Welcome to Thresher Cove
Situated along the eastern seaboard of Malapascua, Thresher Cove is just a small resort equipped with amenities you need for an absolute relaxation. Imagine yourself under the sun looking out to the crystal clear water cutting through the creamy white sand and the clear blue sky all by yourself. Yes, all by yourself. Thresher Cove is so isolated you can have an entire hundred meter of shore to run around and do whatever you want. In terms of my criteria when it comes to booking a resort/hotel, I always visit TripAdvisor to see unbiased reviews of travelers from all over the world. Thresher Cove at the time of my visit was ranked number 1 on the list which was a plus. I also considered the location and the number of things I can do without going out of the resort. And Thresher Cove gave me everything I can possibly hope for in a resort–you can have the entire beach for yourself, canoe all you want, snorkel all you want, swim all you want, play billiards, learn to scuba dive, watch movies, eat good food, and of course relax.
For you to understand where I am coming from, I broke things down for you to show why Thresher Cove should be your home whenever you are in Malapascua. Continue reading

Summer with work friends
Stunning view of the beach
To officially begin the summer season and to beat the scorching Manila sun, our company went on a summer outing at La Luz Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas.
La Luz is a privately owned resort and just recently opened to the public. It is a 4-5 hours drive from Manila via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Star tollway and a couple of Batangas towns and municipalities. It is a haven away from Manila for those who want to have a quick weekend getaway.
July 5-6, 2013 Waterfront Resort Morong, Bataan
I am not a beach person. I enjoy travelling but I am not much into beaches in particular and though I love seeing sea creatures and underwater activities I still have fear of deep waters. I have been to beaches in Palawan, Boracay, Batangas and Corregidor so I can say that I already have high expectations when it comes to that. When I saw the beach in Morong, I was really disappointed. I did not mind the blackish sand but the garbages in the water disappointed me so much. I did not travel for hours just for that. The view was nice but not the beach which was the main reason we were there. I did not dare to swim anymore because I was afraid I might get some diseases from swimming in dirty water. If there were any consolation, they were the videoke, scenic view and quiet surrounding.
Here are some of the photos I took while we were there.

Sun, sand and a whole lot of fun!
With the kids!
On my recent trip to Cebu, I decided to take my brother and cousin to Plantation Bay. I read good reviews about the resort and wanted to experience it firsthand. So regardless if the weather was gloomy that day, we still visited Plantation Bay. And it was surprisingly still full of tourists considering that it was already the rainy season in the Philippines.
RATE – The Day Tour rate at Plantation Bay is Php2,000 per person. This includes 9AM-5PM use of all facilities like shower room, game room, all the pools (kayaks), play areas (archery, wall climbing, courts), bicycle and free lunch (appetizer, main dish, dessert and drink). No need for reservations. You can just go to the resort and tell the reception staff that you are in for a Day Tour.
