A Pause from the Busy Metro

It was indeed relaxing…

This is what I particularly uttered when I and my coworkers were heading back to Manila last Monday.   This was after we spent the whole day lazing around Casa Luminaria, located in Barangay Talisay, Lipa, Batangas, an hour and a half away from the busy Metro Manila.  I was a bit surprised that a haven of tranquility like Casa Luminaria exists so near Manila.  It is an idyllic place to relax, bond and chill with your friends, colleagues and/or family.

It was the generous owners of the company that I am working for who granted the rest of our Management Team to relax for a day and do nothing.  The only agenda in proceeding to Casa Luminaria is to be calm, unwind, have a break and chill out.

Some took a relaxing dip in the pool, some simply had a calming nap at the hammocks, some enjoyed playing cards, some had tranquil moments at the open-air lounge chairs, some snoozed on the outdoor mats and some simply enjoyed the soothing sound of nature.  Me? I simply sat down and paused.  As in paused during the whole time I was there.  No work, no analysis, no hassle, no physical exertion and no deep thinking.

Sarap tumanga…
