Weekend Getaway: Punta Malabrigo

Punta Malabrigo Beach Resort
Lobo, Batangas
May 22-23, 2010

Learn from us!
If you want to explore and try a different type of beach, go to Malabrigo beach located at the Southern part of Lobo, Batangas. It's a 5-hr drive from Manila, so don't overload your car, make sure you are comfortable. Bring lots of food and water and also don't forget to bring your first aid kit since the nearest convenient store is too far from the beach.

Malabrigo beach isn't the usual kind of beach, it doesn't have powdery, white sand and its not a good snorkelling site either. From shoreline to the underwater, its all stones! But the calm and warm water, the scenery and the breeze of fresh air is quite soothing.

I am not supposed to see this place, but the good people at Finance Department invited me to join their funfilled teambuilding. Together with their organizer, Chang, we prepared games and activities for the whole team.

The not-so-anticipated Experience:
We are suppossed to bound South by 9:00 AM but our driver arrived at around 11:00 AM. The sun was already up and at its hottest temperature. Since the other car was suddenly unavailable, we dont have a choice but to compress ourselves into one L300 FB Van. We are 21 including the driver plus 4 kids, and yes we are pretty much overloaded! and so the car's aircon can't do much about the heat, it can't produce cool air because of excessive heat. Add heavy traffic to our head just want to burst that time but i dont have the right to complain and im glad i was able to hold on. We stopped over at Jollibee for lunch and then the torture continues.

The FUN part!
Finally, we reached the resort by 4:00 PM, after a quick rest everybody dipped into the water to freshen up. Its the best feeling all throughout the day!
We began our activities by 730 Pm, then later in the evening we just lay down at the rocky shoreline for stargazing and enjoy the relaxing ambience.
Everybody swam early in the morning to take opportunity at the calm water and avoid the skin-burning-sunlight! Series of games follows after breakfast...
We start packing by 2:00 PM. I began praying for patience and tolerance aside from protection and i bet you know what happens next...yep, yep, yep! another torturing trip...whew!!!
