The trip back to the Philippines this year has definitely had some impact on the direction of my life. It was over a telephone conversation to Mr H back in the UK that I realised that I was really happy here. I mean, really really happy. When people say you should do what makes you happy, being by the beach definitely trips that switch.
This is where my dad put me (at two weeks old!) into the sea (I like to think that was my baptism). This is where I grew up. And this is where I got married.
I am so glad that when my brother and I left the nest my mom went home to the Philippines to start up her beach resort, Blue Bay Waters in Sariaya, Quezon. Not only is she doing what she loves, but she has created a home not only for us, but for weary travellers looking for some peace while exploring the beautiful provinces of the Philippines.
A totally family run business, we enjoy experimenting with the possibilities :) Some of us spent some time fooling about with the internet connections and Wifi. Bundok style! Of course, we had to. Our generation are all techies and can’t be that far from the internet. Glad to say there’s Wifi everywhere now, in the cottages and by the beach! Yar! *geeky pleasure*
Our beautiful beach at low tide and the gorgeous views. It’s so sweet to watch the guests’ children run around the dunes, picking up seashells and squealing in delight when they see a tiny fish or sand crab skittering about. Reminds me of me when I was a kid ^_^
It was great to see our family and friends again. We caught up with the happenings of each others lives while swimming and over good food, drinks, karaoke and even amazing lightning over the sea.
This was the view of the beach when I went out for some early morning surf. It was like the world was saying: Good morning!
Coming home is nothing without the amazing food. I ate so much seafood it was ridiculous. Even better than the seafood you get in some hotels in Manila. Lobsters, shrimps, squid, crab everywhere. And then all the filipino goodies like tocino, adobo, crispy pata…
I need to go back. Just waiting to find out what’s happening in the next 6-8 months before booking another ticket. And then hopefully one day, that ticket will be one way.
