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! 🙂

The heat outside is unbearable. It makes me want to take a bath every five minutes. If I had the money and the time, I’ll go on a beach trip pronto. I have only been to some of the country’s beautiful beaches and I know there’s still a lot, lot more waiting to be explored.
This intense heat is making me look forward to the coming weekend. The hubby and I plan to go to this resort in Cavite for a day tour and if we’ll like it there, we’ll bring the entire family for an outing, too.

Seriously, I don’t have any. I am actually doing some work this long weekend. I might do some cooking here at home but right now, I just wanna rest. Tonight I have work at the restaurant and so I wanna relax a bit for now. Oh, there’s this new game I’m playing in my iPod Touch called Veggie Samurai and I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s quite similar to Fruit Ninja except that the veggies can be diced and there are giant veggies showing up every now and then giving you a perfect 100 score if you are able to cut it into several slices quick. Unfortunately, I have yet to beat the 1,400+ high score courtesy of my younger sister. Bummer.
Tomorrow is Father’s Day! To make it a bit special for my Dad, I’m taking him to a nice restaurant that he hasn’t been to yet. I initially wanted to take the entire family to an outing at some nice resort in Cavite. I wanted all of us to swim in huge pools complete with swimming pool lifts and have fun all day. But I realized I had an upcoming beach trip in Zambales next week and I needed money for it. Maybe, next time. Haha.

My first summer outing has just come to an end. As expected, it was fun and relaxing. I couldn’t ask for more. Two days of basking in the sun and frolicking in the surprisingly clear Quezon waters was invigorating. I loved the touch of my feet in the fine brown sand. At one moment, I even felt like I was in Panglao and Boracay. The private beach resort we went to was plain and nothing exceptional but it sure relieved my longing for the sea and all the fun that came with it. I was very satisfied.
Now that I’m back home, I can’t help but reminisce of my first summer adventure this 2011. Spending time with the fiancee and his officemates is something I won’t mind doing again. The road trip we had Friday night was an awesome experience in itself, from the zig zag road and the stop overs to our funny car conversations and finally, arrival in our lodging house for the night. I was exhausted when I got home, yes, but it was all worth it. I would have wanted to extend our stay in Quezon but reality bit…I still had tons of work to do online and offline. Actually I’ve just awaken several minutes ago and right now, I’m checking my mails while reading up human growth hormone reviews. This is gonna be a long night, but I’m not complaining. I had a fun weekend, after all.
