Day 2: Fun activities, Malacanang of the North and Paoay Lake

Hey there!  Day 2 started with a blast!  We ended the day with a lot of excitement!  Check out our "jump shot" below taken before the Day 1 activities ended.  This was taken at Fort Ilocandia.


Woke up early morning and had a nice buffet breakfast at Fort Ilocandia  They served local dishes plus the usual Continental Style breakfast.  I had a bit of everything and of course, COFFEE to start my day!


I got giddy like a kid when I was told our first activity for Day 2 Road Trip is to give ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) a try!  As a boring girl who works and lives in Manila most of my life!  I am only aware of "Go Carting" or "bump cars" *laughs*  This All-Terrain-Vehicle ride at the sandy dunes of the resort made me relax and enjoy the scenery and experience! 

What else but a quick pose before the ride
L-R Me, Ada and Hannah

That's me, smiling giddily even with a helmet.  Getting the hang of this and trying to show off my skill ... LOOKIE! No hands!!! The bragging only lasted a couple of seconds though..oh well!  Good times...


I have to say, today, there's so many firsts!  I also played golf and for a first timer?  Thank goodness I did not hit anyone!  I did not have a shot of this as I got my hands and head full!  The right posture, the right swing...and of course, making sure to  hit the golf ball! :P


We visited the Marcos's Residence in which they call the Malacanang of the North (Palace or White House of the North)


You can see the Paoay Lake at the Balcony!  If I live in a house that overlooks a nice lake, I will never leave my house! :D

As I was checking out the place, a cute dog greeted me and he's obviously happy with the wigging tail!  I wanted to touch him but he's scared!  I do miss my 3 Poms back home!


I will report back tomorrow about the remaining adventure of Day 2!  And of course, be sure to visit back as I will post another question for Day 2 Contest!  Again, it's Php1,000 worth of Vaseline Products!!!

And if I started this post with a jump shot, let me end this post with another shot for all of you! :D

** isn't Ada crazy great with jumpshots?


It's super hot and humid today, thank goodness I've done my part to protect my skin. (Thanks to Hannah for this shot)



Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!
