Happy Birthday, Nanay!

It’s my Mom’s birthday today. We celebrated it in advance (last Sunday) because my siblings need to go to work today. It was just a simple celebration. We had kare-kare, shanghai, lomi and ice cream for lunch. But as always, we had fun. There’s never a dull moment with my siblings and cousins. Whenever we are together you can only hear “buskahan” (teasing) and laughter.
While we had our drinking spree, Nanay and Tatay enjoyed their moments with their grandchildren. It is only during these occasions that they got the chance to be with all of them.
I know, Nanay, I am always saying this but then again I want to reiterate that you are the best Mom and grandmother in the world. Happy, happy birthday and may our good Lord bless you with a thousand more moments with your grandchildren. We all love you!

Loreland Farm Resort – An Honest Review

6G’s had its summer reunion again. Because we had a short preparation, we decided to have our summer reunion somewhere in Antipolo. I suggested Loreland Farm Resort because of its enticing website and the positive reviews on the web. I must admit, I was a little disappointed when we got there. The place is relaxing but it’s not as beautiful as I expected.
Loreland Farm Resort is an 8 hectare land resort located in Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo City. It is divided into 3 phases and I should say it has complete amenities: Resto and Bar with Acoustics every Saturday night, convenience store, salon and spa, volleyball, basketball court, billiards, zip line, chapel and station of the cross.

If I counted it right, Loreland Farm has 18 swimming pools but most of them are small and they were too crowded when we went there may be because it’s still summer weekend. I don’t know if it has the same scenario during week days. And because it was a hill developed into resort, you have to take steps to access other swimming pools which are a little bit tiring.

What is good about this place is they have many big shower and comfort rooms that’s why there’s no queue inside the shower room even the place is crowded.

There are also so many cottages, cabanas, umbrellas, and resthouses for overnight accommodations. So even if you go there late, you won’t run out of affordable place to stay at.

We rented a cabana P1,300 (day tour), P1,600 (night tour). It has a papag (bed made of bamboo) inside and electric fan. I recommend this if you have babies who take naps once in a while. You can also request for a padlock but you have to deposit P200 which is refundable. Good for 8 persons.

Loreland farm though has a naturally sculpted beauty. Trees are everywhere that shade most of the pools. So if you are a nature lover who wants to unwind and after a relaxing ambiance, Loreland Farm Resort is definitely the place for you, not if you are after a good swim on big swimming pools.

Other infos: Entrance Fee – Adult P150/pax
                                           Kids (3-4ft.) P110/pax

Still, we enjoyed our day because of the great foods that each family brought. The kids enjoyed so much and that was another unforgettable day with good friends.

My Good Offline Friends

Being snobbish is always other people’s first impression of me. But I am not snob. I am just homebody that is why I seldom go out. I know all my neighbors though and I am close to few of them. But when I became a secretary of our homeowners association, I got close to these good people who were my co-officers. We were together almost everyday because of the meetings and community activities. These are my offline friends and my “kainuman”.
 We see to it that we have this bonding once in a while even without occasion.
Taken during the blessing of our new office. We faced 
many intrigues during our term that made us to be even closer.

Turn-over ceremony. Free at last from responsibilities.

Though my being secretary for than a year added wrinkles on my forehead, I am still grateful for I met these friends who are just few steps away.
