Summer is officially here! But it’s raining! What a weather these days! So it’s better to have both bases covered!
Always bring hats or bonnets for your little ones! That will Protect them from both heat & rain!
Don’t forget the ever trusty umbrella too! If you hate bringing big ones, at least stash a small foldable umbrella with uv protection in your bag!
Rain or shine, we can never go wrong with a sunblock for our face & body! Harmful rays can cause cancer and we don’t like that! The higher the SPF the better.
Don’t bask in the sun during noontime! Even with sunblock and other protectants.
Bring mosquito repellants when going out of town, especially to grassy and wet areas, for this is where pests usually make home. Protect ourselves and our babies from dengue!
These are just some tips for the summer! Go ahead and enjoy the sun!
Fun in the sun for all of us!

My hubby bought 2 coupons so we could bring the whole family! The picture above is the front lawn of Chateau Royale. Inside is the reception area and the different indoor activities you could do. Though we weren’t able to enjoy those anymore due to lack of time. The cafe is just outside the lobby and the beach inspired pool area! Which we also weren’t able to try because the weather’s too cool for my 18 month old daughter!
Here’s a picture of me and baby – background the playground on the pool.
Here’a another photo of the pool area, you can see the sand beside the pool!
A picture of my brother in law and baby – background our log cabin inspired rooms!
Forgot to take pictures inside the room, but it’s really big. It can fit more than 4 people. The only downside was, there’s only 1 bed which can sleep 2 people, the other 2 would have to sleep on the floor, on 2 uncomfortable mattresses. Since the room was big, they should have put another bed in there. Oh, and the air conditioning in 1 room drips. Didn’t bother to complain about that also. We were too tired already, we just moved the bed away from the dripping air con!
There were a lot of cabinets you can use if you are staying for a longer period. And if you’re many.
We didn’t get to do much on Day 1 since we arrived late in the afternoon already. And we also went out to dinner at Tagaytay which was only a 15 minute drive away if there was no slow car in front of you!
On Day 2, we all woke up early and availed of the free breakfast at the Chateau’s Cafe. I thought it was a buffet free for all, I was wrong! You only get to choose 1 viand – Corned Beef or Ham plus a sunny side up egg and garlic rice to complete the meal. For the drinks, you get to choose from coffee or orange juice!
Here’s my breakfast!
I realized there’s not much to complain about since we got our rooms on a discount. At Php 2,ooo or Php 500 per person, a free set breakfast is fine already!
After breakfast, we strolled along the vast compound. Here’s a photo of the whole family in the driveway!
We went to the fishing pond, there were some guests who actually caught fishies from that green pond! For a fee, though!
Then we posed for another family pic in one of the wooden benches in the park.
Then we saw some horses! The mother horse is tied but the little pony is not. And it’s free to roam around the whole compound.
The Manong was kind enough to saddle up the mama horse so that my little one could ride atop of it for picture taking, for free of course!
The Chateau Royale, aside from really having a large area for guests to enjoy and connect with nature, they also boasts of lots and lots of green houses where organic vegetables are farmed. And they sell them to tourists as well.
The staff were nice and accommodating, it was fast and easy to check in and out. The whole place is secured, you can see guards roaming around even at night. Aside from those stationed at the gate who checks the people who comes and goes.. The rooms have triple locks installed at the doors. The whole place is relatively clean and green. I say 4 out 5 stars for this resort.
Another family photo with the Chateau Royale Tarpaulin as background inside the lobby.
And that caps off our experience at the Chateau Royale Batangas.
See you there!
Excited to watch The Soul Siren Nina’s Valentine Concert tomorrow, February 13 at the Music Museum with Hubby.
To catch up with today’s Facebook Age, the concert was aptly called “Update Your Status.” Cool poster also! Guest artist would be Luke Mejares!
I am pretty sure that the concert will be filled with lovebirds like me and my hubby! And of course, super duper timeless love songs to match the mood!
Check out the concert’s Official Facebook Page here.
Will update this post after we watch the concert!
Love love love!

At last, I was able to complete 1 album! With the help of my brother in law, Tristan and my husband, Dennis of course! The album consists of Daphne’s 1st out of the country travel! To Daddy and Mommy’s favorite destination, Hong Kong!
We subdivided the tasks – I chose the pictures to be included. Tristan did the layout for the album. Dennis did some layout also and finalized everything to be sent out to Fotosnaps.
Now, we patiently await the outcome! I can’t wait to see the actual album!
Will be back for some pictures! and hopefully the 2nd album!
Till then! 🙂
The album turned out so well that we bought and used Fotosnaps again. To date, we have 3 albums from them.
SM Cinema just launched the first interactive cinema game in the Philippines!
Check these videos out…
You can also check the official website of SM Cinema…
I think it’s a very interesting and innovative way of doing something while waiting for the movies to show. Right?
I can’t wait to try this game out! :tongue:
A dolphin or sports car?
The picture shows a tiger. Your challenge is to spot the hidden tiger.
Did you spot the hidden tiger?
If not, look more closely at the stripes on the side of the tiger… which spell out ‘the hidden tiger.’
Have a look at the picture above. Can you see the deliberate mistake?
Some people see it immediately. Others stare at the image, and don’t notice it at first. Some people don’t see it at all.
You did spot it, didn’t you?
If not, just ask yourself …. what is the name of this animal?
YOU WANT MORE? 🙂
