Caramoan | The Moon Over Sabitang-LayaFriday, December 07, 2012Ryan Mach
It's past 2 in the afternoon when we left Manlawi Sandbar and headed to our third and last stop for the day: Sabitang-Laya. The gentle rays of the afternoon sun and the cool sea breeze made up for a perfect sleeping pill which left some of my companions temporarily conked out. As I couldn't find a good spot in the boat to take a nap, I amused myself instead by gazing at the moon over a clear sky in the horizon. I wasn't being romantic or anything, I just found it a good distraction to while the time away. The moon seemed to be enjoying the attention it was getting from me that it decided to stick with us for a little while.
One of our companions on the other hand seemed to have lost his marbles when he climbed a huge boulder and attempted to jump off even though the water level wasn't suitable for diving. He looked like he was intent on plummeting down and I felt like his stunt would end in a tragedy - blood in the water, smashed head and all those gory stuff. I couldn't take it, so I left him before the charade reached its climax (nothing bad happened to him, thank God).
Diverting my attention to something else, I noticed a familiar spot with overgrown shrubs and grass. I realized that I saw it in one episode of Survivor US which involved a reward challenge.

What we were really looking forward to was the suckling pig which was promised to be served to us at dinner back at the resort bar in Paniman.
