Big Pool At D Leonor

So we took their mini cab for us to get to the big pool. I really thought that Faith could not enjoy it there but thank GOD that the pool is not too deep and beside the big pool, there was actually a kiddie pool too. On the 2nd thought the big pool also have a shallow part.  What we enjoyed there  is the slide, it is long and its round but not that long as Blue Jazz had.

I also like the bucket on the top that when it is full, it will pour so hard on the slide going to the pool. Faith would always exclaimed. “Extreme!”

We definitely got wet but we had so much fun!

We did not spend out there for long, it was almost 5 in the afternoon at that time and we don’t have planned to stay out late. Faith was disappointed since she really like to stay for hours there, but I promised her she can get some carousel rides she agreed with me, only to find out that the rides there were busted.

Till next post.

Swimming Pool In Grand Menseng Hotel

Good thing that my husband brought a swim wear with him, so when I and the kids decide to go to the pool on the last day of our stay there in Grand Men Seng, he joined us after a while. The pool was 25 meter, and I already heard that there is a team for swimming using the pool for training. I mean it is just so rare for hotels to offer it for training, mostly I mean I guess all of the hotels here do not allow coaches to do their training because it can bother the guests who would like to do lapse. Anyway since I understand the life of a swimmer, my kids and I just used one lane, Mj can swim so she can do the lapse, Faith and I just try to soak in the corner. Faith can swim but not proper and she easily gets tired that she catches her breath afterwards.

Mj on the other hand, expected to meet a friend there but sad to say she is not familiar with the kids in that team. I heard her friends are not present on that day. We still enjoyed our short swimming lapses especially when Daddy joined us. He tried to teach Faith to swim but of course Faith would just play.

The swimming pool in that hotel obviously is not design for leisure; it doesn’t have slides and all. The guests can really do lapses back and forth; it is the best for exercise.

Post Holiday Activity In Apo View Hotel

After New Year, my friend and I including Mj went to Apo View Hotel for swimming. I dragged Mj with me since it has been a while that she was not able to swim and I know so well that she already missed swimming. And since we have our passes to the pool, we went to the Diamond Club Desk first so we can get a stamp for our ticket. It was a gloomy day, no sun came out so we were so excited then only to find out that the water in the pool is so cold. Oh well at first, I guess the establishment does not have heater on their pool or do they have to put heather in every pool here, I guess not though but I wonder why their water is cold unlike at the other pool that we visited mostly their water is warm.


This is me and my friend, striking a pose in the water. It is an outdoor pool, so we can feel the cool breeze of the wind.


After dipping in the pool, I called it dipping since I really don’t swim, oh well I don’t know how to swim only my daughter does, we went to Café Josefina to have a cup of coffee, Mj ordered a hot milk, which she loves the most. We also had a bite of their carrot cake. We spent talking at the coffee shop, it was still raining though and yeah until now. I hope the rain stops so the kids are having easy trip on the road on their way to school.
