The best way to end a blessed year is to have a day trip 🙂 yah right a day trip. We can’t afford to take our leave since nothing left for 2012. haha. so absent na lang. sorry boss:)

We left Manila at 6AM para sulit!
They have this very cool receiving/souvenir area where you can already feel the “probinsya” life.After registration we walked a bit where our Carabao “Mutya” is waiting. Not your ordinary carabao ride because staffs are serenading you. so sweet.( I borrowed their guitar for photo opt but don’t know how to play with it) We visited the Pink Church and Museum (but no camera allowed inside, sorry)After that, we checked the restaurant and ordered light breakfast because we want to “sulit” our buffet lunch later, hehe.Food is so, so, not so. Maybe because not their expertise (and not their real offering, just add ons) – 120php for the sandwich w/ chips and 80php for the friesAfter resting a bit we started to enjoy the pool and the jacuzzi. We arrived early that’s why we were able to use the facilities so much.
Okay, after the super duper enjoyed swimming we went to the highlight of the place, the buffet and falls area. We arrived early than the others (kaya nasolo namin and was able to take pic na walang bomber). Saya saya 🙂 We enjoyed the food. 8 out of 10 🙂 we rested a while then we tried the next activity, the balsa ride. This is not included in the package, rate is 300php but worth to do since so relaxing and pampababa ng kinain. Take note: 300php is unli use na 🙂 After that we bought a frap in the big restaurant to beat the afternoon heat. (90php)We washed up and change clothes. We had a quick drop at the Church where they held their weddings. Here’s the resort map for your guidance 🙂 Then we waited for their shuttle going outside the resort.Its a fun filled and relaxing day with my bhunch. We need to be relaxed because we will be stressed with 2013 because of our wedding preps.
We went home with a relax mind and love filled heart.
