where would you rather be? in a crowded, noisy, polluted city? or...

ang saya pala mag-beach... we've never been big fans of the beach, but this year, ever since our bora trip last feb, we've been daydreaming about going back and soaking up some sun, breathing in some fresh air, snorkeling to admire marine life, jet-skiing, knocking back a few brewskies, pigging out on barbecue, telling ghost stories around a campfire, and yes, even getting a tan! (but only with SPF 70.) and of course actually swimming in the ocean! it's quite therapeutic. we got to do all that last week (hence the absence from the blog world. there was no globe signal where we were, so our visibility was useless). but the best part was just relaxing, hangin' out with people you like, making kwentuhan, and forgetting about your fast-paced, stressed-out life in manila. even if just for three days. well, this time we didn't fly all the way to boracay but drove to nearby batangas. we stayed at a place called palm beach, and because we stayed during the weekday, we had the place to ourselves... of course, there was the occasional beachcomber... locals making fruit and vegetable deliveries... kids on their way home from school... babies keeping a safe distance from the big crashing waves... and since we promised to meet our deadline, we actually took some work with us (spoil sport! killjoy! party pooper!). but if our office looked like this, we wouldn't mind going everyday! even on weekends! palm beach resort, barrio hugom, san juan, batangas; palmbeach-hugom.com

i'm not a fan of the beach myself, but if i were to go to one, ganyan gusto ko, yung walang tao. kung meron man, taga-dyan sila. :)

mrs. T: thank you! it's nice to get a compliment for our photos instead of complaints, haha!

pezfrio: we totally agree!
