My Vacation in Philippines: Summer Saya in Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy with your family and friends, BAKASYUNAN RESORT AND CONFERENCE CENTER is perfect to have a vacation. The resort is located at Sitio Lawak, Brgy. Amungan, Iba, Zambales. It’s a 5 hours drive from Valenzuela City (This is the City where I live) via NLEX and SCTEX. But if you’re a formula one driver like Michael Schumacher then you can make your road trip short for 2 hours. J

You can enjoy numerous activities and amenities that this resort offers and they also have spacious function halls that are ideal for seminars, celebrations/reunions, retreats etc.  The pool is small but very clean. For the food, I would recommend you arrange a catering service with them because the place is far from the market and you’re here to relax/enjoy, right? It’s hassle-free and you save time! But I saw some tourist who brought their own food. They borrowed a grill from the resort staff for free. The grill is so f*c*ing  filthy plus I haven’t seen a stove or cooking utensils there. Anyway, I didn't went there to wake up too early to prepare breakfast, so good thing we have a caterer to assist our breakfast, lunch, merienda and dinner.

Captured the perfect sunset in my lens :)

Our room is nice, clean and cozy. We got the “family beach front” room that has three queen size beds, linens, two pillows each bed, veranda, fridge, 3 mono-block chairs and a round table. The air-condition is working fine and we did not turn it off for 3 days straight. hehe!! No electric lamps in our room. My parents don’t like to sleep with lights on but I’m having a hard time to sleep in a dark room. What I did, I turn on the lights in the rest room just to have a small amount of light. We have the perfect view of the beach. Overall rating for the room is very good.

Family Beach Front Rooms

The rest room is very small. It’s just enough to fit a toilet, sink and a shower. But for me, it’s all OK as long as it has a hot and cold shower and doesn't smell bad. My rating for the rest room is very good.

WI-Fi? Yes the resort has it BUT the signal strength is POOR. Anyway, it’s OK because I didn't go there to surf the net. Haha!!

My family enjoyed our 3 days and 2 nights vacation in Bakasyunan Resort in Zambales. I'm very happy with our vacation, another good memories with my family before I go back to Singapore this June.

Computer Animated Film: Finding Nemo

This animated film is very dear to me because my nephew Gabriel Dominic and I always watch the film every night. This is one of our bonding moments and only few of my friends know that I treat Gabriel like my own son. He’s very close to me and he calls me “Mom”. I've introduced other films to Gabriel but he doesn't like it and it's so irritating when he scream “Fish” We always go back to finding nemo as per request. Hehe

Anyway, I’m sick and tired of watching the aforementioned film but I’m starting to love it because of Marlin and Dory. A shark tried to eat them while trying to save nemo, they've encountered an anglerfish in the trench, they run into a bloom of jellyfish that nearly sting them to death and engulfed by a blue whale. They've come across a lot of hardship but they never give up. That’s the spirit and I love it! I love this film.

I like the personality of Dory (a regal blue tang with short-term memory loss) because Dory is very optimistic. I don’t want to boast but I’m like Dory very optimistic even there are many hindrances in my way I don’t get discourage. I see those as challenges in life that you need to overcome. I always think positively and I’m trained that every problems has its solutions and I will not stop until I find the way.

I just love this movie and I complain no more when my nephew-son requested to watch this.

Just keep swimming... You know what you gotta do when life gets you down? Just keep swimming...Just keep swimming...Just keep swimming... swimming swimming
What do we do we swim, swim, swim

My Vacation in Philippines: Summer Saya in Manila Ocean Park

The summer is not yet over because I can still feel the heat here in Manila. My face is sweating like a pig at least not my UA (that’s yucky). We went in Manila Ocean Park a while ago, if not for my nephew (Gabriel Dominic) I don’t want to go here. Don’t get me wrong, I love fish and other aquatic animals but I already foresee what will happen next – chasing Gabriel all day. There’s no traffic that’s why my mom and I approached the place in no time. My nephew loves fish, he’s happy whenever we watch “Finding Nemo” every night. Take note every night. This is my most watch movie ever! As in ever! Playing over and over again when the movie comes to its end, Gabriel says “one more!” We will watch it together because he has this habit of sitting on my lap immediately before I start to go out of our room. If ever I run, he will cry and I don’t want him to cry.  From the time when I arrived here in our home from Singapore, it’s been 21 days now since we started watching Finding Nemo. By this time can you imagine how we memorized every sequence of this movie? J

We bought the package “Deep Sea Rush 5” with attractions: Oceanarium, Sea Lion Show, Marine Life Habitat, Musical Fountain Show and Jellies Exhibit. The ticket is at sale price of Php550.

This day, Gabriel met Nemo and other aquatic animals. We decided not to watch the Sea Lion Show, not to go in Marine Life Habitat and Musical Fountain Show because of excessive heat and Gabriel is a brat; Mom and I don’t have enough energy to stop Gabriel’s tantrums.

It’s a fun and exciting day indeed minus the brattiness of my nephew but its ok; we still enjoyed our mini tour. I know Gabriel will remember the little fish named Nemo he saw in the tank.

Here are some of our pictures:

My niece's underwater themed party

The bday celebrant with her parents (Ate Dang & Kuya Joeseph)

Apart from wedding, one of my favorite celebrations is birthday party. I love attending to children's parties and I feel like a child when I see clowns, colorful balloons and magic shows. 

Nowadays balloons come in different shapes and sizes and the magic show I've seen in Unah’s party execute different techniques and very entertaining.

Under the sea theme party :)

Sugar swing!!! This 6 inch - 4 layer cake on top with cupcakes taste so good. It taste just right. Not too sweet. I’m not in a very good mood that day because of my migraine and eating sweets depends on my mood. I tried just two cupcakes since I’m anxious to get fat.

The cake table setting is so adorable plus the blue and white balloon arc adds charm - overall two thumbs up!   

Some charming beach bucket for kiddos

Super cute table setting with balloon fish as a center piece

Cutey octopus balloon

After the magic show, here comes the puppet show and then the bubble show. For some reasons I don’t like puppets. I feel scared with their looks and when I look at their eyes; they look so real as if they are alive – so I’m scared. And puppet show for me is tedious. Super long and its repetitive. 

On the contrary I didn't get bored because the puppet always cracking jokes. Now I love puppet shows simply because it made me smile. Having a vacation and attending to a birthday party with super nice magic/puppet shows are so much fun.
