SUNDAY POST :From a Distance (Anilao, Batangas)

What a nice theme for the week and it reminded me of the song ‘From a Distance’ by Bette Midler. I’m sure you all know this song. Perfect background music as well since it’s almost midnight. I want to do my share for the challenge right away coz tomorrow will be another work week for me. Yes, I have work on a Sunday and my off is Friday and Saturday. This schedule is actually my personal choice so don’t worry about me.

Checking on my archive of photos, I have a lot of long shot collections. Let me just share the trip we had in Anilao, Batangas, Philippines. We stayed in Outrigger Resort way back in May of 2009. It was just on overnight stay ‘coz we just want to take a quick break of the usual city life. Just sort of a ‘breather’ from all the stress, drama, problems that we had at that time. The place was really nice with friendly staff and good food. We had a clean and comfortable room. The price was not that expensive but not that cheap. Our room was 1500 per person,  it’s worth it.

Batangas is just perfect if you want to go to the beach and you don’t have concrete plans or you just felt the need to go right away. It’s only 2-3 hour drive from Manila. You’ll find a lot of 5 star resorts there. We’re actually planning to go to Acuatico, a 5 star resort with infinity pool.  Lovely place but oh so expensive. Need to save up for that.

Anilao is the best diving spot in Batangas. Read more about it here:
