A Super Summer with Soda Stream

Photo taken from
I plan to have a super summer during the school break.  Well, I think everyone of us deserve one since this is the perfect time to go out with your family because of the very inviting season.  

No kids going to school... no traffic... bosses seems on a vacation mode. Ahhh! The joy of summer.

Now, the only dilemma I'm facing is how and what will make this year's vacation a truly super one!  Hmmm... as usual, go online for ideas and suggestions.  I was site hopping from one local resort to another and was still undecided.  

Then, I got a news feed from via facebook that she'll be giving away a Soda Stream starter kit.  For people who haven't heard of this amazing gadget, it is actually a non-electronic portable machine that lets you to make your own soda.  All you need is clean water and the flavoring (included in the kit).  You can also try using your fave juice drink and mix it with whatever your heart desires. 

Now, here's the super answer I'm looking for.  I bet my husband haven't heard about this since the only time he checks the kitchen is to get some food or look for a missing piece from his toy collection.  With the Soda Stream, I plan to surprise him with a new cocktail or two.  He's a heavy drinker--- of iced tea, that is.  So I will let him try my home-made soda filled with love and flying kisses that I will call "Tea-mptation of Wife soda"

If I got two thumbs up from him, I will bring the Soda Stream to our family outing so my parents, brothers and sisters can also get a taste of such great "foodiescovery"

Just seeing my love ones enjoy the goodness of what I will offer to them will be the best reason for me to have a super summer this year!

La Virgina, you rock!

Last week, I did one courageous thing that I never imagined I can do--- hang myself in a zipline more than 30 feet high from the ground.

And yes, I did it during our company trip at La Virginia Hotel and Resort.  Set in 6 hectares of secluded grounds yet only 2 hours from downtown Metro Manila, La Virginia offers one of the largest privately-owned natural getaways in Batangas, with the clean elegance of Philippine and modern architecture. A getaway from life's pressures in the healing tranquility of an environment that truly feels "away from it all". If you have ever spent time at a tropical plantation, you know what we mean. If not, come and discover a refreshingly different experience.

I am recommending this to all my friends especially those who want to have a different summer getaway without going too far.  You can swim, trek and have a picnic with your family in this budget-friendly destination.
