On Thursday, I was innocently lazing about the house when friends of Tess, my dad's wife, came to pick her up for a friend's birthday party. They came inside to meet me, and decided I would accompany them to the party. Turns out this was a wonderful decision - the friend happened to be a wealthy owner of a bakery. If you look at the picture attached, you will see why I have decided I will never go to another birthday party with fewer than 7 cakes. It simply won't meet my standards. On the flip side, I realized that I do actually have a sugar limit (heretofore unknown). After 4 large slices of different cakes, I got dizzy and had a headache (crazy right?!).
Every true sugar addict knows the solution to this situation - drink water and eat something salty
On Friday, my dad took me, Kirsten, Kyle and Kelsey into the mountain range about 15 minutes from Angeles to see the gorgeous scenery and Aeta villages - the Aeta are the indigenous people of this region who live in the mountains. We mostly drove through, getting out once in a while to buy fruit or take pictures. However the roads are dirt, and since it's rainy season here, there were a lot of muddy areas. My dad, attempting to avoid driving through a muddy pit, actually almost drove off a hidden cliff - the back passenger wheel was completely off the road! Luckily, with the assistance of several helpful guys from the nearby village, we were able to lift the car back on the road and continue the adventure.
Yesterday, Kyle and I hiked to Mt Pinatubo, which was pretty amazing, but I'm going to write about that later because I'm tired of using my words. Night y'all!
