Breather at Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa

Joy and family will be migrating to NZ soon. Jimmy is now based at Manila. Me? still stuck in Cebu. Vench is also based in Cebu but we seldom see each other. Even being busy with our respective life, we still do have something in common --- treasured friendship and longing to bond with each other as well looking for ways to celebrate such precious friendship. Last December we had a chance to get together with family here at Cebu.
And since this celebration will likely to happen again in 3 to 4 years from now, it should be worth the shot -- like an overnight stay in Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa :D
I can't believe it! My family was able to get inside to one of the pricey resorts in Mactan, Cebu...Thanks to Joy and Jimmy and to the resort's holiday promos. 
We chose a Deluxe Room Garden View, which has 2 single beds, a living room, a cute kitchen bar and a terrace supposedly overlooking a garden (the front side of the hotel has renovations so we see on-going constructions). Though the room is for 2 adults and 2 kids, we were still able to avail it considering the room is still big enough to accommodate 4 adults and 3 kids. Staying at the room is already a gratification. 
The kids love the waterpark. 
Jiggy likes the beach-like pool since its only 3 ft deep. He also loves the kiddie pool with ships and slides though he doesn't like the big bucket that dumps waters every after certain interval. 
Hannah tried the open body slide which is around 120 meters long. Such an adventurous kid huh!. 
Unfortunately Zen was not able to try it due to slide's height limitation nevertheless, she still have fun.
Jimmy, the kid at heart, tried all the slides. 
We went to the beach area but nothing special in there thus we spent most of our time in the resort's main pool, with a minimum of 4ft deep. We ended up talking and talking in the pool until sundown. I still think we are not yet done talking. Are we? Joy? Jim? How much more if Vench was able to join us.
One thing noticeable in the resort is that almost 90% of the population are Koreans.

Buffet breakfast was yummy to the tummy's content with Filipino,Western and Asian dishes on it. We spent an hour and half in the restaurant just to savour the dishes. I so love buffet set-up.

Over-all experience was a bliss having to spend it with great friends in a great place.
These kids still can't get over with their holiday spree.
Looking forward to our next get together!

Jollibee "I Love You Sabado" is back!

Remember the Jollibee's I love you Sabado jingle?
The lyrics goes something like...“Isang tulog na lang, Jollibee na naman! Ang araw lulubog, bukas mabubusog… Sa Chickenjoy manok at Yumburger bilog! I love you Sabado, pati na rin Linggo! Hintay ka lang Jollibee, nand’yan na ako! Panlasang Pilipino, at home sa Jollibee!”

Been a fan to this jingle :)
Years back, this jingle was always been played in TV or Radio AD, no wonder it inspired Filipino families to look forward to weekends as a chance to bond together after a busy weekdays. We can't afford to have "Saturdays at Jollibee" but we can afford to spend those precious weekends with our kiddos. Who wouldn't love weekends --- no classes, no work, time when you have those "palanay mode" (chillin) moments  --- so as much as possible, we make sure to spend our Saturdays and Sundays together.

Did you know that Jollibee re-launched this adored jingle? Yes, they did! Though there has been revisions, it was polishe…

Weekend at Hale Manna Beach Resort and Coastal Garden

One of the privilege when you're living in a tropical country is having the sun's smile on you all year long (just don't count the typhoon visits :D). And when you're in an island surrounded by beautiful beaches, what more could you ask for?
As for me, I need finances to indulge in this privilege...hehehe

Last month, we had a chance to spend weekend with friends at Hale Manna Beach Resort and Coastal Garden, Moalboal, Cebu. Located at the southwest part of Cebu, Moalboal is also known for white beaches, coral reef and fish sanctuaries. 
If you want to relax and listen the whispers of the leaves as they dance with the sea breeze or if you just want to escape the noise and pollution of the city, then, Hale Manna is for you. From the place (rooms are spacious and clean), the staffs (everyone is so accommodating and friendly) and even the food (yummy is the best word to describe it), it surely is a haven. I tell you 2 days and 1 night is not enough. Even my daughter wished sh…
