Boat Rates, Pundaquit

My summer vacation started only last week, and I wasn't able to enjoy and join the summer fun of most people who could afford (with both time and money) to travel.  Yet even if I am quite late in my summer endeavors, I still want to feel the summer fun and wish to publish the updated boat rates in Pundakit (which was posted as a comment somewhere in my other blog a couple of months ago).

Here's a copy of that post, detailing the boat rates as provided by a baranggay ordinance. Violators may be fined or even have their permits cancelled.

SMALL BOAT (max of 4 pax) balikan/overnight
Pundakit to CAMARA island = P700
Pundakit to CAPONES = P1,000
Pundakit to Annawangin = P1,000
Pundakit to Talesayen = P1,500
Pundakit to Nagsasa = P1,800
Pundakit to Silanguin = P2,500

BIG BOAT (minimum of 10pax)
Pundakit to CAMARA island = P150/head
Pundakit to CAPONES = P200/head
Pundakit to Annawangin = P200/head
Pundakit to Talesayen = P300/head
Pundakit to Nagsasa = P400/head

Or you may also contact Manong Florate Lavesoria (who was my contact for previous trips) at 09108053388.

Persia Grill, SM North

Persia Grill, SM North

Loved the tuna belly dish, but not the kebab. I wish I had tried their
house blend (noticed it too late), so I just sipped brewed tea while my dad
and company drank San Mig Light. :)

A Veneto Napoli Pizzeria Ristorante

A Veneto Napoli Pizzeria Ristorante, Trinoma Mall

I first got acquainted with A Veneto, Glorietta back in 2005 (or early 2006), and loved it for being a real value for money especially for groups. A few years later, I introduced the resto to a pasta-lover friend, and since then she and another friend became regular customers of the place. But for about a couple of years already, I haven't been back in A Veneto.

On May 17, 2010, for a supposedly surprise dinner for a friend, I got re-acquainted with A Veneto, now to the third branch I would try out (the second being the Visayas Ave. branch) - Trinoma Mall. Not much difference, except for a less flashy set of wall paintings versus the nice mural in Glorietta.

I'll be back in A Veneto, especially for a group treat that gets everyone so full and the pocket still breathing. *burp*

Ponds and Pines View Resort

2010 May 12 Ponds and Pines

Ponds and Pines took my breath away. That is an exaggeration, but I really did love the place the moment I saw it.

Located in Nagbunga, Castillejos or San Marcelino (I don't even know, but it is located at the border), Zambales, somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

Aside from the pool, what I actually loved about the place is the spacious landscaped lawn. It is a great place for events, plus parking won't be a nightmare. ;)

Cris Aura Swimming Pool

2010 May 06 Cris Aura (Pool)

Hidden somewhere in Magsaysay, Castillejos, Zambales. I think they charge P50 per person. They close at 6:00 PM, but it was indicated in their rules and regulations that they'll charge you extra for staying beyond that time. I guess it has to be arranged in advance.

Cris Aura offers separate pools for kids and adults. However, the slide is located at the adult pool, and using it plunges you to some 6 feet of water, so better get the life jacket ready if you can't swim but wish to enjoy the ride.
