Because our summer wasn’t eventful, the waters actually became the kids’ go-to destination. And they usually go with, or bring along, friends so of course every single time, I had to go too. Sino mag-aasikaso sa kanila diba. Mommy duties. GAH!
Hindi ako magpapanggap. I am just a pointer sister. :P We need one of our angels to cook & clean. Taga turo lang ako.
Taal Lake is always a favorite with Kap because..
1.) The rooms don’t cost a lot. A single room with a queen bed & aircon (common bathroom) is 950 php/night plus kuryente bill. A family room is 2,500 php/night also with aircon & 2 queen beds plus own bathroom. Mura nga, hindi lang kagandahan.
First off, 26 Sta. Maria Resort is NOT beachfront kasi nga lakeside. :P So if you’re thinking of sand, sea, and lounging around -this location is NOT for you. If you don’t have a boat, or you are not planning on renting a boat, swimming is not advisable because ma-lumot sobra. Pag-ahon mo si dugong ka na. To fully enjoy this resort, you must either bring your own boat, or rent one so you can “island hop”. Otherwise all you can do is throw frisbees around, cook, and have a picnic.
“Islang hopping” in Taal. You have to venture out in your boat for picture-worthy photos. Most of the guests bring their boats. You have to call Walter/Dang in advance for motorized boat rentals (read: not speedboat).
26 Sta. Maria Resort. Taal Lake, talisay Batangas. Ask for Walter (owner) or Dang (manager) +63917 6459448.
Ate brought along her gym buddies on our last trip. <3
2.) Kap can bring his speed(less) boat & toys for the big boys. :P and my Babyson can wakeboard all day -his current passion.
Alam nyo, may kayabangan din itong binata ko. @_@ And his dad enables him.
Ang kunsintidor na ama! :|
3.) You bring your own food to picnic so tipid since we won’t be eating in restaurants.
Thank you so much to SOT & SARS for the yummy pasalubong! <3 Sot promised me a Big Mac & boy did he deliver. Special talaga seeing there was no nearby McDo. It satisfied my almost-daily craving. Thank you Sot! :-* And maaaaan! These mallow-filled cookies are THE BOMB! Sars was the one who made my Ms. Piggy Mother’s Day cake, you remember that right? Do visit her Facebook page, PATEACHERIE, HERE to order super yummy cookies & cakes. Thank you Sars, these cookies were the highlight of my dinner! <3
When slumming it, masarap mag-kamay! Yumness to okra with alamang! \m/
I like getting to know my kids’ friends. I’m happy that they feel comfy enough with us to wanna eat together. :) Wala din naman silang choice eh kasi iisa ang mesa HAHAHA!
4.) Meanwhile, the girls like to go not for the thrill of it, but for the million & one selfies & we-fies! ;))
Selfies! Me: Look here Bae. Lovey: No mommy just continue taking pictures even if I’m not looking para candid. Me: Ooohhh. May ganyan! ;))
And we-fies! Photoshoot ang nangyari.
Ate actually tried wake boarding. Kaso ayaw ng tadhana..
Kaya nagmuni-muni at nag-FHM pose nalang sya..
I also tried doing the same pose. Kaso ayaw din ng tadhana! ;)) Kay Kap my Kap lang pumasa. Kaya lumubog na lang ako sa tubig, to drown my sorrows away. #NapakasakitKuyaEddie
Thank you so much Honey for doing your best to make it a fun summer for everyone. Pasasaan ba’t maiikot din natin ang mundo. #GOppetsTakeTheWorld <3
