Last weekend, we went up north for some R & R. Upon entering NLEX, rain suddenly poured. It was my first time to be in near-zero visibility NLEX and heck, it was scary.
We spent the afternoon at Fontana Water Park. It was my first time to try an underwater camera. And to swim in the rain (we did not realize that of course, because water’s everywhere in the Water Factory!) I don’t have pics because the camera’s not mine. I tell you, it’s a joy to use one, but I still fear for the gadget’s life whenever it gets soaked or splashed by waves.
My uncle and aunt prepared some games for us. Most controversial of them all was the marshmallow challenge. I’m stumped up to this day that I did a search online and apparently, it’s a real challenge. Akala ko kasi imbento lang talaga! The objective was to build the tallest tower with the use of these materials: pasta noodles, string, tape and a piece of marshmallow (which should be the “cherry” on top).
Time limit was around 15 minutes so it’s no surprise that our team’s structure isn’t that sturdy.
Another game: finishing jigsaw puzzles the fastest time possible.
In the end, we emerged victorious. The tiebreaker was… jack en poy. :p
