The hubby and I got married on March 17, 2012. It’s been 10 years since that life-changing day and look where we are now, we’re still deeply, madly in love with each other. Hahaha. Kidding aside, we just love each other to the extent that we continue to choose to be together in spite of and despite of. Our marriage is not a walk in the park but it continues to work and it continues to make us want to stay married, so I guess we’re doing just fine. When Pippo (our little angel in heaven) and NJ (our rainbow baby who’s a cheerful toddler now) came into our lives, our life together became happier and fuller. And we have God, our families, and friends to thank for that.
So, just like in our past wedding annivs, our 10th called for a celebration of sorts. The hubby and I took a leave from work for two days (March 17-18) and opted to go to the beach with baby NJ in tow. We were quite excited because it was her first time to experience the beach and we thought she would really have a wonderful time there (she did!). I initially wanted to book a room at this posh resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas but changed my mind when I checked out Klook and saw this promo at Palm Beach Resort (also in Laiya). I’ve been to Palm Beach for an office outing back in 2013 so I knew it was pretty decent. It was a good thing the hubby approved of my recommendation. Laking tipid kaya! Tapos hindi ko na iisipin ang kakainin namin dahil may full board meals dun. Winner! 🙂
Checking in to Palm Beach Resort was a breeze. Batangas was already under Alert Level 1 this month so we only had to do a saliva antigen test upon arrival. (Thankfully, we both tested negative and no more test for baby NJ.) We truly enjoyed our overnight stay. Parking was aplenty, our room was clean and comfortable, we were assigned our own cabana for lounging by the beach, buffet food during mealtimes was sufficient and tasted good, and best of all, the place was not crowded so our baby NJ had so much fun at the children’s playground, the two infinity pools, and the beach. The sea was rocky but still swimmable and we brought aqua shoes, so no problem.
Here are some photos to speak of our fun wedding anniv celebration slash family getaway:
