Laiya, Batangas Getaway

I finally convinced my blogger-side to write and post about our Batangas trip last March 28. Never been this lazy before, hormones maybe? whatevs...
Read on:

It was my dear friend Che's birthday and we planned it one month ahead (for we need to fix, swap and literally beg for us to have the same schedule). I think 25 people including the celebrant's family joined the event. Che shouldered the transportation and food, we only chip in for the cottage. Of course my husband and daughter tag along. We rode with Maan and Roy because we want to arrive in Laiya early to score cheap deal, gladly we did, thanks to Maan's convincing powers! Ha! Marta's Haven beach resort offered such a great deal.

We arrived at the resort around 1pm and ate our packed-lunch. We feasted on Letson Manok, binalot sa dahon and mangoes. Rest for a while and we headed to the beach, my daughter is getting cranky already because of the 3 hours drive so I let her swim immediately after eating. Just look at the early birds..

The rest of the group arrived at 4pm already, I pity them because they left at 9am in Sta. Rosa, that was a shocking 7 hours drive to Batangas pero it seems like sa Bicol na sila pumunta..whew! Naligaw sila and they did not use the Star Tollway, that's why. Picturan agad pagdating nila...

Of course we never missed to do the ever famous jumping shot
even my daughter tried it pero I think masyado pa shang baby...hihih!
