World Record vs Rain (Palawan’s Longest Seafood Grill)

Tourist with lolo

Weeks before the attempt of Palawan to break the Longest Seafood Grill Record, everybody was excited. I, for one, wrote it in my calendar and marked it thrice in my cellphone just to make sure i will not forget it. Coordinators said nobody can stop them.

5:00 pm – We started to dress up so we can be there before traffic jams us. However, rain started to pour. We waited for a bit.

5:30 pm – More rain poured so we decided to eat dinner just in case the activity will stretch up to 9pm, that would be too late for dinner.

6:00 pm – We embarked from our haven and jammed a bit from the traffic. We were so excited to be part of this memorable occasion and so we went directly to the site. The Capitol were full of participants but there was no charcoal and fish yet. All we saw were bottles of gasoline and umbrella for shelter.  🙂 We didn’t mind if we’ll get wet with the rain bacause we were just so excited(and we just cant hide it!). But then more rain started to pour .

6:30 pm – We had few bottles of San Mig Light at Centralle Grill Bar(previously Kristins Resto) to seek shelter and waited for the start of the program. Drizzle/Dew/Rain whatever you call it didn’t want to cooperate

6:45 – 7:30 pm – Heavy rain made several participants to give up their participation. Many went home with little children with them. Good thing we were at a good place so we stood on the ground and waited.

7:55 pm – Rain slowly weakened, but the emcee announced the unexpected. “Due to unfavorable weather condition, we’re sorry to announce that the record attempt for Longest Seafood Grill will be postpone to another date. Sponsors may take their share of fish with them” People were disappointed!

8:00 pm – There was no rain at all. We started to roam the site and people started to make fire out from the wet charcoals. Many were liven up when people shouted and cheered as a fire lit up. It seemed people wanted to push the activity or perhaps they were just hungry hehehehe!

9:15pm – As we left the capitol to go home, fireworks started to show up.

Palawans Longest Seafood Grill Records versus Rain? Who reigns?

Palawan somehow lost its bid for its first attempt to break a record in longest seafood grill. Palawan lost its will against Rain. “Sayang! Kung tinuloy nalang sana!” Anyway, even if the record was not attained(for the meantime), I’m still looking forward for the next attempt. I just hope that it will be rain or shine. Or perhaps, coordinators can place tents next time to provide shade or shelter to people, just in case it rains again!
