on a six-hour road trip

this year, i took this long trip to a town attracted by thousands of tourist from different countries. everyone coming to relax and see the country's crown jewel. it took me an hour flight and six-hour road trip.
on a six hour road trip, i...
1. met one lady from Cebu who was traveling solo to meet her friend who went ahead
2. finished three chapters of Paul Theroux "Ghost Train to the Eastern Star
3. had two hours of sleep along the road
4. ate lumpia and tortang talong during the stopover
5. an Australian nurse who was also traveling solo on her 40s, gave me a book of Ken Follet
6. got a discount coupon for a van trip back to its gateway

I want to travel solo someday! Pero tingin ko di ako papayagan ni hubby! Ganda ng shot, Dong!

Uy, regarding un magazine, dont worry about it anymore. I'll be leaving na din naman, I won't be able to get it. Thanks, anyway.

Basahin ko second part ng road trip na to ha? :)

from the looks of it, parang papunta ka ng Palawan -- di pa ako nakapunta jan, nasa 'tags' eh. hahahaha.

pero andaming nangyari in just six hours. according to chyng, bday trip mo daw -- swak na swak sa nurse na nagbigay ng libro. :D
