Things I now miss in Dos Palmas, Palawan:

Thursday, March 17, 2011

All the Hang-outs by the pool area:

Habang kuma-kape (sinusulit ko kasi unlimited) kahit tirik ang araw!

Pag sunbathing! Kahit si Ana lang yun, ako laging asa shade takot umitim hehe.

Hangout sa kubo by the BEACH!

Na super ganda ng view...

Stroll around the resort! At kahit we had no plans of using / availing them, at least we checked out the resort's many amenities and activity areas:
Souvenir Shop

Bikes you can use anywhere and anytime! (Kung marunong lang ako, boo. :P)

Tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. They also have indoor activities like table tennis, darts, board games, and foosball!


Function Room

Art Shop

We also played billiards:

Would you believe, first time ko lang itry to? Hahaha! Masaya pala! :D

Emote kung emote sa videoke during our first night:

Ops, pipikit na yan! Hahaha!
Pag labas namin, wala nang tao! Scary ang dilim going back to our house!!! :P

Discover Scuba Diving! Inclusive siya sa package, we can choose between that or pa-massage:

I think mas sulit yung scuba, because the rates are more expensive!

And it's not everyday you get to experience and appreciate the beauty of the water world!

We watched a video, practiced the basics in the pool area, before we get to really dive--with the guidance of a PADI-recognized scuba diving instructor, Kuya Manny!

Nung una, nadisorient pa ako when we were about to go and sink na underwater...So I had to signal our instructor a thumbs up sign (go back up again), so I can breathe in and out normally, orient myself as to what to expect (ang tanda ko na talaga, di na daredevil and ang dali nang umurong! :p)...And then after a few minutes, I told them "Let's do this!" And just went for it! 

Grabe, it was a fun and beautiful experience...One of the best I had here in Dos Palmas!

We also had a special "picnic lunch" in a private island! Again, inclusive in our package!

Kuya, preparing our lunch:

They served sooo much food! All to ourselves! Super sulit noh!

They didn't want to be usi, the kuyas just turned their backs from us! Ibang klase, I love the Dos Palmas people!

Tambay ng onti till 2...

Tried the hammocks, na hindi pala super comfy, noh? Haha!

Nag kayak din kami! :D Which was fun, ang lakas lang ng waves napapanic ako pag tatangayin na kami sa poles or in the different direction, hahaha!
Sayang wala kaming pics nun :P

We also tried the cheapest massage on our last night. 
So...Ang cheapest na nila is Swedish, which costs P1k padin. :P But masayang experience narin! 

Checked out the place in the morning, and we made our reservations for the last call time (10pm)

Sobrang benta lang na hindi ko akalaing hubad kung hubad massage iteych! Medyo naawkward ang conserbatib na si ako, hahaha! Sobrang laugh trip rin naman after, so oks lang!
Joke pa namin ni Ana wala kaming picturean during the spa hahaha, kalurkey naman yun! :D

Salabat after the good full body massage:

But I think ang pinakamamimiss ko is this:

Food trip forever! Buffet from breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Kahit wala nang point ang exercise ko pre-trip, sinulit ko talaga ang kainan! I will be blogging about the foods served to us throughout our stay in my next entry!!!! Super ganun kadami, it is meant for a separate blog post! :D

It had been a real vacation for me during my stay in Dos Palmas. Minsan diba sa trip mo sobrang nasstress ka pa you'll even say "I NEED A VACATION FROM THIS VACATION!" Haha! But in this case, it's super relaxing, and buhay donya, "this is the life!" lang ang masasabi ko! Although it left me now with empty pockets, isn't this the point why we work so hard everyday? To spoil ourselves even for just a few days! 

I miss you Dos Palmas! :P Best service and experience ever!
