My birthday pool party at Intosan Resort.

I never throw birthday parties for myself in the past. So the idea of having a simple birthday pool party this year was new, fun and exciting. My family and some close relatives celebrated with me at Intosan Resort in Danao, Cebu. We had so much fun. We went there early so we could get a nice spot for our cottage. I did get a room so I can lay Caleb down when he needs a nap. It worked out pretty good. However, I am not really impressed with the venue. They have several pools that are very kid-friendly but I find the staff unfriendly, lol! The pools could use some cleaning. They don't look like they are well-maintained which is sad really because the layout of the place was awesome. They don't charge corkage for the food which pretty much is the only thing going for them, really! Alcoholic beverages are not allowed though eventually they agreed with us bringing our beers inside their premises with the agreement that they would have to be consumed just in their restaurant area. Overall, we did have a blast. We didn't let the weird and unwelcoming staff ruin our idea of fun on my birthday,  lol!

BE Resorts: The place to be!

Another wonderful beach resort that we've been to for this vacation is BE Resorts. It's situated in Mactan island. The place is cute, clean, classy and of course refreshingly wonderful. We stayed overnight and we did actually went night swimming. It was fun. Can't help but wonder though why the place was filled with so many Koreans that day, hehe! Not that I mind, lol! It's funny how Caleb had been getting lots of "he's cute" comments from Korean girls, lol! He did seem to enjoy the flattery, lol!

Anyway, we had a great time at BE. The place isn't crowded which makes you enjoy the amenities and the view all the more. They have affordable room accommodations which start at Php4,500.00 pesos. Cebu indeed has lots of amazing beach resorts that caters to all kinds of guests, be it foreigners or locals.

Spruce up your garden with sculptures.

I’ve always wanted to have a good backyard space for our new house. I’m super glad that I have that in our newly bought house. Summer season may be over but next year promises to be a great garden year for me. I’m thinking of getting some beautiful garden sculptures and statues to complement a nice garden setting. I can already envision colorful flowers and probably a few basic vegetables. I am not sure how well those plants thrive in Montana weather though but I've seen some beautiful gardens in our area during the hot season. So it's something that I need to try next year.

My baby was sick!

No matter how much careful we are to keep Caleb healthy while we're on vacation here in the Philippines, I guess the extreme weather change and environment has been too much for his little body to handle. He got sick and was hospitalized at Chong Hua Hospital for Acute Tonsillopharyngitis or simply called infection of the tonsils and lining of the throat. He was treated with antibiotics and antipyretic meds for his high fever. It breaks my heart to see him go through that. It makes me feel a little better to know that he's been taken good care by hospital nurses and doctors. If only I can shield him from all the bacteria and viruses so he won't get sick, I'd do it. But I understand being exposed to them is an inevitable part of life. I can only hope that he'll develop good immune system and that he'd less likely to get sick as he grows older. He is perfectly fine now though. He's back to his usual playful happy kid. Thank God for that!
