Christmasing is More Fun in the Philippines

Part 1 - My Family's Tour of the Subic Bay

sunny 28 °C


One memorable Christmas in my life!


My parents were in Manila to celebrate for the first time with me and my sister, En. So I decided to have an overnight escapade in Subic. And it was my whole family's first time in the area. En pre-booked a family room at Hotel Venezia for a night on December 25.


We left our place in San Jose del Monte City at six in the morning and arrived in Subic at around noon. We took the NLEX, then SCTEX, and TIPO Express with Jun (En's husband) driving. This was another road trip aboard our Toyota Innova.


We have literally a day to get around Subic so we wasted no time than headed straight to Ocean Adventure. En and I have been there once but it was like 8 years ago and many things have changed in the park. I was personally glad that despite Papa Tantong's delicate health condition, which by that time he experienced difficulty of breathing when in the crowd, he really enjoyed all the shows with Mama Dulcing. Even our little Wanwan did enjoy the Dolphin and Sea Lion shows.


We spent our half day of Dec 26 roaming around the Bay area, from the white beach to the US Navy port and the old fortress. We checked out at noon and headed back home.


I was so glad to have treated Papa to a vacation in the West Philippines as it was our last Christmas with him.
