Lake Pandin, San Pablo Laguna

Like any other posts, this too is a long overdue one. But nonetheless still worth posting.
There were some discussions as to where we will have our annual summer outing. It was supposed to be in Hong Kong, but of course the cost was high. Then moved to Boracay, then everyone says near Manila so they were trying to have Batangas in the picture. I have been researching some of the places you could visit for a day without incurring a lot of cost as well as being able to help the community that takes care of the place.

I chance upon Lake Pandin a couple of months back when I was trying to research for some place I could go either alone or with friends. Lake Pandin is one of the 7 lakes in San Pablo, Laguna where the water can go as deep as 180 feet.

It takes about 2 to 3 hours drive to this place and would only cost you about Php 380 per person, which includes a 2-3 hour lake tour/trip and lunch. This place was very peaceful. If you want to get out of the city for a short while and be one wi…

Overnight Stay in Labuan, Malaysia

I was planning on having just a two-part travel post about my 6-day trip last March 26-April 1, 2013, one for Brunei and the other for Kota Kinabalu, but I have got to pay heed to Labuan, Malaysia. Now this may not be the usual stop over for most traveling to Kota Kinabalu from Brunei. But I have to give it space here in my blog. No, the beach was not comparable to Kota Kinabalu, to Boracay or to Palawan for that matter but we appreciated our overnight stay here. 

We were so tired from our travels and our 1 day stay in Brunei that before we left the Philippines, we had to make sure we stay in Labuan for 1 day, just to rest and get some energy. This was our purpose, to relax and not rush into anything. So here is how we got to Labuan via Brunei and our relaxing stay in Papaya’s Beach Lodge.
