Eight. Two. A Thousand.
Those are figures which can sum up one of the most memorable experience in Aira’s childhood. And Miam’s (Aira’s Ninang). – Okay, fine! Mine, too! ^^,
We travelled for eight (8) hours from Tanauan City, Batangas to Daet, Camarines Norte by land. Then another two-hour boat ride from Daet to the precious island – Calaguas – where we found “a thousand” happiness.
Miam got a list of 18 things she wishes to have now that she turned eighteen. Placing second in the list is Calaguas Island. I promised her I would take her there as a gift. And so we went.
