I have gone back from the 3-day educational retreat we had in Baguio. Well what can I say?
This is the farthest place I have ever been to away from home. Thus the nausea and all in the bus (imagine, 6-8 hours of time travel! T_T)
Apart from the seminars, sharings and crying stuff we had, we also imparted goodbye messages to our lovely professors and of course, the highlight was the bonding we had as a class and with friends.
Given that we are 7 in the room, all girls and crazy and happy people, the room was a mess (literally) and full of laughter! To be honest, the 3 days weren't enough because of the genuine fun you're having with your friends and technically, this is the last activity we will ever have as students and as a class thus it's bittersweet and I personally cannot help but savor each moment and hope it''ll never end.
The moment we got off the bus, we knew we were in Baguio. It actually felt we're in a different snowing-country because of the smoke that comes out from our mouths when we talk and that moment was actually a picture perfect one because everyone looked like they've gone back to being kids, being jolly and all over a shallow thing. Pardon us, it's almost everyone's first time to be there and the only problem we encountered was taking a bath. The water's freezing, at any time of the day and we're all thankful we have a roommate who thought of bringing a water boiler that alleviated the coldness. Gosh, it's indeed freezing there! T___T
The food was mighty fine and sumptuous considering they've opted for a catering service. There were countless of times we asked for refills of foods and even got to wrap them and take them to our room to eat (hee hee).
The only stuff I dread was the journey back home where it took us so long for the driver took many different shortcuts to avoid paying expensive tollgate fees which explains our hurting stomachs and heads nevertheless, this Chrysalis activity was a very fun, sulit and worth it experience! I love you, college professors, classmates! ^__^
Thank you Lord for the safe trip :)
