P/Y JOKAI 1:  The YACHT, SEA BREEZE and the SUNSET have united to complete my DAY. 

I wonder how the indistinguishable waves are being formed just like how I marvel how the sunset rest on its throne. There are wondrous things in life that are already existing, but made us still question, bewildering on the side what made them exist or they just exist for the mere fact of just knowing that they truly exist? Have you ever wondered why people chase after sunrise and the sunset? Why do people challenge themselves to climb mountains just to witness the sunset and dawn? Truly the genuine things in life were being questioned because that’s where the authenticity starting to delve into.

I opened my eyes in one afternoon questioning myself while I got my feet traipsing as I was like floating on an ocean with a staunchly oppugn looming overhead while inside the  beautiful Yacht. I was on the other side of the world, considering the situation I’m presently in. A moment I had never thought I would see myself into. Thinking I was dreaming, but a sudden sea breeze clothing me and my sawed-off hair was dancing while I was on the upper deck of the yacht, then that moment I was convinced enough that I’m faced with reality.

I began hearing the unfamiliar sound, but  soothing to my ears brought by the engine of the yacht. I was sitting on a comforting quilt, placed along the tough elastic synthetic polyamide material kind of chair in a light color state while facing to the stunning islands of Mactan. The Yacht started moving, trying to ruin the calming state of the ocean during that time while the sea breeze filling and providing the real heart of cruising on a yacht.

I couldn’t elucidate how exactly do I feel that moment, who would have imagined Cebu has this sort of experience? I started ambling around the yacht while talking to some familiar faces, make some friends with other people, asking some information from the crew of the yacht which they definitely know how to spew off some answers to my friendly questions which I’ll be sharing to you in a while.

There was another familiar sound I discovered  which was enticing coming from the other side of an open corner with a shining baluster behind the davenport sofa. The sound is like bidding to fill my stomach and feast my eyes. There is a cracker served and peanuts on a table while cruising along the Mactan Island. If my stomach would have talked, he would surely say thank you for paying attention to what I’ve been asking. Then another food being served, an Italian kind of pizza topping with a taste of an Italian style that appears to be freshly arrived from Italy and paired with a glass of wine while enjoying the tropical bliss of Mactan Island. A leisure moment that everyone must experience before the sun decided to bid adieu.

As I was gazing to the vividness of the clear firmament above me, safe in mind and sealed my positive drawn perspective about the dramatic scenery of the sunset while begging it to connive to my expectation. The law of attraction proved itself at that time. I sluggishly witness how the sun moving below the horizon as if waving its light and bid goodbye. The genuine innate beauty of the sunset is inimitable that even an artist can’t paint how genuine it was at that moment.

I was at that place, it was another exquisite moment as I’ve seen the atmospheric effects scattering around the sky. The glistening of  dramatic scenery reflected on a surface of the calming water of the sea, it’s like witnessing a couple kissing on their wedding day, romantic as it is and an authentic moment one has long been waiting to experience. It’s like committing a sin that you can’t repay if you would never pay attention to your camera and forget to capture every precious second.

The sun has finally rested on its comfortable paradise and left us in awe. I can’t thank God enough for offering such  stunning scenery that rarely happen. The presence of light gone and the darkness happily filling the space to remind us that we have ended our day with such a treasured experience that we’ll keep forever. Nothing compares to the sunset cruise experience that Jokai Marine International Incorporated has to extend to everyone, incomparable and one of a kind experience that everyone should try and enjoy.
