Paradise Beach

We went to Paradise Beach last week to unwind a bit, dati karamihan ng mga tourist na nagpupunta dito ay mga Japanese. Recently, para na rin akong nasa Europe because as we were there…I met couples from different parts of Europe. Like Sweden, Norway, Italy, Austria and Germany.

Paradise Beach is just a small resort, pero dinadayo ng maraming turista because their price is affordable. I booked for 3 nights kaya lang umuwi na kaagad kami after 2 days dahil nilagnat si Gillian. This is not the first time he got sick since we are here. Kaya nagpasya na lang akong umuwi na ngayong March 3 instead of April 11 dahil sa kanya. He lose weight dahil ayaw kumain, buti na lang umiinom siya ng gatas. Ako sana ang dapat pumayat pero imposible itong mangyayari dahil sa katakawan. Uuwi na lang kami in fairness to my little boy. I’m afraid na kong magtagal kami dito, baka siya ay maging buto’t balat na lang kong talagang sa April 11 pa kami uuwi.
Sayang nga, but as a mother I’d rather sacrifice my vacation rather than seeing my son in bad shape while here.

Ito ang sinakyan naming bangka papunta sa Samal
Island kong saan matatagpuan ang Paradise Beach. Dahil sa takot na baka malunod ang bangkang ito dahil sa sakay na balyena (which is me) I looked around para siguraduhin kong saan nakalagay ang kanilang life vest.

Si mother na nagbabantay ng kanyang anak na gustong laging nakalublob tubig. Naging uling na kulay ko ngayon, kahit anong pahid ang ginawa ko ng sunblocker. Siguro ngipin na lang ang makikita sa akin sa dilim.

Ang batang anak ng sirenang walang buntot.

Na nag ilusyon na siya ay si Pamela Anderson sa Baywatch na walang boobs. Lumala ang ilusyon ng naturang ina dahil sa sobrang init.

A pose with my parents after taking our dinner at the beach restaurant. We stayed there ’til 10:00 p.m, sipping our cocktails while listening the Harana. I was a bit drunk after sipping a couple of Margarita kaya I am grinning in the picture like as if I’m in heaven. Yikes!!!

Beng Hafner is my name. Well, most of you know that already. I am a mother of 3 and a granny of 3 cute kids. I am proud to be who I am and I am proud of the way I am. I am alive because I have a lot to live for. I have many dreams that I wish to reach for and I have many journeys to make. My life is like a soap opera, and you are the audience.

    Hi Beng! Nice to see you are enjoying your stay and having a blast with your parents,too. That place really looks like a paradise,ang ganda ng beach.When I go there in 2007,you have to tell me the details! šŸ™‚
    Too bad Gillian is not coping well,must be the heat and of course,the food. I remember when my eldest was his age and could not eat anything but noodles and milk. Like you, napauwi rin kami ng wala sa schedule.

    Take care and kisses to Gillian. Daddy must be missing him a lot already!

    Hay Mamma, hindi pa naman gaanong payat si Gillian. Ganyan talaga kasi nga mainit diyan compared to Germany. Mabuti nga yon at nabawasan ang kanyang taba. Ganyan din ang aking mga anak kung umuuwi kami. Kain sila ng kain pero nangangayayat pa rin. As long as nag-e-enjoy ba siya eh. Ang lagi ko lang inaalagaan eh yung uminom sila ng hindi filtered na tubig. Alam mo, diyan sila nadadale, sa tubig. Ako netong huling uwi ko, talaga namang tinamaan ako..gawa ng nanibago ang katawan ko sa tubig. Nitong uwi namin ng December, pinaghandaan ko na. Magdadala ako ng filter. Sana gumana sa atin ano?

    PS, ganda ng beach.

