MARIANG LAGALAG AND BICOLANANG LAKWATSERA’S DAY OUT



I am very blessed to have a friend who shares the same passion as mine. The passion to explore and to travel. We love our own native land, the Philippines, and here we want to start our journeys. We want to travel around the Philippines and explore its beauty. We want to show the World that truly, it’s more FUN in the Philippines.

We are inspired by the famous travel bloggers like Sole Sisters, Journeying James, Chyng Reyes, Ironwulf, and many others who have the heart to live their life at its own best. They live their life to the fullest. They explore things, they travel and they are HAPPY.




My friend Judith A.K.A Bicolang Lakwatsera has been into many places. She went to places as tourist and started her blogs. I encouraged her to travel together if time and budget permits. And we agreed to set a fund for our escapades, by putting aside a little amount to this fund every payday.

There are a lot of plans, and we hope that we can do it. Alone or together as a team.

So, Pagbilao in Quezon Province is our ice breaker. We visited Puting Buhangin at Kwebang Lampas A.K.A Lukang Beach. Thank you for a one day holiday of May 1. It’s labors day. So it is our day!

After a whole at the office (it’s the Last day of April,) we excitedly walked to Quezon Ave. to hail a PUJ bound to Quiapo and from there, we rode another PUJ to Lawton. We thought that Park N Ride terminal has Buses going to Lucena or Quezon Provinces, but the Bus Conductor loitering around told us that Buses to Lucena are in Buendia Pasay City. So, we hop in another PUJ for Buendia. We didn’t notice the traffic. I think our excitement to smell the sea breeze of Puting BUhanging conquers all the tiredness and sleepiness that we feel.

Siopao Bola-Bola is our dinner/snack while the BBL Bus started its engine. Yes! See you Puting Buhangin!

  1. Cool story, and that is great that you travel as friends in search of adventure! I look forward to following you and Judith both as you write more about your escapades. I think you offer some great information as well as really nice photos. Your passion to show the world that it's more fun in the Philippines will help to bolster tourism from Pinoys, foreigners, and people like myself who are foreigners but consider themself practically balikbayans because of their strong family ties there and love for the Philippines (my wife and I want to have an early retirement in Philippines). I am sure your blog and Judith's blog will become very successful.

Bicolanang Lakwastera haggled for Kuya Tricycle driver to bring us to the nearest resort they know. They recommend Don Enrico’s Bar and Resort. This so called nearest resort took us about 20 minutes travel and Php 150.00 pesos fare. Discounted.





We knock at the gate and thought that the resort is closed. There is a construction truck inside and looks like they are renovating the resort. Good thing that the owner opened the gate and allowed us to enter. We are the only guest at that time, and the swimming pool is all by ourselves. It is like that we have rented the entire resort.







The owner is so accommodating and we only paid 140.00 for the two of us as entrance fee. The swimming pool is so tempting and we swam like children. We took pictures of the nice view. Fronting the swimming pool is a mountain that gives the resort a cool green and refreshing ambiance.



After taking some photos, Kuya pointed to us a nipa cottage wherein we can take shower and change clothes. It is an enclos…

Overnight ba kayo? Asked ate Gemma. Tao kami di kami overnight sa loob loob ko .Joke. We said no. We will be here for a day visit only. We do not have a plan to stay overnight because our work will resume on May 2. After paying 190.00 Pesos , for the two of us, (50.00 pesos per pax entrance fee, 20 pesos /pax for boat crossing the lake vice versa, and 50.00 pesos for Totoy as our way of saying thank you for allowing us to ride in his boat, saved us for trekking by land for 15 mins.



We arrived at Lukang Beach around past 9am. First step we did is to lay our mat. Renting cottage is not practical, since we are only two and we will stay there for few hours. We learned that beyond 5pm, public transports in Bgy Polo are like invisibles, meaning, and no way to get out from Lukang Beach. Scary heh! Kidding aside, tricycles from Lukang Beach to Bgy Polo are only up to 5pm.



Bicolanang Lakwatsera really wants to take pictures of the pristine beach. The sand is not that as white and powdery …
