Random Clicks: Munting Buhangin Beach Camp, Nasugbu, Batangas Revisited

My photo taken by my travel buddy. I am not wearing an appropriate beach attire, again.

It was five years ago when I first visited Munting Buhangin Beach Camp in Nasugbu, Batangas together with my two friends. It was a random trip borne out of boredom. Yesterday, my travel buddy and I only planned to have lunch in Tagaytay City but we ended up driving to Batangas. We initially thought of going to a resort we haven't visited yet, in fact, we inquired at Canyon Cove--but we ended up in Munting Buhangin again...

The white sand beach that is overlooked by a neighbor members only resort--Terrazas De Punta Fuego.

Me waiting for the sun to set  in one of the tents.
I noticed they added more tents to accommodate day tour guests. They were also painting and repairing cottages as one of the preparations for the summer vacation.

The same nipa cottages that are lined up on the beach are still there.
The entrance fee for day tour is Php180 but if you want to have a meal included, you will have to pay Php350. They have a different rate during holidays. They have a restaurant beside the information area where you can have quick snacks in case you went on a trip without foods (like us).

It was a Monday so there were only around five guests who alternate go on swimming, kayaking and riding a banana boat. It made me wish my day off would be every Monday. Haha!

The same gorgeous sunset......

It is a family friendly beach resort. They also have air conditioned villas if you will spend a night or two there. The cost per day is around Php8,000 for 10 to 15 persons. They also have a function room for 30 to 40 persons and obstacle course if you want to have a team building seminar. Aside from kayak and banana boat ride, the resort also has other sports and recreational facilities for volleyball, table tennis, dart, basketball. You can also rent a boat for Php1,500 (good for 10 persons) for an island hopping adventure and snorkeling.

Random Clicks: Kaybiang Tunnel, Maragondon

This is a late post.

Before the start of the first regular work-day of the new year, my family and I went to Kaybiang Tunnel in Maragondon, Cavite. It is a new road that leads to Nasugbu, Batangas. This is not a regular road-tunnel, though... it is the first in Cavite. It boasts a spectacular view of the South China Sea and the mountainous side of Cavite. When it was formally opened last year by President Noynoy Aquino, it opened a new gate for adventure seekers like me.

It is around 40 minutes drive from our house. There is no traffic. When we got there, there were a bunch of motorcycle riders going to and fro the tunnel. There were also families who pull over from time to time to take pictures of the magnificent view.

This photo was taken halfway through the tunnel. My son enjoyed screaming and hearing his echo.

That's me. Obviously, the tunnel is 96 kilometers away from the Rizal Park in Manila. This photo was taken from the Nasugbu side of the tunnel.

A little statistics here, the vertical clearance of the tunnel is 4.85 meters. How amazing are those lush trees?

The downhill zigzag road will make any nature-loving person enjoy the view. On the left is the mountain and on the right is the sea.

That's the sea I am talking about. And that's me breaking-in my new iPhone 5c. Haha!

You can see from afar the blue water and white sand waiting for us.

How much did we spend for this trip? Six hundred pesos only for gasoline. What is the reward? This view!

On Wisdom

I am currently studying for my comprehensive exam on the 18th. It is one of the requirements for me to finish my MBA. It has been twice postponed and I am hoping that it will not affect my thesis timetable. 

While having a hot chocolate drink break from studying, I read the bible for some inspiration. 

By surrendering our lives to Him and to His will, we get to understand how our faith works in our lives.

New Year, New Life

I have a lot of things to be thankful for, the first one would be I am still alive today to greet the new year. Last year was a breaking point for me, to re-think about the life I wanted to be for me and for my child. Although there were many disappointments, the blessings that were given to me are more than enough for me not to hold grudges. I got promoted, I think it was the best part.

So, what will 2014 have for me... I bet, it's still the best!

Happy new year to all! God bless us!
