The rainy season has come and we have yet to have our company outing. I don't mind going to the beach on a rainy day. Less tan but same fun.

We all hopped into two buses the company hired and it took us just two hours to get to San Juan , Batangas. We went to the Laiya Balai Resort where we had welcome drinks and buffet lunch. We walked to the nearby resort, La Luz Resort, because it is only at that part that I can see some reef and fish. This has been our entry point to Mount Dagulgol in my previous climb: Climbing Mt. Dagulgol

My favorite moments in Balai were spent taking a nap atop a 3-storey-high patio. I missed sleeping on a papag (bed made of bamboo) during my youngling years in Cavite. I enjoying kayaking the most. I was not good at it but it was good.

resort is disappointing
Their Laiya location has small fusty rooms. There are no windows. They charge an extra US$10 to use the air conditioner. Only a couple of cottages face the beach. The rest are behind a building. The only good thing there is the gorgeous beach. But then you get the same in the neighboring resorts. I consider this location a rip-off.
