At a time when most people were still snoring, the Sabitski family herded themselves in two automobiles and made the long drive to Famy Laguna.
I personally had my apprehensions because I hate waking up before the sun rises and I've hated long drives after going to God-awful Matabungkay). In my book, if you wake me up early and force me to go on a long drive, there'd better be something fabulous at the end of such ordeal. And surprisingly enough, there was.
The place was verdant, lush and most of all, quiet. There was a river and the water was just perfect. The food was cheap (longsilog for 25p and fresh buko for 7p!) and there were several huts where you can drag your weary city-infested body for a much needed snooze. Of course, there was a karaoke machine but unlike in previous "vacations" the karaoke machine added to the unique charm of the place. I fancied myself to be in a music video, thinking about my beloved while "One Moment in Time" played in the background.
All in all, it was one for the books and definitely a nice way to cap off the summer.
