Pradera Wake Park

A week after we had fun wake boarding at Republic Wake Park, we tried out this still relatively new wake park at Pampanga.

Pradera Wake Park, I think, is the newest wake park in Luzon. It is roughly 1.5 hours away from Quezon City. It has 2 beginner lakes, 1 big lake and 1 VIP lake. The place also has lots of rooms/cottages for rent which has its own shower room (unlike in Republic where there is only a common shower room). Each room has 3 beds and can accommodate up to 6 persons.

Pros:
- newer than republic
- lots of boards to choose from and most of them are still new (unlike in republic where a lot of the boards are in a bad shape already)
- cable operators are nicer
- less people even during weekends
- own bathroom if you rent a room
- rooms are big (has fridge, TV, closet, coffee table and chair and balcony)
- average priced food
- has knee board - free to use
- has ski - free to use
- the guard let me bring my "baon" food inside since we are renting a room

Cons:
- no night time wake boarding
- closes at 5pm
- food taste is not that great
- very few food choices
- no nearby stores and restaurants
- the side/edges of the lakes have "pebbles" - super sharp edges of the rock that hurts the feet
- weird helmet sizes
- heavy helmet
- big life jackets - goes up to your face when you fall in the water


Below are some pictures that I have taken during the trip plus a not so nice video of me wake boarding (I had lots of successful runs but the only video that M ever took of me was the one where I fell face first!):









So, which one do I prefer? 
Pradera!


Directions:
Take North Luzon Expressway (NLEX)
Take San Fernando exit (SM Pampanga)
Go straight on the Olongapo-Gapan road (takes about 20-30 mins)
Pradera is on the right side just after the Genesis bus station

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

November starts tomorrow! I can start my countdown to my most awaited vacation... excited!

I did not attend any Halloween party this year and I am badly missing last year's Halloween party at Boracay with my office friends (miss you guys!).

Anyway, expect heavy traffic today and tomorrow as a lot of people are going to be flocking the cemeteries and provinces.

Let me leave you with a couple of my outfits last week:

Cache Cache top
Express skirt
Havaianas slippers

Zara top
Warehouse skirt
Aldo shoes


Keep safe always!

AGS Fiesta Year 2

It is our second time to attend the annual Ateneo Grade School Fiesta (school fair). I have learned a lot of from last year's event so this time around I planned everything that we will do during the Fiesta.

Last year:
- We had a hard time looking for a parking space because even if we arrived 2 hours before the scheduled activity. 
- The lines for ALL the rides are very long (all under the heat of the sun!)
- I forgot to bring extra shirts for G so he was sweaty all day
- Bottled water and bottled juice are super expensive
- We weren't able to use all the ride tickets because of the very long line, so we had to go back to the fair the following day just to use up all the ride tickets.

This year:
- We were in Ateneo at 6:19 AM and the parking areas are almost full!
- I brought lots of extra shirts for G.
- I brought my own bottled water and bottled juices.
- Since we got to school very early, we were able to enjoy the rides without the very long line and waiting time.
- We were able to use all 12 parlor games and 11 ride tickets in one day!



Here are some pictures during the Fiesta:
