Take an Extreme Adventure or Just Chill at Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa

The last weekend of February had us driving to UPLB to fetch Ralph who went on an overnight debate competition. Since February 25 was declared as an official holiday, we thought that it would be the best time to spend the night at a resort in Los Baños. It was a last minute decision so I failed to reserve us a room at the Makiling Onsen Spa. Thankfully, Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa was just a few hundred meters and a phone call away.

It was actually my husband first discovered Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa. He saw a viral post on Facebook about it and tagged me. I didn't realize that it was also located in Los Baños until our car drove past its signage along the highway. Luck was on our side when I booked because there were still a few rooms available. As the night passed, we saw guests coming and checking in the rooms beside ours.

August 5, 2009, Philippine Special Non-Working Holiday

Former Philippine President Corazon C. Aquino's remains will be laid to rest on Wednesday, August 5, 2009, at the Manila Memorial Park. To give all Filipinos a chance to witness another historic event and pay their last respects to this great woman, Malacañang Palace has declared the day as a special non-working holiday.

I was part of the Filipino population whose eyes were glued to the television this noon as President Aquino's remains were transferred from La Salle Greenhills to Manila Cathedral. From ABS-CBN's coverage I have learned that the former President was the only lay person allowed by the Catholic church to be interred at the Manila Cathedral. The crowds that gathered along EDSA and Ayala Avenue today showed that Cory still had the power to unite Filipinos for a common cause. Today was different from them all because the people gathered not for a political cause but to remember this great woman who restored democracy to this nation.
