I don't want to go home yet!

My daughter cried when we told her that it's time to go home. Our experience at Baler was truly a memorable one. We are captured by it's beauty and charm that our hearts yearn to come back soon.

Learning to surf

It's not only the kids who enjoyed the waves of Sabang Beach, Baler, Aurora. We adults had our dose of fun as well.

Learning to surf is a tough challenge for me. After my first session, my whole body ached the next day, but it didn't stopped me from trying again until I was able to stand on the board on every command of my patient surfing instructor. It was a memorable experience and indeed, it's more fun in the Philippines!

Last May 2012, our family packed our bags and headed up north to the beautiful and charming province of Aurora. We all enjoyed the breeze, the sun, the sand and the waves :D Promised ourselves that we will be coming back soon!

City boy in the farm

City boy in the farm

At the back of our house in Luisiana, Laguna are ricefields where we used to go and catch tadpoles and gather rice straw mushrooms during summer. My son was amazed by the beautiful scenery, the rice paddies are not yet planted with rice, since I took this photo in December. But there was a small patch of green where the rice seedlings or dapog was being grown.
