Saturday, still being a no-work day for me was spent in one of the favorite places that we like to go to Sierra Madre Resort and Convention Center in Tanay, Rizal. This was the place where a few months ago my family “walked on clouds” and walked on a hanging bridge.

These may be common to some who are blessed living near mountains and the waterfront where the air is cool but for us city dwellers with allergies and asthma, this is definitely a treat, specially during days when the weather is blah.

The children enjoying their hiking on a trail down below where I stood under a shade. It was already drizzling a bit and they were in a hurry so my photo was a bit blurred.

We also enjoyed having some snacks under the trees after we had a hearty breakfast in the place’s restaurant because of the drizzles.

Brrr! It sure was a chilly morning!

It was already raining in the mountains in the background.

I do wish we have stayed longer but a lunch date with the in-laws was scheduled so we had to go back. Oh well, all good things come to an end too soon, I guess.

Nothing compares to fresh mountain air. It’s nice that you didn’t let the drizzle damper your mood for some outdoor fun.

The children enjoyed the drizzles which even made the weather very cold, so these drizzles were even “helpful” 😀

They did enjoy the cool breeze. I have long wanted to experience sleeping there overnight but we haven’t tried it yet.

Sure, hope we can go there. The food not that great (magbaon na lang ng iba, hehe) but the place definitely is wonderful for the kids to explore.

Its a bit far lang and sometimes there is no signal pa for the mobile phone 😀
