You know how I've been talking about summer ending so soon without a little kick-off party? Well this is finally it! My high school friends and I were planning for one last get-together before classes start. The first plan wasn't that successful. It's pretty frustrating to plan with ten or twenty people. Sometimes they won't agree to your suggestions and sometimes they get into your nerves and push you to pull yourself away from the situation. But then an unexpected plan B popped up and we all gleefully pitched in.
ABC boys! (I forgot why they call their group ABC haha)
Ladies and gentlemen, my first death-defying jump! HAHAHA I look like I just jumped off a sinking Titanic! While I was standing on the edge of the cliff, my heart was beating crazy fast and my stomach was tightening. My hands were cold as ice. Half of me was thinking, "Jump bitch! This is what you have always wanted to do!" and the other half was, "Fuck no! Don't do it! This is how you're going to die!". Did I listen to that scared little freak? HAHAHA No siree!
The water is actually about 12 feet deep. You're never going to land on the sharp rocks underwater.
Then the rest of the gang came to jump in, literally and figuratively ;D
We moved to another cliff dive spot and this time, we were standing atop of a wide cliff. The vast view made it ten times exciting and scary! Yep, that's my first jump in the second cliff. I chickened out a little but Kuya Jay (the tour guide) motivated me to jump.
And for our last big splash, we all jumped in one by one. The last jump I did was crazy scary. At first, I wanted to just back out, climb down the rock stairs and join the others for the photo but Raven kept telling me to just jump the hell off. I spent a minute standing on the edge, hearing my heart beating fast. I actually wished I could rip it off my chest and throw it away. I kept hearing Raven motivating me to jump already then without any further hesitation, I jumped. It felt a bit like what Charlie felt when he stood in the back of the truck, arms spread like wings, while Patrick was driving through the tunnel. I felt infinite ~ chos!

Aside from cliff diving, Initao National Park also offers tons of interesting things to explore like the hundred-year old big-ass tree behind us and a few caves.
We then went back to Midway to clean up, pack up our stuff and head back to the city before the angry rain clouds release their wrath upon us.

What a way to bid adieu to Summer 2013! Road trips, the company of good ol' friends, the glittering sea, the warm kisses from the sun, the big rocks, the adrenaline rush, the deafening genuine laughter, the good food... all these and more add up to one perfect end-of-summer getaway.
