Happy hearts everyone! Most people find it depressing if you we don't have dates on Valentines Day, but, it's not depressing at all. We have friends and families. Even if I have a partner, I spent my Valentines Day with my friends. My partner has to go to work, and we already had a make up date before Valentines Day. We're not so clingy with each other, and we meet up once a week or three times a month.
|I'm at Tambobo Bay|
My friends asked me one time why I don't go out with Max in a road trip. That gives me an idea of reaching Tambobo Bay and Malatapay market. Our endearment is "boo", and later on we call ourselves "booboo."

It was one boring day, and we have to spend our rest day together for the first time. I asked him why he never went out with me in a road trip. He told me, because I never asked him so. I didn't feel guilty, because I know what he's getting at. He just wanted to change the story. I dared him to go with me in Tambobo Bay. He was caught off guard, telling me with all the excuses and everything. But, we off and went to Tambobo Bay that day.

What's in Tambobo Bay?
It's a beautiful cove where many yachties are attracted to stay from a long travel. The place is really clean and peaceful. It's also surrounded with mangroves that serves as a marine sanctuary. Let me take you with me.
Since there is no beach resort in the area, from Dumaguete City, Philippines, you've got to stop in Malatapay market. Sumptuous lunch is serve in many carinderias or eatery. They are only open every Wednesday.

After all those bumps and rough roads, we're able to see a glimpse of the bay from afar. I tried to take a lot of pictures, but I gave up due to the scorching heat of the sun.

I was so tired and drained from our travel. We hid ourselves in a small shades and talked for awhile. The place is really marvelous. It's wonderful how they manage to keep it clean and beautiful.
