"hey hon, when's your flight scheduled again?"
I was busy packing for my trip that afternoon when my phone beeped.
"Tuesday next week, around lunch time…why?"
Did not receive a response from him, so I continued sorting through my stuff.
Tickets checked. Accommodation checked. Planned ootd checked. Gadgets checked. Cards and money, checked.
All set for my long overdue trip. When my schedule permits, I'd go for atleast 2 weeks off the grid every year. It's been three
years since I last had a break. Gawd, I need this.
My mind wandering got interrupted when he called.
"saan ka?"
"nasa bahay ako, why?"
Then he hanged up - trait he has which irritates me all the time. Tatanungin mo tapos pag ikaw nagtanong di ka sasagutin.
Next thing I heard was a knock on my door,
"care for an ice cream, hon?"
"what are you doing here? You're supposed to be at work diba?" I asked surprised
"ehh, presentation got cancelled. Told the boss, I'd take the rest of the day off. Ilan araw na kaming harassed for that client's ad
campaign and everyone needs a break."
"kumain ka na ba? Kasi kung hindi pa, may niluto ako spaghetti jan"
"perfect timing din pala punta ko, I'm starving and I missed your spaghetti"
"ganun? spaghetti ko lang namiss mo?" biro ko.
Tinulungan ko na sya magset up dun sa harap ng tv sa may Sala con bedroom so we can eat while watching Netflix
"hey hon, kuha pa ko, ikaw?" he went for another serving total he knows his way in my apartment
Pagbalik nya, may dala pang bowl of extra sauce. I thought the sauce was for the pasta as he liked his spaghetti saucy.
"ano yan?" tanong ko
"hehehe Nakita ko sa jollijeep, sinabaw sa kanin ung spaghetti sauce. Sarap :D"
"Weird mo " sabi ko sa kanya.
"ingat ka dun ha. Sorry di ako makakasama. Naintindihan mo naman diba?"
Ngumti lang ako ng tipid. Ang totoo, I am only half sad na hindi sya makakasama. Partly, relieved na hindi sya sasama.
Sabi nila , August daw is ghost month. Period when gates of hell would open and bad spirits roam the earth.
Madaming hindi magandang mga mangyayari. Pamahiin ba. Avoid spending on big purchases kasi baka it will start jealousy
daw. Iwasan mag sign ng mga contracts - be it marriage, business the likes. Pati mga major hospital operations wag din gawin
during the month, baka hindi maging successful. Kung ano ano pang misfortune.
Even travelling is discouraged during this month. Lalo kung sa beach ka pupunta. Yung mga evil spirits daw naglipana sa dagat na
baka ikalunod mo. Don't they sound absourd?
But the second half of August seems to be the most ideal period to go on vacation, atleast for me. Meron dalawang holiday
August 21 para kay Ninoy saka August 31 for the rest of the national heroes. Bongga ni Ninoy diba? May special date. Anyway, hindi na ko naihatid ni Kevin papuntang NAIA T3. Big day sa ad agency. Tinawagan ko na lang sya na umalis na ko ng
condo. Papunta kami ng Dumaguete. Well, ako na lang nga pala. Relatively safe for female travelers and for solo travelers at that. Maaga ako dumating ng airport 8AM pa lang (hahaha takot akong maipit sa traffic at maiwan ng eroplano). Naranasan ko
ng malast call, hindi nakakatuwa yung eksena na k...

I've never been to Siargao. I heard it's beautiful there but I think the story is more beautiful. I'll wait for the next post. May sex scenes na siguro saka wag mong papatayin ang bida hahahaha
