Birthday Bash in Bataan White Corals Beach Resort


Starry moonlit night, cool garden air, great food, wine and videoke, all these we had on Friday night at sis’ place. These things may already complete a birthday celebration but clearly, they weren’t so! They were only  “appetizers” of the real birthday bash. The following morning we all headed to the lovely White Corals Beach Resort in Morong, Bataan. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, it is an awesome place with ample amenities. I love the simple but attractive architecture designs of the cottages and the well manicured lawns and gardens. Adding as well the good services of the polite staff,  We arrived at the resort just in time for lunch. The boys unloaded our food from the car and we lunched in one of the open cottages by the pool just a few steps away from the beach itself. Our food?  As expected, no oysters and mussels but there was still the fave shrimps. Lol! I truly love all that was there!  Alluring pool, crystal clear water of the beach, fine sand and serene surroundings, great food by sis..ahh,  extreme happiness for me!

Next was an afternoon of videoke-ing. Then a boat trip to Philippine Marine Turtles Sanctuary and to the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant. We only caught a glimpse of the completed but never fueled nuclear plant ‘cause  getting near it is prohibited.  I feel sorry for the Filipino people as I stare at the $2.3B "white elephant". Well,  I'll find time for that more serious subject. Meantime, back to where we are... the big kiddos went snorkeling in the deep water while we're engrossed on that dormant power plant. The sun had set when we headed back to the resort just in time to prepare dinner.

That's all for now buddies!  ... But there's more coming up.  Thanks! Hope to see you again!

Hello Nensa! Yes, we sure had a great time as sis spent a good sum out there. Lol! Thanks for the nice words my friend. Take care!

Beng Gee said...

Hi Huling! Sorry ha? Nakadalawang TGIF na at dalawang comment ka na rin bago ako naka-reply. Sobra kasing busy eh. Ingat and see you!

Beng Gee said...

Hello Alf! Thank you in behalf of the celebrator!

Beng Gee said...

Hi Lee! Always glad seeing you here! Feeling quite lucky that we don't experience that extreme cold temp you have over there! Lol! But this paradise you are referring to is still far from the beauty of what you have there! About the our food, most were grilled and few were Pinoy food prepared by Sis. Thanks for visiting twice and sorry for the late posting of comments. Ingat ka!

Beng Gee said...

Hello Rose! So happy you are here! Medyo bongga lang kasi ginastusan ni sister eh. he he.. Thanks for your time. Hope to see you again.
Take care!

Beng Gee said...

@angsarap! Ganun ba talaga kalamig dyan? Siguro it's about time to visit home. See you again friend! Thanks for your comment.

Beng Gee said...

Hello Beth! Thanks you are here! Yes, the place is nice. Try visiting it in the future. See you in your site. Ingat ka!
