I have been seek for five days now and I have nothing else on my mind but a very relaxing, physically stress-free vacation away from home.
You might be wondering why I made it clear to be away from home because every time I am out in school for vacation and especially when I am sick, I am not allowed to spend my vacation out of town but only at home. I still remember what my mom told my yesterday that I have to keep my feet stay in my apartment and refrain from malling, shopping, yet because the weather here in Cebu City ain’t that good and sure to cause one to get ill and feeling sick.
Today, my eagerness to have a vacation right then and now brought my imagination of spending a three-day, two-night vacation at Terra Verde Resort Orlando City.
Off course, I don’t want my imagination to be just an imagination alone. I am also a bit ambitious. So what I did, I searched over the internet some of the must-try things which every traveler or a vacationist should experience in Terra Verde Resort in Orlando City. Some of which are the arcade game room which I used to check by. The fitness and exercise gym area which I think I am needing today because of getting sick. And the last but not the least which is the very first thing that I used to inquire in a resort is the hut tub spa.
Ain’t it real relaxing to think to spend an hour or so in a hut tub which is freshly scented with aromatic oils? I guess, that really is what I am looking and wanting to have now.
Anyway, this imaginary travels and vacation of mine in Terra Verde Resort Orlando City didn’t just happen today. In fact, just yesterday, I was thinking of a lot of places to spend a vacation at. But sure thing, this actually happens when I am sick and nothing to do at home. Well then, who knows? One day, I might be blogging about my unexplainable unforgettable experience in Terra Verde Resort Orlando. Haha!
As I have said in my earlier entries, my summer vacation here in our hometown is not, indeed, a summer seasoned-vacation but a rainy one. By far, it’s definitely a cold summer as always experience.
Here in our home town, raining heavily – windy, as it is, is not an unusual scenario. Flooding in some towns in the province is always happening too. Good enough it doesn’t happened yet in our town.But the low temperature here is very remarkable that even some of the agricultural processing companies are using cast iron radiators. These materials are basically used for the heating of certain area or room usually storage rooms of agricultural products that are needing a higher temperature. Just so our province here loves the colder weather than the hot one,cast iron radiators are being utilized.
At home, we do not use cast iron radiator, off course. We usually do not use heater because we are already used to the environment. But when we do bathing, we just use a tub water heater instead.
Summer is supposed to be hot and sweaty. Isn’t it?
But here in our province, in out farm town, it’s the most opposite.

The muddy roads welcomed me when I arrived home. I haven’t even seen until now any smiles from Mr. Sunny. This is the worst summer vacation I am having here ever since I could remember.
And as one expects to any who’re used in a normal cooling temperature, working or even just moving in a cold weather around is not very conducive to such. In fact, in my more than a week of stay here, I only do eat, sleep, play over the computer, eat and then back again. However, I still didn’t get much weight so I don’t need weight loss green tea anymore though it’s a good extra fat removal drink. This is because I was confined for 24-hours in the hospital after suffering from diarrhea.
Hey, talking more about tea, my elder sister is wanting to loss weight before the school year 2011 starts. She is a librarian, she’s Didong’s mom. She has been trying a number of diet pills but those just work while the pills are taken in but when she stopped, she always get those fats back. As she said, as a librarian in a university, it doesn’t cause her to move all her body all day. That’s maybe the cause why she easily gets fat. What my mom advised her lately is to try tea drinks which my mom read and heard from her friends like Tava Tea, which is good fro losing extra fat.
Anyway, I’ll be flying back so soon in Cebu City, there, it’s too hot, a very opposite here. So maybe, Mr. Sunny will only see me there.
Didong and Didang are already 4 years old. Didong celebrated on December 1 while Didang, has just recently turned 4 on April 17.

