While having Media Noche on January 1, a bunch of us at home decided that after we had some sleep, we’d take a drive to Subic after lunch, maybe do a bit of shopping, have some dinner and coffee there, and then come back home. But the afternoon trip turned into an overnight stay when we found ourselves booking a hotel for the night.
Last year, my family and I thought it would make sense to spend Halloween at the beach. OK, that’s a lie; when we called to make a reservation at La Luz in Batangas, we forgot it would be the Halloween weekend and booked anyway. We didn’t care that it was the rainy season, either. We just wanted a few days away from the city. (This trip is different from the one we took in early 2015, by the way. We just really like this beach so we keep coming back.)
First, I think some apologies are in order. I know I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been crazy busy during the holidays and even after that. I have to say, I did miss sharing some stuff here, so I’m going to try to update my blog a bit more regularly starting now. (I’m not calling it a resolution; resolutions are delusional statements you’re expected to break a couple of weeks into the new year.)
I’m introducing another feature to my blog which I’m calling “In photos” for stories I feel would be best told in a collection of images. To start with, I’m interrupting my “food crawl” series with a short entry about my recent visit to the BF Saturday Market. Recently opened this year, it’s the latest addition to the Saturday Market craze in Metro Manila, where bargain hunters and food lovers are promised a different alfresco shopping and dining experience every time.
