“An Island in Subic? Yes!” That was my reaction when I was given the privilege to join on a blogger’s tour on an Island at the Subic Bay area; it is called the Grande Island Resort. I was too excited that didn’t know what to bring with me, but of course swimming clothes was on top of the list. Off we go, we have to strictly meet-up at 6am so that we can reach the Ferry schedule by 9am, although there is another one schedules at 1pm, I think it is best to get there early so as to start enjoying the day.  I believe we were all excited on this new adventure and what Grande Island could offer. As we boarded the Grande Island Ferry we were allowed to go in front so we can have a glimpse of the beautiful sights, enjoy the cool wind, and be able to see where the Island was. It was a good 20 to 30 minutes of boating, it is not boring since we already saw where we are heading, as we reach the Grande Island I can’t barely contain my emotions.


 And then we finally anchored and were greeted with a glass of orange juice for refreshment. We are a group of 10, and were provided with 5 rooms, 2 persons per room, how cool is that? So we hurriedly grabbed our keys and room assignments so we could already settle with my roomie; Ria. Our room was quite big, high ceiling and could fit at least 6 persons, there were 3 Queen sized beds. At a glance, one could think that the main entrance door of the room was like, oh ok, but the back porch was amazing, there was a garden table that could sit 4 people and a view of nature, I felt relaxed. My husband and I travel together a much as we could, so that moment made me miss him and wished he was also there to see and experience the place. Every time we travel and choose a place to stay, we always check on the place if it’s going to be worth our hard earned money. Grande Island may not be the most fabulous resort I have tried and visited, but it gave me that feeling of being in the province, peaceful, surrounded by nature, not crowded and private. This is a place I could recommend for complete serenity, where you can just sit all day, open a book and not be bothered by anything at all. 


Bikes! There’s a bike station wherein you could rent one and stroll the place, too bad I don’t know how to ride a bike, and I hate it lol! I just settled on pictures though. We were served lunch, and after that was given the go signal that by 2pm we could actually go on trekking the other side of the island. To my surprise, there was a change in activity, we will first do the water activities, and I panicked because I don’t know how to swim either, although I could do some strokes and float knowing that I could step on a ground after. Oh well let’s do this, I was telling that to myself. First up, I heard them say Scuba, and I was like what? What Scuba?! And they cleared that it was the Helmet Diving Activity, the one wherein we would wear a 35kilo helmet that has oxygen in it and we will be walking underwater of about 5meters deep, I think this was also called Reef Walking. We were given instructions on how to do signals under water and then it is a go, I was hesitant, afraid and nervous, I don’t want to freak out in the middle of the activity, so I prayed and asked for strength that I could actually do it, plus the support of blogger friends telling me that I can do it. I chose to be last in our group, we were 5, and other group was doing the banana boat ride. My group were all submerged under water, and then it was my turn, one step at a time and finally reached the bottom, I was reminding myself to be calm, after a few minutes, I was already enjoying the activity, we were given bread to feed the different kinds of fish while one of the scuba diver who assisted us took our pictures, and then a video, and then walk some more, sit, jump and do some sign languages and laugh. It was my first and I will definitely do it again. 




 
 
Next was the banana boat ride, I didn’t join since I already experienced it before, but from the looks of my friends, they had fun. We were supposed to go trekking after, but some of us were too tired and dozed off, then we decided to call it a day and just relax during the rest of the afternoon.  After dinner, we head back to our rooms, but after a few minutes we were all out and gathered to have some chitchats, until we realized that it was just our group who were still up while the whole Island is so quiet and dark although there were a few mini lights I still think that they could add up some more lights in certain areas especially the roads and walkways just in case some might want to take a stroll and enjoy the sea breeze.  I was also looking for a convenience store, yes there were chips at the eatery but I was wondering if they could have a separate store where guests can buy and choose other products aside from what they are offering at the canteen, a typical sari-sari store will be a great addition I guess.


