Maundy Thursday’s the only day the entire department is available to go anywhere as a group (no newspaper for Good Friday so the office is closed), and this year we grabbed the opportunity.
We went on a daytrip (8 am to 6 pm) to Stilts in Calatagan, Batangas. Left Makati at 4:30 a.m. We were able to arrive and leave on time, it was ridiculous. On the itinerary: lunch on the beach, swim, camwhore, dinner on the way home. Special thanks to Boss Kate for making it all happen.
Her notes: “Technical notes re this trip: Entrance to Stilts was at P350/head (daytour). Since we brought in our own food and drinks, we also had to pay corkage of P100/head. (Food at the resort was around P300/meal). We also rented an open hut good for max of 15pax for P850. How to get there:View map here. Rented a van for P3,500, excluding gas and toll fees.”

I was happy to see that the beach wasn’t crowded at all. (Even though we ran out of parking space.)
We were given green mango juice as a welcome drink. Sour and yummy.
The Research Team: Marielle, Almi, Schatzi, Lawrence, me, Kate (plus Andrea and Jaykie!)
Lunch was Andok’s chicken!
Stilts also has a pool -
Those were Jaykie's legs. Definitely Lawrence's idea.
and a raft, to fulfill your camwhoring needs.
I have never been in a successful jump shot before. UNTIL NOW BWAHAHA.
See Jaykie jump! Howeeee!
Final pose before packing up:
The water was cold and the beach was stony but the weather was fine and the company was great and the place was beautiful. I had fun! Next year uli!