    Sash, are you really planning to visit Davao coming 2007? Great idea, I am sure you will enjoy your stay here. Paradise Beach also offer island hopping which really interest me but because of Gillian hindi ko na itinuloy. Anyways, aside from Paradise Beach there’s also Eden Park Resort. So if you’re seeking peace, tranquility and true re-creation of the Self. Eden Nature Park is the place for you. They have cottages and villas to rent. Sayang I have no pics from there because I forgot to bring my camera. What a pity…the place is superb.

    Pareho pala tayo ng experience regarding our kids. Saka na lang ako babawi kong malaki na siya. Best regards my dear and talk to you soon! Take super care.

    Mommy, I just can’t understand why Gillian is having LBM here since I extra bought mineral water for him to drink. Hindi lang yan, he often has fever too. Ewan ko ba kong bakit. But anyways, tama na rin ang four weeks sa akin. I miss my family na rin kasi. Most specially when my daughter cries on the phone and keep on telling me she misses me. Nakakalungkot.

    Best regards mommy dear and have a nice day. god bless.

    wow sexy naman! you all seem to be enjoying the sun ha? while here, sa ngayon, panay ang snow. kahit nga sa Paris na bihirang mag-snow, ilang araw na ring babad. super lamig pa!
    too bad at me sakit si gillian, don’t worry lilipas din agad yan.
    hey, type na type ko yung last photo, para bang nang-aakit ka hahaha! ^_^
    o sya keep us updated ha? ikumusta mo na lang kami sa mga parents mo.

    take care of yourselves! ^_^

    bok, tutuo pala ang sinabi ng darling ko na parang nasa ice age na daw ang europe ngayon. i told him pa naman na mas matitiis ko ang lamig kaysa init. eh super init kasi dito. kong pwede lang na band-aid ang isusuot ko ay ginawa ko. well, siyempre it makes a lot of difference kong nasa beach ka, talaga namang ang sarap ng simoy ng hangin.

    i look like nang-aakit? ahehehe, dahil si me ay tipsy.
    thanks for being here my dear and take care too. keep yourself warm at all times para ikaw baga ay hindi sisipunin. take care and have a pleasant day.

    mommy beng, ang lupit mo! init, araw, buhangin, margaritas…huhuhu. kami snow, ice, hielo, more snow…
    malulungkot ang lolo’t lola ata pero wawa naman si gillian. tried some yogurt or yoplait? i gave my #1 son yakult everyday when we were there last, inuunahan ko na ang mga sakit. he got skinny from the heat too. oh well, you can come visit them again when he’s a bit older and tummy’s stronger. enjoy the rest of the bakasyon..ingat din.

  15. Beng says:

    stell, huwag ka nang mainggit dahil pareho na tayong nandito sa malamig na lugar. but frankly speaking i most welcome this chilly weather…i no longer sweat like crazy. short reply lang muna tayo dahil hinihila na ako ni mister…ewan ko kong saan kami punta (ngeek, playing innocent kuno) take care and talk to you very soon.

  16. Beng says:

    thess, lokaaa…back home na si me! kahapon ng hapon lang kami dumating dito sa bahay dahil we stayed overnite at my sis place. we arrived in frankfurt last friday late afternoon. i had a terrible jet lag, it was risky for me to drive home dahil sobra ang antok ko. ahem! tamang-tama yong term na ginamit mo ah…ms. pomelo dahil kasing bilog na nga naman ako ngayon ng pomelo eh. hubby was shock to see me. si gillain ay laging nagkakasakit doon kaya nga i decided to go home early na lang dahil di rin kami nag enjoy ng husto. oo nga may yaya siya pero pag may sakit ang bata nanay pa rin ang hinahanap. saka na lang kami babawi pag malaki na siya.

  17. Beng says:

    hi sachiko, sorry dear i wasn’t able to login here for a few days kaya di ko na moderate ang mga comments. i’m sitting at my very own pc na, but can’t stay long dahil yakap-yakap ako nitong mga sakop ko ngayon. see how they miss me. just wondering if my hubby will keep embracing me if he will see my credit card bills. talk to you later and have a nice sunday.

  18. Stel says:
