Hongkong Get Away with Russ

The journey starts by taking a Partas bus from Vigan City to Laoag City, Me and Russ stayed in Fort Ilocandia for a night, we had a relaxing time in the hotel. After dinner we went for a long walked along the beach holding hands, it was a balmy night was lovely, the sky was full of twinkling star. After a nice long walk we decided to hit the sack early.

We are flying from Laoag Airport to Manila then to Hongkong.  The big kids are out and about in Hongkong. We spend 2 nights and 3 days there. We arrived in Hongkong in the evening our private car provided by the hotel greeted us in airport, that evening we decided to laze around the hotel, and the following day we went around Hongkong's tourist spots.

On our last day we went to Disneyland. We went around all the rides, it was fun, its so good and feels nice to be young again even just for a day.

Philippine Holiday with Russ

It was a blissful holiday in the Philippines with Russ. It was arranged for a month vacation to visit my family and to stroll around my hometown  Vigan City....Stroll along the Vigan Heritage Plaza during night and day was fun , Russ was very impress with the preserved structural building of the spanish houses... Nice to just sit at the plaza and watch the day passed by or a ride in a tricycle or Caleza (horse drawn carriage). 
We went to different beaches in Ilocos to Pagudpud... lovely white beaches sun bathing swimming or just laze around reading book by the beach was not a bad option. Every day family occassion with the Casica & Retreta Clan; Russ also had his birthday in Vigan with a big celebration, Russ was amazed with the whole  hog roast ( tradition in every special occassion ) hmmmmm was lovely cracklings and yummy...

Whole Hog Roast

We were stranded in the Philippines due to volcanic ash .... but saying that we have enjoyed the 2 weeks extension of our holiday... we went to boracay one of the picturesque island in the Philippines ... deep blue sea, white sand and cool water sports facilities...... i have enjoyed snorkeling, a ride with the glass bottom boat ( nemo boat) marine walk( helmet dive) had a chance to feed the fishes and it was a fantastic experience...... Russ had a chance to go scuba diving; and i think that it would be my list of  adventure next time we will go on a beach holiday...........It was wonderful and very relax feeling as we sit close together holding hands as we watching the sunset, then head off to a beach bar to have a nice cocktail  just before a sumptous dinner to choose from seafood, indian cuisine, mexican, italian, steak house... and after dinner go for a nice long walk till we reached the hotel and collapse in each others arms for a cuddle till we drift off to sleep and waking up with a bright sunrise with a smile with each others face to welcome a brand new day of laziness (lol).
