That sinking feeling - Maldives (Day 3)

Best Blogger Tips
Life at the beach has been a bit crazy the past few days.  On the third day, it was a total splurge of water activities.  As usual we conquered the breakfast buffet and mastered the art of binging.  The usual walk, dip and lounge completed the morning.  In the afternoon, we set sail to the heart of the ocean (Titanic?!) for the most awaited activity of all, wakeboarding!  Again, I wasn't able to pack enough guts to try it out but one of these days I will, just you wait and see. But hey, my task behind that boat was one of high importance.  I'm the official videographer and cheerleader of my three demented friends as they skid through the ocean.  Patricia and Rachell did the same, we all cheered our hearts out and made sure the girls looked good on camera, hahaha.  I shall be posting the video as soon as I have the time to do the editing (in short, good luck).

The ocean amazes me at the same time it also scares the sh*t out of me.  So I admit, I don't know how to swim yet I get this certain kind of calmness on the surface.  Shitty and secured, two opposed feelings I have whenever I submerge myself in water.  I reckon that's how I am.  I feel perfectly balanced when I'm surrounded by uncertainty.  It helps me prepare for different possibilities, sharpen my adapting skills and makes me focus on the things I can control.  The ocean is definitely  my heaven on earth.  If it's really probable that we live in a parallel universe, I'm pretty sure in that other universe that I simultaneously coexist in, I'm fearlessly swimming my way through life just the same. 

Here's life at island that day.

In my parallel universe, I would probably be doing the same, all day. =)

In the middle of that lazy afternoon, Chat and I decided to spend an hour snorkeling (dahil sa kagustuhan niyang makasama ang marine biologist).  She was so happy discovering beauty under the surface, and me I lasted minutes (lakas ng alon kaya!). =)

Our guide

We killed the rest of the afternoon in bed, took a quick shower then off the the sunset deck we went.  We were all in a rush, and it was worth it.  It was such an outstanding view.  Hilata, chika and cocktails, what a fantastic way to say goodbye to the sun.  We hit the dinner buffet after finishing our drinks (kelangan mauna talaga ang alak bago ang pagkain, hahaha).

Mahangin ba sa labas?

That was one wild night.  We got up, danced and just let it all go.  We followed every step of the traditional dance without a pinch of embarrassment.  We threw our hands in the air, forgot all our troubles and all our cares.  And it felt good, it felt so damn good.
