So how to waste a day in Bantayan? Well, you really do not have to do much. Or spend much either. Just find yourself a cozy spot on the beach, order an ice cold beer. And do nothing. Perfect, ain't it? After brekkie, I let the Energy Ball change into her swim suit, smothered her with sun screen and we were good to go.
The BFFs and the rest of the friends were checking out that day. They bummed around, had a very fast lunch and bade us goodbye. It was just the three of us and two other resort guests remaining. So we brought out our stash of junk food (bought all the way from the city), ordered a few beers, played on the sand, had fun in the water. The best way to go Pit Senyorin', don't you think?

The fireworks put her in a really bad mood. To cheer her up, we decided to get her some ice cream. After dinner, we went inside this cute ice cream house (I guess you can call it that) called Le Petite Bonheur. Unfortunately, they ran out of ice cream so we ended up ordering a chocolate shake instead. Staying true to her tantrums, she snubbed the shake and continued on sulking. Oh well. Let kids be kids, right?

So to cap off the night, we had an outdoor movie marathon.... okay, okay, we watched a movie in the laptop at our veranda. The Energy Ball finally ended her tantrum, asked for a paper and pen and busied herself with drawing. Two movies and several scratch papers later, she started rubbing her eyes - which meant that she was getting sleepy. So Janjan and I decided to call it a night. The Energy Ball went straight to sleep. No more fussing and crying. Sweet. =)
