I cannot remember the first dinner meal served to us in Majika Island. Seafood, veggies and fresh fruits I assume. I was too worried regarding our sleeping arrangements as there would be no air-conditioning for Ethan. The generator would be on all night so the two electric fans would have to suffice.

Everyone was tired. We all had a long day because of our trip from Manila to Busuanga to Coron to Majika Island. At 7:30 P.M. I told Ethan to go up the cottage so he could take a bath before bed. He ran, wearing his flip flops. Here's the thing. Ethan has never worn flip flops before so he tripped on an jutting stone from the sandy path.

I heard a loud ouch and an-honest-to-goodness wail. Ethan stubbed his left toe big time and it was bleeding bad. His mommy applied pressure on the wound and gave him a quick bath. The wound was worse than we expected. His mommy poured antiseptic on the wound, applied topical antibiotic and bandage. Ethan needs oral antibiotics and I didn't bring any. The nearest pharmacy was 45 minutes away by sea. There was no way to get off the island to buy the medicine for it was already dark. We just have to wait until morning. It is good that I bought paracetamol. I gave Ethan a dose and he fell asleep with ease.

It was me who had a hard time falling asleep. It was 9:00 P.M. and I don't "do" 9:00 P.M. I took out my laptop and tried my mobile broadband. Nothing. How I wish I downloaded movies in a flash drive so I could at least bore myself to sleep while watching a movie. In times like this how I wish I went ahead and bought over the counter sleep aids back in Manila.

Alright now... this will be a long night.
