Summer Getaway at Pinamuntugan Island

Pinamuntugan Island has very light sand, though it's not white. But the water is bluish-green. When we were swimming the current was quite strong in some parts that we were being tossed in the water like dolls.

The Breathtaking Aguirangan Island

It took my breath away! Its 1.5-hectare formation with white beach and crystal clear waters was so beautiful!

Jelly Fish: The Rarely Seen Beauty Under the Sea

Have you ever seen a jellyfish up close? I have. I think it's one of the most beautiful creatures of the sea.

The Orange Gumamela

I found these at my sister's backyard. It was early morning and they still had dew drops on them that I could not resist taking some pictures. These pictures were taken using my Samsung Galaxy Y phone. They're quite clear aren't they? One of the reasons why I'm happy with my Galaxy Y is that it allows me to take impromptu pictures anywhere!

Anyway, I've always been fascinated by Gumamelas. I think they are beautiful.  My favorite is the red gumamela but I these orange ones look gorgeous too! These orange ones are so plump thanks to my Mother. She takes care of the plants really well. She has quite a green thumb!

Family Getaway at The Village!

The Village Entrance
Before the summer vacation ended, our family decided to have a little out-of-town escapade! June is the start of classes for the kids and also for the teachers so there would less chances to just simply pack up and go somewhere. Lots of things have to be considered before we can take time away so, we decided to have one last hurrah for the summer!

We decided to go to a place called The Village in Camarines Sur. It's actually called The Village at San Bernardino. This place is located in Calabanga, Camarines Sur. I first saw this place at my friend's Facebook page and I thought it looked great so I suggested it to my sister. She liked it too that's why we decided we're going there some time in the future. The chance came sooner.

The place was very relaxing, it was far from the city so it was really quiet and peaceful there. It's the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city! Some parts of The Village are still a work-in-progress but I'm pretty sure they're going to be awesome when finished.
