When Life Gives You Lemons

Posted on October 8, 2009 by under Travel.    


We ended up staying at this horrible resort along Alona Beach in Panglao Island called Alona Tropical Beach Resort. Sayang kaayo kay maganda ang beach, pero dili maayo ang resort. Daghang problema. Just wait for my review to be posted on Trip Advisor so that I don’t have to re-type every single sordid detail here.

The worst part was the power outage that took place during the night of our stay. The two resorts flanking Alona Tropical both had power generators so they didn’t have to go without power. Unfortunately for us, that wasn’t the case at Alona Tropical so our AC unit quit working. It was very, very hot.

Lucky for us, Brian packed a flashlight. So we took it out and walked over to the front desk. There is no one there past midnight and the security person knew nothing, so no one could help us. Nag-antos ra mi.

Since there was no power, I suggested to Brian that we walk along the beach where it would be cooler. It was actually very nice. The moon was full so we didn’t even need our flashlight there.

Mom and dad originally thought they would just wait it out in their room, but they eventually came out and joined us. The four of us hung out on these lounge chairs by the beach and just talked. The power outage lasted almost three hours, but it didn’t seem that long.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade na lang. LOL.
