Sunset Beach

I must say that this is one of the most unforgettable reunion I had attended. And why not? First, I am not guilty about it ’cause it has Shaun’s consent, second, I didn’t pulled out much cash, just for the fare and our re-union contribution, third, there was no awkward moment during that night, ’cause I was with the boys, (well, don’t get me wrong girls,  I just don’t like staying in our cottage and just talk about things and thugs) and lastly, it was awesome! I really had a great time..

Anyway, it was more like of a get together sort to think, ’cause out of  100+ graduates of my batch, only 20 people more or less had attended, and not more than 5 were classmates, meaning we are of different sections, and add to that we don’t have something in common to talk about. But that night it was filled with laughter and individual experiences of what happened to us after graduation, we do have little topic of our elementary though, about the famous bullies of our batch and the popular peps during that time, never forget the one being bullied… LOL! and hearing it from the boys, it was crazy!


D’Leonor Inland Resort & Adventure Park

Let me start my blog of what had happen to us today, take note this is not a review about the place but rather our experience during our team building

First thing first, we’ve decided from our meeting the day before that we will meet up at Gaisano Mall, para from there sabay-sabay nami padulong sa De’Leonor.
First to arrived was Suzy, then ako, then si sir Gab and Mark, next was Arbie and then Roselyn and Sheila last. We were waiting Jhai and Noch when an accident happened ‘nong padulong na sila ug Gmall. Ana sa text, na banggaan ug kotse sila noch and jhai and naa sila sa Davao Doc.
Suzy decided na mo adto sa Davao doc and mo una nalang mi sa deleonor, but out of guilt, alangan naman na mag lingaw2 mi ug una while naa mi isa ka team na na accidente. 
Anyway, we’d waited for the result sa medical ni noch, and when it’s ok na, we pursue our team building.
We hired a Buhangin route multicab to deliver as straight to DeLeonor. I never thought na ang dalan paduong deleonor kay sa Esperanza, first name na nag sulod sa ako mind kay si Rhea one of my best friend.
Anyway, when we’re there…. the pictures speaks for itself na, it is arranged from the moment we got there ’til the last minute…

Bali-Bali Beach Resort

It was my first time to attend our company’s summer party, ’cause as stupid as it sounds,  it was also the first time our company had a summer party.

It was held in Bali-Bali resort, and first thought about the name it sounds to me like “to invert your clothes when you’re lost” sort of nah, I’ve never heard of such resort before, though. But guess what, I’ve made a little research and found out that the theme of the resort was taken from a place in Indonesia, called Bali. It all explained why they named such. Another point that this resort does not entertain walk-ins, so better book ahead if you’re interested. 

The place is so nice, though mommy Sugar (Sylvette), Suzy (Katherine) and me arrived twilight, and most of the views are in shade of black (thanks for the lights).

And there’s a tradition (should I say) that if it was your first time to be in a beautiful place, you should make a wish so that you can come back to that place (actually I’m not quite sure about that) in which, obviously, I did.

Anyway, enough of the introduction, go back to the topic!

We arrived twilight, right? don’t ask why I have pictures of the morning and mid-day views of the resort, and the activities that had happened prior to our arrival, I’d just grabbed them from the internet and our company’s page, simple as

Okay, enough I said! just go through the caption of each picture as your guide for the event… see you in the last part of this post… enjoy!

Manaklay Beach and Kopiat Island

Before you browse the pictures I just want to inform you that all the pictures below are not mine, that I don’t own any of them. I just grab them from the internet. You may wonder why, it is because when we’re there I didn’t have any camera available and the only camera I have was from my phone, which only had an AVG resolution, I do take pictures of the place though, but trust me it doesn’t look nice. so better keep it in the pandora box.
You may wonder where on earth is Manaklay Beach, well, here’s a map:
5mi zoom
1mi zoom

When we arrived at Manaklay Beach, it was almost 5 pm.

Entrance view of the beach
we didn’t waste our time, and after we settle our things, we immediately take a plunge at the clear blue water. 

view from a nipa cottage located in an extended platform of the beach
It was out of plan since the only food we’d brought was mostly junk foods and some fruits bought along the way.

the beach from the sea
When you’re in Manaklay beach facing the sea, you will see an Island, maybe 100 – 200 meters from the shore, locals call it Lapanday Island, but on google it’s Kopiat Island.
Anyway, I really don’t have any idea, that the island can be visited, ’cause according to the locals, it’s a private island owned by the Lapanday (but it’s not that big deal to talk about), so we’ve decided to take a banca ride off the island that costs Php 20.00 per head, for such amount you can have a round trip ride of the island.
We could have enjoyed the experience if we arrived in Manaklay earlier, ’cause as what the banca driver said, we can have a whole day stay on the Island if we wanted to. 
Upon our banca tour of the island, I would describe the island like a virgin island, you will not see any house on the shore or even if you further deepen your look of the foresty part. 
The shore line is mostly covered with washed trees from floods somewhere, talk about it like big trees, or roots of trees washed on the shore.

one of the banca that will ride you to the island, back views is Mabini, Comval

This is what I’m talking about.. no glimpse of house, just coconut trees..

A group of local tourists off to Kopiat Island

The island’s shoreline is mostly corals, and the only white sand there is where tourist can take stay

We take a swim for only 15 minutes of less, as the banca driver said, we have to go since the waves are starting to stronger.

Next pictures is more of the Manaklay Beach:
