Summer Team building

My Team has been requesting for a summer outing for the longest time already. So last weekend, we finally went on our first ever Team building in Candelaria, Zambales. One of my members suggested that we choose Puerto del Mar as they offer a Boat ride going to Potipot Island.

So since I am 26 weeks pregnant, I needed to bring my Boyfriend as a chaperone and to assist me with all the fuss of traveling. This is quite a good idea since he hasnt been out of their house for the longest time, he is too busy for work. Also, this will be our first outing with the baby boy.

I didn’t had the chance to take photos inside the Resort but  the rooms and the cottages are well cleaned and looks decent enough. Also, the sand is not white so I waited til our Potipot tour to take some photos. (Oh how I miss white sand and the beach!)

Here are some of the photos I took:

This was our boat ride going to Potipot. The boys are in another boat and it took them a long time to get to Potipot, we have to wait for them since their boat is having some issues with the machine.

Touchdown Potipot. While waiting for the boat of the Boys, we took some photos.

Of course, I always do photos with me showing my back (Lol) Just kidding! I just think that this pose is a bit dramatic and the details of my dress, bag and hat are so cute in back view!heh!

Strolling around the Island..

took some photos of the souvenirs and accessories because they are so colorful!

Actually Potipot is just a small Island and when we were there, a lot of people are also there so it is a bit crowded. But still, the view is worthwhile.

Of course, I didn’t miss the opportunity to take solo photos as this will be my last outing this summer before I start my Third Trimester.

and Biggs’ solo shots too. I didn’t see him for two weeks and upon seeing him during our outing.. I was surprised that he gained a lot of weight!!! haha! Dad Bod is it!

Some of my members said that we look exactly alike. What do you think? haha! Since we will be having a baby boy, I would want our little one to look like him. I do not trust my face.

Here’s the group Picture!

The outing is just from Friday night to Sunday morning. A bit short but nevertheless at least got to spend time and bond outside the office.

Tan skin and crazy days

We’ve already planned this getaway for months now and finally the day has arrived. I was so tired from my duty but I still managed to prepare for our trip to Bolinao that night. It was only me and Vaey, we almost thought that Lancy would not make it on time but luckily she did!

I was so wasted, I’ve been tossing and turning on my bus seat but I can’t seem to find a way to sleep comfortably. Ended with me, feeling so sleepy all throughout the getaway.

When we got to the Beach, I was in awe because I did not expect that it would look so majestic. The sand was so white, and they’re like tiny molecules floating in your hands. The water did not fail us too! It was so clear and overwhelming. It makes me wish that I can stay there longer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I felt like it was summer, the only difference was that there’s only a few people enjoying the scene and sand. I would love to go back here with some of my friends, maybe family members or loved ones. All the exhaustion were worth it!

Sometimes, all it takes is a nice place with the company of your dear friends!

One day at the Villa

Last Sunday, I went out with my two best buds to Grand Villa at Laguna, to use the Voucher that we bought online. It’s been scheduled a month a go but we were not able to go because of some unexpected circumstances. This time, we already had the chance but unfortunately we were late. We also experienced a lot of unusual things on our way, like losing my small pouch along the way and running late for the train.

I must say that the place is quite amusing, we were tired when we came but when we saw the place and environment we got really excited. There’s no other people that day, only a big family but when we came, they were already leaving. So, the place became our own private area.

Our Room and the view in front of our room.

What I like about this place is that they have a lot of facilities to offer, they have a football field, big hall for concerts and like, basketball court and badminton area, I especially like the Butterfly Garden and their Aviary. (I’m starting to form a fascination with Birds because of this.)

Image

Image

Image

Image

They toured us all over the Butterfly Garden and before going inside they showed us a short video clip of the Butterfly’s life cycle.

Image

These are the cute butterfly steps inside the Garden

Image

Image

I just have to take the picture of this Pupa because this one looks like Metapod of Pokemon! =))

Image

Image

The poor Butterfly’s wing is broken =(

Image

Image

I just love their aviary, I learned so many things and I was just devastated because I was not able to capture good photos of those animals and birds because most of them were inside their cages. =(

Here are some of the pictures:

Of course, the Up close picture of the adorable Peachy. =)

It was such an awesome getaway even for a short time. If you want to visit, The Grand Villa is located at Purok 2, Bgry. Tranca, Bay, Laguna Phils.

Solely within the province

If you are really a close friend of mine, you know that my Province is in Roxas city, Capiz. I know, it’s unusual to know someone who’s from Capiz. Here in the Philippines, Capiz is very popular when it comes to seafoods. The abundance of marine life makes Roxas City the “Seafood Capital of the Philippines.”  It is home to one of the richest fishing grounds in the country.

Here’s some pictures from La Plaza de Roxas. It is a park by the sea. This is quite interesting because you can just stroll by the shore of the sea and swim if you want to. It is for free!

Image

I also saw some fishermen

Image

And this cute little boy while he’s indulging himself on the sand.

For most people, it is also known for being popular for having Aswang. The aswang is an inherently evil vampire-like creature and is the subject of a wide variety of myths and stories. But, what they don’t know is that, Capiz has the Biggest Bell in Asia and I was able to see it when I came to our Province last year (After almost 15 years I was able to come back.) for the Interment of my late Grandfather.

Here is the Sta. Monica Church in Pan-ay, Capiz where the largest bell in Asia is kept.

Image

The Largest Bell is located at the topmost part of the church and I got really exhausted because I climb the stairs all the way to the top!

Image

Image

As you can see, I’m already sitting here in this picture because of exhaustion.

But, it was an enduring feeling to see it. Thanks to my cousins showed me around the area.

Going back

This is my third time at Ecopark and this time, we decided to try something new!

We tried fishing and we went to the Butterfly haven. We were supposed to Wall climb but it was so hot and we’re already sweaty walking around so what more if we try to climb a wall. I was so exhausted but I had fun. I was able to catch two small fishes!

And then the Butterflies

Had a really good day with Karen. The sun was so high but it was worthwhile.
