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.

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.

Stormy lunch at Nathaniel’s Bakeshop, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

Storm signal number 3 prompted us to vacate Potipot Island the other night. We stayed in Harvest Beach Resort and there we spent the windy night peacefully. When morning came, I hailed the curtain and saw the strong buffeting of waves brought by heavy rain and strong gusty wind.

Free Pepperoni thin crust pizza on my birthday… here at Shakey’s

It’s my birthday today and I was on leave from work. When my hubby arrived from his office and my kids from school, we set off to nearby Shakey’s Pizza branch to avail my free birthday gift, a large size Pepperoni thin crust pizza. We did not only go there to enjoy the perks of being a SuperCard holder, but because my kids are mojo-lovers, we will dine in as well.
