CLUB PUNTA FUEGO- Peninsula de Punta Fuego, Batangas

Club Punta Fuego is a world class residential beach resort located in Nasugbu Batangas. This used to be an exclusive resort only open to members/ homeowners and their guests. When I saw the deal being offered on Metrodeal site for 55% off for 2-Days/1-Night Casitas room accommodation, I grabbed the chance to avail without thinking twice! Price was P1,999/pax and  4 vouchers are required per booking. They are now offering it for P1,499/pax! Waaaaaa so unfair! I purchased the vouchers in june and scheduled our trip last Aug 19-20. We were  so ecstatic to be on this beautiful resort!

Perks included:
Inclusive of breakfast and welcome drinks
Shuttle Service within the resort
Unlimited internet access at the lounge
Use of Mountain bikes
15% discount on Spa (massage)
10% discount on Water Sports rental
Access to resort’s facilities such as: game room,swimming pools, squash and tennis courts, beach etc.

Our room was nice, tastefully furnished, spacious with cozy beds but I didn't like the pillows provided. The place has 4 types of  swimming pools. I so love the double infinity pool perched on a cliff edge overlooking the sea! The scenery was awesome! Due to lack of time and the light intermittent rain showers, we were not able to go to the beach but I was able to take a few shots of one of the beaches around the place. There are actually 12 beach coves but only a few are swimmable and some being preserved and  protected.  We had a fantastic time and would recommend this to anybody. It's a  great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city! We'll definitely be back in the future!

Refreshing Screw pine juice served as a welcome drink

Single infinity pool

Because it rained, muds were being washed out from the mountains to the sea reason why the color of the water in the background was brownish.

The beach looks small. Not sure if this is the main beach at Peninsula de Punta fuego

Teddy Graham S'mores Bars

I have been planning for a kiddie picnic but because of the unpredictable weather I always have to postpone it to a later date. These teddy graham s'mores bars are one of the picnic sweet treats I'd like to prepare for the kiddos. I wanted to make a fun looking yummy s'mores that the kiddos will love so I thought of adding teddy grahams for some cuteness. I got around to  making  a few pieces for the kids to taste and they loved them! These have all of the essential elements of a traditional s'mores but I added a little  more pizazz by topping with Teddy Grahams and sprinkling with 100's & 1000's. I love these hershey's milk chocolate drops coz they have no candy shells but pure chocolatey goodness! They came right out of the fridge when I made these smore's bars reason why  I think they didn't melt but they were delightfully soft!

Graham Crackers
Mini Marshmallows
Teddy Grahams
Hershey's milk chocolate drops
100's & 1000's/non pareils sprinkles

I purchased the hershey's milk chocolate drops at S&R and the rest at Landmark Supermarket (Trinoma)

Layer first four ingredients and pop into the oven until marshmallows are puffy and melted. ( I just used a toaster oven.)

100's & 1000's won't stick to the marshmallows so I brushed the marshmallows with sugar syrup (boil 1 part of water and  2 parts of sugar together until it thickens ) before sprinkling. You can also use honey, maple syrup or corn syrup.

Best paired with strawberry milk!

Chewy and crunchy at the same time!

I also spotted this chocolate cookies at S&R but it's also available at Robinsons Supermarket

I just thought of making them more cuter!

I'm calling them huggy's school peanut butter lollies. lol!

Fun snack for kids!

Impromptu Indoor Camping

It has been raining hard non stop and the monsoon rain have caused extensive flooding in various parts of Metro Manila. We are lucky it doesn't flood where we live no matter how hard  the rain pours. Our phone line died and I lost internet connection for 2 days, then my modem died too and needed to be replaced. I couldn't send text messages, no cable connection and couldn't watch TV.  I have collected a few movies to watch so we just had a movie marathon in my sisters bedroom the whole day. The road to the grocery stores were no longer passable due to heavy  flooding. We needed to buy some bread so we went to the nearest 7-11 store but they ran out of stock. We tried going to Mercury drug store but breads were nowhere to be found. People were panic buying! Even instant noodles were out of stock! We tried the nearest bakery but they also ran out of loaf bread but we were able to buy P50 worth of pandesal. We were not running out of food. We just needed to buy some bread for our dinner coz I was craving for spam sandwich. hehe! I usually stock up on snacks for the kids. I have 3 boxes full of snacks in my bedroom so nothing to worry in times like this. The kids won't get hungry coz my bedroom is like a sari sari store full of their favorite snacks! lol! I thought the rain would subside the next day but to no avail! We decided to have an impromptu indoor camping. The kids had a blast!

     Under my (used to be) study table are plastic boxes full of snacks for the kids.

They usually take them to school and some I put in their bento boxes.

Bought this Hello Kitty tent last year when it was on sale.

The kids love this!
