On the 5th of June 2012, our BRAIN TRAIN family went to Anvaya Cove, an exclusive, members-and-guests only resort located in Morong, Bataan, all thanks to the sponsorship of my friend Light Manuel’s dad, Engr. Bienvenido Manuel.
Our three vehicles (an L300 FB, a pick-up, and an SUV) left Los Banos at 4:45 a.m. and carried 26 BRAIN TRAIN teachers, office assistants, drivers, house help, and of course Raviv. I was with Randy (driver), Raviv (of course on his car seat), Yaya Isay, and Raviv’s Ninong Irvin.
Because we were much faster, we arrived in Morong way ahead of the others. Instead of proceeding to Anvaya Cove right away, we decided to look for nearby beach houses that will be cheaper (there were almost 30 of us, and renting a beach house within Anvaya for all of us will be soooo expensive). We visited about 3-4 houses until we settled on this:
We chose this because its beach front was wide (sorry, no photo), and it was roomy. We could have swum in the morning if not for the fact that many of our companions were in a hurry to go home. I think we paid about P10,000 for this.
Anyway, after our overnight beach house hunting, we proceeded to Anvaya. It took us some minutes to get to the resort entrance from the main Anvaya entrance. Sponsored guests by the way may only go there on weekdays, and the first 20 guests have to pay P450/head (of which P250 is consumable in the resort) while the rest have to pay P1,000 each (again, P250 is consumable). A baby or toddler and the baby/toddler’s nanny are not included in the headcount and are free of charge.
As expected from an exclusive resort, it was clean, well-maintained, tastefully decorated, and has very accommodating staff. So as expected, our first activity was…cam whoring!
Here are some breathtaking vistas at Anvaya:
Too bad I was very sleepy that day because I slept at about 1 a.m. (because I watched Corazon Ang Unang Aswang on DVD the night before) and woke up at 4 a.m. I also was not able to sleep during our trip because Randy, Irvin, and I were talking.
Thus, I spent most of the morning on the lounge chair, trying to sleep while the others were having so much fun by the beach.
It’s getting pretty late and I still have a class in Sta. Rosa tomorrow so I have to cut this. Wait for Part Deux
Update: THIS IS PART DEUX, the continuation :)
