Hello World!!!

I seem to have an illness.  It is called summer separation disorder.  Haha.  I still cannot get over summer.  I still want go to more beaches and enjoy the sun……  Although that is achievable, all I need is to have time.  Thats it time, oh why your so precious?

Since Im still in summer mode, why not talk about our company summer outing and team building.  It was held in Munting Buhangin Beach Camp, in Nasugbo Batangas.  It is about 2 to 3 hours away from Makati.  It is near enough for a weekend get away.  The beach is nice and the wind is refreshing too.  You can  sense of the rural atmosphere, calm and quiet and yet you know you are still near the urban chaos.

The activity was organized by our Human Resource Department.  They prepared various fun games that promotes team building.  In fairness, the games were quite simple yet enjoyable.  It really stir the competitivenes in each employee; leaders came out with strategies and in the end team work prevails.  It was a day of fun and peer bonding.  Nothing serious really.  We just took a day out of our office cubicles and enjoyed the sand, sun and each other companies.

Hello World!!!

Our Coron adventure officially started when we safely landed in Busuanga airport.  Why Im even writing that?  Well, I just cannot forget how cute our plane was.  It was my first time riding a plane that small.  Yes, I am a little bit Scared and I think It was the first time that I really listened to the reminders given by the flight attendants.  They are a little bit different too.  But anyways were fine.

Welcome to Us!!!

Welcome to Us!!!

The cute plane. Captain thank you for flying us safely.

Just like any other tourists, We are exited to see the islets and beaches of Coron.  We are ready to be kissed by the sun and turn golden brown….haha.  That is why we wore long sleeves rashguard? Whatever…..

So our tour started around 7 AM.  We went to their pier and meet our tour assistant.  He pointed our boat that will be our ride for the day. Then, our Island hopping began.  I must say, when you go island hopping in Coron, its best to bring your own equipments (snorkle and the aqua shoes).  Also, do not forget to bring bread for the fishes.

Summer lovin….Fun @ Anawangin

Hello world!!!

Yes I am still alive.  I am just disconnected and very busy lately.  I really miss blogging.  So whats up????  You know what, I have many stories to tell and things to show you.  They are all in queue right now.  And mind you it is getting longer everyday.  Right now I will show you you my latest escapade that happened just last weekend.  This is the premise: Before summer ends we want to go to the beach and just relax…….

Thus off we went to Anawangin cove.  It is in Pondaquit in San Antonio, Zambales. It is one of the nearest cove and camping site in North Luzon.  Because it is a cove it is surrounded by mountains of rocks.  And what is more amazing is the tall pine trees on the beach.   It was said that it just grew there after the eruption of mt. Pinatubo in 1991.  Cool right?

Here is the summary of our trip:

Travel time:

Makati to San Antonio 4 to five hours depending on traffic.  We made it in four hours because we traveled on the wee hours of the morning.   In San Antonio Municipal Hall, precy our boat contact picked us up and we traveled another 20 minutes to Pundaquit.  It is pundaquit where we will ride the boat going to Anawangin.  That is another 30 to 45 minutes.  Precy also have tents available for rent in case you do not have one.

Things to bring:

Remember that Anawangin cove is one of the famous camping sites.  Being one, bringing tents, plastic mats, picnic blanket are essential.  I am telling you this because we did not bring any of those.  Haha.  And so we learned our lesson.  Our excuse is that we wont stay over night.  But still, It is so fun to lounge on the soft sand and read a good book and hear the ocean waves from the shore……So relaxing and cosy.

Deck of cards to pass time, food and water and plenty of stories to share with the group……

Things to do:

Relax and just chill….Enjoy the beauty of nature and recharge your energy.

Swim all you can with. The water is inviting and the waves are so exciting to tackle. When we went there it is kind of wavy and the current is strong.  But nonetheless we still had a great time in the water.

Practice photography.  Anawangin is gifted with such beautiful landscape.  Every corner is like a painting.  Why not compose your own perfect picture and let it speak volume about the place.

Summer, is really more fun in the Philippines.
