First of all, before I write about my recent holiday, I want to thank Ferdi Salvador for introducing me to Diday Co-Pangilinan. It was her that assisted me in everything that I needed to make this vacation perfect. To both of you, my life would be empty...ok, I am exaggerating...but the truth is, this has been a MAGNIFICENT vacation for me and the honey and without you both, I probably would not have this experience in my Book of Awesome Holidays!
What a great way to end my multiple birthday celebrations. A trip to Misibas Bay in Legazpi City was just what I needed. Usually, I would be a little hesitant to book such a trip during habagat (rainy season) but the promo was just too hard to resist. I have heard so many things about this resort and seen beautiful photos on Facebook that I felt it was calling out to me. And boy, am I glad that I answered.
Cebu Pacific was ON TIME!!! WOOHOOO!!! That in itself is something to celebrate about. The staff were friendly, easy to talk to and efficient. I asked for leg room seats because the honey needs it and with that simple request, we got it right away. When we landed from a supposedly 55 minute ride, we were informed that we arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Not a bad thing!
We got picked up by the clean and comfortable Toyoto Grandia of Misibis Bay Resort driven by a very friendly driver. I slept most of the way and woke up only when the van had to get unto a barge for a 5 minute ride across the river. After, it was straight all the way to paradise.
The resort is clean and orderly. The receptionist walks the grounds with you to explain the structures and where to go. They all speak English very well and I couldn't help but notice their constant smile on their faces. Each and everyone of them. We were told that the recreation department will give us a schedule on activities that we can do while checked in. It is up to us if we want to participate or if we are just lazy bums and sleep under the sun all day. I love options and what they gave us are both acceptable.
These photos are not taken by a professional photographer. It is just so nice because of my honey's gift for me. I am truly loving my new SONY Nex-5.
The grounds are so well maintained that I didn't see a single dead leaf lying around. As you can see, the weather cooperated with my wishes. A little bit of sun, a lot of cloud and refreshing wind welcomed us. I got to work on my tan (got burned in the process) but very happy with the weather even if the staff were apologetic about the little rain. It's not like they could do anything about it but it was sweet of them to care that much about their occupants.
It may seem like the photos are postcards but really, it is THIS beautiful and with that, I am totally not exaggerating.
There's so much more to tell and to show you but for now, all I can say is, if you haven't been to Misibis Bay, dude, plan it now. Call them up, email them, twitter them, check out their website do whatever it takes to get you, your honey, your family, your clan to go to Misibis Bay.
