The Awesomeness of an Unexpected Beauty

The alarm turned on at 5 am waking us up for an early trip to Capones Island. I was the one who woke up first and my first instinct was to unzip the tent and greet the morning sunshine. But to my utter amazement, what I saw was the vast sky, proudly hanging like a chandelier lighted with thousands of stars.
“ANG GANDA!!!” (It’s beautiful) I exclaimed and woke up Karl and Joanne. I can’t stop saying ang ganda ang ganda over and over again while pointing to the sky.
The view was so amazing that I got up and went to sit on the nearby swing. With the cold morning breeze playing with my malong, I sat on the swing staring at the awesome wonder of the sky. Not contented enough, I transferred to the hammock right beside our tent.
Lying there, the moon shines through the pine trees, stars lighted the sky and even FIREFLIES danced around and appeared like floating gold dusts. With tears, I cuddled on the hammock and savoured that awesomeness (channeling Barney of HIMYM) until it was slowly engulfed by the brightness of the sun.
It was one of those moments that I’m thankful to be alive and see such awesome wonder. It was those moments that fuel me to explore more places and experience life abundantly.
I didn’t attempt to take pictures of it and my descriptions is incomparable to its awesomeness. It was a scenery that you must see and experience for yourself. 🙂
