Closing Time

It’s that time of the year again. I’ve reached the bandwidth limit of image uploads for this blog and I can’t be arsed to subscribe for a paid blog, so I’m moving on. Come find me at astrojeepney2.wordpress.com. I might need some time to set up shop over there, but that’s where the party will be at. Believe.

Some parting shots to end the year then!

The Far East

This post is late by around five months. Life, uhhh, finds a way. To get ahead of me, I mean. Anyway, where is it written that posts should be instantaneous? I’d like to think of these photos as pickled snaps.

Late last year, my best girl friend rings me up in the dead of night asking if she was going to book a trip to Japan because there was a promo on flights and time was of the essence. I vaguely remember answering in the affirmative. Woke up the next morning, thought I dreamt the whole thing up until she demanded I pay my half of the airfare and hotel reservation. Come March, we were in Japan.

Unreal

A friend reminded me yesterday that we are now entering the second month of the year. Late last year, we put our heads together to come up with a grand adventure for 2015. That adventure’s around the corner now, in a month and a half’s time, and it’s about to catch me unawares.

Anyway, last December, we went on a road trip and spent Christmas around some islands in Zambales.

Pt 3: Beyond the Sea

It should have meant something when we spotted the fog. It was maybe around noon. We took the car for our final climb up a winding near-vertical road that hugged the mountains. We were nearing a little-known beach resort in the less-populated area of Pagudpud. High noon with a fog rolling in, and cold rain sweeping through the coast.

Christmas by the beach, my dad said. It was freezing.
