Take me somewhere I can breathe

This is the second part of our Pangasinan Adventure. The original plan of our getaway was just actually to stay and camp in Hundred Islands. Three days before the event, as I was browsing some tagged photos in facebook, I saw a nice beach photo of my friend who happened to visit hundred islands and other beaches in Pangasinan last year. I asked her where this beautiful beach located. I then gooogled it to find more information about the beach.I learned that it's just 1 hour away from Alaminos (town where hundred islands is located). Oh yeah. right there and then, the itinerary was changed.

The place is so breathtaking. This is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen so far.It has the beauty of crystal clear water and the sand is so fine.  An idyllic place for a summer getaway. We're so lucky to have found this paradise!

My friends and I haven't taken a break for some time now and the idea of having a beach getaway or something like it made us more excited. Last summer we hit Zambales and discovered the beauty of Anawangin cove and Capones Island and for this year we decided to go North, way way up to Pangasinan. We really wanted to see those hundred islands since they were always mentioned in "Sibika at Kultura" as part of "Magagandang Tanawin sa Pilipinas".
Indeed, those hundred islands are truly wonderful!

We did island hopping, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, picture taking, etc.
It feels so good to be with your closest friends on a summer getaway!
We had so much fun!!!

summer lovin'


Finally we're done with the itinerary for our summer getaway. Like what I mentioned before we are planning to explore hundred islands in a couple of days. I'm dying to hit the beach but for now I'll settle for pools.hihi. Good thing I live near the private pool capital of the Philippines so we can just rush on the pool if we want to. I also realized that it's been a long time since I went thrifting. I'm busy with other stuff and forgot to do my monthly duty.hihi. Maybe this weekend. Can't wait to "ukay" clothes for summer!

I'm trying to ignore the sweltering summer heat and just enjoy the fun it brings. Summer makes us suffer and also like it.

My friends came over to spend their holy week with me. It would be so impractical to go home (province) since it's miles away. We just watched movies and cooked the traditional foods for holy week. And today we decided to chill at a nearby pool resort. It was so much fun. chill chill lang. :)
