Snorkeling at Dos Palmas

I worked awfully hard during my birthday. I woke up at 5:30 in the morning and traveled back to Laguna. After my photoshoot and interview, I had lunch with two of my friends then headed home to see my family. My mum prepared a small feast. However, I only stayed for an hour. Not only that, the hour was actually divided into several packets of time because I rushed a press release which was supposed to be submitted that afternoon. I headed back to Quezon City and felt like it was my first sad (and tiring) birthday.

I couldn’t celebrate at night because of my early flight the following day. My birthday is actually very special to me. I am the type who really celebrates so I decided to go all out in Palawan! Thank God for The Legend Hotel’s package! We were treated for a day at Dos Palmas Island Resort and Spa!

One of the highlights during the trip was our snorkeling activity! At first, I was really nervous. I was screaming and laughing altogether. After awhile, I was able to get a hang of it. The underwater scene was amazing!

After snorkeling, we had a festive lunch. The food was superb! I also can’t forget this TURON that I had for dessert. It was an extra special recipe because chocolates were added to its traditional banana content! Splendid.

This celebration was a well-deserved treat.
