A Little R&R

Sorry to have left you with nary a post for Monday Bites. I was busy with month-end reports even when I was supposed to be on vacation. I was whisked away to some R&R right after finishing them.

Where guests of Pearl Farm, Samal, Davao are usually welcomed. Parola Bar at the 2nd floor.


But we didn't arrive this way. We took our own vehicle, rode the barge, and entered via the resort's backdoor.

Trivia: My in-laws told me that Pearl Farm used to be a pearl farm during the time of the Japanese occupation. So that would be between 1942 - 1945. And that's how it came to be called Pearl Farm.

The trip was part R&R for the whole family and part milestone celebration for H.

flying kite
My 2 year-old (nearly 3 this August) flying her own kite for the first time.

She was so excited when H bought her the kite a day before. She has been imagining flying a kite within the confines of our tiny condo. Finally!

euna with the starfish
Touching her first starfish. She usually is scared but thanks to the influence of her younger cousin, she found the courage.

And then we had dinner set up by the beach.
birthday cake
And the resort staff surprised him with a complimentary cake (I hate flash! But my camera is not strong enough for candid night shots and this is what I'm left with!)

Hope you enjoyed your milestone birthday Huneesh!

I'll be writing a separate post on Pearl Farm. Watch out for that!
