Food & Dining Kap & Me My Kids

Beach Edition: Anilao. Fun in the Sea & Sun.

Last undas, Kap got it into his crazy head that we should go to Anilao for some water activities. As usual, I was outvoted. Nag-road trip kami ng hindi oras!


When Kap plans a road trip, I know for certain, it means ROUGHING IT. First order of business. Kainan sa turn-turo. :| Lunch at Treehouse Restaurant & Resort.


Ooooo-kaaaaaay? Their twisted version of RAIN + TREE. :|


I have happy kids. Wherever we take them be it grand or simple, they find ways to be happy. I have such good kids. I’m glad & thankful that they’re not like their metikulosang mommy. I’m trying, I really am.


Okay gratitude challenge. I’m thankful for the saran-wrapped crispy pata para hindi madapuan ng langaw! :P

Finally after 2 hours (time that we also get to SM Megamall -grabe!) we finally reached our destination in Batangas. Kap is a suki of VISTA APLAYA. He’s been there a couple of times with just our babyson for water play. To read my previous post, CLICK HERE.

Vista Aplaya is a family-run beach front resort in Anilao, Batangas. It has 7 rooms. Overnight rate ranges from 5.5k up for the following: Cottages 1-4 (2 queen beds), Cottage 5 (1 queen bed), Attic (1 double bed, 2 single beds), and Cottage 6 (1 queen bed, 1 double bed)

For complete details, click here to visit AGODA as Vista Aplaya’s Facebook & webpage is not very updated.





Vista Aplaya is better than most of the resorts Kap has booked us into. Not 5-star, alam nyo namang maarte akong tunay, but clean & decent. And MUCH BETTER than when he took us to PHILPAN! @_@ The bedroom & bathroom are spacious albeit old.  But you know me, I’m not the nature type so anything woodsy, bamboo-y or mabato-bato & sandy, huwag among tanungin coz you won’t get a positive reaction from me talaga sorry. I’m a city girl through & through.



I kept mostly to myself in the cool air-conditioned room, catching up on blogging, while Kap & the kids frolicked. When not in the room, I was content watching them have fun from this covered veranda which is just outside our room.





And soon enough, Kap was paddling away.


Followed suit by our kids who thankfully got their active lifestyle from him, and not from couch potato mom! :P




The body she has worked so hard for! <3

The next day, Kap was able to persuade me to venture out. ANG BATO HA! Ang dami kong gasgas from the sharp corals huhuhu. Being a diabetic, my wounds take super long pa naman to heal.


Because I’m a spoiled brat, Kap took care of every detail so I’ll shut up. Hahaha kawawang Kap! :P Taga-lagay ng sunscreen, taga-suot ng beach shoes, taga-bitbit ng tubig at sombrero! He really is my knight in shining armor. I’m so lucky! <3


No. This is just for photo op. This kayak is not sturdy enough to carry my weight. LULUBOG SI URSULA!

Speaking of undas, my next halloween costume, by the way! ;)




Nope, he’s not proposing, lels. He coaxing me to sit on his lap because I was threatening to go back to the room. But then, LAMBINGAN??? GAME! ;P

Hay. Reklamador lang ako by nature.. when it comes to nature. But deep down, of course I loved liked was ok with our time spent together as a family. I’m all bark & no bite. At the end of the day, home is where the heart is. So if the beach is where they want to be.. PWEDE BANG SA SHANGRILA NAMAN??? :P

      Anilao is mabato. I’m okay to be brought to sandy beaches with 5-star. They have my full cooperation there & I will really join them in the fun! ;))

    What a perfect way to start MONDAY!!! LOL-ing all the way, thank you so much, dearest Ursula!

    Spell B-R-A-T!

    In fairness, the resort looks very nice!
    But for five thousand five hundred petot, pang-Punta Fuego na ang rate nila, huh!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha! I was smiling all throughout while reading this post (of course tuwa agad ako at the sight of that EB shirt… ha ha ha ha ha!) You are that bratinella who is very lovable and adorable. I’m sure that’s why Kap will never get tired of taking care of you. Nakakatuwa that the kids are having a lot of fun even if you take them to “unclassy” places. Signs of a real good upbringing!!!

    Hi, Ms. Jane! I didn’t know you were in Anilao last Undas. If I had known you were going there I should have met up with you and treat you for lunchnat Johanna’s Grill here in Bauan before you went to Anilao or before you went home. They serve one of the most mouthwatering baby back ribs that falls right of the bone. :-)

    Vista Aplaya is nice but you may want to try out Aiyanar Resort and Hotel next time you visit Anilao. It’s a bit pricier but only because they include full board meals that are buffet style. This resort is the hideaway of some celebrities. A secret mentioned to us when we stayed there for a couple of days. ;-) They also have a lot of water sports activities that your kids can engage in.

    Hope to meet you next time you visit Anilao or if I visit my in-laws in Paranaque.

    1 million pogi points for Kap! 2 million ganda points for Jana’s sexy body (grabe the discipline, I wish I have)! And, of course, Mommy Jane, ang puti ng legs!!!

    You and Kap have a very good combination which makes your kids well-rounded human being – the simplicity of Kap and the grandeur of Jane. Pwede itapat kahit kanino.

    God bless your family even more!
