Hello elbi!

Since I have only two weeks to do whatever I want (rest, unwind, go out, run errands, etc) before the start of the Phase 3 of my training, I wanted to make the most out of 14 days. The original plan was to go to Baguio with ballugers (Fae, Jov, Cza, Nicks) but we had conflicting schedules. Still, we wanted the trip to push through even if we go and leave at different dates and just meet there for a day but Emman came along and ruined everything by asking one question, “Diba Jov graduating ka?“. Filipinos have this superstitious belief that special occasions (birthday, graduation) make one more prone to accidents so the plan was called off. Since it was Emman’s fault (hehe), I tagged along with and forced him to be my tour guide to Los Banos in Laguna, more commonly referred to as “elbi” specifically the area of the University of the Philippines.

Our first stop after arriving was to grab some breakfast at Bugel’s (I don’t remember the exact name but it sounded like that) near LB Square.
