I can’t remember the day I first heard the name Jomalig Island, same as well as the first time I saw pictures of it from the internet. But after learning how raw, delicate and exquisite this island is, I knew what my heart is longing for. And that is some one fecking crazy trip to take. So did I hear spontaneous adventure onto this island? Hell yeah.
To situate you first, Jomalig (hu-ma-lig) (make sure you pronounce it CORRECTLY alright) is a pristine island that can be found off the coast to the Pacific Ocean and east of Quezon Province. It is filled with wide and long stretches of golden and white beaches, palm trees and coconut trees. Majestically lovable.
HOW TO GET THERE:

I am in the middle of life changeover as I write this blogpost because the day before my flight was my last day at Starbucks Reserve. And before I move back in to our home in Quezon City and transfer back to my original district, I found myself lonely in a lot of ways… I never thought leaving the people I always get to see everyday for 3 or almost 4 months would be this heartbreaking. Swear. Everybody knows I wasn’t the sweetest and most clingy person in the room but to tell you the truth, sepanx is getting so much real. And to pre-fame you about this, this post might be about letting go and moving forward.

I’ve been really tired and hell uninspired, sitting in front of my computer as I start to write this blog about my trip to Baler that happened 6 months ago. I know it took me so much time to document the fun because 1.) I’ve been so busy with my career and at the same time 2.) I was so down that my mind cannot concentrate. But now I’m here, trying to remember all the words that I felt in my heart when I was still happy, in Baler.

Before I start writing my adventures in Caramoan and my side trip to Albay, let me just congratulate myself and two other baristas for surviving the 3-day trip to this part of Bicol. Because some people were a little bit skeptical about us going to a 10-hour bus ride for only having 3 straight vacation leaves. Hahaha so there, don’t me.
Anyway, this is probably the easiest way to get to Caramoan.

There was one time back in March 2015 when one airline launched a piso fare. Holy cow, it was super cheap so I needed to grab it! I asked my friends if they wanted to go to Boracay sometime around September and most of them insisted to rather party Laboracay which will be on May 1st.

It’s been a while since the last time that I randomly bought a bus ticket with my favorite travel buddies. And since one of my friends was having a vacation here in the Philippines, and another friend just got back from the U.S., there was no way I can say no to adventures.

I already posted this on Facebook. But I feel like I need to put it up here. And by this time, much more detailed. So to all who have been asking and/or want to know how our Cebu trip went, here it goes:
The day before this trip, I was somewhere in Quezon City for our store’s late Christmas party. I did drink. I still wanted to drink. But I had to leave my friend’s house at 2:00am if I like to not miss my 7:00am flight. When I went home, feeling a bit tipsy and without any sleep at all, I grabbed my backpack and did a little touch up.
