10th January: T’was Saturday afternoon about 4ish when we got up and prepared for a night swimming celebrating my cousin RJ’s 23rd birthday. Not because we have much time and money to spend, but it was his wish on his day aside from just having a typical food trip and drinking session at home. My cousin is fond of outdoor adventures. And because it’s his day, about 6 of us decided to come with him. Himself prepared pork adobo, shanghai, pansit, fried chicken, fruit salad for our desert and a lot more.
We took a cab from Eastwood to Antipolo. Since we were not familiar with the route, my friend Kaye had turned her GPS on to serve as our guide along the way. Surprisingly, the GPS had misled us on the wrong path. Haha! Credits to Kaye Beltran for the hard work on the GPS. 😀 Then we just decided to ride a tricylce bound to the resort, which is luckily just few minutes away from where we were (on the cab).
At the resort, Pauleen (RJ’s friend) has been waiting for us, already arrived there ahead of us since he just reside just nearby. Had a funny experience along the way as he (Pauleen) is a gay person and is fun to be with. What a fun-filled experience it is to be with them. After few minutes of resting in the resort, Other friends also came (Sam and Angel) with the drinking session and all that.
We also experienced the disco pool. Never had a chance to stay long as it’s a bit cold and I had cough then so I just decided to join the drinkers’ session. Had a taste of wine but not much though. Half of the group decided to spend much on the pool but some had to drink or stay at the room to take rest.
But the most fun part is, when someone fell off from the huge dinosaur statue after the disco pool session. Everyone was already drunk when some of us went to the pool. We had so much fun that night but that moment was the highlight among all. 😀
What an exciting night indeed. For adventurers within Manila, this is one of the best recommended place I can give since it’s affordable. Our entrance costs 180php each, cottage of 2,100php & the room where we secured our things is costing about 2000php overnight. It took us just about 45 minutes or so to reach the resort. Not bad! About 7ish in the morning when we left the resort after a nap. Thanks again Jenefer Belarmino for lending me your beautiful DSLR cam. But of course, not too late. Happy birthday to my gorgeous cousin, Stay nice and humble. Mabuhay everyone! 😀
