Then, the Amazing Race again began. We took a van back to Surallah. And, got in a van to General Santos. It was so hot inside and it seemed like it would still take a while before it’d be filled, so Tara and I decided to take a trike to Yellow Bus Lines station and take the bus instead.
The previous day, we paid for unlimited broadband access and we didn’t want to put it to waste. So, we told the kids that they could use the internet because we’re done with it anyway. While eating breakfast, we met Tonton, the singer of the group. Dondon and him transferred the computer because they didn’t want to bother us eating breakfast. They kept on asking, “Ate, ok lang ba talaga?” I would say, “Ok lang. Ano ba?” They said, “Baka makaistorbo sa pagkain n’yo.” I think Tara got that they were being so awkwardly shy about using the internet while we were eating that she said, “I’m not a princess!” Haha! That’s when they finally went to it.
There was no more hitch from Bontoc to Lake Sebu. We got to Manila with enough time to walk to Tara’s apartment in Scout Borromeo, repack, withdraw money from Western Union, and take a cab to the airport. We got to the airport with a few minutes to spare before boarding so I also got to withdraw money from the ATM. When a Cebu Pacific attendant saw Tara’s tattoo, he said, “Fresh na fresh pa po tattoo nyo ah!” To which Tara replied, “Huh?” The flight attendant then said, “Good morning!” Haha!
