Open Trip @ Anilao Batangas - Let's Go Snorkling

It may be a blessing in disguise that our planned hike was cancelled so I was able to join Chyng’s open trip. Immediately, out of my nervousness(in joining) and curiosity, I sent her a message. So then I found myself a solo joiner sa Anilao Trip. Puyat pa from our company’s team building, I went at the meeting place packed with excitement and anxiety on what will happen next. Glad to say I enjoyed the trip because of the elegant-looking resort that made best with these wonderful new travel buddies.

Dito kami sinundo ng boat going to the Resort, nice view na agad right?!

Welcome to Portulano Dive Resort! Bawal mangapit bahay ng resort, boat ride is the only way to go here.

The place is relaxing and inviting, you can just sit and enjoy the view of the beach. There's an infinity pool as shown above.

The lounge and the bedroom area, cozy and madaming pillows. Classic look, a good place for a vacation if ayaw mo nang lumayo from Manila.

Topmost area facing the beach; this is were we stayed after dinner, lazy mode lang.

Dining area, buffet meals for breakfast lunch and dinner.

More views of the beach here, but of course, the reason why we went there is for snorkeling. Apparently first time ko to use my underwater camera in an open water and I'm so cautious holding it and snorkling at the same time. Di ko ma karir ang view underwater. Ang lalayo tuloy ng shots ko. :p

More underwater shots here with Chyng c/o Maricar

Corny talaga ng underwater shots ko, haha! not good so ako nalang... still not a good photo though.

More shots on the beach nalang ulit. Some were taken going back to home na.

~~~~And finally, saving the best, meet my travel buddies.~~~~

First time to see each other (except for Chyng as I met her 2 days before the trip) but we enjoyed the company. All are very pleasant and friendly, everbody has their own unique personality. The place can’t be this gorgeous without these 8 girls of course.

Kath (above) and Pam (below); both from Iligan City. I am fascinated on Kat being a mountaineer and being so adventurous pursuing what she wants on her life and Pam standing on what she believes and being so brave in the name of love.

And of course Chyng, thanks for organizing the trip and being so nice to me, thanks for sharing inspiring stories of yours. Lumalakas loob ko tuloy pag kausap ka. :p


What I've enjoyed most is the experience joining an overnight trip with all strangers with you. Hey It's not too late to explore for first timers like me. :p

To everyone, thanks again and I’m looking forward for more trips with you guys! See you soon!
