just last sunday, we had an extended-family outing. everybody was there, except for those who weren't. (LOL) we arrived at the venue a few minutes past 12nn. we did not make prior reservations and we were kind of expecting a lot of people who wish to have fun in the exact same venue. luckily, we didn't have to find a beach resort near ecozone. everything was set after the negotiations.
we left our bags and other stuff at condotel #18. a lot of families and groups of friends were having fun with the waters. the pools were crowded with kids and grown-ups. really.
me and my younger sister tried the zipline. aah. t'was a good experience. our first, actually. we went swimming afterwards. the entire battalion checked out the place they call 'gamezone'. some of the kids played billiards while others went bowling together with the adults and young adults. spell fun. we decided to end the day by having a bowl of hot soup at amigos y amigas.
here goes another photo set.
but more than the activities we did, the fun we had, and the food we ate,
we did not forget that last sunday was Easter -- Jesus Christ's victory over death, a celebration like no other.
not all moments in life are as clear as the wind but it does not mean that such moments can't be beautiful. appreciate the blur the way you appreciate the people around you. because, at the end of the day, those ambiguous instances will make you realize a thing or two. so why not just enjoy the vagueness and the uncertainty of events? it won't hurt.
here is another set of shots i took this noon time. i don't know much about rambutans so i included a little info from a random website.
"The rambutan, Nephelium lappaceum, is a fruit considered exotic to people outside of its native range. To people of Malaysia, Thailand, the Phillippines, Vietnam, Borneo, and other countries of this region, the rambutan is a relatively common fruit the same way an apple is common to many people in cooler climates. This may change for the rambutan over time as availability and distribution improve.
...The word "rambut" in the fruit name 'rambutan' is Malay for 'hairy,' and this refers to the spiky rind. Indeed, without the soft spines on the rind, the rambutan would resemble the lychee (or litchee) which is in the same botanical family."
before heading on set, we dropped by this resto for dinner. we had just another average dinner conversation. we also talked about the exam we took just before dinner time. ugh, that exam. what else? uhm. i must say, those guys who were singing and playing us mainstream music, while we were digesting chicken meat, were actually good. it's friday. if you know what i mean. @_@
