Had a grand Subic Holiday with my teammates.
Being the control freak (that's what they call me!) that I am. I was in charge of the accomodations and the activities that we will be doing. Had the reservations for the accomodations confirmed Friday and the activities sent out to those who will be going last Thursday. Basically, all was pretty set.
Luck was not on our side since it rained pretty hard Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, we went to Ocean Adventure to see the whale and sea lion show. It was ok, not as good as the one in Sea World but nevertheless, value for the money. I would have to say that Php400 is money well spent on those shows. Quite entertaining. :) We went go karting and row boating. The go karting was great. Unfortunately I was pitted against the boys. I came in 3rd out of the 6 drivers. Not bad. :)
We also row boated. I got dripping wet, not just because of the rain but because C was actually hitting us with water. He used his paddle to put water in our rowboat. Good thing it rained pretty hard. Washing away that stagnant water by rain is a good idea.
Since it has been raining pretty hard by then, we decided to go to the Upper Mau Inns. It was recommended by one of my officemates for cheap accomodations. Cheap it is! Just Php250 per head. We stayed in a quoncet, all 12 of us. Bad thing about it is that the toilets and shower rooms are common to the other quoncets. One has to go out before you can access the showers. The girls shower room was really clean that the boys decided that they wanted to take their shower there. ;)
Sunday morning, when we woke up, it was raining pretty hard. We wanted to get started early so that we can have more things to do. But then the weather did not cooperate. We just went ahead and went to the JEST camp, had basic survival training and toured the mini zoo around the area. It was funny seeing my teammates start a fire with just bamboo. The guy who gave a demo, made it look so easy!
I did one thing that I thought I will not do. I did the zip line! Imagine me, jumping from a platform several feet above the ground. It was an exhilirating experience. :)
Will try to post pictures when I get them. :)
