P A R A D I S E F O U N D .
Standing at the near end of Northern Cebu is our family rest house with beautiful beach front. A road trip of three hours feels like stepping into a completely different world where stress does not exist.
This is my favourite place — you will see tall coconut trees, 360-view of the sky, feel the cool breeze, and hear the soothing sound of the sea waves.
It’s where I disconnect to connect.
No stress, no wifi, and no social media.
It’s a perfect time and place to do the things you can’t seem to do in the city! Yoga by the beach, drink fresh coconut, breathe in fresh air.
What I love to do when I’m here is to go to the beach front, fall in a trance staring at the view and listen to the waves crashing into the shore. It’s how I empty my mind.
Sometimes, I think, reflect and/or pray.
Celebrate. Escape. Keep calm.
To me, not only is this an abode of serenity. Our rest house is also a place of unity, bringing people together.
Whatever the season and whatever the reason — birthday, sembreak, boredom, summer vacation, family bonding, friends outing or when there are visitors — we’re here.
If there’s one thing in my life I can’t let go of, it would be this rest house. It’s my go-to-escapade and it’s the best blessing that my grandfather worked so hard for.
I grew up here.
I played in the sand, I swam from 9am-3pm (stopping only to eat, thus my dark skin colour growing up), I chased crabs and collected seashells.
It’s the best beach I’ve known all my life.
So to my home away from home for 23 years, I love you always.
Always keep your sunny side up!
