trip to the beach, typhoon notwithstanding

this year's company outing held last May 16 proved to be a weekend of ironies.

for starters, summer wasn't supposed to end til May but no, rainy season had to start way too early this year. now, a little rain won't hurt right? except that, it did not only rain, but Cosme, with his monstrous winds had to be with us the entire time.

yes, sweeties, we were wearing jackets when we were supposed to be in sunglasses and bathing suits! a night of getting wasted around a bonfire, roasting marshmallows was replaced by a night of tongits inside the hotel room, getting wasted, having a blast nonetheless.

to make our stay even more interesting, the whole of Zambales had a blackout most of Saturday afternoon and White Rock didn't have enough generators to power our side of the hotel.

Sunday morning, the sun came out a bit and we all but run and change, not to swim, but to take photos! the beach wasn't clear because of the typhoon anyway. while the rest opted to jetski and swim, us ladies just lazed around and took pictures. and then it rained. again.

it was a little past 12 when we left the resort and to add to the list of ironies, the sun was up and the sky was blue. nice!

White Rock facadeyup, the sun was up as we left the resort

it is true when they said, it isn't the place or the things that you do that matter but the people you spend your time with. amidst the strong gusts of winds, the pouring rain, the frequent brownouts and the not-so-nice resort service, we all had a blast. after all, what could've gone wrong with a weekend spent with people who love to work hard and love to play even harder?

ps.White Rock Beach Resort's service sucks! but that's an entirely different blog entry.
