Weekly Photo Challenge: SUMMER

Hey guys, I’m back! I was away for about a month, and I definitely missed a lot of blogging and photo challenges.

I traveled to the Philippines to attend to my brother’s wedding, and also to take a short vacation from work. I just got back last Friday.

I’m glad about this week’s photo challenge theme, SUMMER, because that’s what I just did – a summer break!


For this week I’m taking you to JED’s ISLAND RESORT where we spent a day having fun – eating, singing, swimming, and taking pictures. A great way to spend summer!

Jed’s Island Resort is one of the most popular resorts in Bulacan. There are so many activities that can be done inside the resort, aside from swimming. A family can rent a videoke machine, and can also go for boating, fishing and horseback riding. There’s a place for billiards and basketball.

The kids will love the different characters scattered around the resort.

A great place for shutter-happy like us.


Swimming time!

What a lovely day!

    Jeds Island resort offer 24 hours service with WI-FI and no brownout :-). Live bands are available every Saturday nights during summer season. One thing that makes this resort standout is it allows bringing in foods and drinks with no extra cost. Basketball court is also available at Php 250 per hour at day time and Php 350 per hour during night time.
