Wow, you actually made a list? You’re the best!

I know! (laughs) Okay, let’s see… Have you ever gone backpacking? We can go to Laguna. It’s about two hours from Manila.

Sorry, I’m not really into backpacking.

Hmm, how about Coron? It’s on an island called Palawan. We can go waterskiing or snorkeling. Oh, and they also have good diving spots!
