woohoo. we had our field trip yesterday and today there's noooo school :)
the trip was really long, and probably one of the best one's our batch has ever had. really. and even if where we went wasn't as much of a stuff-to-see place as it was a stuff-to-do place, i guess that's what's made it the best :D okay, as usual there was homework after, but we didn't have to lag it around as we usually would have been forced to- considering the activities we did, it wouldn't have been possible:
first we had to make a "cheer" for our group, Diyakamawatan (correct spelling? o_O) and haha it was so malabo (itaas ang kamay sa - HIMPAPAWID!) then we had a.m. snacks, then off we went to rappel.
we waited in line for the longest time, but it was well worth it. it was abt 40 ft, and yeah, we were all hell tired after that :P
i was supposed to go to the other "outdoor activities" pero apple/jess/aish wanted me to wait for them, and i was desperate to rest anyway so yeah, i just waited. :) i was with sila alex, kat, larisky, apple, jess, aish, mica and colleen on the way back (yes we were THAT konti- the people usually travel in groups of 20 or so) and even if we were all hungry, muddy, wet and....alone in that third-world jungle it was ayt. we had lunch together. and it was either it really WAS or i was just too starved but the food was REALLY good. sobra. steamed veg, brown rice, lemongrass juice and "shicken"- and all of us had seconds(yum).
after that we had to back to our real groups again (aww, byebye guys.) then we again had outdoor activities- first the game with the holed basin (i got wet in that one) then the "catch the piglet game"(which is exactly what it is. it was so gory, whoops) then after that, the mud crawling( sick. there were tadpoles in the watered-down mud, and i'm not lying) then finally the rope obstacle course. that was hella fun. ropes to cross, things to swing from, stuff to try not to get hit with and water to fall in ala tomb raider. i kept falling (die swinging sacks of rice, die >_<) haha!
after we had the last game, the spiderweb one (where you needed flexibility or die :P) we were all mud-less after swimming in the "river", then we got dirty again after this game :D
oh well. off to the showers
then p.m. snacks
then me and amica go off to the souvenir shop (got anklets! :)
then we go home
this trip was fun. it started out sucky (in a shrewd twist of events, i was bus-partner less) but ended up great (food, rapelling, water games, and ending up with a partner who's fun (who lost her partner in a shrewd twist of events too. ) ) that day was fun, and even if i can't really move today because i'm so sore, it rock'd. diyakamawatan!
