Anyway, at least I was able to enjoy the long weekend holiday. My itchy feet would not settle for a simple rest at home! ha ha! My family, together with daughter's friend who took over the wheel headed to Sis' place. If you would ask why didn't hubby drive for us, well, he was on the road ahead of us on his bike from our place in Novaliches all the way to Balanga, Bataan! That's about 123 Km distance, if I'm not mistaken. Well, that's his passion for now. He's happy with it, let him be! Just like the one TV commercial line that goes.. "kung saan ka masaya, suportahan ta ka!" (I'll support you on whatever makes you happy!)
As I was saying, I'm thankful that Sis' home is always open for us. It was always like a feast with all the good food she prepared for us! My mouth still gets watery everytime I think of what we had while we were in her house. Big crabs, prawns, seafood kare-kare, and all except pork. Ha ha.. she knows I'm avoiding pork, that's why! Can't thank her enough!.
I'm sure I have already mentioned before that the Province of Bataan oozes with beautiful beaches and historical sites. Up to this moment, gorgeous resorts keep popping everywhere. The latest amongst those is the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar located in Bagac, Bataan. I'm thankful that Sis got a membership card to this awesome resort and the benefits are being shared to us. The development of this first class resort is still on-going but almost complete. Every house constructed is a clone of the houses of the past from late 19th to early 20th century. My hat's off to the people who conceptualized this antique houses' village. They brought forth the time of our ancestors for the present generation to feel and see. It's quite hard to explain the feeling while I walked the paths of cobblestones and antique street lamps while my jaw dropped in admiration to those grand old houses. In addition, they have swimming pools and well maintained beach which are another exciting attractions for tourists. Anyone who'll visit this place will be awestruck like us and would surely come back again and again and again!!,

Obviously, it was a worthwhile escapade! The photos above were taken on two occasions. The first time was on noontime of Friday, April 22 and the second one was when we came back on afternoon of Sunday, April 24. The other days were spent on a beach in Iba, Zambales. Nevertheless, that calls for another page of blogging.
Thanks so much for coming by. I hope you are having a wonderful week!
