|so i went back to dumaguete, but this time, it’s all business and slight pleasure and tons of pressure. going back to pay some visits and more importantly, to settle some accounts there. ironically, only mine was left on-hold. anyway, trip was hell uncomfortable! left at around 10:30 pm and was only able to buy a ticket when i was on the boat already. but i was thankful that i was still permitted to enter, the boat’s fully-booked and packed with sillimanians coz of an educational trip they held here. i didn’t have time though, to thoroughly search the vicinity since i wanted to get some shut-eyes but saw a few acquaintances. tried to find a vacant bunk so i could sleep asap but got lost in the process. also kept on asking some service-personnel but they left me to no avail. good if they talked to me in a decent manner, but they didn’t even bother to look for an empty space. and to think their shirts were printed with the word STEWARD at the back. tsk, tsk. that’s okay, i’m a patient person. sat till 2am and when i finally got a bed, with no help from the “stewards”, i immediately slept. got 2 hours sleep.
arrived at 4am, a bit too early than expected. went to find a place to stop so i could kill the time. the only place to go that’s open. Dunkin Donuts. sheesh. after, went looking for an internet rental since i wasn’t able to catch up on some pending comments. 6:30, visited a friend and surprised her for a while. wasn’t able to chit-chat since it was a monday and that i only had that day and it’s back to home for me. for i also had classes, or on a stresser no te, midterm exams on that day to the next. oh well, sacrifice something precious to gain something else.
to summarize what happened, i was able to settle my sibling’s accounts but the TOR (transcript of records) weren’t met coz the principals of the respective departments weren’t there. damn. anyway, since i had a little more time than planned. went with some friends again. ate at Hayahay… had some pizza and my braver mates donned it with this hot HOT chili sauce. the name’s DAVE’S GOURMET ULTIMATE INSANITY HOT SAUCE.
Scoville Units: 90,000
Ingredients include: Red habaneros, tomato sauce, hot pepper extract, onions, red chiles, garlic, cane vinegar, vegetable oil, xanthan gum and sauces.
it took quite some time before we subsided from controlling the hotness of the sauce. the waiter was a little apprehensive too since he thought that we’d play with it. it’s not part of their regular condiments and they don’t share it if the owner doesn’t know you. good thing we had connections. hehe. i only tasted it with one of the tips of a fork (what do you call them again?) and did i burn. anyway, should’ve read from the name itself. had a swell time there, just sitting and getting wasted (although we don’t usually do this everytime, and when i mean getting wasted, that means doing nothing and letting the time pass, nothing more, hehe). after, left at around 11:15 coz the boat leaves at 12mn. that’s that. don’t want to keep it as detailed as before, people might get creeped out. hehe. had a great time with them, and to think that they also had classes the following day. called it quits. hehe. i guess i had more pleasure than business after all.
lastly, when i got home, i saw all these red marks from the middle of my back down to the waist on my body. what does this mean? maybe becoz i’m not an avid drinker but does this happen to everyone? or does this imply that red horse = red marks? tell me, gotta ask the expert. hehe