Both kids are very enthusiastic now when talking about going to school. In fact, my sister, Bait, has bought a lunch tote and kid duffle bags for the kids. She also provided the kids with writing pens and papers inside a Stephen Johnson toddler backpacks. Didong has a Naruto-design on it while Didang has Dora design too.
Last February 2011, my mom was sharing her plans to send the kids to summer classes or summer camping. I told her that if I could come home, I’ll be attending with them. So my mom waited until I got home.
However, so sad to think that when I got home, I suffered from different illnesses that even caused me to be confined. The preplanned summer classes for the kids were not pushed thru. I don’t know what the plans of my sister, brother and mom as of this time.
Have you noticed Google‘s homepage today? It has Charlie Chaplin’s video clip on it because today is the 122nd birthday of Charlie Chaplin.
By the way, do you know Charlie Chaplin? He is best-known in composing silent films. He is an English comic actor and a film director too.
I have known Charlie Chaplin during my high school years in social sciences subjects. I remember our social science teacher used to let us, his students, watch Charlie Chaplin’s movies and films in our classrooms. Sometimes, he let his students borrow his bundles of Charlie Chaplin original DVDs for us to watch the films in our own houses. In fact, once, I and some of my classmates watched one film of Charlie Chaplin in a patio furniture in our old house in the province. That was a very reminiscing-worth moments for a teenager. Yay! However, when we moved into our new house, my mom gave that patio furniture to one of our farm workers. Not too bad, though. Nonetheless, using patio furniture at home is very relaxing and comfortable.
I arrived here in our hometown last Sunday. It feels so good after all the stresses in medical school. Yay!
The last days since Sunday had me to only sleep, eat, sleep and eat. I don’t even do things in the kitchen. I guess, from the few days passed, I already gained weight. Oh well, as what my mom said, I just need to have these reward of taking rest from months of stresses in school. Great idea from mom, that was!
Anyway, at home, there’s no much changes I’ve noticed but only my old computer table which is now used as TV stand inside Didong’s room. We already are having 3 computer tables at home, 2 of which are being utilized for desktop computers and the third one is for the TV and DVD set players.
The TV and DVD sets are all mine; bought when I was in college. It’s Didong who’s using those now. But I still am wondering why my elder sister used my computer table as such, though it’s not being used as for it’s intended uses. TV stands are just very cheap and more looking good than the above computer table. I haven’t asked my sister yet about this. I’d rather wait, maybe, until my sister shared some things on me.
As of this time, I am enjoying and feeling relax as to my stay here at home.
Lately, M was thinking of having a vacation again but that would be for next year. Same as last month, that would be a 15-day vacation. I remember, he asked me once if it would be alright with me if we could have it out of the Philippines. For me, yes. But, I guess, for now, it would still be impossible since for next year, my being a medical student would be more hectic than this year. Our classes will start by May 2011. He further asked if we could have even just 5 to 7 days together abroad. I was hesitant to say either yes or no. But with my excitement, I didn’t tell him that I also checked some good place over the internet where to have a vacation with hubby.
One Filipina friend of mine in Australia shared that she and her Aussie hubby once had a vacation in South California, specifically in Myrtle Beach Resort for 3 days and 2 nights. She even showed me some of there photos. Upon looking at it, I was kind’a interested though for me, such impossible yet to be there, so she was also sharing to me how her hubby had the Myrtle Beach hotel reservations done. Since her husband has been used to traveling abroad, my friend is of no worries, as she said, when it comes to those things ‘coz she’s sure enough that her hubby knew what she usually wants when it comes to vacations. And the Myrtle Beach Accommodations, according to her, are worth staying and coming back.
After checking it online, the http://www.seasidemb.com/, is indeed a great place to have a date. But I do not know when can I be there.
A friend of mine once said it’s not good nor bad to try online cash advance. She, herself, can prove the goodness it has brought to her. For instance, she has had bad credit records before, but when she opted to apply for online payday loans, it was still approved. So no worries for bad credit history. Aside from that, since the need of cash is very immediate, she was able to hand in the cash in just 24 hours right after her application.
These are just some of the bundles of information she shared to me since I’m living broke now. I mean, I can’t go for a vacay anymore with my own money. I need to wait for my pay-outs online just to savor the last days of summer 2010.
Hopefully, I could have clear idea before the day ends whether to go for cash or credit for vacation.
Since my summer vacation here in our province is not that good because of rotating brown out and very wet and cold weather. One fair day, my sister asked me to have some good times in our farm because it was also the last day of harvesting. There, we brought Didong, our nephew, our cousin, Maggie and our tita, my mum’s cousin, Basil.
Personally, I had a great time spending even less than an hour there because after more than a year, it was only that day that I got to visit our farm again. Haha. With my best eco-fashioned gear, I got to get rid of mosquitoes and leeches in the farm and from the little heat of the sun. In fact, it’s not just me having the women fashion trendy farming gear there, but also my sister and cousin actually. Hehe.
With my cousin, Maggie. At the back are some palm oil trees.

After taking some good photos there, LOL, we went home. I just realized that what I was wearing made me slender a bit. Hehe. It’s indeed good to look at those cool figure flattering clothes just like what I wore. See? I look so slim.
