Boys Will Be Boys

My younger brother Gio is in his 4th year HS and has just returned from his 3-day retreat. Families were asked to fetch them from school and join in a mini get together. Then I got to think, hey I was in an exclusive school too. (Gio's in DBTC while I was from St. Paul) How come the boys have a salubong for their boys while we, the girls, didn't have one. What's up with that. Boys have a more detailed retreat now? Hahaha.

Seeing my brother with his classmates made me reminisce my High School retreat. I started setting up this blog when I was in 4th year but I never got to share with you how my retreat went. So here goes...

Though I've to admit that 4th year didn't turn out as much fun as 3rd year, it became somewhat bearable because of these people :)
Our 3 - day retreat was held in St. Paul's retreat house in Baguio.

Believe me, it was so cold there! During one morning, the heaters didn't work so we had to endure the cold water at 5 am in Baguio.

The three awesome persons whom I shared my retreat the most: Loulai, Janica and Karen
