Zambales: A Beach Haven

Summer is soon to be gone and since today is #ThrowbackThursday, let me share to you one of our Beki Bodies happened in 2010 at Zambales, Philippines.

We boarded a Victory Liner bus from Monumento to Pundaquit, Zambales.

We arrived early on time so some of us decided to go to the market while others prepared breakfast - right in the house of our contact tourist guide.

Though the sand isn’t as fine as a powder, the scenery automatically pulled us down.
And so the island became an instant photo shoot set.

The things that are not in Manila provides simple joy.
The woods were not enough. Good thing there were mallows. :)

It was not in the schedule so we weren’t prepared with our outfits.

If I knew it would be like this, I would’ve brought my umbrella, knowing myself.
Half break for pictorials.

Every moment should be captured.

Truth is, there was no phone signal in Capones and Nagsasa. Thus, we never contact anyone since the day before.
