Proof” for nothing, though they stopped operations for their outdoor activities (for safety reasons). There are still tons of things to actually enjoy indoors (time was the one who’s KJ).
After our filling buffet breakfast, we headed immediately to the activity center. Uno and I played a little Ping-Pong. Err, we actually pushed the ball towards each other using the racket. It was so fun to see her giggle with laughter.
When Uno got tired, I left the kiddos inside the playroom and challenge the Esposo for a billiard match. We played 2 sets of 8-balls, 2 of which I lost.hehe Divided naman kasi ang attention ko between the kids and the game. #Palusot
After that no-match billiard game (kung makapagsalita, kala mo nanalo), we went upstairs for karaoke-time. There was also a Foosball table which got the curiosity of the little girl, but I told her we will sing “Maya Song” aka Please be Careful with My Heart, so she didn’t argue. There was also a business center which was calling me, but the call of Uno to sing was louder, so it's videoke time for all of us.
We wanted to dip in our private pool after, but changed our minds.
Ang lamig kasi. I have to pack yet. Our luggage was picked-up on time
(a schedule was given to us the night before). We were picked up next. The rain was too strong that time that we have
to wrap the kids with bathroom towels and soaked our feet in an ankle deep flood
in front of the villa’s door. It was really tough because we have to hold the
umbrella with one hand, carry the kids on the other and sling our hand-carries.
That’s okay because I believe that they scheduled that to meet our flight schedule.
To my surprise we were just made to wait for almost an hour in the reception area. The van assigned to us was not there (or is it heading back to the resort from Legaspi yet). Worst when the van arrived, the rain has settled. See, sana, hindi muna kami sinundo. Sana tuyo lang kami at komportable yung mga bata sa villa since technically we’re still paid up to the 12pm - standard check-out time. I wish they’d be more sensitive next time.
It’s our last minute, useless to complain. Anyway, that was a super minor glitch considering all the VIP treatments we received from them. And as we swore, we would definitely be back at Misibis Bay (considering I haven't set my feet on their sand).
The service van was again, Super Grandia - all to ourselves. Accordingly, it’s the only type of vehicle they use as service to guests. As usual, the kuya driver made the long travel barely noticeable. He also showed us interesting fact. Apparently, there’s a part of the ocean that sea-vehicles use as resting station during storm rage. There was 1 passenger vessel when we passed that area, kuya predicts that later that day, it would be filled with vessels cautious in facing the storm.
We arrived at the Legazpi Airport on time, but our flight back to Manila was cancelled due to the storm. An adventure awaits the family anew. Extended vacation we’re ready for you. J
