Mini-Vacay 1 of 2: Sta. Monica Beach Resort, Banilad, Dumaguete City
I went home last Wednesday, April 1. Ha. It was an April Fool's Day! Like as always, I woke up around 2am, went to the bus terminal and then traveled for about three to four hours going to Liloan, fastcraft going to Sibulan and then multicab going to Dumaguete and so on.
My mother told me that she is going to have a meeting with her co-teachers and a very important person in Sta. Monica Beach Club. I asked her if my sister and I could hitch going to the resort and go swimming since it has been ages we haven't have a good dip in the pool. Luckily, my mother agreed and tadaaa.. hello, summer. Well, that is for my sister because in my case, it is just a pseudo-summer. I still have bimonthlies and finals for this month.
And oh, by the way, bare with me with my photos because some were already filtered with instagram while some are straight from my phone.
It was my first time to visit the resort though I have already heard about this many time. It is an old resort in Dumaguete which was revamped and marketed last year through an EDM foam party. The place was surrounded by tall coconut tree which gives you the fresh feeling of summer.
There was a good view of the beach in front of the resort which I think it is still part of their property. Oh, how I wish I could spend the whole week relaxing in this resort because the place was so peaceful. It's like a small paradise.
Well, here I am trying to swim the exams away.
My sister. I was the one who took the photo and I guess, I shoot better.
With my cutie patootie, mother.
We stayed in the resort 'till evening and this is how it looks like. We also had our dinner in their restaurant and their food was beyond average. We had kare-kare, crispy pata, sinuglaw and tuna belly at a very good price. The entrance was 500 pesos which is consumable (worth 400 pesos). It was not bad though it was a bit pricey but it's all worth it.
