An “Olympus” Getaway

You might be asking why I named the title, “Olympus.” The answer is just so simple: we used an Olympus camera for taking the photos here. (Silly, eh?)

As you can see at the photo captions, they were taken on May 19, 2012 – they day in which I was supposed to be sponsoring to my friend, Angelica Joy’s debut. I was baffling, then, when I learned that we’ll be going here to attend another birthday party. For that, sorry, Angelica. 😦

With my sister and my cousins, I had fun! There were so many photographs, still, that I would share soon.


Photos by: TJ Ynzon, Shiella Mae De Guzman, Triny Ynzon and yours truly, Samantha De Guzman.

(But the most were photographed by Mr. Pogi, TJ Ynzon.)

Photos taken at: Lohas Hotel –  New Well Being Spa Resort in Clark, Pampanga

I bet the suite was a Korean Hotel. If you know how to read what’s on my left and right side, then it was.
The two “Pisceans,” Shiella and TJ.
This is Ate Triny. (Every time we enter the hotel, we never forget to take a photo of us at the doorway.)
TJ, can you help me read that? Look, Ate Triny will always be on the background. (Was that a mandatory for her?)
“Pathway to Heaven.” I really love the hotel’s ambiance! Even the light colors complement the place.
You just see Shiella’s look here. It’s like, “Ate, come on! No more changing of suits. Let’s jump and swim!” (Peace, sis!)
“Grabeeeeeh.” This, I think, was our first expression when we got a view of this. It’s on the center of the suites.
All right. I take account of what I said earlier. Forgive me, the look on my face was a blithe, too.
At the hotel’s resto. It was overwhelming to know that we were the first ones to arrive here and nobody’s eating aside from us.
SMILE and conquer the resto!
This was a Korean suite but I didn’t know that before we ordered here. Ha-Ha.

The menus look inviting, don’t they?

Have you ever been tied up to that Cafeteria Mia menu, Shiella?

The most impressive “strawberry shake” I saw in my whole life!
“SWEET & SPICY CHICKEN.” One thing I loved most about the hotel’s resto was that, their servings were king-sized! And that was an individual order, for goodness’ sake! I still remember it when I was already full after eating 3pcs.
P.S. We didn’t know that there were fries included in every order! Bonus! 
These two Pisceans look like “balikbayans.” Mafeeling! Ha-Ha 
That calamansi juice I was holding there was actually from the resto. We asked the crews if I can brought it with me at the hotel room. 
Here’s the story behind this blurry photo: The chefs and crews were all looking and smiling at us here while we were taking photos…that sort of freaked us out! 
One last shot before we enter the hotel…
Hooooray! After a tiring day comes a relaxing view. Hmmn…why I am taking photos of these two? I, too, must be taking a rest now.
“Click clack away.”
“My adorable sister, Shiella.” Beauty is fierce. It is up to us how we give people the perception of what we got.

Of course we are tired. We really are!
The Big Bang smile and The Big White Remote Control. 
“The Golden Chandelier.” TJ accidentally took this while he was wandering around and looking at the ceiling. The luminous effect is magnificent! (unedited photo)
Another shot of “The Golden Chandelier” by TJ Ynzon. I told you, he’s a good photographer! 
“Mirror, mirror on the wall. If you stop looking at me when I take photos, I’d better give a bet to you.”
Spot the “GHOST!”
I am “SAMthing Extraordinary!”
The “3 Marias.”
At the birthday event. Look at the balloons at the ceiling! Black, yellow and gray was the motif! You can take a grip and pop those balloons – they have prizes. But dang, I already popped 3 balloons and killed the audience’ eyes, WALL A PA REIGN. Gets? Ha-Ha 
Going back to the hotel room. We bought Mogu Mogu drinks for the evening!

These would be all for now. And as what I have promised, I would be posting more photos of us in our “Olympus” getaway soon. Pardon me for the early publishing of this post, yesterday. There was an Internet connection problem so I didn’t finish the post. Thanks to the autosave button, though. It was a big help!

P.S. Thank you for the continuous likes! Welcome to my new followers. =) Have a splendid day to all!
