Junnie & Mitzi’s Last Day in Cebu

Making the most out of a slight mishap on the way to Mountain View

As in most vacations, some mishaps do occur. Junnie and Mitzi’s last day (Dec. 26) in Cebu was not spared from this. Since their flight back to Manila was at 730 PM, we felt we had just enough time to take them to Mountain View for a few photo ops using a bird’s eyeview of Cebu’s booming metro as a fab backdrop. Armed with a few packs of chips, we were on our way by mid-afternoon, after a very filling lunch at Port.

While negotiating the curves in Mountain View, Jerry sensed something wrong and was about to park to check on the hood. Before he could do that, something burst from within. Water and soot splattered the hood and my side of the window. Turned out that one of the major hoses (i’m clueless with car parts) gave and was massively damaged!

After a few calls to shops and friends, we were able to have it fixed (on location). We kept thinking it was a blessing in disguise that Mama didn’t want to join us and instead chose to do the slots at the casino. She was already not too keen on going up the mountain and experiencing a stalled car that way would have scared her to bits.

It was sorta scary but we were glad there was nothing more to it. That night, Junnie and Mitzi flew back to Manila with plenty of stories added to their memory bank. Including this one.

Thank the Heavens for cellular phones! I could just imagine the difficulty of getting the car fixed if the cell phone was absent! 😀 But because I stayed in the mountain longer than I expected, I also got to enjoy the view more than I could have.

I agree! Sayang lang, we weren’t able to reach the peak. Plus we forgot to take lots of pictures of the magnificent view from the top. Hehehe….

Well, there’s always the next time 😀

It was always the quick thinking of Jerry that saved the day and of course the help of angels around us.

Here’s a pic of the view from the car (can you see the office from here???) 😛

the good part is that nobody got hurt.

Yes, we’re glad to have very good friends who would drop anything just to assist us on emergencies like this…

The vehicle is probably ready to retire. We’re hoping to get a new one this year, after settling some major obligations. *crossing fingers*

I agree. That was a big blessing in itself! Nobody got hurt, not a scratch. Jerry just got his hands dirty. Hehehe.
