Naglilibot sa Potipot

Potipot Island, Candelaria Zambales

sunny

Matagal na naming plano to go to the beach, our first plan was La Luz in Batangas.... Reaction ko, "Ay walang thrill!"
So, everybody in the group decided to go to Anawangin, reaction ko?"yun may thrill!" lol!
We only have 1 week to plan the said itinerary, so busy surfing the net, calling out possible Bangkeros, and getting all infos that will be helpful during the trip.
And the big day came, usapan namin magkikita kami at 9pm sa Victory Liner terminal sa Cubao, late si Kimimay kasi nag taxi nga sya sa Victory Liner Kamuning naman sya binaba....hahahaha! At don lang namin nalaman na ang last trip going to San Antonio ay 6pm pala, di dapat mataranta! kelangan di malaman ni Nanay ang bagay na ito kasi kung nagkataon, di na nya pasamahin si Kimimay..The show must go on! hehehe
So change of plan, kelangang humanap ng alternative trip, let's go to Hundred Islands! yes agad ang lahat... mabilisang kilos, Myprime booked the bus ticket.... pero biglang may lumapit na sabay banat "May last trip naman papuntang San Antonio sa Caloocan, 11:45 ang alis.... TOINK! BASAG ANG TRIP! hahahaha!

At ang tamang gawin, refund! refund! refund!..... at ang sabi ng cashier, "Di ako nag rerefund nyan, punta kayo sa main office ng Victory Liner, don kayo pa refund!" ;-) Kaya wala kaming nagawa kundi ituloy ang Hundred Islands of Pangasinan....
And while on our way to Alaminos, Kimmy overheard the conductor na final destination nila ay Sta Cruz, Zambales, bumalik na naman kami sa aming dream destination na Anawangin..... but to our dismay, sobrang layo pa pala un from San Antonio, but biglang nag popped up sa makitid kong utak na ang Potipot Island ay malapit sa Sta Cruz, at doon nabuo ang plano to go to Potipot Island... We just added 94 pesos for Alaminos-Sta Cruz Route. As we arrived in Sta Cruz, hanap agad ng tricycle going to Candelaria, buti naman di mahirap kausap mga tricycle driver don, we made a deal of 220pesos for 4 people, not bad for almost 30minutes drive.

Hello Donna. I love Potipot more than Anawangin. But these two locations are worth the time and effort.
