This kind of beach outing that my students and I have was planned around 1 week or so. That's how short noticed it is.

Anyways, 3 of my students were talking about banana ride and how cool it is and all of us should ride on it. They were talking about 32 USD for 30min ride on the banana ride (in reality its only for 15mins.) I did not say yes or even give them a no to banana ride.

However, almost everytime we discuss our beach outing, the banana ride is always mentioned. That really did struck me that they were so eager to have that banana ride.

Even when we ride on our vehicle, they were insisting to have that banana ride until we reached the beach resort. My students are really persistent, they will never stop unless I give in. Still I remained firm and did not say a yes or a no.

Did I agree to their request???

Oh you have shark phobia? You would surely enjoy the banana ride. The sea looks dark blue already and I know it's very deep:) I forgot about the sharks when we had the banana ride, I was just scared to fall.

I have a shark phobia in the sea. I couldn't go so far from the beach. Anyhow it looks funny.

Dumaguete City History

It has always been a part of Negros Oriental especially when the whole island was divided in two in 1890. When the Philippine-American War concluded on May 1 1901, the Americans found it wise to build a civil government on the province with the city as its base. During the Second World War, the Japanese Imperial Forces captured and occupied the city on May 26, 1942. On April 26, 1945 the city finally tasted freedom with the joint efforts of the U.S. Army and the Filipino guerrillas against the Japanese.
