| Birthday @ La Luz
|we celebrated hubby’s birthday last Feb 10-11 at La Luz in Batangas with our 2 best friends, Jing & Bodj. and boy, it was rrreallyyy FUN! =)
hubby, lil boy and me left the house around 530am. basta mga gimikan kasi, laging early kami ni hubby, excited kasi, hehe. we fetched Jing and Bodj by 6am. around 7am, we were already having breakfast at Pancake House, Petron Stn, SLEX.
the resort was quite far, more than 3 hours from Manila. and the last 4km was rough road, so medyo kawawa ang bagong tires ng van namin, hay! it was a long ride, buti na lang we’re at the company of wacky friends, kaya it wasn’t boring at all. pati yung instruction guide eh naging katatawanan sa amin.
we arrived at La Luz past 10am. we first stayed sa cabanas while waiting for our room check-in time of 1pm.
and here is my lil boy with the new basketball i bought. hanggang sa tubig ay basketball pa din ang type nya.
we were allowed to check-in earlier, around 1130am. ang kaso, when i entered the room, wala pa dun yung surprise balloons ko for hubby. i made an arrangement kasi with them to put blue balloons in our room, para pag pasok ni hubby, ma-surprise sya. kaya lang, ako ang na-surprise kasi nga empty ang room, hay. nasa Bayan pa daw kasi yung balloons. kasi daw nag-early check-in kami kaya di pa nailagay. hello, sila kaya nagsabi na mag-check in na kami. anyway, ok lang, atleast we’ve already settled in our room na.
then buffet lunch at 12nn. the food was ok, lutong bahay with 4 viands, juice and dessert.
after lunch, nauna na sa verandah si hubby with lil’ boy and Bodj. i instructed him to take pictures of my surprise. then i got the cake na tinago ko kay hubby mula sa bahay namin. and Jing got the balloons also from their office.
then surprised hubby na with a Happy Birthday song, complete with the cake and balloons. he was so surprised and happy. =)
we ate the chocolate cake after, it was so yummy. kaya lang medyo matapang yung icing kaya we all turned ‘blue’.
mukhnag papel de hapon daw ang ginamit na pang-sulat dun kaya ang tindi ng color, haha.
then went out and had fun in the sun. we stayed sa mga umbrellas sa beachfront. and we had the life we wanted. oh, “this is life” talaga kami dun while resting, playing, eating chips, drinking shakes, swimming, laughing, having fun and taking tons of pictures like these:
breastfeeding while surfing =)
happy lil' boy
in no time, it was merienda buffet again by 4pm. sarap talaga, buhay baboy na naman. =)
after eating, nagpa-massage kami for an hour while lil’ boy was playing beside us. buti nga hindi na sya umiiyak now eh, not like sa Bora before, ayaw nya na i-massage kami kasi akala nya siguro sinasaktan kami, hehe.
then at 7pm, dinner time na naman.
after that, may bonfire kaya we stayed out for awhile.
then back to our room and chika and tawanan forever. then we gave na our gift to Bodj, birthday din kasi nya last 01/31 eh.
after that, their gift to hubby naman.
ang gwagwapo nila sa mga new shirts nila. =)
then lil’ boy’s gift to his Papa and my gift to hubby too. i gave hubby a Nike gray polo shirt. lil' boy has exactly the same shirt. so when i saw it, binili ko na agad kay hubby para terno silang dalawa.
huli kong pinabuksan yung gift ni lil’ boy because that’s the best gift eh.
it’s a collection of their pictures from the day lil’ boy was born. it was so cute and hubby got a little emotional while looking at the pics. with matching background music pa ako na “it’s not time to make a change, just relax, take it easy”. kaso ako ang kumakanta kaya naging comedy. hahaha.
after eating midnight snacks and kwentuhan, we finally slept around 12mn. then woke up at 730am for breakfast.
02/11, ate buffet breakfast, then swimming agad. ok sana ang LaLuz kaya lang mabato ang beach nya. as in literal na bato ang aapakan mo sa beach, instead of sand. it’s really bundok kasi na ginawa nilang resort. so they just transported the sand para maging beach ang dating. but then, when you go in the beach water na, mabato pa talaga. so you need to wear your aqua shoes to enjoy. kasi kami, super bagal namin sa paglalakad kasi takot kaming madapa at magasgasan ng rocks, lalo na di pa masyadong kita kasi nga nasa tubig ka na. one thing more, you can’t swim freely kasi baka mauntog ka sa mga bato. so we didn’t enjoy the beach as much as we wanted to. pero ok na lang din, kasi enjoy naman kami sa tawanan eh. at pagtawanan yung mga nasa paligid namin, haha. 'bitch' nga eh! =)
around 1030 am, we’re preparing na for check-out. but we still had our additional buffet lunch before we finally left the resort around 1pm.
pagdating sa Lipa, stop-over kami agad sa ChowKing para mag-halo halo as dessert, hehe. aliw pa kasi nakita pa namin yung 3 groups na galing din sa La Luz eating there also.
super busog kami, kaya pagsakay sa van, tulog lahat. except for hubby who was driving, wawa naman. i tried to drive, kaya lang, ilang minutes pa lang eh umiyak na si lil’ boy, gusto na nya ulit sa akin at si Papa na daw ang mag-drive, kaya ayun, no choice si hubby. =(
diretso kaming lahat sa Proj. 4 to hear Sunday mass at 5pm. after that, hinatid na sila and uwe na din kami. it was tiring, but ALL fun!
overall, La Luz is okay. the facilities, ambience, food and service are all great. we just love the umbrellas, the relaxing atmosphere and the privacy. we just don’t like the beach, although maganda sa background yung mga bato-bato dun, hehe. but definitely, we had fun. it was all worth it. and the best kasi ang mga kasama namin kaya talagang it was a Blast! =)
