My first sunset experience of Coron was beautiful! The view of the sun as it set in the horizon seemingly being silently but deliberately being swallowed by the dark sea struck me as both beautiful and frightening. Here we are, my family and my brother's, together in this isolated island. The generator was finally on. The dining hall and our cottages are now lit up but still there was an eerie silence to it all. Yes, we were talking and laughing and even singing along with an old Regine Velasquez CD but it was still too quiet for me.



There was no sound of traffic or the hum of electrical and electronic gadgets. My son and Ethan were about to go on a withdrawal phase from lack of cable TV and access to internet. It seems my nephew is about to join the band wagon of electronic gadget addicts in detox.

I heard a bell ring. No, it wasn't Angelus time. It was dinner time! One of the "manangs"to trudged along the beaten and sandy path clanging a bell to call one and all that it was time to eat. At the rate that we were being fed, my daughters and I seriously need diet pills that actually work to take when we go back home to "reality".