Day 2 after the buffet breakfast, we wanted to make use of our time before we leave the island by 2pm. Some went to do the trekking and I decided to join those who will do the Kayaking, the waves were quite strong and made it impossible for others to actually control the Kayak, when it was already my turn, I fell, my balance didn’t work with those waves, I had some bruises but we had a good laugh of what happened to me, at least I tried. Then we were given the chance to try the Jet Ski, and again because of the strong waves my ride was bumpy but very fun and full of adrenalin rush, I didn’t go on my own since it was my first time and was afraid to fall, I was assisted by one of the staff and because he knew I was nervous, he actually gave me the most thrilling Jet Ski ride of my life. These are just but a few of the activities you, your friends and family can do at Grande island Resort, they also have Horse Back Riding, Zip Line and a huge Swimming Pool since the beach is not yet rock proof but it was okay and was very clean. 


 If you plan to go on a weekend full of activities, not crowdy and enjoy your privacy yet in a place just near the Metro, this is the place to be. Grande Island Resort is one of the places you can check-out.

Samsung Galaxy A Series | Access The A Life



Young consumers can express themselves in greater style through new Samsung Galaxy devices

Manila, Philippines – 04 January 2015 – For the young and upwardly mobile crowd, there’s nothing better than having access to the A life – an awesome lifestyle that lets you freely express yourself and have fun the way you want to. The A life means being able to experience life’s greatest moments and sharing these with your friends.

Those who want to experience the A Life can make it happen with the Samsung Galaxy A series with its slim, stylish and full metal design. Launched last January 14 at Valkyrie, the Samsung Galaxy A Series is Samsung’s first full metal smartphone which features both a stylish design and powerful specs.

Available in three variants (Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3), the A series features a first full metal unibody device that comes in a variety of colors and sizes, and advanced features that bring the Samsung smartphone experience to a new level of functionality.

The Galaxy A Series is Samsung’s slimmest smartphones to date, making them the perfect accessory to go with any get-up. The Galaxy A7 stands at 6.3mm thin, while Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 comes at 6.7mm and 6.9mm, respectively. For the Galaxy A3, there will be Black and White colors. Black, White, Gold, and Silver will be available for Galaxy A5 while Galaxy A7 will come in Black, White, and Gold.  

Sporting an advanced 5MP front-facing camera, it allows you to take better selfies with greater ease than ever—whether you’re bar hopping with friends, lounging at the beach, or exploring a new vacation getaway. Innovative photo-taking features, such as Wide Selfie, Voice and Palm Gestures Activation, Animated GIF, Beauty Face Features (Face Retouch, Eye Enlarge, and Slim Face), and Rear-cam Selfie, let users take photos in high resolution by automatically detecting and focusing on a person’s face.  

Since photos are meant to be shared, you can easily share photos of your A life with friends using your favorite social media channels with the device’s fast network speed of LTE Category 4 standard.

Vivid Display and Powerful Processor

Further, the A Series allows you to expand your entertainment options. Whether you want to play video games or watch films, you will surely love the Galaxy A series Super AMOLED display and Adaptive Display technology, which gives users a more exciting viewing experience. It delivers clearer images with deep contrast and better viewing angles for more vivid, colorful content in virtually any environment, even under bright sunlight.

To ensure that you always enjoy what technology has to offer in every facet of your life, the A Series was made for seamless multi-tasking and faster browsing experience. The A7 features an Octa Core (1.5GHz Quad Core and 1.0 GHz Quad Core) processor while A5 and A3 feature a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor. In addition, the Galaxy A Series sports popular features exclusive to Galaxy devices, such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, Private Mode and Multiscreen, as well as adjustable audio which intelligently adapts and enhances sound output based on the user’s surrounding environment.

The Galaxy A7 is priced at Php 24,990, Galaxy A5 at Php 19,990 and Galaxy A3 at Php 16,990 will be available in Samsung Experience Stores and authorized dealers beginning January 2015.
