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.
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.
Feel the romantic ambiance of Playa Papagayo, a restaurant, bar and beachside inn situated in front of the majestic Subic Bay bordered by green rolling hills. Relax, enjoy the morning rays of the sun as well as the sunset and savor their delectable food from Mexican specials, Thai or Filipino dishes.
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.
There are many coffee shops sprouting like mushrooms around the country. Whenever we are in a family getaway, my hubby being a coffee lover will sure to chill out once he spotted a unique coffee shop along the way. We will drop by to sit a while and sip the usual mocha frappe or iced latte.
