continued from The BRAIN TRAIN Family Anva-yeah Getaway Part 1
Though I was lethargic, I was restless and can’t really sleep on the beachfront lounge chair, comfy as it may be. So I dragged myself to change into my swimwear and swam in the pool. While walking to and from the pool, I saw a disparate pool for babies and toddlers tucked near the main pools. I got excited for Raviv and called him and his Tatay to go swimming there.
In case you’re wondering why I’m wearing the mustard yellow polo over my maillot monokini, ask Randy. Hrmpft (He wanted me to wear a Speedo-type maillot, as if I’ll be joining a swimming competition!). He kept on glaring at me every time I walk around wearing my swimsuit sans a cover-up, even though we were surrounded by girls and women wearing two-piece swimsuits. And that prompted me to just stay with my son, as my co-BRAIN TRAIN teachers were running around, playing mataya-taya, Frisbee, agawan base, and volleyball (my least fave sport, so thanks but no thanks) in their swimsuits sans any cover-up.
Anyway, I later realized that Anvaya was so family-friendly! Adjacent to the kids’ swimming pool was its own shower room (no need to share with the adults’). Plus, an outdoor playground and an indoor playroom! Here are the photos of the outdoor playground:
While here are photos of the indoor playroom:
The playroom had a variety of things to entertain kids–from stuffed animals to educational toys to even books! It was also cool and cozy there.
Aside from the pool for babies and toddlers, the indoor playroom, and the outdoor playground, Anvaya even has a room where toddlers and their guardians can rest (thank God, because earlier I was berating Yaya Isay for forgetting to bring Raviv’s stroller where Raviv could sleep).
This is actually where I got my siesta after I showered and decided I will no longer swim. It was cool (see the airconditioning unit above the guardian’s bed, covered by the rectangular wooden thingy?) and comfy there. Raviv slept soundly, and so would I have been had it not been for the fact that the noise from the swimming pool and shower room was very audible. Anyway, I’m not complaining, as it was waaaaay more than I expected. Raviv was only roused from his sleep when Tatay Randy entered the room and woke us up (after getting envious that we had such a place to rest) to enjoy the rest of the day.
