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! 🙂

Happy New Year, people! How is 2017 treating you? I hope you are all doing great and you all had a fun New Year weekend. Last weekend was a blast for the hubby and me. We, along with our two families, celebrated the New Year in our Bacoor home. We drove there first with my two sisters and parents on December 30th and my in-laws and brother joined us on the 31st.
That Friday night, we even had the time to go out for some family bonding at Evia Lifestyle Center. We had a quick dinner and watched MMFF movies.

Last weekend was filled with activities. It’s really that time of the year again. We were with family and friends bonding over food and conversations. We all had a good time. And then poof, weekend was over! That’s why it’s important to cherish these moments of happiness every chance we get to experience them.
The photos below will give you an idea on how our weekend went:

The hubby and I have been missing our Bacoor home already. It’s been weeks that we haven’t visited it. I don’t know if the few plants in our plant box are still alive or not. I don’t know how our lone Malunggay tree is coping to the “dry” situation (though I have a feeling it will continue to thrive).
On a related note, our office clothes are of the same set. We just wash them during weekends for use in the next work week. Sorry, TMI. I don’t know if my officemates are already noticing my clothes, but what the heck. Haha. The good news is, we are going home tonight. Wohoo!

It’s that time of the year again to hit the beach and bask in the glory of the sun. I’m talking about summer outings, my friends. Our office is not one to get left behind when it comes to summer outings especially now that we are allowed to have an all-expense-paid team building activity yearly.
But don’t get me wrong, the “all-expense-paid” part is quite an exaggeration. It’s not the “sky is the limit” kind. We’re never allowed to splurge because everything falls on a strict budget. But of course, we can still spend our own money if we like. Somehow, we’re still in control so we can have fun if we want to. And that’s what I like about it.

If plans will push thru, I’ll have my first summer outing in April. And it’s gonna be a team building activity of our office. My officemate and I took care of making the reservation in the resort. Right now, I’m waiting for the quotation to reach my inbox.
After reading some reviews online, we settled for this beach resort in San Juan, Batangas. Aside from the nice view and the good accommodation, what I liked about this beach resort was the price. You know, everything has to fit in our budget. I would have liked the place better if they had a swimming pool (I’m okay if it doesn’t have new pump and filter hayward parts so long as it’s clean), but it seems they didn’t have any. Or I just didn’t see one on their website. Whatever.
