Leaving at promptly 7 AM in the morning, the trip was already filled with memories as people started to sing (including the singing driver), take pictures, eat, and sleep. By the time the bus reached Anilao, everyone felt very energized since the vast ocean can already be seen.
Upon reaching Eagle Point Resort, everyone had to rush to their assigned rooms, place down their bags and started preparing their swim wears up since a boat ride is already waiting for the visitors to go to Sepoc Beach. The Japanese students were so excited to discover the lovely beach in Anilao as expressed by their shouting “U-MI! U-MI!”, in English “Beach! Beach!” Every Filipino would just really feel very pleased on how Philippine beaches are being appreciated by people from other countries. The Japanese students hastenly jumped into the clear water, snorkeling and swimming with the fishes. Although many people got stung by sea urchins, getting pricked was never a hindrance for the students keep on swimming and having fun with everyone! The day ended fast as the tides were getting lower as time progressed so everyone had to pack up their things and go back to the resort. By reaching Eagle Point resort, the numerous amenities covered up the time needed more at the beach. Together, everyone spent the whole afternoon swimming at the pool, taking underwater shots, jump shots, and feeling the stress relieving cool breeze while looking at the heart warming sunset!
Upon leaving Anilao Batangas, everybody was tired but traces of smiles on their faces showed a sign of contentment. Memories have been seeded on every mind of the studfents who ventured to Anilao Batangas. Many of these memories, may, one day be forgotten but one thing is for sure and will all stay in everyone’s mind and heart, WE ALL HAD FUN!
