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.

We availed of the Small Group Overnight Package for 4 which cost us 1,500 each.

Beauty's 20K km Check

Today, we are 10 thousand pesos poorer. The family car finally underwent its first 20 thousand kilometer check up. Although it's really a pain in the pockets, I'm still glad to know that there was nothing major to fix.

Aside from having the usual car parts checked such as its head gasket, we also asked the casa guys to check the air conditioning of our car. I was afraid that we had to have a freon refill, or worse, have the air conditioning repaired but all it needed was to have the filters cleaned. Everything was a-ok so to say and we are so relieved.

We take our cars' maintenance schedules seriously. Even our 98 Honda City is well-maintained. In fact, we just had its body repainted during the summer season. I remind my husband to never sell the car even when its old already for sentimental reasons. Even my cousin who's in LA is jealous of our Honda. She and her husband were planning to buy a Honda Civic but ended up having a Ford because she says Japanese cars are more expensive in the States. I find it weird because American cars are more expensive here. Like us, they also save money just in case their car needs to be brought to a Los Angeles auto repair shop.

It's hard to be stuck in the middle of the road somewhere with a car that's broken down. So, if you're a car owner, prioritize your car's maintenance checks to avoid the hassle.
