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.
