Sembreak High

74 Comments
This year's semestrial break is my favorite so far. I've got to explore different places with my family and friends, tried different cuisines, did some heavy activities, update my blog and work with different trusted brands. I'm lucky enough to be given the chance to do all of those things given that I only had 3 weeks to enjoy it. I can say that I had the best time juggling with all of those during sembreak.
These pictures above were taken during the first minute of sembreak- first minute because it happened during the last day of class for the 1st sem. Haha :) It was already late afternoon when we decided to go to Nuvali. It was unexpected again. The whole trip was pure fun. We made a lot of videos during that day. 
After two days prior to our trip to Nuvali, we went again to Nuvali for lunch. We had lunch at Tonkatsu and afterwards decided to ride the speedboat for a quick tour. I was with a bigger group this time and it was twice fun. :)
Our first family trip happened when we went on a day tour in Mabini Batangas. We were supposed to go to Camp Netanya but when we arrived there the resort was closed and under construction. We looked for an alternative resort and went to see the famous and most advertised resort, Eagle Point Resort. The place was really far from the city but it was impressively beautiful and serene. It's a must place to visit for those who want to relax and be stress free even just for days. 
Another fun spontaneous trip that we had last sembreak was our ranch trip to Tagaytay. We had Sky Ranch all by ourselves for the whole day because it was school days and there were very few people around. It was chilly too during that day and that made the whole south trip worthwhile. :) 
During the midweek of sembreak my YOLO friends and I decided to have a road trip to somewhere we still haven't go to as a group. We've decided to take the route to Ibaan and ended up in Laiya Batangas. It was a long and exciting trip because we heard many good things about the place especially the beaches it offer. When we got there the first resort that we went to was Virgin Beach resort. It was my suggestion to visit it and it didn't disappoint us. Just like what I see in the pictures, it has a vast shoreline and beautiful views that almost every spot is instagram worthy. We had our merienda there, a little tour and photo ops. If only everyone brought swimming attires I bet we would be able to enjoy more our stay and the beach. 
Here's to another catch-up date with my high school friend. She introduced me to so many make-up brands and lipsticks! We actually tried lots! From those pinky and girly shades to the dark and chocolate brown ones. 
For our last family trip during sembreak we went again to our favorite place to hang-out, Tagaytay. This time we're complete!!! :) We purposely went there to dine in Pamana Restaurant. This place is unique and will definitely catch everyone's attention. From the exterior and interior designs, table set-up, chandeliers, wall of memories, views from the roof top, ambiance- everything is perfect! I forgot to say they have the best Kare-Kare I've ever tasted! So far it is my favorite restaurant and if you happen to go to Tagaytay I recommend you to try it. :)
Lastly this sembreak wouldn't be complete without a visit to a new church. We went to Nasugbu to visit Calereuga. The place was beautiful and serene but we had  a limited time exploring the place because it was late afternoon already.  We waited for the sunset before we leave and I must say that next to Monte Maria, it has the second best sunset I've seen. I will definitely go back again to this place.  :)

xoxo,

  62. What makes the item work?

    The particular ointment is absolutely user friendly. It regenerates the actual deceased operations of the skin tone for this reason turning it into much more elastic and easy. The particular serum raises the hydration in the skin tone and raises the collagen levels far too. Additionally, it enhances the actual surface and coloration of the skin tone in return, generating us all much more beautiful and vibrant.
