If there is one question I get to asked myself during summer it has to be the same question asked by my friends “where to go this summer?”.  Every summer I wish I could go somewhere near the beach preferably a beach with white powdery sand. Money is always a hindrance why I always end up just wishing and planning. I may have done something good last year since the fairy godmother granted my wish this time. Well, its not really the fairy godmother (I am overacting) but my boyfriend.

It happened last May 20-21 2017. The boyfriend made sure that it will be one of the trip I will treasure for the rest of my life. I was surprised when he asked me to make a budget for four person. At first I could contain my happiness knowing that my son, Mom and nephew is going with me. Less than a month before the planned trip I was asking Mr Google where to go. A resort with white sand beach is on top of my list. For some reason Boracay was not in my list as of that moment. My search landed me to some beach resort in Bantayan Island. After checking from one resort to another and reading reviews from those who visited the resort I choose Anika Island Resort. Well, there actually few things that made me decide to booked Anika Island Resort. Aside from the positive reviews about the resort is that they have a menu list posted on their website which is a plus for me because I can actually make our budget before we go on our trip. Of course I do not want to run out of money and starve while we are on trip. Hahahahaha…

The boyfriend booked Anika’s Sunrise View Villa for Php3,300 good for 3 person and Garden View Villa for Php 2,500 good for 2 person for two days and one night via Agoda. Extra matress is available for Php500 per night. I, my son and my son’s aunt stayed in Sunrise View Villa while my Mom and nephew stayed in the Garden View Villa with my cousin and nephew. We requested an extra matress for my cousin.

Twas passed one o’clock in the afternoon when we arrived. The sun was shinning brightly that I feel like jumping in the pool as soon as we stepped out from the resort van. By the way we were picked up by the resort service which was good because we traveled comfortably going to the resort although it is only a few kilometer away from the pier. A welcome drink was serve as soon as we arrive and after checking in we decided to ate our late lunch. After taking a short rest we roamed around the resort and I figured the imagines I saw online was not photoshopped. The picturesque view of the sea touching the blue sky is magistic. How I wished we stayed longer so we can visit other resorts.

No doubt our trip to Bantayan will remain in our mind forever. I would also say that our stay in Anika Island Resort was fantastic. The four hours trip is worth it. The Villas are just few meters away from the powdery white sandy beachfront. The rooms are well maintained and the staff are accommodating and courteous. They are easy to approached. The food are great and considering the resort is located in an island they offer affordable prices for all the foods, drinks and snacks.  I wished I didn’t change my mind and stayed for 2 nights instead of 1 night only. But then again it was an unforgettable experience.

If given a chance I will surely visit the place again and I will certainly stay longer. Hopefully I will be with the boyfriend when it happens.

Going To a Fiesta

I and my friend will attend a fiesta celebration in an hour two. Fiesta celebration is mostly celebrated during the months of April and May. In fact you can witness some places having the same fiesta for one day and almost everyday. On fiesta it is common to see some folks having a drink and singing. Filipinos are known for being a music lover so expect almost everybody loves vedioke.

Apart from vedioke you can also see some folks playing guitars while singing.Talking about guitar you might want checking out Guitar Center, gibson sg special, I am certain you be interested of getting one.

Cool Kids: Kids Clothing Brands That Your Little Ones Will Love

In the first few years of their lives, your children’s clothes are going to be pretty much exclusively chosen by you. Whether they’re too young to understand or simply too young to care, your kids are likely to be happy to wear anything that you put them in. However, as they get older, you may well find that your little ones start having more of an interest in the clothes that they wear. This tends to happen once they start school and have the desire for a little bit more independence. For some parents, this can be a tough time since it’s easy to feel like your children are pulling away. However, this actually gives you an opportunity to help your little ones understand the kinds of clothes that they could and should be wearing to make sure that they are comfortable as well as fashionable. To help you and your kids get the best possible idea of the kinds of clothes that they might want to wear, here are some kids clothing brands that you’re both sure to love!

Kenzo Kids

While they might not be the best value clothes around, Kenzo clothing for kids are well worth the price tag! With a combination of incredibly well-made garments with some exciting and unique patterns with a distinctive Japanese style. With unique items in both boy’s and girl’s styles, your little one’s are sure to find something that they really love!

Indikidual

Want some fashion that’s going to fire your little one’s imagination? Then it’s hard to go wrong with Indikidual! With bright colors and creative patterns, your kids are sure to find something that they love in this amazing range of clothes. Not only that but the price isn’t that high, despite the high quality of all of the items that they sell.

The Mini Classy

The Mini Classy definitely has the right name because these are some of the coolest kids clothes around! With their signature harem pants, that celebrity parents like Kourtney Kardashian love to dress their little ones in; there are few clothing brands around with as much street cred as The Mini Classy!

Primary

Of course, you might be more interested in getting back to basics with your little one’s clothing. Primary does just that. There clothing might seem incredibly simple, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not also incredibly stylish. Not only that but these clothes are both hard wearing and incredibly comfortable. Meaning that your kids will look good, feel good, and you’re not going to be stuck having to replace their entire wardrobe every few months because they’ve worn a hole in every piece of clothing that they own.

Of course, you may find that your kids simply don’t care about fashion at all and that’s okay! If they’d rather dress like a superhero or a firefighter than a runway model that’s totally fine! The important thing is that they are comfortable and happy, which is worth more than any pieces of clothing could ever be!
