EK on Balentyms
Warning: Long post because it’s more than 12 hour’s worth of stories. Read at your own risk .
Weeks ago, some of our officemates planned to go to EK on Valentine’s Day. They extended the invitation to everyone who is single wahahaha. It’s a date for loosers daw hahaha. We were supposed to be 8 in all but 2 backed out at the last minute. Mga corny.
The final cast: Sol, Emie, Pam, Jen, Gelo, My
We opted to just rent a car so that it will be more convenient. We were able to rent Emie’s tita’s car and Sol became our official driver hehehe.
On Friday, we were all set. We will be meeting at OSMA the next day at 9:30 AM. We all agreed to just help wake each other up by 6 AM. Hehehe.
As for me, Anne and I went out on Friday night so I was expecting to have a hard time waking up . By 6 AM, Emie already sent a wake up call text message. I was still asleep that time . By 6:30, she sent another one to me. She sounded like she’s already panicking because I was not able to reply to her text right away wahahaha. Anyway, that text woke me up. Good thing because when I checked my cel, I failed to set my alarm wahahaha. I got up at 7 AM to start preparing. I texted Gelo but he was not replying. I tried calling him but I can’t get through. Maybe his phone is acting up again. It was not yet time to panic so I just decided to call him again by 7:30. Anyway, even if he wakes up that time, he will still be on time. I continued with my preparation and by 7:30, I tried calling Gelo again. This time, he answered. He’s already awake. And so is everyone else. Thank God.
By 9:40, I was already at OSMA. Sol and Emie were already there as well. A few minutes later, Gelo, then Jen arrived. Pam was late!!!! We bombarded her with missed calls and text messages hahaha. When finally, she arrived, we started our trip. That was around 10:15 already. Nasa Market-Market pa lang kami, may nakita kaming guy na may hawak na flowers. Sigwawan kami ng uyyy sa sasakyan hahaha. Dito pa lang lumalabas na pagka-loosers namin wahahha. After approximately 1 hour of travel, we stopped for gas at Petron station. We also decided to just take an early lunch there because food at EK is much more expensive. After a hearty brunch, we headed straight to EK!
On the way, we were spying on other commuters as well hahaha. We saw a couple in another car na super dikit yung girl sa bf na nagmamaneho. Duh! May iba silang kasama. Sa isang car naman, natutulog yung girl habang yung guy was driving. Na-sense ata nung guy na tinitignan naming so bigla nyang ginising yung girl by letting her face him wahahaha. Walang kasing timang na guy! Amp! Inisip naming chickboy yung guy and yung kasama nya is the legal wife hahaha. Lahat ng nakita naming pairs, ginawan namin ng kwento. Syempre may kasama nang okray yan. Mga loosers wahahaha! Yung iba naman na walang kasama, tinatag namin as loosers like us hahaha. Yung ibang may itsura, pine-pair namin kay Pam .
We reached EK at around 12 PM. After some picture taking at the entrance, we bought our tickets and went immediately to 4D. Tawang-tawa ako kina Jen and Pam kasi napapasigaw talaga sila tuwing umaangat or bumababa yung upuan hahaha. Sobrang pinipigilan ko tawa ko kasi feeling ko, kami lang yung tawa ng tawa. Yung ibang kasama naming nanonood, deadma lang. Corny nila :p. Ako nandiri sa spray of water na kunwari daw tae ng ibon hahaha. Inisip ko kasi talagang totoong tae ng ibon yun. Iwww. Hahaha.
Next was the jungle log jam. Habang nasa pila, nag-aargue na kami kung sino ang uupo sa harap hahaha. Lahat kami ayaw don eh kasi sya ung pinakamababasa wahaha. So unahan na lang nangyari. Since si Gelo ang first sa amin, sya ang umupo agad sa gitna. Ako sunod sa likod nya. No choice si Jen so sa harap na sya hehehe. Sa kabila naman, si Sol sa harap, Pam gitna and Emie likod. Alam kong may camera somewhere so I made sure na nakangiti ako don sa part nay un. Before namin marating yung highest drop, inhale-exhale na ako hahaha. Si Jen ang bida dito! Wahahaha.
Next pit stop – Anchors Away. Ayaw ko dapat sumakay eh kasi di ko nagustuhan nung first time ko. Sobrang sya yung pinaka-ayaw kong ride. Pero I was feeling adventurous so go pa rin. Mga kasama ko, gusto sa likod so likod kung likod hahaha. Si Sol, nakayang magpicture kaya may pictures pa kami habang sumisigaw hahaha. Tinatawanan ako ni Jen kasi one time na nagpeace sign ako habang nagpapapicture, kita nya nginig yung kamay ko hahaha. Susko, feeling ko pa rin kasi talaga malalaglag ako any moment hahaha. PERO! Si Pam ang panalo dito. Umiyak! Wahahaha. Literal na umiyak. At ako na katabi nya, nakuha ko pa syang tawanan ahihihi. So insensitive of me. Sorry Pam. Kaya daw sya naiyak kasi feeling daw nya, mamamatay na sya nung time na yun. After nung ride, umupo muna kami para matapos ni Pam magrelease ng takot hehehe.
Next to Anchors, pumila na kami para sa Ferris Wheel. Chillax ride naman hehehe. Nagsiksikan kaming anim sa isang car (or kung anuman tawag don). Nagkulitan lang kami dito. Si Gelo, inikot ng inikot yung car kaya hilong-hilo kami. Amp.
So don na lang kami sa Flying Fiesta. Chillax rin lang dito. After ng turn namin, wala pa naman kasi nakapila so stay put lang dapat kami for the 2nd ride kaso pinaalis kami ng attendants kasi kailangan daw namin pumila uli. Amp. Ininsist namin na bakit pa eh konti lang naman tao sa pila and kasya pa rin sila kahit nandon pa kami pero rule daw dapat pumila uli so no choice kami. Exit then pasok uli sa entrance. Amp. Seat color of the group: first ride – green, second ride – yellow.
Next on the list: Space Shuttle! Mahaba-haba pila dito. So as always, naghanap na naman kami ng mga pwedeng punain hahaha. Nung kita na namin yung platform, may nawitness ako sa isang guy rider. Super pikit sya nung start ng ride. Nung natapos yung ride, pikit pa rin sya. Nung nagstop na at babba na sila, bigla syang tumayo sa seat nya at sumigaw ng wooohoooo with matching raise of the hands bwahahaha. Ayan na…kami na! At syempre, dahil single naman kami and walang masyadong responsibilities so pwede pa rin kaming magpaka-adventurous ng todo. Pinili naming sa pinakalikod haha. Sina Sol and Emie, pinakadulo, Gelo at ako, second from last, Pam and Jen, 3rd from last. May nagpipicture taking dito. Yung isang photographer, tanungin daw ba yung isang girl kung mag-isa lang nya talaga. Pakialam ba nya hahaha. So bitter of me hihihi. Anyway, di ko alam kung san yung camera dito so di tuloy ako nakatingin amp. Si Gelo, tawang-tawa. Si Sol alam kaya ayun, mega-pose uli. Si Emie ganon din. Pero! Tignan nyo naman si Jen! Hahaha. Sigaw with all her might hahaha. Si Pam, taimtim na nagdadasal mwahahaha. Binili rin namin yung pictures namin dito. At dito lang kami nagkaroon ng group pic! Wahaha.
After ng Space Shuttle, bumalik kami sa
