What did you do last Easter Sunday? Me I tried to kill myself… by jumping off a cliff. Of course I survived just to have this post, haha.
That Sunday morning was particularly blissful; the sky was clear, the breeze mesmerizing, the tide was high (really high), and the sea was so tempting cool. I’d be a fool if I had not plunged in to the beach of Boracay on Easter. I stayed away from the beach front crowd so I went into my sanctuary up north at the end of paradise. It was Sunday and I’m obliged to behave and not stare too many on them people wearing those seductive bikinis. Temptation Island.
But as I reached my destination I noticed there was a gang of local boys swimming and having a lot of fun above the rocks! Those rock were stiff and nail-like to step on, but I cant resist joining them jumping and diving. I knew the water below is not deep on regular tides but that particular day it was just perfect, I could swear the water was 10 feet high. I thought I could survive like those shokoys (roasted mermaids) I am with. So jump I did!
At around 20 feet off the ground it’s my highest I’ve ever jumped on. But hey it’s only a sneek preview. I’ll jump 30 feet on Ariel’s Point on the mainland. Then 50 feet off the cliffs of Malapascua in Cebu. This kid likes to die hard. And my reward for that act of bravery (and foolishness) is a painful dose of sun burns. Don’t ever touch my back kiddos (it hurts).
