The Road to Bagac, Bataan was Paved with Kindness

A wedding in the afternoon at Malolos, Bualacan that finished early evening did not deter us from heading on to Bagac, Bataan to celebrate the last weekend of summer.

We had our reservations at Fajardo’s Beach but they sadly gave it to another group because we arrived quite late already (they didn’t even bother to contact us!). But instead of feeling annoyed, we actually felt relieved. We’re not snooty but the groups having videoke sessions kind of gave us that uncomfortable feeling. After getting our deposit, we left and asked neighboring beach, Bagac Bay Beach Resort but they sadly cannot accommodate us.

As expensive as it is at Las Casas, we thought we’ll just stay there but they’re also fully booked. The guard suggested we go to Montemar Beach Club. Three of their employees who just finished their shift offered to lead the way. Really kind people. We followed their motorbike. Luck finally smiled our way.

When things don’t go as planned, don’t sweat it. In our case, we’re just thankful; it brought us to a much nicer placer, more expensive than what we initially had in mind, but pretty much worth it.

When things don’t go as planned, cross your fingers; say a prayer; brave the twist and turns and REFRAIN from telling ghost stories. Save it for breakfast. 😉

Good morning, Montemar!

Because a carb-loaded breakfast is just the way to go \m/

Lovely day at the beach

Just love the beach!

Montemar Beach Club has their own sea turtle conservation program

    Buti na lang you’re not telling any ghost stories during the trip. Or if you’re saying something about ghost, carry pa. I’m actually not sure what to do if I’ve seen one cross or stand in front of me. Though I think that would really really wake me up in the trip

  3. Naalala ko tuloy yung sa Friends na kanta, pero it was Smelly Cat pala. hahaha 🙂
