Bakasyunan Resort in Tanay, Rizal: Refreshed and Satisfied

We had come to know Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center in Tanay, Rizal while watching GMA-7′s morning show Unang Hirit. What caught our fancy were the big Infinity Pool and their thrilling outdoor activities. For our twentieth anniversary, my hubby surprised me a weekend getaway in this famous resort. Together with our kids and my mother, we will drive a two-hour trip in getting to the province of Rizal.

Shi Lin: Authentic Taiwanese Cuisine

This day marked our 21st wedding anniversary. My hubby surprised me a water getaway not today but tomorrow since he wanted our kids and my mother to celebrate this special occasion with them. For the meantime, we will be having a dinner in Circuit Makati, just the two of us together. Sounds sweet naman oh! We were craving for ramen. But to our dismay, there’s no restaurant in this mall that serves ramen. So we opted to eat noodles, and we chose Shi Lin.

Early dinner at Apag Marangle, Pampanga

Our two-day sun and sand getaway at Nagsasa Cove in Zambales was indeed so refreshing. Before we left the jump-off point we ate our brunch then we set off for a long drive going back to Manila. When we were along Gapan Road, everyone was talking about snack. We searched for dining options somewhere in Pampanga which is known for its sophisticated culinary work and exotic dish. We saw one restaurant but did not seem very interesting so we moved on. By a stroke of luck, we stumbled upon this humble restaurant Apag Marangle which was beside the main highway in Sta. Barbara, Bacolor, Pampanga.

With my hubby at Applebee’s, BGC

When my hubby’s former office-mates went home from work abroad, he was cordially invited for a dinner at Applebee’s Grill and Bar, or simply Applebee’s at Eastwood, Quezon City. He was fascinated with their best-seller Blackened Ribeye. This is the reason why he sweetly coerced me to go BGC (Bonifacio Global City) in Taguig for a Friday dinner date for two.
