A year before I do: Pao's Bday Vacation at Canyon Cove

11.16.2012 - Just a couple of days after Paolo's flight back to Manila, I booked an overnight stay at Canyon Cove as one of my birthday presents for him. Yup, you've read it right. Paolo celebrated his birthday that day and because we love escaping from stress and since he missed the sight of a beach or feel a striking heat for a couple of months, I went on buying that canyon cove sale on Ensogo and forced my then jet-lagged fiance to land travel for three hours from Navotas to Nasugbu.
Feeling lovey-dovey, we wore matching outfits (the first time we did in 8 YEARS) just because its his birthday. Haha (Lovechic levels lang). We got our top from UNIQLO's Pre launch party last Nov 14, as well as his pants. (Uh, it was actually a gift, from me. haha sorry I don't usually shower Pao with presents but since this will be his last birthday as my boyfriend and he just came back from the Canada / US so okay I did) Haha.
I was surprised to see how beautiful Canyon Cove is. It was heavenly.
The view from the room's veranda is so relaxing. I regret why I only booked an overnight stay in this place.
Love Chic. Haha (PS: Funny coz Paolo doesn't like doing blogger poses on cam. I'm happy he did that day.)

We had the chance to fully enjoy the sun the day after. :)

It was a well deserved treat not only for Paolo but for me as well. It was a great time for us to enjoy each others' company (that we missed so much) and  be ecstatic on the coming year. Exactly 12 months after his birthday, we'll be back to Batangas again, not only to celebrate his day, but celebrate a bigger event - OUR WEDDING.

Aaaargh. I feel anxiety and excitement at the same time. In 12 months time, my life would change. Our lives will.
Thanks @createAnts for my well organized checklist. Now i feel the pressure, 12 months before the wedding  ❤ @pgperalta
And official planning begins. (Thanks so much Create Ants for this wonderful wedding guide. They're lovely)

Anyway, shall be posting a blog giveaway in a couple of hours! Stay tuned :)

Much Love,
