Plans are meant to be broken?
Summer Vacation is time to unwind with families and friends. Of course everything should be balanced. There should be time for family, there should be time for friends. To make the get together more exciting and to avoid dull moments, Planning 101 is badly needed…but as the cliche goes, “do not plan anything because it will not happen”.Yes that is totally right! That particular line is very suited to my circle of friends. We PLANNED A LOT but due to some circumstances, goodbye plans! But i still don’t want to mention those, since we are still hoping that one day it will happen, and if that happened, i will never doubt to post it here.
Planning is organizing things, ideas, and time. It will avoid trouble, it will let you have a back-up if things messed out, but depending on your planned activities will lead you nowhere. I mean, there are times when you just want to enjoy a certain moment which is not part of what you have planned. There are also times when you are no longer interested on what you have planned. To make things simple, most of the times you just want to go with the flow. As what I always heard, most of the unplanned things always happen. Like for instance, you are having a conversation with a friend then she said “let’s watch a movie”, or “let’s hangout”, without thinking twice you replied “sure”, there you go! You will enjoy each other’s company.
You know what, sometimes, it is not about the place or time, what matters most is the people you are with.
April 26,2012, my sisterfriends and I had our tour in one of the famous places in the Philippines, and that is Intramuros in Manila. Of all the places we planned to visit, our shoes brought us here. Indeed, It is more fun in the Philippines!
We called ourselves ‘feeling turista”.LOL

Unfortunately, time was not enough to visit the museum in Fort Santiago, thus, we just rode on a “kalesa”. This is one of my simplest dreams, to ride on a kalesa, and a big thanks to them since they have fulfilled one of my dreams.
As we roamed around, we got to see old buildings. I know i don’t need to lecture you about Intramuros since all history subjects already done their part to feed your brain about certain information. Words cannot express the beauty of its surroundings,thus, I will let you peek on the photos I have captured during the kalesa tour.
This place is so COOL! There are lots of awesome teens who are into skateboarding. Forgive me, I was not able to capture since the horse was fast (put to blame : )
Manila Cathedral. This is under construction so for those who wanted to visit, sorry guys.
I just wanted to capture this part of the Manila Cathedral, and while I was scanning the photos, i got to read the significant post. I love it! and I really agree! “No to RH bill”.
Palacio Del Gobernador. This used to be the Malacanang Palace many years ago, but now, this is the COMELEC.
Of course, souvenir shops for the tourists. Forgive me again, I did not have a photo of what’s inside but just so you know, you will find there jewelry which will shock you when it comes to the price. I mean, I think it is not worth it.
Before leaving, i requested to the “kutchero” if we can have a picture together and he said yes and I got a chance to wear his hat inspired by Bruno Mars.
We decided to go inside the church and pray but unfortunately as what I have said earlier, the church is under construction. So to kill the time, sisterfriends to camwhores.
A man said “kuhanan ko kayo”, Odin was hesitant to gave Mara’s SLR because the man might snatch it, but we noticed that the man has an assistant whose taking also a photo of us, thus we let the man to capture us using Mara’s SLR. We thought he was just playing around, he told us to pose like this, like that, then upon seeing the photos, WOW! We never thought that he was able to do it for just a second or what. Then suddenly we realized, ahhhh..he is a photographer in this place that’s why he has an assistant and he was able to produce this kind of photo.
We are five right?Someone is missing. Where’s Odin? Ooops, I just want you to know that this was taken by Odin. We all love this picture. It was like we are in a commercial, thus we realized, omgsh, what commercial models are doing is no sweat!( punch me please).
Anyway, we enjoyed the day! We walked a lot but everyone was still on high because whenever we are together, the word ‘tired” is suddenly out of our vocabulary.
Planned or unplanned, as long as you are with them, anything will do.
I do not need to look elsewhere, since with them my heart is delightful, or if ever there is a chance to look somewhere else but they are not on that place, I will definitely not go, because we were used to be “package”, as one.
This tour was not planned but it turned out well. Of course, we are not taking a way the plans we made.
One day, on the right time, it will definitely happen.
