Poracay Resort

Poracay Resort is where we went to for my baby's 34th birthday. Since baby can't take a leave off work, we just went to a resort near her place. Porac is just an hour away from the City of San Fernando. We took the Gapan-Olangapo route going to Porac interchange and it was no surprise when we approached the road going to Poracay Resort became extremely rough. As you may already know, Porac was one of the many municipalities in Pampanga greatly devastated by ashfall and lahar from Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The Mt. Pinatubo eruption left tons of sand deposits. The sand deposits became the boundless natural resource of the people of Porac and the symbol to the town's resiliency toward tragedy. Actually, Filipinos are known for being resilient individuals. (Marunong tayong bumangon sa kahit anong trahedya, with a smile pa yan ha!)

Anyway, we got there around 4:00 in the afternoon. As expected, the resort wasn't jam-packed since it was weekday. Before plunging into the pool, we roamed around to check the entire resort. They have kayak and fishing, zipline ride and other fun and exciting activities that you can do with your family and friends. Swimming pools are everywhere. Just make sure to always keep an eye on your little ones though there are lifeguards on duty in the area. It's always better to be safe than sorry! Overall, I liked the place except from the bumpy road we have had to take going there.

Pinkberry Alabang Town Center

My baby and I just discovered a new place to satiate our fro-yo (frozen yoghurt) cravings, Pinkberry. Pinkberry is located at Corte De Las Palmas in Alabang Town Center. We both just love eating frozen yoghurt and it was the main reason why we gave in. The place is pretty small but it definitely gives out a clean and youthful vibe.

We went for the small-sized plain yoghurt (Php 110) 'cause the small-sized cup with toppings costs Php 165( Wala ng budget eh, haha!). It was good but kind of sweet for my taste buds though. But I'm planning to go back with my baby real soon. We'd love to try the other yoghurt flavors and perhaps some smoothies too to beat the scorching hot weather.
