An Instant Dip - Aqua Pool Party and A Feel of A Tech-Savvy Marine Theme Park

How often do you go out to socialize and mingle with lots of people? And when you get to participate to these kinds of events, how fast does it get to your circles?

People nowadays want other people (in their own circles) to know their own whereabouts - where they dine, what they had, who they were with. Social media sites specifically Facebook and Twitter have been the favorite tools used by most Filipinos to connect with their friends real time. The virtual world has been more accessible with the help of the latest gadgets currently available in the market.

In today's demand for advanced digital technology and an evolving online lifestyle, Manila Ocean Park introduces the latest technology to become the leading tech-savvy theme park in the country. I'm one of the lucky people to have a first hand experience as they go High Tech. ;)

The Event

A Lawless Love - Illustration

Keij Ejercito Delayed Law Student

Jing aka 'Keij Ejercito' is taking law at San Beda College. It amazes me how she comes up with cheesy posts about LOVE and LAW while completing her studies in a law school. Got this idea adopted from her post called "A Lawless Love: Para sa mga Law Students na Nagmahal, Nagmamahal at Magmamahal Pa Lang". Enjoy!

Swim, Luxe, and the Style Icons - i love koi's Swimwear Fashion Show

I've blogged about Summer Pretty Preps and Must Haves last month and it was only then I appreciated and literally fell in love with the different swimwear collections I found online. The best of the swim suits are here in the Philippines, oh my!

One of the local online stores that I've been secretly spying on for swimwear collection is i love koi. They have a variety of designs and styles for different body types, something that other online stores don't have .

 i love koi is also the pioneer maker of high waist  bottom in the Philippines which was inspired by vintage swim wear tweaked with a modern twist. Their shades of blue, orange and pink are my favorite.

Taking Coffee Religiously - Cafe Dominic

I'm on phase 1 of my quarter life crisis and I am endlessly evolving. Experience are great teachers, real friends will keep you up. I'm keeping myself busy with what I've learned from everyday living and I will seek more knowledge and training. Snapshots keeps me going, one reason I can't let go of the very first dslr I own. People say it's quite an old model (a canon 450D, my dearest "Cancan") but who cares? I own it and I'm gonna use it anyway.

For some reason, I've been indulging myself with Photoshop and Lightroom these past few weeks and suddenly came up with another photo watermark.  I'm gonna use this for copyright purposes. Pinterest has been very helpful too, my pinboards helped me a lot to organize the things I love and things I want to see. Inspirations indeed.

Summer of 2012 - Eagle Point Resort

I failed to finish Jenson Taylor's 7day Blogging Challenge last week, I wasn't able to touch my blog since Sunday. I really need to start working on my schedule. When things gets messy and when unnecessary events comes in, that's where dilemma starts. :( I failed.

* * * 

But happiness never fails, especially fun and excitement. We just had our company summer outing last Saturday and so far, it was one of the best days of my 2012.

We were able to visit one of the famous beach resorts in Batangas - Eagle Point Resort

Warning: photo dump ahead. Beware of the breath taking view, I'm so proud of the beaches we have here in the Philippines.

We were all welcomed by this scenic view - I cried with happiness when I saw the blue skies and the blue seas!

MV Angelica  - the Sepoc Island Vessel
We went to the famous Sepoc Island transported by this vessel. It's a 20-minute boat ride from Eagle Point Resort.

We were all in awe when we saw this from afar:

A welcome greeting in rock formation by the seashore! This really made all of our employees happy! How sweet of Eagle Point Resort's Management!

There's so much that you can do at Sepoc Island. Aside from the usual swimming, snorkeling, and sun bathing, they also have an area where you can play games with your team - volleyball, relay games, etc. If you're not quite satisfied and want more, you may try rappelling on the other side of the island or climb your way up the mountain peek to get an awesome view of the cove. Just make sure you have the right equipment with you. 

And of course, don't forget to take photos of the awesome little things!

We all went back to Eagle Point Resort to rest and spend the rest of our 2-day vacation. Dining was good too, just beware that if you plan on getting their buffet meals, you have enough space to fill your stomach with LOTS of food. 

Here are the rest of the photo dump. Enjoy!

This is my favorite photo, the sky is amazing.

A view of Eagle Point's bay side.

This is where most of the guests of Eagle Point spend their day diving, the water is so clear.

My tiny feet touched the shark pool. YAY!

The sunset. Need I say more?

A view of the cottages. Eagle Point's Cottages and Cabanas are perfect for a group of  4 people.

The Shark Pool. There are about 5-7 baby sharks here, with other underwater thingies.

And I shall end my post with this:

The happy people of Tridel Technologies, makers of iManila and iRepublic
