Naga, Philippines

Standard

Last July 15, I went with some of my friends to Naga. We bought the tickets months (maybe even a year?) in advance, when Cebu Pacific had a super seat sale. Sandy booked a flight with another airline so she arrived on the second day.

On the first day, it was me, Hope, and Mitch. After arriving at the Naga airport, we boarded CWC’s free shuttle and checked in the Eco-village. It was the cheapest accommodation available, and since we wanted to save up, we chose that room. After settling in, we went to the CWC restaurant for lunch. Sat around and talked, waiting for the sun to mellow down a bit. Then, we signed up for wakeboarding. Since we were all beginners, we decided to go for just the one hour session. We knew we were going to be tired and in pain after that. It was a Monday, and add the fact that the bigger lake was being renovated, the only one at the beginner’s pool was this American kid. This was an advantage for us because we could keep going again and again, and we could really maximize the 1 hour we had. In the end, we were all able to stand up and we even tried to jump at some point. Also, since there weren’t a lot of people, the operators of the beginner’s pool could take pictures of us. Heehee.

After that, we went to the swimming pool to rest for a bit and to just enjoy what was left of the afternoon. Then, we took a trike and a bus to SM Naga where we had dinner. The free shuttle back to the resort didn’t come so we ended up having to take a cab back to the resort, tsk. By then, our bodies were aching so we booked a massage session with their in-house masseuse. Sooo worth it!

The next day, we hired a private van to do a city tour. First, we went to the airport to wait for Sandy, and then we went to Bob Marlin for lunch. Went to some churches and then to the falls/hot springs. Then, we checked in to Nagaland Hotel, had dinner at Geewan, coffee and dessert at Kopi Roti, and then went back to the hotel to call it a day. In between, we took lots of pictures, shared a lot of stories, and just enjoyed the day.

On the third day, they left early because they were going to Caramoan but since I had my flight back to Manila, I stayed behind. Had lunch at White Bean, which is the restaurant located in Nagaland Hotel. Their interiors are so cute! I ordered the kare-kare and it was pretty good. Then, I took the free shuttle to the airport and waited for my flight back home. Wee!
