Beautiful

photo hunt
Tumbaga Beach House

I have heard of so many stories and I have seen so many wonderful pictures from my mom's hometown, but seeing it personally gave me that first hand look at how great the place really was. I have been in my mom's hometown so many times, but it was just last July that I was able to check out the famous Barangay Ilog Malino and Barangay Patar, famous for their beach resorts.

At that time, we were invited by Uncle Pete (mom's younger brother) and his family to come have a vacation with them because they are about to migrate to the US (they are actually in the US now) and they wanted us to celebrate with them. Of course, who would not say no for a free vacation, right?

This picture was taken from the private beach house we rented. A sneak peek of the wonderful paradise - this place is where I soaked up the sun and eventually got sun burned (but I still loved it), and this is where I first tried to snorkel and floated without any qualms whatsoever. I still don't know how to swim, but this is where I took giant steps towards learning how to.

Lovely beach photo. You sure had a blast. Unlike the two beaches in Mumbai city, the beach doesn't look crowded. I love such beaches, where one can spend some time with oneself.
