PH | A (Slightly) Rainy Outing at The Watercamp Resort

What to do when you have your birthday during one of the rainy season months (as is the case with the Little One and the Favorite Nephew?  Go swimming, of course!

The Watercamp Resort

Yes, I know it is highly unusual to go swimming on such a dreary day but with the 2 (the Little One and the Favorite Nephew) kiddos in the family craving for a water fun-filled outing, how can you say anything but yes?

And so it was decided that the family take in a special overnight tour of the nearby Watercamp Resort for 2 days of watery fun during an almost equally watery (with the sun peeking sporadically) day!

A Standard of a Room

Since the Watercamp Resort was located fairly near our home in Cavite, the family decided that spending a night over was more than enough to thoroughly enjoy the resorts pools and amenities. 

Their typical standard room, priced at Php3,050.00 a night, is basic and comfortable enough for 3 adults and a growing toddler.

And when I say basic, I do mean basic.  Sparsely furnished; which has certainly seen better days (that plus a busted shower head, too).

Bathroom

With our own balcony overlooking the pool area

It's fine, though, as we would be spending most of the day swimming anyway.

The resort also offers other types of accommodations that can also fit larger groups wishing to stay for the night.

Inns

Picnic tables and pavilions are also available for those on a day only outing.

How Many Types Of Pools Can You Fit In Such A Small Space?

And this I ask in all sincerity.

Boasting of 6 various types of pools, one can't help but be amazed at how the resort owners were able to squeeze all of that in one relatively small land area (parking not included).

View from our balcony

From our balcony alone, you can spot 2 adult-sized pools (one with a tall water slide) and a shallow wading pool for kids (complete with a small play fixture).  All these three surrounded by a 160-meter lazy river (open only during the holidays and weekends).

Children's interactive pool (still closed for the morning)

But that's not all, folks!  Located at the other area of the resort is another pool with slides and a mini wave pool, too.

Two more!

Six pools in total.  Amazing!

Little Josephine Food Service Outlet

Yes, we brought in food -- lunch and dinner (ahhh... the perks of living so near).  But for those who can't bring their own, there's always the Little Josephine Food Service Outlet.

Still closed early in the morning

There are also carinderias (small eateries) and sari-sari stores located nearby.  You won't go hungry, don't worry.

And a Playground, Too.

Kiddies can also make use of the resorts well-equipped playground area.

This, plus swimming, made for one extremely tired toddler (who slept way before her bedtime, thus ensuring a very happy cable channel surfing mommy). 

There's just so much to see and do.  Even on a slightly rainy day.  Not bad for a short family outing.  

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
