The days have been so mercilessly hot and humid. Living in a tropical climate all my life would make me think that I could take this summer beating but this is somewhat too plain much! After going through all those rains and floods last year, now this?
The unbearable heat leaves you drained of energy – move an inch, and you’re already shedding buckets of sweat! ﾊｯ!(｀ﾛ´ ; ) Sure there is an AC at my place of work, but it’s the Holy Week break (yahoo!) so I’m at home now. My unreliable AC can’t fight off the heat in my room. During the hottest part of the day (10 am to 4 pm) I can’t help but lie down and sleep off the heat. Ugh! huhuhu!
But summer has its perks: fruits like mangoes, melons, avocado, and watermelons are cheaper and abundant; tropical flowers like our fiery fuchsia bougainvillea seem to be thriving in this unusual dry spell; since school is out, there’s less traffic jams, and of course, summer means BEACH OUTINGS!
Last Sunday, we had our company outing at Laiya, Batangas. I brought along my best bud, Levlev. I’ve been going to Laiya every summer since 2004 (except last year though 😦 ). It’s my most favorite beach (even topping Boracay in my list) so far…
Located in San Juan in Batangas, Laiya is a three hour drive from Manila. The beach is clean, and has no dangerous waves… great for kayaking.
Casa Remo was where we stayed. It is reasonably priced and has small apartelles and one big house (above) with plenty of rooms. It is not beside the beach though, so you have to walk a short distance to get to it.
Palm Sunday 2010: we celebrated mass at White Cove Resort.
Early Monday morning, we woke up to make use of the time left… swim to our hearts’ content!
Watcha waitin’ for? Ligo naaaah! Woo-hoo!
I♡♡♡ Laiya, forevah! \(♡´∀`♡ )/ If only this is the view that greets me when I look outside my house. Sighs.
if not, then, i’m praying for the rains to come soon…*fingerscrossed*
