We woke up early morning today to go on an out-of-town trip since it's Maundy Thursday and, as such, there are only a few shops open today. We went to Latian Kay Parang Resort, an obscure place perfectly tucked away in the middle of nowhere in Bocaue, Bulacan. What we initially thought to be a resort as wonderfully developed as Island Cove down south in Cavite turned out to be not so. We had a lot of trouble finding it at first, what with their inky-dinky signs that were hard to follow, plus the place was totally decrepit. The place had potential but it was a sorry sight.

There were some people with kids enjoying the pool, walking and running around which was nice. After going around for a bit we settled inside this large "hut" with two floors (it's like a separate dining place right beside the Bocaue river). Here are some of the pictures I took of the mangrove growing on the river banks:

It was peaceful and except for my younger sister who kept complaining about the mosquitoes, we settled in quite nicely. There were some fishes swimming around but they weren't biting the bait we were dangling from the fishing rods the resort provided for us so I just watched some boats pass by and tried to read my book. After a while we had a hearty lunch and a very short rest period before heading home thinking we were better off playing with the dog and watching our newly bought DVDs.
