Mindoro Third Day Part 1: Videoke, Nails

And now we’re down to our second to the last day of our Mindoro vacation.  We are still in the resort where we spent a night of short sleep (I could’t wait to swim again!).  All of us woke up early.  Each one looked for her own nook for QT (quiet time) purposes.

Quiet time by the poolKaren chose the poolside

After my quiet time outside our room, I jumped into the pool for a morning exercise and leisure in one.  Ahhh… to wake up those tired muscles with a little pressure … to find your way to the bottommost part of the pool … to lay on your wet back and stare at the sky and just enjoy Him.  After a few minutes of swishing and splashing in the pool alone, Anne joined me.

After that, we enjoyed a much-awaited breakfast.  I really liked the boiled mushrooms which I got to taste for the first time.  And then, it’s videoke time again!  Come on! Haha!

Later on, everyone was lining up her own song.  Each one has her own type of music.

Videoke was so much fun!  We were singing and dancing and jumping and playing around!  We were teasing each other with the songs that we selected and the message of the lyrics!

During our singing sessions, some us had our nails cleaned and colored.  Pampering galore!

Just before Karen had finished her nail sessions, we transferred to a cottage to enjoy our fabulous lunch!  We had to let go of the mic and the videoke machine because some other bakasyunistas came in.

As always, the food was great!

After lunch, we took time to rest.  This was the first time since we arrived that heavy rain poured.  Praise God still!  The cool weather gave us a perfectly cool afternoon to bum around.  While Ka finishes her nails session and Haze reads her baon na mga libro; Age, Anne and I loaded all our pictures from three different cameras into Age’s laptop.  We can’t stop laughing while viewing each picture on a larger LCD!  Each one created a unique story with jokes that only the five of us can relate to.  During this time, we probably burned more calories than when we did while swimming.

At around 3 o’clock, we dcided to leave the comforts of the resort and start getting ready to face a more natural, challenging and grand destination — the beach!  So we grabbed our bags and posed for our last shot inside the resort.

We had a superb time at the resort! Thank you Lord!We had a superb time at the resort! Thank you Lord!

It’s another tricycle ride going to San Jose town.  It was funny because all seven of us (including Tita Letty and the driver) forced ourselves in one trike only!

Taking it positively, I, Age and Karen,  had a wonderful view of the greenery on our way to the beach.  It was so much fun!
