Escape Diaries: Villa Emmanuela Wave Pool & Resort

I'm not quite sure but I feel like if we were in a classroom, Bulacan sits right next to Sun! Yep, that's how hot we feel here. So on a random Saturday morning, we've decided to just screw it and find the nearest pool resort which brought us to the Villa Emmanuela Wave Pool & Resort in Poblacion.

But first, let me share some of our mishaps during that day before we ended up at this resort. We left the house around 10 in the morning but upon our arrival here, the cottages were already full. Since we were with a kid that time, the only choice we had then was to leave and consider other options. Next, we tried Cool Waves but it was also full, We also checked out this resort in Tabang which I forgot the name but it was also full. We were left with no choice but to just go back here and wait for the night time swimming. Let me tell you, my nephew's face when he finally got to swim was worth all the hassle. <3

The facade of the resort was quite impressive considering it's a simple one and it's very accessible to travelers. You can easily locate the resort since their location is near the main road of Plaridel Bulacan.

My brother even asked me to take tourist-y shot of him in the lobby/reception area of the resort.

They had a vendo machine and their staffs are friendly. Additionally, if you need help in inflating some of the pool items you brought along, they could help you with that.  

Now, brace yourselves for cuteness overload on these photos!

Despite the scorching heat of the sun, my nephew still manages to smile for the camera.

How can you not adore this little one?

We waited until 5:30 in the afternoon before we were allowed to go inside the resort. The hut that we rented would not be available until that time. Good thing that there's a shade in the lobby so we were not really waiting under the heat of the sun. They have several cottages that you can rent ranging from 500-3,000 pesos depending on your preferences.

But the long wait was all worth it! Look at this little one's smiling face!

We learned a very important summer lesson on that day: Always be early! :)) Especially if you know it's a holiday and resorts are expecting a lot of travelers. :) Overall, I definitely recommend this resort to anyone who's looking for a quick and simple way to beat the summer heat.

Much Love,

Adventure Awaits!

As I was browsing for some new wallpapers to use for my phone, I stumbled upon a quote that says "Take every chance you get in life, because some things only happen once.". I may have a strong personality but most days, I'm really scared to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. That is probably why most of the time I choose to keep a toxic job, with a toxic boss, and toxic people at the same time. But after going through a lot of bad times, unhappy moments, and a couple of worst scenarios -- I've decided to chase adventure!

I wanted to share the complete details but I'm afraid this isn't the right time yet. I just wanted to share that despite everything that God has put me and my family through earlier this year, a couple of blessings came right after! Opportunities kept coming in and out and I just can't help but grab each of them. I am truly grateful that a comforting and loving God runs my life. 

"When it rains, look for rainbows. When it's dark, look for stars."
God has always been so faithful. I can't wait to start this new adventure but of course, I need to do a lot of preparations first. Ugh, I'm dying to share with everyone what it is that I am talking about but for sure, as soon as everything is all set, I will definitely write it down here.

P.S. - I still want to meet Atom Araullo.
