pictures galore

On July 28th, my family joined my sister-in-law's family to celebrate her birthday! We went to Balay sa Indang in Cavite, some two hours ride away from where we live and boy did we enjoy the day. Balay is a resort managed by my wife's friend. As it was off-season, we literally had the huge place by ourselves.

My children and their cousins never minded the rain and the cold as they all went for a dive at the pool like as if it were summer.

It was a network of big, spacious, three-room cottages that contain three big master beds and a nice toilet and bath. As the place is near Tagaytay and is as cold, the owners did not see it necessary to have the rooms air-conditioned. The Asian theme, probably Thai, cannot be missed. Although the food, which is served at the main house, is a mixture of different cuisines like occidental and oriental origin.

Ipanema hehe, that was Jagad Guru meditating, :-)

cbs Yes, it was the tummy that aged first. The rest of the body is catching up, though. Thanks for the greeting.

Not really a very conservative Buddha, just plain handsome, LOL!

JMom Maganda talaga. thanks

Hi, i found your site via Sassy Lawyer's blog.
I like going to Balay, are you friends of Marge's too? It's a quieter version of Sonya's, plus the pool.

Blogger rolly said...

Mila Tan Hi! Welcome to my blog. Yes, I'm also a regular at Sassy's and Batjay's blogs.

No, I don't think I've been at either Marge's or Sonya's. Where are they located?

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
