Celebrating our son’s 9th birthday at La Traviesa Hotel Resort, General Trias

All I really wanted was for Jay  not to miss his son’s 9th birthday. We don’t normally tag along Jay when he has out-of-town training and ministry events but we both thought that it would be a good idea that we come as a family this time and celebrate Pablo’s birthday in the company of the ministry we so love. We were happy to find out that Pablo’s friend, Maxene, was also going to celebrate her 8th birthday the same way. The venue was to be La Traviesa hotel Resort and knowing that there are certain standards set in choosing venues for […]

Residence Inn is only 5 kilometers away from Taal Vista Hotel but Paradizoo is another 6 kilometers. I thought at first that Residence Inn […]

Staycationing at Taal Vista hotel

Last Wednesday, our family went to Taal Vista hotel to use the gift certificate that we won in Mrs. C’s Sugarcoated Life Taal Vista stay-cation contest .  It’s just an overnight stay, really, but it’s a huge deal for us because it was our very first family get-away. Things didn’t go as smoothly as I planned. For starters, I got sick the week of our stay-cation and was feeling weak, dizzy and unwell even on the night before our reserved date. Because of it, I packed late and I failed to buy kites (so kite-flying which was part of our original […]
