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.

Remarkable Caloocan A part of the municipalities of Metro Manila is the city of Caloocan.  This city plays a significant role in Philippine History as the momentous site of the Cry of Balintawak which was a locally-lead uprising against the Spaniards, who had colonized most of the Philippine archipelago.  Caloocan is considered a home of heroes and its people are proud to live in such a remarkable city.
