Torn

Sheesh! I'm being an OC again in planning our 1st wedding anniversary celebration.

As you all remember I was thinking of going to Subic specifically in Grande Island for an overnight stay but then I decided to have a dinner instead in Spiral restaurant in Sofitel (since I avail their membership which is good for a year).

But now as I'm contemplating hard on the two plans that I had, I really like the idea of an out-of-town trip. I'm excited to go outside of the city and explore places. Whereas having a dinner in Spiral, I can always do that in the next 12 months being a member.

Arrrghhh! What to do?! Help me fellow bloggers. What's your POV on my dilemma? Cast your votes below:

Thanks in advance! Ü

subic! subic! subic!=) been to zoobic safari sis. sumakay kami dun sa jeep & you get to feed the lions na humahabol sa jeep. there's an area din where you park katabi ng mga ostrich and they put their faces sa window ng car mo.

we've wall-climbed there na din, hiked, rode horses and swam sa el kabayo falls. we've done slide-for-life, which is my favorite memory of subic! and of course, di mawawala ang shopping!=)

wow! daming activities ha?! naku sis jan, malapit mo na ako ma-convince...hehehe.

So far, all are in favor sa subic. I'm waiting for others pa ;)

I'll go for the Subic out of town trip. Kami din next month mag-cecelebrate ng 2nd anniversary. Hindi naman kami makapag out of town with a baby in tow. kaya ang gagawin nalang namin eh 3 days 2 nights sa isang hotel in Manila na malapit sa mall para bonding kami with our baby.

Hi Ann! Thanks much :)

Hmm...looks like were off to Subic then ;)

I'll wait for others muna...hehehe.

voted for an out of town trip din :) It's more fun!

Mec said...

sis... always opt for trips :)

travelling doesn't just enrich you personally, it also provides enough hassle and opportunity for conversations... and to get to know hubby more :)

i get the fancy dining experience can be nice... but what is nice compared to having a blast?

out of town.
iba talaga ang bonding pag nasa trip kayo. and you get to spend overnight there. wink wink. ;)

Out of town trip would be my vote. You can easily go to Spiral some other time. It's harder to go out of town when you have kids na so savour this moment and samantalahin!. pero sis, I do not recommend grande island eh. Have been there last summer and medyo di ako happy sa amenities and service, plus the food, di masarap. Hehehe, sorry ha, personal opinion ko lang naman. I would even vote for Tagaytay na lang like The Boutique Hotel. Google it, check yung I Lust (hehehe) room, ganda and perfect for honeymooners like you! Tsaka maraming puede pang puntahan. If you plan to laze around lang, parang Grande Island is really not that nice to go to, pangit ng pool eh. Tapos you cant barely swim sa beach, ang bato. If you want beach naman, I would recommend beaches in San Juan batangas like La Luz.

been to subic although that was ages ago pa..once you're there na you can't make pasyal na elsewhere kase island yun and may time ang ferry pagdock dun..and if pasyal ka outside you have to pay additional pa for the ferry.
although i voted for subic too! dami naman hotels sa subic.you might want to check on those.

AEC said...

hi joanne--lahat kami, subic ang vote! :) and in subic, you can go to clark (via SCTEX) and eat at C! italian restaurant. sarap daw dun talaga. http://www.citaliandining.com/content/index.php

I voted for the dinner at Spiral. For me, a first wedding anniversary is very special and with an intimate dinner, you can really focus your attention on each other and have a quiet time together na parang bagong kasal..hehehe. Pag out-of-town trip kasi, you can be distracted sa mga sights na makikita mo and minsan stressful din. ;) You can always go to Subic din naman anytime of the year ;)

I voted for out-of-town trip!

This is your chance habang wala pa kayong kids! Pag may kids na, it's fun at a different level pero you won't be able to focus on each other na. You can still have romantic dinner naman in Subic :).

When the kids come, you may not be able to go out of town na kayo lang, so you can just have dinner and leave the kids with the grandparents when you're away. Sa mga next anniv na ito. :)

One last thing...from your post, mukhang talagang you're more inclined to go on the out of town trip talaga...SO GO! :)
