My birthday present to myself… is coming back to my birth Country of course you must experience THE BEACH.

Looks like Maldives but nope, this is from my province but the place is near my cousin where she settled for life after getting married.  I bet you will spend a lot less money here compared to Maldives!

BEACH 1:  STILTS

One thing I learned from coming back.  I am fortunate.  I must give thanks.

Philippines is not known for doing tourist commercial ads on TV, unlike other Asian neighboring Country.  Actually, most tourists come flocking here just by the word of mouth.  No need to spend millions for tv ads.  I also say, do not judge until you get there and experience it yourself.  The beauty of nature, of people so warm and friendly.

The beauty of nature continues to amaze me wherever in the World I may be.  I say it is better you get out of your comfort zone so you know where will you be most happy and decide from there.  Otherwise… you will only see a little of this World. ENJOY!!!

BEACH 2:  LAGO DE ORO

We choose to spent our sunsets in this beach resort just a few minutes walking distance to my cousin’s house.  Beautiful isn’t it?  You can find it anywhere here in the Philippines.  You can also enjoy wakeboarding, banana boat & diving here!

Sadiyaat Island & it’s Turquoise Sea

Yes, our next family adventure goes to this currently developing island near Abu Dhabi City.  Though we are not too far from this place (approx. 30 mins. away) we still don’t find the time to get here so finally last weekend I managed to persuade the hubby to drive to here without any plans just to have a look around and what it can offer.

Sadiyaat Island means “Happiness Island” in Arabic according to my fave Wikipedia. 🙂  To know more about this beautiful Island please click the LINK here and I am looking forward to coming back again when we have more time to explore the Island and its international standard beautiful beach where the endangered Hawksbill Turtles return annually to lay their eggs and the only unique Grey species of mangroves that can only be found in the UAE.

Our little troll peanut, accompanying us to our destination.

We managed to stop and admire inside the very posh St.Regis Sadiyaat Island Resort.  It is surrounded not only the pristine Turquoise sea of the island but also a golf beach club and gosh! everything is like so luxuriously simple for people who can afford to do so.

While admiring the view… why not have a cup of coffee or tea on one of their many lounges, each has a different theme.  Up to you which one you prefer.

Have a great relaxing school holiday for those parents like us and wander away!
