Thunderbird Resorts in Poro Point

Last Tuesday, my hubby and I together with my youngest brother and my niece Vernice went to the immigration office in Poro Point, San Fernando La Union to pay the annual fee of my hubby. I asked my brother to drive for us. It was a two hour drive from where we live. On the way, we stopped by at Jollibee in Agoo, La Union to have lunch. Jollibee is Vernice's favorite fast food restaurant.

After we ate we proceeded to the immigration. It took maybe 15 minutes to wait for hubby's annual report to be done and we went out of the immigration office around 2PM. Before leaving the entrance gate I asked the guard where is the Thunderbird Resorts and he told me the direction. It's only about 500 meters away from the immigration office so we drove there. Before leaving, Vernice insisted to get my camera and took our photos.

When we reached the entrance of the resort, we asked the guard to let us in because we wanted to have a sight-seeing. He obliged and opened the entrance gate. It's a good thing they don't require and entrance fee. Thunderbird Resorts is located in a very spacious land and the buildings of the hotels are Mediterranean style patterned after the buildings in Greece. If you are there, it looks like you're in a foreign country. I also read in the internet that this place is where the celebrity John Estrada and his bride got married last year. 

We feasted our eyes with the nice view and took some photos. I just wished we were able to see the inside of the hotel too. One of these days, I would like to go back there with hubby and spend a night just to experience the beauty and quietness of the place. They have also a golf course there. So if you want to be away from the busyness of life in the city and you just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, then Thunderbird Resorts is the place to visit.

Li'l Photographer

The following photos were taken by my 3 year old niece, Vernice. I just taught her how to use the camera and take pics 3 days ago and since then she got addicted taking photos. She always request me to take our pics. Hubby said I created a monster, lol! Yesterday when we were in Manaoag and she was taking our pics, people were staring at us and they were all smiling. Perhaps they were fascinated seeing a small girl taking pictures. In fairness, she take good pics better than my hubby, lol!

Meet our cute, li'l 3 year old photographer, Vernice Julia. She has the potential to be a good photographer in the future.
