From Manila to San Juan, Batangas

circa 2009

My friends and I were itching to get out of the city for a weekend getaway. I suggested La Luz Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas, a good three hour drive from the Metro.

The water was pretty rough the first day but the boys didn’t care. There are cabanas beach front to relax, hang out, or nap.

We stayed in a 2-floor loft – the girls stayed at the more spacious bottom floor and the boys upstairs. It was surprisingly spacious, quite old school though with the key attached to a massive key ring – I suppose that’s very island-y but I am not exactly a fan of carrying a massive key ring. The boys did it.

The sand wasn’t powder-like, a lot of stones which was a disappointment for me as I love powder sand beach but hey we still had fun and the water was still nice.

We found this hilarious and cute to begin with but look at that poor thing – tied up! It gets enough food from the guests but I still think it shouldn’t be tied up nor be a pet!

Speaking of food, guests are required to purchase a food package – buffet for each meal, there’s no other choice! Quite ridiculous but I’m not complaining since I’m a fan of all-you-can-eat, the food was below average though.

Would I go back? No. Did I have fun? Yes.

By the way, this is when Michael Jackson died. We found out whilst we’re at the beach then played his songs non-stop.
