Galera 2012: First Real Sunbathing

Big deal for me. This is a milestone. Please don't judge.

If I were in the US, I'd be legally blind. I've been wearing eyeglasses since I was 10 years old and so the idea of wearing "shades" never really appealed to me. Plus, it costs so much to have "shades with grade" so why bother? On our last trip to Galera, however, everyone had shades so I got a little curious... and envious. Therefore, I got me one... It was a rip-off at PhP80 (K got hers for only PhP50) but it was totally worth it!

Gagamgirl was on my side on my first official sunbathing day. She introduced me to the concept of authentic chill. Wear shades, lie on your back, look up, smoke! When you start feeling burned, dip in the water, then go back to real chill (sounds like rinse repeat). Also works when you lie on your tummy... and according to Gagamgirl, this works really well with a box of Mojos on your tummy too. Haha!

So this post, ultimately, is to celebrate my first real sunbathing experience with shades... and to say thank you to Gagamgirl (for her guidance and encouragement) and to the ladies who shared the lechon spot with me.

Looking forward to more firsts, at 31. :)
