I didn’t ask about the price at first because I was expecting it to have the usual price. However, we have opened the drinks and there’s no way of turning back.

My brother and I decided to have a road trip using my motorbike on a sunny Saturday. Unluckily, I thought my digicam was charged full but it wasn't. Of course, there would be regrets for us without the souvenir photos. As we are down to our last spot, the most important one, my digicam’s battery is down for draining.

SULVEC, NARVCAN

[NARVACAN] ▬ UNFORGETTABLE STORE: JUNE 06, 2010


#NARVACAN


SO, MY PLAN IS TO look for a store for the purpose of charging my battery. But of course, we have to buy items then we’ll ask them that favor of charging my battery. 

In a store in front of the beautiful Sulvec Bay in Narvacan, ILOCOS SUR

ILOCOS SUR

, Philippines, we chose a store and I didn’t know its name. 
We bought C2 Green Tea (the small one) and into my big surprise, it was 25 each (about half a US dollar – Note: In the Philippines 1 dollar can already buy a burger and a Coke, drinks amounting half a dollar is considered very expensive). 

I didn’t ask about the price at first because I was expecting it to have the usual price. However, we have opened the drinks and there’s no way of turning back. 

Gosh! One thing more that made me angry is that the store owners are so unapproachable and they even turned their faces angry when I asked a favor from them to charge my battery! That was so bad!

However, luckily, I was still able to take one photo of the bay before my battery was totally drained.

This is the Beautiful Sulvec Bay I almost missed to capture and share because my battery got drained, and the reason I bought an expensive C2, without any benefit at all aside from the stomachache I sustained because of being unable to eat heavy meal. ▬ end
