As part of our 2014 resolutions, Dino and I promised to travel with Liam more this year. Last holy week,(yeah I know, suuuper late post again) Our original plan was to go to CDO and let Liam experience the white water rafting then spend the rest of the holy week in Malai Balai (It’s soo nice there, promise! It’s like you’re in New Zealand). But our good friend, suggested that we do it some other time as there are many tourist and travelers during holy week. So instead of staying at home, I decided to book ourselves in a resort hotel nearby.
We booked ourselves in Best Western Sandbar Resort at Cordova Mactan Cebu (check out their official website). It wasn’t that pricey and they are the only hotel that did not increase so much during peak season (1K additional only). Swak na swak sa budget! 🙂
We also decided to go yaya-less this trip. Asked Ate Donna to do a general cleaning instead. Unfortunately, Dino was not feeling very well during the trip, so most of the photos you’ll see below are of me and Liam.
It wasn’t as grand as the Shangri-La Hotel, but it was cozy and we had a fun time together. As they say, it’s not important how expensive or how grand the place is, as long as we are all together, that’s what matters!
Our holy week vacation in Makati marked Liam’s many firsts.
First Mega block Building…
First Antipolo trip. It’s a de Leon tradition to go to Antipolo every Maundy Thursday. Before, Dino used to walk from Makati to Antipolo and meet his parents there then he will ride back with them going home.
First Laguna Trip with my side of the family. Dino and I were really happy that Liam is not shy anymore. As soon as we reach the resort, he let my brother carry him and said hi to all his cousins, blessed his Ahma (Grandma, my mom) and played with everyone. He even played with the other kids that night, forgetting all about me (another first – Ouch!!)
First time to let another girl ride with him.. (another OUCH for mommy.. hehe)
First time to let Ninang Jane carry him with matching photo opt, kiss, hug and gigil pa.. 🙂 Every time we go home (Makati) Ninong Rene and Ninang Jane (together with Ahya Sean and Ahya Matt) never failed to come and visit Liam, not just once but at least 3x in each visit. 🙂
My SIL also blogged about our vacation. First about our Antipolo trip and Liam’s 2 weeks vacation where there are more pics than my post. (yeah, yeah, I know, am bad in documenting events.. This mommy will get there soon.. hehehe…)
