Breakfast and lunch and Trudi's place. We eat chocolate banana pancakes for breakfast and mild curry with rice for lunch. And a banana or pineapple or mango juice. I absolutely love tropical juice. We definitely drank one everyday. Wait, we drank one every meal...:)
We went dive hunting. Or rather, dive shop hunting. Da wants to do open water, Dith wants to do advanced and leisure dives for me. The power trio in search of a bizarre combo! We settled at a certain sierra madre divers which is locally owned. The guy behind the counter looks like a Hacken Lee (why it sounds like hacked Lee haha) and his sister is the dive instructor for both da and dith, so basically when da's in the sea for lesson, dith waits; when dith goes into the sea, da waits. hahaha. While i go on some dive trip to Balicasag with some others.
Guy: Do you want to go and see dolphins? Take a boat out in the morning and see dolphins in the sea-
Us: (among ourselves in cantonese) Do we want to see dolphins? (dith to him) How much is it?
Guy: Very cheap! (haha of course). Only 1,500peso for all three of you.
Da: Are you sure we'll see dolphins?
Guy: Yes. You will see dolphins! In the morning! Many dolphins everyday!
Dith: Cheaper, cheaper. (hahahahaha dith the bargain queen!) (then goes a string of friendly banter)
Guy: ok. 1,200peso. Best price already.
Dith: (just for the fun of it) 1,100peso.
(We probably stayed there for almost half hour or so? While Hacken Lee watched amusedly. So did Guy's friends. It's just 1,200 and 1,100 and 1,200 and 1,100 and 1,200 and 1,100. omg.)
Finally we actually settled on 1,100peso (!) and promised we would go and see dolphins. And - we couldn't go the next morning because we had to go diving!
