Splash Mountain- City of Springs

Last May, we spent our honeymoon at City of Springs owned by Splash Mountain in Laguna. Our original plan was to go to Sundowners in Bolinao Pangasinan but it was already fully booked. So we decided to go somewhere else which is near from us.

It was actually a two-ride away from home but since it was our first time to go there, it took us 4 rides: A jeepney to Cubao, taxi to HM Transport,bus to Laguna then tricycle to resort. It only took us around 2 hours to get there. We arrived at the resort around 1pm. I already made my reservation and deposited 1k 3 days ahead. Upon arriving there,I paid our balance and they were kind enough to let us use the room before 2pm.

Reception Area

The place is quiet old but I like this kind of ambiance, away from loud city, from crowded place. It feels like nasa apartment lang kami.

We get the Deluxe Room. Of course, we booked the room which has queen-size bed but someone called me from the resort that the room was under repair so we will be using a room which has double single bed but we can actually move it and make it as a large bed.

Our room has indoor pool. Upon arriving, since I am very excited, I told the resort staff to open and fill the pool with water. The water was hot since it's from hot spring. The room is large enough "pwede pa tumumbling".It has decent bathroom and cool aircon. An old tv with cable,small ref and a table set. But sorry guys, there is no wifi there. Breakfast is not included, but you can bring any food and drinks that you want with no corkage fee! I love that.

You can order from their menu, but me thinks that packing and buying your food for your whole stay is much cheaper.

The indoor pool which is just around 3-4 feet.

Outside, you can see two big pools, one for adult and one for the kids. You can see the laguna lake at the veranda, which is very nice, the place is very neat! The first thing that we noticed, the lake doesn't produced any stinky smell, the water is very clean. Kudos to the municipal of Los Baños.

Kiddie Pool

After taking few dips at our inside pool and eating lunch we tried the pool outside. Hubby doesn't like the water because it's too hot for him. In the afternoon, we walk around the resort and buy some meryenda, we also went to their recreation area, youths were playing volleyball and basketball.Just like what I said earlier, the town was very clean. We roamed around the old municipal of Los Baños, I am fascinated how clean the town was.

Los Baños Covered Court

We spent two days and 1 night there. The air condition unit made me shiver, it rained on that night so we weren't able to go the pool so we just watched news. Next morning we took our last dip on the pool, eat lunch, and prepare for leaving.

Our stay was very relaxing. The place doesn't offer beautiful sceneries but for me, quiet place is what I've been looking for when vacationing, where me and my husband could talk about a lot of things, the worries that our wedding day gave us, and the future ahead of us. I don't like crowded places. So I definitely recommend this place if you are not into crowded places. You can go to the Splash Mountain resort which is near the city of springs, it has giant slide and 20-30+ pools.
They also have branch in Tagaytay

Some might think that I already abandoned this blog, well you are 100% correct! This year is the most special for me, because I got married last May 21! Anyway just wanted to share with you our pre-nup photos.

Anyway, bf and I got engaged last year, but the formal proposal with his family happened last January this year.I didn't expect that bf will throw a surprise "pamamanhikan" that day since we were already engaged but then, he still did. Since then, stress started to devour me for the preparation of our simple wedding.


I will also share to you how much my outfit was and how to save money in planning your prenup shoot . But of course if you have lots of money then BOOK A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER.

Photographer : Raymond & Che Jimenez
Location : La Mesa Eco Park
Assistant : My brother
Stylist : Me!

We decided to have our prenup at La mesa eco park. Entrance Fee is P50.00/head (I called them and ask if there's permit needed for photoshoot, the representative said the photographer needs to sign a waiver upon arrival at eco park, but we decided not to since lahat naman ng nakikita namin na nagphotoshoot hindi na nagwaiver lol), and we paid P500.00 for the cottage. 

Here's how you can save money if you are on a tight budget:

 1. Ask a friend who has a good camera (which loves photography) to become your photographer on your prenup photoshoot. 

2. Look for outfit online or at malls, simply choose your theme and match it with your outfit.

3. Search online what usually the poses of couples during prenup shoot. Practice it at home.

4. Look for a park near you or a place which is memorable to you and to your partner.

5. Bring props! Props can bring big difference specially if you are out of poses. hehe

6.Just be natural, laugh and talk to your partner while photographer is taking pictures. Be comfortable.

 Since we are being practical, we don't need super magandang picture, yung simple lang pwede na. So here's some of our pictures.

My husband's shirt was from Divisoria. P150 lang bes! And his old shorts. 
Shoes were from World Balance.
My dress was from fb online store which I bought around P250.00
Boots were from Payless and costs around P1500

Our first theme was kind of relax and quirky poses. Hence the color shade was blue.
Wag sa damuhan bes!

Second theme was more on the sweeter side and more formal.
All you need is props beh.
Second outfit was bought online at instagram, my dress was thrifted and cost around P120?
Shoes were from payless also which I got on sale for P250.00
Husband's outfit was bought from mall.
Earrings were from Divisoria too!
Lamang ang matangkad bes!
Sakit na tagiliran ko bes!

We create the props.

You always need to give your genuine smile. Pretend like, kilig na kilig kayo sa isa't isa kahit na in reality hirap na kayong magpose.

Ang here's a little solo poses :

My dress were bought from Robinson's Department store for around P800
Accessories were from divi and the props was a print out and cardboard.

 His coat was from divi too.

And the final theme was formal of course

Bouquet was actually for my bridesmaid, which was handly made by me.

And there you have it. Those were some of the pictures from our pre-nup. It can still be memorable even if you are on a tight budget. Just use your imagination and tips online. Preparations and the wedding day itself should be, not a financial burdensome to overcome but a celebration to bring great happiness to two people.
