Early Taste of Summer 2016.

SidebySide.summer

I always look forward to dry season, every year. Growing in a country with only two season — wet and dry, well, it seems we don’t have any choice. πŸ™‚ So, we’re entering the dry season here, we feigned it as the “summertime” because March, April and May are the hottest months. It’s also the end of school year, thus school vacation — time for students to unwind and spend time with their families.

Sadly, I’m teaching ESL and we are following Korea’s time. It is still spring there, so I guessed we’re stuck, unable to enjoy our country’s summer. πŸ˜₯

Fortunately,Β we were given a day off because they are celebrating a national holiday back in Korea. Though it was just a day, we decided to go to the beach and have our early taste of summer this year.

Salt in the air. Sand on my hair.

Since it was just a day off, we couldn’t go far away. So, we just went to the nearby Tropical Waves Resort in Liloan.

I was with these two beautiful ladies.

And of course, this man cannot afford to let the girls go alone. So our bodyguard…Ace.

It was a hot Tuesday, we’re the only people in the beach. It’s all ours. πŸ˜€

Excuse for that. That’s Louise and I trying to do cartwheel together. Turned out, we areΒ too old for it, or maybe our bodies are too heavy. 😦

Because it was only the four of us, we didn’t bring a lot of food. We had one grilled BIG fish, raw fish soaked in vinegar, raw seaweed, liempo and hanging rice.

We didn’t swim because it was too hot and Louise and I had our monthly visitor. πŸ˜›

Nonetheless, we enjoyed our day off at the beach. Hopefully, we’ll get to spend longer before summertime ends. πŸ™‚

Oh, I have a surprise for you…. After nth time of trying…

  1. “Louise and I had our monthly visitor” – well, that’s one way to put it. That’s much better than most of the expressions in Britain, so thank you for that one.

    It’s just coming into Spring over here in England, too! Spring traditionally is accompanied with lots of rain. Actually, rain is our national weather system…

    Well done on the cartwheel.
