Our weekend getaway

Last Saturday the weather was not too hot perfect to go for a swim. I promised my "pamangkins" that we are going swimming again but not at the beach but at a swimming pool. And it is only exclusive for cousins. We arrived at Bethany's swimming pool around 11:00am (just 10minutes motor ride from our house), the kids were so happy they had their swim suit ready they were about to plunge in the swimming pool when the guard told them to shower first haha. I cooked with the helped of our "angel at home", adobo, shrimp cooked in 7-up, fruit salad, kinilaw, spaghetti, fried chicken and some chichiriya. From morning till 7:00pm the kids were in the swimming pool playing around with their cousins. We adults teased them that we are going home but they don't listen to us they like to swim more so we allowed them until it was 7:00 pm. The place was nice when we get there we are the first so we got the best place and they gave us extra table for our food. They don't have entrance fee, you pay the umbrella type of P300, and cottage type P800 pesos. They have rooms available for overnight stay too. The thing that I like also is that even how many people come to your party you only pay for the people who go swim and their rate is for child 50pesos and adults is 100pesos. For me that was not bad at all since almost all the adults who came didnt go for a swim except my brother. Kids do enjoy water and last Saturday they had so much fun.

You really had a good time with the kids. It's good that you can cook and everybody was able to enjoy the food you prepared. Kids really love to swim. They are like fish naturally adapted to water. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

Thanks Tess....Kinilaw is one that I missed a lot too. Kaya kain to the max ever kasi pagdating sa abroad wala nang fresh na isda sa amin.

Manang Kim said...

Hi Beng, ewan ko ba bakit pag mag swimming ka sarap kumain lalo na pag inihaw at kinilaw ang baon lol.

Manang Kim said...

Hi Mel, yes I did. It's my goal to have a quality time with them. They are happy if we go out like this simple lang talaga ang happiness nang mga bata, kaya gusto ko namang ibigay sa kanila as long as I am here. Thanks for dropping by! God bless!

Manang Kim said...

Hi Beng, oo nga mga pamangkin ko ang nag arrange niyan wala na talagang magawa pinagtripan ang mga tsinelas.

Manang Kim said...

Hi Mer, oo kinilaw na malasugi fresh na fresh from the market. Very early ko pa yan binili para makakuha nang fresh na isda. Shrimp with 7-up try mo manamis namis.

Manang Kim said...

Walang humpay na kasayahan talaga pag andito ako kasi ipag-swim ko sila at gala kami kahit saan. Ito ang ma-mimiss ko paguwi ko sa MI.

Hello there Tkim! We got back since Sunday but wasn't able to visit blogs till now. They got sick (diarrhea) except me. We actually brought our son to the hospital today because he is fevered (still is till now.).

I would like to thank you all for the wonderful and encouraging words you said and left at my blogs. For the sympathy and prayers, and for those who shared their blessings to the family! May God bless you all for your compassionate hearts!
