So, I said yes to leaving Manila at 4:30 a.m. with no sleep and to taking public transportation. As it turned out, I also said yes to getting on four different vehicles to reach Tagaytay and totally missing the sunrise because of the amount of time it took us to get there (so that's what happens when no research is done prior to trying out something new), and then realizing later that I didn't care that things didn't pan out the way we originally wanted them to.
Nope, 'didn't care that it took us almost four hours to reach Tagaytay; 'didn't care that when we got to People's Park it was too foggy and the Taal Lake could not be seen at all; 'didn't care that we were in Tagaytay only four hours so the time it took us to travel to and from was longer than our stay. I did care though that the food we ordered at the renowned Bag of Beans wasn't worth our money (but that's another entry).
Maybe that's the beauty of travelling spontaneously. No research, no brain cells, no expectations, no disappointment. Or is it the beauty of doing things when you lack sleep? Dead brain cells, dead to the world, and in no position to care. Hey, Edgar Allan Poe and Ernest Hemingway had alcohol, we have sleep-deprivation. Right. All I ever get to when I'm sleep-deprived are incoherent utterances that do not rise to the level of being right or wrong. Like Brad Pitt.
Of course, this post won't be complete without me going off topic, so I'll tell you that while Grace and I were watching the first installment of the "The Hobbit," the screen froze about an hour and a half into the movie. Of course, it surprised everyone but because it is a five-day long movie, everyone in the cinema just considered it a welcome break, I think. We didn't hear grunts and complaints until after 10 minutes when there were no announcements and the the screen still didn't budge (yay SM Cinemas!).
I talk about "The Hobbit" because while watching it, I realized two things:
1. Hobbits hoard food as if in preparation for a zombie apocalypse, and
2. Unlike elves, we don't live forever. And it makes me a bit emo that there are so many things to see on
