Just the way Ernest likes it! Hahaha! Cheers!

3:35PM

Pong, Ernest, Justin & Dev hit the beach to shake off the alcohol in their system. I was planning to take a photo of just the four of them but look who decided to join the fun (but not in the water) – the wifey!

Things are kinda slowing down. Guys are winding down their fun in the water. Getting ready for early dinner in a bit.

The “beach boys” have hit the shower. Excited for dinner. Heard it was gonna be steak. STEAK!!! I’m soooo looking forward to it!

Dinner at Meat Plus Cafe! Everyone’s looking forward to this. STEAK STEAK STEAK! Pong and I are having a hard time picking which big slab of meat to get inside the freezer.

7:02PM

Alas! The time has come. Glorious steak!

20131207-193300.jpg

I like mine cooked “medium”. How about you?

8:16PM

Aaaaaand it’s a wrap! As they say… all good things must come to an end. Awwww…

The time has come to part ways and head back home… But not without having a final selfie “groupie” picture to remember one another by!

Thank you, Thei, Ritz & Mauro of Nuffnang Philippines for the opportunity to share our joy with newfound friends!

Thank you, Jane, Justin, Ernest & Dev for a fun and very memorable day. I hope you guys enjoyed our company as well.

Say “hi” every now and then online, alright? Don’t be strangers now! Haha!

I’ll see you guys again real soon. Have an awesome trip back to Malaysia with great stories to tell friends and family back home about your quick adventures here in the Philippines!

Terima kasih! (Hope I said that right!)
