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!
