It's already summer season in the Philippines and everybody, I'm sure, is planning to take some vacations, so where will you spend it? I planned to spend my summer in Manila to visit my sister and cousin, sounds weird considering that summer in Manila is really punishing and morbid, hahhaa. But I want to spend a grand time with my sister and cousin.hehehe. How about you?is summer excites you?

I love going to the beach too especially during summer. But this summer, the heat of the sun is extremely damaging that I prepare to go to the mall instead. Pangasinan is such a nice place, I passed their once, when I and my colleagues went to Baguio for our retreat.I love to visit Pangasinan especially the 100 islands. Maybe someday.

My first wakeboarding experience - That was in CWC when I tried wakeboarding for the first time.
Hello jlamela :) Yeah summer always excites me, especially during my whole student years because after all the studying, finally I'll have a two-month rest to enjoy myself and my time with the family. Usually we go to different places in Luzon like Baguio and Tagaytay since we prefer to be in cold places than in beaches :) My most unforgettable summer would be just last year in Camarines Sur when I tried wakeboarding for the first time and I met one of the world's greatest wakeboarder, Reuben Buchanan. ;)) During that time we also went to Donsol, Sorsogon to experience diving with the whalesharks. Compared to all my summers, I think the last year's summer for me is the best because that is my last summer as a student and I am with the whole kinsfolk and I tried different things I have never done in my entire life. Now that I am setting myself off to job-hunting, I don't think there will be summers like those anymore. I have to face reality that I have to find a job to support my family. My graduation is on March 26 and though it's still two more weeks I already miss being a student. But of course I know I have to grow and I'll surely miss those summers as a student. :) My advice to all the students: Enjoy your summer, but do worthwhile and unforgettable experiences than just sitting in the couch watching TV. Try something daring and new or do a charity work. Those summers are just once in a lifetime so better make it memorable.

This is a subject that is really weighing heavily on my mind recently. Last year our family didn't have the opportunity to have a vacation, so this year it is something that we are seriously planning on doing. We are seriously considering visiting a beach this year, although we haven't decided where. A big part of me thinks that we are probably going to end up at Virginia Beach because that is where my cousin lives and we haven't seen her in over a year.

Hello! Yes, like you I always wanted to go to a place with a full view of a mountain or a lake or a river or a beach, because it is so relaxing and peaceful and I can think better.

We spend usually our hott summer in OOty an hillstation in india,chennai. We have our apple estate and u can get the best apples over there. Its best place for me as our summer are real bad. Ooty is such a cool weather,it attracts many tourists too. Also during the season, there will be flower shows which adds more beauty to the hillstation!

I'm planning to go on a road trip this summer going to different beaches. Maybe i will head out to the northern part of the Philippines. La Union area would be great with its surfing sites. I wish I would have enough time to go on vacation due to some work issues. I hope to work on my plans on the last week of march.

At the seaside...my fav place of course. i love the beach, waves, the sun. It is all fantastic. having a drink by the sea is just incredible. in the summer I always go sunbathing somewhere near the sea I could do it for a whole month.

Taking a leisure trip to a seaside is always a welcome and relaxing welcome during summer season. We can feel inner peace and the environment is so cool and soothing, but I don't do something when i am in the beach because I am afraid of the ultra violet radiation even if I put on sunblock.

Beach is a good idea this summer, but since i grew up in the coastal area, i want something different this summer. Love to take vacation in other parts of the Philippines, like in historical Vigan or Camarines provinces.

I want to go to Manila also but I was planning to just stay here so that I won't be wasting money. My plan is still unsure but if given a chance, I'll go to MOA... ^_^

Ahhh summer, more work and a/c at the office while it scorches outside. seems like a fair trade for an almost non-existent vacation summer used to excite me during my student days but now that i'm working, notsomuch
