Birthday Fun at Ternate Beach Resort, Ternate Cavite

For my daughter’s 10th birthday celebration, we opted to go back to Katungkulan Beach Resort (formerly known as Cavite de Boracay) in Ternate, Cavite for another water fun adventure. Unfortunately, it was closed due to week-long training of the marines. Our Plan B was in Ternate Beach Resort, the nearest resort known for its budget rate and accessibility.

Moonlight Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas

When my sister abroad went home for a one-month vacation with her family, she told me to look for a nice beach for a water escapade. My brother who is based in Singapore came home too for a five-day vacation. This is indeed an exciting reunion with my siblings especially with my sister who got so busy with her work since they migrated to California for almost three years now.

A birthday treat at Burot Beach, Calatagan, Batangas

I’ve heard about Burot Beach, formerly Elizalde Beach (owned by an affluent family, the Elizaldes) way back 2008 when my former office mates spent a summer get away here. I was in another occasion so I missed a generous amount of opportunity spending a quiet weekend getaway in a place, devoid of crowd and to where sunset offers an obstructed view of a breathtaking sea.

Aniao Islets and Baler Lighthouse: Part 4 of our Baler Trip

I got out of bed so early to capture the sunrise, but as I looked at the sky, imminent downpour was on its way. It was an overcast morning and to my dismay, I still have no sunrise photo of Baler for our second day. But it did not dampen my excitement. Rain or shine, this day is a wonderful day to be happy and we have have to go on with our Baler Adventure.
