Homecoming Queen


Happy to share with you photos from last weekend at the beach. Instead of us bringing balikbayan Ericke to places, she gave us her happy place. Lynne made us suman with lots of ladek to enjoy after lunch at Kapuluan Vista Resort. All we did was laugh and relish her presence. Before sunset, we headed south to Bergblick for an early dinner. A day of precious moments.

Pagudpud Beach Rules

Surf Sunday

A summer’s day in December. From Kapuluan Vista Resort to Kingfisher in Capirispisan, two worlds apart divided by pursuits. If surfing is your thing, KVR rules. Boards and instructors won’t be a point of issue. If you want to ride the wind, then head to Kingfisher, the only resort in Ilocos that offers kite surfing.

Enjoy the Pagudpud photos…

Eugene on Board

Ivon and I chilled out and took photos of Ericke, Euge and Brandon while being taught by Jed and Sherwin the basics of surfing. Having surfed on and off from the time the dad brought her to pro surfer Luke Landrigan in San Juan (La Union) when she was preteen to the present, Ericke is naturally drawn to the waves.

We have a mutual love for the ocean, but no one among us has ever kite surfed. Controlling the board and the kite must be demanding. Anyhoo, the rustic appeal of Kingfisher will make you want to stay around longer.

Ultimately, the most essential rule at the beach is to love the beach.

Summer in September

Dos Hermanos

We’ve been blessed with good weather lately. Where else to go but the beach. Lunch was lovely, fresh and organic at the Kapuluan Vista Resort. Margaritas and Creamsicles were lovelier at least to someone who’s been on the go the past days. We were in Manila Friday and Saturday. Expect a bunch of photos to follow.

Hope you are all well. Happy Monday once again, dear readers.
