Change The Way You See Beauty

We live in a world where everything seems to be a beauty pageant.   Girls aim for that hot beach body, beautiful clothes and the perfect Kardashian sculpted face.  It's saddening to know that the society has established their own standards of beauty. 

We can't deny how a lot of people were being bashed and rejected  based from their size, height, color and appearance without being given the chance to show what they've got.  As a result we keep changing our selves into someone we don’t really know.  Girls try to mask themselves with tons of makeup while some are starving themselves just to be able to look skinny. We are all born with differences but I bet you you are beautiful in your own way.

If you have seen me in person, you’ll see my scarred face due to breakouts, unmanageable hair and my super petite body.
But I learned to love myself, embrace whatever I have no matter how many times people would tease me for my height and breakouts.

The meaning of beauty is not being perfect. 
  Beauty is something that makes a person glow despite all the flaws of what our naked eye can see.  It isn't a game of face values or who has the better genes
It isn't about the color  of your race, vital statistics or your skinny body. 

Beauty is something that comes from deep within.  Remember how the Mighty one  created beauty out of ashes and darkness so who are we to give standards? It's ourselves who should start seeing our own beauty then the rest will follow.

Let's change the way we see beauty.  No standards,  no judgments,  just pure appreciation of what is around us and just like beauty  let’s

Shemhaii by the Seashore of Matabungkay

You know how I desperately wanted to be at the beach and now my summer adventure begins.
I started the month May at Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center and now my second weekend at the seashore of Matabungkay 

We had a quick getaway with the whole department yet during that day I am in the middle of Vacation and Work since I still have a task that has to be submitted but that doesn't spoil the fun.

In the middle of work and Vacation
We stayed at Matabungkay Beach Hotel and Resort.  We arrived late at night and stayed at their conference room since we still have a program and activities prepared by the committee and slept late at night since Night Swimming at their pool is not allowed

In the Morning, We are able to explore the resort and I am amazed by its beauty. From their rustic wooden lobby to the restaurant, Relaxing pools and the serene beauty of the sea.
Mornings like this should be spent at its fullest since not everyday you'll be waking up to this kind of place. With only a few hours left before our check out time, We made sure that time at Matabungkay won't be wasted.

So after Breakfast, We Immediately suit up  and strolled the beige sands of Matabungkay. We didn't expected much with the beach but who cares? a beach will always be a place for wandering souls and mermaid wannabe

More Snaps of Our trip here:

Definitely a time well spent! 

Now Back to Work!!

A Day at Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center Tanay

Summer is almost halfway done and I can't believe that I haven't gone anywhere out but thankfully my parents decided to throw a Summer Outing exclusive to our family which made me excited.
We had a lot of choices but we end up Booking at Bakasyunan Resort and Conference Center,Tanay.
Keep reading to know my thoughts about this place.

We went to the resort last Saturday, April 30, 2016 and we arrived there at almost 4:30pm since we departed from our house past 12pm that day.
the Map they provided us was very helpful since it includes landmarks that we could find easily.

Checking In 
We had a problem while checking in. When I booked our room I requested Ms. Joanna to have our 2 rooms next to each other so we could easily go to each others room but yet they gave us rooms that are too far from each other ( Carneros 7 and Carneros 15)which made my mother and my sisters disappointed and angry. They told us that one of  the rooms that was booked for us (Carneros 16) is not available since it has a broken bathroom fixture. We checked it out and decided to just use it but then again we found out that Carneros 15 also has a broken bathroom fixture. They gave us another option which is the Carneros 30 which is just behind our room. My Parents are already tired so we just agreed and stayed at Carneros 15 and 30. They told us that Carneros 15 is still usable even it has that crack on the shower floor. 
The Rooms
Carneros Rooms are equipped with 2 Queen Size Beds, 4 Pillows, 4 Towels,Kettle, Aircon, Small fridge and television. It comes with a shower and bathtub. It also has a Balcony. This Room can accommodate 4 Persons.

The rooms are really nice and we are so excited to use the Bathtub, I had a nice sleep because of the 
good ambiance of our room. Minus points for the comfort room that still has a puddle of water and the broken shower floor

Bakasyunan has a lot of Amenities that could be perfect for Company Outings and Barkada trips since they offer team building activities. They have ATV's , Zip Line, Bike Trails, Horseback Riding and a lot more that could bring out your adventurous side. For us we haven't tried anything else since we already ran out of time. We just used their Garden pool which is just below our rooms and the Main pool on top. 

If it's your first time here you'll be surprised that there is a Windmill that could be sighted across the mountain nearby. 

We did not bring food inside the resort since it has  200 pesos corkage fee  per head. So instead we decided to just buy food from their restaurant . We ordered Kare-kare, Sisig, Chopsuey for our dinner. That time the restaurant isn't crowded that's why we are easily attended by their staffs. Tho' during breakfast we had a hard time ordering our food since there are already a lot of people in the restaurant and the food choices are limited since some of the food listed are not available.

Here are some snapshots from our trip at Bakasyunan

We somehow had a great time at Bakasyunan. The place is super nice considering all the activities that they offer to their customers but I hope they could improve their Customer Service especially at the Reception Area.
 We had encountered a receptionist who tried to hold us from checking out and even dared to lessen the discount exclusively given to us even we have already paid everything in advance and I hope they could fix their Broken Bathroom fixtures to make sure that their customers most especially the kids are safe from accidents. 
I hope they could be consistent with their actions. Like the Carneros 16 which is just beside our room. They told us that it isn't available since it also has a broken shower floor which might over flow when used but then later on we found out that there are customers who occupied that room.
Our Family looked into the brighter side despite all those issues we had in Bakasyunan.
We told ourselves that no matter what, We are blessed to be here with our Family and we are blessed to travel as a family.
