Cagsawa Ruins

My friend Jane and her family gave us a tour in some of the tourist spots in Albay province last March 22. Our first stop was in Cagsawa Ruins. Passing by the road to Cagsawa, I can't believe how much damage the typhoon Reming did to the place. It was so developed when I left and now the road look like this. Some of the houses were washed away by flood that came from heavy rain and the lava from Mayon Volcano. Here are some snapshots we took during our stay there. Here's Jane family with me and the kids, EJ was sleeping.
They still have the swimming pool, my daughter freaked out because we didn't bring her bathing suit and she really wanted to plunge in the water.

Do you like those orchids for sale? hehehe



I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Baldon and Siapno family for spending quality time with us while were there. Thanks also to Haidz and Mike for your wonderful friendship. We're gonna miss you guys for sure..

  11. Hi Rose,
    I love your photos. Your family is a picture of love and joy and I hope it stays that way forever. Your children are so fortunate to have parents like you and Joops who take good care of all their needs. I am so happy to note that you actually enjoyed your vacation in the Philippines in spite of all the hassles at the DFA. Praise the Lord for all the wonderful things He has done for you and your family. Thanks for the wonderful post. God bless you all always.

  12. Hi Rose,
    Those are wonderful photos of your vacation in the Philippines. Your husband and kids seemed to have enjoyed their stay at Bicol with all the wonderful places you visited. Did your husband like the taste of Mazapan sweets and other pili delicacies? They are better than chocolates. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
