Relaxing Family Getaway at the Aquafarm

We had fun enjoying the holiday in Tanay, Rizal at JCM's Aquafarm with the mountain, river and all the beauty of the nature.  We booked our two-day holiday at the camp and rented an A-nipa hut, a big tent and a kitchen and wash area all to ourselves.  We have a nice very close view of the mountains and the river at the front of our hut and tent.  You could say that we have a riverfront accommodation :-). Our staycation is somewhat different from our usual beachfront vacations in the past because people in the camp site are only few and we each have our own place. The place has enough guests in the place but we're not crowded giving us a very relaxed vibe.  

We had our short bible study while the bonfire is just a few meters away which is just enough to warm the place and get rid of some flying insects.  I can't believe wearing jacket on a summer season but it's really cold in the night especially that we stayed in the river up to early evening and returned to our rented area when we can't stand the cold waters anymore.  It was a really a nice experience for us.  We spent the following day just having coffee at the front of the river, roamed the place and spent many hours swimming in the clear river water.  We picked up few stones there and dreamed that we still have another day to spare before coming back in the city.  Going home is both sad and happy. We'll go back again next time.  God is so good that He gave us a chance to enjoy His wonderful creations.    


A Visit to Mom's Farmland

It took us several years to finally visit my Mom's farmland in our hometown.  I never thought that I would be able to have a chance to go and hike in the mountainous farmland considering my knees' condition but when I finally reached the land I was so happy and grateful that God has guided us in our steep walk to the mountain. When we reached the highest point of the land I was amazed at the nature's beauty that greeted us atop the mountain.  It was so beautiful and the air we breathe smells so differently.  The cloud feels nearer, the air is cold, pure and so fresh.  

I'm grateful that we decided to start taking care of the land.  We actually wanted to see if the land can possibly be a camp site and we're glad that the land has spring water there which can be our source of drinking water.  The land also has a mini falls and river below which made my jaw drop because it's so beautiful and serene, makes me wonder if I'm just seeing it in documentary films about nature, but it's really there at the foot of the mountain.  The caretaker cooked us some native chicken and picked some coconut fruit for our water and desserts.  Anyway there are plenty of crops there and we enjoyed some new recipes using only their crops.  It was a relaxing day filled with laughter and we really enjoyed our day away from the hustle and bustle of the city, at the top of the mountain planning how to turn the land into a farm camp site. We promised ourselves to visit again in the next following weeks,
