Ikaw at Ako

Love, as they say, makes the world go round.

Yes, I'm a hopeless romantic! And, I'm pretty sure majority of the people roaming around the planet are hopeless romantics as well.

For most Filipinos residing in the Philippines, the new teleserye entitled "a beautiful affair" is now included in their weekdays routine. I can say this is so because I make sure I watch every episode even if it means logging in to IWanTV.

A beautiful affair's Monday episode led me to search for one of their theme songs, Ikaw at Ako by Johnoy Danao. Right then and there, it has become one of my favorite love songs of all time.

For those who wants to listen to this song, here it is:


updated: Ayala Cinemas: Sure seat

It's been a long time since I last made an entry and I must say that I had become a little bit unfamiliar with blogging already. Thanks to the blocked internet access during work (sarcastic tone).

Anyway, along with the unfamiliarity of the blog which I almost forgot, I had the chance just today to make an online transaction, ticket purchase and seat reservation, to watch a movie at Abreeza Cinema. And because of the easy transaction that we did 10 minutes ago, we're going to watch Ice Age 4 today at 2:45 PM.

To do an online purchase, you can simply go to Sureseats webpage, register/login into your account, choose which cinema and do a purchase. Once you have done that, you can print your ticket, present it to the cinema and watch the show.

However, if you don't have a printer nearby, you can simply take a photo of the ticket by using your cellphone or camera and present it to the ticket counter. Make sure that the photo is clear and the characters are readable. My uncle has done this before and it's valid even without the hard copy of the ticket.

Aside from that, Sureseats has made their website cool so that you can add friends and make a status.

So if you're thinking of all the hassles when you buy a ticket where blockbuster movies are being shown, just remember that you can stay away from long queues by doing a purchase online.

By the way, here is a photo of the online confirmation after buying a movie ticket. This is also the photo that I presented to the ticket collector before entering the cinema.


Green Tambis

I just have to blog about this.

In my entire life, I had never seen a green colored tambis. That was my first and to tell you frankly, this one tasted sweeter than the red ones.

Thank you to the donor. I really appreciate the gesture!

Justice for Marjorie Kwan

Our family was also a victim of heinous crimes, kidnapping to be exact. When it happened to us 11 years ago, our family was terrified and traumatized. Sad to say, I was able to experience it first-hand, I still couldn't let go of the fear that I felt when it happened. Up to this day, when I walk the streets, I have to look at my back once in a while to look at the people who are following me.

If you're from Davao, I'm sure you have heard of Marjorie Kwan's demise. Her untimely death caused by the motorcycle riding men sent a message to DavaoeƱos that crimes does happen at broad daylight and even at one of the safest cities in the Philippines.

I may not know her personally yet in my heart I'm praying that she gets what we have not acquired for more than 11 years.

I am Yours!

I love Sundays especially when the weather goes with what I like the most, gloomy and windy with a little rain. I can get too relax, shake off the tension after another work week has passed.

Anyway, I was doing some articles while listening to some songs over the radio. There's this song that actually caught my attention. I'm sure most of you have heard this already. Nevertheless, I'm putting it on my blog to remind me constantly how great God's love is for us. I hope you'll be reminded of it too.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Vacation Destinations: D' Leonor Inland Resort

Last January 28, we had the chance of enjoying an overnight stay at D' Leonor Inland Resort which is located at Communal, Buhangin, Davao City.

It was an abrupt decision and we had to gate crash my sister-in-law's neighbor's birthday party. Luckily, my generous sister-in-law was sport enough to reserve and pay for our room to which we enjoyed totally.

Anyway, without further ado, here are a few photos that I am super willing to share to give you an idea of how much beauty the 29 hectare resort is and how much relaxation it can give you.

The entrance to the pool. The front desk is located here also. Inquiries to room rates, reservations, function hall packages and others are available at the front desk.

This is another entrance to the wave pool but apparently, it was not available for our use.

This is the entire pool that will greet you when you enter the wave pool area.
Swimming fees are Php 150.00 for kids and Php 250.00 for adults.

Surrounding the pool area is a foot dip. Slippers are not allowed at the pool area.

This is a closer look of the slide. The slide area is especially made for the kids.
The mechanical waves does not reach the kiddie pool area and is perfectly safe for the children.

These are the cottages that are located before the main pool area.
Day rent would cost Php 500.00 for single and Php 800.00 for the double.

Swimmers can make use of these when swimming.
Salbabida or the rubber tube is at Php 75.00 while the paddle boat is at Php 150.00.
Life vests are free for everyone to use and comes in different sizes.
Plus, 'D Leonor makes sure that they have a lifeguard on duty during swimming time.

The right portion of the front desk is designed with jars. I was too shy to take a picture of the front desk as the attendants were too busy talking to their clients. 

Also at the front desk for the guests to utilize while waiting for their room keys, gate passes and other stuff to be attended. My kids most likely enjoyed them while we paid for the wave pool fee.

Another set for guests to enjoy at the waiting area.
This is the room of the cottage that we stayed in. Overnight stay is at Php 2,400  a night.

The living room of our cottage. 

The little kitchen just beside the sofa. When we arrived, everything was prepared already on the table.
A microwave oven and small refrigerator is provided to their guests.

This is located at the back of our cottage.

Just near our cottage is a chapel. I'm not too sure if there's a priest who officiates Sunday masses though.

House rules.

Of course, hotel freebies are included!

Morning view across the cottage.

This duplex styled cottages cost Php 2,400.00 a night.

'D Leonor is constructing more houses for their guests.

We stayed in one of the duplex styled cottage. 

The restaurant area where we enjoyed breakfast for 2 pax. 

This is the hanging bridge and it's located just right in front of the wave pool.

The wall climb, also across the wave pool. I'm not sure if they charge any for their guests.

If you want to try out the zip line, they also have a booth right across the wave pool. It will cost Php 250.00 per pax for 2 rides.

Cottages that costs Php 5,000.00 a night. Inside are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.

Open cottages at the wave pool area.

These are some of the cottages that will cost the guests Php 5,000.00 a night.

Too bad I wasn't able to take a few photos of the zoo, the mechanical surfing area and the entrance. If you opt to go for day tour, they will charge you an entrance fee. Overnight stays need not pay their entrance fee anymore.

The children had so much fun when we went there. Well, if you wish to relax, this might just be the place for you.
