torn between business and leisure

When we were still in Bohol, Albert told me that he has a friend in Cagayan de Oro who's inviting him to visit the place. By the way, Albert is Liza's beau and the latter was my friend from the bank where I worked before. Hindi pa man kami nakakauwi eh nagbabalak na namang gumala itong mag-jowa na to. He said we must go there by August, and I hesitantly agreed. Yes, I was hesitant because Im thinking of saving money for another business that I wanted to start up. And besides naka- quota na ko sa travel for this year. I told myself kasi na two destinations a year lang ako kung hindi, mamumulubi ako for sure. 

A couple of months after our Bohol trip, Liza texted me saying that they're gonna book a flight to Cagayan de Oro and if I wanted to come. I really wanted to go but Im torn between business and leisure. Then I decided to choose the first. Medyo on process na kasi yung bagong business hinihintay na lang namen ang result ng LOI.

Pero makulit talaga itong mag-jowa na to! Albert even tagged me on a group message about the flight details and itineraries. Yes, they were already booked but the originally planned August became September. Sobrang nang-iingit at nanunukso. But Im certain not to come. Sabi ko sa sarili ko andyan lang naman ang Cagayan de Oro pag kumita na ko sa business mapupuntahan ko rin yan.

Tuloy pa rin ang pag-convince saken ng magjowa na sumama na. Mukang wala talaga silang balak na tigilan ako hanggat hindi ako sumasama. Pwede pa daw ako humabol at magpabook na ng ticket. Hanggang sa napapayag na nga nila ako. How did they convinced me?

Free accommodation! Dun na daw kami magi-stay sa bahay ng barkada nya sa CdO. Pati transpo sagot na din ni barkada. Naisip ko malaking tipid na yun. 3,000 pesos na budget buhay na ko sa 3 days and 2 nights sa CdO. Nagkataon din naman na something happened that we need to postponed and adjust the timeline for starting the new business. Ayos, makakapagipon pa ko. But wait there's more.

Sabi ko kay Albert i-book na nya ko but he told me na wala na syang makuhang promo. Mid of July na, September 6 ang flight so malamang lamang na wala na talagang makukuhang promo. Hindi na pasok sa budget ko ang five thousand pesos na airfare. I felt sad, kung kelan naman na pwede na ko sumama saka naman wala ng makukuhang murang airfare sa mga panahon na yan. Pero hindi pa rin ako tinatantanan ni Albert, sabi nya hahanapan pa rin nya ko baka daw next month (August) may makukuha pa kaming murang fare. Ayoko ng umasa, I've already set my mind na hindi na ako makakasama. Until...

Bibitinin ko muna ang post na to kasi medyo mahaba na. Abangan ang twist kung pano ako nakasama. Marami pang pangyayari ang naganap bago ako natuloy. Sorry naman, detailed talaga ang kwento ko. Pagbigyan nyo na po ako blog-slash-diary ko naman to. *wink*

ang sobrang makulit na couple: Liza and Albert

  11. The third party ka pala. Perhaps gusto ka nilang isama dahil masayahin ka. Entertainment for the couple kumbaga. Clown? hahaha! Joke!

    Grabe ikaw na nga ang hinahabol ng opportunity ikaw pa itong nag hesitate. Ako nga hinahabol ko lahat ng opportunities but they keep on running away from me. Ayun, nagpuntahan yata lahat sa iyo! hahaha!

    Kaiingit. Kanina lang I just saw my best friend's photos. An hour ago he was in Monaco, now he's in Nice. Ako eto, kadadating sa bahay galing sa isang trabahong ewan. Sigh! niregaluhan pa ako ng boss ko na one week holiday sa October at December, di man lang ako niregaluhan ng increase sa sweldo o bonus!

    Anyway, i'm writing too much negativity here. I would like to read the follow-up to this story. I just wanna thank you because your blog is just one of those blogs that keep me smiling and keep me from killing myself. So post it as soon as possible because if i commit suicide, it's your fault. hahaha! Biro lang!
