Same time last year, I was already counting down the days to my vacation.
But now, all I can do is wait and be patient. At least for a few more months. Not that I'm complaining. I am actually thrilled that we will be spending Christmas and New Year in the Philippines again with our family. I just can't wait to go as if my body clock has set this time as vacation time after two consecutive years of going in the same month. If only I can drag the days faster, I would.
My kids (well we) are missing everyone and we can't wait to see all of them again.
This was taken in a private resort we rented for a day in Pansol, Calamba Laguna, (where hot spring resorts are famous), while we were having lunch-boodle fight style at the rooftop (3rd floor) of the resort.
We had the whole resort to ourselves. It was like a vacation house with five or six air-conditioned rooms with an ensuite toilets and showers. It has a swimming pool, kitchen with stove and fridge, shower room, videoke machine, billiards table, and a grill. All you have to bring is food, refreshments and loads of fun.
There are many private resorts in this area but to be honest, I couldn't remember the name of the resort we rented, it was my sister-in-law who did the booking for us.
What I do remember is that we paid half the price because it was off-peak. And yet we enjoyed the same amenities and the same incredible views.
Not all of the private resorts in Pansol have hot springs, most of them have private pools. If you are after dipping in a real hot spring pool, make sure to check with the resort if it is available.
If you are looking for a place to take your family around Calamba Laguna, this is still a very good option for a day of bonding.
We had a good time here, and I'm sure you will too. Sharing with you some more of our photos in the resort with my husband's side of the family.
We really miss everyone. We hope to see you all very soon.
If you are wondering, we got the crabs from here.
We spotted the stall on our way to buy some fresh fruits.
and the fresh fruits were from here.
