Me, my mom and relatives spend the Christmas on Blue Coral Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. First time ko sa Blue Coral pero second time ko na sa Laiya. My first was in La Luz Beach Resort where we had our branch outing with my previous employer.
Among Batangas beaches that I've been, I think Laiya is the most promising. It may not endowed with the golden sand of Puerto Gallera and the finest sand of Boracay but for me its semi-white sand is still worth a try for beach bumming for only two and a half hours trip from Manila.
We arrived there afternoon of the 24th.
We hurried to the beach after we had our merienda. The wave was a bit strong and the water was freakin' cold. I was shivering the moment I took a dip.
We cant stand the coldness of the sea water kaya lumipat kami sa pool. Swimming kami until the night falls. Ayoko pa sanang umalis sa tubig dahil sobrang namiss ko magswimming (ng hindi marunong lumangoy) at ine-enjoy ko ang pageemo pero nagutom ako.

We had our buffet dinner by 7pm. No other options, buffet lang talaga and I dont know why. Kahit sa La Luz ganon din ang set up. Buffet ang breakfast, lunch and dinner. We paid 1,200 pesos each for the three buffet meals. Its kinda expensive for a so so taste of the foods.
After dinner tumambay kami sa tree house. Ang saya dahil may free Wifi sa buong resort.

Kasalukuyan akong may kainuman virtually. Alam nyo na kung sino kayo ;)
Busy preparing the food, I forgot to take photos but we had spaghetti, cake, salad and bread. We were supposed to have our noche buena on the beach but my cousin's first born threw tantrums and we cant just leave them inside the room while we're eating by the beach. Kaya ayun, ang ending sa veranda kami kumain. But it was still fun!
After eating nag-aya ng totoong inom si cousin and we went to the bar and after, to the beach.

We woke up early morning of the 25th, had breakfast and swimming again.

After our lunch, by 1pm we leave the resort and drove back to Manila to be with the rest of the family na hindi nakasama. That's how I spent my Christmas. How about you?
I want to thank all blogger friends who exerted their effort to greet last Christmas. Alam nyo na kung sino kayo. I will make a separate post for it. Baka kasi may humabol pa for New Year para isang post na lang hehe. For the meantime eto muna. Gusto ko rin sanang um-effort na i-greet kayong lahat like doing a picture greeting, kaya lang sobrang busy talaga kaya hanggang tweet, text at status na lang muna. Promise babawi ako next year.
Pasensya naman kung hindi ko nabibisita ang mga blogs nyo these past few days. Ang dami lang talagang ginagawa at kelangang unahin. Alam ko naman na busy rin kayo this Holiday season kaya alam ko na naiintindihan nyo. Pero pag may time nagbabasa naman ako hindi nga lang ako makapag-iwan ng comment minsan. Makakabawi din.
