Happy Thursday! Oh how fast time flies! It seemed like the week took forever but really it’s almost ending! Looking back to last Saturday, I finally had my first getaway for the year. Hurray for that! Though it was just a few hours, I really enjoyed it. Together with my newly-found CIO-PAO family, we spent the night at Cebu Westown Lagoon. This resort is located right at the heart of Mandaue City just beside the MO2 Resto Bar. If I’m not wrong, this may be the very first resort within the city. And with this, Cebu Westown Lagoon is now making its name with locals and tourists coming in and out and experiencing how it is to getaway from the city in the city. How I wish all my weekends are this kind of fun!

It was a night of meeting new people, getting to know each other, planning sessions for the upcoming extracurricular activities at work, food, and of course, fun, fun, fun! The place was honestly beautiful with its unique architecture and design. It’s the perfect place for summer getaways, family gatherings, and random trips with your friends. Although their rates are quite expensive at P1200 ($27.18) for a small cottage and P300 ($6.80) waterpark entrance fee, Cebu Westown Lagoon is worth the try and experience. I would definitely go back soon with my boys for a short family getaway. I’d love to go there during daytime for better view and photos!
