Location Google Map: Dauin beach, Negros Oriental, Philippines

Walk Along a Beach
A rich lady friend and I were taking a leisurely beach walk in Dauin when we came upon an empty stretch of beach.

Girl: This stretch of beach is so beautiful and undeveloped.

Gigit: Yes, it's so beautiful and empty. I love it.

Girl: If it's for sale, I'll buy it.

Gigit: I'll bring my hammock here one day, and sleep overnight. The following day, I'll pack up and go home, grateful for the experience. (Thought Bubble: Even if I have the money, I don't have to buy everything beautiful)
