Snorkeling Experience at Coral Garden, Puerto Galera

Indeed, Puerto Galera has lots to offer; from land tours, to island hopping to para sailing, one of the activities I most looked forward to was snorkeling the Coral Garden of San Antonio Island.

Sadly, we were not prepared in capturing the beauty and serenity of the Coral Garden (empty battery for the Underwater Camera since we partied all night and forgot to recharge the battery)

These moments, I wish I have a GoPro, or a waterproof protective casing for my S720.

 

We were dragged by small boats along the whole stretch of the Coral Garden. We fed the fishes with the bread we bought in the port. Some  of my mates tempted to eat the bread since we did not have any breakfast that morning but opt not to because feasting our eyes with the spectacle is more fulfilling! Atleast that’s the case for me 🙂

 

I saw Dory, I saw Scar Face, but I didn’t Find Nemo

The Great Ilocos Summer Adventure

Last year, our start up company – ehem (time to plug this 😛 ) Wait For It Photobooth Services – had the Great Ilocos Summer Adventure!

It was spontaneous, thrilling and most of all, full of Wait-for-it Moments!

Day 1

We stayed at Pangil Beach Resort in Currimao, Ilocos Norte.  The place was amazing facing the Currimao Coral Rock Formations.IMG_3593

After almost 3-4 hrs (i forgot) of waiting since we arrived early thought we can checked in, we started ASAP our Ilocos Tour!

Back then I had two Hair tattoos, different on both sides lol \m/

Our first stop is the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. You can definitely see some great views atop this structure.

We had fun poking around the miniture replica of the lighthouse, photo ops and enjoyed the view.

 

Next stop, one of my favorite places, is the Kapurpurawan Rock Formations.

This was one of the highlights for me of the Summer Adventure. Ilocos Norte is indeed a traveler’s haven.

Another favorite, the Bangui Windmills. I think I have no least favorite in our Summer Adventure 2013, because all of it, until now, I can still remember the feeling, the view, and the joy when we arrived in every location.DSC_0270DSC_0188

 

After Bangui Windmills, LEGGO TO THE BEACH! The Famous PAGUDPUD Beaches, namely the SAUD white beach overlooking the Bangui Windmills.

we continued on the seat of Power of the north: Malacañang ti Amianan (Malacañang of the North). We found out the heritage of the Marcos’: their legacy, early pictures of the family,  clothing and their wealth.

This house used to be Former President Ferdinand Marcos home during his reign. It was built near the Paoay Lake thus resembling the vantage point of the Malacañang of Manila.

After this educational trip, we continued on to the Church of Saint Augustine, commonly known as the Paoay Church. Built during the baroque era, made of big slabs of stone put together to build the foundation and form of the church. It withstood hundred years (304 years to be exact) even made it in one piece during the World War II.

To cap off the Day, we enjoyed the night with Karaoke in the Pool. The infinity pool overlooking Coral Rock Formation of Currimao.
