Runway Tagay... or should I say Roadtrip Tagay??

It was another adventure of me and my car, Randy, last weekend.

My friend, Akihiro, invited me last two weeks ago to tag along with him and his friends on their planned trip to the beach. Of course, I was a willing participant once they mentioned roadtrip and beach together in a sentence.

We planned on meeting in Makati @4am Saturday morning. I was prepared to spend Friday night resting and preparing for the trip but to no avail.

My other friend, Ricky, texted and asked me if I want to go to a bar in Ortigas. He knows someone from the inside that included us in the guest list. That's why I found myself, Ricky and his housemate, Ken, drinking and dancing Friday night in a crowded "O Bar" in Ortigas. It was only a little bit later that I found out that the Liquor Ban would start on Sunday, that's why the gay guys in the metro were so intent in gorging themselves with alcohol. Hehehe.

Anyway, after a couple of vodka tonic, I looked at my watch and it was already Saturday morning @ 5am. Akihiro was definitely pissed when his cab pulled in front of the bar. I texted him that I would just hang out at the bar until our meeting time earlier that night. I did not know that the inside of the club did not have any cellphone signal and that he has been calling me since 4am.

Well, I just used my charm to make him forget my transgression and fortunately, with a little bit of smile and profuse apologies, it was all water under the bridge. We picked up 3 more of his friends to carpool with us in Cubao and we were on our way.

By almost 9:30am, we arrived at the beach and boy!!!! It was RELAXING!!!

I still don't have my own camera so I just browsed the internet to give you a glimpse of what I saw. You can check this link for the pictures... PUNDAQUIT BEACH.

It was already Sunday afternoon that we decided to head back to Manila, but not before we pass by my personal favorite Taco Shop in Olonggapo City (Near Subic Freeport).

All in all, it was a great weekend. I wonder where our (me and my car) next adventure would be. Who would I be with?
