Lor encouraged me to make use of my camera’s panoramic shot. I was hesitant since the feature eats up the battery life like a freaking glutton. In exchange with these photos though, it was worth it.
There was an infinity pool overlooking the lake. Wanted to swim in this one but a group of guys were drinking beer on one side. I found it cool that most of the places I’ve been to in Pagadian do not require corkage fees. Heck, even alcohols weren’t banned.
I have a confession to make. I stereotype children’s pools as being dirty since I expect the kids to pee all the time. My suspicions were most of the time proven true by the fact that the waters in said pools were warmer and saltier.
Before being able to experience their 400 peso Zipline, one needed to sign a waiver first and have their blood pressure and weight taken. I sort of hated this part because afterwards, Dams never stopped teasing that I was the heaviest among the three of us. Gotta start losing those pounds. haha
And we found this cute creature which reminded me of Toothless the Night Fury from How to Train Your Dragon. One of the manongs assumed that this one escaped from a batch illegally smuggled and sold. Sad how we treat some animals, especially heartbreaking-ly cute ones like this.
When we arrived, a group of customers were about to take off. Took a picture because it’s always nice to know that you share feelings with other people. And just seeing that their feet was dangling was enough to scare the hell out of me.
Wasn’t able to take pictures of our actual Zip because the guys on the starting point was strict and I forgot I had a camera when I saw the beautiful view. At first I was really anxious and I even shouted like a sissy but all my fears were uncalled for because it was refreshing more than anything else. Lesson? Never judge something unless you have experienced it. Oh, and only Lor was in a Superman position because they had a weight limit and only those sixty kilograms and below are qualified. Boo!
My only complain (aside from the discrimination against weight haha) is that their “breaking system” hurt a freaking lot. You go through a series of woods (or steels?) high speed and your arm takes all the toll.
After Zipline, we went for a quick dip. Quick as in 45 minutes. Thank God because the sun vanished in those minutes and reappeared again when we left. hehe. Thanks to Lor for lending me her goggles. It made learning how to swim much easier. Now I want one for Christmas.
